PLAY-AGAINST TREND OF THE DAY:

-- The Mets are 0-12 SU as a dog when they are seeking immediate revenge for a shutout loss as a dog and their starter has an ERA higher than three.

HITTER-BASED TREND OF THE DAY:

-- The Red Sox are 10-0 SU in franchise history as a favorite of more than 130 off a road game in which Andrew Benintendi hit a home run. Boston has won these ten games by an average of 4.6 runs and they are 6-0 in this spot this season, with every win by multiple runs.

STARTER-BASED TREND OF THE DAY:

-- The Rays are 0-9 SU in franchise history as a road dog with Blake Snell when their bullpen gave up runs in each of their last two games.

ACTIVE TRENDS:

-- The Diamondbacks are 7-0 SU as a 135-plus dog when playing a team that has a worse record and it is post All-Star break and not a series opener. Arizona NEVER trailed in any of the six games and they won every game by multiple runs.

-- The Nationals are 7-0 SU as a home 120-plus favorite after a game in which they did not score after the third inning. Washington scored an average of 10.43 runs in these seven games, and won by an average of 6.43 runs.
