Sunday is another full slate of MLB games, and we have a free pick on each of the games. Let’s take a look at the best free MLB pick for each of the games.
Chicago White Sox -163 at Baltimore Orioles +153 Total: 11
Each of the last two games of this series has been high scoring, but I expect this game is going to be lower scoring. In two of Dylan Cease’s last three starts, he has given up only two runs. The White Sox have a little tougher matchup on the mound too, and 11 runs is too many. Back the under.
Kansas City Royals at Cleveland Indians
If Eli Morgan could find a way to keep the ball in the ballpark, he probably would be a much better pitcher. In Morgan’s last start he looked a little better giving up three runs, but I expect the home run is going to be an issue for him again. Back the Royals to win this game on the money line.
Play: Royals ML
Pittsburgh Pirates at New York Mets
Chase de Jong gets the start for the Pittsburgh Pirates and he has been nothing but a major disappointment this season. Look for the Mets to run up the score, the the Pirates aren’t going to keep this game close. Back the mets on teh run line.
Play: Mets -1.5
Atlanta Braves +111 at Miami Marlins -133 Total: 7
The Atlanta Braves were able to win Saturday’s game, but they paid a big price with Ronald Acuna Jr needing to be carted off. Both the pitchers getting the starts in this game have been strong, and runs are going to be very hard to come by. Back the under.
Philadelphia Phillies +113 at Boston Red Sox -120 Total: 10.5
Over the last two games, these two teams have combined for 29 runs, and there will be plenty of runs scored again in this game. Aaron Nola and Nick Pivetta have both been decent this season, but they have had games where they have both given up plenty of runs. Look for both offenses to find plenty of scoring, and for this game to cash the over.
Detroit Tigers +195 at Minnesota Twins -234 Total: 9
The Twins have had their way with the Tigers this season, but that is going to change in this game. Jose Berrios has been strong this season, but as has Wily Peralta who sits with an ERA of 2.14. Look for the Twins offense to be slowed down in this game and for the Tigers to pull off the big upset.
Play: Tigers ML +195
Cincinnati Reds +125 at Milwaukee Brewers -145 Total: 7
Brandon Woodruff has been one of the better pitchers in the National League, and the Reds bats are going to be cold again in this game. Look for the Brewers to give him just enough run support for the Brewers to win this game on the run line.
Play: Brewers -1.5
New York Yankees +125 at Houston Astros -148 Total: 8.5
The Houston Astros should really be closer to -180 but they aren’t, because it’s the Yankees they are playing. The Astros have a big advantage on the mound with Framber Valdez, Valdez is going to lock down the Yankees in this game, and that will lead to the Astros winning this game on the run line.
Play: Astros ML
St. Louis Cardinals -115 at Chicago Cubs -105 Total:
Adam Wainwright is going to lock down the Cubs' offense, and he will lead the Cardinals to a victory. This is way too good of a price for the Cardinals and this is one of the top bets of the entire MLB card/
Play: Cardinals ML
Oakland Athletics -150 at Texas Rangers +130 Total: 8.5
The two pitchers in this game have similar ERA’s but Chris Bassitt sits with a record 9-2 while Koby Allard sits with a 2.5 record.I expect both offenses are going to struggle against this pitching matchup, and the under is going to cash with ease.
Washington Nationals +185 at San Francisco Giants -215 Total: 8
The San Francisco Giants won 10-4 on Saturday, and it’s not going to get any better on Sunday for the Washington Nationals. Kevin Gausman gets the start for the San Francisco Giants, and he sits with an ERA of 1.74. The offense is going to struggle for the Nationals, and the GIants will come away with the win on the run line.
Play: GIants -1.5
Colorado Rockies +160 at San Diego Padres -179 Total: 9
Runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Jon Gray has pitched better as of late, and even though the Padres offense has been good,they are going to have issues scoring in this game. Back the under
Los Angeles Angels at Seattle Mariners
There are plenty of better options to bet on in this game, but I do believe there are going to be runs scored in this game. Jose Suarez hasn’t been going deep in games, and the Angels bullpen is going to get hit hard in this game. Back the over.
Arizona Diamondbacks +190 at Los Angeles Dodgers -220 Total: 8.5
The Dodgers are big favorites in this game, and I expect they are going to have no issues in this game. Tony Gonsolin is going to lock down the offense of the Diamondbacks. Look for the Dodgers to win this game in blowout fashion.
Play: Dodgers -3.5
