We're calling this pitching match-up a push while we'll give New York slight edges with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison. However, after going 2/22 with RISP through the first two games of this series, we expect a little better luck from Boston Sunday night. Also, the Red Sox won't want to get swept by their hated rivals in the first series of the season. Betting baseball often comes down to finding value on the betting lines, and we like the value here with Boston getting the underdog price.
We call the pitching match-up here close, and Los Angeles owns a slight edge with the sticks. But the Dodgers own a big edge in the bullpen comparison, and there's a good chance that's what this game will come down to - the last few innings. So not only do we like LA, we'll gamble a bit and chase the better price playing against the run line.
Atlanta gets our baseball handicapping check-marks in the pitching match-up, the splits with the sticks, and in the bullpen comparison, so our pick here is easy. But we don't like that price. So we'll gamble a little and take the home team against the run line, giving the run and a half at the better price.
We liked Houston to win this World Series from the get-go because of the advantage with the bats, and they finally woke up Sunday night. And they got Fried for six runs in Game 2. Plus, the Astros are playing at home in front of a raucous crowd, and the price isn't bad. So we're betting Houston here to push this series to a Game 7.
Houston bats are 0/10, with runners in scoring position over the last two games. We expect better Sunday night. We also expect better from Valdez. And Houston's too good to allow itself to get knocked out in five games. We're betting the Astros here, and we might even tickle that +430 to come back and win this Series.
We give Anderson a slight edge in the pitching match-up, but Houston owns the best line-up in the Majors against right-handed pitching. The Astros bullpen has also been pretty good this post-season, and Houston's getting an underdog price. So we like the Astros to take this Game 3.
Fried’s been very good against the Dodgers this season and we expect more of the same here. Plus, Big Mo rides with Atlanta, which means a ton to us when handicapping baseball games. Plus, the Braves are getting an attractive underdog price. We like the baseball betting value with Atlanta Thursday night.
Scherzer gets the check-mark in the pitching match-up and Los Angeles gets the check-mark in the bullpen comparison so we like the Dodgers here. Plus, of LA’s 12 wins with Scherzer 10 have come by at least two runs. And in knowing the visiting team will bat nine times we’ll chase a better price and play the Dodgers against the run line.
We're calling both this pitching match-up and the bullpen comparison washes, but we give Hou-ston a slight edge with the sticks. Also, the Astros took five of seven games from Boston during the regular season. We like Houston to take Game 1 of this ALCS at what seems like a reasonable price.
We give Webb a very slight edge in the pitching match-up a wash and San Francisco a very slight edge in the bullpen comparison, but we give Los Angeles an advantage with the sticks because it appears the Giants miss Belt more than the Dodgers miss Muncy. Ultimately, though, we've just thought Los Angeles was the better team all season and that San Francisco was playing a bit above its head, and that sooner or later, the Dodgers would pass the Giants. Well, later is here. We like LA for our free baseball pick for Thursday.
We're calling this pitching match-up a wash, and the splits with the sticks and the bullpen com-parisons are close, too. Even the injuries look like they even out. So the true line on this game should be about a pick 'em. But the Giants just seem to have a little magic in their pockets this year, and they're getting a home dog price. That's why we see some nice baseball betting value here with San Francisco.
We give McClanahan the edge in the pitching match-up, and Tampa owns the better bullpen. Al-so, while Boston might own an advantage with the sticks, it might also be without one of its best. So we like the Rays for our free baseball betting pick for Thursday.
Cole may be an obvious choice in the pitching match-up, but he isn't going all that great as of late, and New York only split his four starts against Boston this season. Also, while the Yankees get the check-mark in the bullpen comparison, the Red Sox get the check-mark with the sticks. So on our board, this game should be lined as a pick 'em. That's why we like the baseball betting value with Boston here.
We're calling this pitching match-up a push, and while Philly owns an edge with the sticks, New York owns the edge in the bullpen comparison. So in our mind, this game should be lined at right around a pick'em. But momentum means a ton to us when handicapping baseball games, and while the Phillies are playing themselves into playoff contention, the Mets are doing just the opposite. So we like Philadelphia here for our free baseball betting pick for Sunday.
Musgrove's been very good as of late, but we're calling the pitching match-up a push because the San Francisco pen, which should get plenty of action here, is just super. From there, we give the Giants the edge in the splits with the sticks, and San Francisco is just hot, while San Diego is not. And momentum means a ton to us when handicapping baseball games. So we like the Giants at pick'em for our free baseball betting pick for Wednesday.
The Yankees slapped Carrasco around the last time they met, and New York owns the edge in the bullpen comparison. So it doesn't matter to us who starts for the Yanks, although we're hoping it's Schmidt. We're betting the Yankees for our free baseball pick for Sunday.
