Here’s an overview of some of the top games in sports being played on June 10. Today, we’re taking a closer look at five games from Major League Baseball and the NBA Finals.
Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves – 7:20 PM ET
The first game we’re going to take a look at today is between the Pirates and the Braves. After yesterday’s loss to Atlanta, Pittsburgh has lost three games in a row. They’ll look to break this losing streak by sending Roansy Contreras to the mound tonight. Contreras is 1-0 as a starter with an ERA of 1.93 over 23.1 innings.
The Atlanta Braves might have a bit of trouble with Contreras on the mound. Still, they have a significant edge in terms of batting over the Pirates. As a team, the Pirates have a batting average of .244 compared to the Pirates’ .224. On the mound for the Braves tonight is Spencer Strider, who is 1-2 this season. We’ll take the Atlanta Braves at home -215.
Miami Marlins vs. Houston Astros – 8:10 PM ET
The series between the Miami Marlins and Houston Astros is one to keep an eye on. The Marlins, although 25-30 this season, have won their last three games. Yesterday, they sealed a 7-4 win over the Washington Nationals. As they head out to face the Astros, they’ll have the 4-2 Pablo Lopez take the mound. Lopez has an ERA of 2.18 over 66 innings pitched.
The Astros have a couple of problems in this series. For starters, the Marlins have the edge in pitching since Houston is starting the 3-4 Luis Garcia. The Marlins also have an edge in terms of batting, with a team batting average of .235. Houston is coming off of a 6-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners as well. With that being said, we’ll go with the Marlins +140.
Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics – 9:00 PM ET
The Golden State Warriors are down 2-1 in this series as we head into Game 4. Stephen Curry suffered an injury in Game 3 but is expected to play tonight. Still, how available he’ll be is a concern that has yet to be addressed. With the Warriors having to play in Boston tonight, this game is going to be a tall task.
Boston had a great game against the Warriors in Game 3, limiting them to just 100 points. Led by Jayson Tatum, the Celtics will need to focus on defense yet again. As long as they can slow the pace of the Warriors offense, they should be set. Only one player is listed on the Celtics injury list, Robert Williams III. Boston comes in as four-point favorites and we’ll take them.
New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Angels – 9:38 PM ET
The New York Mets are coming off of two straight losses to the Padres. The most recent one was an embarrassing 13-2 loss on June 8th. Now, they’ll begin their series against the Los Angeles Angels, a team that has struggled lately. On the mound tonight is the 4-2 Tylor Megill, who is tasked with breaking the Mets losing streak.
The Los Angeles Angels finally broke their losing streak yesterday. They beat the Boston Red Sox behind the arm of Shohei Ohtani. Unfortunately for them, Ohtani won’t be on the mound for them tonight. The Mets are easily one of the best teams in Major League Baseball, so it doesn’t look good for Los Angeles. We’ll take New York in tonight’s game.
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants – 10:15 PM ET
The final game could be one of the most entertaining of the day. The Los Angeles Dodgers, fresh off of an 11-9 win over the Chicago White Sox, face the Giants tonight. On the mound for the Dodgers is Walker Buehler, with a 6-2 record as a starter. Buehler doesn’t only have a strong record, but an impressive ERA as well of 3.84.
On the opposite side, Jakob Junis will get the start for the Giants. Junis is no slouch either, with a record of 3-1 and an ERA of 2.51. The bats of the Giants are pretty good as well, with a .242 batting average and an on-base percentage of .322. This might shock some of you, but we’ll take San Francisco to win at home +125.
