Take a look at the baseball gambling lines Parx has set for tonight’s action and you will be salivating. There are countless juicy matchups to pick from if you are looking to make some cash on America’s pastime this evening. Here is a quick look at your best bets for tonight’s ballgames.
Seattle Mariners at Chicago Cubs
Felix Hernandez and Jon Lester are clearly past their prime. Felix “The King” no longer reigns supreme. The once-dynamic righty is 1-4 with a 6.02 ERA. However, Hernandez wasn’t that terrible in his last two outings in which he allowed five earned runs across 10.2 innings. Jon Lester is as inconsistent as it gets. Lester has a 4.36 ERA on the season, which is well above his career ERA of 3.55. Lester’s WHIP of 1.44 is also well above his career average of 1.26. Though both pitchers appear to be washed up, the Cubs batters certainly are not. The Cubs are a threat to put up double digit runs on any given evening in the season of the juiced baseball. Add in the fact that Hernandez allowed four earned runs over six innings the last time he faced the Cubs and it is easy to see why Parx has the Cubs as heavy favorites tonight.
Pick: Cubs moneyline
Houston Astros at Milwaukee Brewers O/U 9
The Brewers are quite familiar with Zack Greinke as they faced him several times while he pitched with the Diamondbacks in the National League. Though Greinke has been solid since he joined the Astros, he allowed five earned runs in 5.2 innings in his last start. Jordan Lyles has horrible numbers on the season yet he has been fantastic since joining the Brewers. Lyles has held opponents to one earned run or less in all but one start since being traded.
Pick: Brewers moneyline
Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians O/U 9
|Chicago White Sox||+290|
Dylan Cease Cease allowed eight earned runs in his last start, lasting merely two innings. Mike Clevinger has allowed one earned run across his past three starts. This is precisely why Parx has the Indians as gigantic favorites tonight. Cleveland should win this one with ease.
Pick: Indians moneyline
New York Mets at Washington Nationals O/U 7.5
|New York Mets||+116|
In one of the evening’s most anticipated matchups, the Mets and Jacob deGrom will square off with the Nats and Max Scherzer. Scherzer has allowed six earned runs in the 13.1 innings he has pitched since returning from injury. The St. Louis native should get back on track tonight against the Mets. However, gamblers must question whether the Nats can hit deGrom. Though deGrom disappointed in his last start, a 4-1 loss to the Cubs, he has been lights out this season. This one should go under.
Pick: Under 7.5
