MLB Picks May 15: Yankees and White Sox Featured Game

The MLB season is nearly 20 percent complete and top teams are beginning to separate themselves from the pack. There is a full slate of games for May 15 with the Yankees and White Sox headlining the action.

New York Yankees versus Chicago White Sox

The Yankees head into play with the best record in the league. They are “burning hot” and +26 on the Power Ranking Indicator. The White Sox are also “burning hot” and +19 on the Power Ranking Indicator. Nester Cortes is scheduled to pitch for the Yankees and Michael Kopech is set to get the ball for the White Sox. Cortes is 1-1 with a 1.41 ERA and +26 on the Pitcher Profit Oscillator, while Kopech is 0-0 with a 0.93 ERA and -66. The two teams have been involved in games “over” the line in six of their last ten games. The Score Predictor likes the Yankees by a 7-3 score with 61 percent confidence. Note that the Yankees have been extremely stable at +13 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Yankees by three runs in a game “over” the line.

San Diego Padres versus Atlanta Braves

The Braves head into play “average up” and +15 on the Power Ranking Indicator, while the Padres are “average down” and +16, respectively. Joe Musgrove is scheduled to start for the Padres and Kyle Wright is set to take the hill for the Braves. Musgrove is 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA and +337 on the Pitcher Profit Oscillator, while Wright is 3-2 with a 3.03 ERA and also a good bet at +119. Note that the Totals Predictor shows the teams trending in games “over” the line and the Score Predictor has the Braves in a 10-1 rout with 53 percent confidence. One thing to consider is that the Braves have been very unstable at -2 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Padres in a road upset because Musgrove has been dominant so far this season. I would avoid the “over/under” bet.

Houston Astros versus Washington Nationals

The two teams enter play heading in opposite directions. Houston is “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator versus “ice cold up” and has a +29 to +3 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator. The Score Predictor has Houston by a 6-0 margin with 67 percent confidence. The teams have been involved in games “over” the line in a combined nine of their last 12 games. Both teams have been consistently performing with regard to their favorite/underdog status. I like Houston in a game “over” the line by three or four runs.

Philadelphia Phillies versus Los Angeles Dodgers

The Phillies have struggled and are still under .500, while the Dodgers look to stay on top in the NL West. Los Angeles has a +22 to +6 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator, while both teams are “average” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Aaron Nola is scheduled to pitch for the Phillies and Julio Urias will get the ball for the Dodgers. Nola is 1-4 with a 3.83 ERA and a poor bet at -600, while Urias is 2-2 with a 2.10 ERA and -105 on the Pitcher Profit Oscillator. The Score predictor has the Phillies by a 5-4 score with 66 percent confidence. Note that the Phillies have been very unstable at -4 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Dodgers at home but avoid the “over/under” bet.

Boston Red Sox versus Texas Rangers

The Red Sox are entrenched in the AL East basement and are “dead” and +4 on the Power Ranking Indicator. Texas is coming in “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator and +21 on the Power Ranking Indicator. The two teams have been involved in games “over” the line in half of their last ten games combined. The Score Predictor likes the Rangers in an 11-1 blowout with 53 percent confidence. Neither team has been particularly stable, both coming in at 0 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Rangers at home by several runs in a game “over” the line.

San Francisco Giants versus St. Louis Cardinals

The Giants have won their last five and enter play “burning hot” and +28 on the Power Ranking Indicator. The Cardinals are 6-4 over their last ten and are “average” and +11 on the Power Ranking Indicator. Both teams have been involved in games “over” the line in five of their last six. The Score Predictor sees this game as a rout in favor of the Giants, 7-0 with 50 percent confidence. The Team Volatility Oscillator shows both teams have been consistently performing with regards to their favorite/underdog status. I like the Giants by three runs, but avoid the “over/under” bet.
