Houston Astros -1.5 vs. Detroit Tigers
The Houston Astros are in Detroit this week for a matchup with the Tigers. Houston came away with a convincing 7-0 win in the series opener, and the odds suggest that this game might play out in the same way.
Houston has been pounding the baseball of late, and they also have a pitching staff that continues to put up low numbers. The Astros are the best team in the American League for a reason, and this game looks like it could be a potential blowout.
Detroit is one of the worst offensive teams in baseball, and they haven’t even hit 90 home runs this season. The Tigers just don’t have the talent to keep up, and they are going to get blown out again.
Take the Houston Astros -1.5 as they beat the Tigers on Tuesday.

Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets (-1.5)
The Chicago Cubs and New York Mets are not in the same division, but they have built up a nice rivalry. Chicago went into New York and took the series opener on Monday, but the Mets will look to respond in this one.
The Mets are huge moneyline betting favorites at -440, and it’s because of who they have on the mound. Jacob DeGrom is 5-1 with a 1.66 ERA so far this season, and he very rarely gives up much to the opposing team.
The Cubs are a team that has some young talent in the everyday lineup, but they just haven’t been consistent enough. Take the Mets -1.5 as DeGrom, and the offense are able to take control in this one.
New York Yankees -165 vs. Boston Red Sox
AL East rivals meet up in Boston on Tuesday night as the Red Sox host the New York Yankees. You can usually throw the records out when these teams meet up, but that might not be the case in this particular game.
New York comes into this game having won two straight, and they have improved to 85-56 on the year. The Yankees will also have Gerrit Cole on the mound, and he is 11-7 with a 3.20 ERA on the year.
Boston enters play with an overall record of just 69-72, but they have won two straight games. The Red Sox just haven’t been consistent enough at the plate, and that’s going to be a big problem in this game.
Take the Yankees -165 as they pick up a win against their most hated rival.
