The Yankees and the Red Sox open a mini two game set at London Stadium this weekend. Boston will send out Rick Porcello who was rocked for five runs in 4 2/3 innings last time he faced the Yanks and NY counters with Masahiro Tanaka who has looked especially sharp in his last two. Can the “Boys from the Bronx” continue their winnings ways across the pond? Get Zank’s statistical breakdown plus free pick.
The Rockies ended the Dodgers win streak in this series at 12 games with their 13-9 win last night. Tonight they send out right-hander Jon Gray who has been pitching well but he doesn’t have good numbers against this Dodgers’ lineup. Will LAD start another streak tonight? Get Dan’s insight and free MLB pick to bet on.
The Mets have lost five straight games and the pitching staff allowed five or more runs in all five losses that started with a blown save of a good deGrom pitching performance. DeGrom is back again to right the ship but can he? Get MLB handicapper Dan Jamison’s prediction.
The Dodgers have won 12 straight against the Rockies and send out Hyun-Jin Ryu who has been brilliant this season with a 1.27 ERA. Read on to see what MLB handicapper Darin Zank’s numbers tell him should be your bet tonight.
LA is 6-0 against Colorado this season, heading into the opener of this four-game NL West series Thursday night in Denver. And pitcher Walker Buehler just whiffed 16 Rockies his last time out. Should bettors expect these themes of dominance to continue tonight? Darin has your MLB prediction.
It’s not at all unusual for a pitcher to be better in their own park than they are on the road, but it is unusual when that park is Citizens Bank Park. It’s not exactly pitcher-friendly. A better term might be hitter-inviting, given those short porches where flowers absorb home runs during the summer. Can Pivetta continue to prosper at home vs. the Mets while his park ‘invites’ his teammates to score? Sportsbooks seem to think so making NY underdogs here. DJ tells us what he thinks with today’s MLB pick!
The Yankees likely haven’t named a starting pitcher, and therefore bookmakers are holding their odds, because they will use their opener strategy again. NY seems to have decided that it doesn’t have 5 starting pitchers, so it’s going to go with a four-man rotation but give each pitcher a full four days of rest by going with the opener strategy once every five days. In the last usage, it worked out nicely for the Yankees. Do they have enough to do the same against the Blue Jays? Darin has your MLB free pick!
