PLAY-ON TREND OF THE DAY:

-- The Astros are 24-0 SU in the history of the database in the second game of a series as a favorite of more than 180 over a team that is worse than 550 on the season when their opponent's starter has an ERA of higher than 3.30 on the season and it is before the All-Star break.

PLAY-AGAINST TREND OF THE DAY:

-- The Giants are 0-28 SU this decade as a 140-plus dog off a game as a dog in which they struck out their opponent at least ten times and stranded at least six of their opponent's baserunners, as long as their opponent is not winless on the season.

HITTER-BASED TREND OF THE DAY:

-- The Dodgers are 8-0 SU off a road game in which Cody Bellinger was hitless in at least three at bats.

PITCHER-BASED TREND OF THE DAY:

MONSTER TRENDS:

-- The Nationals are 0-7 SU as a 140-plus favorite after a one-run loss and it is before the All-Star break. Washington was an average of minus 176.5 on the moneyline in these seven losses, and playing AGAINST them has produced an ROI of +165.0%. In six of the seven games and each of the last four, they never led.

-- The Braves are 7-0 SU since the start of the 2018 season as a road favorite after a game in which they allowed more than ten hits, winning by an average of 5.71 runs
