Atlanta -1½ +140 over San Diego
7:20 PM EST. Max Fried (RHP - ATL) is a 28-year old lefty that just might be the best in the business. Hamstring and finger injuries prevented him from reaching career highs last year but career bests in velocity and BB% along with a full year of dominance against righties suggests there is another level here. Dude has walked two batters in 37 innings with 35 K’s and a 52% groundball rate. He’s sizzling and he’s legit.
Meanwhile Yu Darvish (RHP - SD) is looking riskier with each passing start. He’s struggling to find the plate (43% ball%), and his stuff has been more so-so than dominant. Darvish has a 10% swing and miss rate that is getting progressively worse. That swing and miss rate was 6% last game. Yarvish’s stuff took a step backwards late in 2021 and it’s still trending the wrong way. The signs are there to suggest this is a pitcher in trouble so let’s keep a close eye on it and fade when warranted.
Atlanta -1½ +140 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 2.80)
