Max's Past Picks
ALL

Houston 1 @ Boston 5 | 05/18 | 10:10 PM UTC

Houston -135

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Fading Nick Pivetta in this spot. Pivetta has been terrible to start this season, including a 6.75 home ERA. The Astros are red hot winning 13 of their last 15 games. Astros starter Luis Garcia has dominant against this Red Sox lineup. The Astros should stay hot in this spot against a struggling pitcher.

San Francisco 7 @ Colorado 6 | 05/17 | 12:40 AM UTC

Colorado 130

LOSS

ANALYSIS: This Rockies lineup has a lot of experience and success against Giants starter Alex Wood. The Rockies are a very good home team as they have a 12-7 record at Coors Field. With this field being the most hitter friendly field in the league, the Rockies will be able to put up a bunch of runs on a familiar opponent. Rockies starter Antonio Senzatela has been great at home as he has a 2.37 home ERA. At +130, I love the value on the Rockies.

L.A. Angels 4 @ Texas 7 | 05/17 | 12:05 AM UTC

L.A. Angels -145

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Angels are a great team. They are 9-3 in their last 12 games and now they have Noah Syndergaard on the mound who has only allowed eight runs in five starts. Rangers starter Jon Gray has only pitched in road games this season. He has a 5.51 ERA and that should only increase in this game. The Angels batters should have no problem putting up runs in this game. Take the Angels.

Kansas City 8 @ Colorado 7 | 05/15 | 7:10 PM UTC

OVER 11

WIN

ANALYSIS: This series has had 38 runs over the first two games. The Rockies scored 10 runs in both games and are poised to do it again today against Royals started Daniel Lynch. The Royals should be able to put up some runs against the Rockies pitching. At Coors Field, 11 runs is not that many. Expect this game to easily go over the total.

Kansas City 8 @ Colorado 7 | 05/15 | 7:10 PM UTC

Colorado -1.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Rockies offense is rolling scoring 10 runs in both games this series. Royals starter Daniel Lynch has struggled on the road with a 4.91 road ERA. The Rockies should dominate him early and cruise to an easy win. Laying the extra run at +125.
