APRIL 14 FREE MLB PICK

Friday the 13th lived up to the name. After consistently making no more than two plays a day, we made three picks yesterday and went 1-2. This drops our record to 10-8 on the season up 1.44 units.  We are scaling back to just one pick for tonight for three units.

Pittsburgh Pirates at Miami Marlins 7:10 pm EST

Projected Starters: Pirates: Taillon (2-0, 1.26) at Marlins: Richard (0-1, 8.64 ERA)

More juice then we have laid yet this season, , but I don’t expect the Pirates to lose again to the Marlins with Jameson Taillon on the mound.

 

My Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates moneyline (-152) Three Units

THREE FREE FRIDAY 13TH PICKS

Pittsburgh Pirates at Miami Marlins 7:10pm EST

Projected Starters: Pirates: Kuhl (1-0, 5.06 ERA) at Marlins: Peters (1-1, 9.35 ERA)

Going with the Pirates with solid value here against the struggling Marlins. Pirates are 5-1 on the road this season and Miami is 2-7 at home.

The Over is 8-4 in Pirates games this season.

My 2 Picks for this game:

1) OVER 8 Runs Three Units

2) Pittsburgh Pirates moneyline (-123.0) Two Units Units

Toronto Blue Jays at Cleveland Indians 7:10pm EST

Projected Starters: Toronto: Stroman 0-1, 8.38 ERA) at Indians: Clevinger (0-1, 0.71 ERA)

Stroman is off to a tough start this season but is 2-0 with a 1.20 earned run average at Progressive Field in his career. Overall against Cleveland has a 4-1 record and 2.17 earned run average in his career.
The Indians jumed all over a good pitcher in Michael Fulmer, but Fulmer’s past success against Cleveland does not match what Stroman has done.
Cleveland starter Mike Clevinger is one of the more under rated young pitchers in baseball right now.

Under is 7-1 in last 8 Cleveland games. Under is 8-4 in Toronto games this season.

My pick: UNDER 9.0 Runs  Three Units

APRIL 12 MLB FREE PICK

Yesterday the Indians -1.5 were an easy cover with a 5-1 win over Detroit. We are currently now 9-5 on the season, up 7.8 units.  Here is our play for Wednesday April 11.

Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians 6:10pm EST

Projected Starters: Tigers: Fulmer (1-1, 0.68 ERA) at Indians: Bauer (0-1, 2.08 ERA)

The total has finished at less than  eight runs combined in 7 out of their last 8 games Detroit has played.

The total has finished at less than seven runs in the last 7 Cleveland games.

Both teams have been poor offensively this season but pitched well.

I am aware that the OVER is 10-1 in Bauer’s last 11 starts against Detroit, but this will be Bauer’s first start against Detroit since May 2017. Since August 2017 Bauer has been pitching the best of his career.

With the strong pitching match-up and the run total swinging all the way from 7.5 to 8.5, I feel the time is right for the UNDER

 

My pick: UNDER 8.5 Runs  Three Units

APRIL 11 MLB FREE PICK

Yesterday was our worst MLB day so far this season going 0-2.  We are currently now 8-5 on the season, still up 5.8 units.  Here is our play for Wednesday April 11.

Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians 6:10pm EST

Projected Starters: Tigers: Zimmerman (0-0, 8.71 ERA) at Indians: Carrasco (2-0, 5.40 ERA)

We took a chance on the Tigers last night as a +182 underdog against the Indians, and the Tigers fell 2-1. I really thought yesterday’s game was good value and the second best chance the Tigers would have at taking at least one game in this four game series.  Stranger things have happened, but tonight’s match-up is not set up well for the Tigers.

The Indians are 11-1 in Carrasco’s last 12 starts against the Tigers.  Last season in six starts against Detroit, Carrasco was 4-1 with a 1.82 earned run average. Carrasco’s one loss to Detroit came in a 4-1 game on April 16, 2017 where Tiger’s pitcher Matt Boyd out-dueled him.

Unlike Boyd, the Tiger’s projected stater Jordan Zimmerman has not been able to put together quality starts against Cleveland in his past. Zimmerman is 0-4 with an ERA of 10.88 in his career against the Tribe.  Zimmerman’s first two starts this season have also left little reason for optimism. So far this year he has allowed 15 hits and 10 earned runs over only 10 1/3 innings of work.

My biggest concern here working against the Indians is the fact that Cleveland has only scored a total of 14 runs, and no more than three runs total in any game, over their last seven games played overall. But  Zimmerman may be just what the doctor ordered for the Tribe bats to get going.

Detroit has not been an offensive juggernaut themselves so far. The Tigers have already been shutout three times this season and limited to just one run in two other games.

 

My pick: Cleveland Indians -1.5 (-123)  Two Units

APRIL 10 MLB TWO FREE PICKS

We picked up another win yesterday with an easy cover on the under of the Indians 2-0 win over the Tigers. This makes our MLB record 8-3 on the season and up 9.8 units so far.  Here are our plays for Tuesday April 10.

Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians  6:10pm EST

th-1

Projected Starters: Tigers: Boyd (0-1, 1.50 ERA) at Indians: Tomlin (0-1, 24.00 ERA)

Tigers projected starter Matt Boyd, pitched six innings in a 1-0 loss to the Royals in his first start this season, allowing four hits and only one run. In Boyd’s career he is 1-2 against Cleveland, despite having an earned run average of only 1.91 over 28 1/3 innings pitched.

Indians projected stater Josh Tomlin will hope for a better result than he experienced in his last start. On April 3, Tomlin completed three innings, allowing 8 hits, 8 earned runs and four home runs against the Angels.

Over his career, Tomlin is 6-5 when starting against Tigers with an ERA of 4.84. Despite the rebuilding movement in Detroit, current Tigers hitters still have a lifetime .308 batting average against Tomlin.

With the Tigers currently an underdog in the range of +170 to +185, I feel like this is a good opportunity to take the Tigers to pull off the upset.

My pick: Detroit Tigers Moneyline +182

New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox  7pm EST

red_sox_yankees_logo

Projected Starters: Yankees: Severino 2-0, 1.38 ERA) at Red Sox: Sale (0-0, 0.82 ERA)

Both projected starting pitchers in this match-up have been great so far this season.  Luis Severino comes in with a 2-0 record, 1.38 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 14/4 strikeout to walk ratio over 13 innings this season. Current Red Sox hitters have a career .226 batting average against Severino, with Andrew Benintendi by far having the most success (6 for 14, 2 HR 7 RBI).

 In his first two starts this season, Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale has only allowed one run over 11 innings. Sale has a 0.82 WHIP on the season with 15 strikeouts against three walks.  Current Yankee hitters have a .183 career batting average against Sale with only one home run (Tyler Austin) in 126 at bats. Aaron Judge is 0 for 12 against Chris Sale with 10 strikeouts.

 The Under is 5-2 in Severino’s career starts against Boston. The Under is 8-4 in Sale’s career starts against the Yankees.

 At this moment some sportsbooks still have the total at 7.5 but I expect that the line will end up at 7 by game time. I definitely expect a low scoring pitchers duel here.


My pick: UNDER 7.5 Runs

 

Good luck everyone!

APRIL 9 MLB FREE PICK

We spilt yesterday with no loss or gain in profit. This makes our MLB record 7-3 on the season and up 7.8 units so far.  I feel that the line on today’s pick will change quickly so I want to give a very quick prediction.

Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians  6:10pm EST

Projected Starters: Francisco Liriano (1-0, 1,35 ERA) at Indians: Corey Kluber (0-1, 2.40 ERA)
Cleveland’s last four games have gone under including the last three games at home. The Tribe have only scored a total of eight runs over those last four games. Corey Kluber will be on the mound for Cleveland and the under is 2-0 when he starts this season.

Five of the last six Detroit Tigers games have gone under.

With the cold weather in Cleveland and the pitching match-up I like the under here.

My pick: Under (8.0 runs) 

Good luck and play ball!

APRIL 8 MLB FREE PICKS

The Rockies picked up the 3-2 win over the Braves in the 10th inning last night, giving us a 6-2 record on the season and up 7.8 units so far. For the second time this season, we have a two pick MLB day

Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies  1:35pm EST

Projected Starters: Marlins: Trevor Richards at Phillies: Jake Arrieta
Jake Arrieta will be making his debut with the Phillies. In his career Arrieta is 3-0 when starting against the Marlins with an earned run average of 1.38.  This Marlins lineup appears to be even weaker than what Arrieta has faced against Miami in the past. Through the first eight games of this season, the Marlins hitters are tied for last in all of MLB with only two total homeruns hit as a team.

Marlins rookie right-hander Trevor Richards will be making his second career start.
Richards allowed five runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings against Boston in his debut.

The Marlins are currently on a four game losing streak where they have been outscored 36-6. All six of the Marlins losses this season have been by more than one run. The Phillies are big favorites here, rather than laying the juice we are playing the run line for much better value.

My pick: Phillies (-1.5) 

Los Angeles Dodgers  at San Francisco Giants  4:05pm EST

Projected Starters: Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw at Giants: Ty Blach 

This is the same pick we won with on opening day this season when Ty Blach outdueled Kershaw on the way to a 1-0 Giants victory.

In his career Kershaw is 22-10 when starting against San Fransico with an ERA of 1.58. The under is 24-7-2 in the last 33 starts that Kershaw has made against the Giants.

Ty Blach seems to love pitching aginst the Dodgers; he is 3-2 when starting against them with an ERA of 1.41.  The under is also 5-0 in Ty Blach’s career starts against the Dodgers.

My pick: Under (+7.0) 

Good luck and play ball!
