Game 1: Kansas City Royals @ Houston Astros
Play- Houston Astros -1 1/2 @ -160
Risk $100 to win $62.50
The play here is definitely the Astros. Let us start with the obvious Gerrit Cole vs Jason Hammel. In games started by Cole, the Astros have won 13 and have only lost 2 games. Out of those 13 wins in games started by Cole 10 have been by more than 1 run. Comparatively, the Royals have lost by an average of 4.33 runs in the last 3 games started by Hammel.
Batting wise, the Astros are the better option due to the superior offensive firepower that they possess. One stat that proves this is batting average in day games between the two clubs. The Astros bat .269 and the Royals bat a poor .228. All things in this game point to the Astros covering the -1 1/2 spread making the odds at -160 favorable in this match-up.
Game 2: Baltimore Orioles @ Atlanta Braves
Play: Atlanta Braves ML @ -170
Risk $100 to win $58.82
The Orioles have shocked the Braves in the last two games by beating them by 3 and 2. It will be hard to imagine the Braves being swept by one of the worst teams in baseball. So put the money down on the Braves money line, as they avoid the sweep behind the arm of Brandon McCarthy. Opposing pitcher David Hess has not gone over 5 innings in the last 2 games and has allowed 5 runs in both of those outings. With the Braves bats hot I foresee the same outcome from Hess and a solid outing from McCarthy that will be enough for the Braves to deny the Orioles their first sweep of the season.
Game 3: St.Louis Cardinals @ Milwaukee Brewers
Play: Milwaukee Brewers ML @ -130
Risk $100 to win $76.92
The Brewers aim for the series victory over the Cardinals on Sunday behind the arm of Jhoulys Chacin who has been terrific in the month of June holding an ERA of 1.85 and the Brewers have won 10 of his past 12 starts. This should prove significant as Cardinals pitcher Luke Weaver has had his worst month of the season with an ERA of 5.75 and has 4 losses and 0 wins over his last seven starts. This game will probably be more of a pitchers duel, and that leaves the advantage to the Brewers as they have the better starter for the game. Ride the Brew Crew.
Game 4: Texas Rangers @ Minnesota Twins
Play: Under 9 @ EVEN
Risk $100 to win $100
Under is the play here at a high 9 runs. As the home favorite in a game, the under hits 57% for the Twins, and the under hits 51% in all Twins games this season. Expect the same in this matchup as Jose Berrios is having his best month of the year so far, and has not allowed more than 2 runs in any of his last three starts. For Bartolo Colon, he has not allowed more than three runs this season against teams that are worse than 20th in batting in the MLB. The Twins are 23rd in batting this season. Both teams also hit under .240 in day games this season, and both pitchers have an ERA below 3.60 in day starts as well. Under 9 is the play.
