Most of tonight’s baseball action along the coasts should be played under clear skies. The Midwest might be a different story as hail, flash floods and even a couple tornadoes might plague inland America. Let’s take a look at tonight’s matchups.
Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Dodgers (O/U 8.5)
|Los Angeles Dodgers||-215|
Sugarhouse has Kenta Maeda as a heavy favorite even though he is unlikely to pitch past the 5 or 6-inning mark. This betting line is a testament to the strength of the Dodger lineup. Antonio Senzatela will pitch for Colorado. Senzatela has allowed a single earned run in three of his last four starts. However, Senzatela has walked four batters in each of his last outings. The Rockies have good value tonight.
Pick: Rockies run line +1.5 -106
San Francisco Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks (O/U 9)
|San Francisco Giants||+123|
Merrill Kelly allowed no earned runs, six hits and a walk in his last matchup with the Giants. Kelly’s sub-4 ERA is respectable considering the fact that he has pitched against some of the best lineups in baseball so far this season. Sugarhouse’s -141 Arizona moneyline seems fair.
Pick: Diamondbacks Moneyline -141
Baltimore Orioles at Seattle Mariners (O/U 9)
Yusei Kikuchi has pitched a grand total of 20 innings across his last five starts. Though Kikuchi had a decent start to the season, he has faded in the past month. Kikuchi will face an Orioles lineup with a couple righties capable of taking him yard. Gabriel Ynoa will pitch for the O’s. Ynoa has horrid numbers: an 0-4 record, a 5.65 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 43 innings pitched. This game should go over even if Kikuchi can make it through 5 frames.
Pick: Over 9
Los Angeles Angels at St. Louis Cardinals (O/U 8.5)
|Los Angeles Angels||+117|
|St. Louis Cardinals||-134|
The 40-36 Cardinals play host to the 38-40 Angels. Sugarhouse has the Cardinals’ Miles Mikolas listed as the favorite. Mikolas is coming off one of his best starts of the season, a 6-inning shutout of the Marlins in Miami. However, the Angels’ lineup is much more potent than the Marlins. The Halos’ Tyler Skaggs is also coming off a solid outing, a 7.1 inning effort in which he allowed a single run against Toronto. Skaggs should be able to keep the Cards bats in check.
Pick: Angels Moneyline +117
