We give Montas an edge in the pitching match-up, and New York owns an edge in the bullpen while Toronto gets the check-mark in the splits with the sticks. So the line on this game looks about right. But we've been waiting for the Yankees to come back to Earth, following such a super start to this season, and right now, they're having trouble scoring runs. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays are playing for their playoff lives from here on out. We like the value here, with Toronto getting the underdog price.

Free Pick: 
Take Toronto +129
Wednesday Aug 17, 2022

This pitching match-up is darn near a push because the White Sox have been hitting Valdez over recent meetings. And while Houston owns the edge in the bullpen comparison, we gotta give Chicago the edge in the splits with the sticks. So from what we can tell, the line on this game should be closer to a pick 'em'em. Also, the White Sox are hot at a good time, while the Astros are kind of treading water over the last couple of weeks. So we like the value with Chicago at the underdog price.  

Free Pick: 
Take the White Sox +132
Tuesday Aug 16, 2022

We call this pitching match-up a wash because both guys have been hit rather hard by these opponents recently. And while we give New York an edge with the sticks, Atlanta owns an edge in the bullpen. So from what we can see, the line on this game should be a lot closer to a pick 'em. We also like the Mets' record against RH starters and their chances of bouncing back after getting thumped last night. We're taking the underdog price with New York Tuesday night.

Free Pick: 
Take the Mets +125
Monday Aug 15, 2022

We give Los Angeles our handicapping check-marks in the pitching match-up, the splits with the sticks, and the bullpen comparison. Also, the Dodgers are smokin' hot while Milwaukee is struggling. So we love LA here. We also like gambling. So we're chasing the better price playing the Dodgers against the run line.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers on the Runline
Sunday Aug 14, 2022
We give Wacha a slight edge in the pitching match-up because he's been so good against the Yankees recently. However, he may very well be on a short leash, coming off the IL, and would then turn the game over to the Boston bullpen, which is an iffy proposition. Meanwhile, New York owns a great bullpen while the splits with the sticks are about even. So when we add things up, we like the Yankees to take the rubber match of this series at this very reasonable price.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the NY Yankees
Friday Aug 12, 2022
We give St. Louis the edge in the pitching match-up partly because Lauer is almost two runs per game worse on the road this season than he is at home. From there, the bullpens are about even, but the Cardinals own a huge advantage in the splits with the sticks. Plus, St. Louis is headed in a good direction as of late. Milwaukee, not so much. So while we don't like going along with the betting flow, we like the Cardinals for Friday night.
 
Free Pick: 
Take St. Louis
Thursday Aug 11, 2022
We give Smyly a slight edge in the pitching match-up, and Chicago owns the better bullpen. Meanwhile, neither team is scoring much as of late. From there, the Cubs are actually playing some decent ball as of late, while Cincinnati just got swept three games. And we can't get that Reds bullpen ERA out of our minds. So we're going with the Cubbies for our free baseball pick for Thursday night.
 
Free Pick: 
Take The Chicago Cubs
Wednesday Aug 10, 2022

Gray owns the edge in the pitching match-up, but Los Angeles gets the check-marks in the splits with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison. So we like LA here. We also notice that each of the Dodgers' nine wins during their current streak have come by at least two runs. So we'll take a chance and play Los Angeles against the run line here at a price of +115.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers -1.5 Runline
Tuesday Aug 09, 2022

Toronto gets our handicapping check-marks in the pitching match-up and in the splits with the sticks, while Baltimore owns an edge in the bullpen comparison. So we're leaning Blue Jays. Then, Toronto is 14 games over .500 against RH starters while the Orioles are three games under. Also, after dropping the opener of this series Monday night, we expect the Jays to bounce back. So while we're not big fans of the line on this game, we are betting the Blue Jays for our free baseball pick for Tuesday.

Free Pick: 
Take Toronto -155
Monday Aug 08, 2022

We give Gilbert a slight edge in the pitching match-up. From there, we call this bullpen comparison darn-near a push, and while New York's bats own better numbers, they're down a couple of guys. So from what we can tell, this game should be lined as a pick 'em at the least. Instead, the hotter team, or at least the team that's been playing better ball as of late, is lined as a home underdog or close to that. Betting baseball is often about betting the value we can find on those dime lines, and we like the value with the Mariners minus the tiny number.

Free Pick: 
Take the Mariners -102
Sunday Aug 07, 2022

Leading up to Sunday's National League West matchup between San Diego and Los Angeles, the Dodgers are the favorite on the moneyline. Even though LA starter Tyler Anderson is coming off a rough outing, I expect him to get back on track vs San Diego, as his WHIP is still just 1.03. Look for the Dodgers to continue their winning ways vs San Diego.

Free Pick: 
Take the LA Dodgers -127
Saturday Aug 06, 2022
We give Montgomery the edge in the pitching match-up here because he's been better than his 3-3 record might indicate. From there, we give New York the edge in the bullpen comparison, but we can't give it the edge with the sticks because they're missing a couple of key guys. Ultimately what we like about this game is St. Louis is hot while the Yankees have hit some doldrums, and those are trends that mean a lot to us. So we're betting the Cardinals Saturday night.
 
Free Pick: 
Take St. Louis -110
Friday Aug 05, 2022

We give Berrios the edge in the pitching match-up and Toronto the edges in both the splits with the sticks and the bullpen comparison. Also, the Blue Jays are hot right now, Minnesota, not so much, and diverging trends like that mean a lot to us when handicapping baseball games. So we're betting Toronto Friday night.

Free Pick: 
Take Toronto -118
Thursday Aug 04, 2022

We give Carrasco a slight edge in the pitching match-up thanks to the slightly better past performance against these opponents. From there, New York owns an edge with the sticks, while Atlanta owns an edge in the bullpen comparison. So the line on this game looks about right. But we like the Mets' pick-up of LH stick Vogelbach, who hit a grand slam Wednesday, and New York owns a wonderful record against RH starters. So we like the Mets for Thursday night.

Free Pick: 
Take the NY Mets -116
Wednesday Aug 03, 2022

We give Urias the edge in the pitching match-up thanks to some great numbers against San Francisco this season. From there, we give Los Angeles our handicapping check-marks in both the splits with the sticks and the bullpen comparison. Also, the Dodgers are trying to secure the No. 1 seed for the upcoming NL playoffs, while the Giants are on the verge of playing themselves out of postseason contention. So we like LA here, and in knowing the visitors will bat nine times, we'll play the Dodgers against the run line at a price of +105.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers on the Runline
Tuesday Aug 02, 2022

It's nearing gut-check time for Tampa Bay right now, as far as making the upcoming playoffs. The Rays gotta turn this mini-slump around, lest they lose ground. As for Tuesday night, we call the pitching match-up a push while giving the edges to Toronto with the sticks but to Tampa in the bullpen comparison. So to us, the line on this game seems a bit steep. We like the value with the Rays at home getting the underdog price here.

Free Pick: 
Take Tampa Bay +124
Monday Aug 01, 2022

Garcia gets our handicapping check-mark in the pitching match-up, and Houston owns a significant edge in the bullpen comparison. Also, the Astros are trying to overtake the Yankees in the League race while Boston is heading in the wrong direction. So we like Houston here. We also like taking chances. So we'll chase the better price and give the run and a half with the Astros against the run line. 

Free Pick: 
Take Houston -1.5 runs
Sunday Jul 31, 2022
Rodon gets the check-mark in the pitching match-up, but it's closer than first glance might indicate. From there, we give Chicago slight edges in the splits with the sticks and the bullpen comparison. So it's apparent to us the line on this game is way too high. Also, the Cubs are actually playing the better ball as of late. Betting baseball is often about finding the value on the daily dime lines, and we like the value here with Chicago at that fat underdog price.
 
Saturday Jul 30, 2022

We give Musgrove the check-mark in the pitching match-up, but it's closer than first glance might indicate. From there, we give Minnesota the edge with the sticks while calling the bullpens about equal. But we wonder if Musgrove might feel some pressure Saturday night with the new contract, and we feel the Twins are good enough to bounce back after taking a beating Friday night. So we like the underdog price with Minnesota in this spot.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Free Pick: 
Take Minnesota +118
Friday Jul 29, 2022

Woodruff gets a solid check-mark in the pitching match-up against the rookie. Milwaukee also owns the hotter bats and the better bullpen. So we like the Brewers here. We also like taking chances. So in knowing the visitors will bat nine times,  we'll play Milwaukee against the run line at a price of around +100. 

Free Pick: 
Take Milwaukee -1.5 runs
