MLB Hit or Miss September 11th, 2019

Tonight we get ourselves back over .500 on the week.

Arizona Diamondbacks @ New York Mets 

Starting Pitching: Robbie Ray vs Steven Matz 

O/U: 8.5 

ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME! I am riding with the Mets for the third day in a row because the Diamondbacks just can't beat them. At 3.0 GB, the Mets still have a shot for the Wild Card and I think they are getting it. They have that one-game-at-a-time mentality right now and they can't seem to lose because of it. Steven Matz still has the ability to throw an unbelievable game like he’s shown recently, and I think he will do it tonight. He hasn't allowed more than 2 earned runs since August 2nd and has the favorable matchup against a cold Diamondbacks offense. Gimme the Mets to win yet again tonight in Queens. 

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 8.5

Winners: Mets -125

Atlanta Braves @ Philadelphia Phillies 

Starting Pitching: Dallas Keuchel vs Zach Eflin

O/U: 9.5

Braves pitcher Dallas Keuchel has been fantastic in his last few starts. He has only allowed 3 earned runs in his last 33.0 innings pitched and hasn't lost a decision since August 3rd. Not to mention, Atlanta has also been on fire over the past few weeks, going 8-2 in their last 10 games to take a strong hold of the NL East. On a personal note, I think the Braves would love to keep their division rival Phillies out of the playoffs, and a win tonight would help greatly. But it really comes down to Keuchel pitching out of his mind, and I believe he will do it again tonight. Gimme the Braves in Philly and give me the -1.5 spread.  

MY PICKS

O/U: Under 9.5

Winners: Braves -125

Oakland Athletics @ Houston Astros 

Starting Pitching: Brett Anderson vs Jose Urquidy

O/U: 11.5

If you do one thing for this game tonight, TAKE THE OVER! The Astros scored 15 (FIFTEEN) runs two nights ago and the Athletics scored 21 (TWENTY-ONE) runs last night. These two teams are bashing the ball right now, so I think the over is almost a lock. But also I am taking the Astros tonight because they are the best baseball team on the planet. They have won 7 of their last 10 games and I don't see them dropping this series to the A's. Gimme the Astros to win and cover the -1.5 spread. 

MY PICKS

O/U: Over 11.5

Winners: Astros -160
