Dodgers @ Pirates

The Pirates sat at the very bottom of the barrel in the Odds Department entering this season but managed to hold their own before falling several wins below the .500 mark as we enter the second week of June.  Consider taking the Dodgers if you can get them at -190 or less in any game this week.  Be sure to claim that free money on every sportsbook deposit you make.

  • The Dodgers are 18-2 versus the Pirates in their last 20 meetings.
  • Over is 40-15 in the last 55 meetings in Pittsburgh

Wednesday's line was coming in at -175 or higher, so we will be on the Dodgers here.

Tony Gonsolin is set for his debut with the Dodgers this season coming off the injured list. The right-hander made three starts with Triple-A Oklahoma City during his rehab process, posting a 3.48 ERA and striking out nine over 10 1/3 innings.

Astros @ Red Sox

  • The UNDER is 11-1 in the last 11 games of this series

Jake Odorizzi (0-3, 7.16) starts for the Astros while Nathan Eovaldi (7-2, 3.78) will go for the Red Sox.

Eovaldi limited the Yankees to two runs -- one earned -- in six innings Friday in Boston's 5-2 victory and enjoyed wins in his previous starts dating back to May 16.

While the UNDER looks tempting, something has to give.  Once again the total has moved from 9.5 to 10.

Eovaldi has had issues versus Jose Altuve (5 of 15 with 3 home runs against Eovaldi) and Carlos Correa (4 of 13 with an RBI).

Go with the OVER 10 here.


Royals @ Angels

Two teams were sitting around the .500 mark.

  • Royals are 5-12 in the last 17 meetings.
