    MLB | Padres vs Reds
    Play on: Padres +112 at BMaker

    The Padres lost on Sunday in extra innings to drop their series with the Pirates but they have still been on a solid run, going 9-7 over their last 16 games. San Diego is the worst hitting team in baseball while scoring a league low 420 runs (3.8 rpg) but the offense has been significantly better during this stretch, averaging 4.7 rpg. Going back, the Padres are 5-2 in their last seven games following a loss. The Reds lost two of three games against the Cardinals including a 13-4 loss on Sunday, allowing 13 unanswered runs after jumping out to a 3-0 lead. It has been an awful run for the Reds as they have lost 36 of their last 52 games including a 3-11 record in their last 14 games at home. One look at Jhoulys Chacin’s numbers and it shows he is having a decent yet unspectacular season with a 3.99 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. His statline is severely skewed however and it is the result of only three bad starts. In April and May, he put up bad games against the Diamondbacks, Dodgers and Mets that resulted in an ugly 20.70 ERA and 2.80 WHIP covering just 10 innings. In his other 19 starts, he has a 2.71 ERA and 1.13 WHIP which is a better indication of the season he is having. In those 19 starts, he has allowed three runs or less in all 19 games with 13 of those resulting in quality starts. The Reds counter with Tim Adleman who has been on a horrible run. He had a 4.22 ERA through June 16 but has posted a 7.30 ERA over his last eight starts with only one of those resulted in a quality performance. The Reds have lost eight of his 10 starts.

    Another play with a ton of value the Orioles have been smoking hot Orioles are off a 12-3 win and have won 7 of 10 and the Angels have dropped two straight. My only worry on this one is the travel Orioles had to go east to west coast and the Angels just sat at home waiting. Dylan Bundy is the Orioles best starter and has had 10 quality outings in his last 11 outings. Bundy will be working on 5 days rest and we will invest a 9 unit investment on the Orioles late Monday Night can’t pass on the plus money here.

    No doubt the Cubs have cooled off a little, losers of 4 of their last 5, but their numbers against the Giants suggest laying the run-and-a-half over San Francisco tonight at AT&T Park.

    Chicago has won 3 of 4 this season off of San Fran, and have also claimed 7 of the last 9 – postseason included – off of the Giants.

    San Francisco has shown a little life of late with 4 wins over their last 6 games, but not sure I trust Matt Moore to keep the winning going.

    Moore last won on June 20th, and is 0-4 over his last 7 starts!

    Jake Arrieta is off a hard-luck loss to Arizona, as he allowed just 2 runs – 1 of them earned – in a 3-0 setback his last time out. Since the break, Jake has worked 26-plus innings with 6 earned runs allowed.

    Arrieta keeps the bats at bay by the bay, and the Cubs get to Moore early in a 3 runs or better win.

    MLB | Brewers vs Twins
    Play on: Brewers +101 at BetOnline

    #MLB Free Pick from Mike Lundin
    Play: Milwaukee Brewers
    Rating: 5/10*

    The Milwaukee Brewers enter the week just a half-game back of the Cubs who are top of the NL Central division. They had won three straight prior to a 2-1 loss at Tampa Bay on Sunday, and I think they’ll start the new week with a victory.

    The Twins hand the ball to Ervin Santana (12-7, 3.28 ERA). He was excellent his last start when he fanned nine and allowed just a pair of runs in a complete game at San Diego. Santana might be in for a rough outing here though as he’s 0-2 with a 7.41 ERA in three career starts against the Brew Crew, and he’s been far better on the road (2.52 ERA) than at home (4.09 ERA) this season.

    Brent Suter (2-2, 3.04 ERA) will toe the rubber for Milwaukee. He is 2-1 with a 2.55 ERA in six starts since filling in for the injured Chase Anderson in the rotation. Suter was knocked around for five runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings of a 5-4 home loss to St. Louis his last time out after a pair of homers from Yadier Molina. He will however not have to deal with Molina this time around, and I think he’ll do well in his first start against Minnesota.

    Monday freebie is the Over in the Tigers-Pirates meeting at PNC Park.

    First interleague showdown between the teams this season, and it should be pointed out that 7 straight meetings between these teams dating back to 2015 have ALL played Over the total.

    This one will head Over the total as well with Jordan Zimmerman and Trevor Williams doing the mound work.

    Both pitchers sport ERA’s of 4 of higher over their last 3 starts.

    Zimmerman has seen 2 of his last 3 starts land Over the total, and the Over is 13-7-1 for the year when he starts.

    Williams has been on the hill for more Unders than Overs, but I get the feeling that tonight is a hitter’s night in the Steel City.

    Tigers and Pirates to make their way Over the total tonight.

    Chi Cubs vs. San Francisco, 08/07/2017 22:08 EDT

    Money Line: +166 San Francisco

    Sportsbook:
    Bookmaker

    The Giants (44-69) are mired in last place in the NL West, but they beat Arizona 6-3 on Sunday and won the series 2-1 and must not be underestimated in this particular situation. It was San Francisco that the Cubs beat in last seasons 2016 NL Division Series, and now the Giants out of the play off race, would love nothing more to get a little revenge and curtail any hopes of the Cubs have of making a run at post season play.

    I know the Cubs starter Arrieta (10-8, 3.88 ERA) is in good form while Moore (3-11, 5.80 ERA) the Giants starting hurler is mired in a season long slump. But it must be noted Moore , the last time he faced the Cubs at AT&T, in Game 4 of the 2016 NL Division Series he surrendered just two runs (one earned) over eight innings with 10 strikeouts , and will very motivated and primed for a repeat performance in the opening game of this series.

    ARRIETA’s team when he starts is just 5-9 against the money line against NL West opponents dating back to last season. SAN FRANCISCO is 26-16 L/42 against the money line in home games vs. a team with a very good bullpen whose WHIP is 1.250 or better .CHICAGO CUBS are 10-16 against the money line against NL West opponents this season.Giants are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. National League Central.Giants are 6-1 in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. Giants have won 6 of the L/9 home games in this series.

    MLB Road teams like the Cubs – with a hot starting pitcher- WHIP 1.100 or less over his last 10 games, after a game where the bullpen was rocked for 5 or more earned runs are 16-36 for a 69% conversion rate for bettors.

    MLB | Orioles vs Angels
    Play on: Angels -122 at BetOnline

    Jack’s Free Pick Monday: Los Angeles Angels -122

    The Los Angeles Angels will be highly motivated for a win Monday after blowing a 10-5 lead to the A’s on Sunday. They take on a Baltimore Orioles team that is coming off a nice homestand, but they are just 20-33 on the road this season.

    JC Ramirez is having a solid season overall at 8-9 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.299 WHIP in 21 starts this season. He has been very good of late, going 2-1 with a 1.31 ERA in his last three starts while allowing just 3 earned runs in 20 2/3 innings to the Red Sox, Indians and Phillies.

    Dylan Bundy got off to a great start this season but has cooled of late. He is now 10-8 with a 4.24 ERA in 21 starts this season, including 4-4 with a 4.80 ERA and 1.344 WHIP in nine road starts.

    The Orioles are 11-26 in their last 37 road games, including 6-20 in their last 26 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The Angels are 27-13 in their last 40 home games vs. a team with a losing record, including 5-1 in Ramirez’s last 6 starts vs. a team with a losing record. Bet the Angels Monday.

    MLB | Marlins vs Nationals
    Play on: Nationals -1½ -135 at 5dimes

    1 Unit FREE PLAY on Washington Nationals -1.5 (-135)

    Taking the Nationals on the -135 run line today certainly beats laying -300 with them. That’s a nice discount as the Nationals shouldn’t have a problem winning by two runs or more over the Marlins. Max Scherzer faced Chris O’Grady just six days ago. Scherzer left that game with a 6-0 lead after the first inning with neck stiffness, and the Nationals proceeded to blow that lead and lose 7-6. O’Grady gave up 6 earned runs in 3 innings and is now 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in five starts this year. He’s in over his head against Scherzer, who is 12-5 with a 2.21 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 22 starts. He is 6-3 with a 3.45 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 12 previous starts against Miami. The Nationals are 27-11 in Scherzer’s last 38 starts and 6-1 in his last seven home starts. The Marlins are 15-36 in the last 51 meetings in Washington.

    The Reds are worth a look here tonight going up against the Padres. San Diego is sending Chacin to the mound who is in good form but the key for him is that he has by far had his best stuff at home. Now he is on the road where he owns a 7.53 ERA. I think the Reds get the job done tonight

    Play on: UNDER 9 -120

    10* FREE MLB PICK (Tigers/Pirates UNDER 9)

    If you look at the overall numbers of today’s two starters, you would probably lean towards the OVER. However, I like what I have seen from today’s two starters. Detroit will give the ball to Jordan Zimmermann, who is coming off arguably his best start of the season, allowing just 6 hits and no walks over 7 shutout innings. Pittsburgh will send out Trevor Williams, who has allowed 2 runs or less in 4 straight home starts. You also have to factor in that PNC Park is a pitchers park and with mild conditions expected, the ball doesn’t figure to be flying out of the park in this one. Give me the UNDER 9!

    Play on: Twins -108 at 5dimes

    Not many times you can get the Twins ace in Santana at home at this price. I will gladly back him as he is 12-7 on the year with a good 3.28 ERA. The problem is that he doesn’t always get great run support, but I think he will tonight as Suter finally came back down to earth his last start against the Cardinals getting rocked. The Brewers were very lucky over the weekend to win two of their 3 games despite scoring a total of only 6 runs in those three games.
