We give St. Louis our handicapping check-marks in the pitching match-up, the splits with the sticks, and the bullpen comparison. So we like the Cardinals here. We also like taking chances. So in knowing the visitors will bat nine times, we'll chase the better price and play St. Louis against the run line.
For me, the lack of intimidation on the part of the Astros is enormous in this spot. Houston is also playing very good baseball at the moment and is likely to keep that rolling after besting the Yankees in the Bronx and sweeping the Mets in Queens. This is a chance to really gain momentum and confidence for Houston, and I think they can do exactly that. I'll back the Astros.
We give Wright the edge in the pitching match-up and Atlanta owns the advantage in the splits with the sticks. Also, Philadelphia will miss Harper more than the Braves miss Acuna. And Atlanta owns the better bullpen even without Jansen. We’re betting the Braves Wednesday night.
We give Wacha the edge in the pitching match-up, and Boston owns the edge in the bullpen comparison. Meanwhile, we'll call the splits with the sticks a wash. From there, the Red Sox are one of the hottest teams in baseball over the last month or so, and they're getting an underdog price. We like the betting value with Boston for Tuesday night.
We give Gray an edge in the pitching match-up and while Cleveland owns an edge in the bullpen comparison Minnesota owns an edge with the sticks. Also, following a great six-week run it looks like the Guardians are coming back to Earth a bit. So we like the Twins Monday night at a reasonable price.
Heading into Sunday's heavyweight matchup between Los Angeles and Atlanta, look for the Dodgers to bounce back and pick up the win. Los Angeles has now won 5 straight games in which Tony Gonsolin has taken the mound. I like the Dodgers on the moneyline
Fried gets our handicapping check-mark in the pitching match-up, but we wash the splits with the sticks and the bullpen comparison. So when we add it up Atlanta's advantage does not warrant a price of -160. We like the baseball betting value here, with Los Angeles getting the underdog price.
Verlander got touched up a bit his last time out; we expect a rebound performance Friday night. Also, it's not often you can get a guy like JV and perhaps the best bullpen in baseball at an underdog price. The Yankees may be the best team in Baseball, but we like the betting value with Houston Friday night.
We give Cueto a slight edge in the pitching match-up, but Baltimore owns the edge in the bullpen comparison. And when we call the splits with the sticks a wash, we see that the line on this game is inflated toward Chicago. The Orioles are actually plus about five betting units on the season money chart because they're cashing in as underdogs on a reasonably regular basis. And that's what we like here. We're betting Baltimore Thursday night, catching the underdog price.
Heading into Wednesday's interleague matchup between Washington and Baltimore, the Orioles are the slight favorites on the moneyline. Look for Baltimore to pick up the win, led by another strong outing from Tyler Wells. On the season, Wells has a WHIP of just 1.07. I like Baltimore on the moneyline.
We give Atlanta our baseball handicapping check-marks in both the pitching match-up and the bullpen comparison while calling the splits with the sticks a push. Plus, the Braves are just hot right now, winning games with offensive outbursts or 2-1 with runs in the bottom of the ninth. That price is a bit high for our taste, but we're betting Atlanta anyway Tuesday night.
Burnes gets our check-mark in the pitching match-up thanks to the much better past performance against tonight's opponents. From there, we give St. Louis a slight edge with the sticks while calling the bullpen comparison a wash. So when we add it up, Milwaukee's advantages do not warrant so high a price. Betting baseball is often about betting value on the dime line, and we like the value with the Cardinals getting that underdog price.
We're calling this pitching match-up a wash, and while Toronto owns an edge in the splits with the sticks, New York owns the edge in the bullpen comparison, even without Chapman. So the line on this game looks about right. But Crash Davis told us to never mess with a streak, and the Yankees are streaking, winning games in which they score 18 runs or even just two. So we're betting on New York to make it eight in a row Friday night.
Heading into Wednesday night's matchup between the Angels and Dodgers, look for the Dodgers to pick up another win over. The Dodgers have now won 5 straight games in which Tyler Anderson has taken the mound. Look for Anderson to bounce back from a disappointing outing vs the White Sox by shutting down the Angels. I like the Dodgers on the runline.
Cole is the obvious choice in the pitching match-up here but he ain't exactly been great as of late against Tampa Bay. From there, New York gets the checkmark with the sticks, but the bullpens are about a wash. All of which means we believe the line on this game is way too high. Betting baseball is all about finding value on those dime lines, and we like the value here with the Rays getting that huge underdog price.
