MLB Jock MKT Pick ‘Em – May 30th – Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers

JD Martinez Over 1 Hit

Martinez has been on fire recently, riding a remarkable 13-game hit streak. This impressive feat showcases his ability to consistently find success at the plate. In fact, Martinez has hit safely in 15 of the 16 games he has played in the month of May, demonstrating his consistency throughout the month. With such a hot hand, Martinez is poised to continue his hitting prowess against the Nationals.

Martinez’s batting average of .315 against right-handed pitchers is truly remarkable. His ability to consistently square up against righties has led to eight home runs and 28 RBI so far this season. Tonight, Martinez is facing the right-handed rookie Jake Irvin, who has struggled on the mound this season. With a 5.32 ERA and a limited ability to pitch deep into games, Irvin has shown vulnerability against opposing hitters. In fact, he has only managed to make it through four innings once this season. This sets the stage for Martinez to capitalize on Irvin’s struggles and exploit the favorable matchup.

Considering J.D. Martinez’s current 13-game hit streak, his consistent success in the month of May, his dominance against right-handed pitchers, and the favorable matchup against Nationals rookie Jake Irvin, we believe betting on the over for Martinez’s total hits tonight is an enticing opportunity. With Martinez’s incredible recent form and ability to capitalize on Irvin’s struggles, the odds are in our favor.

Let’s cash this over on this play.

Tony Gonsolin Under 5 Hits

We are taking the under on hits allowed for the talented LA Dodgers pitcher, Tony Gonsolin, in his upcoming home game against the Washington Nationals. With the line set at 5, let’s delve into the details.  Tony Gonsolin has been in fantastic form recently, boasting an impressive record of 2-1 with a remarkable 2.05 ERA over his last five starts. His performance has been nothing short of exceptional, consistently showcasing his pitching prowess on the mound. Additionally, Gonsolin has been particularly dominant at home, boasting a stellar 2.79 ERA and an impressive 1.03 WHIP for the season. These numbers exemplify his ability to stifle opposing hitters and limit their success at the plate.

Throughout the season, Gonsolin has only allowed five hits in a game once, highlighting his consistency in keeping opponents off balance. Moreover, over his last five games, he has been incredibly stingy, averaging just 2.8 hits allowed per game. This impressive statistic demonstrates his ability to control the game and minimize the offensive output of his opponents.

Now, let’s turn our attention to the Washington Nationals’ lineup, which has struggled to generate consistent offense. Facing a team with offensive struggles only strengthens Gonsolin’s prospects for limiting hits in this particular matchup. The Nationals’ lineup has been lackluster, presenting a favorable opportunity for Gonsolin to capitalize on their struggles and continue his impressive performance. When considering Gonsolin’s stellar recent form, his exceptional home statistics, and the struggles of the Washington Nationals’ lineup, it becomes increasingly compelling to take the under on hits allowed for Gonsolin in this game. The combination of his impressive numbers and the favorable matchup suggests that he is poised for another outstanding performance on the mound.

Hammer the under for Gonsolin’s hit line.
