MLB Hit or Miss August 7th, 2019

2-1 should start becoming my catchphrase.

New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles

Starting Pitching: James Paxton vs John Means

O/U: 9.5

The Yankees just can’t be stopped right now, winning 7 straight games and continuing to expand their lead in the AL East. Much like last night when there destroyed the O’s 9-4, I think the result will be the same tonight. I have the Yankees clobbering the Orioles for their 8th straight win, and I have them covering the -1.5 spread.

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 9.5

Winners: Yankees -260

Milwaukee Brewers @ Pittsburgh Pirates

Starting Pitching: Drew Pomeranz vs Trevor Williams

O/U: 9.5

With the Brewers having Drew Pomeranz on the mound tonight, I have no choice but to go with the Pirates here. Sure that didn’t work out great for me last night, but this is different. This time Pomeranz with his 5.54 ERA is pitching, and I think the Pirates can get to him early. I think the Pirates are gonna get this win tonight, but just in case I feel really good about the +1.5 spread.

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 9.5

Winners: Pirates +115

Philadelphia Phillies @ Arizona Diamondbacks

Starting Pitching: Jason Vargas vs Zac Gallen

O/U: 9.5

Tonight I have to ride with the Phillies when they have Jason Vargas on the mound. Vargas has been decent his last few times out, allowing just 8 earned runs in his last 4 starts. The Diamondbacks haven’t been great at home this year, only going 26-28 so far, so I don’t see them having a great game. I think the value is good here to take the Phillies and I’m expecting Vargas to have a nice performance.

MY PICKS

O/U: Under 9.5

Winners: Phillies +130

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