July 15, 2016 MLB Picks from Z-Code Include: Giants, Blue Jays, Astros, and Orioles
Leading into the All-star break Z-code was on a big winning streak posting a net 7 units win last weekend. We’re looking to carry those wins over and post another big weekend starting with tonight. Here are our top picks for Friday night’s games:
San Francisco Giants at the San Diego Padres
Giants ABC progression on the moneyline starting with 1.89 units to win 1
The Giants are arguably the best team in baseball right now and they racked up a ton of momentum leading into the all star break. They’re playing a weak Padres team on the road and starting Baumgarder whose @away ERA is currently second in the league at 2.38. Theres a strong probability they win in game 1 but given the likelihood of a sweep in this series were advising an ABC progression bet in the event game 1 unexpectedly goes to the padres.
Toronto Blue Jays at the Oakland A’s
Blue Jays ABC progression on the moneyline starting with 1.35 units to win 1
The Blue Jays came into the all star break red hot after winning 5 of their last 6. They’re steadily chasing down the Orioles for the AL east and we at Z-code have them taking the division. The A’s on the road represents a soft matchup for the Jays and an easy series win. This progression is a high confidence bet.
Houston Astros at Seattle Mariners
Astros moneyline 1 unit to win 1.22 units
The astros are coming in as slight underdogs despite being a rising force in the AL West. This is a divisional matchup that could get nasty, but the Astros are the better team and have a significant pitching edge with Fister (ERA 3.55) against Paxton (ERA 4.82). We like the value of taking the Astros with the underdog line here in this single game bet.
Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona Diamondbacks
Dodgers moneyline 2.4 to win 2 units
The Dodgers are a great team with the misfortune of being in the same division as the Giants and will need to fight it out for a wildcard ticket the playoffs. The diamondbacks are the worst team in the same division having lost 5 of their last 6. The dodgers are starting Bud Norris (ERA 1.50 in his last three starts) and have the best bullpen in baseball. On the other side of the coin, the Diamondbacks can’t play defense. This should be an easy win for LA and the value is great in the -120 line. That is why we are recommending this as a 2 unit bet.
Baltimore Orioles at Tamba Bay Rays
Orioles ABC progression on the moneyline starting with 1 unit to win 1.14
The Orioles are currently the best team in the AL East but are fighting hard to avoid being unseated by both the Red Sox and the Blue Jays. This divisional game against the number 5 Rays will be a must-win for Baltimore. Expect this game to be an offensive matchup and the Orioles power-hitting will determine their fate. We’re posting this matchup as a solid pick for a progression based on Tampa Bays inability to sweep and the strong imbalance between the strength of the two teams. The value is great with the Orioles coming in with an underdog line.
