  • The Cardinals need a win and they are looking to their Veteran Wainwright to get that for them in this one. The Cardinals play better at home and Wainwright certainly pitchers better in St. Louis. Mengden has struggle to stick in the rotation for the A's and that is for good reason. He has struggled with missing bats and gives up solid contact a lot. Look for the Cards bat to take advantage of this and the crowd to give Wainwright a lift in this one.

    My Pick: St. Louis -140 60%

  • I like the Nats here in this spot to get another win in a crucial time of year for them. They need to start getting hot and beating teams that they should beat. The Marlins despite what theyve done this year are one of them. Turner answered an 0-for-11 slump by hitting safely in five straight games. Corbin pitched a gem against Miami on May 25 with a four-hit shutout. He is 2-1 with a 3.72 ERA in seven starts against the Marlins and has held Starlin Castro hitless in eight at-bats. The Nationals are 4-1 in their last five against opponents with winning percentages under .400, 4-1 in Corbins last five starts against the National League East, and 25-9 in the last 34 meetings between the two teams. Miami is 1-4 in its last five against losing opponents. too many factors are going against the marlins here as I see the Nationals winning this one with ease.

  • I thought this would open a lot higher for the Rangers here so I am hopping all over -104. The Tigers have struggled at home, losing 36 of their last 51 games. They have also struggled with Boyd on the mound, losing his last four starts. The Rangers have one of the most potent line ups and it continues to mash the ball out of the park. They have also done well against AL Central teams, winning seven of their last 10 meetings against them. I will look for them to continue their hot streak with Minor on the mound and make it 5 straight victories.

    My Pick: Texas -104 60%

  • I love the Rockies here in this contest. Rockies starter German Marquez enters this one with confidence after tossing eight innings of one-run ball at Dodger Stadium in his previous start. On top of that, Marquez tallied a complete game shutout against the Giants in the only meeting this season. San Francisco is very inconsistent offensively, and are struggling to find pieces that stick.
    I fully expect the Rockies line up to torch Samardzija in this one. Gimmie the Rockies here

  • I am going with the Dodgers and their Rookie Tony Gonsolin here. Despite the series opening win against these dodges the Diamondbacks are starting to slip after their surprising performance in both ends of the field for most of the season. They have dropped seven out of their last ten games and are looking for answers. D-Backs starter Taylor Clarke was just rocked for six runs against the low-scoring Giants in his previous start, and the rookie right-hander owns an ugly 8.44 ERA in his four starts this month. Plus the dbacks have trouble defending home field. I will look for the dodgers line up to support the Rookie here.

    My Pick: Los Angeles -138 60%

  • The Angels are getting hot at the plate and should continue that trend with Wacha on the mound here. Wacha has struggled badly this season and he has been up and down in his two starts since returning to the rotation. The Cardinals have been similarly inconsistent as they string together hot stretches followed by miserable play that makes them look completely lost. Los Angeles has been playing well of late and they entered Thursday back over the .500 mark and within striking distance for the second wild card spot. I will look for Mike Trout and company keep it rolling

    My Pick: Los Angeles -112 60%

  • I like the Nationals here. Hard to trust a guy who is making his first start even with Keuchels talent. He should be a good asset for them going forward but I dont think he is hot from the start. I will look for the nationals to at least put up 5 runs on him. Gimme Strasburg and the Nats at home ehre

  • I like the Mariners at homer here. Both teams have been dreadful this season but the Mariners a little less than the Orioles. The Orioles had a better shot in this one had Means been able to take the mound but with him likely out until after the All-Star break, its a major blow to an already thin staff. Baltimore designated Dan Straily for assignment on Thursday as well, so hes not an option going forward more than likely. While on the bright side Mike Leake is 3-0 in his last four starts despite giving up plenty of long balls. Given the Mariners are at home here, give them a slight edge in this contest.

    My Pick: Seattle -135 60%

  • I like the Brewers in the spot to bounce back and get the win. The Padres have actually been better on the road this season, and they hold an 19-20 home record entering Mondays play. While the Padres have had their issues pitching, Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff just limited the Astros to three runs on four hits in seven innings in Houston in his latest start, and he has conceded three or fewer runs in eight out of his last nine starts. The Padres currently have a fatigued bullpen after a high-scoring series in Denver this past weekend. The Padres just allowed 48 runs in four games against the Rockies. Take the Brewers to get a win here

    My Pick: Milwaukee -164 60%

  • I like the mojo the Dback got goin right now and Merrill Kelly has some of that goin on. Kelly only gave up a single run in each of his previous two outings, including a career-best 10-strikeout performance in his last home outing against the Mets on June 2. The Rockies starter just got blown up and hasnt looked good at all recently. Colorado is 3-7 in Senzatelas last 10 starts on five days of rest. The Diamondbacks are 17-8 in their last 25 against winning opponents. Take the Dbacks here

  • I gotta go with the Braves here. Jacob deGrom has great numbers against the Braves in his career, but he has been a shade of his former self and is facing an Atlanta offense that is absolutely on fire at the moment. They have averaged 9.11 rpg over their last nine games. While I dont see them scoring 9 I do like them to get to deGrom. The Mets are 14-24 on the road and 0-5 in deGroms last five road starts. take the Braves here

  • I like Verlander and the Astros RL here. I think they have no problem putting up runs off of DeSclafani in this one. I also dont see the slumping Reds hitters getting to Verlander. The Astros ace is almost a lock to go seven innings and the Pen can shut down any lineup. I like a 7-3 kind of game

    My Pick: Houston -162 60%

  • I like how the Pirates are fighting recently but this Braves team is proving time and time again that they are too much to handle. The Braves are starting to get better starting pitching to go along with their potent line up and that spells trouble here. Pittsburgh has dropped eight out of their last ten games, while Atlanta has put together a nice 6 game winning streak. Julio Teheran is on an incredible run considering what he looked like earlier this season, allowing one or zero earned runs in seven consecutive starts. The combo of Teheran on the mound and the Braves bats producing the way they are, Take the Braves here and sprinkle a little on the Run Line

  • Best two words in sports, GAME SEVEN! Lets go baby this one should be a good one. I a, siding with the home team Bruins in this one. I still cant believe that the Blues Organization printed shirts and posted an ad in the paper congratulating their team on winning this thing before the fat lady had sung. I think that karma alone kills them. The Bruins have been one of the best teams in the league all year and Tuukka Rask has been the best goalie in the postseason so far. Jordan Binnington has been tough this year, but he has been a bit weaker in the postseason. He had just six losses in the Regular season, but 10 so far in the playoffs. Take the Bruins to raise the cup tonight

  • Lockin in the Phillies here. They are a much better team at home and I think they can do enough damage off of Clarke to get the job done.
