L.A. Angels 5 @ Texas 10 | 05/18 | 12:05 AM UTC

OVER 8.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Reid Detmers gave up five earned runs to the Rangers in his start against them last month. The Angels were able to score three on Taylor Hearn. The Angels hit left-handed pitchers well, so I expect them to make up for the loss yesterday. Detmers has struggled in both of his road starts this season, so ideally the Angels give him some decent run support. There have been at least nine runs scored seven straight times these teams have played each other in Texas.

Chi. White Sox 1 @ Kansas City 2 | 05/17 | 11:10 PM UTC

Kansas City +1.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: My White Sox are way too inconsistent to sweep a road doubleheader, and closer Liam Hendriks surely can't be available after pitching Monday and Game 1 this afternoon. Tony La Russa almost is passing on Game 2 with a watered-down lineup sans Tim Anderson (the Sox are 27-27 since 2000 when he sits and WAY over .500 when he plays) and Jose Abreu. Davis Martin makes his first big-league start on the mound and he has a career 4.63 ERA in the minors. It's Brady Singer for the Royals. He has thrown two scoreless innings this year against Chicago and had a 1.35 ERA vs. the White Sox last year in 13.1 innings. The Royals were a bit unlucky in Game 1, going 0-for-12 in scoring situations and stranding 12 baserunners, a season high. RL at -165.

Boston 107 @ Miami 118 | 05/18 | 12:30 AM UTC

Miami -2.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Marcus Smart and Al Horford have been ruled out of Tuesday's game, and that should give the Heat a significant advantage. While the home team won't have Kyle Lowry, the absence of Boston's top playmaker and rebounder is more impactful. If you combine those factors with the fact the Robert Williams will have to hold down Bam Adebayo after missing four games, Miami seems like the easy choice against the spread.

St. Louis 4 @ N.Y. Mets 3 | 05/17 | 10:50 PM UTC

St. Louis 110

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Mets used all their top relievers in this win since the Cardinals were able to keep it close enough. Steven Matz is hit or miss but the Mets are much worse against lefties, and they will also be missing some right handed firepower with Starling Marte on the bereavement list. I like the Cards to split.

Washington 1 @ Miami 7 | 05/17 | 10:40 PM UTC

OVER 8.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Joan Adon has allowed his opponents three or more earned runs in six of his seven starts this season. This will be Cody Poteet's first start of the season. Although he has done very well in his relief appearances, he gave up five earned runs in three innings in a start versus the Nats last season. The over is 12-3-2 when the Nationals play on the road, and 7-1 in the Marlins last eight at home. The Nats score an average of 5.65 runs per game on the road, and the Marlins score an average of 4.76 at home. Take the over.

Chi. White Sox 1 @ Kansas City 2 | 05/17 | 11:10 PM UTC

Kansas City -105

WIN

ANALYSIS: The White Sox used their top bullpen arms in game 1 while the Royals were able to save theirs. The Royals also left 12 runners on base and just couldn’t push any runners across. They should have more success against a White Sox pitcher making his debut. Brady Singer has struggled but if he keeps his command, he should have success against the White Sox righties. Tim Anderson and Jose Abreu are also out. Take the home team to split.

Boston 107 @ Miami 118 | 05/18 | 12:30 AM UTC

Miami -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: I echo a lot of what Mike Barner said. The Heat will be without Kyle Lowry but that's probably better at this point as bad as he looked in the two games he played in the previous series vs. Philly, and Miami is well-rested. Boston is on a quick turnaround after finishing the Bucks on Sunday, and it sounds like the C's will not have NBA Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart. This ML is starting to tick up a bit, so I'm guessing the books know something already on Smart.

Seattle 0 @ Toronto 3 | 05/17 | 11:07 PM UTC

Toronto -140

WIN

ANALYSIS: Seattle's Logan Gilbert (4-1, 2.13) has better numbers than Toronto's Jose Berrios (2-2, 5.82), but Gilbert has shown some cracks in the past two starts and Berrios is just too good to continue with an ERA near 6.00. His past two home starts were quite good. And the Jays are simply different beasts offensively at Rogers Centre, why we won on them Monday. Toronto batters currently rank 3rd in the AL in home SLG (.423), 4th in home AVG (.249), 4th in home OPS (.738), and 6th in home OBP (.315). I frankly don't know why the M's are starting both Mike Ford (.154, 0 HR, 4 RBI) and Steven Souza (.154, 0 HR, 1 RBI). Those should be automatic outs along with catcher Cal Raleigh (.086, 2 HR, 3 RBI).

Houston 13 @ Boston 4 | 05/17 | 11:10 PM UTC

Houston 105

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Astros top ranked bullpen let them down last night as they had a late lead and blew it. If you would have told me it would be a tie game with a bullpen game to finish, I would have taken the Astros over again at plus money in a heartbeat, but that’s jut how our luck has been going lately. The Red Sox used plenty of bullpen arms last night while Dusty Baker interestingly didn’t use his top bullpen guys for various reasons. The Red Sox bats are hot right now and I think they could go on a bit of a run, but I think the Astros at least steal a game from this series. Jeremy Pena is back in the lineup as well, I like the Astros at this value.
