Lock, Fade And Stay Away (7/29/20)


Oakland A’s -145

Yes, if you follow my twitter @cjoneswho1212 …. you know that I locked the A’s in last night before their 8-3 loss to the Rockies. Today I believe will be a different day for Oakland. The pitching matchup of German Marquez for the Rockies going up against Frankie Montas of the A’s should be a very good one. In Marquez’s season debut, he pitched six innings and only gave up one run in a loss against Cincinnati. While Montas pitched four innings and giving up only one run in a no decision bid in his season debut. I think the A’s will get to Marquez early, and them being good as home as they are they won’t look back. Lock in Oakland in the early afternoon game.


San Diego Padres -180

I am very high on the Padres this season, and I get that they won three out of four against the Diamondbacks. Then last night they beat a Giants lineup that isn’t at full strength, but they continue to get the job done night in and night out. San Diego’s lineup is very good in my opinion and I think they keep up the work tonight. Tonight’s pitching matchup of Chris Paddack for the Padres, and Johnny Cueto for the Giants. I think it is safe to say which starter I’ll go with tonight. Lock in the Padres tonight as their lineup stays hot, and Chris Paddack puts on a gem for them on the road tonight.


Detroit Tigers -130


Detroit’s lineup will continue to be inconsistent all season long, and tonight we should see the lack of consistency. The pitching matchup of Danny Duffy for the Royals, and Matthew Boyd for Detroit is going to go one way. That way is Duffy pitching a solid effort, and Kansas City getting ahead of the Tigers early. Boyd did not look good in his season debut 5 IP while giving up 4 ER and two strikeouts in a losing effort to Cincinnati. Does he bounce back tonight against Kansas City? He does not, and you should fade Detroit tonight because of it.


Stay Away: 

Under 8.5 (Milwaukee vs. Pittsburgh)

Milwaukee and Pittsburgh are entering their final game of their three games series, and it has been a good one if you have taken the over in those games. Milwaukee won the first game of the series 6-5, and Pittsburgh took game two last night 8-6. Both teams pitching staffs aren’t the greatest and we have seen it first hand this series. Look to see more of the same tonight in the series finale. Both offenses have been good this series and tonight will be no difference. Stay far away from the under in this game.
