Washington 2 @ Miami 8 | 05/16 | 10:40 PM UTC

OVER 8

WIN

ANALYSIS: On the road, the Nats score an average of 5.88 runs per game, more than any other team. Aaron Sanchez has allowed his opponents at least three earned runs in all of his four starts. Sandy Alcantara has been solid, and did well in Washington, but the Nats' road offense should be more of a threat. Both teams do very well against right-handed pitchers, and the Marlins' bullpen was busy yesterday. There's value in the over tonight.

San Francisco 7 @ Colorado 6 | 05/17 | 12:40 AM UTC

Colorado 130

LOSS

ANALYSIS: This Rockies lineup has a lot of experience and success against Giants starter Alex Wood. The Rockies are a very good home team as they have a 12-7 record at Coors Field. With this field being the most hitter friendly field in the league, the Rockies will be able to put up a bunch of runs on a familiar opponent. Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela has been great at home as he has a 2.37 home ERA. At +130, I love the value on the Rockies.

Detroit 3 @ Tampa Bay 2 | 05/16 | 10:40 PM UTC

UNDER 7.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Tigers are currently the lowest scoring team in the league, averaging a dismal 2.86 runs per game. Detroit's struggle to score is especially noticeable on the road, where the under is 11-3 and their average drops to 2.08. Corey Kluber has been decent in most of his starts, and last season he pitched eight scoreless innings to the Tigers. Little to be known about Alex Faedo with only two starts this season, but he went five innings and only allowed two earned runs in each. Faedo has yet to make a start away from Detroit, but the Tigers' great bullpen should come through if Faedo is able to limit the initial damage.

N.Y. Yankees 6 @ Baltimore 2 | 05/16 | 11:05 PM UTC

UNDER 8

PUSH

ANALYSIS: The under has hit in six straight games when the Yankees have played in Baltimore. Luis Severino has struggled since his last appearance versus the Orioles, so hopefully he's able to turn some things around. Kyle Bradish has been a little shaky, but has pitched at least six innings in two of his three starts. The Yankees have the best bullpen ERA as of now, and the Orioles' bullpen has been surprisingly decent. Hopefully both teams' hitters struggle to make contact to compensate for the pitching. The Yankees have been hot lately, but will be without Aaron Judge. I'll take my chances on the under.

L.A. Angels 4 @ Texas 7 | 05/17 | 12:05 AM UTC

L.A. Angels -140

LOSS

ANALYSIS: About the only advantage Texas has here is being at home and I'm not sure that is much of one with the Rangers 7-12 at Globe Life Park and the Angels 12-6 away. Overall, LA looks to move to 12 games over .500 for the first time since July 26, 2015. Noah Syndergaard should be jacked up to pitch in Arlington as he's from Mansfield, Texas, about 15 miles away. "Thor" has worked at least five innings and allowed three-or-fewer runs in each of his first five games for LA. He is the first Angels pitcher to do that since Andrew Heaney (first seven starts) in 2015.

Houston 3 @ Boston 6 | 05/16 | 11:10 PM UTC

Houston 105

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Jake Odorizzi has actually been very good in his past three starts and he has been getting deep into the game. He is also backed up by the best bullpen in the league. Garret Whitlock struggled in his last outing, but mainly isn’t built up enough to get deep into the game. The Red Sox bullpen behind him also isn’t great. This is the first time these teams are meeting since the Astros eliminated the Red Sox from the playoffs last season so both teams should be focused on a win. However, the Astros have won 12 of 13 games so I am not sure why they are underdogs. Take the Astros to stay hot.

L.A. Angels 4 @ Texas 7 | 05/17 | 12:05 AM UTC

L.A. Angels -145

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Rangers were able to get some runs yesterday but their bats have seriously been struggling overall. These teams played a 4-game series in Texas earlier this season and the Angels won three of four. Jon Gray just hasn’t been able to find his footing yet this season missing multiple starts with various injuries. He pitched well in his last start on May 9th but he only made it 4.1 innings. The Rangers bullpen has actually been much better lately too to counteract that, but the Angels bullpen has been even better. Take the Angels to stay hot.

L.A. Angels 4 @ Texas 7 | 05/17 | 12:05 AM UTC

L.A. Angels -145

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Angels are a great team. They are 9-3 in their last 12 games and now they have Noah Syndergaard on the mound who has only allowed eight runs in five starts. Rangers starter Jon Gray has only pitched in road games this season. He has a 5.51 ERA and that should only increase in this game. The Angels batters should have no problem putting up runs in this game. Take the Angels.

Atlanta 0 @ Milwaukee 1 | 05/16 | 11:40 PM UTC

Milwaukee -150

WIN

ANALYSIS: Frankly, I am starting to get tired of these lines jumping 10-20 cents after the lineups are out and before the lineups are made public, but apparently that's just another house edge we have to deal with now. However, the Braves will be without Ronald Acuna Jr. and their top two relievers in Kenley Jansen and AJ Minter would be pitching their third straight day if they were to appear. The Brewers will probably still be without Andrew McCutchen on the COVID IL and Willy Adames who left last night’s game early with an injury, but they have still been the best team against righties in the past two weeks. The Brewers have been much better at home this season at 10-4 and the Braves have been playing sloppy lately. They made multiple errors in each of their last two games in critical moments. That doesn’t just get cleaned up overnight, clearly. Ian Anderson has been pitching well but he doesn’t usually get deep into the game, and he has walk issues. Freddy Peralta has been good as well and he has been able to avoid the walk issues that have plagued him in the past. Take the Brewers at home.
