    Analysis:

    They won't hit as many HRs as last night, but I bet Soto goes yard again and Judge is on a tear. We are getting value here because Cease is on the mound for the Friars ... but he's been shelled in 3 of his 4 career starts vs NYY. Stroman is good enough to give us some length and the Yankees have the superior pen. NYY have won 10 of 12 and 6 of 7 on road (since a tough series in BAL). Stroman has been brilliant in 2 career starts at Petco Park (0 ER). We like this potential payout

    Analysis:

    We jump this like yesterday, with a severe imbalance between starting pitchers. Fri the Fightins made Ty Blach look like Cy Young, but lightning doesn't strike twice and Dakota Hudson will bear the brunt of that. If he's knocked out early, Rocks pen was already taxed some yesterday. Phils hit a ton of fly balls and the altitude will result in more early HRs. This time I doubt they are solo shots. And we get Nola on our side

    Analysis:

    The Pacers are fighting for their lives at home, where they have shot 54%(!) from the field in the first half of their playoff games there. They average 64 points/half there and average Pacers home playoff game totals 116 in first half. Of course, Boston can light it up way more than the Cavs or Magic. BOS is NBA best +14 in first half on road (4 games), averaging 59 points in first 24 mins. Game 1 produced 128 in the first half and first game in new arena could see the same. Celtics have had killer instinct and Pacers don't go down easy. After Carlisle called off dogs early in Game 2 they'd best come out flying here. Celtics can match them shooting outside.

    Analysis:

    We've been backing Brady Singer quite a bit this season (along with Seth Lugo) for the Royals, who are finally hitting the ball collectively and who are starting games hot ambushing lesser arms ... like Aaron Civale. Rays pen in tatters and, even in a 1st 5 that matters, cuz Civale rarely completes 5. Rays lineup struggling with key guys injured or banished from baseball. Pathetic home crowds. Starting games slowly

    Analysis:

    Seattle is on an epic road trip and can see the flight home a day away but have another slog ahead of them here. Coming down from huge series with the O's and Yanks and facing a crafty starter who just keeps outperforming expectations. WSH is 7-2 when Trevor Williams starts, and while Nats offense gives me pause, I bet they run all over these catchers and apply pressure. Logan Gilbert's walk rate and HR rate soars on the road, and Ms struggle to score consistently as well.

    Analysis:

    Erick Fedde is shoving, especially at home. And he provides length while the O's are yo-yoing Albert Suarez back to the rotation after getting a lot of use as a leverage reliever. Pale Hose stink but are 4-1 at home when Fedder starts. He's 23rd among all starters with a 3.24 xFIP at home, he can provide length and he strong HR and hard-hit rates. O's offense held to 4 or less with regularity and attack is HR-dependent. League batting just .205 vs Fedde at home. O's pen is depleted and keep putting more arms on the IL. Very lucky not to have lost first 2 games of this series already.

    Analysis:

    The Giants lineup is finally putting it al together and they have their best starter on the mound who can overpower batters. Mets have plenty of swing and miss and playing like a team waiting for the front office to start tearing it apart selling guys via trade. Severino is feast or famine and SF has some guys who work counts and spit on garbage.

    Analysis:

    Walker is raking and he destroys left handed pitching and tonight he gets a lefty who can't get anybody out. He's driven in 11 in just 50 ABs vs lefites with an ,828 OPS and for much of the season no one was getting on around him. Already has 32 driven in. Braxton Garrett is putting over 1.5 on per inning.

    9-5 in Last 14 MIA ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    Miami is 7-15 on the road and 12 of those losses have been by 2 runs or more. Zac Gallen is pitching very well and, revenge-driven or not, is 3-0 vs the Fish with a 1.39 ERA (all have come relatively recently) Braxton Garrett is carrying an ERA over 10, Christian Walker mashes him, Gabriel Moreno is starting to break out of his sophomore slump, perhaps (at least he's getting on base again) and Ketel Marte is on fire. Wouldn't be surprised if that whacking of the Dodgers in LA starts to catapult the lagging Snakes forward, and this could be a fun weekend for them.

    Analysis:

    Love the Phillies in the altitude against a rag-armed lefty who doesn't have great stuff either. PHI could put up slow-pitch softball numbers in this series and the top of their order tends to get started quickly. This is the least of the Phils starters but still has a stout 3.31 ERA. It's hard to get a price we like given what a miss-match this is, but the first 5 eliminates any bullpen hijinks and I like Philly to start doing damage early in this series. Phillies have scored 165 runs in innings 1-5, most in MLB

    Analysis:

    We are going back to a similar bet from Game 1. In this case we will lay the points. Mavs have been largely slow starters and are playing with a bit of house money. ANT had a down scoring game and didn't look for his shot enough, and I expect that changes here. Wolves had a pointed film session with the coaching staff and I expect them to be the better team again in opening 24 mins. Will Kyrie try to take over early two games in a row? We will see a highly motivated home team from the opening jump. Mavs have lost first half by nearly 2 points on average but are facing their best opponent here.

    Analysis:

    Burnes was leaning a lot on the world-class cutter and his slider this season - and his K stats were down, hence this total - but he started throwing the curveball early in counts last time out and toyed with the Mariners. This is a proven 200 K guy and I could see him logging 10+ vs a Pale Hose lineup with plenty of swing and miss. O's pen is a mess and they need Burnes to start going 100+ pitches. Finally gave him some run support last time and he shoved. CHI 23% K rate healthy enough for him to go over this
