Monday May 9 MLB Picks
Today kicks off our third week of the season with public MLB picks for you. Let’s have another positive week.
Last week May 2-7 record 14-10
Get Sports Strong MLB Season Record 27-17
Oakland Athletics at Boston Red Sox (A’s Moneyline +110)
Athletics (Gray 3-3, 4.84) Red Sox (Buchholz 1-3, 5.71)
Both starting pitchers have struggled this season, but Sonny Gray has had more positive moments than Clay Bucholz has. Current Red Sox hitters have only a .128 BA average against Sonny Gray. A’s are 9-7 on the road, much better then their 5-11 home record. I like the Athletics as an underdog pick here.
Cleveland Indians at Houston Astros (Indians Moneyline – 125)
Indians (Kluber 2-3, 3.35) Astros (Fiers 2-1, 5.35)
Corey Kluber is 4-1 with a 1.48 ERA in his career against the Astros. After getting off to a slow start Kluber is 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA in his last three starts this season. The Astros have only won two consecutive games once this season. I like the Indians to win this game.
Arizona Diamondbacks at Colorado Rockies (Rockies Moneyline -150)
Diamondbacks (Bradley 0-0, 10.38) Rockies (Chatwood 4-2, 2.15)
This will be the seventh time these two teams have met already this season. The Rockies have won five of the first six match-ups. Tyler Chatwood is 2-0 against Arizona this season. In those two starts Chatwood has allowed one earned run over a total of 12 2/3 innings. I am looking for Chatwood to improve to 3-0 against the Diamondbacks this season and picking the Rockies to win at home.
