It’s not quite a full slate of games but there is still plenty of action on Thursday cross the MLB with 12 games taking place. Let’s take a look at a free MLB pick on each of the games.
Washington Nationals +130 at Atlanta Braves -140 Total: 9
The Washington Nationals send Patrick Corbin to the mound and the home run ball has been a big issue for him this season. The Braves have guys like Ronald Acuna Jr who are going to take advantage of Corbin’s struggles. Look for the Braves to find offensive success and that will be the difference as the Braves win this game on the run line.
Play: Braves -1.5
Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees
The Yankees send Gerritt Cole to the mound and he has been lights out each of his last two starts. Over the last two games, Cole has gone 13 innings total giving up only ten hits and one run total. His pitching is going to be good, but I don’t trust the Yankees to win this game with a high price. Instead look for a pitchers duel and for the under to cash.
Texas Rangers at Colorado Rockies
When people think of Coors Field, the thought is a high-scoring affair. But runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. The Rockies bullpen has been good but they might not get much action in this game as Jon Gray has been strong this season sitting with an ERA of 2.36 at home. This total is too high. Back the under.
Boston Red Sox +110 at Houston Astros -143 Total: 9
The Boston Red Sox shouldn’t be the underdog in this game. Jake Odorizzi is coming off a good start in his last game, but overall this season he has really struggled for the Houston Astros sitting with an ERA near seven. The Red Sox have a strong offense and they are going to run up the score in this game. Back the Red Sox on the money line.
Play: Red Sox ML
Miami Marlins at Pittsburgh Pirates
These are two teams who have really struggled coming into this game and the offense for both teams has been a big reason why. The Marlins have actually gotten decent pitching so far this year, and that is going to continue in this game. Look for both offenses to struggle to score and the under will cash.
Arizona Diamondbacks at Milwaukee Brewers
The Arizona Diamondbacks have had all kinds of issues this season, and now they have to face one of the best pitching staffs in baseball. Look for Brett Anderson to have a strong start and the Brewers will win this game on the run line.
Play: Brewers -1.5
Minnesota Twins at Kansas City Royals
Kris Bubic was strong in his last start against the Minnesota Twins giving up only one run in six innings. The Twins offense has been inconsistent at best, and they are going to have issues getting the job done in ths game. Back the Royals on the money line.
Play: Royals ML
Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox
The Detroit Tigers have been one of the more surprising teams this season, but their offense is going to struggle in this game. Lance Lynn will be starting on normal rest in this game, and on the season he sits with a 1.20 ERA. The White Sox won’t hae to score many runs, because the Tigers will be held to only one or two. Back the White Sox on the run line.
Play: White Sox -1.5
Cincinnati Reds +104 at St. Louis Cardinals -125 Total: 8.5
The St. Louis Cardinals are coming off a tough series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but they are getting a welcome sight face off with a team like the Reds The Cardinals offense is going to get the runs scoring started early, and that is going to lead to them winning with ease. Back the Cardinals.
Play: Cardinals ML
Seattle Mariners +134 at Los Angeles Angels -161
The Seattle Mariners are playing good baseball coming into this game and they have won seven of their last ten games. Over the last three games, the Seattle Mariners are averaging 5.33 runs per game and they are going to find the offensive success again in this game. Back the Mariners on the money line.
Play: Mariners ML
Chicago Cubs +100 at San Francisco Giants -120 Total: 8
The Cubs are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now winning eight of their last ten games and at a good price, they are going to get the job done in this game. Zach Davies is coming off one of his best starts of the year and the Cubs will give him enough run support to come away with the victory. Back the Cubs on the money line.
Play: Cubs ML
New York Mets +160 at San Diego Padres -179 Total: 7
This is a low total, but runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. Yu Darvish is coming off a bad start but he has een lights out this year. The Mets offense has been a little better as of late, but points are going to struggle against Darvish. Back the under to cash.
