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.

Tampa Bay 10 @ Cleveland 5 | 07/23 | 11:10 PM UTC

Tampa Bay -121

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Indians really need to take advantage of quality starts and squandered one Thursday, using up all their key bullpen members in the process. That puts Cleveland in a tough spot here as its starter tonight, Zach Plesac, is unlikely to be able to work deep into the game. Tampa Bay was victorious in Thursday's series opener, 5-4, in 10 innings. The Rays are 11-0 since Sept. 19, 2020, past the first game of a series coming off a one-run win as a favorite of less than -230.

Oakland 4 @ Seattle 1 | 07/23 | 2:10 AM UTC

Oakland -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: Already the better team, Oakland has a nice advantage here having been off Wednesday while Seattle played in Colorado and had to go to its bullpen early. Look for that rest to help the A's, who turn to Sean Manaea. The Athletics defeated Cleveland in his last start, and Manaea pitched a complete-game shutout in his lone start against Seattle this season. The A's are 10-0 since July 22, 2018, when the lefty starts as a favorite and when they won both his last start and his last start against the current opponent.

N.Y. Mets 7 @ Cincinnati | 07/21 | 4:35 PM UTC

OVER 10.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Both teams have been hitting the ball well in this series. Although Tuesday's hits did not turn that into a high-scoring game, it still took a toll on the pitching staffs. With neither team having a dominant starter going Wednesday, this sets up as another high-scoring game. Cincinnati turns to Jeff Hoffman as its starter and the Reds are 8-1 OU since April 4 when he starts. What's more, afternoon games in which Jerry Meals is the home plate umpire are 96-61-13 OU.
