Yankees vs. Rangers, 4:05PM ET
The Yanks and Rangers split yesterday's record-breaking doubleheader in Arlington, with close contests in both games, but with New York looking for one final tune up before the postseason, we're expecting a dominant showing out of the Yankees this afternoon. Texas are 0-3 in their last three games where starting pitcher Glenn Otto (6-10, 4.72 ERA) has appeared, and that's not the only problem with Otto also on a bad run, giving up 5 home runs during that stretch. That's alarm bells for this Rangers team who know that the Yankees lead the league in home runs hit this season with 253 on the year. This will be a great chance for Aaron Judge and his batting lineup to attack.
BET: Yankees moneyline (-148). with DraftKings Sportsbook. Click ➡️ here ⬅️ to place your bet.
Diamondbacks vs. Brewers, 4:10PM ET
Despite their season officially dying on Monday night, the Brewers were in fine form last night against the DBacks with a solid 3-0 win. It doesn't look like they've thrown in the towel and should be relied upon tonight against an Arizona team that might have actually checked out with only 3 wins in their last 10 games. Making matters worse for the Diamondbacks will be the off form of starting pitcher Merrill Kelly (13-8, 3.43 ERA). Kelly, who has otherwise been great this season, is enduring a tough recent time with an ERA of 7.64 in his last three starts, not to mention, giving up an average of over 3 runs per start across his last 10. That doesn't bode well for a team that just wants to begin their vacation.
BET: Brewers -1.5 (+126). Want to tail this pick? Do it with DraftKings Sportsbook and get a nice bonus while doing so by clicking ➡️ here ⬅️.
Phillies vs. Astros, 4:10PM ET
The Phillies were kept scoreless last night by a strong Astros pitching lineup led by Justin Verlander who went hitless through 6 innings. That might change this afternoon, though, with starting Houston ace Framber Valdez (16-6, 2.89 ERA) in some rather leaky form. Valdez has given up a total of 12 ER in his last three starts and has 7 games allowing multiple runs to his opponents in his last 10. The Astros offense has been able to deal with the defensive onslaught, winning 8 of those games, and we could see that again with a shootout well and truly possible.
BET: Total runs OVER 7.5 (-105). Place this bet with DraftKings Sportsbook ➡️ here ⬅️.
