Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Wednesday has several series being completed today with a few looking to sweep. The first place Brewers are looking to sweep the first place Giants in San Francisco while the Dodgers are looking to sweep the first place Braves and hopefully overtake first place in the NL West.

St Louis Cardinals @ Cincinnati Reds 6:40 PM ET (Game 2)

Happ (8-6) vs Gray (6-6)

JA Happ has 3 straight starts giving up less than 3 runs but has struggled on the road this season. Sonny Gray has back to back shutout starts.

Pick: Reds

Daily Fantasy picks:

Tyler O’Neill (OF)

Nick Castellanos (OF)

Kyle Farmer (C/IF)

Colorado Rockies @ Texas Rangers 2:05 PM ET

Freeland (5-6) vs Airhara (2-3)

Back the Rockies on the road behind Kyle Freeland who has 3 straight quality starts and coming off a road win in LA.

Pick: Rockies 

Daily Fantasy picks:

CJ Cron (1B)

Charlie Blackmon (OF)

DJ Peters (OF)

Nick Solak (2B/OF)

San Diego Padres @ Arizona D-Backs 3:40 PM ET

Darvish (7-8) vs Weaver (2-3)

The D-Backs have lost 5 straight but Yu Darvish has also lost 5 straight starts. Tough one to pick here, but something has to give for Darvish.

Pick: Padres 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Manny Machado (3B)

Wil Meyers (1B/OF)

Ketel Marte (2B/OF)

Dalton Varsho (C/OF)

Houston Astros @ Seattle Mariners 4:10 PM ET

Odorizzi (6-6) vs Gilbert (5-5)

The Mariners broke a 0-0 tie last night with an 8th inning grand slam. I think that momentum carries over to today.

Pick: Mariners

Daily Fantasy picks:

Alex Bregman (3B)

Carlos Correa (SS)

Abraham Toro (3B)

Ty France (1B)

Baltimore Orioles @ Toronto Blue Jays 7:07 PM ET

Harvey (6-14) vs Matz (10-7)

The Blue Jays make this tough because they keep losing games they should win. Last night’s loss broke their 3-game win streak. Steven Matz has been outstanding his last 3 starts so look for the Blue Jays to get back in the win column today.

Pick: Blue Jays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ryan Mountcastle (1B/OF)

Anthony Santander (OF)

Bo Bichette (SS)

Vlad Guerrero Jr. (1B)

New York Yankees @ Los Angeles Angels 7:07 PM ET

Cole (13-6) vs Naughton (0-1)

The Yankees have now lost 4 straight after winning 15 straight. Today should get them back on track with a win behind their Ace and one of the leagues best pitchers in Garrit Cole, against the Angels rookie starting pitcher making just his second MLB start.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Aaron Judge (OF)

Giancarlo Stanton (OF)

Garrit Cole (SP)

Shohei Ohtani (UTIL)

Oakland A’s @ Detroit Tigers 7:10 PM ET

Kaprielian (7-4) vs Peralta (3-3)

The A’s have now won 3 straight after a 7-game losing streak and look to sweep the Tigers today. They are just 1 game back in the wild card race and a win today could get them back in the #2 spot.

Pick: A’s

Daily Fantasy picks:

Matt Chapman (OF)

Yan Gomes (C)

Akil Baddoo (OF)

Boston Red Rox @ Tampa Bay Rays 7:10 PM ET

Sale (3-0) vs Rasmussen (1-1)

Chris Sale is 3-0 since his return from a long IL stint over the last 2 seasons. The Ray’s have won 9 straight games. This one is the game of the day and could go either way. I like the under.

Pick: Under 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Chris Sale (SP)

JD Martinez (OF/UTIL)

Wander Franco (SS/3B)

Joey Wendle (SS)

Cleveland Indians @ Kansas City Royals 8:10 PM ET

Allen (1-5) vs Kowar (0-2)

This game should be interesting, with a lot of runs scored. Both starters have an ERA over 7. Allen is coming off his best start with 6 innings, 1 run against Boston. I’ll take the Indians against the struggling rookie.

Pick: Indians

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jose Ramirez (3B)

Ahmed Rosario (2B/SS)

Salvador Perez (C)

Whitt Merrifield (2B)

Chicago Cubs @ Minnesota Twins 8:10 PM ET

Steele (2-2) vs Ryan (0-0)

Joe Ryan is making his first MLB start for the Twins and has solid minor league stats, logging 92 k’s in 66 innings. I’ll lean towards the Twins bats at home against starter Justin Steele.

Pick: Twins/Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Patrick Wisdom (3B)

Jorge Polanco (SS)

Josh Donaldson (3B)

ittsburgh Pirates @ Chicago White Sox 8:10 PM ET

Kranick (1-2) vs Rodon (10-5)

I’m not going to overthink this, take the first White Sox at home behind their Carlos Rodon against the NL Central’s worst team.

Pick: White Sox -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ke’Bryan Hayes (3B)

Jose Abreu (1B)

Yoan Moncada (3B)

Milwaukee Brewers @ San Francisco Giants 9:45 PM ET

Anderson (4-8) vs Gausman (12-5)

The Brewers have dominated the first two games of this series but it’s hard to see the Giants getting swept at home especially with their Ace on the mound today.

Pick: Giants 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Christian Yelich (OF)

Buster Posey (C)

Kris Bryant (3B)

Atlanta Braves @ Los Angeles Dodgers 10:10 PM ET

Fried (11-7) vs Scherzer (12-4)

Two of the NL’s best pitchers square off tonight in LA where the Dodgers are looking to sweep the Braves and gain even closer to the NL West lead. Max Scherzer faces a familiar foe with Atlanta. This should be an incredible game and pitchers duel.

Pick: Dodgers/Under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Max Fried (SP)

Freddie Freeman (1B)

Max Scherzer (SP)

Mookie Betts (OF)
