Another split on Saturday, but we’ll keep with the same premise today, as we have the usual assortment of day games for this Sunday.

Pittsburgh at Cincinnati: The Pirates have climbed to -119, which is about what we would expect with the betting patterns we’re seeing in this one, as Mahle gets the start for the Reds.

San Diego at Miami: Straily is down to -161 over Richard after opening at -170 and the majority of the wagers are coming in on the Marlins.

Colorado at Atlanta: The Rockies are -128 with Gray and Foltynewicz the expected starters in this one.

Cubs at Philadelphia: The Cubs are in the -200 range and the number has stayed there, with Lackey and Pivetta getting the starts.

Mets at Washington: Washington is -160 in the early game, with Fedde favored over Milone in a game that has seen the Nationals climb from the opening number of -145.

Milwaukee at Dodgers: Darvish is -200 over Nelson in another game that hasn’t seen a whole lot of movement from its opening number.

San Francisco at Arizona: The Diamondbacks are now close to -200 with Corbin favored over Stratton.

Seattle at Yankees: Tanaka and the Yankees have dropped slightly in price and are now -178 after opening -190 and getting the majority of the wagers, as somebody is backing Albers a little bit.

Minnesota at Toronto: Biagini is now -143 after opening -124 over Gibson in a game that the Twins have actually received the majority of the wagers on.

Kansas City at Cleveland: The Indians are -195 with Carrasco over Skoglund in a game that hasn’t seen a lot of movement from the opening number.

Mets at Washington: Roark is -175 over Lugo in the nightcap, which is a shade higher than the betting suggests.
