Favorite Pick of the Day:
Red Sox (-160) over Blue Jays

Pile-On Pick of the Day:
Marlins (+160) over Phillies

Are You Sure? Pick of the Day:
Yankees (+110) over Astros

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

The Skinny:
The Red Sox are hot. They’ve won eight of their last 10 and are showing signs of the team that won the World Series last year. I can’t see Boston coming up empty with Rick Porcello on the mound. The Red Sox are 4-1 in Porcello’s last five Sunday starts and 4-0 in Porcello’s last four starts vs. a team with a losing record. . . . This is Pile On, Part 2. If the Phillies can’t hold a lead after their manager got tossed to fire them up a bit, I just don’t see things changing on Sunday, especially with Enyel De Los Santos taking the hill. To add insult to injury, the Marlins are 4-1 in their last five road games vs. a team with a winning record. . . . Yes, I know Justin Verlander is on the mound for the Astros. But the way the Yankees have been playing, and what this series means in the American League, I think the Yankees keep rolling. They are 5-1 in JA Happ’s last six home starts vs. a team with a winning record, as well as 15-3 in Happs last 18 starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game. . . . This could be a fade pick of the day, too, as I love to fade them Mets with Jacob deGrom on the mound. It’s a bit easier today, with Cole Hamels pitching for the Cubs, who are 4-1 in Hamels' last five starts when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game.
