Bales’ MyBookie Bets
Cincinnati Reds/Pittsburgh Pirates
Homer Bailey (+175)
Jameson Taillon (-210)
This is a bit of a tough bet because of how well Jameson Taillon has been throwing recently. He has allowed two or fewer earned runs in seven of his last 10 starts, allowing three earned runs in the other three games. Still, the Cincinnati Reds features a high upside offense, as they are averaging 4.6 runs per game over the last week. More importantly, Homer Bailey will be taking the mound Cincinnati. He has struggled with an 0-8 record and a 6.62 ERA over his last 10 starts. He has also allowed five or more runs in four of his last five starts. The Pittsburgh Pirates have been struggling a bit offensively recently, but these two teams combined for 10 runs last night. It should be another high scoring game in Pittsburgh tonight.
Bet 4 units on Cincinnati/Pittsburgh 8.5o to win 3.5 units (-115)
Jhoulys Chacin (-120)
Jhoulys Chacin has been throwing at a high level recently, posting a 6-2 record with a 3.02 ERA over his last nine games. He has also allowed one or fewer earned runs in six of those nine starts. Furthermore, Chacin owns a 2-0 record, while shutting the Chicago Cubs out over 13 innings this season. The Cubs have also been struggling a bit over the last week, posting a 3-4 record over that span. That has not been the case for the Milwaukee Brewers, who own a 6-1 record, while averaging 6.7 runs per game over the last week. They get a matchup against Jose Quintana, who owns an 11-9 record with a 4.21 ERA this season. Quintana has thrown well against the Brewers this season, but they scored five runs against him in their last matchup. These odds are a bit too good to pass up.

Chicago White Sox
Michael Kopech (-185)
This is an interesting spot for the Chicago White Sox tonight. Matt Kopech will be taking the mound, and he has flashed brilliance early in his career. Through 11 innings, he has only allowed one earned run. He’s likely to see regression throughout the remainder of the season, but the Detroit Tigers don’t possess an imposing offense. The White Sox get a great matchup against Jordan Zimmermann tonight. He has been struggling over his last 10 starts, posting a 3-6 record with a 4.47 ERA. He has also allowed four or more runs in six of those 10 games. Furthermore, Zimmermann owns an 0-2 record with an 8.85 ERA through four starts against the White Sox this season.
