Many teams may implement different strategies in order to stay ahead of pitching and take advantage of hitting matchups. Sometimes this makes predicting outcomes a bit challenging, so use your best judgment.

Additionally since there are only 2 games today, you should consider mixing and matching other picks since the MLB picks are so closely correlated to each other.

Zack Wheeler (PHI) Over 1.5 Earned Runs Allowed

Zack Wheeler and the Philadelphia Phillies will be facing the San Diego Padres. Wheeler has a 2.82 ERA and 26.9% strikeout rate. Wheeler has been averaging 1.1 strikeouts per inning and has a 0.76 HR/9 . The Padres have a 21.5% strikeout rate and 10.0% swinging strike rate as well as a 14.1 ISO.

The Phillies are coming in red hot! This will be a close matchup and I expect Philadelphia to bring the heat. However The Padres are a worthy opponent and Zack does give up contact.
