It’s another full slate of games across the MLB on Sunday and there is plenty of value across the board in terms of MLB picks. Let’s take a look at a free MLB pick for each of the games.
Milwaukee Brewers at Washington Nationals
There have been no starting pitchers announced for this game, but both of these teams' offenses have been inconsistent this season and that is going to continue in this game. Look for the offenses to struggle to score and for the under to cash in this one.
Colorado Rockies at Pittsburgh Pirates
Austin Gomber has had issues with giving up walks this season and JT Brubaker has been hit hard each of his last two starts. Look for both of these offenses to really breakout in this game and for the over to cash with ease.
New York Yankees at Detroit Tigers
In terms of talent, the better team is the New York Yankees, but the Detroit Tigers have already secured a series win by winning each of the first two games of the season.The good news for the Yankees in this game is they get to face off Tarik Skubal who has been awful so far this season sitting with a 1-7 record and an ERA over five. Back the Yankees on the run line.
Play: Yankees -1.5
Miami Marlins +139 at Boston Red Sox -167 Total: 9
The Marlins have gotten good starting pitching this season, but at times their offense has been suspect and that will be the case again in this game. Sandy Alcantara will be good again in this game, but the Marlins won’t give him any run support and that will lead to a low scoring game. Back the under to cash on Sunday.
Toronto Blue Jays at Cleveland Indians Game 1
Saturday's game was rained out so this will be a doubleheader for Sunday and this is for the first game of two. The Blue Jays offense was good in the first game of the series and they are going to run up the score in this game. Back the Blue Jays on the money line.
Play: Blue Jays ML
Philadelphia Phillies at Tampa Bay Rays
Zach Eflin has been good this season, but he hasn’t gotten a ton of run support this year and that has led to a 2-4 record overall. Look for both teams to struggle to score and that will lead to this game staying under the total.
Kansas City Royals +115 at Minnesota Twins -135 Total: 9.5
Both of the first two games of this series have been high scoring and that is going to be the case again in this game. Neither of these starters or relievers can be trusted in this game, and that is going to lead to this game going well over the total. Back the over.
Baltimore Orioles +213 at Chicago White Sox -257
Keegan Akin has been awful for the Baltimore Orioles and he is going to get lit up in this game by a very good WHite Sox offense. I don’t love how big of favorites the White Sox are, but they are the play in this game. Back the White Sox -1.5
Play: White Sox -1.5
San Diego Padres -115 at Houston Astros -105 Total: 8
The Padres have no doubt had a lot of success this season, but they shouldn’t be the favorite in this game. The Astors are 8-3 in games that Zack Greinke has started this yar, and they are going to find success again in this game. Back the Astros ML
Play: Astros ML
Cincinnati Reds -110 at Chicago Cubs -110
The Chicago Cubs come into this game hot after having another blowout win on Saturday, Even though they might not have the advantage on the mound, they are the better team in this matchup and they are going to get the run support. Back the Cubs at a nice price.
Play: Cubs ML
Los Angeles Angels +130 at Oakland Athletics -156 Total: 8.5
Cole Irvin hasn’t been as good the last couple of starts, and Jose Quintana hasn’t been good the whole season Quintana comes into this game with an ERA over seven and both offenses are going to have breakouts in this game. Back the over to cash.
San Francisco Giants +140 at Los Angeles Dodgers -179 Total: 7
The Giants have looked good each of the first two games of this series and they are going to find the success again in this game. The Giants haven’t seemed to care who is on the mound, their offense has been strong and they are going to do that again in this game. Back the Giants on the money line.
Play: Giants ML +140
Texas Rangers +135 at Seattle Mariners -165 Total:
The Texas Rangers have been awful as of late winning only three of their last ten games. The biggest issue for this Rangers team has been their offense and they are going to struggle to score again in this game. This is a game where it makes sense to back the Mariners at -2.5 or 3.5 because they are going to win in blowout fashion.
Play: Mariners- 1.5
St. Louis Mariners at Arizona Diamondbacks
The Diamondbacks are one of the worst teams in offense and now they have to face a strong Cardinals bullpen and Kim getting the start who has been lights out this year. Look for the Cardinals to score enough runs to come away with a win on the run line.
Play: Cardinals -1.5
Atlanta Braves at New York Mets
The Sunday night baseball game involves the Atlanta Braves and New yOrk Mets squaring off.The New York Mets offense has struggled to score all season and their lack of scoring is going to keep this game very low scoring. Back the under to cash with ease in this game.
