Blue Jays vs. Twins Free Pick April 17, 2019

The Toronto Blue Jays picked up a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday. I expect another slugfest here Wednesday night with Blue Jays’ rookie right-hander Trent Thornton going toe-to-toe with Twins righty Jake Odorizzi. Thornton (0-1, 4.61 ERA) tossed five scoreless innings in his MLB debut on March 31, but his past two …

Reds vs Dodgers Free Pick April 15, 2019

The Los Angeles Dodgers are off to a disappointing start to the season but snapped a six-game slide with a 7-1 win over Milwaukee on Sunday. Here the Dodgers will hand the ball to left-hander Clayton Kershaw (2018: 9-5, 2.73 ERA) for his season debut. It will no doubt give them a morale boost to …

Padres vs. Diamondbacks Free Pick April 14, 2019

The San Diego Padres have a chance of sweeping this four-game series following a 5-4 triumph on Saturday. The under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings at Chase Field, and I think today’s pitching matchup suggests a lower-scoring contest than what we saw yesterday. Arizona right-hander Zack Greinke (1-1, 7.16 ERA) has had a …

Pirates vs Cubs Free Pick April 10, 2019

The Chicago Cubs opened this series with a 10-0 triumph on Monday, but I think they’ll face far more resistance from the Pirates here in Game 2 of the series. Pirates’ right-hander Jordan Lyles (0-0, 0.00 ERA) pitched five scoreless innings in his season debut against the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. “He’s got a good …

Mariners vs Royals Free Pick April 9, 2019

The Kansas City Royals are heading into this contest on a seven-game losing streak after taking a 13-5 loss to the Seattle Mariners in the opener of this series on Monday. The Mariners have started the season on fire winning 10 of their first 12 games, and I think they’ll keep the momentum going Monday …

Pirates vs Cubs Free Pick April 8, 2019

The Chicago Cubs lost for the seventh time in eight games as they suffered a 4-2 defeat at Milwaukee on Sunday. I think they look like a good fade again here when hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates for their home opener Monday afternoon. The Bucs are coming off a four-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds and …

Red Sox vs Athletics Free Pick April 4, 2019

The Oakland Athletics had shut out the Boston Red Sox in back-to-back games before taking a 6-3 loss on Wednesday. I like the A’s to bounce back here Thursday to deny Boston to split this series. A’s left-hander Brett Anderson (1-0, 0.00 ERA) tossed six scoreless innings against the Halos in his season debut and …

Cardinals vs Brewers Free Pick March 29, 2019

The St. Louis Cardinals came up short on Opening Day as they took a 5-4 loss here at Miller Park. I like the Cards to get revenge here in Game 2 of the series with right-hander Jack Flaherty (2018: 8-9, 3.34 ERA) on the mound. Flaherty went 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in four starts …

Dodgers vs. Brewers NLCS Game 6 Free Pick October 19, 2018

The first game of this series went way over the total when the Dodgers won 6-5 in Chavez Ravine back on October 12. We’ve seen four straight low-scoring contest since (three unders and a push), and I think that’s a trend likely to continue in this must-win game for the Brewers with the Dodgers owning …

Tigers vs Twins Free Pick September 25, 2018

The Detroit Tigers visit the Minnesota Twins Tuesday night for the opener of a three-game series. The Twins have won five of their last seven, but I think the value is on the underdog Detroit in this matchup. The Twins are expected to use an opener and then hand over the ball to 23 year …
