    Colorado Rockies (Kuhl) @ New York Mets (Bassitt)
    NYM -1.5 (-148) & NYM TT O5.5 (+117)-
    The Mets play host again to the struggling Rockies and a matchup between Chad Kuhl and Chris Bassitt. I’m going to continue to ride the Mets in this series after we had an incredible day yesterday. The Mets are in must-win games to stay atop of the NL East however the Braves have no easy test this weekend. Chris Bassitt has been lights out for August going 4-0, I’m backing him and this Mets offense again tonight. I’m betting the Mets -1.5(-148) and the Mets TT O5.5(+117).

    San Diego Padres (Musgrove) @ Kansas City Royals (Bubic)
    SD -1.5 (-117) –
    The Padres head to Kansas City for a quick three-game series with the Royals. The Padres are heading in the wrong direction and this series seems like it couldn’t come at a better time for them. Joe Musgrove is needing some things to go his way however he’s had success on the road. Musgrove is 5-3 with a 3.07 ERA and gets a go at a struggling offense. I’m keeping it simple in this one and I’m betting SD -1.5(-117).

    New York Yankees (Cole) @ Oakland Athletics (Sears)
    NYY -1.5 (-134) & NRFI (-158) –
    The Yankees are looking to continue this win streak into the weekend. We have a great pitching matchup this evening as recently traded Yankee JP Sears faces his old team for the first time. Sears seems to be the only good thing going for the A’s at the moment however they have to go up against Gerrit Cole who just finds ways to win even though he should be 0-30. The Yankees are hot right now and it’s tough to not ride them especially win Cole is pitching. I’m betting NYY -1.5(-134)&NRFI(-158) for this evenings game.
