Bob's Past Picks

MLB | Houston 21 @ Chi. White Sox 5 | 08/18 | 6:10 PM UTC

Houston -130


ANALYSIS: The Houston Astros have their A lineup out today. They face the White Sox Lucas Giolito with a 4-4 record and 5.86 ERA at home this season. His last two home starts have been decent but they were against the Tigers and Royals where he still gave up a total of six earned runs. The White Sox are a bottom 10 team in OPS with a .684 against righties. The Astros have seen some regression post All-Star break but are still a top 10 team in OPS this season with a .730. Luis Garcia has been a little shaky on the road of recent, giving up eight earned runs in his last two starts. But, he finds himself a favorable matchup against this White Sox lineup. Take the Astros.

MLB | L.A. Dodgers 3 @ Milwaukee 5 | 08/18 | 6:10 PM UTC



ANALYSIS: Two of their first three games have gone under. This season, Milwaukee's Corbin Burnes is 4-3 with a 2.82 ERA at home while the LA Dodgers Andrew Heaney is 0-0 with a 2.38 ERA on the road. Over the last seven days, the Brewers are last in the league in OPS with a .494 and in team batting average with .158. They also have the second-worst batting average against lefties this season with a .218. Mookie Betts also gets the day off for the Dodgers. Play the Under.

MLB | Arizona 5 @ San Francisco 0 | 08/18 | 7:45 PM UTC

San Francisco -145


ANALYSIS: The Giants Logan Webb is 8-3 with a 2.71 ERA at home this season. He's also 3-0 in his career at home against Arizona. Over the last seven days, the Giants bats are second in the league in OPS with a .808. They're batting .249 as a team with a .472 in slugging. Arizona's Zac Gallen is 1-4 with a 4.70 ERA in his career against the Giants. The Diamondbacks are also 0-5 in their last five games when Gallen starts in San Francisco. Arizona is also 6-21 in their last 27 games in the Bay Area. Play the Giants to win.

MLB | Kansas City 0 @ Minnesota 4 | 08/17 | 5:10 PM UTC



ANALYSIS: The Under is 3-0-1 when the Twins face a leftie. KC's Daniel Lynch is looking to build off his five-inning shutout against the LA Dodgers last week. KC is a bottom six team in runs per game this season averaging 3.89 and have averaged two runs per contest over their last three games. The Twins Tyler Mahle had a solid outing last game tossing six scoreless innings, but that was against the struggling Angels. Some possible regression from the Twins bats after putting up nine runs last night. Play the Under eight (-120).

MLB | L.A. Dodgers 4 @ Milwaukee 5 | 08/17 | 12:10 AM UTC

Milwaukee -120


ANALYSIS: The Brewers trail the Cardinals by two games in NL Central and need wins. Brian Woodruff is 5-0 at home this season with a 2.38 ERA. He's allowed two or fewer runs in 10 of his 17 starts. The Brewers have put up four runs or more in each of their last five games when Woodruff starts. Ryan Pepiot makes his sixth career start and is 1-0 with a 3.92 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. In his last start, Pepiot allowed four runs off five hits in 4 1/3. However, I'm backing the more experienced pitcher at home to slow down this Dodgers lineup. Play the Brewers to win (-120).
