Favorite Pick of the Day:
PHILLIES (-222) over Tigers

Intrastate Play of the Day
Dodgers (-132) over GIANTS

Pick’em of the Day:
Cubs (-110) over MARINERS

Are you sure? Pick of the Day:
Cardinals (+125) over NATIONALS

The Skinny:
Even though the Tigers are 7-1 in their last eight against the Phillies, I’m taking the home team. With Aaron Nola on the mound, the Phillies are 9-2 in their last 11 home starts vs. a team with a losing record. It’s time for him to break out of his slump. . . . The proof is in the pudding for this one: the Dodgers are 10-1 in Hyun-Jin Ryu’s last 11 starts vs. National League West, the Dodgers are 8-2 in Ryu’s last 10 starts with four days of rest and the Giants are 1-7 in Madison Bumgarner’s last eight starts. . . . All good things when it comes to projecting the Cubs today: they are 6-1 in their last seven road games, 10-1 in their last 11 interleague games vs. a left-handed starter and 4-0 in Jon Lester’s last four interleague starts. . . . Fading Max Scherzer is never really a good idea, but today seems like a good day to do it. The Nationals are 1-5 in Scherzer’s last six starts and 0-6 in their last six when their opponent allows two runs or less in their previous game.
