Tonight we get ourselves back over .500 on the week.
Arizona Diamondbacks @ New York Mets
Starting Pitching: Robbie Ray vs Steven Matz
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.
O/U: Over 8.5
Winners: Mets -125
Atlanta Braves @ Philadelphia Phillies
Starting Pitching: Dallas Keuchel vs Zach Eflin
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.
O/U: Under 9.5
Winners: Braves -125
Oakland Athletics @ Houston Astros
Starting Pitching: Brett Anderson vs Jose Urquidy
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.
O/U: Over 11.5
Winners: Astros -160
