MLB | L.A. Angels 3 @ Seattle 6 | 08/07 | 8:10 PM UTC

Seattle -160

WIN

ANALYSIS: I don't usually pick Sundays but I thought this was value I couldn't pass up (plus something to monitor on way home!). The M's have lost two of three in this series and I've somewhat stayed away from them while stud rookie Julio Rodriguez has been out and he still is, but the lineup is better with the Saturday return of outfielder Mitch Haniger from the injured list. I don't think the starting pitching matchup is all that close between Halos lefty Tucker Davidson (1-2, 6.46 ERA with Atlanta) and Seattle left-hander Marco Gonzales (6-11, 3.95 ERA). The M's have won five of their past seven vs. a southpaw.

MLB | Atlanta 2 @ N.Y. Mets 5 | 08/07 | 8:10 PM UTC

Atlanta +122

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I bet on Jacob Degrom in his return from the IL and forgot about the cardinal rule of Mets betting, they give Degrom absolutely no run support. So we will play off that today with Spencer Strider and the Braves trying to avoid losing four of five games in this series. Degrom is on a pitch limit so he shouldn’t go deep and the Braves were embarrassed yesterday getting swept in the doubleheader. I think they will bounce back today and pick up the win, I like this value.

MLB | Toronto 3 @ Minnesota 2 | 08/07 | 6:10 PM UTC

Toronto -170

WIN

ANALYSIS: I was planning on staying off this game at this value today but then I checked the Twins bullpen usage. All of their top three relievers have pitched three of the last four nights, and they haven’t been 5 pitch outings. They have been lengthy outings, so I highly doubt multiple of them are available, if any. However, they have Chris Archer starting today and he notoriously doesn’t pitch more than five innings even if he’s throwing a no hitter. He also seriously struggles with walks and with a Blue Jays team that sees the zone well, that should run his pitch count up. Kevin Gausman is coming off his best start of the season and the Blue Jays bullpen has actually been very good lately. Take the Blue Jays.

MLB | Atlanta 2 @ N.Y. Mets 5 | 08/07 | 8:10 PM UTC

Atlanta +122

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Mets have won five of their last seven against the Braves and have pushed the NL East lead back up to 5 1/2 games, a level it hasn't been since June 21. With Jacob deGrom pitching Sunday for the Mets, it looks like the path is clear to keep increasing the lead. Let's not discount Braves starter Spencer Strider, however, as he's been dominant and is legit. deGrom only went five innings last time out and the Mets will continue to, correctly, handle him with kid gloves. They already pushed Edwin Diaz to two innings on Thursday, too. They've already won this series. The Braves are much more desperate to win Sunday and it'll show. We'll say the Braves rally between deGrom and the ninth (Diaz won't go two innings again) and salvage this one.
