MLB | St. Louis 9 @ Colorado 5 | 08/11 | 12:40 AM UTC

Colorado +135

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Cardinals had a seven-game win streak until they entered Coors Field on Tuesday and got hammered for 12 runs in the first three innings of a 15-6 loss. The Rockies got 22 hits. Three of the hottest MLB hitters are Rockies with Brendan Rodgers, Jose Iglesias. and Randal Grichuk all having 19 or more hits in the last 14 days. The wind is blowing out at 10 mph at Coors. Jose Quintana has been solid for the Cardinals but gave up six runs on his last visit to Denver on July 15. Take the Rockies to win a high-scoring game.

MLB | Tampa Bay 3 @ Milwaukee 5 | 08/10 | 12:10 AM UTC

Tampa Bay +140

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Rays will be starting a reliever, while the Brewers still are trying to break out of the funk that has dropped them out of first place in the NL Central. Milwaukee RHP Freddy Peralta didn’t look so hot in his comeback start six days ago at Pittsburgh, an 8-7 defeat. The Brewers have lost six of their last seven, while the Rays have won four of their last five. Take Tampa Bay to win.

MLB | Texas 5 @ Houston 7 | 08/10 | 12:10 AM UTC

Texas +158

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The last time Martin Perez faced Houston he threw a complete game shutout on May 20, winning 3-0. The Rangers are 12 games below .500 but have gone 16-6 behind Perez this season while he’s posted a 2.47 ERA. The Astros had a day off after their lineup was shut down on Saturday and Sunday at Cleveland, scoring only one run combined. Texas to win.

+547 29-26 IN LAST 55 HOU ML PICKS

MLB | Houston 0 @ Cleveland 1 | 08/07 | 4:05 PM UTC

Cleveland +118

WIN

ANALYSIS: Cleveland designated Franmil Reyes, who hit 30 homers last season, for assignment Saturday and immediately responded with a 4-1 win. The message is, If you’re not playing well, maybe you’re next to go. The Astros have lost four of RHP Cristian Javier’s last five starts and are only 8-8 behind him this season. I look for Cleveland RHP Triston McKenzie to be the star of this game. The Guardians are 5-2 behind him at home and 12-7 overall. Cleveland is only two games back in the AL Central. Take the Guardians to win.

MLB | Atlanta 2 @ N.Y. Mets 5 | 08/07 | 8:10 PM UTC

N.Y. Mets -145

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Mets can increase their lead in the NL East to 6 1/2 games. Taking four of five from Atlanta in this series would send a major message. New York RHP Jacob deGrom will be strong for five or six innings. Braves RHP Spencer Strider is solid, but I’ve seen him allow five or more runs three times, and Atlanta is only 7-5 behind him. Seize the moment. The Mets look sharp, take them to win.
