Ace’s Picks of the Day: 6/15/2018
Nationals -133 @ Blue Jays
It’s still unknown if Nats’ superstar Bryce Harper will be in the lineup tonight after a foot injury against the Yankees, but Washington should be fine without him. Gio Gonzales is coming off back-to-back starts where he struggled a bit, but I believe he’ll be able to get back on track and continue his strong season.
Indians -230 and -1.5 vs Twins
The dominant Corey Kluber gets the start for the Indians tonight. Cleveland is doing just enough to stay atop of the AL Central Standings and they’re looking to expand their lead against divisional foe Minnesota. Kyle Gibson gets the start for Minnesota, and he was able to work 5.2 innings while giving up 2 runs in his last outing vs Cleveland. If the Indians only score 2 on Gibson tonight, it should be enough with Kluber on the mound.
Phillies +115 @ Brewers
Arrieta’s last start came 6 days ago against Milwaukee and he struggled quite a bit giving up 4 runs through 5.1 innings. With Arrieta being the type of competitor he is, I expect hi to show up and change whatever was needed to be changed to bring him more success against the Brewers’ lineup. Philadelphia’s lineup has also woken up a bit after a slump, and they’re coming off a series win over Colorado.
Cardinals -102 vs Cubs
Without a doubt game of the day right here. Division Rivals. Wacha vs Lester. Wacha and Lester basically have had the same exact season, and they both have been dominant. Both team are coming off series losses and looking to rebound. Both looking to climb back into the top of the division standings. Tough game to pick, but I’m taking the Cardinals since it’s in St. Louis.
Astros -210 and -1.5 @ Royals
The Astros are really good. The Royals are absolutely terrible.
Dustin Johnson +125 US Open Champion
I know nothing about golf. I know DJ is #1 in the world and he’s had two solid rounds going into the last two rounds. So, I put some money on him. #golf
