MINNESOTA (-286) JOSE BERRIOS The number 1 ranked offence takes on one of the worst offences at home with Jose Berrios averaging 22.24 DK pts, 3 wins from 5 games and facing one of the worst pitchers on the slate with a 28.3% K% rate at home. They have a huge 3 runs advantage and can justify strong favouritism tonight with the likes of NELSON CRUZ (OF) 4.7k, EDDIE ROSARIO (OF) 5.6k and JORGE POLANCO (SS) 5k looking like a strong stack for the Twins on the earlier or all-day slate.
HOUSTON (-130) BRAD PEACOCK (pictured) can have the measure of Cleveland tonight after 2 poor outings, playing back at home on the earlier slate. The pitcher has an excellent 37% strike-out rate against right-handed batters and excels with a 29.3% K% rate at home. The likes of ALEX BREGMAN (3B) 4.7k, JOSH REDDICK (OF) 4.3k and GEORGE SPRINGER (OF) 5.4k can all get runs against Shane Bieber who had a shocking outing last time, allowing 7 runs over less than 3 innings last time.
WASHINGTON (-167) With STEPHEN STRASBOURG pitching at home, they can beat the 2nd-lowest ranked offence on the slate in San Diego with Eric Lauer a real pitching mismatch. ANTHONY RENDON (3B) 5.5k is back in the lineup tonight and along with YAN GOMES (C) 3.5k and BRIAN DOZIER (2B) 3.9k can get some runs on the board with a run advantage of 1.08.
LOS ANGELES DODGERS (-205) CLAYTON KERSHAW can get back in winning form against the lowest-ranked offence at home to Pittsburgh who have the average Trevor Richards pitching. The superb CODY BELLINGER (1B/OF) 5.8k hit another homer last night and can do so again. Along with JUSTIN TURNER (3B) (3.7k), MAX MUNCY (1B/3B) 4.2k & A.J. POLLOCK (OF) 3.7k, they look a solid stack and can rank up the runs tonight with a run advantage of 1.7
The accumulator pays 5.66/1 with Betfair and again throw in 4 trebles.
TEAM AND PITCHER RATINGS
As well as the above mentioned pitches and batters there are a few of note tonight.
Tyler Mahle has a 6.22 ERA against lefties so MATT CARPENTER (3B) 4.1k is of major interest in the leadoff spot for St Louis Cardinals and DEXTER FOWLER (OF) 3.9K is another lefty to note.
Jorge Lopez has a 5.64 ERA against lefties so BRIAN GOODWIN (OF) 4.3k and KOLE KALHOUN (OF) 4.2k can take full advantage for the LA Angels tonight
NICK CASTELLANOS (OF) 4.2k can mash Reynaldo Lopez who struggles against right-handers
RHYS HOSKINS (1B) 5.1k can also take advantage of Trevor Richards poor record against right-handed hitters.
HUNTER DOZIER (1B/3B) 4.6 for Kansas City can get some runs agains Jaime Barria, he is one of the few KC bats I like tonight as he is swinging the bat well at the moment.
The White Sox can win tonight against Detroit, I would have put them up as an outright bet but there are weather concerns so check this closer to the start time. The average Detroit pitcher Ryan Carpenter who struggles against righties in particular with an 8.27 ERA and the lowest strike-rate on the slate so both JOSE ABREU (1B) 4.6k and YOAN MONCADA (3B) 5.3k can get some runs.
