OTH- Daily Odds 7/31/19 is part of a daily series providing you the odds for all major sports being played that day.
12:05 EST Braves @ Nationals – The Braves take on the Nationals in game three of the series this afternoon in the DC as Mike Soroka faces off with Anibal Sanchez. Atlanta has won nine of Soroka’s last ten starts with the lone loss coming against the Nationals. Soroka is 6-0 on the road this year with a 1.19 ERA. The Braves are 8-2 on the road with Soroka starting, and 5-0 in his last five on the road. Sanchez has pitched well lately however, with the Braves bats heating up it may only take a few runs with Soroka on the mound to get the win.
Picks: Braves (-125) Under 5 total 1st 5 Innings (-120)
12:35 EST Prates @ Reds – Luis Castillo takes the hill and he is looking to avenge his worst home start of the season on Wednesday. On the season, Castillo is 5-3 at home with a 2.28 ERA. The Pirates are countering with Dario Agrazal, who is also looking to overcome his worst start of the season. Agrazal had given up two earned runs or less in all of his starts, until he gave up five earned runs in his last outing. There could be a lot of fireworks in this one, as these teams do not like each other. Nevertheless, look for the Reds to take care of business.
Picks: Pittsburgh +1.5(-105), Under 9.5 Runs(-110), Cincy Under 5.5 Runs(-120), First 5 Under 5.5 (-115)
1:15 EST Blue Jays @ Royals – Kansas City is looking to avoid the sweep in this series. They will send Jakob Junis to the mound, and he will be looking to avenge his last start, in which he gave up six runs. If history repeats itself, he will have a quality start today. The last three times Junis gave up six or more in a start, he made sure to deliver a quality start in his next start. The Jays will counter with Jacob Waguespack. He is 1-1 in his five starts, and has given up three or four runs in each start. The Royals have lost four of their last five, but look for them to avoid the sweep today.
Picks: KC (-115), KC First 5 Innings (-105)
3:10 EST Dodgers @ Rockies – 15 of Hyun Jin Ryu’s last 16 starts have been quality starts. The only one that wasn’t was on June 28 at Colorado. He will be looking to avenge that abysmal outing, where he gave up seven runs in four innings of work. Since that start, Ryu has given up four runs over the course of four July starts. The Rockies will counter with German Marquez, who has been bad at Coors Field in June and July. Over his last four home starts, he has given up 27 runs in 20 and ⅓ innings pitched. The Dodgers have won Ryu’s last four starts, and six of his last seven. Look for that trend to continue.
Picks: Dodgers (-135), Dodgers 5 Innings (-145), Colorado Under 5.5 Runs (-120)
