Miami Marlins at Colorado Rockies Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Jesus Luzardo 147 198 98 112 88 3 93 14
COL   83 101 88 77 30 96 19
Austin Gomber 90 107 102 83 110 27 106 20
MIA   82 115 83 87 26 96 19

I’m not sure how many times I have picked the Rockies this season, but it has to be in the single digits. We’re going to tip them here for the first five though.

Austin Gomber is a pretty solid pitcher with a 4.04 ERA/4.02 FIP on the year. The Marlins are pretty bad against lefties with a 84 wRC+. Plus, they traded away a lot of their good right handed hitters like Starling Marte.

Jesus Luzardo is not good and has been much worse on the road. The Rockies offense isn’t great against lefties either, but a 90 wRC+ is much better than an 84.

Pick: Bet Rockies -0.5 First 5 Innings

Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Taylor Widener 134 165 97 112 118 30 117 27
SDP   100 98 107 102 10 99 16
Yu Darvish 90 117 124 66 92 5 66 1
ARI   74 105 97 85 27 78 26

Yu Darvish has a 3.48 ERA/3.77 FIP on the season. He has a big strikeout rate, but he’s struggled with giving up homeruns. The Diamondbacks are one of the weakest teams in baseball for hitting homeruns so he should benefit there. The Padres bullpen behind him is one of the best in baseball and they have been doing well overall of late. I have the Diamondbacks as the 27th best offense in baseball, nothing to be a afraid of.

Taylor Widener has a 5.05 ERA/5.60 FIP on the season and has been worse in his road starts.

-150 is pretty expensive for a game where we are laying the runs, but this just looks like an absolute lock.

Pick: Bet Padres -1.5

USA: Best Odds: -150 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
Everyone Else: Best Odds: 1.66 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus

Los Angeles Angels at Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Jaime Barria 117 72 41 113 103 18 68 2
LAD   115 102 109 109 3 102 13
Julio Urias 82 98 113 53 95 9 100 17
LAA   108 98 83 104 7 77 27

Two really good offenses going at it here. Julio Urias is good, but he’ll have his hands full with the Angels offense today. They have a 114 wRC+ on the season against lefties.

Jamie Barria is not so good and I’m not expecting much from him today. He’s only made four appearances this season, but his numbers are right in line with his career 4.43 ERA/5.02 FIP. He is hittable and the Dodgers have a 112 wRC+ for the year against righties.

Both bullpens are average and this total is on the low end. I think they can easily go over.

Pick: Bet Dodgers/Angels Over 8.5

USA: Best Odds: -115 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
Everyone Else: Best Odds: 1.86 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
