Pirates vs. Marlins Free Pick June 16, 2019

The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Miami Marlins will clash for the tie-breaker of a three-game series Sunday afternoon, and I think both teams will keep the scorekeepers at Marlins Park busy today. Pirates’ right-hander Chris Archer (3-6, 5.73 ERA) owns a 2.42 ERA in four career starts versus Miami, but he’s having a poor year …

Diamondbacks vs Nationals Free Pick June 13, 2019

The Washington Nationals have won 12 of their last 17 games, but note that they had Wednesday off and are just 1-11 in their last 12 games following an off day. Tonight they’ll come up against a nightmarish opponent in red hot Arizona right-hander Zack Greinke (7-2, 2.87 ERA) who tossed six innings of a …

Cubs vs Rockies Free Pick June 10, 2019

The Chicago Cubs are 6-1 in their last seven overall, but they’re just 1-6 in their last seven road games vs. a team with a winning home record and I think we’re getting a fair price on the Colorado Rockies here at Coors Field Monday night. The Rockies’ are a perfect 6-0 in right-hander German …

Diamondbacks vs Blue Jays Free Pick June 9, 2019

The Arizona Diamondbacks are 37-14 in their last 51 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400 and here they’ll face a Toronto team that is just 23-41 on the season and has dropped 13 of its last 16 overall. Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray (4-3, 3.62 ERA) is coming off back-to-back losses after …

White Sox vs Royals Free Pick June 7, 2019

The Chicago White Sox are 6-1 in the last seven meetings with Kansas City and swept the Royals over three games at home last week. White Sox righty Ivan Nova (3-5, 6.24 ERA) tossed five innings of one-run ball in a 2-1 win in that series. Nova held Cleveland to three earned runs in seven …

Phillies vs Padres Free Pick June 3, 2019

The Philadelphia Phillies come to San Diego leading the National League East. I think they’ll open this series with a win behind right-hander Aaron Nola (6-0, 4.18 ERA). Nola is 4-0 with a 2.96 ERA over his last five starts and he has posted a 2.65 ERA in five career meetings with the Padres. He …

Giants vs. Orioles Free Pick June 2, 2019

The San Francisco Giants recorded an 8-2 triumph over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. I think we’ll see way less action over home plate here in the rubber match of this three-game set. Gabriel Ynoa (0-1, 5.40 ERA) will toe the rubber for the Orioles for his second start of the season. Ynoa held the Tigers to …

Brewers vs Pirates Free Pick May 31, 2019

The Milwaukee Brewers opened this series with an 11-5 victory Monday night. They’re now 14-14 on the road this season while the Pittsburgh Pirates are just 10-15 home at PNC Park. Tonight Jhoulys Chacin (3-6, 4.88 ERA) will toe the slab for the Brew Crew. The 31-year-old righty has struggled in his day starts (9.18 …

Nationals vs Braves Free Pick May 29, 2019

The Washington Nationals have won four of their last five games, a 5-4 triumph in Tuesday’s matchup with the Atlanta Braves included. The Braves are 5-0 in their last five games following a loss, and I like the home team to bounce back here against Washington right-hander Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez (0-6, 5.10 ERA) has been …

Tigers vs Orioles Free Pick May 27, 2019

Both the Detroit Tigers and the Baltimore Orioles have won more games on the road than at home this season, and I think the visitors are worth a look here at Camden Yards Monday afternoon. The Orioles are a pathetic 6-19 in front of the home town crowd and right-hander Gabriel Ynoa (0-1, 5.60 ERA) …
