Every team in the MLB is in action on Tuesday, May 25th, 2021. Let's take a look at each game in Major League Baseball as well as the odds and free betting picks. 

Philadelphia Phillies +108 Miami Marlins -128 Total: 7

The Marlins dominate this starting pitcher matchup with the Phillies' Vince Velasquez and the Marlins' Sandy Alcantara being the probable matchup. I like the Marlins at home and think this game will be decided early.

Pick: Miami Marlins -128

Chicago Cubs -155 Pittsburgh +135 Total: 8.5

The Pirates have not yet announced a starting pitcher for this game while the Cubs will go with Jake Arrieta. I think the Pirates are going to hold all the value in this one, and fading Arrieta has been a profitable venture in the last few seasons. I will take Pittsburgh but check back soon for updates. UPDATE: Cody Ponce will start for the Pirates, and the pick remains on Pittsburgh. 

Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates ML 

Toronto Blue Jays +140 New York Yankees -160 Total: 9

I have to take the Yankees and Corey Kluber after the no-hitter he threw against the Rangers. The Blue Jays' Steven Matz could be in trouble against these Bronx Bombers, as he is a lefty facing a right-hand dominant lineup. 

Pick: New York Yankees -160

Cincinnati Reds +140 Washington Nationals -160 Total: 7.5

The Reds have been far too inconsistent for me to back them here against one of the best starters in the league in the Nats' Max Scherzer. The Reds' Tyler Mahle is coming off his worst outing of the year, so I have to take the Nationals here.

Pick: Washington Nationals -160

Atlanta Braves -112 Boston Red Sox -108 Total: 9.5

The Braves are scoring runs the way we thought they would at the start of the season and the bullpen is getting a bit sharper as well. I like Atlanta's chances in this series as well as in this first game. 

Pick: Atlanta Braves -112

Cleveland Indians -140 Detroit Tigers +120 Total: 9

With the Indians' Aaron Civale and the Tigers' Tarik Skubal on the mound, I think we see plenty of runs from both teams. I expect both starters to be out early so I like the over here.

Pick: Over 9

Colorado Rockies +205 New York Mets -240 Total: 6.5

The Mets' Jacob deGrom is back and I think he is going to dominate in this start against the Rockies. Colorado has been so bad on the road this season and I think the Mets earn a decisive win.

Pick: New York Mets -1.5

Kansas City Royals +148 Tampa Bay Rays -173 Total: 8.5

I do not know how the Rays' Rich Hill can be a -173 favorite here, so based on value alone I am going to take the Royals. Sure, Kansas City's Brad Keller has struggled this season, but as long as he locates he can be a tough pitcher to face. I like the Royals and the plus money. 

Pick: Kansas City Royals +148

Baltimore Orioles +170 Minnesota Twins -200 Total: 9

I think we see a strong showing by the Twins' Jose Berrios and the Twins should be able to score plenty at home here. The Orioles' Dean Kremer should be out early and the Twins could score double-digits in this one. I like Minnesota on the run line. 

Pick: Minnesota Twins -1.5

San Diego Padres +100 Milwaukee Brewers -120 Total: 7

We have two of the strongest pitchers in the NL in this matchup with the Padres' Joe Musgrove and the Brewers' Corbin Burnes. I like the under, as I expect this to be an old-fashioned pitcher's duel. 

Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -120

Los Angeles Dodgers -127 Houston Astros +107 Total: 8

This has turned into one of the more heated rivalries in baseball despite not playing each other often. I am going to side with the Astros here, as Houston has been great at home and the Dodgers have struggled a bit away from Dodger Stadium. 

Pick: Houston Astros +107

St. Louis Cardinals +115 Chicago White Sox -135 Total: 8

The White Sox's bats were ice cold at Yankee Stadium but against the Cardinals at home in this spot, I expect Chicago to wake up. The White Sox's Lucas Giolito just has to be decent for his team to get a win in my opinion. 

Pick: Chicago White Sox -135

Texas Rangers +135 Los Angeles Angels -155 Total: 8.5

I do not think the Angels' Andrew Heaney deserves to be a -155 favorite, even against the Rangers at home. Based on value, I like Texas and the plus money that comes with it. 

Pick: Texas Rangers +135

Seattle Mariners +145 Oakland Athletics -175 Total: 8.5

The Mariners' offense has struggled but against the A's Cole Irvin, I expect some runs to be scored by Seattle early and often. I think the Athletics do the same against the youngster Logan Gilbert of the Mariners, so I will take the over. 

Pick: Over 8.5

San Francisco Giants -175 Arizona Diamondbacks +150 Total: 8.5

Kevin Gausman has been too sharp to pass up in this spot. I think the Giants are the real deal this season and I expect yet another win for San Francisco on the road in this spot. 

Pick: San Francisco Giants -175
