This is an enticing matchup for the Blue Jays against Dean Kremer, who has a 6.20 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. He did surprisingly hold them to two runs across six innings in his last start, but given his career 1.47 WHIP, he could have more trouble in their rematch.
If the Blue Jays do hang a crooked number on him, Guerrero would likely be in the middle of the fun given that he is hitting .340 with 60 RBI through 72 games.
Rafael Devers, Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays
To Record a Hit (-250)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.40 units)
The Rays are dealing with a few injuries to their starting rotation, which means Michael Wacha will be given another start. His last one did not go so well against the Mariners considering he allowed five runs and 11 hits across 3 2/3 innings.
The last time Wacha faced the Red Sox, he allowed five runs and eight hits over five innings. His problem has been keeping hitters off base, posting a 1.52 WHIP since the start of 2019. That could lead to another hit for Devers, who is batting .282 for the season and has registered at least one hit in eight of his last nine games.
Ryan Mountcastle, Baltimore Orioles at Toronto Blue Jays
To Record an RBI (+130)
Wager: 0.75 units (win would pay 1.73 units)
Anthony Kay is set to make another start for the Blue Jays, which means the Orioles could score in bunches in this game. He has a career 5.79 ERA and 1.57 WHIP and likely won’t last deep into this contest given that he hasn’t pitched more than four innings in a game all season. That means the Orioles could also see additional at bats against one of the worst bullpens in baseball, too. Mountcastle has 40 RBI this season and generally bats third or fourth when a lefty is on the mound, so I like taking a chance on him to drive in a run at these odds.
