Zack's Past Picks

Toronto 13 @ Boston 1 | 07/29 | 11:10 PM UTC

Toronto +110


ANALYSIS: Toronto LHP Hyun Jin Ryu will aim to bounce back from his third-shortest outing of the season (4 1/3 innings against the New York Mets on Saturday). The 10 hits Ryu he allowed were a season high. But the Blue Jays won that start, and Ryu’s last three overall. Ryu also has been effective against the Red Sox this year, as he worked seven scoreless innings en route to a victory on May 18. Take the underdog Blue Jays.

L.A. Dodgers 8 @ San Francisco | 07/29 | 1:45 AM UTC

L.A. Dodgers -125


ANALYSIS: The Dodgers dropped another game to the Giants on Tuesday. It was the fourth times in five games that the Giants have defeated the Dodgers in a little more than a week. Yet, look for the Dodgers to snap out of their mini funk at the plate against Anthony DeSclafani, whose worst start this season came on May 23 against L.A., in which he allowed nine hits and 10 runs in 2.2 innings. Grab the Dodgers.

Atlanta 1 @ N.Y. Mets 2 | 07/28 | 11:10 PM UTC

Atlanta +115


ANALYSIS: With a win on Wednesday the Braves would be back at .500 (51-51). The last time the Braves faced the Mets with Max Fried on the mound, Atlanta ended up having its most lopsided victory of the season, 20-2. Take Atlanta as this is the third time pitcher Tylor Megill has seen the Braves in his seven starts.

+1086 31-20 IN LAST 51 ATL ML PICKS

N.Y. Yankees 3 @ Tampa Bay 1 | 07/28 | 11:10 PM UTC

N.Y. Yankees +115


ANALYSIS: Nestor Cortes will be on the mound for the Yankees, who won both of his prior starts (July 4 and July 9). Meanwhile Michael Wacha has surrendered eight earned runs his last four starts. Take the underdog Yankees.

+1584 79-61 IN LAST 140 MLB PICKS
+1411 31-17 IN LAST 48 NYY ML PICKS
+315 3-0 IN LAST 3 TB ML PICKS

Oakland 4 @ San Diego 7 | 07/28 | 2:10 AM UTC

Oakland +143


ANALYSIS: Over Oakland’s last 30 games the A's are just 12-18. Monday’s day off was a chance for them to refocus. Though the Padres have played well at home (33-19), pitcher Chris Paddack has been a weak link; his home ERA is 6.94. I expect the A's to pounce on Paddack and hold on. Grab Oakland.
