Took a tough L last night, the Blue Jays got spanked but today is a new day. Still early in the week so let us get right into tonight’s plays.
New York Mets vs Chicago Cubs: Under 9 -115
Tonight we will see a pitching matchup of Jacob deGrom vs Cole Hamels. deGrom has been one of the best pitchers all season but he has gotten no run support. The Mets are one of the worst teams in all of baseball and they have wasted deGroms starts this year. deGrom is 2-2 with a 3.47 ERA vs the Cubs in six career starts.
Hamels since joining the Cubs is 4-0 with a 0.79 ERA. I expect Hamels to continue this streak of dominance because the Mets have been abysmal this year. The Cubs offense has been hot as of late but facing deGrom will be a tough matchup to put up a lot of runs.
Recent trends have seen the under go 7-2-1 in deGrom’s last 10 road starts. I like the under tonight.
Miami Marlins vs Boston Red Sox: Run in the 1st Yes -140
We will see a pitching matchup of Jose Urena vs Brian Johnson. Urena has an ERA of 12.50 on the year and Johnson has an ERA of 4.12. Tonight will be Urena’s first start off of suspension.
The Red Sox offense went silent in Tampa but I expect them to come alive in the first. Off day yesterday and a home game tonight the boys will be buzzing. Johnson is a streaky pitcher so he could come off slow tonight the weather is hot in Boston. I expect a run to score in the 1st.
Record to Date: 44-38
