Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks +122 (Rocky Sheridan)
Arizona has dominated this series winning 7 of their last 8 meetings. The last time these 2 pitchers faced off against each other, Pelrey was sent to the showers after an inning and a third giving up 6 earned off 7 hits and 2 walks. Pelfrey has also been struggling of last with a 10.45 ERA and a staggering 3.10 WHIP. Kennedy may keep things interesting but I like a small play on the D-Backs here to bounce back from their 6 game skid.
Pick: New York Yankees -104 (Jimmy Boyd)
While Davis has pitched better in recent starts, it can’t be overlooked that those starts came against Cleveland twice and Baltimore once. The Yankees have the edge on the mound with Hughes. They have won 14 of his 18 starts this season, and he is a fantastic 5-1 with an ERA of only 2.36 on the road this year. Compare that to Davis, who is 4-6 with an ERA of 4.22 at home. It is also worth noting that the Rays are only 1-5 in Davis’ last 6 starts vs. a team with a winning record. Meanwhile, the Yankees are 6-0 in Hughes’ last 6 road starts vs. a team with a winning record and 5-0 in his last 5 starts vs. the American League East. The Yanks have taken 2 of 3 in Tampa this season, and they are 26-18 against the Rays over the last 3 seasons. Take the Yankees.
Pick: Houston Astros +100 (Rocky Atkinson)
Milwaukee is 2-8 this year after allowing 10 runs or more. Houston has won 3 of their last 4 games overall. Milwaukee bullpen has a 5.10 ERA overall this year. Manny Parra is 3-7 with a 5.33 ERA overall this year, 2-4 with a 6.00 ERA in all starts, 1-2 with a 6.84 ERA on the road and 0-2 with an 8.82 ERA his last 3 starts. JA Happ is 1-0 with a 1.76 ERA overall this year, 2.61 ERA at home this season and 1-0 with a 1.76 ERA his last 3 starts. Parra has a 5.18 ERA overall vs Houston since 1997 while Happ is 1-0 with a 3.17 ERA overall vs Milwaukee since 1997. We’ll recommend a small play on Houston tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky
