    Analysis:

    The Mariners continue to struggle to score with any regularity. and I especially don't fancy their chances to do much against Nathan Eovaldi. He's in dominant form and has owned pretty much every M's batter who matters - Julio Rodriquez, Mitch Haniger, Cal Raleigh, JP Crawford. As middling as the Rangers have been, they have won 4 of Eovaldi's last 5 starts, most convincingly. In a battle of two excellent starters, I'm backing the team with the potential for more thump.

    7-2 in Last 9 NYY ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    We keep riding Yanks RL on the road. As we placed this bet, NYY were on their way to going a 14th road in by 2 runs or more in an 18-game span. And the BoSox were on their way to going 11-25 ATS at home. Better park for the Yanks. Yanks have the better starter and the better lineup. In Carlos Rodon's last 9 starts the Yanks are 8-1, all wins by 2 runs or more.

    Analysis:

    The Braves offense has major issues; only MIA and COL swing at more pitches than the Bravos; only 4 teams swing and miss more than ATL. Ryan Pepiot may have the best 4-season fastball in MLB (.126 avg), he is in 88th % in whiff rate and XBA. He can shut Braves down. Charlie Morton has allowed 16 ER and 29 H in last 5 starts (24 2/3 IP). ATL too reliant on Marcell Ozuna. Banking on TB scratching out a few runs for their emerging ace starter.

    Analysis:

    Gunnar Henderson vs a bad RH pitcher with him team in a bit of a slump looks great to me. Should be back in his comfortable leadoff spot today. Taijuan Walker stinks and gives up a ton of fly balls and 28 HR since start of last season. Gunnar is due to run into one. Henderson leads MLB (by far) with 35% of all flyballs he hits at home going for a tater. Next closest is Ohtani at 29%. O's due to break out of offensive rut

    12-7 in Last 19 PHI ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    The O's faced NL CY Young favorites Reynaldo Lopez and Ranger Suarez within 18 hours. But I don't see them losing a third straight at home here vs the weak link in the Phillies rotation. Phillies have only played 13 games vs teams .500 or better, fewest in MLB. O's are battled tested. Phils without 3 of best hitters, and fulltime catcher. Grayson Rodriguez has 2.12 ERA at home and 1.88 in day games. BAL has hit 17 more HR in day games than any MLB team and OPS is 30 points better than any team in day games. BAL 6-3 ATS last 9 day games. Gunnar Henderson will tag Taijuan Walker early. Walker has allowed 28 HRs since start of '23

    34-32 in Last 66 MLB Picks
    Analysis:

    The Guardians starter is not good, but when he gets a quick hook and is treated almost like an opener, better things happen. The Jays have not officially announced a starter as I place this, and whomever it is will be suboptimal. CLE is 23-16 on road (only NYY have more away wins) and CLE is 17-7 in day games. TOR well below .500 vs teams .500 or better. Jays having major pen issues besides Yimmi Garcia, who can only do so much. Jays drowning amid DFAs and rumblings of a pre-deadline sell-off. Guardians playing much better ball. Jays are only 16-16 at home. I like the value here.

    51-49 in Last 100 MLB ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    Padres are playing good ball, winning 5 of their last 6. Mets remain on the struggle bus. Matt Waldron's knuckleball looks more refined with each start and SD is 4-1 in his last 5 outings, winning all by multiple runs. Pressing Mets will probably chase. Friars are 22-10 ATS on road, tied with O's for best in ball. Mets 26th on RL at home (13-24). Like the splits key Padres like Manny Machado and Luis Arraez have vs Sean Manaea, whose last 3 starts have been pretty shaky.

    7-2 in Last 9 NYY ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    I don't price this as a rivalry game, because the Yankees are in a different class, and they have their top starter on the bump tonight. Fenway Park will play just fine for the Yanks bats. NY has 25 wins on the RL on the road this season, tied for most in MLB. Brayan Bello has been Sox most erratic starter, and he's been getting tagged lately. Yanks have far superior lineup and bullpen. Most Yankees games are not close.

    12-7 in Last 19 MIA ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    Miami was blown out again Wed night, and now their last 8 losses are all by 2 runs or more. And in 6 of those 8 losses the margin has been 4 runs or more. They tend to be streaky and usually it's to the wrong side of the ledger. Roddery Munoz has not been very good for them and isn't showing many signs of a turnaround based off his limited sample size. Mets battling lately and Lus Severino is capable of a gem against a bad Marlins lineup. Miami got to him last month but I am banking on us getting a better version of Severino tonight

    34-32 in Last 66 MLB Picks
    Analysis:

    Tampa is 7-14 in its last 21 games and the Rays are currently the worst ATS team in MLB based on win %. During this 21-game funk they have been held to 4 runs or less 15 times and 2 runs or less 9 times. Taj Brdley is an erratic young starter with ace potential but who has twice had to navigate the O's lineup recently and that can take a toll. The Cubs always give me a little pause but Justin Steele starting to show signs he is getting it back together. Outside of Isaac Paredes no one in that Rays lineup gives you much trouble these days. Cubbies a solid 18-13 at home

    8-2 in Last 10 KC ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    This series has looked like the men vs the boys. Every Yankees series the last 8 weeks or so, outside of their venture to Camden Yards and them hosting the Dodgers, has looked like the men vs the boys. Royals starters and pen have been ravaged by Yanks in first 3 games. NYY showing no signs of slowing down and they just went without Judge and Soto so banking on this being a fairly strong lineup. Yanks on a 7-0 ATS run on road and 13-3 ATS tear in last 16 road games. Nestor Cortes has been pretty nasty overall. Alex Marsh hasn't been providing the kind of length the Royals are likely to need to keep the underbelly of their pen from getting whacked.
