Buehler might own the edge in the pitching match-up, and Los Angeles probably holds an advantage with the sticks. But the Dodgers also might be without a couple of bats Monday night. Meanwhile, we like the vibe around San Diego right now. We'll take the Padres with Paddack as home dogs for our free MLB pick for Monday.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the Padres +125
Friday Jul 31, 2020

We'll call Friday's pitching match-up a wash, but we give Houston the check-marks in the batting splits and in the bullpen comparison. On top of that, Los Angeles is playing without Trout. So we like the Astros here. We also like chasing better prices, so we'll play Houston and give the run and a half on the run line.

Wednesday Jul 29, 2020

San Diego is 4-1 this season and would be 5-0 if it hadn't blown a game against Arizona over the weekend. San Francisco, meanwhile, is shorthanded and struggling, as this team goes through a rebuilding process. So we like the Padres here, and we also like taking chances. So we'll chase a better price and play SD against the run line.

Friday Jul 24, 2020

We're calling this pitching match-up a push, and while Chicago might own a slight edge with the sticks, Milwaukee owns a slight edge in the battle of the bullpens. So we see this game as a pick 'em. Which means we also see betting value, which is what betting baseball is all about, with the underdog Brewers.

Free Pick: 
Brewers +115
Thursday Jul 23, 2020
We gotta give Cole a slight edge in the pitching match-up, and once the bullpens get involved, it's still advantage Yankees, even without Chapman. Plus, the Nats are gonna miss Rendon. So we like New York here. And we also like taking chances. So we'll chase a price and take the Yankees getting +125, giving the 1.5 runs on the MLB run line.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the Yankees -1.5 runs +125
Wednesday Oct 30, 2019

We give Scherzer the check-mark in the pitching match-up, and while Houston might own statistical edges with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison, those have been wiped out somewhat by Washington's recent play. So the betting value here resides with the underdog. We're going all the way with the trend on the visitors in this World Series; we like the Nationals to win Game 7.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nationals +125
Tuesday Oct 29, 2019

We're gonna give Strasburg the edge in this pitching match-up, and while Houston gets the check-marks with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison, they're not enough to warrant a line so high. So we're sticking with the trend on the visiting team and taking Washington at the underdog price.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nationals +145
Friday Oct 25, 2019

Many signs point toward Houston here; Greinke owns an edge in the pitching match-up, the Astros own advantages with the sticks and in the bullpens, and they're now playing in desperation mode. However, Washington is riding a wave of momentum and an eight-game winning streak, and it's getting a home-dog price. We're riding the Nationals for our free MLB pick on Game 3.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nationals +125
Wednesday Oct 23, 2019

It's very difficult to beat Cole and Verlander back-to-back, but the way the Nats are playing, we're asking, "why not?" Washington's riding a huge wave of momentum, it's getting excellent starting pitching, timely hitting, the bullpen is better as of late, and it's getting another attractive underdog price. We like the value here with the Nationals.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nats +160
Tuesday Oct 22, 2019

Cole is ridiculously hot, so he gets the check-mark in the pitching match-up, but Scherzer's no slouch, so it's close. Also, while Houston owns edges with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison, it's not enough to warrant a line so high. And Washington's riding a wave of momentum. We are going with the betting value here and taking the Nationals at the fat underdog price for Game 1.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nationals +175
Saturday Oct 19, 2019

It's time for Houston to put New York away and advance on to the World Series. We give the Astros advantages with the sticks and in the comparison of the bullpens, and the line on this game, when it comes out, shouldn't be too prohibitive, considering neither Cole or Verlander will pitch. The home team is only 2-3 in this ALCS, but that seems like a lean due for a correction. We're going with Houston for our free MLB pick here.

Free Pick: 
Take Houston -142
Friday Oct 18, 2019

Houston is hot, with three wins in a row in this series, while New York looks lost, striking out 13 times Thursday night, committing four errors. Now the Astros get to throw Verlander on regular rest, and they're excellent against left-handed pitching. We're going with Houston here to finish off this series, with a World Series berth for the taking.

Free Pick: 
Take the Astros -130
Thursday Oct 17, 2019

We're giving Tanaka the edge in the pitching match-up, and with other factors basically equaling out, we like New York to take Game 4 for our free MLB playoff pick here.

Free Pick: 
Take the Yankees -130
Wednesday Oct 16, 2019

New York owns a slightly better record this season without its main starting pitchers. Also, the line on this game, when it comes out, will be very close to a "pick 'em", and the Yankees might even be posted as home dogs. And if there's ever a time to bet against Houston, it's right here, with both Cole and Verlander watching from the dugout. We'll take New York for our free MLB pick on Game 4.

Free Pick: 
Take the Yankees -135
Tuesday Oct 15, 2019

We gotta give Cole the check-mark in the pitching match-up, and Houston owns short edges with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison. So we're going with the Astros for our free MLB pick on this Game 3.

Free Pick: 
Take the Astros-165
Monday Oct 14, 2019

The Nationals' pitching has been lights out in this series, giving up only one run and four hits in the first two games. The Cardinals won three of four games against the Nationals in the series this season in Washington in the first half. The Nats have won four of Strasburg's last five starts against St. Louis, and that trend will continue in this game. He will have another solid playoff start, and the bats of the Cardinals will stay silent. Flaherty will have a good outing as well, but just like the first two games, the Nationals will win a low scoring game and take a commanding 3-0 lead in this series.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nationals -135
Sunday Oct 13, 2019

Verlander is coming off a rough outing on short rest, but we expect a bounce-back performance Sunday night. So we'll give Houston the edge in the pitching match-up here. We'll also give Houston a small advantage with the sticks. Plus, we have to believe the Astros will salvage a split of these first two games on their home field. So we're going with Houston here for our free MLB pick on Game 2.

Free Pick: 
Take the Astros -160
Saturday Oct 12, 2019

We give Greinke a short edge in the pitching match-up here, but it's close. We also give Houston the edge with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison. Also, the Astros just played a big game two days ago, while New York's had four days off, and we prefer teams that have played more recently in spots like this. So we're going with Houston here for our free MLB pick.

Free Pick: 
Take the Astros -130
Friday Oct 11, 2019

Both of these teams come into this game-winning two in a row, and both were underdogs in the last series. Both of the starters in this game have pitched well in the playoffs, and Mikolas has only given up one earned run in two appearances. Both will have good outings in this game and not give up many runs. The difference in this game will be in the bullpen, and in the playoffs, the Cardinals have a bullpen ERA of 4.30 while the Nationals have a bullpen ERA of 6.63. The Nats ranked dead last in the Majors this season in bullpen ERA, and that will hurt them in this game. The Cardinals will score runs late while the Nationals will not, and St. Louis will take the first game of this series at home.

Free Pick: 
Take the Cardinals -125
Thursday Oct 10, 2019

Cole will be hard-pressed to match his previous outing, but he still gets the check-mark in the pitching match-up. And Houston owns the edge with the sticks. So we like the Astros for Game 5, and we'll chase the better price by giving the run and a half on the run line.

Free Pick: 
Take the Astros -260
