Baseball gamblers have plenty to pick from on tonight’s slate. The blazing hot Dodgers host the Rockies while the Yankees’ ace, Masahiro Tanaka, squares off against an Astros lineup returning to form. Here is a quick look at this evening’s best bets.
Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals (O/U 10.5)
Anibal Sanchez has been pitching in the big leagues for 13 years. The righty from Venezuela has a 3.84 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. Sanchez has not allowed more than three earned runs since a late April start against the Rockies. Tonight just might be the night for Sanchez’s streak to end as he will face quite the potent Atlanta lineup. The Braves will roll out Mike Foltynewicz to the hill. Foltynewicz has a mere 48 strikeouts across 55.1 frames. Foltynewicz’s saving grace might be the fact that Washington hitters have yet to see his arsenal this season. Sugarhouse’s +116 moneyline on the underdog braves is awfully tempting.
Pick: Braves moneyline +116
Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Dodgers (O/U 8)
|Los Angeles Dodgers||-286|
The Rockies’ baby-faced Peter Lambert allowed eight earned runs on nine hits the last time he pitched. Things could get ugly tonight against the World Series favorite Los Angeles Dodgers. However, the Rockies’ bats always have the potential to put a crooked number on the board. This just might be the night when Hyun-Jin Ryu allows more than a couple runs. The law of averages says Ryu is due for a blowup.
Pick: Rockies run line +1.5 +108
Houston Astros at New York Yankees (O/U 10)
|New York Yankees||-177|
One has to wonder why Sugarhouse has the Bronx Bombers listed as only a -177 favorite in a Saturday night home game. The Astros have a solid lineup yet Wade Miley should surrender at least half a dozen runs to the Yanks’ plethora of powerful right-handed bats. Do not be deceived by Miley’s superb start to the season; he will likely regress to the mean in the coming months. After all, Miley’s career ERA is 4.20. Gamblers should consider the Yankees moneyline and possibly the run line of -1.5 that Sugarhouse has set at +112.
Pick: Yankees moneyline -177
Chicago White Sox at Texas Rangers (O/U 11)
|Chicago White Sox||+165|
Lance Lynn has had a fantastic start to the season yet he will face a White Sox lineup with ample right-handed power. This is precisely why Sugarhouse has the over/under set at 11 runs. Odrisamer Despaigne Odrisamer Despaigne is 0-2 with an 8.71 ERA and a putrid 2.13 WHIP. This one could get ugly.
Pick: Over 11
