This evening’s slate of baseball games has the potential to prove entertaining and profitable for baseball gamblers. The Nats’ Stephen Strasburg will take the hill against Reynaldo Lopez’s White Sox. Reigning AL Cy Young award winner Blake Snell will attempt to silence the Tigers’ bats in Comerica Park. Though temperatures are a bit chilly along the east coast, it looks like the skies will be clear to get in a full nine innings in each contest.
Philadelphia Phillies at San Diego Padres (O/U 8)
|San Diego Padres||-162|
Chris Paddack has been fantastic this year. Though Paddack allowed four earned runs in his last outing against the Bronx Bombers, he has posted a 0.82 WHIP along with a 2.40 ERA. The Phillies’ Jerad Eickhoff has struggled in his last four outings, allowing at least four earned runs in each start. It looks like the Phillies will be without Andrew McCutchen after losing the outfielder to a knee sprain.
Pick: Padres moneyline -162
Oakland A’s at Los Angeles Angels (O/U 8.5)
|Los Angeles Angels||-120|
The Angels are on a roll, having won 7 of their last 10. The A’s have lost five straight including back-to-back losses against the Angels. However, Sugarhouse has the Angels as slight favorites this evening, partially because the A’s Frankie Montas will take the hill. Montas is 6-2 with a 1.20 WHIP and a sub-3.00 ERA. The Angels’ Griffin Canning has similar numbers. This should be a low-scoring game in which the Angels emerge victorious.
Pick: Angels moneyline -120
Tampa Bay Rays at Detroit Tigers (O/U 8.5)
|Tampa Bay Rays||-265|
Sugarhouse has Blake Snell as a heavy favorite against a terrible Tigers team. Ryan Carpenter will pitch for the Tigers. The lefty has a whopping 7.58 ERA along with a mere 15 strikeouts in 19 innings pitched. Things could get ugly this evening against a surprisingly potent Rays lineup.
Pick: Rays run line -1.5 @ -150
Chicago White Sox at Washington Nationals (O/U 8.5)
|Chicago White Sox||+230|
In what might be the evening’s best matchup, Stephen Strasburg and the Nats will face Reynaldo Lopez and the White Sox. Sugarhouse has Strasburg’s Nats as a massive favorite yet baseball gamblers must question whether Washington’s lineup can provide adequate run support.
Pick: Under 8.5
