Marlins (+180) V Braves (-200)

I had the Braves as one of my picks yesterday, but sadly they could not pull through. In today's matchup, Max Fried, one of the Braves’ best will face off with Daniel Castano. Thus far, Fried has been amazing, holding a 3-0 record and 1.59 ERA. However, last season versus the Marlins, in Fried’s two starts, he pitched eleven innings, allowing seventeen hits and eight runs, against a weaker Marlins squad. This season versus lefties, the Marlins have been solid, holding a team batting average of .248. I expect them to put up solid numbers against Fried given their history against him. Daniel Castano will take the mound for the Marlins, in his lone start this season, he pitched four innings, giving up five hits and four runs. Luckily for Castano, the Braves are bad against lefties, boasting a team batting average of .183 and Adam Duvall being their only consistent hitter. The stats point toward the Marlins, but the public doesn’t seem to care. I’m going to play it safe and take the fish +2.5.

The pick: Marlins +2.5

Marlins 5- Braves 4

Dodgers (-140) V Angels (+130)

Andrew Heaney faces Walker Bueler in what should be a pitchers duel until the Angels bullpen screws it up late in the game. Heaney holds a 1-1 record and a 4.26 ERA thus far. Those numbers may not seem too enticing, but the Dodgers hit very poorly off lefties, holding a team batting average of .207. They hit well off the lefty, Pedro Sandoval yesterday but Heaney is a better pitcher. Walker Bueler takes the mound for the Dodgers, coming in with a 4.40 ERA and 0-0 record. Bueler is one of the better pitchers in the league, coming off of a 14-4, 3.26 ERA campaign in 2019. The Angels hit solid versus right handers, holding a .240 team batting average. However, Mike Trout, Danny Fletcher, Tommy La Stella and Brian Goodwin all hit better than .290 versus right handers. I like the Angels to keep it close early but after Heaney comes out, expect the Dodgers to light up the Halos bullpen.

The pick: Angels F5 +0.5

Dodgers 5- Angels 3

Man City (-450) V Lyon (+900)

Lyon shouldn’t even be in this game, they got bailed by VAR multiple times versus Juve and Juve dominated them the entire time in the second leg. Man City is one of the hottest teams out there, and I see them meeting Bayern in the finals. As the -2 spread goes, I don’t see a lot of value in that so I am going to play the over 3 goals, as I can see Man City scoring more than that on their own. I see Lyon scoring one goal and that’s it.

The Pick: Over 3

Man City 3- Lyon 1

Stipe Miocic (-110) V Daniel Cormier (-110)

I love DC, if you don’t love DC you’re not a fan of the UFC, but sadly I see him losing in his final career fight in what should be an epic trilogy between the greatest heavyweights of all time. I see this one going similar to the first fight, Miocic tires DC out and KO’s him in the third or fourth, making him the greatest heavyweight ever.

The pick: Stipe Miocic -110

Miocic by KO 3rd round
