7:10 PM Baltimore Orioles @ Boston Red Sox

: +110
Red Sox
: -121
: 9.5

The Baltimore Orioles (79-73) won 3 in a row until they suffered 2 tough losses in a 4-game home series with the Houston Astros. Baltimore blew an early lead and lost 11-10 on Saturday and then fell 6-3 in 11 innings Sunday. The Red Sox (72-80) lost Sunday night by a score of 2-0 in a rain-shortened game to the New York Yankees. Baltimore and Boston hold the bottom 2 spots in the AL East. The Red Sox were officially eliminated from postseason contention as they were swept by the Yankees for their 5th straight loss. Baltimore’s pitching is a bit more taxed heading into this week while the Red Sox may have benefitted from the rain-shortened game Sunday because they used only one pitcher. The Orioles will be starting right-hander Jordan Lyles (11-11, 4.50 ERA) who is coming off his first complete game since 2012 last week, allowing just 3 hits against the Detroit Tigers. Lyles is 2-2 with a 6.98 ERA in 8 career starts against the Red Sox. Boston will be going with right-hander Connor Seabold (0-3, 10.47) who has been tagged for 11 runs in 7 2/3 innings over his previous 2 starts. He’s still looking for his first victory in the majors as he faces the Orioles for the first time.

The Orioles are 3-9 in the last 12 meetings in Boston.

The Orioles are 1-4 in their last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

The Red Sox are 4-0 in their last 4 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

The Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Bookie: Red Sox -121

🏈 NFL  Betting

8:15 PM Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants

: +1
: -1
: 39.5

The New York Giants will aim for their first 3-0 start since 2009 when they face the Dallas Cowboys in an NFC East battle on Monday night at East Rutherford, N.J. Dallas star quarterback Dak Prescott is out with his fractured right thumb and that should help the Giants because they have lost 9 of their last 10 meetings with Dallas, including both matchups last season. Cooper Rush started in place of Prescott against the Bengals and completed 19 of 31 passes for 235 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. Most importantly, he guided the Cowboys to Brett Maher’s decisive 50-yard field goal as time expired. Currently, the Dallas offense ranks 31st in the NFL at just 11.5 points per game. Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has passed for 364 yards, with 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. Star running back Saquon Barkley has a league-leading 236 rushing yards.

🏈The Cowboys are 6-14 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

🏈The Cowboys are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

🏈The Giants are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.

🏈The Favorite is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings.

The Bookie: Giants -1
