Hot off the heels of a 2-0 night, Mining the Diamond has reviewed the MLB odds and is set to deliver another pair of winners on Friday night to kick start the weekend with some cash in our pockets.

Braves (8-12, -2.3 units) vs. Brewers (12-11, +4.1 units)
  • Milwaukee is 10-5 (+8.1 units) in night games this season.

  • Milwaukee has averaged 9.6 runs per game over their last three games.

  • Milwaukee’s starter Chase Anderson is 2-0 when starting against Atlanta with an ERA of 2.92 and a WHIP of 1.054. His team's record is 2-0 (+2.0 units) in these starts.

  • Atlanta is 1-6 (-5.0 units) on the road when the money line is +125 to -125.

  • Atlanta is 19-31 (-10.8 units) on the road when the money line is +125 to -125.

  • Atlanta is 7-12 (-3.3 units) against right-handed starters.

Eventually time will catch up to the 43-year-old Bartolo Colon and it appears that it is knocking on his door. Colon got tagged for six runs in four innings in an 8-4 loss to the Marlins and then got hit for four runs on 11 hits in a 4-3 loss to the Phillies but wedged a solid outing in against the weak-hitting Padres. Conversely, the Brewers’ Chase Anderson has been sizzling (2-0, 1.12 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) and the Milwaukee bats have come alive recently. Let’s include the Brew Crew in our MLB picks for Friday night.

Mets (8-13, -10 units) vs. Nationals (16-6, +7.6 units)
  • Washington is 4-0 (+4.2 units) when the total is seven or less this season.

  • Washington is 10-2 (+8.2 units) in night games this season.

  • Washington is 4-1 (+3.2 units) after three or more consecutive wins this season.

  • Washington is 11-4 (+5.4 units) against division opponents this season.

  • New York is 2-6 (-6.6 units) when the total is seven or less this season.

  • New York is 8-13 (-10 units) against division opponents this season.

  • New York is 6-9 (-7.6 units) against right-handed starters.

  • New York is 0-3 (-3.4 units) against Washington this season.

The Nats swept a three-game series in New York earlier this month and now they are back in DC with Mad Max on the hill. Washington has won 10 of its last 11 and has been tearing the cover off the ball, averaging 14 runs per game over their last three! Conversely the Mets have been dismal, dropping six straight with a seventh right around the bend. The MLB odds makers are asking us to lay a fairly stiff price but we believe Scherzer and the Nationals are worth it.
