Athletics at Royals, 2:10 p.m. EDT
The first two games of this series have seen 22 and 17 total runs. With the pitching matchup of Paul Blackburn vs. Daniel Lynch, I see more of the same this afternoon. The Royals are hitting .290/.347/.466 over their last 12 games while averaging 6.1 runs per game. They also only strikeout 19.5 percent of the time. The A's are hitting .278/.338/.464 over their last 14 games and averaging 6.4 runs per game.
Both teams bullpens have been heavily used the last two games, which makes this even more likely to be another high-scoring game.
BET: Over 10 runs (-110) for 1 RWBuck
Giants vs. Padres 3:45 p.m. EDT
Gausman has regressed some over his last six starts with an ERA of 4.13 and 1.19 WHIP, but these teams are headed in opposite directions and the numbers are staggering.
The Giants are 11-2 in their last 13 games, hitting .289/.381/.534 for seven runs per game. Just three of those 11 games have been decided by one run or less, and they have surpassed four runs in 11 of 13. The Padres have been terrible in their last 30 games, going 9-21 and hitting only .207/.288/.341 while averaging 3.4 runs per game.
We are less than three weeks away from the end of the regular season and oddsmakers are still disrespecting the Giants.
BET: Giants -1.5 (+155 DraftKings) for 1 RWBuck
BET: Giants over 4.5 runs (+100 BetMGM) for 1 RWBuck
Astros at Rangers, 8:05 p.m. EDT
On a short slate it forces you to look at every game to find an angle. When I see two divisional teams this late in the season, I know I can rely on some head-to-head data. The Astros have won 13 of 18 in the series. Twelve of 18 games in this series have gone over the 8.5 run total. The games in Texas show us the value on the over as the average runs scored has been 10.4. Valdez has been up and down recently and Otto got bombed against the A's his last start.
BET: Over 8.5 runs (-110) for 1 RW buck
