Chicago White Sox/Kansas City Royals Under 8
Dylan Cease is making a strong case for the Cy Young. He’s only given up 5 earned runs in his last 76 innings. This White Sox lineup continues to underachieve. They seem to score 3 runs every game. Greinke has been excellent at home this season for the Royals. This feels like a 3-2 type of game. Take the U8!
The Parlay Kid
Baltimore Orioles to Win
Orioles travel to Boston after getting rained out yesterday. I am hoping that didn’t ruin the momentum they are generating. These are two teams trending in the opposite directions so let’s ride with the O’s who have won seven of eight and are getting plus money.
2-Team Moneyline Parlay: Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox
The Phillies starter Kyle Gibson has given up 2 runs or less in 4 of his last 5 starts. As for the White Sox Dylan Cease has been on fire and hasn't given up 2 or more runs since May 24th. Cease is also 7-1 with a 1.33 ERA on the road this season.
Robbie Ray Under 6.5 K's
Believe it or not but I'm going against my guy Robbie Ray. He has just 14 strikeouts in his last 3 starts and in 5 career games against New York he has never reached 7 strikeouts.
Colorado Rockies to Win
Now that the Rockies ended the Cardinals 7 game win streak, I like the Rockies to win again. The Rockies have won the last 4 games started by Freeland. Quintana got lit up in his last start at Colorado (although was with the Pirates). Give me the Rockies!
The Parlay Kid
3-Team Moneyline Parlay: St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros, Chicago White Sox
I got a major pitching advantage in in all three of these games and quite frankly the advantages don’t end there as these teams are superior all around. Sometimes it really is as easy as it seems. Hoping this is one of those times.
The Parlay Kid
Atlanta Braves -1.5
The Braves make the short trip to Boston after getting thrashed by the Mets in their five-game series. Atlanta is angry and plays the Red Sox who are going through the motions right now. Charlie Morton is on the mound for the Braves and he has pitched scoreless ball in three of his last six outings and normally comes through when his team needs him most. The Atlanta offense should have no trouble smacking around 42-year-old Rich Hill either.
2-Team Moneyline Parlay: Houston Astros, New York Mets
The Astros should be able to take care of their instate rival the Rangers & the Mets Carlos Carrasco has given up just 3 runs in his last 25 innings pitched.
Seattle Storm +5
I’d continue to ride the Dodgers and Mets, but I’m sticking with the WNBA tonight. This game is really important for the Storm to get the 4th seed and home court in the first round. The two matchups in this series this season have been very close. The Storm haven’t played that well since the All-Star break. They need to start playing better now if they want to have a chance of winning the championship. This game will be close. Give me the Storm +5!
