MLB Hit or Miss August 14th, 2019

5-1 this week so far, we are looking good ladies and gents. 

Los Angeles Dodgers @ Miami Marlins 

Starting Pitching: Clayton Kershaw vs Elieser Hernandez 

O/U: 8.0

Well this one is without a doubt my lock of the night. The Miami Marlins facing off against Clayton Kershaw is just unfair at this point. Kershaw is still holding a 2.77 ERA, which is top 5 in the NL, and he hasn't allowed more than 2 runs in a game since July 5th. The Dodgers should be able to win tonight, and I’m even going with the -1.5 spread as well. 

MY PICKS 

O/U: Under 8.0

Winners: Dodgers -315

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Los Angeles Angels

Starting Pitching: Chris Archer vs Dillon Peters 

O/U: 10.0

Both teams have been on cold streaks over the past few weeks, both going 2-8 in their last 10 games. However, tonight I have to go with the better team and pick the Angels. Pirates pitcher Chris Archer has not been the pitcher we have seen in the past, and I don't trust him at all against a lineup with King Albert, Ohtani, and Mike Trout. I have a good feeling that Trout may even hit a home run tonight. I am riding with the Angels to pull off the win tonight. 

MY PICKS 

O/U: Under 10.0

Winners: Angels -130

St. Louis Cardinals @ Kansas City Royals

Starting Pitching: Dakota Hudson vs Brad Keller 

O/U: 9.5

The Cardinals are on a hot streak right now and I don't think the Royals are the ones to stop them. St. Louis has won 4 straight games while only allowing 2 runs or fewer in 3 of them. The Royals have been one of the worst teams all season, and I don't see any hope for them tonight, even in their home stadium. The Cardinals are the better team and I think they will take this game tonight. 

MY PICKS 

O/U: Over 9.5

Winners: Cardinals -130

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