All the best gamblers have short memories.
Texas Rangers @ New York Yankees
Starting Pitching: Lance Lynn vs Chad Green
I believe anytime you can get the Yankees anywhere under -180, it’s a good get. Getting them at -150 against the inferior Rangers is great value to me. The Yankees are one of the best teams in the MLB and have been atop the league all season long. After last night’s game where the Yankees blew the door off Tex in a 10-1 ending, I don’t think the Rangers have any chance at taking tonight’s game from the Yankees in the Bronx. 10 times out of 10 I am taking the Yankees at these odds, whether it be in the Bronx or in Arlington.
O/U: Over 10.0
Winners: Yankees -150
San Francisco Giants @ St. Louis Cardinals
Starting Pitching: Madison Bumgarner vs Michael Wacha
Madison Bumgarner has been looking like the dominant pitcher we have seen over the past few seasons. He has only allowed 8 runs in his last 32 innings pitcher while striking out 34 batters in that same stretch. Michael Wacha has not been a reliable pitcher at all this season with an ERA of 5.07 and only a 6-6 record in 24 starts. Although the Cardinals clearly have the better lineup, I like Madison Bumgarner tonight to give one of his Cy Young performances. I am taking the Giants as the slight underdog tonight in St. Louis.
O/U: Under 8.0
Winners: Giants +115
San Diego Padres @ Arizona Diamondbacks
Starting Pitching: Chris Paddack vs Zac Gallen
I think the value of this game is too good to pass up. Chris Paddack has not been the same pitcher since the beginning of the season while Zac Gallen has been exceptional. Gallen has a 2.79 ERA and 74 strikeouts through his 61.1 innings of work, impressing everyone in his young career. Arizona also has the much better offense of the two, ranking 8th in runs per game at 5.2 and 7th in hits per game at 9.0. I think this is a very easy pick on the night, even with Paddack on the mound for San Diego. I am taking the Arizona Diamondbacks to win this game at -135.
O/U: Under 8.5
Winners: Diamondbacks -135
Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
