July 21 (Dodgers at Nationals/ Orioles at Yankees)
Our record this week so far is 8-4-1, and that has not come from riding heavy favorites. There are two early games both featuring contending teams. Let’s start the day off with some extra cash!
Los Angeles Dodgers at Washington Nationals
Dodgers (Urias 1-2, 4.95) Washington (Strasburg 13-0, 2.51)
Washington is 16-1 when Strasburg starts. Strasburg has not allowed more than four earned runs all season and current Dodgers have a lifetime .182 batting average against him with zero home runs in 66 at bats.
The Dodgers have won Urias’ last four starts, including a 4-3 win against Washington on June 22. However Urias did struggle in his last start where he allowed five earned runs over three and two-thirds innings against the Orioles.
I am taking the Nationals -181 and Strasburg over the Dodgers.
Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees
Orioles (Tillman 13-2, 3.29) Yankees (Sabathia 5-7, 3.94)
After a great start things have taken a negative turn for Sabathia who is 0-3 with a 7.94 ERA over his last four starts.
Baltimore starter Chris Tillman is 5-2 with a 3.38 ERA in road games this season and has allowed only one earned run in each of his last three starts. The Orioles are also 9-0 when Tillman starts against the AL East.
The Orioles currently have several key injuries with Chris Davis, Manny Machado, Matt Wieters and Adam Jones all as question marks. The Orioles have only scored six runs over their last five games, despite not facing one pitcher with an ERA close to under 4.
Orioles Moneyline +115
Under 9 runs -125
