    Milwaukee Brewers (Ashby) @ Chicago Cubs (Thompson)
    MIL ML (-141) & U10R *-109)- The Brewers open up a three-game series on the road to rival the Chicago Cubs. The Brewers are hunting for the division as they trail the Cardinals by only three games, a sweep on the Cubs will put them right where they want to be. The Cubs have got the better of the Brewers recently, 4-1 SU in their last 5 but I got a soft spot for the Brewers. I also like the under in this game as both the Brewers and Cubs have hit in their last half of games. This is the only afternoon game we got today. I’m betting MIL ML (-141) and U 10R (-109).

    New York Mets (Bassitt) @ Philadelphia Phillies (Nola)
    NYM ML (+107) & B.Baty O0.5R (+188) – The New York Mets head to Philadelphia for another NL East rivalry game. After coming off a tough series loss to the Braves the Mets look to rebound against the Phillies. The Mets are getting good odds for a road game, and I like them straight up against the Phillies. The other bet I like in this game is the new stud Brett Baty who’s been making a name for himself in these first couple of games of his MLB career. Nothing excites me about this pitching matchup enough to discuss, I’m going on the Mets today. I’m betting Mets ML (+107) and B, Baty to record over 0.5R (+188).

    Kansas City Royals (Singer) @ Tampa Bay Rays (McClanahan)
    TB -1.5 (+165) –
    The Tampa Bay Rays are not a team I would want to be facing at the moment, they are connecting on all levels. Today they are throwing McClanahan who has just been nasty this year and even better at home. McClanahan has a 2.37 ERA, 9-3 record, and ranks at the top of pitching this year. I don’t see much of a chance from a Royals team that is figuring out what to do. I’m keeping it simple in this game and I’m betting TB -1.5 (+165).
