MLB | San Diego 3 @ Washington 4 | 08/13 | 11:05 PM UTC

OVER 9

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Nats over is 6-1-2 over their last nine games, where they've allowed opponents an average of 7.78 runs per game over this stretch. The Padres have scored a total of 30 runs over their last three games, and they'll face one of the worst Nats starters in Anibal Sanchez tonight. Sanchez has only pitched 25.0 innings this season, but has allowed opponents a total of 21 earned runs. Padres ace Yu Darvish is making the start tonight, but he still has a 4.37 ERA away from home this season. Both teams' bullpens should be worn down after yesterday's game, so I'll take the over at +105.

MLB | L.A. Dodgers 13 @ Kansas City 3 | 08/13 | 11:10 PM UTC

L.A. Dodgers -1.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Andrew Heaney has a 0.64 ERA this season. Granted, he’s only pitched 28.0 innings, but has allowed just two earned runs. In his six starts, the Dodgers are 5-1 on the run line. Brad Keller has been better at home, but has a 6.64 ERA in his last four starts. The Dodgers have now won and covered the -1.5 run line in 11 consecutive games. Lay the juice at -177 and continue to ride the streak.

MLB | Minnesota 3 @ L.A. Angels 5 | 08/14 | 1:07 AM UTC

Minnesota -113

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Veteran pitcher Dylan Bundy’s road ERA over 6.00 raises caution about backing Minnesota. But Bundy should be in a favorable spot tonight, considering the Angels had just four hits in a shutout loss Friday. Expect Bundy to work out of jams and survive five innings as the Twins get another road win.

MLB | Atlanta 6 @ Miami 2 | 08/13 | 11:10 PM UTC

Miami +150

LOSS

ANALYSIS: We’re going right back to the Marlins to try to avoid the doubleheader sweep at home. Nick Neidert was solid in his only start this season but the Marlins should have success against Ian Anderson who is making his first start since being sent down. They hit him well each of the first two times they faced him. The loser of the first game of a doubleheader wins the second game about 70% of the time, so I like the odds on the Marlins in Game 2.

MLB | Milwaukee 3 @ St. Louis 2 | 08/13 | 11:15 PM UTC

Milwaukee -143

WIN

ANALYSIS: Expect the Brewers to challenge the Cardinals' stout home record (36-20) tonight. Milwaukee starter Corbin Burnes has gone seven innings in both of his starts against St. Louis this year. He allowed two hits in each while striking out at least 10 as the Brewers won with shutouts. Take Milwaukee.

MLB | Chi. Cubs 7 @ Cincinnati 2 | 08/13 | 10:40 PM UTC

Cincinnati -122

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Throughout the second half of the season, the Cubs have been a true pendulum team. They are 5-2 over their last seven games, including a big win over the Reds in Thursday’s Field of Dreams Game. They did that with pitching that held opponents to three runs or fewer in six of the seven games. Today, look for the Reds to be aggressive and get the necessary run production to cash. Take the Reds.

MLB | N.Y. Yankees 3 @ Boston 2 | 08/13 | 11:15 PM UTC

N.Y. Yankees -145

WIN

ANALYSIS: Frankie Montas makes his second start as a Yankee, and his first one wasn't very good. Look for Montas to bounce back today. Boston's Cutter Crawford has been better than expected, but this will be his second start against the Yankees. Both teams are 11-19 over their last 30 games, but the Yankees rank sixth offensively against righties while Boston is No. 22. The Yankees also have a huge edge in the bullpen, with Boston ranking dead last in ERA since July 1. Top Red Sox reliever Garrett Whitlock pitched two innings Friday and won't be available tonight.

+1482 16-2 IN LAST 18 MLB PICKS

MLB | Atlanta 5 @ Miami 2 | 08/13 | 5:10 PM UTC

OVER 7.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Braves are going with left-handed pitcher Kyle Muller. Muller's first start of the season resulted in him giving up seven earned runs in just 2.2 innings. Miami is starting another southpaw in Jesus Luzardo, who pitched well against the Braves in Atlanta earlier this season. Still, I expect the Marlins to put up a couple on Muller, which should ignite a reaction from the Braves offense. Braves games have totaled at least eight runs 14-5 since the All-Star Break. We saw both teams leave a lot of men on base last night, so hopefully, we're able to see some hits convert to runs tonight.

MLB | Baltimore 2 @ Tampa Bay 8 | 08/13 | 8:10 PM UTC

Tampa Bay -190

WIN

ANALYSIS: Shane McClanahan against DL Hall, whom I think was on the Fresh Prince. Yeah sign me up. Hall was 2-7 with a 4.52 ERA in the minors this season as he makes his MLB debut. I am very curious what DL stands for. And don't get me started about the possibilities .... but it's August baseball so ...
