Zack's Past Picks

MLB | Tampa Bay 7 @ N.Y. Yankees 8 | 08/17 | 11:05 PM UTC

Tampa Bay +118


ANALYSIS: The Rays are in position Wednesday for their fifth straight win against the slumping Yankees. New York has struggled with just one run in the past two games against Tampa Bay. Veteran Rays pitcher Corey Kluber may be coming off a poor outing, but has had success in two starts this season against the Yankees. He’s totaled twelve innings and allowed just two runs to his former team. Back the Rays to drop the Yankees once again.

MLB | Seattle 6 @ L.A. Angels 2 | 08/16 | 1:38 AM UTC

L.A. Angels -110


ANALYSIS: In Luis Castillo’s first two starts as a Mariner, he delivered masterful pitching that helped defeat the Yankees. It’s a different dichotomy for Castillo on Monday against the subpar Angels. With Seattle on a current two-game road losing streak, look for a low-scoring game. Play the Angels as the Mariners lose their third straight.

MLB | Minnesota 3 @ L.A. Angels 5 | 08/14 | 1:07 AM UTC

Minnesota -113


ANALYSIS: Veteran pitcher Dylan Bundy’s road ERA over 6.00 raises caution about backing Minnesota. But Bundy should be in a favorable spot tonight, considering the Angels had just four hits in a shutout loss Friday. Expect Bundy to work out of jams and survive five innings as the Twins get another road win.

MLB | Milwaukee 3 @ St. Louis 2 | 08/13 | 11:15 PM UTC

Milwaukee -143


ANALYSIS: Expect the Brewers to challenge the Cardinals' stout home record (36-20) tonight. Milwaukee starter Corbin Burnes has gone seven innings in both of his starts against St. Louis this year. He allowed two hits in each while striking out at least 10 as the Brewers won with shutouts. Take Milwaukee.

MLB | Chi. Cubs 7 @ Cincinnati 2 | 08/13 | 10:40 PM UTC

Cincinnati -122


ANALYSIS: Throughout the second half of the season, the Cubs have been a true pendulum team. They are 5-2 over their last seven games, including a big win over the Reds in Thursday’s Field of Dreams Game. They did that with pitching that held opponents to three runs or fewer in six of the seven games. Today, look for the Reds to be aggressive and get the necessary run production to cash. Take the Reds.
