Pick One: Milwaukee Brewers -1.5 (-115) at the St. Louis Cardinals
The Brewers have a big pitching edge as their starter Brandon Woodruff has a 2.18 ERA compared to Jon Lester of the Cardinals’ 5.32 ERA. The two teams are close in batting average, Cardinals .237 to Brewers .234, but the Brewers lead in on-base percentage, .319 to .309, in slugging percentage, .401 to .391, and in on-base plus slugging percentage, .720 to .700. Against the spread, the Brewers are also better as they are 68-52 while St. Louis is 61-57.
Pick Two: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (+105) vs the New York Mets
As of now the Dodgers starter for tonight has yet to be determined but their team ERA is 3.06. LA has the batting edge across the board leading in batting average, .247 to .235, in on-base percentage, .336 to .312, in slugging percentage, .429 to .380, and in on-base plus slugging percentage, .765 to .693. The Dodgers are hot right now riding a six-game winning streak and expect that to continue tonight.
Pick Three: Under 10.5 (-115) in New York Yankees vs the Minnesota Twins
The first thing to point out is 10.5 is a big line, to begin with. Second, the Twins in their last five have seen three score less than 10 runs and in the Yankees’ last five none have crossed 10 runs. Go against the big line and take the under.
