(MLB) LA Dodgers vs. Milwaukee, 08/17/2022 8:10 PM
Total: 8.50 | -116.00 Under
This is a 1* FREE PLAY on the UNDER Dodgers/Brewers.

The Dodgers have to be feeling confident here handing the ball to Tony Gonsolin because he's 14-1 with a 2.24 ERA and 0.89 WHIP. He also has a monster 105 to 32 strikeout to walk ratio.

And the Brewers won't be rolling over here obviously either with their ace on the mound Eric Lauer, as he's 8-4 with a 3.64 ERA and 116 to 42 strikeout to walk ratio.

Considering the talent level of these starting pitchers, and also taking into account their current overall form, I'm going to recommend a second look at the UNDER in this one.

Good luck, NP
(MLB) Tampa Bay vs. NY Yankees, 08/17/2022 7:05 PM
Money Line: 121.00 Tampa Bay (Away)
T.M. Selection: Tampa Bay Rays.

I like the Tampa Bay Rays to win this game against the New York Yankees on Wednesday. The Rays have looked really good in their games lately winning 4 games in a row now. The Yankees have looked terrible in their games lately losing 3 in a row now, but they have been losing a lot of games over the last 2 weeks and I expect them to continue in their slump here. Their offense has looked terrible lately, they have put up 1 run total in 3 games in a row now and if it wasn't for an error in last night's game, they could have been blanked in 3 games in a row. Corey Kluber (7-7, 4.40 ERA) is up for the Rays here and he has been really up and down this year and is coming off 5 really bad starts in a row, but I think he will bounce back here and he hasn't given up more than 1 earned run in both of his starts against the Yankees this year either. Domingo German (1-2, 4.18 ERA) is up for the Yankees here and he has looked a lot better in his starts lately but I see the Rays putting up some runs here with their offense looking a lot better as of late and I don't trust this Yankees offense to stay competitive in this game since they have looked so bad for a while now. I like the Rays to win this game.

T.M. Prediction: 4-2 Rays.

Tampa Bay at N.Y. Yankees 7:10 ET
Yankees over Rays- Jordan Montgomery where are you, Joey Gallo where are you, you are both missed as you meant more than 'numbers.' New York hasn't been able to beat anyone of late losing 10 of their last 12 but tonight's starter for the 'Bronx Dud-bombers' Domingo German (1-2, 4.18 ERA) knows something about beatings as they cost him a year. Rays starter Corey Kluber (7-7, 4.40) won 18, 18 and 20 games for the Indians before parting with teammate Trevor Bauer and he has won just seven games in the past three seasons enter 2022. Rays 1-4 in New York entering this series and Yanks are 39-13 in their last 52 home games. Take N.Y. YANKEES!

(MLB) NY Mets vs. Atlanta, 08/17/2022 7:20 PM
Money Line: -148.00 NY Mets (Away)
In Max we trust. That's really what this handicap boils down to - backing Max Scherzer against Jake Odorizzi.

Odorizzi is on his fourth team in six years. He's become a journeyman, innings-eater. He has a 4.15 ERA in two starts for the Braves since coming over from Houston. The Mets drew Odorizzi in his Atlanta debut on Aug. 6. New York got to him for three runs (two earned) in 4 2/3 innings.

Scherzer isn't slowing down at 38. The future Hall of Famer is 8-2 with a 1.93 ERA. Scherzer faced Atlanta 11 days ago. He blanked the Braves for seven innings while striking out 11 and not allowing a walk. The Braves couldn't hit Scherzer then and I'm betting they can't do it now either.

My free play is on the NY Yankees at 7:05 ET.

The Tampa Bay Rays have taken the first two of this three-game series at Yankee Stadium, giving them FOUR straight wins (team is 8-4 over its last 12 games). Meanwhile, the Yankees are in a 2-11 skid and are only 8-17 since holding a 64-28 record at the All-Star break. The good news for Yankee fans is that New York still owns a NINE-game lead over Tampa Bay in the AL East (Rays own the second wild card spot, a half-game back of the Mariners). The Rays look to complete a three-game sweep behind Corey Kluber (7-7, 4.40 ERA), while the Yankees look to avoid the sweep by sending Domingo German (1-2, 4.18 ERA) to the mound.

Kluber is a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner, but he has dealt with a variety of injuries over the past few years that have limited his availability. The Rays took a chance on him by signing him to a one-year, $8 million deal, hoping he could provide leadership as well as some productive innings on the mound. Kluber has had an up-and-down season so far and is coming off allowing SEVEN runs on 10 hits in 5.2 innings in a Friday loss. However, Kluber is 5-3 with a 2.21 ERA in 10 career starts against the Yankees, including posting an 0.75 ERA in two starts against New York this season.

German was placed on administrative leave by MLB, pending an investigation of suspected domestic violence back on September 19, 2019. It was confirmed that he would not be eligible to participate in any baseball action for the remainder on September 25. His 18-4 record that season was the best win–loss percentage of any MLB pitcher in 2019, at .818. German was suspended for the first 63 games of 2020, which was cut to 60 games because of COVID. German made 22 appearances last season (18 starts), finishing with a 4–5 record and a 4.58 ERA. He began the 2022 season on the 60-day injured list due to right shoulder impingement syndrome. He returned on July 21, 2022, making the start against the Houston Astros, where he gave up five ERs in just THREE innings. However, he allowed two ERs in 4.2 innings in his second start, two ERs in five innings in his third, one ER over five innings in his fourth and one run on five hits in a season-high six innings last Friday in a no-decision against the Boston Red Sox.

The Rays are within single digits of the division lead for the first time since June 13. They were 13 games out at the break and faced a 15 1/2-game deficit after being swept in Cincinnati July 8-10. Yes, the Yankees are in a 'funk,' but I'll back them to avoid the home sweep here, behind German, who has allowed TWO runs or less in FOUR straight starts.

Good luck...Larry
