πŸ”₯ Cubs (+156) vs Yankees (-190) OverUnder 8.0 O/U

On the other side, the Yankees have Gerrit Cole, who's faced 448 batters with a 2.79 ERA. The Yankees are ranked #2 for Home Runs per game, and Yankee Stadium is one of the top 3 ballparks in baseball for HR's allowing 1.50 per game.

The Tigers have Matt Manning, who's faced 95 batters with a 4.84 ERA. This could be a low-scoring game, with Comerica Park being one of the toughest ballparks in baseball for HR's, allowing just 0.81 per game. The Tigers bats are one of the worst in baseball, ranking #30 overall, while the Blue Jays are one of the highest run-scoring teams in baseball at 4.9 per game.

On the other side, the Twins have Sonny Gray, who's faced 375 batters with a 2.31 ERA.

πŸ”₯ Rangers (-185) vs Nationals (+153) OverUnder 10.0 O/U

Finally, we have the Rangers taking on the Nationals at 4:05 PM. The Rangers are favored here, with Andrew Heaney on the mound, who's faced 354 batters with a 4.12 ERA. The Nationals have Jake Irvin, who's faced 238 batters with a 4.86 ERA. This could be a high-scoring game, so keep an eye on it.
