Guardians vs. Yankees (-1.5 +125): Greg’s Run Line -1.5 -126

The Yankees’ offense has struggled all season. They get to face Tanner Bibee, who dominated at the minor league level but is making just his fourth career start above the AA level. Yankees ace Gerrit Cole has led the team to victory in all six of his starts, four of which were by multiple runs, allowing five runs across his 40 2/3 innings pitched. 

Mets vs. Tigers Total 8. Greg’s Total 9.2.

The Tigers are last in the league in runs per game and are third-worst in the league in batting average at .222. Mets starter Joey Lucchesi has looked good coming off of injury, allowing three runs across 12 1/3 innings in his first two starts of the season while the Mets’ offense is 20th in the league in home runs.

Giants vs. Astros Total 8. Greg’s Total 9.2.

The Giants’ bullpen is 28th among MLB teams with a 6.40 ERA, and the team has surrendered at least six runs in each of their games in a current four-game losing streak. The Giants also are averaging 2.3 home runs per game on the road, the second-most in baseball behind only the Tampa Bay Rays.
