7:05 p.m. ET: Tampa Bay Rays (35-25) at New York Yankees (44-16)
This AL East showdown features a pair of teams riding hot streaks. The Rays are 7-4 over their last 11 games while the Yankees are 11-1 over their last 12 games. In tonight's series opener, Tampa Bay hands the ball to veteran righty Corey Kluber (3-2, 3.88 ERA) while New York counters with ace righty Gerrit Cole (5-1, 3.63 ERA). This line opened with the Yankees listed as a -200 home favorite and the Rays a +170 road dog. Pros aren't scared off by the big chalk price and have steamed the red-hot Yankees up from -200 to -210. Home favorites -200 or more are 94-36 (72%) this season. When both teams are coming off a day off, the favorite is 48-26 (65%). New York is 41-15 as a favorite, 26-7 at home and 31-11 against righties. The Yankees are hitting .250 this season. The Rays are hitting .233.
8:40 p.m. ET: Cleveland Guardians (29-27) at Colorado Rockies (27-34)
This Interleague showdown features a pair of teams trending in opposite directions. The Guardians just took three of four from the Athletics and are now 10-3 over their last 13 games. On the flip side, the Rockies are just 4-7 over their last 11 games. In tonight's series opener, Cleveland turns to ace righty Shane Bieber (3-3, 2.91 ERA) and Colorado taps fellow righty Antonio Senzatela (2-3, 4.83 ERA). This line opened with the Guardians as a modest -140 road favorite and the Rockies a +125 home dog. Respected money has come down on the surging Guardians, pushing Cleveland up from -140 to -155. Non-division road favorites are 118-60 (66%) this season. Cleveland is 18-9 as a favorite. Colorado is 18-28 as a dog. The Guardians' biggest advantage is on the mound, with a team ERA of 3.66 compared to the Rockies' 5.02. Cleveland is +33 in run differential. Colorado is -64.
10:10 p.m. ET: Los Angeles Angels (29-33) at Los Angeles Dodgers (37-23)
Both of these Freeway Series foes are looking to bounce back from tough stretches. The Angels just dropped two of three against the Mets to fall to 2-16 over their last 18 games. Meanwhile, the mighty Dodgers just got swept by the Giants on the road. In tonight's series opener, the Angels start righty Noah Syndegaard (4-4, 3.69 ERA) and the Dodgers rebuttal with fellow righty Tony Gonsolin (7-0, 1.58 ERA). This line opened with the Dodgers listed as a -190 home favorite and the Angels a +175 road dog. Sharps are betting on the Dodgers to break their three-game losing skid, steaming the home team up from -190 to -200. Favorites off a loss who made the playoffs last year are 121-64 (65%). The Dodgers are 36-23 as a favorite, 17-10 at home and 24-15 against righties. The Angels are just 4-15 as a dog, 12-15 on the road and 21-25 against righties.
