Mike Lundin‘s Reds vs. Nationals Free Pick
Start Time: June 24, 2017, 4:05 PM
Mike Lundin failed to make it four free pick winners in a row on Friday, but he’s still 3-1 L4 free picks and Saturday’s freebie looks like a clear cut case.
The Cincinnati Reds have won just one of their last 13 games despite scoring a healthy amount of runs. Over is 21-10-4 in the Reds’ road games on the season, and I think we’ll see fireworks when they visit the Washington Nationals on Saturday.
The Nats won Friday’s matchup 6-5 in extra innings and will most likely need plenty of runs again in order to win as they hand the ball to Joe Ross (3-3, 5.98 ERA). The right-hander has allowed nine runs (seven earned) on 18 hits through a combined 11 2/3 innings over his last two starts.
The Reds turn to Homer Bailey who will make his first start of the season coming off an elbow surgery. He was 2-3 with a 6.65 ERA in six starts last year. I don’t like his chances here against a Nats team that rank 2nd in the major leagues for runs scored on the season.
Over is 10-1-2 in Reds last 13 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Over is 9-2 in Nationals last 11 overall. Over is 6-1-1 in the last eight head-to-head meetings.
Free winners are always nice, but the BIG BUCKS are made with the premium picks. Join Mike Lundin with his two premium winners for Saturday. The first play of the day is his Top Rated 10* MLB *TOTAL OF THE DAY* featuring Blue Jays/Royals and the late 8*-rated selection features Mets vs. Giants.
