We’re gonna keep our winning record this week.
Houston Astros @ New York Yankees
Starting Pitching: Framber Valdez vs Chad Green
Every time I see a starting pitcher with an ERA over 6 I am picking against them. Chad Green currently has an ERA of 7.54 and a 1-2 record with the Yankees. Against a great offense like the Astros there is no way I can pick the Yankees tonight. The Astros are the best offense in the league and will have a field day against Green. Houston is 4th in BAA, 2nd in OBP and SLG. I don't see how the Yankees are favored tonight and I see this as free money. Take the Astros with confidence in New York.
O/U: Over 10.0
Winners: Astros +110
Minnesota Twins @ Kansas City Royals
Starting Pitching: Jake Odorizzi vs Glenn Sparkmann
Jake Odorizzi has been one of the best Pitchers in the league all season. Jake has a 10-2 record to along with a 2.24 ERA. Meanwhile half of the Royals team doesn't even seem like they know how to swing a bat. Kansas City has only hit 75 home runs in the 74 games they played this season. They are also ranked 25th in runs average per game at 4.2 while the Twins rank 1st at 5.8. I think the Twins also have a bad taste in their mouth after losing the last series to the Red Sox. They will beat down Kansas City tonight.
O/U: Under 9.5
Winners: Twins -195
Tampa Bay Rays @ Oakland Athletics
Starting Pitching: Charlie Morton vs Frankie Montas
After announcing earlier today that the Ray's might be pulling double duty in both Tampa and MONTREAL! The Ray's take on the Athletics in Oakland. With the Rays having Charlie Morton on the mound I am fully on board with Tampa. Morton has an 8-1 record with a 2.37 ERA and has also struckout 107 batters in 87.1 innings pitched. Tampa Bay has also lost their last 3 games and this is usually when a streak like that comes to an end. Getting one of your aces on the mound and taking care of work early. I am taking the Ray's to beat the As in Oakland baby.
O/U: Over 7.5
Winners: Rays EVEN
Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
