Braves starter R.A. Dickey has given up five or more runs in three of his past six starts. Although he has been much better at home this season, I think the surging Brewers will be able to do some damage Saturday. Milwaukee starter Matt Garza has been better on the road, with a 3.80 ERA compared to 4.88 at home.

The Rays get can to four games above .500 for the first time in more than two years with a win Friday against the Orioles. But I think Tampa Bay has overachieved to this point and is headed toward a regression. I've long believed Chris Archer gets priced as an elite starter but his performance doesn't support it -- he's 5-4 with a 3.75 ERA this year. The current Orioles lineup is hitting .260 against him. This is a good value spot on a big underdog.

These two surprising teams are both surging, with the Diamondbacks winning seven straight and the Rockies in the midst of a five-game win streak when they meet Tuesday at Coors Field. The price is flat but I am going to go with Arizona behind Zack Greinke, who is 8-4 all-time against Colorado and 3-0 with a 4.03 ERA in Denver. Rockies starter German Marquez is 0-1 with a 3.75 ERA against the Diamondbacks this season. Colorado owns a 4-2 edge in the season series thus far, but look for Arizona to have the advantage Tuesday.

Fri 6/16

Red Sox starter Rick Porcello has struggled most of this season, but I like him as an underdog Saturday against the Astros. Houston is going with fill-in starter David Paulino, who was rocked for five runs on six hits against the Angels while failing ot get out of the fifth inning. Boston also has won Porcello's last five Saturday's starts. Houston is starting to fade after its fantastic start and this is a value fade spot.
