While we're calling today's pitching match-up a push we're also giving Chicago our handicapping check-marks in the splits with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison. Also, following that 11-game losing skid we expect the Cubs to begin to bounce back. They're better than that. St. Louis, meanwhile, continues to puzzle us. Maybe the Cardinals are just bad; some of their numbers seem to say that. So we like the Cubbies for our free baseball betting pick for Saturday.
We're calling the pitching comparison in this game a wash, but we give Houston a significant edge in the splits with the sticks. Also, New York just puzzles us (and others) while the Astros are hot again. And when Houston gets hot, it rolls for weeks at a time. We're betting the Astros here for our free baseball pick for Friday.
Milwaukee comes in hot but what it's really done recently is take advantage of a weak stretch in its schedule. Over the last month, the Brewers played Detroit, Arizona, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Colorado, and the Cubs; as of Monday, only one of those teams was above .500. Also, how often do we see a team go on a significant winning streak, then lose three or four games in a row? Woodruff gets our handicapping check-mark in the pitching match-up, but everything else is about equal, which to us creates some baseball betting value with New York. We're taking the Mets here for our free baseball betting pick for Monday.
We give Montas the edge in the pitching match-up, and while Boston owns the edge with the sticks, Oakland owns the edge in the bullpen comparison. Also, while the Sox are hot and the A's not so much, we expect those recent trends to ease back toward the norm. So we like Oakland for our free MLB pick for Friday.
Bauer might own an edge in the pitching match-up, but DeSclafani's been great as of late. He has not been great in two starts against Los Angeles this season, but maybe he's learned something and can adjust. Meanwhile, San Francisco's been scoring a bunch of runs recently, the Dodgers, not so much. And the Giants own an edge in the bullpen comparison. So we love the baseball betting value with San Francisco at the underdog price for Monday night.
San Francisco is already 22 games above .500, but what will they finish at? The Giants are on a pace to win 105 games, but that's not gonna happen. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised if they struggled to play .500 ball from here on out. And that thought suggests to us there may be good betting value fading San Francisco for the rest of the season. That might not be the greatest way to pick winners day by day, but that's how we're looking at this game. We're betting Oakland here for our free baseball pick for Friday.
We'll give Boston a short edge in the pitching match-up here, and while Tampa owns the better bullpen, Boston owns the edge in the splits with the sticks. Plus, the Red Sox are getting the underdog price. So we're betting Boston for our free MLB betting pick for Thursday.
We give Darvish a slight edge in the pitching match-up. From there, we'd give Los Angeles the edge in the splits with the sticks, but they're down three regulars. And we give San Diego the edge in the bullpen comparison. So we like the Padres for our free baseball betting pick for Monday.
We give Cueto a short edge in the pitching match-up and San Francisco gets our handicapping check-marks in both the splits with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison. So we like the Giants here for our free MLB pick for Friday.
We're not sure who's going to win this game, and we don't care because our pick is on the total. Neither of these starting pitchers deserves a betting recommendation, and both lineups are scoring runs recently. Plus, that Cincinnati bullpen is awfully generous. We like the over 8.5 runs on this game for our free MLB pick for Tuesday.
Manaea out-pitched Bundy in their meeting three weeks ago; Oakland just blew that game. Toss in recent form, and we give the A's the edge in the pitching match-up. And while Los Angeles brings some hot bats into Monday night, that Angels bullpen can be had. So we like Oakland here for our free MLB pick for Monday.
These teams are headed in different directions as of late. Also, Davies gets the check-mark in the pitching match-up, and Chicago owns a significant advantage in the bullpen comparison. So we're playing the Cubs for our free MLB pick for Saturday.
We gotta give Hendricks the edge in the pitching match-up here, and Chicago owns a significant advantage in the bullpen comparison. So we like the Cubs here. However, we do not like that price. So we'll take a chance and play Chicago against the run line, getting +116, for our free MLB
We're not sure who's going to win this game, and we don't care because our play is on the total. When these two starting pitchers faced off last month, the game played over a total of 9.5 as Richards and Stripling combined to allow eight runs. Also, we rank both these lineups among the best in the Business against right-handed pitching. Also, Toronto has scored at least five runs five times over its last nine games, while Boston has scored at least five runs six times over its last eight games. So we're playing the over 9.5 runs here for our free MLB pick for Friday.
Greinke gets the check-mark in the pitching match-up, and while Boston owns an edge in the bullpen comparison, Houston owns an edge in the splits with the sticks. Plus, the Astros are just playing the better ball as of late, as perhaps the Sox begin returning to Earth following their great start to this season. We like Houston for our free baseball betting pick for Thursday.
We give Los Angeles our handicapping check-marks in the pitching match-up, in the bullpen comparison, and in the splits with the sticks. So we like the Dodgers here. We also like taking chances. So in knowing they'll bat nine times, we'll play LA against the run line, getting a price of around +130.
We give Eovaldi the check-mark in the pitching match-up, and while New York owns the edge in the bullpen comparison, Boston owns the edge in the splits with the sticks. Plus, the Red Sox is getting the underdog price. We're betting Boston here for our free MLB pick for Friday.
