If tonight’s weather cooperates, we will likely see some fantastic baseball action. Sugarhouse has Chris Sale as a heavy favorite against Mike Minor and the Rangers. The Cubs’ Yu Darvish will square off against the potent Rockies lineup at Coors Field. Let’s take a look at the evening’s best bets.
Chicago Cubs at Colorado Rockies (O/U 11)
Yu Darvish has allowed two earned runs or less in his last two starts. Unfortunately, one of those starts came against the Rockies. The Rockies’ batters should be able to put up at least 4-5 runs now that they have seen Darvish’s repertoire. German Marquez has decent numbers in the ’19 campaign yet he has not fared well against the Cubs. The righty allowed eight earned runs in his last outing against the Cubbies. Tonight’s matchup should be a high-scoring contest.
Pick: Cubs moneyline +114 and over 11
Texas Rangers at Boston Red Sox (O/U 8)
|Boston Red Sox||-265|
Mike Minor’s 2.55 ERA is well below his career average of 3.86. The lefty has a 1.22 WHIP along with 87 Ks in 81.1 innings. Sugarhouse’s +230 Rangers moneyline should have baseball bettors salivating. Though Chris Sale will take the mount for the Sox this evening, he has had an inconsistent 2019.
Pick: Rangers moneyline +230
Los Angeles Dodgers at Los Angeles Angels (O/U 9)
|Los Angeles Dodgers||-167|
|Los Angeles Angels||+148|
The Dodgers’ Hyin-Jin Ryu just might win the CY Young award this season. Ryu has a 0.78 WHIP along with a 1.35 ERA. Griffin Canning’s Angels are a disappointing 31-35. Canning has good numbers yet he will face a powerful Dodgers lineup that has absolutely mashed across the first two months of the season. The Dodgers have won 9 of their last 11 contests. Baseball bettors should continue ride the hottest team in baseball.
Pick: Dodgers moneyline -167
Pittsburgh Pirates at Atlanta Braves (O/U 10)
The Atlanta Braves (36-29) are riding a three-game winning streak. The Pirates have lost three straight yet their lineup should be feared simply because Josh Bell is having a MVP year. Kevin Gausman showed some promise earlier this year only to allow eight and seven runs in his last two starts, one of which was against the Pirates. Tonight’s matchup could get ugly.
Pick: Over 10
