    San Diego Padres (Clevinger) @ Washington Nationals (Abbott)

    SD -1.5 (-155), TR Padres O5.5 (+100) & SOTO HR (+310)- The Nationals host the Padres for a quick three game Welcome Back Juan Soto series. This is the first time these two teams will meet this year and what better timing after the historic trade. Rumor is though the Nationals have got better without Soto, sort of like they did when they moved on from Harper, people don’t forget. I’m not buying those rumors, Nationals stink and the Padres are dangerous. I’m going all in on the Padres offense as this pitching matchup is just the bottom of the lineup. I’m also going to throw a unit on a Juan Soto HR, what better way to say I’m back! I’m betting the Padres -1.5 (-155), TR Padres O5.5 (+100) and Soto HR (+310).

    Baltimore Orioles (Voth) @ Tampa Bay Rays (Kluber)
    BAL ML (+130) & TR BAL O3.5 (+112) The Orioles head back down to face off AL East Rivals the Rays. Things are certainly starting to heat up as we approach the end of summer and this matchup has early playoff implications. Austin Voth (BAL) has shown that he can beat the Rays this year both at home and on the road. Corey Kluber (TB) has a split between his two outings. It’s always risky to bet against the home team in a division game but I’m looking for the Orioles to bounce back from a rocky start to the month. I’m betting BAL ML (+130) and TR BAL O3.5 (+112).

    Philadelphia Phillies (Suarez) @ New York Mets (Scherzer)
    NYM -1.5 (+104), NRFI (-150) & Alonso HR (+35
    5) We have some great baseball tonight however I’m most looking forward to this game this evening, too bad it will be on AppleTV. The Mets open up a three-game series with NL East rivals the Phillies. Max Scherzer (NYM) has been electric lately and even better at home with a 4-1 record. Scherzer is coming off one of his best season performances in his last start. On the other hand Ranger Suarez (PHI) has an amazing road record of 6-1 with a 2.87 ERA. We have a great game ahead of us but I like this Mets team more than the Phillies at the moment and it doesn’t help the Phillies just lost Kyle Schwarber. I’m betting NYM -1.5 (+104), NRFI (-150), and Alonso HR (+355).
