Oakland A’s at Seattle Mariners 10:10 pm EST

Projected Starters: A’s: Sean Manaea (4-2, 1.03 ERA) Mariners: Wade LeBlanc (0-0, 4.61 ERA)

Sean Manaea has made starts this season and has not allowed more than two earned runs in a single start. Manaea was actually was named the first American League Pitcher of the Month

Wade LeBlanc is scheduled to make his first start of the season and actually his first start since 2016. I expect the Oakland A’s to get to the Mariners bullpen early and get the win.



My pick: Oakland Athletics Moneyline -119

Tuesday May 10 MLB Picks

You have to own the bad days along with the good days. May 9 was not a good day in baseball for us, dropping all three picks.  The season is a sprint not a marathon and we are still running today.  Here are three MLB picks for Tuesday to get back on track. 

May 9 Record 0-3

Get Sports Strong  MLB Season Record 27-20

Oakland Athletics at Boston Red Sox (Over 9.5 Runs -120)

Athletics (Manaea 0-0, 7.20)  Red Sox (O’ Sullivan 0-0. 9.00)

Not a stellar pitching match-up. Sean O’Sullivan comes in with a 5.96 career ERA over 52 career starts.  A’s prospect Sean Manaea has allowed four runs in both of his first two career starts this season. After combining for 21 runs yesterday, I see these two teams going over 9.5 runs.


Detroit Tigers at Washington Nationals (Nationals -1.5 Runs, +130)

Tigers (Fulmer 1-1, 6.30)  Nationals (Ross 3-1, 1.23)

Throughout the Tigers current seven game losing steak, you keep getting the feeling that the Tigers are too good to let this continue, but the bleeding has not stopped. Six of the seven losses during Detroit’s current losing steak have been by four runs or more.  The Tigers will send out rookie starter Micheal Fulmer who has given up 17 hits and 7 earned runs in 10 innings pitched so far.  Joe Ross has not allowed more than two runs in any start this season, and in the start were he allowed two earned runs he was facing the Cubs. I am picking Washington to win by more then one run.  With +130 odds this is a good opportunity to pick up some positive juice.


Toronto Blue Jays at San Francisco Giants (Blue Jays Moneyline -123)

Blue Jays (Happ 4-0, 2.50)  Giants (Cain 0-4, 7.84)

JA Happ

The recent trend of these two starting pitchers heavily favors Toronto.  Blue Jays starter, J.A Happ has made eight consecutive quality starts going back to last season.  Giants starter, Matt Cain has only had one quality start this season in six attempts. Cain’s last start resulted in a 17-7 loss to the Colorado Rockies. I like the Blue Jays to pick up the road victory.

Wednesday May 4 MLB Pick (Seattle at Oakland)

With several early games today not forcing many plays, but here is my pick for May 4….


Seattle Mariners @ Oakland Athletics (Seattle Moneyline -124)

Mariners: (Hernandez 2-2, 1.38) Athletics: (Manaea 0-0, 7.20)

Felix Hernandez is 5-1 with a 2.04 ERA at the Oakland Coliseum over the past three seasons.  Oakland is starting prospect Sean Manaea who will only be making his second career big league start.  I like Seattle to win here.

Washington Nationals @ Kansas City Royals (Washington Moneyline Even) LOST, Royals scored three runs in bottom of 9th to win 7-6
