MLB | Minnesota 2 @ L.A. Angels 4 | 08/14 | 8:07 PM UTC

Minnesota -135


ANALYSIS: The Twins will have seven right-handed batters in Sunday's lineup, which should spell trouble for Angels lefty starter Tucker Davidson. Right-handed batters are hitting .305 against Davidson with an .812 OPS. Chris Archer likewise has been struggling, but he's 6-2 with a 2.50 career ERA versus the Angels. He'll be supported by a top-10 bullpen. Look for Minnesota to bounce back from Saturday's heartbreaking loss in extra innings and drop LA to 10-26 in its last 36 home games.

MLB | Milwaukee 3 @ St. Louis 6 | 08/14 | 6:15 PM UTC

St. Louis -150


ANALYSIS: Apologies for the late post. It's hard to back Miles Mikolas after he was obliterated last time out in Colorado, but it's the right move Sunday. That one outing boosted his ERA from below 3.00 to 3.50. The Cardinals are hosting the Brewers and facing lefty Aaron Ashby, who's 2-10 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. St. Louis ranks third in the majors in OPS versus southpaws (.785). Lay the price with the Redbirds.

MLB | N.Y. Yankees 2 @ Boston 3 | 08/12 | 11:10 PM UTC

N.Y. Yankees -115


ANALYSIS: Nathan Eovaldi has struggled lately with a 4.95 ERA in his last seven starts and a lot of it is due to his velocity decrease. He is a strike thrower, and when strike throwers aren't on their game, they will miss pitches over the plate instead of off the plate and that leads to hits. The Yankees are also coming off the off-day and they are 10-5 in that spot. Domingo German struggled in his first start off the IL but he has pitched well in his three starts since. Take the Yankees at almost a pick 'em.
