St. Louis Cardinals @ Washington Nationals
Tuesday, April 30 ’19, 7:05 PM ET
The Cardinals burned me yesterday, as I had the Nationals in the series opener. I learned my lesson and will jump on the St Louis bandwagon for Game 2. The Cardinals have won 3 straight and are 8-1 in their last 9 overall.
While St Louis is surging, Washington continues to struggle. Nationals are just 1-4 in their last 5 and 3-7 in their last 10. This team really misses Trea Turner and have recently been without Anthony Rendon and Ryan Zimmerman.
A big reason for the Cardinals success of late, is they are scoring runs in bunches. St Louis is scoring 5.7 and hitting .313 as a team in their last 7 and will be up against one of the worst starters so far in 2019.
Washington’s Anibal Sanchez has a 6.00 ERA and 1.778 WHIP in 5 starts. Look for those struggles to continue. Take St Louis!
Pick: Cardinals (-107) at GTBets
San Diego Padres @ Atlanta Braves
Tuesday, April 30 ’19, 7:20 PM ET
The Atlanta Braves are cheap at home tonight against the San Diego Padres. It’s a Padres team that will be missing rookie standout Fernando Tatis Jr. Julio Teheran is pitching his best at home this season going 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA in his two home starts.
Teheran is 5-3 with a 3.73 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 10 previous starts against San Diego. He pitched 6 shutout innings with 11 strikeouts in his last start against San Diego, which came at home in 2018.
The Padres are 1-6 in their last seven games following a loss.
The Braves are 5-1 in Teheran’s last six home starts. Atlanta is 10-2 in Teheran’s last 12 home starts against a team with a winning record.
Pick: Braves (-103) at Betonline
Tampa Bay Rays @ Kansas City Royals
Tuesday, April 30 ’19, 8:15 PM ET
The Rays are now 11-1 in their last 12 meetings with the Royals. And now they send their best starter to the mound in Blake Snell to continue their dominance of Kansas City.
Snell is 2-2 with a 2.54 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 5 starts this year, including 1-0 with a 0.75 ERA and 0.67 WHIP in 2 road starts.
He’ll be opposed by Jake Junis, who is 2-2 with a 5.57 ERA and 1.49 ERA in 6 starts this year, including 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 3 home starts.
The Rays have won 15 of Snell’s last 16 starts when he is working on 5 or 6 days’ rest. Take Tampa Bay on the Run Line.
Pick: Rays -1.5 runs (-106) at Pinnacle
Chicago Cubs @ Seattle Mariners
Tuesday, April 30 ’19, 10:10 PM ET
The Mariners are a nice dog here and they fit a a powerful 115-71 system that has a 37-16 record for home team. They also fit a secondary system that pertains to their blowout home loss and the Cubs road win.
The Mariners have won 17 of 23 vs a team that scored 5 or more runs and 9 of 13 vs a lefty.
Chicago is 1-6 on the road vs A.L. Teams that are pitching a righty. Felix Hernandez makes the start and he has won 7 of 10 at home in April. He opposes C. Hamels who has dropped 2 of his last 3 starts here.
Look for Seattle to take the opener.
