MLB Saturday

29-25 +6,670

Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets
Coming off offensive outburst and continuing to power over the Mets, Philadelphia enters game two of the series with veteran lefty Cole Hammels.  Holding 3.52 ERA over 61 innings on the road Cole is a losing pitcher. However he is heating up and his recent 3 starts have his WHIP below 1.00 in domination and Mets are not hitting lefties. New York Mets sending Zack Wheeler with 28 innings is holding his own and is a winning pitcher, so far, making a case for the home dog Mets. However Philadelphia Phillies are playing at their best. What went under the radar is the fact Mets too are hitting. Going against the grain with the Total Over

Game Total OVER 7.5 at -110 for 1 unit(W)

Los Angeles Dodgers at Washington Nationals
This is the regular time match up with two good pitchers facing off.  This one looks to be your old school National League style game. Zack Greinke is the top money pitcher for the Dodgers. Despite his winning ways his quality games are lacking and on the road the number is 2 quality starts out of 7, team record 4-3. Zack has minimized damage, outside of Colorado, and his form has improved significantly. The Nationals countering with Gio Gonzalez who is the 2nd money winning pitcher in the staff. He has been consistent with 14 out of 19 quality starts and perfect 7 in last 7 games. However the number is a bit weaker at home 6 out of 9 and the Nationals have 5-4 record.  Gio is 10-4 as a favorite and perfect 4-0 against the West. The Total here at 7.5 with good pitchers in not so good pitching spot deserves a Over consideration, but Cooper behind the plate this one will likely edge Under. The Opening Under at -115 had moved all the way to -107, but now back to -110.  Backing the Under.

Game Total UNDER 7.5 at -110 for 1 unit(W)
