|09-02-19||Astros v. Brewers +173||3-2||Loss||-100||13 h 15 m||Show|

Grab LA in the night cap spot.
|08-27-19||Cardinals v. Brewers -140||6-3||Loss||-140||20 h 3 m||Show|
Monday one of the worst line moves of the day happened between the Brewers and Cardinals. An extra day of rest for the Brewers from Thursday boosted the line.

|08-27-19||Indians v. Tigers +126||10-1||Loss||-100||20 h 33 m||Show|
The season for the Indians started with key injuries and once again the Indians are struggling in that department.

|08-26-19||Cardinals +120 v. Brewers||12-2||Win||120||14 h 26 m||Show|
Momentum for the Milwaukee Brewers on a three game road win streak came to a halt Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Monday they’ll return home to face a St Louis Cardinals team they just met last week. In that outing Gio Gonzalez inability to last beyond five innings hurt the Brewers pen.

Grab the Yankees
|08-24-19||Giants v. A's -136||10-5||Loss||-136||14 h 13 m||Show|
The Oakland As have taken advantage of their home stand having won six of seven against top teams in the Yankees and Astros. Saturday they’re getting a reduced price offering based on the short trek of the San Francisco Giants to Oakland. Another variable is that Madison Bumgarner has the benefit of having pitched and won against the As on August 13th. Because of the short two-game series Chris Bassitt did not pitch. Ride the As here as Bumgarner has shown to be a predictable streaky pitcher. Look for a follow up poor outing off his first loss in two months his prior start.
|08-22-19||Rangers v. White Sox UNDER 10.5||1-6||Win||100||6 h 30 m||Show|
Thursday value can be had on the under between the Rangers and White Sox. Rangers have struggled all season on the road. In fact only the Royals, Orioles, and Tigers have worst road records in the American League this season. Run production dips for the Rangers on the road as was evident in their last road trip. Rangers pitcher Ariel Jurado has had consecutive outings of allowing high runs in short innings of duty. Expect him to settle in a bit better tonight and for the under to hit here.
|08-21-19||Yankees v. A's -110||4-6||Win||100||22 h 44 m||Show|
Wednesday the Oakland As will look to take advantage of the Yankees as they did on Tuesday. Holding the Yankees in check at the plate is a tough task to accomplish in consecutive nights. Mike Fiers of the As will hope to uphold the challenge as he has the stout winning record on the season at 11-3. Expect Fiers to do enough as the As put pressure on the Yankees JA Happ early and often. Grab the As Wednesday night.
|08-19-19||Angels -110 v. Rangers||7-8||Loss||-110||6 h 3 m||Show|
Monday the Angels will attempt to have success on the road against the Rangers as they did in early July. In that series they won two of three and were sparked with games of nine and six runs. High runs may not be on the agenda for Monday as they’ll be facing Kolby Allard for the first time. As great as the Rangers have been at home they’ve shown to be susceptible to teams within their division. Grab the Angels
|08-19-19||Royals v. Orioles -129||5-4||Loss||-129||5 h 2 m||Show|
The Baltimore Orioles are coming off a heart breaking loss Sunday against the Boston Red Sox. Up 6-0 the Orioles unraveled in a fashion that has been seen countless times during a horrible season. Factored into Monday’s price is the Orioles having lost seven straight games and twelve of their last thirteen. Pitcher John Means has also not lasted into the fourth inning in three straight starts. Yet look for this Orioles team to show some pride after yesterday’s meltdown and get the win. Grab Baltimore.
|08-19-19||Nationals v. Pirates +110||13-0||Loss||-100||5 h 2 m||Show|
Monday, the Washington Nationals head into Pittsburgh having won six of their last seven games. In their last two games against the Milwaukee Brewers they scored a whopping thirty runs.

Grab Pittsburgh
|08-18-19||Cubs -148 v. Pirates||7-1||Win||100||24 h 8 m||Show|
The Cubs averted another potential loss Saturday thanks to starting pitcher Jon Lester getting out of several jams. Their road woes and injuries to their bullpen have made them a cheaper road favorite Sunday. Coupled with their bats struggling this may be a trendy spot to secure the underdog. Instead look for the Cubs to battle as they did Saturday and get another strong performance from Jose Quintana.
|08-18-19||Giants v. Diamondbacks +111||1-6||Win||111||21 h 7 m||Show|
One of the early afternoon games that figure to be one of the leaders for action bets Sunday is the Diamondbacks and Giants. For the Giants things could not be better from their ace Madison Bumgarner. Over his last ten starts he has allowed three runs or less in eight. That’s a value indicator for a current betting market Sunday opposed to Merrill Kelly’s recent stretch of allowing eight home runs his last four starts. The Diamondbacks have shown how quickly a team can fade when being sellers at the deadline, yet this is a worthy priced home underdog spot. Grab Arizona.
|08-18-19||Brewers +101 v. Nationals||8-16||Loss||-100||19 h 33 m||Show|
The Washington Nationals momentum has featured a string of wins. Sunday they’ll aim to get the upper hand by leaning on their dominant home edge. In order to get the victory Sunday the Brewers will need to rely on starting pitcher Chase Anderson. Anderson has struggled with lasting beyond five innings which has been a burden for the Brewers bullpen. In his last start Josh Hader gave up a three-run bomb to cost the Brewers late against the Rangers. This go around expect the Brewers bats to get the job done earlier than anticipated as Eric Fedde will not pitch three straight gems. Grab Milwaukee.
|08-17-19||Twins v. Rangers UNDER 11||12-7||Loss||-100||24 h 44 m||Show|
The highest total Saturday outside of Coors Field comes between the Rangers and Twins. Minnesota has been one of the best teams post All-Star break to capture overs on totals for. That’s been due to a bullpen that’s been highly susceptible and being third in MLB for run production. Add in the fact that both Jose Berrios and Ariel Jurado have been shaky and the recipe for another over is in line. Berrios gave up a season high nine runs two starts ago and Jurado is coming off a 3.1 inning performance in which he gave up eight runs. A high total as such you can get away with one explosive half inning and still prevail. Grab the under here.
|08-15-19||White Sox v. Angels OVER 9||7-8||Win||100||23 h 20 m||Show|
One of Thursday’s Night Cap games comes between the White Sox and Angels. Chicago is coming off a series against the Astros in which they won two of three. In fact Tuesday they played a double header because of Monday’s rain delay. Factor in travel and Reynaldo Lopez’s six game streak of allowing three runs or less and value seems to be on the under. That is one of the reasons the line moved down immediately on the total. Yet look for both teams to hit well and for this total to hit over
|08-14-19||Cubs v. Phillies -113||1-11||Win||100||19 h 10 m||Show|
Easing back into starter duties has been Cubs pitcher Cole Hamels. In two starts since returning from the injured list Hamels has pitched short outings of less than five innings. Both games the Cubs won by leaning on their bullpen arms. Wednesday expect Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola to bounce back from his last start and the Phillies to pick up their second win of the series.
|08-14-19||Diamondbacks v. Rockies +131||6-7||Win||131||15 h 16 m||Show|
The Colorado Rockies slide has featured losses in seven of their last eight games. Arizona’s destroyed the Rockies pitching with key explosive innings. Monday they scored four runs in the sixth, and Tuesday they began the game with five runs in the first inning. The hot hitting of the Diamondbacks features to be a tricky spot for Rockies starter Kyle Freeland. On May 30th also in an early time slot Freeland lasted just three innings while giving up five runs against the Diamondbacks. Yet look for the Rockies to sidestep their pitching issues and cash as small home dogs.
|08-13-19||Mets v. Braves -123||3-5||Win||100||18 h 55 m||Show|
The New York Mets and Atlanta Braves will meet twice in the next ten days. Tuesday’s series will be played in Atlanta as the New York Mets try and attempt to continue their hot streak. If it’s going to continue the Mets will need high run support. In ten games against the Mets this year the Braves have averaged six runs a game. That includes a June 6th start by Zack Wheeler in which the Braves scored a total of twelve runs. Grab the cheap home favored price here on the Braves.
|08-12-19||Rays +120 v. Padres||10-4||Win||120||9 h 58 m||Show|
An unfamiliar spot lies for the Tampa Bay Rays Monday. They will turn to Diego Castillo to pitch their first inning tonight on the road in San Diego. The inning may not fare well for Castillo as the Padres averaged 6.75 runs over four games in their last series against the Rockies. Yet this Rays team just continues to deliver in road environments with an MLB best 38-22 record. They’re a value underdog based on extended road travel that began up the Pacific coast in Seattle. Play Tampa Bay.
|08-12-19||Diamondbacks v. Rockies -108||8-6||Loss||-108||7 h 28 m||Show|
The Diamondbacks head to Colorado which may help revitalize their bats. Two straight losses to the Dodgers featured just three runs. Prior the Diamondbacks had won five of six games by averaging seven runs a game. As poor as Rockies pitcher Peter Lambert has been the Rockies should be in a favorable spot against an taxed Diamondbacks bullpen.
|08-12-19||Red Sox v. Indians OVER 10.5||5-6||Win||100||6 h 57 m||Show|
Monday’s starting pitchers between the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox features the best wins to loss ratio of the slate. Don’t expect that to translate to a low-scoring game. Oddsmakers extended this total above double-digits in what should be a slugfest in Cleveland. The Indians lineup will be the latest to hit the Red Sox hard, and do not expect Indians starter Zach Plesac to uphold his season ERA. Grab the over.
|08-12-19||Reds v. Nationals +101||6-7||Win||101||6 h 53 m||Show|
The Nationals finally got a victory over the Mets to conclude their weekend series Sunday. Monday, they return home after a lengthy nine-game road trip that featured stops out West against Arizona and San Francisco. On the mound for the Nationals Monday will be erratic pitcher Eric Fedde.

|08-11-19||Diamondbacks v. Dodgers -205||3-9||Win||100||4 h 39 m||Show|
A steep price increase is the norm when it comes to the LA Dodgers. That’s even higher when potential Cy Young candidate Hyun Jin Ryu is on the mound. He’ll face a Diamondbacks team Sunday in which he has allowed just one run in thirteen innings of work this season. Expect the Dodgers to fare well against Diamondbacks pitcher Mike Leake who has been hit hard in three straight starts. Lay the price here on the Dodgers.
|08-10-19||Diamondbacks v. Dodgers -180||0-4||Win||100||23 h 51 m||Show|
Saturday expect the LA Dodgers winning ways at home to continue to flourish. On the year they’ve dominated the series matchup against the Diamondbacks with double the series wins on the year.

|08-10-19||Pirates v. Cardinals OVER 9||1-3||Loss||-100||21 h 56 m||Show|
The long slump of the St. Louis Cardinals at the plate has been factored into Saturday’s total. Over their last eleven games they’ve averaged just two runs each. With the Pirates on a long losing stretch and familiarity of each other low runs is a possibility. Yet Joe Musgrove has been far too erratic including allowing four runs against the Cardinals on July 15th and five on July 25th. Grab the over as both teams succeed at the plate.
|08-07-19||White Sox v. Tigers +100||8-1||Loss||-100||14 h 6 m||Show|
The worst team in MLB finds themselves getting value from the oddsmakers in Wednesday’s early matchup against the White Sox. The White Sox Ivan Nova has allowed an earned run or less in three straight starts, including a complete game against the Marlins. Those great efforts have not changed the fact that his ERA is still above five. He also struggled in his lone start against the Tigers this year in which he gave up six runs on eleven hits. Take the home team Tigers in this one.
|08-06-19||Angels +133 v. Reds||4-8||Loss||-100||20 h 21 m||Show|
Losers of five straight the LA Angels will need offense to get of their rut. Poor pitching has resulted in the opponent averaging over seven runs a game during the Angels current losing streak. Run support has also been lacking but look for that to change Tuesday. Reds pitcher Anthony DesClafani has struggled to pitch beyond five innings as of late. Grab the value on the Angels ending their losing streak.
|08-05-19||Rangers v. Indians UNDER 9.5||1-0||Win||101||6 h 43 m||Show|

They’ve went 12-4 over the last two weeks and will hope to keep their success going tonight in Seattle. This will already be the fifth series matchup on the year between the Mariners and As.

The focus on Sunday night baseball likely will be figuring out if the Mets can snap their seven-game losing streak and if Atlanta stays hot. I’ll avoid that angle but instead focus on the total.
