Solid 3-1 night but still more work to do this week! A Hump Day sweep would be nice, so let's go and get it!
Rangers ML / Braves ML (-122)
Seems too easy right?
The Rangers have handled the A’s in the first 2 games of their series outsourcing them 11-4.
Jordan Montgomery will pitch for the Rangers & he was great in his Rangers debut last time out pitching 6 innings while only allowing 2 runs
The Rangers lineup will be up against 2-6 Austin Pruitt and whoever comes out of the A’s bullpen which I’m projecting could be Blackburn or Harris and they should hit either guy pretty hard
The Braves had a crazy comeback last night to win but have split the first 2 games of their series with the Pirates despite leaving 17 runners on base in those games.
They’ve had plenty of scoring opportunities and that should be the case again tonight when they face the 22 year old pitcher Quinn Priester who comes in with an 8.69 ERA
Max Fried is pitching for the Braves & he threw 6 scoreless innings in his last start plus he only allowed 2 runs in 14 innings against the Pirates last season
Red Sox (Pivetta) (-1.5)
It’s Jordan Lyle Day at Fenway and I can’t help but jump on the Red Sox to cover the run line
Lyles is 3-12 with a 6.24 ERA on the season & the Sox come in hitting just under .300 against him
Nick Pivetta will start for the Red Sox & he’s silently been pitching pretty good and good enough for the Sox to cover the run line in 3 of his last 4 starts at home
I wouldn’t bet on the Sox if they were facing any other pitcher tonight but c’mon, it’s Jordan fucking Lyles guys!
Dodgers (Miller) (-134)
The Dodgers will face Merrill Kelly and he’s a guy who they pretty much always beat. They are 11-1 in their last 12 games against him.
The LA lineup comes in hitting .303 against him in a huge sample size and 6 of the 9 guys in the lineup have hit atleast 1 career homerun against him.
6-2 Bobby Miller will pitch for the Dodgers & this will be the first time he’s ever faced the DBacks
The DBacks continue to struggle and are 3-13 in their last 16 so let’s take the Dodgers at a pretty good price here
