At 3:45 pm, our selection is on the Cincinnati Reds over the San Francisco Giants.  Yesterday, we played on the Giants behind Kevin Gausman, and were rewarded with a 7-6 come-from-behind victory.  Today, we'll switch gears, and take the road team, Cincinnati.  The Reds will hand the ball to RHP Tyler Mahle, who has been terrific this season.  Mahle has made two starts, and threw four shutout innings last Friday at Arizona, and gave up just two earned runs over five innings vs. the Cardinals, back on April 3.  Today, Mahle will match up against the Giants' Johnny Cueto, who has a career 4.50 ERA vs. the Reds.  Cincy is 11-6 behind Mahle, when installed as a favorite.  Take the Reds.

At 1:40 pm, our selection is on the Milwaukee Brewers over the Chicago Cubs.  The Brewers' Corbin Burnes has been as effective as any pitcher in baseball through his first two starts.  He's faced the Twins and Cardinals, and has given up just 1 run over 12 1-3 innings, while allowing just two baserunners (!!!), and striking out 20 batters.  Today, Burnes will take on Jake Arrieta and the Cubs.  Chicago's a poor 26-38 on the division road, and 140-284 (minus 42 games on the moneyline) as an underdog of +150 (or higher), while Milwaukee is a dominant 255-134 (+25 games on the moneyline) as a home favorite of -150 (or more).  Take the Brewers this afternoon.

At 7:10 pm, our selection is on the Philadelphia Phillies over the New York Mets.  Like any MLB starter, the Phils' RH Zack Wheeler wants to win every time he goes out to the mound.  But the 30-year-old has got to feel an additional incentive whenever he faces the Mets. It was New York, after all, which decided to not give Wheeler a contract extension in 2019 after he had been there for his first seven MLB seasons.  And when that contract season came to a head, Wheeler had just completed his second straight winning campaign and looked for certain like a pitcher who New York would want to lock up.  But, instead, Wheeler was granted free agency and he ended up signing with the Phillies -- a move that no doubt he is happy with now.  Wheeler went 4-2 with a 2.92 ERA in 11 starts in 2020.  And he started out this season with a bang, tossing seven innings of one-hit ball in a shutout win against Atlanta.  The Mets beat this Phillies team in both games of the double-header on Tuesday, but they are just 25-46 (minus 16 games on the moneyline) in their last 71 games as an underdog of +150 (or less).  Take the Phils.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.

At 7:10 pm, our selection is on the Houston Astros over Detroit.  After dropping Games 1 + 2 in this three-game series, the Astros will look to salvage things with a win in Game 3, tonight.  Lance McCullers, Jr. will get the start for the Astros, and he's been a model of consistency in his two starts this season.  McCullers went five innings in each start, and also gave up just one run, two hits and three walks in both of those starts!  Tonight, McCullers will face a Tigers team, which will hand the ball to Michael Fulmer.  Unfortunately for Detroit, Fulmer is 0-2 in his career vs. Houston, with an ERA north of 6 runs per game, and a WHIP of 1.79.  The Tigers are a dreadful 43-133 (minus 32 games on the moneyline) as an underdog of +200 (or higher), and 11-28 (minus 13 games on the moneyline) after allowing 2 or less runs in their previous game.  Take Houston.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 9:40 pm, our selection is on the Dallas Mavericks over the Memphis Grizzlies.  The Mavs come into tonight's game off back to back home losses, including an 18-point blowout at the hands of the Philly 76ers.  I love Dallas to rebound off those defeats, and get the W tonight at Memphis.  Indeed, the Mavs are 24-6 straight-up, and 23-6-1 ATS their last 30 as road favorites of less than 7 points, including a perfect 4-0 ATS off back to back losses.  Even better:  Dallas is a terrific 77-39-1 ATS off a loss by 14+ points.  And it's 116-71 ATS off a loss, if its opponent was off a straight-up win.  Take the Mavericks.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
