Chicago Cubs @ Cincinnati Reds 12:35 PM ET

Sampson (0-0) vs Mahle (10-3)

The Cubs ended their losing streak yesterday but the Reds will bounce back here behind Tyler Mahle who was outstanding his last start and taking on a pitcher making his first start.

Pick: Reds -1.5

Cleveland Indians @ Minnesota Twins 1:10 PM ET

Plesac (7-4) vs Thorpe (0-2)

This game could go either way as both teams are playing .500 baseball lately. Zack Plesac is a bit better on the road than home and the better starter here. Taking the Indians to win a close one.

Pick: Indians Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jose Ramirez (3B)

Frammil Reyes (OF)

Jorge Polanco (2B/SS)

San Diego Padres @ Colorado Rockies 3:10 PM ET

Arrieta (5-11) vs Gonzalez (3-6)

The Rockies won again last night off a late inning game winning home run. This is Jake Arrieta’s first start as a Padre and not a great place to start in Colorado. I like the over a lot and for the Rockies to upset the Padres again.

Pick: Rockies Win, Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Manny Machado (3B)

CJ Cron (1B)

Charlie Blackmon (OF)

Connor Joe (1B/OF)

New York Mets @ San Francisco Giants 3:45 PM ET

Megill (1-2) vs DeSclafani (11-5)

The Giants won the first two games of this series and the Mets have now lost 5 straight. They desperately need this win and it’s their best chance lately as DeSclafani has been hit hard his 3 starts.

Pick: Mets Win 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Pete Alonso (1B)

Kris Bryant (3B/OF)

Brandon Crawford (SS)

Toronto Blue Jays @ Washington Nationals 4:05 PM ET

Berrios (8-6) vs Gray (0-1)

Jose Berrios was hit hard his last start but still has been a great addition to the Blue Jays pitching staff. This is a good bounce back game for Berrios but on the flip side, Josiah Gray has pitched great his last 3 outings. I like this to be low scoring and the Blue Jays win.

Pick: Blue Jays Win, under

Daily Fantasy Picks:

Teoscar Hernandez (OF)

Marcus Semien (2B/SS)

Victor Robles (OF)

Boston Red Sox @ New York Yankees 1:05 PM ET

Pivetta (9-5) vs Heaney (7-8)

The Yankees have been one of baseballs bests teams since the All Star Break but Andrew Heaney has not pitched well for them since coming over via trade. Nick Pivetta for the Red Sox has been hit hard by the Yankees this season. I like the over and the Yankees to win again.

Pick: Yankees Win, over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Kike Hernandez (2B/OF)

Xander Bogaerts (SS)

Anthony Rizzo (1B)

Joey Gallo (OF)

Los Angeles Angels @ Detroit Tigers 7:10 PM ET

Ohtani (7-1) vs Skubal (8-10)

The Tigers should struggle to put together some runs against Ohtani as they are a high strikeout team. Angels win a second in a row in this series.

Pick: Angels -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Shohei Ohtani (SP)

Jo Adell (OF)

Jonathan Schoop (1B/2B)

Baltimore Orioles @ Tampa Bay Rays 7:10 PM ET

Watkins (2-4) vs Head (1-0)

Maybe this is the Orioles best chance to end their 13-game losing streak, but I still wouldn’t risk it. Take the Rays at home in a bullpen/opener game.

Pick: Rays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Cedric Mullins (OF)

Wander Franco (SS)

Brandon Lowe (2B/OF)

Atlanta Braves @ Miami Marlins 7:10 PM ET

Morton (11-4) vs Luzardo (4-5)

The Braves lost last night in a close one but will win this 3rd game of this series behind Charlie Morton who has been consistent all season. Jesus Luzardo is still trying to find his form in Miami and has yet to pitch well for them.

Pick: Braves-1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Austin Riley (3B)

Charlie Morton (SP)

Dansby Swanson (SS)

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

Milwaukee Brewers @ St Louis Cardinals 7:45 PM ET

Peralta (9-3) vs Flaherty (9-1)

This is the game of the day and pitching matchup of the day. Last night’s game hit the under as predicted and this one should as well. Two of the NL’s best young starters square off in this inter-division battle.

Pick: Under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Freddy Peralta (SP)

Willy Adames (SS)

Jack Flaherty (SP)

Nolan Arenado (3B)

Seattle Mariners @ Texas Rangers 8:05 PM ET

Gonzales (4-5) vs Foltynewicz (2-11)

Both starters have faired well their last two outings but it’s not enough to trust either one. Marco Gonzalez did however throw a complete game with 1 run last time facing the Rangers, so I will take the Mariners here.

Pick: Mariners Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Mitch Haniger (OF)

Isiah Kiner-Falefa (C/SS)

Houston Astros @ Kansas City Royals 8:10 PM ET

Greinke (11-3) vs Singer (3-8)

The Royals evened the series last night but look for the Astros to take this one behind Greinke facing his original team. I think Greinke will love pitching again at Kauffman Stadium.

Pick: Astros -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Yordan Alvarez (DH)

Carlos Correa (SS)

Zack Greinke  (SP)

Salvador Perez (C)

Oakland Athletics @ Chicago White Sox 8:10 PM ET

Irvin (8-11) vs Lynn (10-3)

The A’s are struggling all of a sudden, losers of 3 straight and not putting up much of a fight against the White Sox. They now face Chicago’s best pitcher in Lance Lynn. Taking the White Sox to win again.

Pick: White Sox Win 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Matt Chapman (3B)

Eloy Jimenez (OF)

Luis Robert (OF)

Philadelphia Phillies @ Arizona D-Backs 9:40 PM ET

Suarez (5-3) vs Castellanos (0-1)

The won the first game of this series and now have been playing .500 baseball their last 10 games. The Phillies need this one to keep pace with the Braves and not let the Mets hang near them.

Pick: Phillies -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

JT Realmuto (C/1B)

Andrew McCutchen (OF

Josh Rojas (SS)

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Los Angeles Dodgers 10:10 PM ET 

Brubaker (4-12) vs TBD

The Dodgers have won 5 straight and 9 of 10. This series they’ve gone with a hodgepodge of starters and will most likely do the same today. It won’t matter as the Dodgers offense should carry them.

Pick: Dodgers -1.5 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ke’Bryan Hayes (3B)

AJ Pollock (OF)

Chris Taylor (OF)

Corey Seager (SS)
