A 1-1 record last night.

It was a close one between the Cubs and the Nationals as it took extra innings, but the Cubs grabbed the win. There were definitely some spots where this could’ve been ended sooner (like when the Cubs had the bases loaded), but it ended with a win so that’s all that really matters here.

The one that we dropped was the Oakland Athletics against the Orioles. Again, there were opportunities here but we were just a day late on this one.

A full slate on Friday night and the system likes a couple games. I nearly went with the Rockies over the Giants again, but Tyler Anderson has been in a bad way of late and I don’t feel like we can fully trust him. I could also see the Mets over the Red Sox as the Boston offense has been struggling of late and Noah Syndergaard is on the mound. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it though because the Red Sox and the Mets might as well play in different sports based on their talent levels.

Let’s get right into today’s tips.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals Betting Tips:

The Cardinals bullpen has been a big problem for them all season and it has really been under performing of late. That could be their downfall today as they face a tough Dodgers offense that has a 106 wRC+ on the year. Jack Flaherty will be the starter and while he is having a great year, the Dodgers do have a 112 wRC+ against righties this year so he could be in for some trouble.

The Dodgers will send Walker Buehler who is having a good season with a 3.09 ERA/3.26 FIP. He’s striking out nearly 10 per game and has a 50% groundball rate on the year. I am expecting a good night out of him.

Bet Dodgers -126

Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves Betting Tips:

The Nationals season has been far from what they expected, but Max Scherzer is still Max Scherzer and I like him to do well against this Braves offense. He has a 2.31 ERA/2.66 FIP on the year and the Braves offense has been worse against righties on the year with a 95 wRC+.

Kevin Gausman goes for the Braves. He’s having a good year, but I believe he’s hittable here. The Nationals offense has been heating up of late with a 109 wRC+ over the past two weeks. Right when it doesn’t matter. Neither one of these bullpens is in great shape right now, but I expect Scherzer to go deep enough for that not to matter too much.

Bet Nationals +110
