The Rockies are crushing left handed pitching right now and in two games against the Rockies Nick Margevicius has given up 10 runs in nine innings. Peter Lambert is 2-0 with a 1.5 ERA this season and the Rockies are 18-7 as the home favorite. Lay the favorite.

Trevor Bauer has been underwhelming this season with a 3.71 ERA and Spencer Turnbull has been very good with a 2.78 ERA. But this Tigers team is the second worst in the league at scoring runs, and Miguel Cabrera?s out. I like the Indians to outscore the Tigers today despite the pitching matchup.

Glenn Sparkman is 1-2 with a 3.58 ERA this season including an 8.22 ERA in four appearances (one start) on the road. Jake Odorizzi is 9-2 with a 1.92 ERA this season and he has a .76 ERA in his last eight starts. The Twins are 10-3 when Odorizzi starts and the Royals are 1-3 when Sparkman starts. The Twins are 30-9 as the favorite while the Royals are 16-41 as the underdog. -127 is good value.

Clayton Richard will be making his fifth start of the year and he?s 0-2 with a 7.04 ERA in his first four. Framber Valdez is 2-2 with a 2.73 ERA this season and in his only start he gave up one run in seven innings. Houston has the third highest OPS in the league against lefties while the Blue Jays have the fifth worst. Vladdy will most likely be out of the lineup after being hit by a pitch in the hand yesterday, and the Astros are 24-9 as the home favorite. -115 is good value.
