SEATTLE MARINERS(Miranda) -115 over Oakland A's(Graveman)------After a long layoff,  Graveman came back on August 3rd and got rocked by the sorry Giants---so there's nothing impressive there.  Miranda definitely has the Pitcher Revenge for what happened April 22nd in Oakland;  but overall,  Miranda has put up excellent stats for his season and is clearly bettable in many situations.  Trump's nuclear holocaust warnings today certify that North Korea,  now known to have "gone miniature" with their nuclear payloads and having nuclear warheads tucked safely in subterranean bunkers pointed at America just 5,626 miles off the coast of California, and the nuclear North Korean crisis has become the check on American Imperialism that the Cuban Missile Crisis was.  And so,  out of respect for history,  I will go with the Cuban pitcher here.(Win 7-6..........GWHR by Leonys Martin............Miranda not very good,  giving up 6 ER)

COLORADO ROCKIES(Marquez) +237 over Cleveland Indians(Kluber)-----This line is a joke;  Up 17 units,  the Rockies have been the 2nd best team to bet on this season while the Indians,  at -20 units,  have been 3rd worst team in baseball to bet on.  The Indians HAVE gotten their offense up to speed(after a miserable 1st half),  but the Rockies have been a good offense all year.  Indians have only a .541 winning percentage and regardless of Kluber's stats his blob-sinkers are still weak.   With Christopher Nolan's well-reviewed movie in theaters now..........yeah,  we should see some RBIs from Nolan Arenado.   Indians are on a 2-5 run and...........they're -260 in this game.  Nah,  don't think so.(Lose 4-1.............bottom of the 9th,  1 out,  Rockies up 1-0.........Greg Holland pitching for Rockies:  BB to Encarnacion,  K so now there's 2 outs,  Zimmer walked on 4 pitches,  Holland gets Austin Jackson to 0-2 the Jackson gets a hit.  So,  2 outs bases loaded and Yan Gomes hits the GW Grand Slam on the first pitch.    Good bet,  good price..........I usually can't win with this Colorado team but its Greg Holland who can't close.)

PITTSBURGH PIRATES(Kuhl) -163 over Detroit Tigers(Boyd)------ok well,  Pirates offense is pretty weak.......but Kuhl is improving slightly,  although he still walks almost 1 every 2 innings.  Pirates ARE on a 4-1 run and well,  they're going against Boyd.(Win 6-3...........2RBI by Kuhl as  a hitter.  Andrew McCutchen 2-4, HR..........David Freese 2-4)

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS(Blach) +159 over Chicago Cubs(Quintana)----I cannot believe........how bad the Giants suck.   Quintana has done all right,  but I'd say Blach looks even better as he's gone 7 or more innings in his last 4 starts.(Win 6-3..........Buster Posey 2-4, HR.........Crawford 2-4)
