AccuScore Selection #1:

St. Louis Cardinals +104 (@ Cleveland Indians)
Carlos Carrasco vs Lance Lynn

The Cardinals are clear favorites on AccuScore simulations, whilst the oddsmakers have put their faith in Cleveland. We believe the Cardinals are not only the better quality team but have edge on the mound as well, with Lance Lynn starting vs Carlos Carrasco. There’s great value in odds of +104 since the simulations give Cardinals 58.2% chance to win, which translates to odds of -139.

The Cardinals are 12-4 vs an opponent with a losing record and 4-2 as road underdogs

The Indians are 5-10 at home and 7-14 vs an opponent with a winning record

AccuScore Selection #2

Boston Red Sox +114 (@ Oakland Athletics)
Drew Pomeranz vs Justin Masterson

Another underdog selection in an even game between the Red Sox and Athletics. The visitors have struggled at the pitching department, but Justin Masterson has an edge over Pomeranz and the A’s batters. The A’s are only 1-5 when Pomeranz is starting and Masterson has been solid enough. It might all come down to relievers and AccuScore simulations show that Red Sox will prevail with 56.9% probability. Teams are rather even matched, but there’s slight edge in overall quality for the Boston team. The odds of +114 present great value, as the more accurate line would be closer to -131.
