New York Mets at Miami Marlins Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Rich Hill 111 102 93 96 98 12 91 11
MIA   81 117 85 87 25 75 26
Sandy Alcantara 87 77 100 75 91 4 73 1
NYM   88 105 92 96 16 127 3

I’m not buying on the Mets.

Sandy Alcantara has been awesome at home this season. He has a 3.36 ERA/3.56 FIP on the season and has done well keeping walks and homeruns down. The Mets also struggle in both of those categories.

Rich Hill has been very hittable this season and worse on the road. He has a 3.92 ERA/4.57 FIP on the year. The Marlins offense only has a 86 wRC+ against lefties on the year, but Hill’s road struggles should be enough to push them over the hump.

Pick: Bet Marlins First 5 Innings Moneyline

Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Shane McClanahan 80 80 121 87 86 1 114 24
BOS   111 98 97 107 5 124 5
Nathan Eovaldi 69 63 107 50 95 9 105 18
TBR   111 109 110 109 4 132 1

Nathan Eovaldi has been awesome this season with a 3.73 ERA/2.92 FIP. He’s made three starts against the Rays this season. In two of them, he went seven innings and only allowed one run. In the other, he gave up five runs. I’m hoping for the former here. He’s been much better at home on the season.

Shane McClanahan has a 3.76 ERA/3.27 FIP on the season so he’s no slouch either. I just don’t have him pegged as good as Eovaldi here. The Red Sox have a 104 wRC+ against lefties on the season.

Pick: Bet Red Sox First 5 Innings Moneyline

Los Angeles Dodgers at St. Louis Cardinals Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Mitch White 97 96 104 114 91 4 102 16
STL   93 99 88 93 19 111 9
Adam Wainwright 84 71 97 69 100 14 99 15
LAD   106 103 108 106 6 81 24

This is a straight up offense pick. Dodgers offense very good, Cardinals offense very bad. Not to take anything away from his numbers, but looking at his game log and I’m just not seeing a lot of difficult match-ups like this. Two games against San Francisco is about as close as it gets for him and he allowed seven runs over those first two starts.

The Dodgers could do that kind of thing here. They have a 108 wRC+ on the season against righties.

Adam Wainwright has been solid all season with a 2.91 ERA/3.50 FIP.

Mitch White is the starter for the Dodgers here, but I’m not sure he goes longer than four innings. The Dodgers bullpen has been pretty solid for the season behind him. With the Cardinals having just an 89 wRC+ against righties on the season, I’m not too worried.

Pick: Bet Dodgers Moneyline
