Josh James started three games for the Astros last September, but he's been in the bullpen all season long, and he's starting tonight as an emergency starter since Brad Peacock was scratched. The Astros will be playing it by ear, and on the road against an Angels offense that rarely strikes out and has been red hot since the break, I like the value on the home team here.

Nothing like a hot summer night at Wrigley Field with the wind blowing directly out to centerfield. Kyle Hendricks has struggled with his command since returning from injury, and even if he's better tonight, and Luis Castillo pitches well, Wrigley is a Little League field in these weather conditions.

It's not exactly a battle of the titans on the mound in this game, but neither of these offenses are very potent, and while neither pitcher piles up strikeouts, they don't walk many, either. This total is too low.

On the whole, St. Louis' Jack Flaherty has been better than his numbers indicate. He gets a lot of strikeouts, and doesn't issue too many walks. Where he runs into problems, however, is he allows too many fly balls. Fly balls that have a tendency to leave the park. So I like this matchup for the Seattle offense, but I don't have enough faith in the Seattle pitching staff to take the Mariners. I do think there's value on this total, though.

It'll be a warm, summer evening in Citi Field with two pitchers who get a lot of strikeouts. One of those starters, James Paxton, has also walked a lot of hitters and gives up a lot of fly balls. Mets starter Zack Wheeler does a better job limiting walks and fly balls, yet still has problems with the longball from time to time. I'm expecting souvenirs on Tuesday.
