Oakland Athletics (Kaprielian) @ Houston Astros (McCullers Jr.)
HOU -1.5 (-130) – The Astros play host to AL West Rival the Athletics for their season’s final series. The Astros are coming off another sweep of the Tigers and look to add to their commanding lead of locking up yet another division title. McCullers is getting his 6th start of the year, has an impressive 3-1 record, and is 2-0 at home with a 2.20 ERA. The Athletics, like many teams this late in the season, are bringing up their young guys to get some at-bats. The only other thing the Athletics are fighting for is to not finish the season with the worst record in baseball. I’m betting Houston -1.5 (-130) to get the job done tonight.
Pittsburgh Pirates (Brubaker) @ New York Mets (Carrasco)
NYM -1.5 (-114) – The Mets are playing host to the Pirates for their final series between the two teams this season. Surprisingly, the Mets just don’t want to win. The Pirates are coming into this series looking to extend their winning streak to 5 games while the Mets come off of an embarrassing series sweep to the Cubs. In my opinion, Carrasco should have gotten the start last night however the Mets will look to him today to get them back in the winning column. The Mets have been lucky during this skid to hold off the Braves and remain in 1st place in the NL East. I like Carrasco here, 8-2 at home this season and coming off a strong last outing. I’m betting NYM -1.5 (-114) to get the job done tonight.
