We should be in for a high scoring game effort in Pittsburgh tonight. The Braves look to continue their 6 game road win streak against the struggling Pirates. Roansy Contreras will start for the Pirates after a few difficult outings (12 ER over his last 13 innings). So naturally the Braves sluggers are looking good today. Austin Riley is an easy choice with better value than Olson. He’s got 31 home runs on the season, the 3rd most of any hitter this season. He also loves to kick off a series with the long ball, something he’s done in 3 of the last 7 Braves series.
How about the Rangers? They’re beating the Twins in an underdog series and subtly improving their record. Few are posting better numbers lately and none have better home run value than Nathaniel (not Nate) Lowe. 2 home runs and 5 RBIs in the last 4 games are only the latest contribution to his excellent month, where Lowe is averaging .395. His opposing starter in Sonny Gray is not exactly prone to giving up home runs but the bullpen certainly is. 66 home runs on the season makes this bullpen the second highest in the MLB, only behind the Cubs. Some great value on a hot hitter rounds out the parlay.
