Odds as of May 8th.

Stanton to The Max

The 12-game hitting streak of New York Yankees’ designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton came to an end on Friday against the Washington Nationals. However, Nats starter Max Scherzer is an ideal opponent to get Stanton fired up again.

Stanton is batting .294 (5-for-17) against Scherzer. Most notable, though, are his two home runs during those 17 at-bats.

  • Pick: Giancarlo Stanton 1+ home run (+310)

Good Time Charlie

Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon likes seeing Carlos Martinez of the St. Louis Cardinals on the mound.

Chuck Nazty owns a career .462 batting average (6-for-13) off of the St. Louis righthander. He’s also homered against Martinez.

  • Pick: Charlie Blackmon 1+ hits (-250).
