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.
The Indians destroy lefties which doesn’t bode well for the White Sox with a struggling Hector Santiago on the mound. Cleveland starter Clevinger has been doing his part all season and comes into this off five consecutive quality starts. The problem here is the number. Is there ever any value in laying -270?
It’s risky business any time you bet the Nationals with that awful bullpen. No lead is ever completely safe and Washington starter Patrick Corbin hasn’t gone past six innings in his last four outings. Read on to get Zank’s complete take on the game and free pick.
The final game on the Sunday MLB card has the Indians hosting the Phillies at Progressive Field in Cleveland. The MLB betting board has the Indians as -140 favorite on the money line with the total offered up at 10.5 runs.
