Stroman takes the mound for Toronto with an 0-2 record pitching 18.2 total innings and allowing 17 hits and 5 runs. That could be because the Jays are one of the worst hitting teams batting .202, In his last 2 starts he allowed 15 hits and 5 runs in 11.2 innings.Tampa Bay has knocked him around hitting .351 off him and he was 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA in 2 starts against them last year. Tampa is hitting 4th in the league and is in 1st place with an 11-4 record. The price seems cheap enough to go with the hot team.Take Tampa Bay

Hernandez takes the mound for Seattle with a 1-0 record but came out of his last start because of a stomach flu. He is 1-0 at home with a 1.69 ERA. Seattle is 13-3 wit a 5-2 home record. I can't pass on the price with the home team playing so well. Take Seattle

PHILLIES @ MARLINS Arrieta pitches for Philadelphia with a 1-1 record and a 2.77 ERA. He lost his last game when he allowed 3 runs and 5 hits with 2 HR's in 7 innings.

He was 11-5 in his rookie season last year and had a 1-0 record against Toronto as he allowed 4 runs and 7 hits in 6.1 innings. This is a good spot to steal a win against a slumping Cleveland team with a 2nd year pitcher considering the price. Take TOR.

Fried takes the mound for Atlanta allowing 0 runs in 2 relief appearances. He is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA lifetime against them while the Braves have won 2 straight. This isn't a good spot for Darvish to pick up a win and the home team should have the advantage in this game.

NATS @ METS
Washington sends Strasburg out to pitch against the Mets for the 2nd time this season. He allowed 4 runs and 7 hits in a no decision the 1st game in Washington as NY scored early in an 11-8 win. He was 0-1 with a 6.00 against NY last season and NY is hitting a hard .266 off him. Syndergaard takes the mound for NY after a bit of a shaky 1st game against these Nats allowing 4 runs in 6 innings. Last season he was 8-1 at home with a 2.87 ERA and a 3.00 ERA against Washington. NY has jumped out going 5-1 in their first 6 games while Washington is 2-3. The home team at this price looks too good to pass up.

Taillon takes the mound for Pittsburgh after taking a 5-3 loss but 4 of the runs came in the 7th inning as he allowed just 1 run through the first 6. He was 2-0 with a 2.11 ERA against the Cards last year and should do well at his home park.

PHILLIES @ NATS
The Nats are off to a bit of a rough start, and their ace Max Scherzer was on the wrong side of a 2-0 loss on Opening Day. You certainly can't pin the blame on Scherzer, who tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings, striking out 12 and allowing just two runs on two hits. He'll get a crack at the Phillies tonight, and he's 5-1 with a 2.85 ERA in his last 11 starts versus Philly. Zack Eflin goes for Philly, and the Phillies are 0-6 in Eflin's last six road starts. The Phillies are 8-18 in the last 26 meetings in Washington.

Price will try to repeat his fine performance in Boston as he pitches in Game 5. He has pitched 19 innings in the post season allowing 9 runs and 10 walks. His ERA over that stretch is 4.26 which is higher than his regular season ERA. Over his last 6 starts covering 28.2 innings he has allowed 16 runs and 25 hits and now faces the Dodgers in LA. Kershaw takes the mound for LA and he was hit hard in the opening game by Boston. He pitches at home now with everything on the line for LA, They lose and its over. He has pitched much better in LA as he allowed just 1 run and 5 hits in 15 innings of postseason play at home. The Dodgers need this game and Kershaw at home is their answer.

RED SOX @ DODGERS
Porcello pitches for Boston in the 1st game in the Series to be played in LA. He has allowed 12 hits and 5 runs in 10.2 innings in the postseasom and all 5 runs allowed were on the road. Boston has won 6 straight games and 8 of their last 10 overall with both losses against righties and 4 wins against lefties. The Dodgers send Buehler to the mound and he responded with 1 run ball over 4.2 innings after losing his first 2 postseason starts, He has pitched really well in LA as he didn't allow more than 1 run at home in his last 5 starts of the regular season. This is a must win for LA and I look for them to get their 1st win on their home diamond.

Tonight Ryu pitches for LA and after last night's 8-4 loss, Boston has continued to hit and keep the momentum through the postseason. He has had a great season for LA. He has pitched 14.1 innings in the postseason and allowed 7 runs and 17 hits. All the runs were allowed on the road in 7.1 innings. He was just 2-1 with a 3.58 ERA on the road during the regular season and got all his losses at night. Price takes the mound for Boston and he has also allowed 7 runs in the postseason. He was 9-2 at home with a 2.98 ERA this season and he won 10 of his 16 games at night. Last night we had 2 lefties as we do tonight and if I went against Kershaw I have to do the same today.

DODGERS @ RED SOX
LA starts Kershaw who had a great game in his last start allowing 1 run a nd 3 hits in 7 innings. That was in LA and so were his last 4 starts where he allowed 2 runs or less but on the road he allowed at least 3 runs and as many as 5 in his last 4 road games. This time he will be pitching against Boston who are on fire winning 7 of 9 postseason games and 4 of his 5 regular season losses were at night. Sale takes the mound and there isn't much we haven't said before other than when he is on he is as good as they come and he has had plenty of rest and is well prepared to pitch against a team that has most of their players who have never played in Fenway. As a team they are hitting just .218 in the playoffs, .198 in night playoff games and .207 against lefties post season. Gotta give the Sox with Sale a clear advantage in this game.

Buehler has been very good but LA has lost both his post season starts and 3 of his last 4 road starts. There is no question that Mikwaukee has the momentum and the home firld to boot. Chacin has won both his post season starts and the Brewers have won his last 5 games. He allowed just 2 runs in his last 21 innings including no runs in 10.1 postseason innings. the fact that he and the Brewers are the underdog gives me no choice.

DODGERS @ BREWERS
With the series back in Milwaukee where the Brewers are the best, they need to win today to send this series to game 7. The Brewers are 8-2 in Miley's last 10 starts and I wouldn't count his last as he faced just 1 batter. Meanwhile LA is just 4-12 in their last 16 Championship road games and 2-11 in Ryu's last 13 road starts against teams with winning records. The Brewers have a big advantage at home and Miley got all of his wins at night during the regular season. They are also 5-1 in their last 6 at home against lefties.

BREWERS @ DODGERS
Miley pitches for Milwaukee and he hasn't allowed a run in the post season in his 2 starts. He was 5-2 with a 2.57 ERA during the regular season but all 5 wins were at night. The Brewers were also a better team in night games as they finished 3 games under .500 during the day. With last night's win, LA has taken back the momentum and now send their best to the mound. Kershaw was knocked around in Milwaukee in his last start but has not allowed more than 2 runs in 6 straight home starts including 8 shutout innings against the Braves where he allowed just 2 hits in his last LA start. He is a solid 13-3 in his day games since 2015 and 23-9 in home starts. This is a relatively cheap price to get the best in a home start.

Eovaldi pitches for Boston in Game 3 of the ALCS. He shut down the Yanks allowing just 1 run and 5 hits in 7 innings. He isn't usually that sharp obn the road as he was 2-6 with a 5.14 ERA in the regular season on the road. One of the losses was against the Astros in Houston where he allowed 4 runs and 7 hits in 6 innings with all 4 runs solo HR's. Keuchel takes the mound for Houston in his 2nd postseason game. He held Cleveland to 2 runs and 4 hits in 5 innings and that was the 4th game in his last 5 starts he allowed 3 runs or less. Houston won his last 3 starts and have won 7 of their last 9 games. This is a small price for a game at home with Keuchel on the mound.

Keuchel pitches for Houston and with a win today they will sweep Cleveland in the ALDS. He has had an off year compared to his norm as he is 12-11 with a 3.74 ERA.

Foltynewicz has been excellent over the last 2 months allowing more than 2 runs in only 2 of 11 starts. He has a 2.48 road ERA and is 0-1 against LA with that loss in Atlanta. Ryu just might even be pitching better especially in LA where he is 5-2 with a 1.15 ERA. Since coming off the DL he started 9 games and has an ERA of 1.88. The pitching matchup is close but the Braves have lost 5 of 7 against LA this season and finished the season losing 4 of their last 5 games scoring just 2 total runs in the 4 losses all on the road while LA has won 4 straight and 7 of their last 9 while outscoring their last 3 opponents 30-8.

He hasn't pitched more than 2 innings in any appearance while allowing runs in 5 of his 24 total appearances. Of the 11 runs he allowed all year, 8 were on the road and 4 of those were in 1 game in Chicago and 5 were in day games. Oakland has scored at least 4 runs in their last 6 straight games and are 7-3 in their last 10 meetings with NY while going 38-18 in their last 56 games against righties.

After starting off 14-2 and having an ERA of 2.12 over that stretch, he hasn't had and ERA of less than 3.98 in any of the last 3 months and is 5-6 since. NY won 18 of his first 20 starts but are 6-6 in his last 12. The last time he faced Oakland he was rocked for 5 runs and 6 hits in only 2.2 innings and he hasn't pitched more than 5 innings in 7 of his last 14 starts. The Yankees were just 7 games over .500 in the last 2 months of the season while the A's were 51-27 over the last 3 months. I'll go with the hotter more consistent team and the big price.

ROCKIES vs CUBS
Both Kyle Freeland and Jon Lester have been outstanding for their respective teams, but the home field advantage for Chicago, and Colorado's suspect bullpen give us reason to lean toward the Cubs at such a low price. Chicago also has proven playoff performers from the top to the bottom of the lineup, while the Rockies have been brutal in playoff games in recent seasons. I like the Cubs to win this Wildcard battle.

Ryu pitches for LA and he has been almost unhittable at home allowing 2 runs or less in his last 5 home starts as well as getting his last 4 wins there. he is 5-2 at home with a 1.15 ERA but just 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA on the road. Since 2015 he is 6-11 in night games and 0-2 against SF. LA has lost 3 of their last 4 meetings with SF and have cooled off dropping their last 2 games and being outscored 11-5 in the 2 losses. The Dodgers are just 2-6 in his last 8 road starts. This is a huge price to get Bumgarner as a home dog considering he is 4-2 at home with a 1.34 ERA and has a 2.73 ERA at night. As bad as SF is, you are always in a game that he starts at home so I'll take the big price in tonight's game. He is 24-15 at home since 2015.

Scherzer pitches for Washington with a 16-6 record and a 2.13 ERA. He pitched 7 innings and allowed 2 hits and 2 runs in a loss to Philadelphia in his last start. He allowed a 2 run HR and that was the difference as Nola didn't allow any runs in their matchup. They go at it again but I like the Nats to come back as Philadelphia is slumping having lost 3 of their last 4 games and 7 of 10 overall including their last 3 meetings with Washington. The Nats on the other hand have won 2 in a row outscoring their last 2 opponents 20-3. This is about the cheapest price you will ever get on Scherzer so I will take advantage of it.
