Yankees -2.5 +130
Kuroda has pitched well early in the season, combined with a 1.61 ERA against Houston. Humber of the other hand has given up 15 runs over his last 5 innings combined with allowing a .500 (26 for 52) batting average to opposing lefties. I'm an Astros fan, but I can't see them keeping this one close.
Detroit -1.5 -130
Verlander is 7-1 against the Twins over the last 3 season with a sub 2 ERA. Worley has struggled and Detroit has been hot. I expect it to continue.
Boston ML -120
Lester has put up good numbers so far this season, but Toronto has hit lefties terribly early on this year with a 1-4 record against them. Also, Morrow has atrocious numbers against Boston with a 1-3 record and ERA over 8. I can't figure out why this line is so low which is the only worry I have.
San Diego ML +125
Volquez has had 2 good starts in a row and is 4-0 with a 2.21 ERA lifetime versus the Cubbies. Jackson on the other hand has never beaten the Padres. I believe there's value in San Diego tonight.
Milwaukee ML -138
The Brewers are 45-7 versus the Pirates at home since 2007. Estrada has a lifetime 1.43 ERA against them, while McDonald has been lit up to a tune of a 8.75 ERA in five starts at Miller Park. McDonald has pitched well recently, but I'm sticking with the trend.
White Sox @ Texas U8
Darvish and Quintana have both pitched extremely well this season and neither offense has hit well of late.
