  • I locking down the Cubs in this one. Even though Kyle Hendricks has a terrible overall ERA on the road, he is coming off his best road start of the year and is now 2-0 with a skinny 0.36 ERA in his last three starts overall. He is on a roll and should be able to keep an inconsistent Washington offense under wraps. On the flip side, Jeremy Hellickson has been a mess for the Nats so far as he has an 8.04 ERA at home and he has gone 0-2 with a 6.28 ERA in his last three starts. The Cubs certainly have an offense that can do damage against him, especially on the road where they have averaged over 6.00 rpg so far. The Cubs are 4-1 in Hendricks last 5 road starts vs. Nationals and that seals the deal. Take the Cubs here on Sunday Night Baseball

  • Another Pomeranz start another Pomeranz fade. Drew Pomeranz is an absolutley brutal MLB pitcher. I am shocked he still has a job in the bigs. But for as long as he does, I will continue to profit off of fading him. Especially on the road. Take the easy money with the D-backs

  • Love the dodgers in this Spot. The Dodgers are rolling right now, L.A. has won 21 of the last 29 meetings and the Dodgers are 6-2 in the last eight meetings at Great American Ballpark. Buehler has been great hurling quality outings in each of his first two career starts against the Reds and the right-hander is 3-0 with a 2.59 ERA over his last five starts. With Cincy averaging 1.75 runs per game with Mahle on the mound, Ill take my chances with the Dodgers on the road in this NL battle on Saturday.

    My Pick: Los Angeles -143 50%

  • I am going with the Rockies in this match up. Nola is no doubt the more talented pitcher but he sure isn't passing the eye test in his recent starts. On top of that The Phillies have cooled off recently, losing three consecutive games against the Brewers heading into Fridays game. Also, while Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela doesnt have strong numbers overall, he is much better on the road where he features a 2-0 record and a 3.31 ERA on the season away from Coors. The Rockies are swinging the bats well, and I expect them to generate enough offense to take this one on the road.

  • Its tough to go against such a good pitcher like Snell but The Yankees continue to find ways to win games despite their multiple key injuries. A different hitter seems to step up every night and they continue to receive outstanding pitching. They just won two of three in Tampa Bay last week, and they limited the Rays to only 11 runs in the three contests. To add to all of that, Yankee Stadium has not been kind to Rays starter Blake Snell. He stands at 1-4 with a terrible 5.63 ERA in his eight career starts in the Bronx, and the Yankees continue to thrive at the plate. I like The Yanks and the under here.

    My Pick: New York +112 & Under 8 50%

  • Im taking the Brew Crew and plus money for the second consecutive days. Milwaukee shook off whatever three-game funk it had in a pair of losses at Chicago and the opener of its series at Philadelphia to get back to its winning ways. The Brewers have won 10 of 13 after a middling start, and with Yelich back in form, the hedge is they finally give Chacin a margin of error to let him pitch effectively. Chacins track record against NL East opponents and series openers also give confidence in the Brewers pushing their winning streak to four games.

  • I am going with the Braves here. Even though they just got smacked last night by this cards team I like the pitching match up they get here. Atlanta outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. is 6-for-21 with two homers during his current five-game hitting streak, and in 151 career games has 34 homers, 87 RBIs and a .901 OPS. Shortstop Dansby Swanson has reached base in 15 consecutive games, hitting .298 with four RBIs, three doubles and a .761 OPS in that span. The Cardinals are 1-4 in their last five games against starters with WHIPs under 1.15, 1-6 in their last seven road games against teams with winning home records, and 2-5 in the last seven meetings between the two teams. Atlanta is 5-2 in its last seven against the National League Central and 6-2 in Sorokas last eight starts. All the signs point to the Braves in this one, so dont over think it and take Atlanta

  • I love love love the Yanks and their Young stud German here. German has a 3.25 FIP ERA, so its not as if hes pitching over his head at this point in time. Cashner is in a similar situation as his 4.83 FIP ERA is about a half-run worse than his current mark. The Yankees are still getting by despite so many key players on the injured list at this point. Theres still power for New York and Baltimore gives up a ton of homers: that gives the Yankees the upper hand in this contest. I not only like the ML but will be playing the run line -1.5 here

    My Pick: New York -235 50%

  • I like the Bucks at home in this spot. All season and including the playoff the Bucks have played significantly better at home. So the fact that they are at home and have pretty much dominated the Raptors all season makes this -6.5 a lock for me. I dont think the Raptors will be able to match up with the Bucks and their depth. Look for a double digit win here

  • I love the Giants as the dogs here in this game. Samardzija has been solid against the Reds throughout his career and he led the Giants to victory in his last start versus Cincy at Great American Ballpark. Despite giving up three straight homers in the first. Jeff bounced back and kept the Reds in check while the offense gave him enough runs to even it up. I think this will be a tight game but I think the Giants get enough out of their starter to get the win. Take San Francisco in this battle at AT&T Park on Saturday night.

    My Pick: San Francisco +122 50%

  • I like the Rockies to get a win here at home Saturday. Lucchesi has pitched well against the Rockies during his short career, but it hasnt translated into wins for the Padres. Especially at Coors field. I think the Rockies offense is starting to come around while the Padres are struggling to find a rhythm. The Padres have also struggled in this series as of late, losing each of the last four meetings and they are just 1-4 in Lucchesis last five starts against Colorado. San Diego is also 1-4 in their last five trips to Coors Field, so I like my chances with the Rockies at home in this NL West showdown on Saturday evening.

  • The Braves have been a disappoint so far this season being under .500. The Braves have really struggled to pitch this year and it shows with the ballooned ERA of their starters. While on the other hand the Diamondbacks pitching staff has been better then expected. They have allowed a major league-low 12.96 percent of their 54 inherited runners to score this season. Atlantas bullpen, on the other hand, is terrible. Gausman started the season hot through three starts and has been a disaster ever since. The Braves are 1-5 in their last six against winning opponents, 1-5 in their last six against the National League West, and 1-4 in the last five meetings between the two teams. I like the Dbacks to scrap out a win here.

  • I like the Phillies here. While Kansas City has shown flashes at time The Royals have struggled all season long to find consistency. And even with the struggles of the Indians, they are already double-digit games off the pace in the AL Central and we are only about a quarter of the way through. Kansas City has their work cut out for them and Keller has to improve for that to turn around. He entered Friday leading the league in free passes issued and hes handing out 5.3 walks per nine innings this season compared to 3.2 per nine last year. Eflin has been much better at home (1.17 ERA in 23 innings) than on the road (5.21 ERA in 19 innings) this season. I like the Phillies at -126

    My Pick: Philadelphia -126 50%

  • I think this game will be close all the way until the end. I like the Rockets getting 6 points here.

  • I like the Dodger here at home. The Dodgers have had Atlanta number of late, dating back to the 2018 playoffs and continuing on Monday. An in-form Ryu should be able to keep that trend going. Atlanta is 8-21 in its last 29 at Los Angeles. The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last five against winning opponents, 5-1 in their last six that are the second in a series, 64-31 in their last 95 against the National League East, and 28-11 in the last 39 meetings between the two teams. Go with the Hot hand here in the Dodgers
