Blue Jays at Yankees (-170), 1:00 EST 

Gerrit Cole has been lights out all season. Unlike Max Scherzer, he gave up the sticky stuff and recovered. I’m riding this horse into the barn. Yankees with Cole at home is too good to pass up at -170. 

Pick: Yankees -170 

White Sox at Rays -190, 4:05 EST 

Look, the White Sox suck right now. Their bullpen is a dumpster fire. They blew a 2-run lead in the ninth last night. This team is reeling. Meanwhile the Rays are rolling and relentless.  

Pick: Rays -190 

Mets (+115) at Giants, 4:05 EST

I’m betting against Webb (0-4) and the Giants every day until they start hitting. You have to score runs to win games. The Mets are hot and S.F. is floundering. Until the Giants score at least four runs in two straight games I am fading them.  

Pick: Mets (+115)  

Boston at Brewers (-125), 7:10 EST  

Wade Miley rights the ship tonight for the Brew-Crew. Boston modest winning streak crashes tonight in Wisconsin. Miley is the stopper Milwaukee  

Pick: Brewers -125  

Cards at Mariners (-160), 9:40 EST

Mike Mikolas continues to be a work in progress for St. Louis. He is showing signs of decline, sporting an 8.10 ERA while allowing 1.8 homers per nine innings. Meanwhile Luis Castillo has been a beast with a .074 ERA and 26 K’s in 24 innings and a .061 WHIP. 

Pick: Seattle (-160) 

Good Luck!
