MLB June 16th

Phillies +116: I think the wrong team is favored in this one. Aaron Nola has been one of the best starters in baseball all season. His 2.75 xFIP is 4th best in baseball, his 9.7 K/9 is 14th in baseball, his 1.76 BB/9 is 11th best in baseball, and his 55% ground ball rate is 8th...

Padres -103: It’s not often that a matchup shakes out well for a team as bad as the Padres, but I think it does here. I mentioned a few days ago when take a Padres over that they actually hit left handers pretty well. With a 108 wRC+ against lefties that Pads come in 7th in...

Reds +110: I know the Reds are absolutely awful, but it’s tough to pass up a chance to take a left hander at plus money against the Braves. On the year the Braves have a 57 wRC+ against left handed pitching, which is dead last in baseball. Brandon Finnegan isn’t any...

1st 5 Innings Cubs/Nationals Un 4 (-125): Two of the top 15 xFIP pitchers in baseball square off today in DC. Everyone knows about Max Scherzer and how great he’s been over the years and this year is no different. Scherzer is cruising along with a 10.9 K/9 rate and a very...

Mets -132: Steven Matz was a tough luck loser in Pittsburgh in his last outing. That day he fell victim to some really bad BABIP luck as the Pirates hit .571 on balls put into play. Aside from Matz was his normal dominant self as he K’d 8 in 5 IP. On the year Matz numbers...

Orioles +121: If you’ve listened to the podcast I posted this morning you know that myself and LooseMoose6 are completely selling on Marco Estrada. Estrada is due, perhaps more than anyone else in the league for some serious regression. Right now his ERA is 2.41, but his...

Not much time today so this write up will be limited. Penguins -1.5 (+173): Frankly I’m to the point now where I believe I was dead wrong at the start of this series and the Penguins are the better team here. They have outshot the Sharks and created more pressure in each of...

Astros -126: I’m just not sold on Martin Perez at all. On the year Perez has a K/9 rate of only 5.10 and a BB/9 rate of a far too high 3.98. Both of those marks are flat out awful, and to maintain success with a K rate that low, and a BB rate that high is very hard to do....
