Bales’ MyBookie Bets
Chase Anderson (+150)
Chase Anderson has been struggling a bit recently, but he has looked outstanding on the road this season. Through 13 road starts, he owns a 4-4 record with a 2.89 ERA. Anderson has allowed two or fewer earned runs in six of his last seven road starts. He also gets a decent matchup against the Chicago Cubs, who have featured an ice cold offense recently. Over the last week, Chicago is 3-3, while averaging 4.2 runs per game. The Milwaukee Brewers are also averaging only 3.5 runs per game, but they feature a 4-2 record over that span. They also get a matchup against Kyle Hendricks, who has been throwing surprisingly well recently. With that being said, he has allowed three or more earned runs in four of his last 10 starts, while struggling against Milwaukee this season.

Aaron Nola (-140)
Aaron Nola has been an elite pitching option in Philadelphia this season, posting a 9-1 record with a 2.21 ERA through 14 home starts. He has also allowed two or fewer earned runs in 11 of those 14 starts. He gets a matchup against the Washington Nationals, who have been playing at a high level recently, but the Philadelphia Phillies own a 60.6% win rate at home this season. Stephen Strasburg will be taking the mound for Washington, and he has been struggling a bit recently. Over his last 10 starts, he has recorded a 3-4 record with a 4.56 ERA. He has also allowed three or more earned runs in five of his last nine starts. The only true concern in this game is the Philadelphia bullpen, but Nola should be able to pitch deep enough into this game for them to only see a few innings.

Boston Red Sox
David Price (-255)
The Boston Red Sox are a team that can always be considered at home, especially in a good matchup. They have been struggling offensively over the last week, but they own an elite 71.4% win rate in Boston. They also get a great matchup against Aaron Sanchez, who owns a 2-2 record with a 6.23 ERA over his last 10 starts. Sanchez has allowed three or more earned runs in six of those 10 starts. He has allowed 11 earned runs in 16 innings against Boston this season. David Price will draw the start for the Red Sox. He has been playing at an elite level recently, recording a 5-0 record with a 2.47 ERA over his last 10 starts. Simply put, the Red Sox own the advantage in virtually every aspect of this game.
