MLB Hit or Miss July 16th, 2019

3-0 last night, it's time to get a little risky. 

New York Mets @ Minnesota Twins 

Starting Pitching: Steve Matz vs Michael Pineda 

O/U: 10.5

The Twins have not looked like the team we saw at the beginning of the season. They have been very mediocre the past few weeks, only going 5-5 in their last 10 games. However the numbers are on their side tonight against the Mets. Minnesota is 25-8 coming off a loss this season and 28-15 at home. The twins still have the better team as the Mets still don’t know who they are outside of Pete Alonso and Jeff McNiel. I think this is going to be a nice bounce back for the Twins as they take game 2 of the series from the Mets. 

MY PICKS

O/U: Under 10.5

Winners: Twins -170

San Diego Padres @ Miami Marlins 

Starting Pitching: Logan Allen vs Jordan Yamamoto

O/U: 8.0

Jordan Yamamoto is the only pitcher on the planet right now that will get me to put money on the Marlins. 3 of his 5 starts this season he has held the opposing team scoreless, and that is with a very lackluster 2:1 K:BB ratio. With the Padres also having on of the worst offenses next to the Marlins, the pitching matchup is the pure reason I am going with Miami. Logan Allen can have a good night but Yamamoto will out on a show. Marlins over the Padres tonight. 

MY PICKS

O/U: Under 8.0

Winners: Marlins +105

Seattle Mariners @ Oakland Athletics 

Starting Pitching: Marco Gonzales vs Daniel Mengden 

O/U: 9.5

This is a gut pick at it’s finest. The Mariners and Athletics have been on opposite streaks as of late with Oakland going 8-2 in their last 10 and Seattle going 2-8. I just think if the Mariners are going to steal a game from the A's it's going to be against Daniel Mengden. He has a 4.73 ERA and has allowed 41 hits in just 40 innings. I think the Mariners can get enough runs to take this game and that's why I am picking them in an upset. 

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 9.5

Winners: Mariners +140

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