What a great pitching matchup in this Game 5, and both starters had great last outings in this series. This game will definitely be a pitcher's duel, but the downfall of the Nationals may be their bullpen. They have an ERA of 8.40 in the playoffs, and in the regular season, they ranked dead last in MLB in bullpen ERA. Strasburg and Walker will both have solid starts, and the Dodgers will get a few runs late, and that will be all they need to get the win and close out the series advancing to the NLCS.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers -145

Verlander's been very tough on Tampa this year, to the tune of one run over 19 1/3 innings. Also, while Rays pitchers held Houston's sticks in check Monday we expect a bit of a breakout here for Game 4. So we like the Astros for our free MLB pick on Game 4, and we'll chase a better price by playing them against the run line.

Free Pick: 
Take the Astros -240

The Braves are back at home where they won their last game with Foltynewicz pitching a gem in the shutout win. He will be opposing Flaherty in this big game, and the results will be the same. Foltynewicz will have a better outing, and Flaherty will be decent but give up some runs. The pitching will be the same as in Game 2, and the results will be the same as well, as the Braves will win a low scoring game and close out the series advancing to the NLCS.

Free Pick: 
Take the Braves -110
Monday Oct 07, 2019

Both games in this series played over the totals, and the way these teams hit the ball, perhaps with a little help from the bullpens, we expect more of the same Monday. We're going with the over for our free MLB pick here.

Free Pick: 
Take the Over 9
Monday Oct 07, 2019

The Nationals have their backs against the wall down 2-1, but they have won their last five games following a loss. Scherzer was lights out in his one inning of relief in Game 2 but has given up 12 earned runs in his previous three starts lasting 17 2/3 innings. Hill will be making his first post-season start, and he has not gone past three innings in his last three starts since missing three months with an injury. He may have another short outing, and the Dodgers' bullpen has been solid in the series giving up three earned runs in the three games. The LA bats will get to Scherzer for q few runs while Hill and the Dodgers' bullpen will have a great outing. LA will get the win in a low scoring game and close out the series advancing to the NLCS.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers +115
Monday Oct 07, 2019

Houston is just the better team here, with Greinke, a nice advantage with the sticks and a fantastic bullpen. The Astros covered against the run line in the first two games of this series, and we expect more of the same Monday. So we'll chase the better price and give the 1.5 runs with Houston here.

Free Pick: 
Take Houston -1.5
Sunday Oct 06, 2019

Scherzer is scheduled to get the start in this game, and while he had a perfect inning of relief in Game 2, his last three starts have not been overly impressive. On the other side of the coin, Ryu has not allowed any earned runs in two of his previous three starts, including his last one. The pitching has been solid in the series, as in the two games, only 12 runs have been scored. The Nationals have lost their last four home games when Scherzer has gotten the start and look for that trend to continue. He will not get lit up but give up a few runs while Ryu will have another great start. In another low scoring game in this series, the Dodgers will win in the Nation's Capital and take a 2-1 series lead.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers +145
Sunday Oct 06, 2019

The Braves are the road favorite in this game and not surprising since Wainwright has been shelled giving up 11 earned runs in his last two starts. On top of that, he was not sharp against the Braves in his one appearance facing them this season, giving up five earned runs and failing to get out of the 5th inning in a Cardinals’ loss. Wainwright will struggle again in this playoff game, as Atlanta will get to him early and often. Add that to a strong start from Soroka, and you get a Braves win, as they will take a 2-1 series lead.

Free Pick: 
Take the Atlanta Braves -125
Saturday Oct 05, 2019

New York owns Minnesota in the playoffs, going back to the beginning of this century, and will probably win this game, too. But we don't like that price, so we're steering clear of a side here. Instead, we notice that six of seven meetings between these two teams have played over their totals this season, and both these lineups hit righties well. So we'll ride that trend and play the over on Saturday's Game 2.

Free Pick: 
Take the Over 9.5
Friday Oct 04, 2019
The Braves took a tough loss in Game 1 and look to bounce back in this game to even the series. Great pitching matchup, and Flaherty has not given up any earned runs in his last two starts, which spanned 14 innings. Foltynewicz was lights out for four starts before giving up three earned runs in four 2/3 innings in his previous spring. This game will be a pitcher's duel, and Foltynewicz will get back on track and out-duel Flaherty. Unlike Game 1, the Braves bullpen will do their job, and in a low scoring affair, Atlanta will win Game 2 and tie this series, as they head to St. Louis.

We can't help but give Verlander the check-mark in the pitching match-up, and Houston owns the best lineup in baseball against right-handed pitching. The price on this game is, of course, inflated toward the Astros, so we'll take a chance and play the home team against the run line for our free MLB playoff pick here.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the Astros -1.5 Runs

The Braves are hoping that the injuries to stars Ronald Acuna Jr., who missed the last four games of the regular season, and Freddie Freeman are healed, as they are key pieces to the lineup and on the season combined for 79 HR. Keuchel did not finish the season well in his last three starts but does have post-season success, which is why the Braves signed him in June. This start will be Mikolas' first career postseason appearance, and I predict that the Atlanta lineup will get to him. Keuchel will have a good outing and with reliable run support the Braves will take it.

Free Pick: 
Take Atlanta -135

Great starting pitching matchup in this game, which is no surprise for this winner-take-all Wild Card showdown. Morton pitched great in his two starts against the A’s this season, but he was not great in his last few road starts of the season. Manaea was awesome on the mound after missing most of the season on the DL, and he has the advantage of facing the Rays for the first time. That will be a great advantage, and he will tame the Rays’ bats, which were not great to end the season and only ranked 18th in MLB in runs scored. The A's lineup will not tag up Morton, but they will get for some runs, and that is all Manaea will need. In a low scoring pitcher’s duel, the A’s will come out on top and win at home advancing to the ALDS.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the A's -131

The Nationals head into this Wild Card game hot winners of eight in a row, but Scherzer has not been hot in his last three starts where he has given up 12 earned runs in 17 2/3 innings. He pitched well against the Brewers in his lone start to the season but did not get much help from the lineup in a Washington loss. If he gets off to a rocky start, the Nationals may be in trouble, as this season they ranked dead last in MLB in bullpen ERA. Woodruff will be making just his 3rd start since coming off the DL, and his last two have only lasted two innings each. Milwaukee ranks 17th in the Majors in bullpen ERA and while they were solid in Woodruff's previous two starts giving up seven runs in 14 innings. However, the bullpen gave up ten earned runs in getting swept in their last series. I look for Scherzer to have a decent start, but the main reason the Nationals will win is their lineup that will get to Woodruff and the Milwaukee bullpen. Washington will win this Wild Card game and head to the NLDS to face the Dodgers with that series beginning on Thursday.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nationals -175
Saturday Sep 28, 2019

The Braves have lost three of their last four games, but they have Foltynewicz on the hill in this game, and the team has won his previous 13 starts. He has been great in his last few starts and only gave up one earned run in his only starts against the Mets this season in an Atlanta win. Matz has pitched well against the Braves in his last two starts facing them, but New York lost both games. He was lit up in his previous two outings giving up 13 earned runs in nine innings. The Atlanta lineup will get to him in this game and Foltynewicz will have another good outing and put those things together, and you get a Braves to win.

Free Pick: 
Take the Braves -111
Friday Sep 27, 2019

The Indians head into their final series behind the eight-ball not only in terms of the standings but their lineup has struggled in the last two games, and their starter for this game has pitched well in three of his previous four starts. On the other side of the coin the Nats are surging, but they have had little success with Voth on the hill this season. Plesac will struggle once again in this must-win game while Voth will have another solid start as he did in his last one. However, this time around Voth will get some support from the lineup. The Nationals will take this game inching closer to hosting the NL Wild Card while the Indians playoff hopes may be eliminated if the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays.

Free Pick: 
Take the Nationals -125
Thursday Sep 26, 2019

The Indians cannot afford to lose this game, and it is a plus for them having a red-hot rookie on the mound. He and Cease have been pitching well as of late, and while Civale has been great since being called up from the minors, Cease struggled for a while before his last few starts. Cleveland has all the pressure on them needing to win and get help to make the playoffs. They will come through in this season finale getting to Cease for a few runs while Civale will have another good start. The Indians will take this game and keep their playoff hopes alive hoping to catch the Rays, who they trail by 1.5 games for the 2nd AL Wild Card.

Free Pick: 
Take the Indians -200
Wednesday Sep 25, 2019

The Rangers are reeling, and they face a hot hurler in Porcello who is coming off a great outing. The Red Sox have won five straight against the Rangers when Porcello has gotten the start. Allard is not coming off a bad outing, but he will get tagged up in this one at home where he has struggled on the season. The Red Sox lineup has been good on the season and especially as of late and with them solid at the dish in this game and a good start from Porcello it equals a Red Sox win.

Free Pick: 
Take the Red Sox -155
Tuesday Sep 24, 2019

The Brewers are hot right now, but they face Gray, who is the Ace of the Reds’ staff and leads the team in ERA and strikeouts. He has pitched great against the Brewers this season with two starts where he did not give up any earned runs and Cincy has won all four of his starts facing them this season. Look for him to have another sharp outing while the Reds’ lineup will get to Houser, who has given up six earned runs in his last two starts where he only lasted eight innings. The Brewers have lost five of Houser’s last six road starts while the Reds have won 10 of Gray’s last 11 home starts. Look for those trends to continue, as the Reds will take this game and snap the Brewers four-game winning streak.

Free Pick: 
Take the Reds -115
Monday Sep 23, 2019

The Jays swept the Orioles on the road last week, and in one of the games Buchholz was less than sharp giving up seven runs and failing to make it out of the 4th inning. I see him getting tagged up again in this game, but unlike the last one, he will not get a lot of run support. Sheppard will have a good outing in the 2nd one his career but not a great one. However, the Orioles will get it done at the dish facing a struggling Buchholz, and that is why they will take the first game of this division series.

Free Pick: 
Take Baltimore +115
