Arizona Diamondbacks -1.5 over New York Mets (+170)

The Diamondbacks have struggled with consistency lately during a very important time of the season. Despite that, they are tied for the 3rd wild card spot in the NL. The Diamondbacks have been solid and took 3 out of 4 from a scorching-hot Cubs team in Wrigley to enter this series. They then won the opener of this series, but the Mets have taken the last 2. Arizona needs a win to continue to keep pace in the wild card. They are the better team and will come out with plenty of urgency.

Thursday’s starting pitching matchup is a good one with Merrill Kelly starting for the Diamondbacks and Kodai Senga starting for the Mets. As well as Senga has pitched lately, he has not factored in a win in 3 very solid starts because the Mets either don’t produce or the bullpen 7 does not get the job done. Kelly has pitched very well and has a more consistent supporting cast than is on the Mets. Look for the Diamondbacks to push hard for a big win.

Texas Rangers ML over Toronto Blue Jays & Over 8.5 (+340)

The Rangers have dominated the first 3 games of this 4-game series by a combined score of 26-3. Texas has bullied Toronto and the Blue Jays have not had an answer. The Rangers are +130 on the money line which is fantastic value straight up, let alone in a Same Game Parlay with higher odds. There has been no indication from the Blue Jays that they are going to flip the script. Toronto has a good record over the past couple of weeks but has played Cleveland, Washington, Colorado, Oakland and Kansas City. This week they have finally run into a good team and all of a sudden look lost.

Thursday’s game looks to have a solid starting pitching matchup. But in terms of the over, that has not mattered lately for these teams as the first 3 games had good pitching matchups as well. The over has also hit for both of these teams prior to this series. The total has gone over in 10 if the Rangers’ last 11 games and in 12 of the Blue Jays’ last 17 games. Head to head, the over is 4-1 overall and 6-1 in Texas. Again, there is been no indication that the script will be flipped for this trend either.
