It’s another full slate of games across the MLB on Friday and there is plenty of value with the MLB free picks. Let’s take a look at a free pick on every one of the MLB games.
St. Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs
The St. Louis Cardinals are really struggling heading into this game having won only two of their last ten games and the pitching staff has been a really big issue. Johan Oviedo will get the start for the Cardinals and he has really struggled this year sitting with an ERA of 5.25. Back the Cubs to win this game on the money line.
Play: Cardinals ML
San Francisco Giants at Washington Nationals
The first game of this series was rained out but the same starters are expected to get the start in this game. Max Scherzer sits with an ERA of 2.22 and Anthony DeSclafani sits with an ERA of 3.51. Look for this game to be low scoring, and for the under to cash with ease.
Baltimore Orioles +127 at Tampa Bay Rays -157 Total: 8
Keegan Akin gets the start for the Baltimore Orioles and he has been good since joining the rotation sitting with an ERA of 3.60 and the Rays are goign to have issues scoring. Look for this game to also be a lower scoring game and for the under to cash.
Chicago White Sox -170 at Detroit Tigers +150 Total: 8
The Detroit Tigers are going to get the job done in this game. Lucas Giolito has been good this season but the White Sox are 5-7 in his games this year. His last sgart was against the Tigers and the White Sox dropped that game 4-3 Back the Tigers.
Play: Tigers ML +150
Atlanta Braves -128 at Miami Marlins +113 Total: 7.5
The Atlanta Braves really thought they had the win in extra innings on Thursday against the Philadelphia Phillies but their pitching let them down and they lost in walk off fashion. Their bats were cold in that game and that is going to let them down again in this game. Back the Marlins to get this job done on the money line.
Play: Marlins ML +113
San Diego Padres +142 at New York Mets -171 Total: 5.5
Blake Snell is still a solid pitcher, but he isn’t on the level of Jacob deGrom and that the home team is going to have no issue getting the job done in this one. Look for deGrom to lock down in this one and the Mets will win this game on the run line
Play: Mets -1.5
Colorado Rockies at Cincinnati Reds
Both of these teams have played pretty good baseball heading into this game. When the Rockies have struggled it’s been the pitching staff that has let them down, and in this game that will be the difference. Kyle Freelnad has had issues this season and he is going to get lit up in this game. Back the Rockies on the money line.
Seattle Mariners +130 at Cleveland Indians -150 Total: 8.5
Justin Dunn will be activated from the IL to make this start, and he is going to have ot be near perfect if the Mariners want to win this game. I don’t think he will be perfect, but he is going to slow down the Indians offense and that is going to lead to a very low-scoring game. Back the under to cash with ease.
Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox
This is a big series as these two teams compete for the American League East. The Blue Jays have found success, but I still don’t trust them and the Red Sox are going to take advantage. The Red Sox’s offense has been strong this season and htey are going to tee off on Ross Stripling. Back the Red Sox on the run line.
Play: Red Sox -1.5
Houston Astros at Minnesota Twins
The fact that the Twins are letting Matt Shoemaker get another start is shocking. Shoemaker probably should have been sent down to the minors about three starts ago. The Astros offense is strong and they are going to have no issue getting the ob done in this one. Back the Astros on the run line.
Play: Astros -1.5
Pittsburgh Pirates +219 at Milwaukee Brewers -264 Total: 7.5
The Brewers have been good, but I still don’t trust them at this number and throwing a few dollars on the money line with the Pittsburgh Pirates is the play. This isn’t an elite play, but the Pirates will win this game on the money line.
Play: Pirates ML +219
Los Angeles Angles -138 at Arizona Diamondbacks +115 Total: 9
Shohei Ohtani will get the start for the Angels and he currently sits with an ERA of 2.76. Even though the Diamondbacks offense has been good this season, this is a chance for Ohtani to really lock down. Back Ohtani and the Angels to win this game on the money line.
Play: Angels ML
Kansas City Royals +127 at Oakland Athletics -138 Total: 8.5
Brady Singer only gave up two runs in his last start, but he still gave up eight hits and he is going to get lit up in this game. The A’s offense is going to get whatever they want going against Singer and the A’s will win this game on the run line.
Play: A’s -1.5
Texas Rangers +223 at Los Angeles Dodgers -261 Total: 8
The Rangers have been awful this season and the starting pitching has been a big reason why.This game is going to be over early with the Rangers offense running up the score. Back the Dodgers on the money line to cash.
Play: Dodgers -1.5
