25 July 00:40 Philadelphia Phillies vs Baltimore Orioles
The Citizens Bank Park has now been the home for overs. In their last 10 games, 80% of the games have had runs, and this game will have too. In their last home game, the Phillies failed to register a single run but that was against the Brewers, a team with a good pitching staff, here they play the Orioles. The Orioles have a team ERA of 4.19, they are not known for their pitching and will start Dean Kremer, a pitcher with a WHIP of 1.34 and ERA of 4.80. But one thing about the Orioles is that they play well away, if the American League were based on away form they would be first, having 31 wins so far. The Orioles have also won 8 of their previous 10 away games. This game will be entertaining but take the over.
25 July 01:05 Washington Nationals vs Colorado Rockies
The Nationals are my favourites for this game, the reason being they just came off a series sweep against the Giants, where they covered the 1.5 spread in every game. Both teams may be bottom in the National League but the Nats are a better team than the Rockies. The Rockies have a batting average of .250 while the Nats are top 5 with a batting average of .262. The secondary bet for this game has to be betting on the over. Both teams are not known for their pitching and the Nats have an ERA of 4.92 and the Colorado Rockies have an ERA of 5.50. The previous series was a clean sweep of the over-take it here too.
25 July 02:10 Milwaukee Brewers vs Cincinnati Reds
The line set for this game it too high for my liking. As hot as the Reds may be they struggle to score against the Brewers this season, in the previous series between the two it ended with the Reds only scoring 3 runs in 3 games. Graham Ashcraft starts for the Reds here and the last time he played against the Brewers he only allowed 1 run in 6 innings pitched. In 10 head-to-head the under has been dominate and I expect the same here.
