10 Aug 18:35 Baltimore Orioles vs Houston Astros
The Astros winning this game will give them the sweep but the Orioles will put up a fight here which is one of the reasons I’m taking the spread on the underdogs. The Orioles are going with Dean Kremer for this game and he had an ERA of 3.45 for July and the Orioles won every game he started. His winning streak has carried into this month as he started against the Mets in a game the Orioles won 10-3. The Orioles will not waste their home-ground advantage by letting themselves get swept, bet on the underdogs here.
10 Aug 18:35 Pittsbugh Pirates vs Atlanta Braves
Starting Pitcher Bailer Falter is 0-7 for the season, so in simple terms each time he’s started the Pirates have gone on to lose the game. Bryce Elder will start for the Braves and he is 8-3, he’s a better pitcher with a much better team behind him. I’m riding with the Braves ML here.
11 Aug 01:10 Boston Red Sox vs Kansas City Royals
When these two teams meet up they are averaging 8 runs per game and that’s my bet here, simply the over. Both teams have terrible bullpens the Royals have a bullpen ERA of 5.18 with the Red Sox having a bullpen of 4.39. The Red Sox are top 5 when it comes to batting average and they won’t be shy to get runs against Austin Cox. The Royals pitcher in his last 4 starts the over has come. As I said the Red Sox don’t have a good bullpen the Royals will also score and the over will come here.
