The OVER (10) is definitely worth a look in Sunday’s early NL East matchup between the Nationals and Marlins.
Both offense should be primed for a lot of runs, as the Marlins send out Humberto Mejia and the Nationals counter with Anibal Sanchez. Mejia has a 5.69 ERA and 1.580 WHIP on the season.
That’s bad, but looks great compared to Sanchez’s 8.50 ERA and 2.111 WHIP. Each of Sanchez’s last 3 starts have seen at least 10 runs scored.
Play the OVER 10!
Expect plenty of runs in this series finale between Baltimore and Boston to push this total OVER 10.5 runs. Two of the worst starters in the big leagues square off in this AL East showdown this afternoon.
Zack Godley is 0-2 with an 8.79 ERA and 2.094 WHIP in four starts this season, allowing 14 earned runs and 5 homers in 14 1/3 innings. Wade LeBlanc is 1-0 with a 7.89 ERA and 1.524 WHIP in five starts this season with 19 earned runs and 5 homers allowed in 21 2/3 innings.
LeBlanc has been awful in his last three starts, posting an 11.82 ERA and 2.251 WHIP with 14 earned runs allowed in 10 2/3 innings. LeBlanc has also posted a 5.57 ERA in six career starts against Boston.
The OVER is 17-8-1 in Red Sox last 26 games as a road favorite. The OVER is 12-3-2 in Orioles last 17 games as a home underdog. The OVER is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings in Baltimore.
Bet the OVER in this game Sunday.
I’m well aware of the struggles the Rockies have had when visiting the Dodgers (lost 15 of last 16), I just can’t pass up Colorado at this price in Sunday’s series finale. LA has already secured the series with wins on Friday and Saturday and with a day off tomorrow, this feels like a spot where they could go just go through the motions.
More than that, the Rockies have the better starter on the mound in this one. At least to this point of the season. Colorado will give the rock to Antonio Senzatela, who is 3-0 with a 2.90 ERA and 1.032 WHIP in 5 starts. He’s been even better on the road with a 1.89 ERA and 0.947 WHIP in 3 starts. In his most recent start he threw 8 shutout innings at Houston against a good Astros lineup.
Dodgers will counter with Ross Stripling, who just hasn’t been able to put the pieces together this season. Stripling is 3-1, but has an ugly 5.61 ERA and 1.325 WHIP in 5 starts. He’s been hit really hard in his last two starts, giving up 13 runs on 14 hits (5 HRs) in just 7 2/3 innings of work. As good as LA is, this is just too good a price to pass up on Colorado.
Give me the Rockies +207!
Arizona over S.F.- Really now, Luke Weaver is favored on the road although it is against the lowly Giants it still is bogus because he stinks.
