|MLB Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets|
Diamondbacks (Gallen) @ Mets (Peterson) 7:10 PM ET
Play On: Under 7.0 (5*)
Zac Gallen is an underrated pitcher in my estimation and especially when facing a light hitting team like the Mets have been thus far in 2021. Gallen has a solid 3.48 ERA in 4 starts this season and that includes 2-0 on the road with a 2.13 ERA and 0.87 WHIP. Arizona is coming off yesterday’s 3-1 loss at Miami and that’s significant. Since the start of last season, Arizona has played 22-5 (81.5%) to the under after scoring 2 runs or fewer in their previous game.
The Mets have played 8-0-2 to the under at home this season. The Mets David Peterson has made 2 starts at home with a terrific 2.25 ERA and 0.67 WHIP through 12.0 innings pitched. The Mets bullpen has a brilliant 1.82 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 10 games at Citi Field. That includes recording 33 strikeouts and allowing 0 home runs over 24 2/3 innings of work. Bet on this game to go under the total for a 5* wager.
|MLB Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals|
White Sox (Rodon) @ Royals (Keller) 8:10 PM ET
Play On: White Sox -1.5 (+108) (5*)
The Royals Brad Keller has an abysmal 12.46 ERA and 2.54 WHIP in 3 home starts this season. Additionally, Keller has lasted 4 1/3 innings or less in 4 of his 6 starts this year. That’s not good news for Royals backers considering the Kansas City bullpen has been horrible over their previous 7 games with a staff 9.57 ERA, 1.79 WHIP, and they’ve surrendered 10 home runs in just 26 1/3 innings. Kansas City enters today on a 5-game losing streak and has been outscored 37-17 during that stretch.
The White Sox Carlos Rodon has been dominant in his 4 starts this season while gathering a microscopic 0.72 ERA and striking out 36 batters in 25.0 innings pitched. The White Sox bullpen has a stellar staff 2.16 ERA and 0.90 WHIP throughout their last 7 games. Chicago is coming off a 1-0 loss at Cincinnati in their previous game. The White Sox have gone 12-2 this season following a loss in their previous game and outscored its opponents by a substantial average of 3.8 runs scored per game. Bet on the White Sox for a 5* run-line wager.
|MLB Milwaukee Brewers at Miami Marlins|
Brewers (Suter) @ Marlins (Rogers) 7:10 PM ET
Play On: Under 6.5 95*)
The Brewers Brent Suter is making his first start of the season. Yet, the total is now 6.5 after opening at 7.0. That certainly raised my antennas. Suter will be facing a Marlins team that has averaged only 3.9 runs scored per game this season. Since the start of the 2020 season, Milwaukee has played 11-1 to the under on the road versus National League teams who average 4.0 or fewer runs scored per game.
Miami’s Trevor Rogers has been superb in 6 starts this season with a 1.91 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. One of those starts came against Milwaukee and Rogers pitched 6.0 innings of scoreless baseball. The Marlins bullen has been great over their previous 7 games while registering a 1.42 ERA as a staff. Bet on this game to go under the total for a 5* wager.
