Even on the road, the Dodgers continue to be heavy favorites for obvious reasons. On Saturday Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the start, opposed by Michael Fulmer. At one point Fulmer had a 10-5 record before dropping five straight. Value is down here a bit on the Dodgers as Ryu is an average five to six inning pitcher. Yet, continue to follow the down trend on Fulmer and grab the Dodgers.

The Astros are heavy home favorites Saturday with Colin McHugh on the mound. McHugh has battled injuries to return to the starting rotation with an 0-2 record and a 4.88 ERA, certainly not worthy numbers for a high favorite against a capable pitcher in Kendall Graveman. But seek the value as the Astros solidify their home dominance against the abysmal A's 19-38 road record.
The Mariners jumped out early on the Rays Friday with three first inning runs. On Saturday they?ll attempt to keep their bats hot against veteran Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi. Odorizzi?s recent woes are compounded with the fact that the Rays have lost seven of eight. Even though Ariel Miranda has not won since June 30th, don?t jump the home side here. Grab Seattle.
Giants starter Matt Moore has not won since June 20, but with the Phillies owning a road record of 19-44, this line is skewed. Bettors are attracted to San Fran here because of Zach Eflin's erratic performances. I look for the Phils' cold bats to attack Moore and get the win.
Friday, the Diamondbacks travel to Minnesota for the start of a three-game series. In Thursday's impressive 4-0 win over the Astros, Arizona did not need to use its bullpen. That?s a prime factor against a Twins team that played in a home double-header Thursday against the Indians. Grab the Diamondbacks.
