(3/29/19) Free MLB Picks

Detroit Tigers (Matthew Boyd 9-13 ERA in 2018)   at 

Toronto Blue Jays (Matt Shoemaker 2-2, 4.94 ERA in 2018)   7:08 pm EST

The Tigers picked up an upset win yesterday despite going scoreless for the first 9 innings of the game.

Matt Boyd is scheduled to take the mound for the Tigers. In 2018 Boyd was the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Will Boyd was great hot home, 6-3 with a 2.63 ERA, he was only 3-10 with a 5.89 ERA on the road.

The Tigers also were only 26-55 on the road last season.

Toronto will be sending Matt Shoemaker to the mound. Shoemaker is not great but he’s a Michigan native who seems to really get up for pitching against his home state’s team. Shoemaker is 3-1 with a 0.83 ERA against the Tigers, better than any other MLB team he’s faced

My Pick: Toronto Blue Jays Moneyline -129 

Risk:  To win 3 units

 

 

LA Angeles (Matt Harvey 0-2, 7.00 ERA in 2018)   at 

Oakland A’s (Marco Estrada 0-0, 5.40 ERA)   10:08 pm EST

Before the A’s 4-0 win over the Angels yesterday, the last 8 games played between these two teams in Oakland had gone over the total.

Matt Harvey will be making his debut for the Angels. Harvey only made 4 starts in overall appearances last season but posted an earned run average of 7.

Since 2016 Harvey has a 5.39 ERA in 63 overall appearances.

A’s starter Marco Estrada was 7-14 with a 5.64 ERA last season. Estrada also has a career 5.90 ERA against the Angels with the over going 3-1 in those starts.
