St Louis Cardinals @ Pittsburgh Pirates 7:05 PM ET

Happ (7-6) vs Peters (0-1)

The Cardinals need to get back on track to stay in the wild card hunt. Not a great pitching matchup so take the over.

Pick: Over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Tommy Edman (2B)

Paul Goldschmidt (1B)

Chris Moran (3B)

Tampa Bay Rays @ Baltimore Orioles 7:05 PM ET

McClanahan (8-4) vs Harvey (6-13)

The Orioles have won two straight now, but that streak should end today when they take on the first place and AL best Rays who have won 4 straight and 8 of 10.

Pick: Rays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Wander Franco (SS)

Brandon Lowe (2B)

Cedric Mullins (OF)

Anthony Santander (OF)

Arizona D-Backs @ Philadelphia Phillies 7:05 PM ET

Widener (2-1) vs Nola (7-7)

The Phillies have lost 8 of 10, lost Ryhs Hoskins for the season, and are falling well behind a playoff spot. Today they have their Ace in Nola, and need this win or their season could very well be lost.

Pick: Phillies 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ketel Marte (2B/OF)

Dalton Varsho (C)

Bryce Harper (OF)

Boston Red Sox @ Cleveland Indians 7:10 PM ET

Rodriguez (9-7) vs Allen (1-5)

The Indians have been really good at home and have won 7 of 10. As good as Boston is, their starting pitching after Chris Sale is suspect to giving up a lot of runs.

Pick: Indians

Daily Fantasy picks:

Xander Bogaerts (SS)

Jarren Duran (OF)

Jose Ramirez (3B)

Frammil Reyes (OF)

Washington Nationals @ New York Mets 7:10 PM ET

Espino (3-4) vs Hill (6-5)

The Mets have found themselves in a lot of trouble. Losers of 8 of 10 and well out of a playoff spot. This is a must win series with a much needed game 1 win.

Pick: Mets

Daily Fantasy picks:

Juan Soto (OF)

Pete Alonso (1B)

JD Davis (3B)

Toronto Blue Jays @ Detroit Tigers 7:10 PM ET

Matz (10-7) vs Manning (3-5)

The Blue Jays have struggled the second half but are still in the wild card hunt. This is a must win series to get them back on track.

Pick: Blue Jays

Daily Fantasy picks:

Marcus Semien (2B)

Teoscar Hernandez (OF)

Jonathan Schoop (1B/2B)

Cincinnati Reds @ Miami Marlins 7:10 PM ET

Miley (10-4) vs Thompson (2-5)

The Reds are the much better team and currently hold the second wild card spot. Reds are looking to get on a roll starting with this series.

Pick: Reds -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Tyler Naquin (OF)

Joey Votto (1B)

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

San Francisco Giants @ Atlanta Braves 7:20 PM ET

Gausman (12-5) vs Fried (11-7)

This is probably the series of the weekend as it’s two first place teams and both of which have won 8 of 10. Max Fried has won 3 straight starts and is coming off a Complete Game Shutout. I think the Braves can take game 1.

Pick: Braves

Daily Fantasy picks:

Kris Byrant (3B)

Max Fried (SP)

Freddie Freeman (1B)

Ozzie Albies (2B)

Houston Astros @ Texas Rangers 8:05 PM ET

Odorizzi (6-6) vs Otto (0-0)

Glenn Otto is making his first MLB start, and does have good minor league numbers. That said, this is a last place team vs a first place team with a pitcher making his first career start, take the Astros.

Pick: Astros

Daily Fantasy picks:

Alex Bregman (3B)

Jose Altvue (2B)

Isiah Kiner-Falefa (C/SS)

Chicago Cubs @ Chicago White Sox 8:10 PM ET

Thompson (3-3) vs Keuchel (8-7)

A classic Crosstown Chicago Rivalry takes place on the southside with the struggling Cubs taking on the first place White Sox. Not a great pitching matchup to start, so I like the over too.

Pick: White Sox, over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Patrick Widsom (3B)

Eloy Jimenez (OF)

Jose Abreu (1B)

Milwaukee Brewers @ Minnesota Twins 8:10 PM ET

Lauer (4-4) vs Albers (0-0)

Eric Lauer has been good when he starts for the Brewers, but this game worries me a bit as the Twins have been crushing the ball, especially against lefties. Take the home team.

Pick: Twins

Daily Fantasy picks:

Nick Solak (2B)

Frammil Reyes (OF)

Jose Ramirez (3B)

San Diego Padres @ Los Angeles Angels 9:38 PM ET

Musgrove (8-8) vs TBD

The Padres are in complete disarray, losers of 4 straight, swept by their rival Dodgers, and now currently out of a playoff spot. This is a must win series starting with one of their best pitchers.

Pick: Padres

Daily Fantasy picks:

Manny Machado (3B)

Jake Cronenworth (2B)

Shohei Ohtani (UTIL)

New York Yankees @ Oakland Athletics 9:40 PM ET

Cole (12-6) vs Manaea (8-8)

The Yankees have won 13 straight after winning a very good game last night in which they saw their 6-run lead vanish, only to take the lead with two outs in the top of the 9th. Sean Manaea has really struggled for the A’s, and is up against the Yankees Ace.

Pick: Yankees

Daily Fantasy picks:

Garrit Cole (SP)

Aaron Judge (OF)

Giancarlo Stanton (OF)

Jed Lowrie (2B)

Kansas City Royals @ Seattle Mainers 10:10 PM ET

Bubic (4-6) vs Gilbert (5-5)

The Royals have won 7 of 10 and came back to beat the Mariners last night in Seattle. Rookie Logan Gilbert has been hammered his last 2 starts while Kris Bubic was hammered just two starts ago as well. I really like the over and the Royals again.

Pick: Royals, over

Daily Fantasy picks:

Salvador Perez (C)

Whit Merrifield (2B)

Mitch Haniger (OF)

Ty France (1B)

Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Dodgers 10:10 PM ET

Freeland (4-6) vs TBD

The Dodgers have won 9 of 10 and take on a Rockies team who is historically bad on the road. Kyle Freeland has pitched well against LA but LA is just too hot right now.

Pick: Dodgers -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Trea Turner (2B)

Justin Turner (3B)

Will Smith (C)
