Kansas City Royals @ Chicago Cubs 2:20 PM ET

Keller (7-12) vs Davies (6-9)

Two struggling teams, however the Royals won their series vs the Astro’s and Zach Davies has struggled for the Cubs. Taking the Royals.

Pick: Royals Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Whit Merrifield (2B)

Salvador Perez (C)

Frank Swindel (OF)

Atlanta Braves @ Baltimore Orioles 7:05 PM ET

Fried (10-7) vs Akin (0-7)

The Orioles have lost 15 straight and face the Braves who have won 6 straight and 9 of 10. Backed by Max Fried who has won 3 straight, this should be an easy one for the Braves.

Pick: Braves -1.5

Ryan Mountcastle (1B/3B)

Minnesota Twins @ New York Yankees 7:05 PM ET

Barnes (0-2) vs Cortes (1-1)

The Yankees have been one of baseballs best teams since the All-Star break and today with rookie Nestor Cortes starting, the should get another win as they are feeling extremely confident.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jorge Polanco (SS)

Giancarlo Stanton (UTIL)

DJ LeMaheiu (1B/2B)

Detroit Tigers @ Toronto Blue Jays 7:07 PM ET

Alexander (2-2) vs Ray (9-5)

Both teams have struggled lately but the Tigers losing 4 straight and the Blue Jays back home is a recipe for the Blue Jays to get back on track.

Pick: Blue Jays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jonathan Schoop (1B/2B)

Marcus Semien (SS)

Teoscar Hernandez (OF)

Los Angeles Angels @ Cleveland Indians 7:10 PM ET

Barria (2-1) vs TBD

The Angels have won 3 straight and have their offense clicking. Taking the Angels to continue this trend with the Indians yet to name their starter.

Pick: A’s Win 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Shohei Ohtani (UTIL)

Jared Walsh (1B)

Jo Adell (OF)

Jose Ramirez (3B)

Texas Rangers @ Boston Red Sox 7:10 PM ET

Dunning (5-7) vs Sale (1-0)

Both teams have lost 3 straight but the Rangers traveling east after a crushing loss to the Mariners yesterday, along with facing Chris Sale; this is the game for the Red Sox to get back in the win column.

Chicago White Sox @ Tampa Bay Rays 7:10 PM ET

Giolito (9-9) vs Wacha (2-4)

Not a great pitching matchup as Lucas Giolito is hit and miss between good starts and bad starts while Michael Wacha has a 6+ era the last month. I like the Rays at home who have won 4 straight.

Pick: Rays Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Yoan Moncada (3B)

Tim Anderson (SS)

Brandon Lowe (2B)

Wander Franco (SS)

Miami Marlins @ Cincinnati Reds 

Hernandez (0-0) vs Gray (4-6)

Elieser Hernandez is making his second start since his return from the IL but has a tough task on the road against the Reds. Sonny Gray is still struggling to get passed 5 innings each start, so this could go either way. I’ll take the Marlins in an upset.

Pick: Marlins Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

Joey Votto (1B)

Jonathan India (2B)

Seattle Mariners @ Houston Astros 8:10 PM ET

Kikuchi (7-6) vs McCullers (9-4)

This is a tough one because the Mariners have won 3 straight and 8 of 10 while the Astros just lost 2 of 3 to the Royals. Lance McCullers is the better pitcher but it’s hard to pick against the Mariners right now even though this is a good time for the Astros to get back on track. I’m going with the upset and taking the Mariners.

Pick: Mariners Win 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Mitch Haniger (OF)

Jose Altuve (2B)

Carlos Correa (SS)

Washington Nationals @ Milwaukee Brewers 8:10 PM ET

TBD vs Anderson (4-6)

It’s tough to pick against the Brewers at home even though Brett Anderson has struggled lately. The Brewers offense should handle this on though with the Nats not naming a starter yet.

Pick: Brewers -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Victor Robles (OF)

Willy Adames (SS)

Christian Yelich (OF)

Pittsburgh Pirates @ St Louis Cardinals 8:15 PM ET

Keller (3-10) vs Mikolas (0-0)

The Cardinals have won 7 of 10 and the Pirates have lost 9 of 10. Take the Cardinals at home.

Pick: Cardinals -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ke’Bryan Hayes (3B)

Tyler O’Neill (OF)

Tommy Edman (2B)

Arizona D-Backs @ Colorado Rockies 8:40 PM ET

Gilbert (1-1) vs Gomber (9-7)

This should be a fun game. Tyler Gilbert is making his first start since his no hitter but facing this Rockies team in Colorado is extremely difficult. Austin Gomber has struggled in 2 of his last 3 starts. Since each has won 3 straight, I’ll take a back and forth game with the Over.

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ketel Marte (2B/SS)

Charlie Blackmon (OF)

Trevor Story (SS)

San Francisco Giants @ Oakland Athletics 9:40 PM ET

Wood (10-3) vs Kaprielian (6-4)

The battle of the bay begins in Oakland between two of each teams consistent #3 starter. Both should keep runs off the board with this game coming down to the bullpens late. I like the under.

Pick: Under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Kris Byant (3B/OF)

Brandon Crawford (SS)

Matt Chapman (3B)

Starling Marte (OF)

Philadelphia Phillies @ San Diego Padres 10:10 PM ET

Moore (2-3) vs Snell (6-4)

It’s hard to trust either of these left handed pitchers right now even though Matt Moore just threw 6 innings of no hit baseball. Both teams are struggling though each having won just 3 of their last 10.

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ronald Torreyes (SS/3B)

Tommy Pham (OF)

Jake Cronenworth (2B)

New York Mets @ Los Angeles Dodgers 10:10 PM ET

Carrasco (0-1) vs Buehler (12-2)

This is an obvious choice as the Dodgers have won 7 straight and 9 of 10 and have the leading Cy Young candidate, Walker Buehler, starting on the mound. Take the Dodgers easily at home.

Pick: Dodgers -1.5

JD Davis (3B)

Max Muncy (1B)

Cody Bellinger (OF)

Corey Seager (SS)
