    Los Angeles Dodgers (Heaney) @ Milwaukee Brewers (Burnes)
    NRFI (-127), LAD ML (+100) & F5U3.5 (+107)-
    This has been a great series that comes to an end this afternoon as the Dodgers look for a win to split the series. I think the value of the Dodgers being +100 this afternoon is worth the take. Heaney (LAD) is looking for his second win in the second start of the season. He faces a strong opponent in Burnes (MIL) who has put together a nice season with a 2.39 ERA and a WHIP of 0.92 that ranks in the top 5. I think this game has all the liking of low scoring and the Dodgers getting the W in the end. I’m betting NRFI (-145), F5U3.5 (+107), and LAD ML (+100).

    Boston Red Sox (Winckowski) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (Brubaker)
    BOS ML (-150) & Winckowski O3.5K (-117) – The Red Sox look to put the finishing touches on the Pirates this evening with a sweep of the series and will do so against Brubaker who is better than his record gives him. I like this Red Sox team that they have put together and with some key players coming back from injury the Sox are making some moves in the Wild Card race this month. Winckowski has been good as of late and he has a nice road ERA of 2.82. I think it’s silly that they put the prop in K’s for him at 3.5, I know he can find 4K’s out there tonight and lead the Sox to another win. I’m betting BOS ML (-150) and O3.5K’s for Winckowski (-117).

    New York Mets (DeGrom) @ Atlanta Braves (Fried)
    NRFI (-137) & NYM ML (-122) – I think that this is the game of the night and it’s a shame it is not on national TV. We have an electric matchup on the mound between DeGrom (NYM) and Fried (ATL). I’m looking right off the bat at NRFI for this game and should be low scoring throughout. DeGrom is getting his 4th start and his second already against the Braves and he lit them up in the first game and I like the same result. These two NL East rivals are fighting for the top of the division and I like the Mets to pull this one out tonight and take another game lead in the division. I’m betting NRFI (-137) and NYM ML (-122).
