What shaped as a promising day turned out rather vanilla on Wednesday. The Wolf got off to a 3-0 start and despite the best bet saluting we ended the day 7-7. Thursday will be all about the bounce back so lets get our rally caps on.

MLB Feature Previews

Texas Rangers at Cincinnati Reds (9:10am) (Best)

Tip: Rangers WIN ($1.54)

Texas were blanked for the third time this season on Wednesday when they went down 3-0 to the Reds. They have now lost three in a row and their high powered offence has been outscored 19-6 during that stretch. With their sights set on a looming series against the Indians, Texas will want to win game two of this series and get back to Arlington fired up. After this series they get a 10 game homestand, four of which are against AL heavyweight Cleveland which is going to be a tough series for both ball clubs. Meanwhile Cincinnati are bringing up the rear in the NL Central, although they have only lost two series out of 11 since the break which is very impressive. It won’t be easy in this decider however as they will face Yu Darvish (4-3, 2.75 ERA) who threw his sixth consecutive quality start last outing. He has four earned in his last three starts – all unbeaten – and will be aiming to win his first game on the road despite holding an excellent 2.66 ERA away from home. The Wolf is backing Yu to get the cash.

Atlanta Braves at Arizona Diamondbacks (11:40am)

Tip: Diamondbacks WIN ($1.68)

This series has provided back to back over results in the first two games but this one will be a little different with one of the best pitchers in the league in Zac Greinke (11-4, 4.21 ERA) on the mound for Arizona. He pitched well last outing against San Diego, lasting seven innings and giving up two runs. The snakes are 4-1 in Greinke’s last 5 home starts and 4-1 in their last 5 home games overall. It hasn’t been fun for Atlanta when they travel to Arizona, they are just 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in the desert. Opposing Greinke will be Braves ace Julio Teheran (3-9, 2.90 ERA) who is returning from a recent trip to the DL. He has a solid record against Arizona at 3-1 with a 2.12 ERA. As previously mentioned, the overs has come home twice in this series but with these two hurling on Thursday there is a greater chance that the under comes through in game three. Tipping Arizona can get to Teheran before Atlanta get to Greinke and the under comes home as well.
