Off we go to the K picks…

Mariners @ Yankees, 7:05 pm ET

This is the first time I’m seeing low K projections for both sides at Yankees stadium since the season began. I’ve got the Yankees’ Nestor Cortes at 3-4 and the Mariners’ Tyler Anderson at ~5. I’ve seen enough of Cortes to feel more comfortable with his low projection, so I’m taking the under 4.5 and -125 from BetMGM.

Royals @ White Sox, 8:10 pm ET

More under-picks! Kansas City is throwing out Daniel Lynch tonight and the BKPM has him pegged at 2-3 K for the night. I’m taking the under 4.5 and -154 from the folks at FanDuel.

Braves @ Cardinals, 8:15 pm ET

Let’s end the day with an over pick. Atlanta has Touki Toussaint on the mound tonight and I think he’ll have a good game. My projections have him sitting at 7-8 strikeouts tonight. That’s comfortably above what FanDuel is offering, so I’ll take the over 6.5 and +116.

See you again tomorrow – same Bat-time, same Bat-place!
