Just two more days until our independence, let’s celebrate.
New York Yankees @ New York Mets
Starting Pitching: James Paxton vs Zack Wheeler
The Yankees have been on fire this entire season. They won 14 of their last 15 games and just scored 29 runs their last 2. The Mets on the other hand have been, well, the Mets. Losing 7 of their last 10 and have looked like the dysfunctional organization they are. Honestly I am shocked the Yankees are only at -140. The way the Bombers have been playing I would have guessed -220. For the exact reason is why they made the list today. They have the best value even being favorites and I think everyone should hop on this game now. Take the Yankees to win and cover the -1.5 spread.
O/U: Over 9.0
Winners: Yankees -140
Miami Marlins @ Washington Nationals
Starting Pitching: Zac Gallen vs Patrick Corbin
The nationals have been on a bit of a hot streak the past couple of weeks winnings 7 of their last 10 games. Patrick Corbin will be getting the start tonight and he has been one of my favorite pitchers to watch this season. I have a soft spot for guys who strike out a ton of people and he has done just that. 111 Ks in just 99.1 innings is very impressive. Plus he has only allowed 2 runs in his last 14 innings pitched while striking out 17 batters. Last time he faced off against the Marlins he went 7 innings allowing 1 earned run and 9 Ks. I like the Nationals to beat the Marlins tonight behind the arm of Patrick corbin.
O/U: Over 9.0
Winners: Nationals -220
Minnesota Twins @ Oakland Athletics
Starting Pitching: Jake Odorizzi vs Daniel Mengden
I think anytime you can get the Twins as an underdog when Ororizzi is on the mound you need to put some money down on them. Jake has a 2.73 ERA through his 85.2 innings pitched and struck out 94 batters. Then we need to remember the Twins have one of the best offenses in baseball. 1st in BAA, SLG, OPS and home runs hit they should blow the doors off the A’S. There really isn’t much more I can tell you, this is one you just need to trust me on.
O/U: Under 9.5
Winners: Twins EVEN
Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
