Play Type: Premium
I realize Jake Arrieta hasn't been as dominant as he's been the past couple of seasons and that Alex Wood is pitching extremely well. But the Cubs are the more powerful team - especially with the Dodgers minus injured Justin Turner and Joc Pederson - and Arrieta still rates an edge on Wood, who has yet to achieve consistency during his career.  The Cubs have won 69 percent of Arrieta's last 54 road starts. Arrieta held the Brewers to one run, which was unearned, on five hits and six strikeouts with a walk in six innings during his last start this past Sunday. The Dodgers haven't scored in 16 consecutive innings when facing Arrieta.  The southpaw Wood is coming off a 7-2 win against the offensively-challenged Marlins last Friday. Wood threw a season-high 96 pitches in that game. Following a quality Wood start, the Dodgers are 2-9 the past 11 times the next time he pitches.  Chicago also is 10-4 the last 14 times facing a lefty starter, including 8-4 this season. The Cubs have smacked 26 homers in their last 14 games, second-most in the majors during this span.

The Braves are playing better than expected. The Giants are playing worse than expected. Yet the Giants still have as many victories as the Braves. I'm looking for the Braves to regress to the norm especially without injured Freddie Freeman, their most productive player, and for the Giants to make a move now that they have returned home. As bad as they've been, the Giants still have a winning mark at AT&T Park.  Outfielder Denard Span is back for San Francisco. That's huge and somewhat below-the-radar.  The Giants are 17-8 the past 25 times at home when going against a lefty starter. They face southpaw Jaime Garcia today. Garcia hasn't pitched well on the road allowing 19 earned runs in 34 1/3 innings for an away ERA of nearly 5.00.   Atlanta has dropped nine of its last 13 games at AT&T. The Braves take on Matt Cain here. I wouldn't touch Cain away from spacious AT&T, but he's been dynamic at home going 3-0 with a 1.19 ERA in four starts. Cain is past his prime, but he's a savvy veteran who knows how to pitch well in this park. 

Stephen Nover's Friday Free Play

Orioles plus $.144 at Astros

The ERA shows 6.65. But the buy sign is on for me here with Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman. I'm willing to take a calculated leap of faith with Glausman and the Orioles at this tidy road underdog price against Houston. Gausman is showing definite signs of turning around his year after a disastrous start. He's had two quality starts in his last three outings giving up two earned runs during those two good games. He pitched his best game of the season three starts ago holding Washington to two runs on five hits in seven innings with eight strikeouts. The Nationals lead the majors in runs, batting average and homers.  The Orioles are four-for-20 with runners in scoring position during their last four games. Baltimore, though, ranks third in the league in batting with runners in scoring position. I see them getting back on track against Houston starter Joe Musgrove.  Musgrove is the weakest of Houston's starters. He has a 5.63 ERA. Foes are batting .306 against him and have smacked nine homers off him, including six by right-handers. The Orioles have plenty of right-handed power. Musgrove lasted just three innings in his last start, which came at home against the Indians this past Sunday. He was blasted for seven runs allowing eight hits and walking three.  Baltimore faced Musgrove once last season at home. The Orioles buried the Astros, 13-5, in that contest putting up eight runs on 11 hits and one walk against Musgrove in 5 1/3 innings. Houston is 1-5 in Musgrove's last six home starts. The Orioles were idle on Thursday, while the Astros had to use their best relievers to nip the Tigers, 7-6, Thursday.  The spot is ripe for the Orioles. They are going against a very vulnerable starter with their own starter displaying positive signs of coming around. Baltimore has been good in these type of situations, too, winning nine of the last 13 times when going against a home team with a winning percentage of better than .600.

Mets vs Pirates
Pirates
-113 at BMaker
Play Type: Top Premium
The Pirates could hardly touch Jacob deGrom Friday. Now they face Zach Wheeler with their best pitcher, Gerrit Cole, going. Wheeler is coming around from a long bout with arm trouble, but he's not deGrom. I see the Pirates bouncing back here and the price is right to get involved.  Until beating Pittsburgh yesterday, the Mets had dropped six straight road games. The Mets have a shaky bullpen and their best hitter, Yoenis Cespedes, isn't back yet from a hamstring injury.  Wheeler has pitched well in his last four starts, but is giving up too many walks and can't be counted on to go deep into games. Wheeler walked five Angels in five innings during his last start.  The right-handed Cole looks to rebound after his worst outing of the season when he gave up five runs on a season-high 10 hits in just 4 2/3 innings to the Braves this past Monday. That game was in Atlanta. Now Cole is home where his ERA is 1.67 in four starts at PNC Park. Opponents are batting .161 against him there.  The Mets have lost nine of their last 13 when going against a right-handed starter. They also have dropped six of their past eight at PNC Park. Gregory Polanco played for the first time since May 14 because of a left hamstring strain. The Pirates' offense is better with him back in the lineup.
