BRAVES 3 WAYS

SAUCE SAYS...

UPDATE: Zach Thompson is no longer starting for Miami so I had to delete all my notes. I still like the Braves.. specifically... Charlie Morton. He's gotten hit hard by the Marlins in his last 2 starts against them. It's the perfect spot for him to show he's a veteran that can adapt and get some outs. I like Atlanta.

TOAST SAYS...

This is a game where I think the Braves ride their vet Charlie Morton who has already faced the Marlins this year. I think the Braves really need this series, the Marlins could be a little let down spot after beating the Dodgers.

BLUE JAYS ML +112
BLUE JAYS F5 -103

F5 UNDER 4.5

SAUCE SAYS...

I get it... Tampa's won 4 straight and looked pretty good... but I don't understand how Toronto could possibly be getting plus money with Manoah on the mound. This dude has thrown 13 straight scoreless innings... 7 of them AGAINST TAMPA. Shane McClanahan has been really solid and consistent and I like him... but Toronto got to him not even a week ago... Blue Jays have hit lefties well all season... I see no reason why they won't get to him again.

TOAST SAYS...

I really like Alek Manoah. He has been very good, only having 1 bad start all year. Rays have won 4 in a row, but i think that ends here. Bluejays hitting .293 last 20 days to .237 for the Rays.

RANGERS ML +120
RANGERS F5 ML +125

SAUCE SAYS...

This is a crazy one... at first glance, I was thinking Oakland all the way. But every piece of info points towards Texas. In the past 2 weeks... the Rangers are 1st in the MLB against lefties... and they hit Cole Irvin pretty well just 3 weeks ago. Jordan Lyles completely turned his season around and has been throwing REAL well. Oakland's bats have gone cold... especially against right handed pitching. I'll take Texas.

TOAST SAYS...

First the Rangers beat up on Oakland not long ago 2 out of 3 games. Jordan lyles pitching for Texas has pitched great his last 3 games, 19 innings and 5 earned runs. Texas has scored 3 runs or more 8 of last 9 games, where Oakland has scored 2 or less 8 of 9.

REDS F5 ML -125
REDS F5 -.5 +130

SAUCE SAYS...

I'm only putting the first 5 down... cuz the ending of Cincinnati Reds games are always a toss up. Their bullpen is terrible and they also score the 2nd most runs 7th inning or later in the MLB... once a Cincinnati Reds game hits the 7th inning... ANYTHING can happen. That being said... plain and simple... I like Wade Miley better than Eric Lauer. Eric Lauer hasn't been good against Cincinatti... he pitched against them twice in June and they got him out of the game early both times.

TOAST SAYS...

I am going to do it again. Look Wade Miley has been much better than Lauer, and Lauer has pitched his last 3 games against the Rockies and Pirates. This is a bit different task. Like the Royals yesterday, get in and get out. They scored at the end of games.

ASTROS 4 WAYS

SAUCE SAYS...

I can't believe the money is on New York in this game. That seems crazy to me. Odorizzi has been good... like REAL good. He's let up 1 earned run in his last 20 innings. The Yankees are starting Nestor Cortes... this will only be his 4th career start... He's never thrown more than 3 2/3 innings in a game before. This is the perfect pitcher for the Astros to get their groove against lefties back.

TOAST SAYS...

This is my favorite play of the day the yankees have to travel from Seattle they travel from Seattle they are 1 in 6 their last 7 games against right handers.  The Astros are 41-20 against teams over .500 record. They just smashing baseballs. Jake Odorizzi has been great the last month. ASTROS EVERY WAY YOU CAN!

MARINERS ML +105
MARINERS F5 +107

OVER 8.5

SAUCE SAYS...

At first glance, I was on the Angels cuz they've been hot as hell... one of the best teams in baseball right now. But check this out Seattle is 15-7 in their last 22. Mariners are flying under the radar playing great baseball right now. Alex Cobb is having a good year... but he's doing his damage at home... he's been very beatable on the road. Marco Gonzalez has been really shaky but check his game logs out... this dude just seems to show up for big games... his best 3 starts this year have been against the Dodgers, the Astros and the Rays. 3 good teams.

TOAST SAYS...

I love this spot for the mariners I think marco Gonzalez has to show the front office what he is has to show the front office what he is made of.  Alex Cobb on the other hand is just awful on the road. I like the Mariners tonight as a home dog.  Keep in mind Seattle has been sneaky good winning games.

SAUCE EXTRAS

WHITE SOX 4 WAYS

SAUCE SAYS...

I love everything about this except two things... I'm not crazy about Dallas Keuchel's away splits... he's been much better at home than he has on the road... and I don't like how Baltimore seems to be hitting lefties again like they were a month ago. But... Chicago's bats are hitting again... their bullpen's pitched well. They should take this game easily after a day off.

INDIANS F5 -.5

SAUCE SAYS...

Toast is not gonna cosign this pick I can guarantee it. He hates Tristan McKenzie... but fuck that... this kid's got good stuff just struggles with control. He got sent down to AAA where he started 3 games... got some confidence back. I'm not saying he's gonna come back to Cleveland and be an ace... but I think he'll give us a quality start... against Brad Keller... who SUCKS.

RED SOX ML -127
RED SOX -1.5 +133

SAUCE SAYS...

The Red Sox lost a series to one of the hottest teams in the league on the road... that's not enough for me to think they're run is over. They've still won 10 of the last 13 games and they're home against Philly... yeah the Phillies were able to beat the Cubs... but that's the Cubs... enough said. I don't trust Vince Velasquez... I don't trust the Phillies bullpen or their bats really. I'll bet Boston on the full game.

TIGERS ML +200

SAUCE SAYS...

I'm going to take a little shot on the Tigers but I openly admit this is a tough sell. Completely understand if you don't want to follow me here. The Tigers have just been hot man I can't fade em. Twins have a CLEAR pitching advantage with Maeda throwing. I'm betting the Tigers leave me alone.

DODGERS -1.5 -130

SAUCE SAYS...

If the Dodgers lose this game... after that Marlins series... back home... against the worst team in the MLB... with David Price on the mound.... I will openly admit that I have no clue what's going on in baseball.
