Red Sox vs. Yankees, 7:05PM ET
The scene is well and truly set in the Bronx tonight for Aaron Judge to hit home run No. 61 against New York's old foe, but don't expect the scoring opportunities to just be limited to the Yankees tonight. Gerrit Cole (12-7, 3.41 ERA) is on the bump for the Yanks, and even though they've been winning when he starts, opposition hitters have still been feasting with an average of 2.7 runs given up per start over his last 10 games, including a massive 8 runs through his last two starts where he's given up 5 home runs in the process too. Look for the runs to flow on both sides tonight.
BET: Total runs OVER 8 (-108). Place this bet with DraftKings Sportsbook ➡️ here ⬅️.
Astros vs. Orioles, 7:05PM ET
Houston suffered an uncharacteristic shutout loss to the O's in their weekend series opener last night, even with the impenetrable Justin Verlander on the bump for the Astros. While their run offense was unable to provide any support, going down 2-0, a repeat of that is unlikely to occur tonight with the 'Stros never going consecutive games scoreless this season. The main concern for Houston tonight will be trying to lock things down defensively with starting ace José Urquidy (13-7, 3.96 ERA) suffering through a rough patch right now, clocking up a 6.00 ERA over his last three starts. This one could be a shootout, with a relatively low total a chance to be exploited.

Guardians vs. Rangers, 8:05PM ET
Cleveland navigated through back-to-back series over interdivisional rivals in the Twins and White Sox in emphatic fashion over the past week to all but cement themselves as the AL Central winners and book their spot in the postseason. With the highs of the last few games, are they due a let down game against a lesser opponent in the Rangers? Nah. This team is humming right now, and they have everything they need to keep going strong. The relatively inexperienced Cody Morris (0-2, 2.30 ERA) will be pitching for the Guards, but despite his record, he has been a solid addition to the rotation in recent weeks, only giving up 5 runs across his first 5 career starts. If the Cleveland offense can fire, they'll add another W to the column.
