A stacked Memorial Day weekend slate continues Sunday with 15 games. I want to remind everyone while you’re at a BBQ, having drinks, and playing games with your friends and families to remember why we’re celebrating this weekend; to honor and remember all the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for the freedoms we all share today. Now lets get to it. You will notice I prefer to cap MLB games focused mostly on the starting pitching matchups. In some cases betting the first 5 innings is also a way to avoid teams with bad bullpens.

New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals Tips

The Yankees (34-17) swept the day-night doubleheader yesterday against the Royals (17-34). Today I expect the Yankees to complete the series sweep. The Royals send Danny Duffy to the mound who is 3-1 and has a respectable 3.45 ERA this season. In his career versus New York he holds a 5.54 ERA though. This season the Yankees are 7th in MLB batting .272 vs lefties on the road.

The Bronx Bombers will have Domingo German on the bump for them today. German has been possibly the most pleasant surprise other than 3rd Baseman Gio Urshela for the Yanks this season. German has a record of 9-1 and a 2.60 ERA. In a season the Yankees have been crushed by injuries through May he has stepped up and led this pitching staff. Although German’s only loss this season came against these same Royals at home on April 18th that was his only setback all year as he gave up 3 runs in 6 innings of work. I expect German to have a solid start today and the Yankees bats to continue to stay hot.

PICK: Yankees on the run line -1.5 (-109)

Boston Red Sox @ Houston Astros Tips

Boston (27-25) faces off against Houston’s ace Justin Verlander on Sunday. Verlander is 8-1 with a 2.24 ERA. He leads the league throwing 72 1/3 innings to this point. In his illustrious career he holds a 5-5 record and a 2.89 ERA over 18 starts against Boston. Verlander is holding this Boston lineup to a .200 batting average and at home this season he has a 1.55 ERA in 4 games.

The Sox are sending left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez to the bump today. He is 4-3 with a 5.43 ERA. In his career he is 0-2 with an abysmal 9.90 ERA over 3 starts against Houston. On the road he has a 7.77 ERA in 5 starts this season. Houston is 2nd in the league hitting .290 against left handed pitching at home.

Pick the Houston Astros Moneyline (-168)

Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago WhiteSox Tips

The Minnesota Twins (35-16) look to finish off their division foes Chicago WhiteSox (23-28) and complete their 7th series sweep of the season! The Twins own the best record in baseball going into today. They have a pitching staff that has dominated this year led by Jake Odorizzi. He is 6-2 with a 2.38 ERA. He hasn’t allowed a run in 4 of his last 5 starts.

The ChiSox send Dylan Covey to the mound today. In his career he is 0-2 with a 5.30 ERA in 4 games against the Twins including an 0-1 record and a 4.76 ERA at Target Field. Covey has surrendered 4 homeruns in 20 innings of work this season and I expect that number to climb today with the Twins major league leading 102 homeruns in 52 games so far this season.

Pick the Twins on the run line -1.5 (-137)
