    Chicago White Sox (Lynn) @ Baltimore Orioles (Lyles)
    BAL ML (+104) –
    The Orioles play host to the final game between these two this season as both teams are still in the hunt for that third and final Wild Card spot. With both these teams needing wins and the season shrinking these games become a lot more important. I like the Orioles to close out the White Sox at home this afternoon behind Jordan Lyles. Lyles has had an impressive season for a team that was not expected to do anything. He holds a nice 4-2 home record with a 3.13ERA. The Orioles have been grinding all season and I like this matchup to favor them today. I’m betting BAL ML (+104).

    Cincinnati Reds (Dunn) @ Philadelphia Phillies (Nola)
    PHI -1.5 (-159) & Nola O7.5Ks (-112) –
    The Philadelphia Phillies are still holding onto a Wild Card spot, but they make their games interesting. The Phillies should have their stud Harper back here soon but in the meantime, they are going to keep giving gamblers a heart attack. The Phillies should be killing the Reds and I’m looking for the blowout game here this evening behind Aaron Nola. Nola has been pitching well, he’s got a .500 record at home going 4-4 but has had a good August. I like him shutting this Reds offense down and the Phillies to sweep. I’m betting PHI -1.5 (-159) and Nola O7.5Ks (-112).

    Colorado Rockies (Feltner) @ New York Mets (deGrom)
    NYM -1.5 (-175), deGrom O9.5Ks (+100) & P. Alonso HR (+275) –
    The Mets are coming off a much-needed day of rest after a tough series sweep to cross-town rivals the Yankees. They now host a struggling Rockies team for a 4 game series. The Mets are barely hanging on to the NL East Division as the Braves continue to chip away. Luckily for the Mets, this should be a sweep but you just don’t know. I like deGrom on the mound to get this series started as he’s been lights out in his return, 2-0 at home with a 1.54 ERA. I’m betting his k’s this evening and I’m also going to sprinkle some money on Alonso to hit a HR, he’s due. I’m betting the NYM -1.5 (-175), deGrom to record O9.5Ks (+100), and Alonso HR (+275).
