The Astros will look to even up the series with a victory tonight at Minute Maid Park in Houston. They send out veteran Wade Miley who at home has a 2.31 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in two starts this season. Read on to see our MLB handicapper Zank’s break down of the numbers and his suggested play.
The Brewers shook off three straight losses in St. Louis and took out their frustrations on the Mets, who watched ace pitcher Jacob DeGrom get shelled for the third consecutive start as Milwaukee coasted to a 10-2 rout of the Mets in Queens. Can the Mets bounce back as -136 favorites at home tonight?
The Dodgers have strung together five consecutive victories over the Pirates dating back to last season and took care of them easily 6-2 last night in the first meeting of the 2019 season. They send out lefty Kershaw for tonight’s match, but the team hasn’t had much success in his recent starts against Pittsburgh going 1-3. Is it worth laying the big -200 price or is backing the visitor who is riding a six game losing streak at +180 the way to go? Our MLB handicapper is going to pass on both options. Read on to get his suggested wager on this game.
As expected, the Indians and Astros played a low-scoring contest on Thursday. The surprise was that the Indians were the ones who came out on top, something they couldn’t do a year ago in the ALDS. With another one of their top pitchers going to the mound on Friday, can the Tribe take another one off the 2017 World Series champions, or will the Astros get back to their winning ways and even this series? Dan gives his Indians/Astros pick!
The Milwaukee Brewers bring a four-game losing streak and a big +170 underdog price tag into New York for the opener of a three-game series with the Mets on Friday night. Can the Brew Crew get out of the funk and start this one off with an unlikely win? Darin Zank gives his assessment and MLB prediction.
The Astros got outside their division for the first time in a week and a half with Minnesota coming in, and they eventually got their bats going with 17 runs in the final two games of the series to boost their record to a healthy 15-9. Cleveland, on the other hand, didn’t find things pleasant on its homestand against the NL East. Can the Indians get the bats going tonight as +140 underdogs? DJ has your MLB pick.
The Mets cruised to an easy win on Tuesday, blitzing the Phillies for a 9-0 victory. New York has now won two straight and has a shot to sweep its rival, which would mark the second time this season that they’ve swept a divisional rival. The Mets are small dogs here at +102. DJ let’s us know if they are barking.
