Straight plays go 2-1 and we had to make some adjustments due to the fact that Jacob deGrom got scratched from his start. We also went 7 out of 8 on the long shot parlay. Here’s a look back at yesterday’s picks.

7:05 EST

Parlay

Mets ML / Yankees ML (-108) – Jacob deGrom will pitch for the Mets tonight and he’s 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA this season. He’s held the Phillies lineup to a .207 avg in 164 at bats. Spencer Howard will pitch for the Phillies and he’s 0-1 on the season with a 7.71 ERA. The Phillies have lost 4 out of their last 5 including the 3 game sweep they suffered against the Orioles.

Gerrit Cole will pitch for the Yankees and he has held this Red Sox lineup to a .239 avg in 71 at bats. Red Sox pitching has allowed 8 or more runs in 4 straight games. I’d expect the Yankees to put up 5+ tonight and I don’t see the Red Sox scoring 5 runs against Gerrit Cole who is going for his 20th straight win tonight. 

UPDATED 3:42 EST:

deGrom has been scratched so we are changing up the New Yorkparlay. As I always say, make sure that you select “pitcher must start for action” on your MLB bets. If your book doesn’t do that, get a new book. Here’s the updated play instead of Mets / Yankees:

Yankees ML / Dodgers ML (Even) – Gerrit Cole will pitch for the Yankees and he has held this Red Sox lineup to a .239 avg in 71 at bats. Red Sox pitching has allowed 8 or more runs in 4 straight games. I’d expect the Yankees to put up 5+ tonight and I don’t see the Red Sox scoring 5 runs against Gerrit Cole who is going for his 20th straight win tonight. 

The Dodgers are coming off of a game where they showed their true offensive potential and scored 11 runs. Mookie Betts hit three homeruns. They will take on the cross town rival Angels tonight who just won 2 out of 3 against a good Oakland team but they are still 7-12 on the season. Clayton Kershaw will pitch for the Dodgers tonight and he has held this Angels lineup to a .233 avg in 116 at bats. The Dodgers will face 23 year old Patrick Sandoval who they have never faced before but he is 0-5 in his young career. I think this Dodgers lineup will get to him tonight.

7:10 EST

Parlay

Indians ML / Astros ML (+123) – The Indians will face Ivan Nova and they have POUNDED him in the past. They come in with a .337 avg in 104 at bats against him. Aaron Civale will pitch for the Indians and he has held this Tigers lineup to a .182 avg in 44 at bats. Civale comes in with a 2.84 ERA in comparison to Nova’s 5.74. Go Indians! 

Then we have the Astros going up against Yusei Kikuchi who they scored 5 runs in 3.2 innings earlier this season. They also went 4-0 against him last season. The Astros are hitting .300 in 80 at bats against him. Framber Valdez will pitch for the Astros and he’s only allowed 1 earned run in his last 13.1 innings pitched. The Mariners haven’t seen a lot of Framber but they only have 3 hits in 25 at bats against him. 

NHL:

10:30 EST

Stars / Flames Over (5) – These two just scored 9 total goals last night and they will be back at it tonight. 4 out of the 5 head to head matchups this season have gone over or pushed at 5. 7 out of the last 10 combined games have gone over or pushed at 5. We have another opportunity here where we just need 2 goals a side and we can’t lose. I think these two will go over again tonight.
