Game Preview

The Washington Nationals sport a record of 61-39 heading into this matchup, while the Colorado Rockies sit at 58-45 on the season. This game matches up the No. 5 (Washington Nationals) and the No. 14 (Colorado Rockies) teams, according to current MLB Power Rankings.

Defensive Impact

Scoring stats point to some edges in this matchup. The game features the Washington Nationals No. 2-ranked scoring average of 5.63 runs per game, against a Colorado Rockies offense rated No. 4 and scoring 5.33 runs per game. The Nationals have averaged 9.75 hits per game to date this season, more than the Rockies hitters have managed (9.46 per nine innings).

Washington owns the No. 11 defense, allowing 5.63 men per game to cross the plate. That contrasts with Colorado’s No. 17-rated defense.

 

I like the Nationals to win this straight up on the money line at -140, expect Washington to score well in this game and make an impact on defense at home.

The Phillies (34-62) are 5-4 out of the All-Star break, but they get a big test Monday when the American League’s best team, the Houston Astros (65-33), comes to town for the opener in a three-game set.
Philadelphia will send Vince Velasquez (2-5, 5.14 ERA) to the mound to face fellow right-hander Brad Peacock (8-1, 2.49) on Monday in the series opener.

This game matches up the No. 5 (Philadelphia Phillies) and the No. 1 (Houston Astros) teams, according to current MLB Power Rankings.

Take the Houston Astros on the moneyline. Despite, yesterday’s loss to the Orioles, the Astros will come out strong and bounce back for an easy win over the Phillies.

Latest odds: TBR -180

The Tampa Bay Rays bring a 51-46 record to the battle against the 46-50 Rangers. According to MLB Power Rankings here, it’s the No. 22-ranked Tampa Bay Rays and the No. 21-rated Texas Rangers in this matchup.

The game also pits Tampa Bay Rays No. 16-rated offense, averaging 4.65 runs per game, against a Texas Rangers defense that ranks No. 15 at 4.78 in runs allowed per game. The Tampa Bay Rays have averaged 8.71 hits per game so far, more than Texas Rangers batters have averaged on the year (7.94 hits per game).

Pitching and defensive stats are important baseball handicapping betting factors and Tampa Bay has the No. 13-ranked defense. In the other dugout, the Rangers own the No. 15 mark in runs allowed.

I like the Tampa Bay Rays as favorites at home vs. the Texas Rangers. Take Tampa at home straight up on the moneyline (6-3) in its last 9 games, also Tampa Bay is (4-1) in its last 5 games at home.
