Favorite Pick of the Day:
YANKEES (-161) over Mariners

Tough to Stomach Pick of the Day
ASTROS (-240) over Royals

Pick ‘em of the Day:
Phillies (-110) over CARDINALS

Are you sure? Pick of the Day:
Marlins (+140) over CUBS

The Skinny:
Once one of the hottest teams in baseball, the Mariners have been colder and soggier than the city they play in. They are 1-7 in their last eight and 1-6 in their last seven road games. With Masahiro Tanaka on the mound for the Yankees, don’t expect that to get any better. . . . Unless you have big money (which I don’t), you won’t make much when the Astros beat the Royals tonight. The Royals are 1-6 in Danny Duffy’s last seven starts and the Astros are 18-4 in Collin McHugh’s last 22 home starts vs. a team with a losing record. . . . For as much as Aaron Nola has regressed so far this year, the Phillies are solid with him on the mound after a tough outing. The Phillies are 4-1 in Nola’s last five starts after scoring two runs or less in their previous game. Count on a bounce-back from both Nola and the Phils tonight. . . . No, I’m not THAT crazy, but there is two stats that is interesting to me in this one. The Cubs are 1-4 in their last five home games vs. a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400 and the Marlins are 4-0 in Caleb Smith’s last four starts vs. a team with a winning record. Just something to think about.
