Here are my six picks for Saturday May 7
Boston Red Sox @ New York Yankees (Red Sox Moneyline -122)
Red Sox (Price, 4-0, 6.14) Yankees (Eovaldi, 1-2, 5.46)
For Price and Eovaldi, this is a rematch from a 8-7 Red Sox win on May 1. Despite the early season struggles of David Price, he has been better on the road (2.57 ERA) then at home (8.34 ERA). Collectively, Red Sox hitters have seen success against Nathan Eovaldi. David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez are a combined 15 for 33 (.454 BA) in their careers against Eovaldi. Anything goes in this rivalry, but Price is still the better starting pitcher in this match-up. Boston also leads all of MLB in batting average, while the Yankees rank 27th. With both bullpens being about even, I like the Red Sox to win here.
Los Angeles Dodgers @ Toronto Blue Jays (Dodgers Moneyline -175)
Dodgers (Kershaw, 3-1, 1.96) Blue Jays: Dickey (1-3, 5.73)
I’m betting on Clayton Kershaw over R.A. Dickey. Dickey is coming off of his best start of the season, where he allowed one earned run in 6 1/3 innings. The Blue Jays however, still lost that game and have lost five out of the six games that Dickey has started. There is a lot of juice here, but I like the Dodgers as the money line pick to win.
Minnesota Twins @ Chicago White Sox (White Sox Moneyline -190)
Twins (Santana 0-1, 3.15) White Sox (Sale 6-0, 1.66)
Chris Sale has been great this season. The White Sox come in with the best record in the American League, while the Twins sit at the bottom. I took the White Sox last night and they won 10-4. I am taking the White Sox to win again.
Arizona Diamondbacks @ Atlanta Braves (Over 7.5 Runs, -115)
Diamondbacks (Miller 0-3, 8.49) Braves (Teheran 0-3, 3.72)
Overs are 16-9-3 for the Braves this season. Overs are 16-14-1 for the Diamondbacks. Juilo Teheran has been very sharp in his last three starts but the Atlanta bullpen is shaky. Diamondback starter Shelby Miller is off to a terrible start. Over 7.5 runs scored is not too much to ask for here.
Colorado Rockies @ San Francisco Giants (Two picks: Giants Moneyline -165 and Over 7.5 Runs -105)
13 of the Giants last 15 games have gone over. With Jon Gray starting for the Rockies, 7.5 is a low number here. I am picking this game to go over 7.5 runs scored. I am also picking the Giants to win.
