Hot teams always have concerns as the All-Star Break approaches. No one wants to jeopardize their momentum when everything is going well. However, following last night’s games, it is evident that the NL East remains unchanged. The Braves delivered a crushing 9-0 victory over the White Sox, the Marlins narrowly lost their game, and both the Phillies and Mets experienced significant defeats. The break had no impact on the status quo.

The Braves are back at it today with Spencer Strider on the bump, and it’s pad the stats day for him. The White Sox strike out more than most teams, and seeing the line Charlie Morton put up last night, there is no doubt Strider will have a fun night.

Chicago is fortunate enough to play in the same division as the Royals, as they will always be there as padding between the Sox and last place.

#2 – Tony Gonsolin Over 3.5 Strikeouts

After starting the season as he finished last year, Tony Gonsolin has struggled of late. Gonsolin has allowed 19 runs over his previous four starts.

Prior to this stretch, he hadn’t allowed more than three runs in a game. Due to injuries and less-than-stellar performances from the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation, he is the least of their concerns; LA is simply hoping some time off will correct things for the righty.

Gonsolin has an easy one today, facing the Mets. New York failed to score yesterday, and with a bit of luck, they will put up a similar performance today. The Mets are not a team that strikeouts much, but after Julio Urias served them seven Ks over six innings, I’m confident Gonsolin can find four.

#3 – Summer League: Jordan Walsh Over 22.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

Jordan Walsh has emerged as a standout player in this year’s Summer League. Drafted by the Boston Celtics in the second round, Walsh will be vying for a prominent role on their roster in the upcoming season. While it’s important not to overreact to Summer League performances, Walsh has undeniably caught attention and is a name to keep an eye on when the regular season begins.

In his three Summer League games so far, Walsh has been averaging an impressive 18.3 points per game. He has shown efficiency by shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from beyond the arc.

Walsh’s scoring ability alone is likely to surpass the 22.5-point mark, and his performance in rebounds and assists just adds value to this bet.

#4 – Brittney Griner Over 15.5 Points

In last year’s WNBA All-Star game only three players had more than fifteen points. It’s exactly what one would expect from a WNBA game, but if there’s one person who is going to top that figure, it’s Griner. She’s the poster child of the WNBA this year, and I fully expect the ball to continually be fed to her.

#5 – Jewell Loyd Over 15.5 Points

Jewell Loyd is the WNBA leader in points, so it’s a wonder why she doesn’t have the highest prop for today. Loyd should be the favorite for today’s leading scorer, but the fact that she’s not just created more value for bettors.

This bet needs little explanation as it’s a no-nonsense move. Bet it and forget it.
