DAY 50 MLB Selections

Updated: May 27

Time to start a new winning streak. Leading off the day with Pitching! One game that has superior pitching and the other game...well, rembering watching your 8-year old play little league, yeah it's going to be like that!


Kansas City Royals (14-28) at Minnesota Twins (27-17)

TAKE: ROYALS +150 WIN 3-2


Devin Smeltzer will take to the mound for the Twins, his third start of the season. The left-hander last pitched on Saturday against the Kansas City Royals, throwing 5 1/3 innings and giving up one earned run. He has an ERA of 1.74, a batting average against of .229 and 1.7 strikeouts per nine innings in two games this season. Smeltzer has pitched five or more innings in two straight games and will look to extend that streak.


Daniel Lynch (2-3) takes the mound first for the Royals in his eighth start of the season. He’s put together a 4.01 ERA in 33 2/3 innings pitched, with 31 strikeouts. In his most recent time out on Saturday, the left-hander went 3 2/3 innings against the Minnesota Twins, giving up four earned runs while surrendering five hits. The 25-year-old has an ERA of 4.01, with 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings in seven games this season. Lynch is looking to collect his sixth start of five or more innings this season in this game. Lynch has pitched 8 2/3 innings, giving up four earned runs on nine hits while striking out four against the Twins this season. I like a good rematch, especially when you can get (+) Moneyline


Los Angeles Dodgers (29-14) at Arizona Diamondbacks (23-22)

TAKE: DIAMONDBACKS +160 LOSS 1-14


Mitch White will make his second start of the season.The right-hander last pitched on Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies, throwing 2 1/3 innings and giving up three earned runs. He has an ERA of 6.17, a batting average against of .250 and 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings in six games this season. The right-hander has faced the Diamondbacks one time this season, allowing them to go 1-for-6 with a home run and an RBI in 1 1/3 innings.


Humberto Castellanos (3-1) takes the mound first for the Diamondbacks in his eighth start of the season. He has a 4.29 ERA in 35 2/3 innings pitched, with 26 strikeouts.

The right-hander last appeared on Friday against the Chicago Cubs, when he tossed 5 1/3 innings, allowing three earned runs while giving up five hits. Over nine games this season, the 24-year-old has amassed a 4.29 ERA and 6.6 strikeouts per nine innings, while allowing a batting average of .250 to his opponents. Castellanos has yet to notch a quality start this season. Castellanos is trying for his fifth straight appearance lasting five or more innings. He averages 3.3 frames per start.


Wow, both these pitchers stink! AND you get +160 on Arizona, what a deal! Look the West Division is tough and the Dodgers are not walking on water. I’ll take the +160 everyday if the pitching is this bad for both teams, just wish it was a little higher for the Diamondbacks.
