MLB | Philadelphia 4 @ Cincinnati 3 | 08/15 | 10:40 PM UTC

Philadelphia -1.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: In six career games against the Reds, Noah Syndergaard has a 5-0 record with a 2.11 ERA and 48 strikeouts. Over the last 10 games, the Phillies are 7-3, batting .270 and outscoring their opponents by 19 runs. Mike Minor takes the mound for the Reds with a 0-6 home record and a 6.25 ERA. In 12 of Minor's starts, the Reds have been outscored by two runs or more in 11 of those games. Over their last 10 games, the Reds are being outscored by 23 runs. The Reds also have a league-worst bullpen with a 4.98 ERA. Play the Phillies runline (-120).

MLB | Kansas City 2 @ Minnesota 4 | 08/15 | 11:40 PM UTC

Minnesota -190

WIN

ANALYSIS: Twins pitcher Joe Ryan has been roughed up in two of his past three outings but those were away -- he's 4-2 with a 2.92 ERA at home and has a 0.77 ERA in two starts overall against Kansas City this year. Regulars Hunter Dozier and Michael Taylor are both out of the KC lineup. It's Kris Bubic (2-6, 5.02 ERA) on the mound for the Royals. Byron Buxton and Jorge Polanco have great splits off him. Twins batters are hitting .289 with 15 doubles, three triples, seven home runs, 42 walks and 48 runs scored against the Royals this season. They have recorded double-digit hit totals in five straight against KC.

MLB | Philadelphia 4 @ Cincinnati 3 | 08/15 | 10:40 PM UTC

Philadelphia -1.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Phillies have struggled to score lately but I think that changes in a big way Monday at Cincinnati. The Reds have lost lefty Mike Minor's last nine starts, and the Phils rank fifth in OPS versus southpaws (.772). Minor isn't likely to pitch deep into the game; he'll be followed by Cincinnati's MLB-worst bullpen (4.98 ERA). Noah Syndergaard is enjoying playing for a contender and should get solid run support. Play the Phillies -1.5 runs at -120.

MLB | Houston 2 @ Chi. White Sox 4 | 08/16 | 12:10 AM UTC

Houston -135

LOSS

ANALYSIS: White Sox starter Johnny Cueto has been living dangerously, The 36-year-old has given up 42 hits over his last five starts, but he's been successful at stranding runners. That might be tougher tonight against the AL-best Astros. Houston is averaging 7 runs during its four-game win streak, albeit against lesser competition. Houston starter Jose Urquidy faces a White Sox lineup that ranks 23rd in OPS versus right-handed pitching. Look for Houston to improve to 21-8 in the past 29 meetings.

MLB | L.A. Dodgers 4 @ Milwaukee 0 | 08/16 | 12:10 AM UTC

L.A. Dodgers -1.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: When the Dodgers win, they cover the runline 62.8 percent of the time. In 18 of Julio Urias' last 22 starts he's given up three runs or less. He's also been great on the road, 7-4 with a 2.27 ERA and is backed up by the NL's best bullpen with a 3.16 ERA. Milwaukee's Freddy Peralta does not have a great ERA at home, 6.26, with a 3-2 record. The Brewers have only averaged 2.33 runs per game in their last three. In their last 10 games, the Brewers are only hitting .217 as a team and have been outscored by three runs. The Dodgers are also 4-0 in their last four meetings against the Brewers. Play the Dodgers on the runline (+100).

MLB | Baltimore 7 @ Toronto 3 | 08/15 | 11:07 PM UTC

Toronto -160

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I don't trust Jays pitcher Yusei Kikuchi all that much, but his home ERA is nearly 2.00 better than on the road, and Toronto gets back leadoff hitter George Springer from the injured list. Kyle Bradish (6.42 ERA) is on the bump for the Orioles.

MLB | San Diego 0 @ Miami 3 | 08/15 | 10:40 PM UTC

UNDER 6.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Believe this is the first time all season I've gone Under a 6.5 (wouldn't do it at 6), but I sure struggle to see many runs being scored. The Marlins are atrocious offensively as it is and are sitting Garrett Cooper and Brian Anderson against Joe Musgrove (2.91 ERA). I just have to hope Sandy Alcantara keeps a good Padres lineup largely in check as well. The Cy Young betting favorite is certainly capable of that with a 1.80 ERA at home. Miami is 8-14 O/U in Alcantara starts.
