  • Astros RL vs. Royals (-115)
  • Padres ML. vs. Brewers (+119)

A $25 wager would win $159.25 if it hits!

Mets vs. Dodgers OVER 8.5 (-120)

The Dodgers to win at home is a safe bet, but lacks any value at -180 against the Mets here. I want the Mets +165 to win outright but they are 0-2 on this road trip and Walker Buehler is on the mound tonight. I think the value here is on the offenses and the OVER here. Buehler is a great pitcher, but he's been getting roughed up a bit since the start of May. He’s allowed four or more runs twice in his last four games and saw his ERA rise from 1.96 to 3.22 in that span. David Peterson will go for the Mets here and is coming off a rough four-run game against the lowly Nationals on Monday. 

With two of the best offenses in the league on tap and two straight low-scoring games, I think we’re in for some fireworks here. 

Astros RL vs. Royals (-115)

Things are going very wrong in Kansas City. The 16-34 Royals are grasping at straws right now in terms of quality pitching. This is evidenced by them sending out Kris Bubic tonight at 0-3 with a 12.83 ERA and 2.25 WHIP. Bubichas made five terrible starts for the Royals so far this year and is searching for success in number six. Spoiler alert, that ain't happening against the Astros. The Royals are trash and Bubic is not the answer. Fade away. 

Padres ML vs. Brewers (+119)

Now we come to the obligatory “longshot pick of the parlay” with the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers. I covered this game separately earlier here. But, after some time to think, I wanted to double down on MacKenzie Gore today. The rookie has been on fire with a 1.71 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 42 innings. He has allowed just one run in his last 16 innings and zero home runs since his first MLB start back in early April. The term “locked-in” feels apt for the type of season Gore is having. Expect it to continue today and for him to give the Padres offense a great chance at an upset on the road.
