It’s a nice slate of games across the MLB on Thursday with 11 games taking place. Let’s take a look at a breakdown a free MLB pick on each o the games. 

Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles 

Dean Kramer has been better the last few starts for the Orioles, but I don’t think that is going to be enough for the Rays. Rich Hill has gotten good run support this season and that is going to be the difference in this game. Look for the Rays to come away with a victory on the money line.

Play: Rays ML

San Francisco Giants at Cincinnati Reds

The Giants have found a lot of success as of late, but they aren’t the play in this game. Johnny Cueto hasn’t been good his last two starts since injury and he is going to be lit up in this game. The Reds offense has been a bit inconsistent as of late, but they are going to get the job done in this game. Back the Reds ML

Play: Reds ML

New York Yankees at Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers offense hasn’t been good in this series, and the Yankees offense isn’t as good as they should be with the stars they have on their team. Domingo German gets the start for the Yankees and he currently sits with a 3.62 ERA. Look for a lower scoring game that stays under the total.

Play: Under

Washington Nationals at Chicago Cubs

The Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs wrap up their series on Thursday  This series is going to end with a bang, with many runs being scored. Trevor Willaism sits with an ERA over six while Joe Ross sits with an ERA of 5.80. Look for both starting pitchers to get hit hard and that will lead to this game going over the total. 

Play: Over

Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics

Cole Irvin is currently the top starter on the A’s staff, but he hasn’t gotten a whole lot of run support and that is going to lead to a low scoring game. Look for both teams to have issues scoring and for the under to cash.

Play: Under

Minnesota Twins at Los Angeles Angels Game 1 

The Minnesota Twins can’t be trusted it doesn’t seem and it doesn’t matter who they send out to the mound. The offense has been inconsistent, and when the offense is strong, it seems the pitching lets them down. Even without Mike Trout, the Twins will get to Lewis Thorpe and that will be the difference. Back the Angels ML

Play: Angels ML

Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies 

The Marlins have struggled and over their last ten games they sit with a 3-7 record overall. Vince Velasquez has been strong since entering the lineup, and he is going to be lights out in this game. Look for the Marlins offense to struggle and that will lead to the Phillies winning this game on the run line.

Play: Phillies -1.5

Minnesota Twins at Los Angeles Angels Game 2

The Minnesota Twins can’t be trusted it doesn’t seem and it doesn’t matter who they send out to the mound. The offense has been inconsistent, and when the offense is strong, it seems the pitching lets them down. Jose Berrios is on the mound for the Twins in this game, but I don’t think he is going to be enough in this game. Back the Angels ML

Play: Angels ML

Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays 

The Red Sox have one of the best offenses in baseball and they send out their best pitcher on the mound in this game. Nick Pivetta will get the start for the Red Sox and coming into this game he sits with a 5-0 record and an ERA of 3.16 ERA. He will lock down the Blue Jays and go deep in thsi game. Back the Red Sox

Play: Red Sox ML

Pittsburgh Pirates at Atlanta Braves

Drew Smyly will get the start for the Braves and he sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 5.23. THe Pirates pitching staff has also been an issue this season. Look for the Braves offense to find success in this game and that is going to be the difference in this game. Back the over to cash. 

Play: Over

Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Dodgers

This is a great chance for value with the Diamondbacks in this game as big underdogs. Merrill Kelly will get the start for the Diamondbacks and he has been strong this year and each of the last three games he has given up three runs or less. In this game look for Kelly to find enough success to come away with the victory. 

Play: Diamondbacks ML
