Ketel Marte OVER 1.5 Total Bases - Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Milwaukee Brewers

Marte’s licking his chops to face Brewers left-hander Eric Lauer this evening. The switch-hitting Diamondbacks infielder in 14 career at-bats has a .500 batting average against him; to go along with three of the seven hits going for extra bases.

He’s also significantly better from the right side of the plate this season; hitting .305 with a .374 weighted-on-base-average (wOBA) against southpaws. At home, those numbers get even better.
The Diamondbacks have been a scorching-hot offense over the past week, and now it’s time for Marte to get in on the fun. – Ben Heisler

Lance McCullers OVER 5.5 Strikeouts – Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels

McCullers has only cleared this line once since returning to the lineup, but he’s playing the Angels tonight. Every editor here at BetSided has subscribed to the strategy of taking a pitcher’s strikeout OVER whenever they are playing the Angels. Los Angeles averages the most strikeouts per game and has the highest strikeout rate in baseball. McCullers is an ace and has the easiest matchup of any pitcher on the slate. – Donnavan Smoot
