Thu 8/15

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha has been shaky of late and was dreadful in his last outing, allowing six runs on seven hits while failing to get out of the fourth inning. But he has won seven straight decisions at Great American Ball Park, where the Reds appeared mired in a major slide and enter Thursday on a four-game losing streak. Cincinnati starter Sonny Gray also lost his previous start against the Cardinals this year. Take advantage of the situational value on St. Louis.

Wed 8/14

This game should have a playoff-type atmosphere as the Phillies look to stay in the wild-card race and the Cubs attempt to break out of a funk away from home that has seen them fail to win a road series since the All-Star break. Chicago has played Under 7-1 in the past eight starts by Cole Hamels and four straight when he faces winning teams. The Phillies are 3-0-1 to the Under when Aaron Nola pitches on full rest. Look for a low-scoring affair Wednesday.

Tue 8/13

The Mets have done a stunning about-face to turn a disastrous season into one in which they are contending for a playoff berth. They have won 15 of 17 and visit Atlanta to start an important series Tuesday with the NL East-leading Braves. New York's current form has led to a discount on Atlanta and 13-game winner Max Fried, who has a 2.49 ERA in four career starts against the Mets. New York's Zack Wheeler has a 4.50 ERA in a pair of starts against the Braves this year.

Mon 8/12

The Blue Jays could be in for a bit of a down spot Monday following a strong series against the Yankees in which they won two of four and came just short of a series win because of a 1-0 loss Sunday. This is still a team that is 23 games below .500 facing a Rangers club that is still clinging to wild-card contention. Neither pitcher inspires fear, but Rangers starter Ariel Jurado is a respectable 4-3 with a 4.10 ERA on the road. Toronto's Neil Ramirez has a 10.80 lifetime ERA against the Rangers.
