If you’ve heard of Kohei Arihara, you either know way too much about baseball or you’re lying. He’s Texas’ starter tonight against a potent Padres offense that ranks 5th in the National League in runs scored.

T.J. Zeuch may not be a household name, but Toronto’s starter is expected to outperform LA hurler Andrew Heaney, winning in quality start odds 30%-24%. Despite Mike Trout averaging 3.5 hits, walks, and RBIs, we project the Blue Jays to win a high-scoring 6.5-6 affair at home. The TomBox algorithm gives the cover a 56.4% chance.
The TomBox algorithm is anticipating a close, well-pitched game, which is what you wanna see from NL East rivals. Zack Wheeler has a 39% chance at a quality start to 37% for Charlie Morton. But with both Ronald Acuña and Bryce Harper expected to have strong performances, a 5.1-4.3 projected win for the Philadelphia Phillies against the Atlanta Braves will push this comfortably above the line to gain. The TomBox algorithm gives the over a 58.7% chance.
