Exciting showdown in Ohio as Noah Syndergaard will take on his former team with the Dodgers visiting Cleveland. With a little over a month left in the season, the Guardians’ season is shot, and the Dodgers continue to chase the Braves for MLB’s best record. With how bad Cleveland has been playing, this is a great chance for the Dodgers to make a move.

Bobby Miller is making the start for the Dodgers; he has been the hero they have been looking for as their rotation has lacked consistency for the majority of the season. Miller has allowed three runs or less in each of his last six starts. With the Guardians averaging 2.4 runs over their previous five, this should be an easy day of work for Miller.

Bobby Miller: Over 16.5 Outs Recorded (-102)

Syndergaard remains to be extremely hot and cold. In his first start with Cleveland, he allowed one run in five and a third against the Astros, but he followed that up with five runs over six innings against the White Sox. Oddly enough, he repeated those numbers over his next two starts. However, there is no way he will continue on that path and only allow one run to the Dodgers. LA has watched him allow massive numbers, and it’s finally their turn to light him up.

Noah Syndergaard: Over 3.5 Earned Runs Allowed (+110)
Over 9 Runs (+100)

Mets @ Braves

We were 1-1 on our Braves’ bets yesterday, and while going back to the well is typically a bad idea, there is no way the Braves lose two in a row to the Mets. This is the best bets article, and the Braves give bettors the best offerings today.

Atlanta put up four runs yesterday, but that will never cut it when your starter gives up 7. Today, the Braves are set up far better with Bryce Elder on the mound facing Tylor Megill. After back-to-back bad outings, Elder bounced back with a seven-inning shutout performance against the Yankees. This, however, will be the first time he faces the Mets this season. 

Megill faced Atlanta in their series last week, and he gave up six runs on nine hits. While Atlanta can hit anyone, Megill is someone they have a strong history against. 

Tylor Megill: Over 3.5 Earned Runs Allowed (-120)
FD: Atlanta -1.5 (-104)
