BOS Red Sox Win -1.5-160BOS Red Sox @ BAL Orioles

Boston had an off day on Monday to process getting swept by the Yankees at home to drop into the second wild-card spot in the American League. Their closing schedule is the easiest of the AL contenders, though. They are just 39-36 on the road this season and that includes 6-1 at Baltimore, so if they have to be on the road Camden Yards looks as good a place as any. If they can’t beat the Orioles when it really matters they don’t deserve to be in the playoffs anyway. Baltimore split their series with fellow last-place team Texas over the weekend. Their final two series are against Boston and Toronto so even though they have no chance of making the playoffs they will have some influence. The O’s swept the Red Sox to start the season but since then they have not won a series against Boston. They were swept at Fenway Park the last time these teams played. 

Chris Sale is 5-0 since returning from injury. They have won all but 1 of his starts but he has not been as dominant as in the past. In just 7 starts he has 2 wins against Baltimore, so it is hard to bet against him in this spot. Orioles lefty Bruce Zimmerman is making his first appearance since June 13. Prior to that he was not giving the O’s anything special and Boston has hit him pretty well over a couple of starts — 12 innings with 6 runs allowed. As expected Boston is a whopping favorite in this one. They still need wins and Chris Sale is the best starter they have. I want to fade them but it is tough with Baltimore and Zimmerman, who is rusty and who the Red Sox have hit well in the past. The Sox are the visitors, so taking them on the run line makes even more sense as they will not get robbed of an at-bat. Take Boston.

SF Giants Win -1.5-135ARI Diamondbacks @ SF Giants

The San Francisco Giants enter this contest with a record of 102-54. They have clinched a playoff birth, but they are determined to win the National League West. They lead the Dodgers by 2.0 games, and they have a favorable matchup in this series against the Diamondbacks. If San Francisco wants to secure the division, they need to take advantage of their opportunity against an Arizona team that enters Tuesday with a record of 50-106. It also helps San Francisco’s cause that Logan Webb will be on the mound in this one. The Giants are 19-5 in his 24 starts on the year. He has struggled a bit in his last few outings, but he should be able to get back on track at home against the last-place D-Backs. In his last home start, Webb tossed 7.0 strong innings and allowed just 2 runs on 6 hits against the Braves. On the season, he is 5-0 with a minuscule 1.76 ERA and .208 BAA at Oracle Park.

Luke Weaver gets the nod for Arizona. He has really struggled on the road.  The Arizona right-hander is 0-4 with a 7.94 ERA and .299 BAA on the road this season. The D-Backs are 1-4 in those 5 road starts, and the Giants have been tough to beat in their own ballpark. The Giants are 14-2 against the D-Backs this season, and they should be able to keep that success rolling on Tuesday. Back the Giants -1.5.

LA Dodgers Win-180SD Padres @ LA Dodgers

Early in the season, many pundits thought this series between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers could be the deciding factor in determining the winner of the National League West division. But after a dramatic second-half collapse by San Diego, the Padres have already been eliminated from postseason contention. Los Angeles trails the San Francisco Giants by 2 games with less than a week remaining in the regular season. In tonight’s series opener, the Padres will send Yu Darvish to the mound, who will be opposed by Walker Buehler. Darvish has been one of the worst pitchers in Major League Baseball since the beginning of July, posting a 6.78 ERA and a 5.15 FIP in his last 13 trips to the hill. In that span, he has allowed a 12.8% barrel rate, and has struggled to get ahead in the count with only a 58.7 first-pitch strike percentage. The Dodgers should be able to generate plenty of run-scoring opportunities against Darvish.

Buehler has faded in the National League Cy Young race, but he remains one of the game’s premier pitchers. Through 31 turns in the rotation in 2021, he has posted a 2.58 ERA, 3.16 xERA, and a 3.25 FIP. He has been even more dominant in his last 14 starts with a 2.68 ERA and a 2.91 WHIP. Bettors should expect a dominant performance from Buehler against an anemic San Diego offense that ranks 25th in OPS and 26th in ISO since the trade deadline. Los Angeles has the better starting pitcher, the better offense, and the better bullpen in tonight’s affair. The Dodgers also have the psychological advantage of still playing for a division title, whereas the Padres are facing the stark realization that their season will be over in 6 days. Bettors should confidently lock in their wagers on Los Angeles tonight as they go for their 101st win of the year.
