DAY 46 MLB SELECTIONS

Updated: May 24

Our 4-team parlay just keeps winning! We had a nice play yesterday with the Padres. Let's keep the money train on the tracks this SUNDAY!


Pittsburgh Pirates (16-23) vs St. Louis Cardinals (22-18)

PIRATES +130 LOSS 18-4


It's final game of a three-game set at PNC Park. Steven Matz (3-3) will take the mound for the Cardinals, his ninth start of the season. The left-hander last pitched on Tuesday, when he gave up two earned runs and allowed three hits in five innings against the New York Mets.

The 30-year-old has pitched to a 6.03 ERA this season with 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings compared to 1.9 walks per nine across eight games. He has two quality starts in eight chances this season. Matz has pitched five or more innings in two straight games and will look to extend that streak.


Bryse Wilson makes the start for the Pirates, his fifth of the season. He is 0-2 with a 5.67 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 27 innings pitched. The righty last appeared in relief on Monday, when he threw 5 1/3 innings against the Chicago Cubs, allowing three earned runs while giving up eight hits. The 24-year-old has a 5.67 ERA and 7.3 strikeouts per nine innings during seven games this season, while giving up a batting average of .287 to opposing batters. Wilson will try to secure his second outing of five or more innings pitched this season. He averages 3.3 innings per appearance. Wilson has pitched four innings, giving up three earned runs on five hits while striking out two against the Cardinals this season.

The Pirates are not the best team going, but when you factor in "it's the last series at HOME" AND Wilson has already pitched vs Cardinals, trust me, you learn a few things the first time around AND It 's Matz's first time for seeing the Pirates this year.


Chicago Cubs (15-23) vs Arizona Diamondbacks (20-21)

+105 DIAMONDBACKS LOSS 4-5


The Cubs will attempt to stop a four-game losing skid on Sunday versus the Diamondbacks with first pitch at 2:20 PM ET at Wrigley Field. Wade Miley heads to the mound for his third start of the season for the CUBS. The left-hander last pitched on Monday, when he threw seven innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates without allowing a run. He has pitched in two games this season with an ERA of 2.70, a batting average against of .171 and 6.3 strikeouts per nine innings.


Merrill Kelly (3-2 with a 3.27 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 44 innings pitched) makes the start for the Diamondbacks, his ninth of the season. The right-hander’s last time out came on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, when he went two innings, surrendering eight earned runs while giving up five hits. The 33-year-old has a 3.27 ERA and 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings in eight games this season, while allowing a batting average of .246 to his opponents. Kelly has four quality starts under his belt this year. Kelly has pitched five or more innings in a game six times this season heading into this game. The 33-year-old’s 3.27 ERA ranks 28th, 1.273 WHIP ranks 46th, and 8.2 K/9 ranks 29th among qualifying pitchers this season. When a team is on a losing streak, I say keep betting against them until they win!



Baltimore Orioles (16-24) vs. Tampa Bay Rays (23-16)

+140 ORIOLES LOSS 6-7


Tampa is at Camden Yards for the second game of their 3-game series. BTW I bet every player went over to Pimlico before and after the game. It was a big party night for the area.


Tampa Bay's LHP Jeffrey Springs is 1-1 with a 1.66 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, 1.2 BB/9 and 8.3 K/9 in 21 2/3 IP over 3 starts and 8 relief appearances. His Last start: No-decision in 3-0 home win vs. the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday with 4 2/3-scoreless IP, 4 H, 0 BB and 2 K.
