    Washington Nationals (Espino) @ Philadelphia Phillies (Syndergaard)
    PHI -1.5 (-122) & Syndergaard O4.5Ks (+122)
    – The new-look Washington National head to Philadelphia to start a four-game series against their division rivals. Newly acquired Philly Noah (Thor) Syndergaard gets the nod however he has been struggling as of lately. The nice thing for him is he gets to face a Nationals team who has lost their top offensive power. The Phillies are coming off a series split with the red-hot Braves and look to carry that momentum into this series. I like the Phillies to rally behind their new pitcher and for Thor to have a big debut. I’m betting PHI -1.5 (-122) and Thor to have O4.5Ks (+122).

    Houston Astros (Verlander) @ Cleveland Guardians (Plesac)
    NRFI (-107) & HOU -1.5 (-109) & Verlander O5.5Ks (+117)
    – Houston heads into Cleveland to begin their four-game series and last of the season against the Guardians. This should be a good series as both these teams sit in a playoff spot. Plesac hasn’t had the season he was hoping for and he has to face a great Houston offense. On the other side, you have the ageless Justin Verlander who is putting together a CY Young-type year. The Astros behind Verlander put an absolute licking on other teams. We hit a nice HR prop bet yesterday with Mancini so adding one for Verlander today. I’m betting NRFI (-107) & HOU -1.5 (-109) and Verlander O5.5ks (+117).

    Boston Red Sox (Pivetta) @ Kansas City Royals (Bubic)
    BOS ML (-132) & JD Martinez HR (+360)-
    The Red Sox head to Kansas City for a four-game series and their first meeting between these two teams this year. The Red Sox are currently in must-win situations as they scramble this second half of the season to fight for a Wild Card position. Coming off a nice series win over HOU I’m looking to the Sox to keep this momentum against a rare opponent who is worst than them. The Sox are starting to get people back at the right time and adding Hosmer to the lineup might help. The player that needs to step up is JD Martinez and I’m looking to him to break out of his slump in this series. I’m betting Red Sox ML (-132) and J.D. Martinez HR (+360).
