N.Y. Yankees @ Philadelphia 7 | 06/13 | 5:05 PM UTC

Philadelphia -125

WIN

ANALYSIS: New York’s relievers continue to struggle and RHP Domingo German has not been working deep into games, which would be needed to save that bullpen. He has not made it through the sixth inning in any of his last three outings. The Yankees are not underdogs often, but in this case, it is very warranted. New York has been favored in each of its nine games prior to Sunday. Teams that are underdogs after having not been such in any of their previous nine games are 416-612 (+4.7 percent playing against).

Colorado 3 @ Cincinnati 10 | 06/12 | 8:10 PM UTC

Cincinnati -130

WIN

ANALYSIS: Colorado’s road struggles continue, as has its pitching woes the past two games. German Marquez has been the same, getting good results at home but not on the road. Look for more of the same today. Marquez is starting on the road after a 3-1 win as a home favorite against Oakland in his last start. The Rockies are 0-12 since Aug. 3, 2018, when Marquez starts on the road when they won as a home favorite in his last start.

L.A. Angels 8 @ Arizona 7 | 06/12 | 8:10 PM UTC

Arizona +105

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Arizona has managed to lose eight straight games without getting blown out in any of those games. The Diamondbacks staying competitive is a good sign of them breaking out of this slump. L.A. never trailed in a 6-5 extra inning win in the series opener yesterday. The Angels are 0-9 since April 27, 2019, past the first game of a series as a road favorite when they never trailed in the last game. Also, the Diamondbacks are 8-1 since July 19, 2019, in the second game of a series as a home dog when they never led last game.

San Diego 2 @ N.Y. Mets 3 | 06/11 | 11:10 PM UTC

N.Y. Mets -160

WIN

ANALYSIS: While Blake Snell has name recognition, he has struggled considerably with walks this season. As such, this is a huge pitching edge that is worthwhile to take, even with this line. Snell has particularly struggled away from home this season as the Padres are 0-6 since April 13 when Snell starts on the road. This game is a huge line shift for San Diego after the Padres were -210 favorites in a home loss to the Cubs Wednesday. Teams that are at least +150 underdogs after being favored by at least -170 last game are 65-156.

L.A. Clippers 111 @ Utah 117 | 06/11 | 2:00 AM UTC

Utah -3

WIN

ANALYSIS: Utah did not shoot particularly well in Game 1 and still controlled the contest down the stretch. Look for the Jazz to display the energy they had in that second half earlier on Thursday. Neither team played all that fast in the series opener, with the Clippers having just four fast-break points and the Jazz only two. Los Angeles is 0-6 ATS (-12.75 ppg) following a road game in which it scored fewer than 10 fast-break points. Meanwhile, Utah is 9-0 ATS (8.67 ppg) after a home contest in which it recorded fewer than 10.
