New York Yankees  (+115) @ Tampa Bay Rays

O/U: 8.5

Yankees LHP CC Sabathia makes the start against LHP Blake Snell in Game 3 of the series. The first two games in this four-game set have gone to extra innings, with the Yankees coming out on top in both. That includes yesterday's 8-4 win in 11 innings, as the over connected thanks to the four-run 11th.

The Yankees enter 7-0 in the past seven against left-handed starting pitchers, and they're 5-0 in the past five on the road with a winning record, while going 7-2 in the past nine road games vs. LHP. While they're 1-4 in Sabathia's past five road starts, and 1-6 in his past seven road outings against winning teams, the Yankees are 12-3 in his past 15 outings against the Rays, and 7-2 in his past nine starts in St. Pete. The Rays are also just 2-5 in the past seven starts by Snell against the Bronx Bombers.

My Pick: Yankees (+115)


Miami Marlins @ Atlanta Braves (-192)

O/U: 9

The Marlins head into this game in a five-game nosedive, and they're just 17-41 in the past 58 games inside the National League East. They're a dismal 11-24 in the past 35 road outings vs. LHP, and 21-45 in the past 66 overall against southpaws.

For LHP Caleb Smith, the Marlins are 1-4 in his past five outings and 1-5 in his past six starts overall. They're also 1-4 in the past five road outings against winnings teams and 0-4 in his past four outings overall against winning clubs.

As far as the Braves are concerned, they're 19-7 in their past 26 games inside the National League East. The Braves are also 13-3 in the past 16 games at home, and 5-1 in the past six at home vs. LHP. They're also 4-1 in LHP Max Fried's past five at home, and 5-1 in his past six overall.

My Pick: Braves (-1.5, +100)


Colorado Rockies (-110) @ Arizona Diamondbacks

O/U: 8

The Rockies head into this one looking to stay hot when RHP Jon Gray is on the bump. Colorado has dropped four in a row, but they're 4-0 in Gray's past four outings, and 5-0 across his past five assignments against divisional foes. They're also 6-2 in his past eight starts on the road, too.

For the Diamondbacks, they're 4-1 in the past five at home, but they have scratched out just seven of the past 23 inside the division while going 4-10 in the past 14 against right-handed starting pitchers. They're also a dismal 3-14 in the past 17 in Game 2 of a series.

As far as LHP Robbie Ray is concerned, Arizona is 0-4 in his past four starts, 0-4 in his past four at home and 0-5 in the past five inside the division. They're also 3-10 in the past 13 at home against teams with a winning record when Ray is on the bump.

Colorado has won six of the past seven trips to Arizona, and they're a whopping 18-5 in the past 23 meetings in this series. The D-Backs are just 1-4 in Ray's past five against the Rockies, and 1-4 in the past five at home against Colorado.

My Pick: Rockies (-110)


Oakland Athletics @ Seattle Mariners (+125)

O/U: 9.5

Play the dog in Saturday's late-night AL West, as LHP Marco Gonzales toes the slab or the M's.

The Athletics are 6-1 in the past seven games overall, and they're 6-1 in the past seven road outings against a team with a losing record while winning each of the past four divisional games. They're also 4-1 in RHP Chris Bassitt's past five road outings. However, the A's are 3-9 in the past 12 starts by Bassitt when working on five days of rest, and they're 0-6 in his past six on a Saturday, while going 1-6 in his past seven starts in Game 2 of a series.

The Mariners are 1-5 in the past six vs. RHP, and 5-21 in the past 26 home games against teams with a winning record. That is the reason they're moderate underdogs at home. However, while they're just 1-4 in his Gonzales' past five home outings, they're 4-1 in his past five starts overall. More importantly, the M's are 4-1 in his past five vs. A's, while Oakland is 1-4 in Bassitt's past five against Seattle. The A's are also just 5-11 in the past 16 trips to T-Mobile Park (formerly Safeco Field).

My Pick: Mariners (+125)
