These two squads played seven games this season with the Athletics holding the edge in wins 4-3. Tampa Bay starter Morton pitched extremely well in two starts versus Oakland throwing 13 1/3 frames allowing just one run. A’s starter Manaea didn’t face TB this season but he’s been excellent allowing two or fewer runs in all five starts this campaign. It sure looks like an UNDER play should be considered.
The Brew Crew took four of the six meeting this season including Woodruff’s lone start against the Nats. Scherzer pitched well in his only start versus Milwaukee allowing one earned run in six frames pitched in a ND before the Washington came up short. Are the Brewers worth a play at nice odds?
Only two games mean anything on this final day of MLB’s regular season, and one of them takes place in St. Louis, where the Cardinals will try to secure a division title against the rival Cubs.
The Cubs put an end to a nine-game free fall with their victory last night over the Cards. They send out the Cole Hamels who has struggled with a shoulder injury as of late that has seen pitch past the 5th inning just once in his past five starts. Get Dan’s analysis and moneyline pick.
Dallas Keuchel has owned the Mets in two career starts with both coming this season. The Braves lefty picked up a win and a no decision, allowing zero runs in 13 innings pitched. The Mets Stroman has been solid in recent outings allowing just three runs in 18 innings over three games. Tough call from this vantage point, but our handicapper has a couple angles he’s banking on.
On paper the Astros have a big edge in the probable starters tonight with Wade Miley toeing the rubber for Houston based on his seasonal and Jose Barria getting the ball for the Angels. The biggest question mark is does either team care whether they win this game? Get Dan’ opinion and moneyline play.
The Rays took the opener 2-1 for their fifth win in their last six games. It was also the sixth win over the past seven in this series by the home team. Tampa Bay goes with the hot Charlie Morton for this game who has posted three consecutive quality starts. Jonathan Loaisiga gets the ball for the Yankees who have lost his last four starts. Get our cappers play.
