YTD 8-2 +4.38 Units
2 units on Dbacks F5 +.5 -115 (2.3 to win 2)
Always tough to fade the Dodgers, but if there was ever a spot for a letdown it’s tonight. Dodgers just took 2 from the Astros in Houston, including an extra inning game last night. Dbacks have great numbers against Stripling. In 102 ABs, Dbacks have a .314 AVG and .377 OBP. Ray has also held his own against the Dodgers in his career. The Dodgers lineup has a .227 AVG against Ray in 198 ABs. I anticipate a sluggish Dodgers team to start the game after a draining 2 days in Houston and a chance for the Dbacks to get ahead early.
1 unit on Royals ml -140 (1.4 to win 1)
Pretty simple handicap here: the Royals lineup has had a ton of success against Ivan Nova. .333 AVG in 90 ABs including 12 XBH. Royals will send former 1st round pick Brady Singer to the mound to make his second career start. He went 5 allowing 3 runs with 7Ks against the Indians in his debut and I expect him to match that or better against a much weaker Tigers lineup. Royals also have the advantage in the bullpen if the game is close late.
