Nationals vs. Phillies MLB Odds & Prediction from Ben Burns: September 27th 2017

Washington Nationals vs. Philadelphia Phillies
MLB Prediction: Nationals -157 odds (September 27th 2017)

After the Nationals won the opener, the Phillies took yesterday’s game. Given the matchup, the Nats should have an excellent shot at closing out their road trip with a victory in this evening’s rubber game.

Leiter has an ugly 7.17 ERA in four September starts. Roark, on the other hand, has a 3.12 ERA in September. A closer look reveals that Roark had a 5.27 ERA and 1.45 WHIP prior to the All Star Break.

Since that time, he’s posted a much improved 3.47 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. In fact, he hasn’t given up more than three earned runs in a start since back in late July.

Throw in the fact that Roark is 4-0 with a superb 1.87 ERA and 0.97 WHIP against the Phillies, since the start of the 2016 season, and the visitors are worth a look here. Consider Washington.

WHITE HOT Ben Burns DID IT AGAIN Tuesday. His two plays were the “under” in KC/DET & the Rockies against the Marlins. (His total finished with a final score of 2-1 & the Rockies won 6-0!) With those EASY winners, Burns is now an INCREDIBLE 22-3 his L25 MLB overall & a PERFECT 9-0 his L9 “top-rated” MLB releases. Winner #10 goes today. You in?

Reds vs. Brewers MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Larry Ness: September 27th 2017

Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers
MLB Prediction: Milwaukee -156 odds (September 27th 2017)

The Cubs were looking to clinch the NL’s Central Division with either a win over St Louis or a Milwaukee loss against Cincinnati last night. However, the Cubs fell 8-7 to the Cards while the Brewers held off the Reds, 7-6 (Milwaukee had a four-run first!). Chicago’s magic number remains just one, so any realistic playoff hopes for Milwaukee lie in catching the Rockies for the NL’s second wild card spot. Tuesday’s win left the Brewers 1 1/2 games behind the Rockies for the second NL wild card spot (Milwaukee has five games remaining and Colorado just four). The Brewers are also just one game ahead of the Cards and will play their final three games of the season against the Cardinals in St Louis, this weekend.

That means that Milwaukee can ill-afford a misstep against Cincy, as it plays its final two games of the 2017 season at home tonight and Thursday afternoon against the Reds. Cincinnati is just 66-91, better than only the 63-95 Phillies and 62-96 Giants in the National League. Homer Bailey (5-9, 6.96 ERA) continues his disappointing season in getting the start for Cincy, while the Brewers send rookie Brandon Woodruff (2-2, 3.76 ERA), who makes his eighth career start. Injuries have limited Bailey to 17 starts in 2017 and not much has gone right for a pitcher who owns two career no-hitters. He not only owns a bloated 6.96 ERA but has a 1.75 WHIP and opponents are batting .318 against him. Bailey comes in 6-9 with a 4.87 ERA in 25 career starts vs Milwaukee (Reds are 12-13). Woodruff allowed just four ERs in his first four major-league starts but has allowed 13 ERs on 20 hits over 17 innings (6.88 ERA) during his last three outings. Woodruff has never faced the Reds and I’d be lying if I said that his home/away dichotomy is not a concern. The Brewers are 0-4 in his home starts (5.16 ERA) but 3-0 in his road starts (2.00 ERA)!

Then again, Bailey’s the ‘perfect’ mound opponent (he stinks!) and let’s not forget that the Reds have dropped seven consecutive games and are only 27-49 on the road here in 2017Milwaukee has virtually no margin of error remaining. A win here is a MUST! That’s the bet.

MLB Pick: Will Rogers betting the Orioles -120 odds on September 26th 2017

Baltimore Orioles vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore -120 odds (September 26th 2017)

The set-up: The Pirates stalled division rival St. Louis’ bid for a playoff spot by taking two of the final three games over the weekend but enter this final week of the regular season at 71-85 and nothing to play for at all. The Orioles opened the 2017 season 22-10 but quickly fell into a funk. The team got back into contention by late-August but Baltimore’s long-shot playoff hopes were officially snuffed out this past Saturday night. Sunday’s win versus Tampa Bay was only their fourth in 18 games. This two-game interleague series will feature a pair of teams with nothing to play.

The pitching matchup: Kevin Gausman (11-10 & 4.61 ERA) will go for Baltimore and Trevor Williams (6-9 & 4.18 ERA) for Pittsburgh. Gausman has been excelelnt in his last two starts, allowing just one ER on nine hits over 15 inning (0.60 ERA) with a 13 Ks and just two walks. He’s only faced Pittsburgh once in his career (0-1 & 5.40 ERA). Williams owns a 2.12 ERA over his last five starts but has just one win to show for it (he’s 1-3 and the team 2-3). Williams is a rookie who has never faced Baltimore.

The pick: The Pittsburgh Pirates clearly have their sights fixed on 2018, as five of the eight position players who started for them on Sunday were rookies. In this one, I’ll back the suddenly hot Gausman.
