Early in the season the Dodgers with Kenta Maeda on the mound would be “money in the bank”, but he hasn’t recorded a recorded quality start since early July and the Boys in Blue have dropped four of his last six starts. The padres have held their own in recent matches against the Dodgers taking four of the last seven and may hold some value tonight. Let’s see what Predictem’s MLB handicapper is playing this game.
Both clubs are trending upwards with Washington winners of three straight and the Mets winners of a ridiculous 14 of their last 15 contests. Another trend to consider is the home side has taken the last six in this series including four consecutive victories by the Mets. Stroman didn’t look sharp in his NYM debut, but he was pitching on extended rest. Get Dan’s take and moneyline pick.
Two teams heading south meet in Boston tonight with the Angels visiting the Red Sox. Los Angeles has dropped six straight and Boston nine of their last ten. Chris Sale gets the start for Red Sox and he’d been horrendous for the most part since late June allowing five or more runs in five of his last seven starts. Dillon Peters has been OK in his lone two starts this season but that’s a small sample size. Read on to get Dan’s suggested bet.
The Brewers will be looking to get the brooms out tonight in Pittsburgh when they play the final game of a three-game set against the Pirates. The home side has the advantage on paper in starting pitching for the finale with Trevor Williams back numbers against the Milwaukee lineup holding them to a .125 average in 35 at bats, but can you back a team that is on a 2-14 run? Get Dan’s betting insight and free pick.
The Braves will look to Mike Foltynewicz and his 6.37 ERA to help them get back on traclk after losing three of their last four. The Twins are on a nice roll, winners of seven of their last eight recent games feasting on a couple bottom feeding teams. The betting line for this game is on the rise with some boards showing MINN as -160 favorite. Will Dan lay the big number? Read on to get his betting prediction.
