White Sox starter Lucas Giolito has come on strong of late, with a 3-0 mark and 0.93 ERA in his previous there starts. He has a 2.57 ERA in two starts at Houston despite going 0-2 in those outings. Astros rookie Corbin Martin has give up four earned runs across his first two MLB starts while picking up a win and a no-decision. Look for the starting pitching to dictate a low-scoring game that stays Under the posted total Thursday.

The Diamondbacks are offered at a lucrative price for sweep aversion Wednesday against the Padres. San Diego has won the first two meetings of the series behind two-run homers that provided the difference in one-run games. But the spot value in the final is on Arizona, which already has beat up San Diego starter Eric Lauer twice this season. Lauer is 0-2 this season against the Diamondbacks, giving up seven runs on 17 hits in 10 innings for an ERA of 6.30. Arizona starter Merrill Kelly is 1-0 in two starts against San Diego this season.

The Rockies have had some bad luck on their current road trip with a handful of close losses while also facing Chris Sale of Boston and Aaron Nola of Philadelphia. They have dropped four straight before heading Tuesday to face Pittsburgh, which is coming off a 7-4 road trip. But Pirates starter Chris Archer (1-3, 5.58_ has been ailing and inconsistent. He was roughed up against Arizona in his first start off the injured list. The Rockies should have a prime opportunity Tuesday to get their bats going and the thin price provides more incentive.

Mon 5/20

we are missing the best of this number, but there is still is some value on Portland in a six-point shift from the Game 3 spread. The Blazers received a ton of wagering support in their home series debut Saturday, only to blow a double-figure lead and put the Warriors on the brink of another NBA Finals appearance. Now there seems to be a lot of sentiment for the sweep and, although Portland has shown its limitations, it should find a way to at least extend the series back to Oakland in a natural letdown spot for the Warriors.

Fri 5/17

Both teams come in hot for this rematch of last year's American League Championship Series. Some Astros have openly spoken of their desire for some measure of revenge, but the value Friday is on the home underdog. The Red Sox have won five straight starts behind Rick Porcello and have won six straight against AL West opponents. Houston starter Gerrit Cole has won three straight decisions but he has struggled against some of the better-hitting lineups on the road in the American League.
