Man what a day yesterday as the NFL roared back with upset after upset! However, my MLB plays were very meh as Kyle would say. With a 1-1 day we land at 0.0 units of profit but hey it's better than losing money. The MLB keeps drawing me in and I have more #HomeRunLine plays to keep you busy while you wait for the opening night of Monday night football. Best of luck if you follow or fade!!!
Record: 13-10 for +2.48 units
F5 ML (+115)
Before you click away after seeing this play, hear me out! Yes, we have cashed on Sandy Alcantara multiple times this year by putting our faith in him. However, the times we have played him and not cashed, the Marlins have not given him the run support needed to be successful which usually came on the road. The Marlines are 22-49 on the road and Alcantara is not much better himself. His era nearly doubles over his home starts, opponents batting average goes up 50% on the road as well. To top it off Sandy doesn't seem to be a night owl as his night starts are some of his worst. The Nationals rocks Alcantara in the only game he pitched against them and that was in Miami. This isn't a play on Nationals more of a play against a bad road team.
St Louis Cardinals

It's Adam Wainwright day! This is one of my favorite days of the week as he has been amazing this season and at 40 years old he is defying the odds. The guy he is going against on the other side is not defying the odds at 41. Do both New York teams just get that much respect by the books, or can the public just not quite New York? This is an easy one for me, I see Wainwright pitching better than Rich Hill in the first five innings. Also, the Cardinals are only one game out of the wild card so a win over the Mets will go a long way in them securing another playoff birth.
Los Angeles Dodgers
F5 -1/2 (-145)
Look, I don't like laying this kind of juice on a baseball game but the Dbacks set the record for most straight road losses at one point this year. So, anytime they are on the road we have to look to fade them. This is not a blind bet by any means as Clayton Kershaw is on the bump and he thrives in September (insert October choke job joke here) and was great against the Dbacks this season in his one start against them. At home, Kershaw has a below one WHIP, in night games his opponents hit below .200, and the Dodgers lineup should be able to get to Gallen with no issues.
