The gambling community’s attention will soon be focused on football yet there are still countless opportunities to make money on baseball. Tonight’s pitching matchups do not exactly feature the best arms in the game. However, an in-depth analysis of these matchups reveals a number of mismatches and attractive over/under run totals as set by Parx. Without further adieu, let’s take a look at the likely outcomes of tonight’s games.
St. Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh Pirates O/U 9
|St. Louis Cardinals||-141|
Adam Wainwright is still capable of holding the opposition to a couple runs across six or seven frames. The veteran righty pitched a shutout in his last outing, albeit against a weak Giants lineup. Steven Brault allowed four earned runs across 4.2 innings the last time he faced the Cardinals. This is a Saturday home game for the Pirates so they should give a good effort. This one should go over Parx’s run total of nine.
Pick: Over 9
Los Angeles Angels at Chicago White Sox O/U 10
|Los Angeles Angels||-175|
|Chicago White Sox||+140|
Andrew Heaney allowed two long balls and three earned runs in his last outing against the White Sox. The Sox right-handed batters should be able to put up at least three or four runs off Heaney simply because he is a lefty. Sox pitcher Dylan Covey has a 6.88 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP. Covey seems to allow either one earned run per outing or five to six runs. Chicago fans will likely be treated to a high-scoring, entertaining game this evening.
Pick: Over 10
Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets O/U 8.5
|New York Mets||-167|
The Mets have quickly become one of the scariest teams in baseball. Marcus Stroman will take the hill this evening against Philadelphia. Parx has Stroman as a fairly heavy -167 favorite. Phillies pitcher Drew Smyly has a 6.65 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP along with 98 Ks in 94.2 innings pitched. Smyly gives up a ton of long balls and Stroman should surrender at least three or four runs so this game will likely be high-scoring.
Pick: Over 8.5 and a small play on Mets moneyline
Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres O/U 8.5
|San Diego Padres||-157|
Joey Lucchesi is the superior pitcher in this matchup. However, the Rockies have a slightly more potent lineup than the Friars. However, Jeff Hoffman allowed one earned run across five innings the last time he took on San Diego. This is a Saturday night game at home so Parx has the Padres listed as favorites.
Pick: Padres moneyline and a small play on over 8.5
