Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 9.0 Evaluation: Loss (-900) - Final Total 7
Over 9.5 (100) @ caesars
Righty/Righty matchup in the desert today, with De Leon and Luke Weaver, who is god awful. I still think the Reds offense will come crashing back to earth at some point, but today is not that day. I wrote a ton about how bad Weaver is when we faded him the other day, but we're fading De Leon with him today.


De Leon is 3-0 in his career on the road as a starter, but he has a 8.86 ERA in those starts. He's also faced the Dbacks once in his career, and he gave up 6 runs in 3 2/3 IP in that one start. His underlying numbers are better this year, but he still gave up a barrel rate of 20% in his one start, and that was against the Pirates. Both bullpens are over 10 IP L3 games, so I think we'll get a good number here.


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
