The Indians had their six-game win streak snapped Tuesday to the Orioles. In the final game of their series Wednesday, the Indians are justifiably lopsided favorites against the home Orioles. Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman has struggled of late and I look for the Indians to take advantage.

Four consecutive losses have put the Phillies at 22-47. A solid effort Tuesday by starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson was thwarted by seven runs allowed from the bullpen. This puts attractive value Wednesday on the Phillies. Look for an improved result from Phillies starter Nick Pivetta, who struggled in a start against the Cardinals earlier this season.
The home underdog A's appear to have some value Wednesday. Oddsmakers have to yield proper consideration to Houston?s home-road splits. Furthermore, the Astros pounded A's ace Sonny Gray in last Tuesday?s 8-4 victory. Grab Oakland in this one.
Three straight strong outings from Jordan Zimmermann have given the Tigers a bit of false turn around perception. Coming off his longest outing of the season with eight innings and 108 pitches is worrisome here. Grab the value of unheralded Mariners starter Ariel Miranda on Tuesday.
Under normal circumstances, the Diamondbacks with be a decent-size favorite with Zack Greinke on the mound. But the Rockies are riding a five-game winning streak behind a burst of what looks like an unstoppable offense. Back Colorado to keep it going Tuesday.
