St. Louis 4 @ Cleveland 2 | 07/27 | 11:10 PM UTC

Cleveland +101

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Cal Quantrill (2-2, 3.84 ERA) will look to continue his strong pitching when he takes the mound on Tuesday. Quantrill owns a 2-0 record with a 3.22 ERA in four starts in July after allowing one run on four hits in six innings of a no-decision versus Tampa Bay on Thursday. Adam Wainwright has an 5.35 ERA on the road this season. The Cardinals are 2-5 against the AL and 5-10 when playing after a day off this season. Take the home team.

Chi. White Sox 1 @ Milwaukee 7 | 07/24 | 12:10 AM UTC

Milwaukee -125

WIN

ANALYSIS: Milwaukee has lost a season-high five straight home games and is looking to bounce back after dropping back-to-back games against Kansas City before Thursday's off day. The Brewers will turn to Freddy Peralta (7-3, 2.39 ERA), who is making his first start since July 10. His ERA at home is 2.04 while holding hitters to a .109 batting average. Lucas Giolito is coming off a complete game gem and hasn't pitch great in starts after complete games. His ERA is 4.98 on the road this season. I like the Brewers in this one.

Texas @ Detroit 14 | 07/19 | 11:10 PM UTC

Detroit -105

WIN

ANALYSIS: Detroit RHP Casey Mize hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last 13 starts. The Rangers will counter with RHP Kyle Gibson. The All-Star has faced the Tigers 24 times in his career, going 10-10 with a 5.51 ERA. Texas has lost five in a row and was shut out in both games of Sunday's doubleheader at Toronto. I like the home team in this spot.

Phoenix 100 @ Milwaukee 120 | 07/12 | 12:00 AM UTC

Milwaukee -4

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Bucks return home after allowing 118 points in both games at Phoenix. The Bucks are 3-0 straight-up in Game 3s this postseason. Role players perform better at home, and I expect the Bucks to play much better defense after reviewing the tape. The Bucks are 10-5 straight-up when playing with two days of rest while the Suns are 5-3 straight-up. Milwaukee has more experience playing with two days off. The Bucks are 33-11 straight-up at home. Take the hungry host.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 PHO ATS PICKS

Philadelphia 3 @ Chi. Cubs 8 | 07/08 | 12:05 AM UTC

Chi. Cubs +120

WIN

ANALYSIS: Chicago has dropped 11 straight games since throwing a combined no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Phillies have smacked around the Cubs in the first two games of this series, outscoring them by a combined 28-13. Philadelphia is 14-26 after a victory this season. I think Chicago will find a way to win this game and stop the bleeding.
