MLB Hit or Miss June 13th, 2019

Extra tip, take Golden State -2.5 tonight. I am sensing a Game 7, baby!

Texas Rangers @ Boston Red Sox

Starting Pitching: Adrian Sampson vs David Price

O/U: 8.5

With David Price on the mound tonight I like the Red Sox to win at home. In his last 18.1 innings pitched Price has only allowed 3 runs and has struck out 18 batters, 10 in his last outing. Boston's offense although not living up to its potential, but they still have been very productive. They have the 7th best BAA in the league with .258 and the 6th best OBP .336. I know they have been a .500 team all season but they still have to star power to make a run at any time. I think they are going to beat the Rangers at home tonight and split this series.

MY PICKS

O/U: Under 8.5

Winners: Red Sox -250

Los Angeles Angels @ Tampa Bay Rays

Starting Pitching: Tyler Skaags v Ryan Yarbrough

O/U: 9.0

This is more of a gut pick because there are not many stats I can give you saying why the Angels will win tonight. They do have the 7th best BAA in the league at .258 and the 5th best OBP at .338. However outside of the those stats the Rays are better in every category. Tampa does have Yarbrough on the mound tonight and he is posting a 5.31 ERA so far this season. Los ANgeles has a very dangerous lineup and I think Trout and company will be able to take advantage of a good matchup. I am taking the Angels to take down the Rays in Tampa.  

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 9.0

Winners: Angels +130

New York Yankees @ Chicago White Sox

Starting Pitching: J.A Happ vs Ivan Nova

O/U: 9.5

The Yankees have been incredible this season. They are probably the biggest shock of the season with all the injuries they’ve had to overcome. Their offense is top 10 in all major categories. 7th BAA, 9th OBP, 8th SLG, 7th OPS and 6th in home runs hit. They are without a doubt the better team and they have a good matchup tonight facing Ivan Nova. Nova has a 6.28 ERA and a WHIP of 1.62. This Yankees offense should be able to have a field day against Nova and should pick up the win. I am predicting another murder on the south side of Chicago and the Yankees are gonna win big.

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 9.5

Winners: Yankees -185

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