We're going to keep tailing the Boston Red Sox as an underdog until they let us down. Boston is +135 on the road against the Phillies, who have ace Aaron Nola on the mound. Nola hasn't been very sharp in his recent starts and the Phillies have been a very inconsistent team this season. We like Boston to ride the momentum of a Thursday comeback win over the Blue Jays into Game 1 of this series in Philly.
We've been tailing the Giants for a while, too. They are a home dog (+105) against the Dodgers, who have Trevor Bauer on the mound. The Giants are 17-3 vs. the run line as an underdog this season, but this might end up being a stay away. There's still a bit of skepticism that the Giants can keep this hot streak going.
The first-place White Sox, with ace Carlos Rodon starting, visit the Bronx to take on the Yankees, who have won seven of 10. This is an interesting line with the White Sox a slight underdog at -105 and the Yankees at -115. Yankees lefty Jordan Montgomery has given up nearly a hit per inning in his career, and the White Sox have won 10 of 13 and hit lefties well.
This could be a case of the Yankees being a public team and taking on money, so there could be value on the White Sox.
