Huge Pitching Showdown During Game 1 of Nats vs Cards
If you’re looking for a sweet pitchers’ duel for Monday night, look no further than Game 1 between the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals.
That’s because Stephen Strasburg (17-6, 3.49 ERA) will take the hill for the Nets, while Dakota Hudson (15-7, 3.38 ERA) will be on the bump for the Cards. If you’re expecting a lot of offense for this one, guess again. With these two studs pitching, it should be quite low scoring.
Because of this, taking the UNDER 8.5 runs for this particular game is the side we are backing.

Severino Make His 2019 MLB Debut
For Yankees fans, the long wait has finally come to an end. On Tuesday night, starting pitcher Luis Severino will make his season debut. He’s been out with a shoulder injury.
However, he’s back to full health and will make his start right before the Yankees get ready to begin their postseason run. Which ‘Sevvy’ can the NY faithful expect during his first appearance?
Though Severino may be a little rusty, he’ll be facing an Angels lineup that won’t feature Mike Trout, as he’s out for the rest of the season. Go with the Yankees to win this one.

MadBum Aims to Quiet the Red Sox on Thursday Night
In the series finale between Boston and San Francisco, ace left-handed pitcher Madison Bumgarner will start for the Giants. As we all know, the man is brilliant pitching in the fall.
Unfortunately for those headed to Fenway Park for this matchup, it might not end up being the best of days for Boston. After winning the World Series last year, 2019 has been a nightmare for this club. Bumgarner will look to make things even worse for them.
Though Boston’s lineup is stacked, we think SF will be able to pull this one out and leave Boston with a victory.

Who has the advantage? Per Sports Interaction, Los Angeles has 2.00 odds, while Atlanta has odds listed at 3.10. After that, the next closest team are the St. Louis Cardinals at 9.50.
With how well the Dodgers have played all season, they look to be the team to beat. Think they have what it takes? Place a bet on Boys in Blue today.
