April 4 MLB Free Picks

Thursday April 4 MLB Picks

 Washington Nationals (Strasburg 0-0, 6.00 ERA)     at

 New York Mets (Syndergaard 0-0, 6.00 ERA) 1:10 pm EST

The Mets are off to a nice 5-1 start, and will now look to carry that momentum over to their home opener.  Noah Syndergaard is the listed starter for New York. In 2018, Syndergaard was 8-1 with a 2.87 ERA at home and 5-1 with a 2.26 ERA in day games.

Noah Syndergaard did face the Nationals already this season on March 30, the Mets won the game 11-8, even though Noah did not have his best stuff allowing four earned runs and seven hits in six innings.

Stephen Strasburg was the opposing pitcher in the March 30 game against the Mets. Strasburg allowed seven hits and four earned runs over six innings as well.

The Mets finished 23rd in runs scored and 24th in OPS in all of MLB for the 2018 season.  There’s along way to go but the Mets are off to a better start offensively this season, ranking 5th in MLB  in runs scored and 12th in OPS.

The Mets look improved from last year while the Nationals seem to have taken a step back. The Nationals will also be with out their star Trea Turner who is on the 10 day disabled list.

I will take the hot Mets at home.

My Pick ✅ Mets  ML -120  (FOUR UNITS)

 Chicago Cubs (Yu Darvish 0-0, 10.13 ERA) at

  Atlanta Braves (Max Fried 0-0 0.00 ERA) 7:20 pm EST

Atlanta has won eight straight home games against right handed starters.

I definitely expect for both bullpen, that are struggling to have an impact on this game.

The Braves bullpen has a 5.79 ERA on the season, ranking 27th in MLB.

The Cubs bullpen has a 6.75 ERA ranking 29th in MLB.

The OVER is 4-0-1 in Cubs games this season.

The OVER is 3-1-1 in Braves games this season.

My Picks:

 ✅ Atlanta Braves ML -113  (TWO UNITS)

 ✅ OVER 8.5 (TWO UNITS)

 Texas Rangers (Volquez 0-0, 9.00 ERA) at

 Los Angeles Angels (Harvey 0-0, 3.00 ERA) 10:07 pm EST

Not a great starting pitching match-up on paper even though Harvey clearly had the better first start.

Coming off of a series win against Houston, The Rangers are 4-2 despite being the underdog in every game they have played so far.

The Angels had Wednesday off and will be looking to get on track in their home opener.  The Angels are 1-5 overall scoring just 13 runs so far on the season and hitting .178 as a team with just one home run.

Texas has scored 34 runs  and belted 10 home runs already this season.

The first week of the season was good to the underdogs, and with the value I have to take the Rangers here who look like the better team at this point.

My Pick ✅ Texas Rangers ML +140  (FOUR UNITS)

April 2 MLB Free Picks

Tuesday April 2 MLB Picks

Colorado Rockies at Tampa Bay Rays  7:10 pm EST

Rockies starter Kyle Freeland has started 14 straight games without allowing more than three earned runs

Blake Snell is pitching for Tampa Bay. Snell has only allowed more than two earned runs in three out of his last 23 starts,

which includes the five earned runs he allowed against Houston on opening day.

The UNDER is 5-0 so far in Rays games this season.

 

My Pick ✅ UNDER 7 (Three Units) 

San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers 10:10 pm EST

The Giants have only scored nine runs in the first five games this season.

On the other side the Dodgers scored 42 runs in their first four games against the Diamondbacks before losing to the Giants 4-2 last night.

Madison Bumgarner looked good in his first start against the Padres, allowing two runs, and striking out nine batters over seven innings.

The under is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings between this two teams

 

My Pick ✅ UNDER 7 (Three Units) 

(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.

 

My Pick: OVER 8.5

Risk:  To win 4 units

 

Boston Red Sox at Seattle Mariners (3/28/19) Free Pick

 

Convert?w=40&h=40&fit=clipBoston Red Sox (Chris Sale 12-4, 2.11 ERA in 2018)   at

Convert?w=60&h=60&fit=clip Marco Gonzales (Gonzales 13-9, 4.00 ERA in 2018)   7:08 pm EST

Similar to last season, if you want to bet on the Boston Red Sox in 2019, you are going to have to consider taking Boston on the run line or else risk good amount of juice.

The Red Sox led all of Major League Baseball in 2018 with 108 wins and 876 runs scored (5.4 per game). More importantly, Boston ended the season as World Champions.

The Seattle Mariners had a solid 2018 campaign, finishing 89-73 in 2018, however at the

All Star Break the Mariners hoped for much more.  Seattle led Oakland by three games for the final American League Wild Card spot, before going only 31-34 in the second half of the season. Oakland finished 42-23 after the All Star break and earned the final American League Wildcard spot.

The 2019 edition of the Mariners are a team looking for an identity.  In the off season Seattle traded away Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz, Jean Segura and James Paxton.  The Mariners also saw slugger Nelson Cruz, who hit 163 home runs for them over past four seasons sign with Minnesota.  The Mariners will hope that new additions Jay Bruce and Edwin Encarnacion can help replace the lost power production.

The Mariners are off to a 2-0 start after picking up two wins over Oakland in Tokyo including a 9-7 win in the season opener where Marco Gonzales started and allowed three earned runs over six innings.

Marco Gonzales is 0-1 in his career against Boston with a 7.50 ERA

Chris Sale is 6-1 against the Mariners in his career with a 1.95 ERA, his team is 7-2 overall in those games.

I don’t see this group of Mariners getting off to a 3-0 start and beating the Red Sox behind Chris Sale.  I am taking the Red Sox despite the price being higher than I would like.

My Pick: Boston Red Sox MONEYLINE -180 

Risk:  To win 3 units
