Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue Jays Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Collin McHugh 53 38 139 66 87 1 87 2
TOR   114 89 97 112 2 167 1
Alek Manoah 100 88 114 99 104 21 105 21
TBR   110 109 110 108 4 126 3

This is a bullpen game for the Rays and there are few teams I trust more to do that than them. Collin McHugh has been outstanding, but he’s only going to go about two innings. The Jays offense is absolutely on fire of late, but I think the Rays can play the match-ups well enough over those next three innings to get the advantage here.

Alek Manoah is about as average as they come. He draws a tough match-up against this Rays offense that has a 111 wRC+ against righties on the season and is hot of late with a 126 wRC+. They aren’t quite as hot as the Jays are, but they have the much more favorable pitching match-up.

St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Adam Wainwright 84 71 97 69 99 12 98 11
NYM   88 106 92 96 16 125 4
Rich Hill 111 102 93 96 99 12 100 15
STL   93 100 88 93 20 91 19

The Mets have been getting it done lately, but I don’t like this match-up for them whatsoever.

Rich Hill is past his prime and has a 3.82 ERA/4.41 FIP on the season. He’s firmly below average and facing a Cardinals offense that is very much above average against left-handed pitching.

Adam Wainwright takes the hill for the Cardinals and he has been excellent all season with a 2.98 ERA/3.51 FIP. The Mets have hit well of late, but they’ve struggled against righties this season with a 96 wRC+.

Pick: Bet Cardinals Moneyline

Boston Red Sox at Seattle Mariners Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Eduardo Rodriguez 84 98 117 78 95 9 95 8
SEA   93 111 106 92 22 100 14
Logan Gilbert 88 103 112 60 87 1 86 1
BOS   110 98 97 106 5 105 11

The margins here are razor thing, but this is playoff baseball for all intents and purposes, and I think these teams will play this game as such. Boston is tied for the Wild Card right now with the Yankees breathing down their neck at one game back. The Mariners sit three back so this series could decide the whole season for them.

Logan Gilbert has been great (but unlucky) for them this year with a 5.10 ERA/3.70 FIP. The strikeouts are there and he keeps the walks down, he just needs some better left on base percentage luck.

Eduardo Rodriguez has been huge (but unlucky) for Boston this season with a 5.15 ERA/3.54 FIP. His BABIP is a ridiculous .358. Tonight is a good night to see some regression as the Mariners have just a 92 wRC+ against lefties on the season.

Pick: Bet Red Sox/Mariners Under 8 Runs

USA: Best Odds: -123 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
Everyone Else: Best Odds: 1.81 at SportsBetting.ag – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
