Earliest Cash (7 inn game) - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #981 Saturday 8* OVER 6 runs in Washington Nationals vs San Francisco Giants @ 2 ET (Game 1 of DH) - I know that yesterday's game was a 1-0 pitchers duel and that Kevin Gausman has been pitching phenomenally well for the Giants. However, in my opinion, there is a reason he opened up in the -150 range on the money line here. It makes the side look almost "too easy" here given his long-term numbers. That said, upon further review, the odds makers are likely on to something here as the Nationals have a number of hitters in their lineup who have enjoyed success against Gausman. He has a 5.24 ERA in his 9 career games against the Nats. Don't be surprised if Washington's lineup surprises many by coming up with a strong performance here. On the flip side, the Nationals starter is likely to get rocked. Erick Fedde will be making his first starts since May 16th and he was not that impressive in a rehab start in the minors. Also, the Giants have been one of the hottest teams in the league and have a great shot at knocking him around here. Fedde is 1-3 with a 7.56 ERA at home this season with opponents hitting .294 against him. Fluke? I don't think so! Fedde also was winless in 6 games (5 starts) at home last season and got hit at a .277 clip in those appearances. Home has not been good to him and the Giants take advantage and we have a very low total to work with here. 8* OVER 6 runs in Washington (Game 1 of DH)

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.
