The Phillies hope starter Ranger Suarez can get it done versus the Braves. Suarez has a decent 3.62 ERA. His 1.33 WHIP is on the high side. Atlanta bats .262 versus Suarez. The ATL sends ace Max Fried to the mound. Fried is 13-6 with a 2.50 ERA.

But although Fried has thrown well, the Phillies have had success versus the Braves ace. The last time Fried faced the Phillies, he allowed 3 earned runs off 9 hits in an Atlanta loss. Philadelphia can repeat the effort.

Dodgers versus Giants on Friday could be a pitchers’ duel. LAD sends Julio Urias to the hill. Urias sports a 16-7 record and a 2.30 ERA. San Francisco counters with Logan Webb. Logan is 13-8 with a 2.88 ERA. Webb should throw well.

The Dodgers are still the play because while LAD hits .271 versus Webb, the Giants bat .198 against Julio.

Cleveland counters with Cody Morris. The Guardians starter has thrown in 2 games this season. Cleveland lost both games. Ryan and the Twins win this.

It’s almost unfair that Mariners starter Marco Gonzalez has a 10-13 record. Gonzalez has a decent 3.89 ERA. Gonzalez heads into this off a great outing. Marco held Atlanta to 1 earned run in 6 innings of work. The Angels plan on starting 2-6 Tucker Davidson.

The Halos have lost 2 straight when Davidson has made an appearance. Both games were versus top team Houston. Against Seattle, Davidson might have more success. The Angels manufacture a win.

MLB Betting Pick: Angels
