VIP Picks 6/29/24

Officially ice cold this week. Wtf. We need a Saturday like last Saturday where we went undefeated with a hammer.


MLB:

4:05 EST

Phillies ML / Dodgers ML (+102) JACKHAMMER 🥇

  • I won’t call it the get out of the hole play but it seems like a really good one.

  • Phi is 2-20 with runners in scoring position the last 2 games which is a concerning stat but facing a young pitcher with a 5.80 ERA should put them in position to improve those numbers.

  • 9-3 Aaron Nola pitching for Phils and he’s held this Marlins lineup to a .188 career avg.

  • Tyler Glasnow is pitching for the Dodgers and he comes in with a 2.88 ERA plus he’s held the Giants to a .140 avg.

  • It looks like a bullpen day for the Giants and their bullpen ranks in the bottom 3rd of the league. 


4:10 EST

Pirates / Braves NO Runs in the 1st 🥉

  • Skenes vs Fried should make for a dominant pitching matchup

  • Skenes comes in with a 2.14 ERA and Fried comes in with a 3.00 ERA 

  • These teams have gone NO runs in the 1st in 3 of their 4 head to head games this season. 


4:10 EST

Red Sox (Houck) (-148) 🥈

  • The Red Sox will have Tanner Houck on the mound who is just 7-5 but he has the 2nd best ERA in the league at 2.18. The Red Sox have won 7 straight games with him on the mound.

  • Michael King will pitch for the Padres and he’s coming off of a rough start where he gave up 5 runs on 9 hits in 6 innings. The Red Sox also come in hitting .387 against him led by Devers who has gone 5 for 8 with 2 homeruns off of him.
