N.Y. Yankees @ Tampa Bay 14 | 07/29 | 5:10 PM UTC

UNDER 7.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: New York RHP Gerrit Cole has absolutely regained his form after a rough patch. Cole has registered 31 strikeouts in 20 innings over his last three starts against the strong offenses of Houston and Boston. Look for Cole to control this game and keep it low-scoring. Tampa Bay is 2-1 against Cole and defeated the Yankees the last time they faced him in June. The Rays are 0-9 OU (-3.89 ppg) since Oct. 8, 2020 as underdogs when they defeated the opposing starting pitcher in the last same-season meeting.

Milwaukee 7 @ Pittsburgh 3 | 07/28 | 11:05 PM UTC

Milwaukee -140

WIN

ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh didn't put up any fight in the series opener and now will face Brewers RHP Adrian Houser, who has helped bring significant success to the team of late. Milwaukee rolled to a 9-0 victory on Tuesday and is 8-0 since June 8, 2019 in the second game of a series following a win by at least five runs as a favorite. Pittsburgh's offense was unable to get going even as that contest went on. The Pirates are 0-13 since May 23 after a game as underdogs in which they did not score after the third inning.

Colorado 2 @ L.A. Angels 6 | 07/27 | 1:38 AM UTC

L.A. Angels -157

WIN

ANALYSIS: Coming out of the All-Star break, Angels RHP Shohei Ohtani looked extremely sharp on the mound and he should benefit from extra rest again. This is an opportunity for Ohtani to start as a solid home favorite, a spot in which he has shined. The Angels are 7-0 since May 13, 2018 when Ohtani starts as a home favorite of at least -125. Colorado has lost back-to-back games, both by one run to the Dodgers. The Rockies are 0-14 SU since August 12, 2011 as underdogs of at least +130 when they are coming off two straight one-run losses.

Toronto 10 @ N.Y. Mets 3 | 07/24 | 11:10 PM UTC

OVER 8.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: With the quality of today’s two starting pitchers, this is a high total that has value. While Taijuan Walker really struggled in his last start, that is likely a one-off that he can rebound from while well rested today. Walker goes having worked just one-third of an inning in his last start, against Pittsburgh. Each of his eight prior starts went at least five innings. Starters who went more than 3.5 innings less in their last start than in any of their previous three starts have games go Under 55.4 percent of the time.

+190 3-1 IN LAST 4 NYM O/U PICKS

Texas 3 @ Houston 7 | 07/24 | 12:10 AM UTC

Texas +183

LOSS

ANALYSIS: While the Rangers are struggling to get a win, they have remained competitive in recent games. Look for Texas to be invested in snapping its losing streak tonight facing a starting pitcher the Rangers have an opportunity to get to for several runs (Jake Odorizzi). Houston is coming off a 5-4 loss to Cleveland on Wednesday and had just six hits in the loss. The Astros are 0-5 since June 3 at home coming off a game as a favorite in which they had six or fewer hits.
