Kansas City Royals (15-28) @ Minnesota Twins (27-18), 8:10 p.m. ET

  • MIN Starting Pitcher: Bailey Ober (1-1, 2.55 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 7.3 K/9)
  • KC Starting Pitcher: Brad Keller (1-4, 3.2 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 5.15 K/9)
  • Last 10: MIN is 7-3 in their last 10 games. KC is 3-7 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – O/U: MIN is 5-4-1 in their last 10 games. KC is 6-3-1 in their last 10 games.

  • Last 10 – Runs Allowed: MIN allowed 3.3 runs on average in their last 10 games. KC allowed 5.4 runs.
  • MLB Free Pick: Pass
  • WHY?: The model just doesn’t see a lot of value in this game. The Kansas City Royals are where most of the value can be found, but the model still projects them to lose, so you’d really just be betting on the runline. Or you can pass altogether because nothing really stands out as being worth your hard-earned money here. 

 

Milwaukee Brewers (29-16) @ St. Louis Cardinals (24-20), 8:15 p.m. ET

  • STL Starting Pitcher: Dakota Hudson (3-2, 3.6 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, 4.95 K/9)

  • MLB Free Pick:

Toronto Blue Jays (24-20) @ Los Angeles Angels (27-19), 9:38 p.m. ET

  • LAA Starting Pitcher: Chase Silseth (1-1, 2.61 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 8.71 K/9)
  • TOR Starting Pitcher: Alek Manoah (5-1, 1.62 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, 7.74 K/9)
  • Last 10: LAA is 4-6 in their last 10 games. TOR is 6-4 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – O/U: LAA is 5-4-1 in their last 10 games. TOR is 3-7-0 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – Score: LAA averaged 3.9 runs scored in their last 10 games. TOR averaged 3.4 runs scored.
  • Last 10 – Runs Allowed: LAA allowed 4.8 runs on average in their last 10 games. TOR allowed 2.6 runs.
  • MLB Free Pick: Pass
  • WHY?: The model likes the Angels here, but is skewed a bit by only having two starts from Silseth to work with. We know Manoah is tremendous, but we also know this Toronto offense has been under-performing. There are just a few too many unknowns for me to place money on this game, but I am really interested in watching it.

  • Last 10 – O/U: OAK is 4-5-1 in their last 10 games. TEX is 3-6-1 in their last 10 games.
