MLB Hit or Miss April 15th, 2019

8-1 picking winners so far this season, let keep this going.

New York Mets @ Philadelphia Phillies

Starting Pitching: Noah Syndergaard vs Aaron Nola

O/U: 7.5

Two of the league's hottest teams will be battling it out in Philly. Both teams have their best pitcher on the mound. It should be a real pitching battle, making the under very desirable. The Mets have been on of the best offensive teams so far, averaging 6.1 runs per game which ranks 3rd in the MLB. They put a lot of pressure on opposing pitchers, ranking  5th in hits with a very impressive 9.5 per game. When the Mets offense is clicking, this team is scary. Whenever Syndergaard is on the mound, I like the Met’s chances to win. Take the Mets to win and the under.

MY PICKS

O/U: Under 7.5

Winner: Mets -106

Los Angeles Angels @ Texas Rangers

Starting Pitching: Trevor Cahill vs Shelby Miller

O/U: 10.5

The Angels pitching has been the main reason this team has been racking up wins. As a team they allow only 3.8 runs per game, which is ranked 8th in the league. Against a team like the Rangers, who are very middle of the pack offensively, good defense will be very important. LA also has superstar Mike Trout back in the lineup, but not in the field. Trout will be playing DH tonight, but that should be enough to make the Rangers over think some situations. I like the Angels to win and the Over in tonight's game.  

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 10.5

Winner: Angels -130

Cincinnati Reds @ Los Angeles Dodgers

Starting Pitching: Luis Castillo vs Clayton Kershaw

O/U: 7.5

Until I look foolish, I will never bet against the Dodgers when Clayton Kershaw is on the mound. Sure he is not the same pitcher he was just 2 years ago; but he still has games where he is unhittable. This is his season debut, so we don’t know what he will look like. But like I said: never bet against Kershaw. The Dodgers average the second most runs per game with 6.4 so he will have his offense behind him. Take the defending National League Champs and the Under in a low scoring game.

MY PICKS

O/U: Under 7.5

Winner: Dodgers -165

Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
