Miami is on a 6-game winning streak, and we expect their winning ways to continue tonight.  The Marlins will start Wei-Yin Chen who has dominated Milwaukee’s lineup in limited chances.  In 183 pitches thrown to the Brewers, Chen has allowed just 3 runs on 9 hits with Milwaukee’s lineup hitting .220 against him.  Chen has held Milwaukee to just a .622 ops (on-base plus slugging percentage metric) as well.

Milwaukee will send Chase Anderson to the mound tonight.  My numbers project a poor outing for Anderson against Miami’s lineup.  Anderson projects to give up 2.7 earned runs with a 4.30 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in this game.  The Marlins are hitting .273 (12-44) against Anderson, and that will continue tonight, especially since their offense has scored 27 runs during their 6-game winning streak.  We’ll lay the price with Miami and Chen in this game on Saturday night.

Toronto won Game 1 of this series 6-1 last night, but we expect a much different outcome tonight.  The Blue Jays will start J.A. Happ in this game.  Happ has been hit hard by the Tampa Bay lineup in his career.  Happ has allowed 15 runs on 38 hits in 119 at-bats against Tampa Bay’s lineup.  The Rays are hitting .319 with a terrific .884 ops (on-base plus slugging percentage metric) against him. 

Tampa Bay will send Chris Archer to the mound in this game.  My numbers project a strong outing for Archer against Toronto’s lineup.  Archer is slated to give up just 2.0 earned runs with a solid 3.02 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in this game based on my numbers.  Toronto has hit just .186 with a weak .569 ops against Archer in his career.  We’ll back Tampa Bay in this game on Saturday night.

Chicago comes into tonight’s game off back-to-back losses after winning six games in a row over the last week.  We expect the White Sox to lose once again tonight as they send Mat Latos to the mound.  Latos has given up 8 runs on 13 hits in just 43 at-bats to the Baltimore lineup in his career.  The Orioles are hitting .302 with a .912 ops (on-base plus slugging percentage metric) against Latos.  My numbers project Latos to have a weak 4.68 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in this game.

Baltimore will start Kevin Gausman in this game.  My numbers project a strong outing for Gausman against Chicago’s lineup.  Gausman is slated to give up just 2.2 earned runs with a solid 3.24 ERA and a terrific 1.17 WHIP in this game based on my numbers.  Gausman has given up just 2 runs on 6 hits in a limited 24 at-bats versus the White Sox lineup in his career.  We’ll lay the price with Baltimore and Gausman in this game on Saturday night.

Indiana played terrific basketball in the second half of Game 6 to force tonight’s Game 7 back in Toronto.  The Pacers trailed by 4 points at the half before out-scoring the Raptors 61-39 in the second half.  Indiana got another stellar performance from Paul George in Game 6 as he scored 21 points after getting to the free throw line ten times in the game.  In Game 5, George scored 39 points on 57.9% (11-19) shooting from the field.  Those performances actually set George up to regress tonight considering he struggled mightily against the Raptors in all four regular season meetings.  He shot just 31% (20-65) from the field which was his lowest shooting percentage versus any opponent in the Eastern Conference this season.  In 59 minutes with George off the court in this series, Indiana is a -33 in points scored compared to +48 in points scored in 160 minutes with him on the court.  Overall, the Pacers’ offense only had a 98.9 offensive efficiency rating in their four regular season games against Toronto.

Toronto returns home for Game 7, and we expect a superb performance tonight by the Raptors.  The team needed a monster fourth quarter rally to beat Indiana back in Game 5, but we expect the Raptors to come out and play their best basketball from the opening tip.  In the six games in this series, Toronto has out-scored Indiana 222-198 inside the paint.  The Raptors have also dominated the glass while holding a 262-237 rebounding edge, including an 85-59 edge on the offensive glass.  Those two areas are key to winning basketball games, and the Raptors have clearly dominated Indiana in the first six games.  Toronto had a 0.448 free throw rate against the Pacers this season; the highest of any Indiana opponent.  The Raptors got to the free throw line 169 times in the six games while shooting 76.3% (129-169) from the stripe.  Toronto also has the second best bench in the NBA behind the Spurs, so they hold some serious advantages over the Pacers.  We’ll lay the points with Toronto in Game 7 of this series on Sunday night.

Boston has won the first two games in this series by a combined score of 12-2, and the Yankees are now likely to get swept on Sunday night baseball.  New York will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound tonight.  My numbers project a poor outing for Eovaldi against Boston’s lineup.  Eovaldi projects to give up 2.6 earned runs with a 4.17 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in this game.  Eovaldi has allowed 7 runs on 17 hits in just 58 at-bats to the Red Sox lineup in his career.  Boston is hitting .293 with a .736 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage metric) against Eovaldi.  He has little support on the backend as the Yankees' bullpen has struggled on the road this season with a horrendous 6.41 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.

Boston is 6-1 during their past seven games, and their winning ways should continue tonight.  They are averaging 6.1 runs with a .298 team batting average during the past week, while the Yankees are just 2-5 with a terrible .208 team batting average while averaging only 1.7 runs during their past seven games.  The Red Sox will start David Price who projects to have a fantastic outing against New York’s lineup based on my numbers.  Price is slated to give up just 1.9 earned runs with a terrific 2.60 ERA and an incredible 1.04 WHIP in this game.  My numbers also project Price to have a strong 9.6 strikeout rate over 9 innings pitched, and an excellent 5.3 strikeout/walk ratio in this game.  We’ll lay the price with Boston and Price in this game on Sunday night.
