MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants at Boston Red Sox

San Francisco (Cain) at Boston (Pomeranz) -210 O/U 10
Recommendation: Over


Drew Pomeranz, in theory, is supposed to help the Red Sox win a World Series when October rolls around.  But I’m not convinced in the slightest that Pomeranz success in San Diego will translate over to Fenway Park.

Pomeranz was a highly coveted prospect coming out of Ole Miss, and the Indians drafted him with their #5 overall pick back in 2010.  Cleveland was willing to dump him by 2011, trading him to Colorado.  The Rockies gave him every chance to succeed, then traded him to Oakland.  The A’s gave him two years, then dealt him to San Diego.  Now the Padres have been willing to let him go as well, despite his All Star first half.

When we put Pomeranz’s 8-7 record and 2.47 ERA pitching for a last place team under the microscope, we can see all kinds of vulnerability.  The #1 factor due for regression is his home run to fly ball percentage.  The MLB average is 12.8%.  Pomeranz has made 12 of his 17 starts in the VERY pitcher friendly ballparks in California; hence his 8.8% of home runs to fly Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Miami Marlins at Philadephia Phillies

Miami (Chen) -131 at Philadelphia O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Miami


The Philadelphia Phillies host the Miami Marlins for the third game of a four game series. This is a classic case of ride the hot and fade the cold. The Phillies managed just five hits Tuesday, and over their past three games -- all losses -- they have generated just three runs and 10 hits while striking out 34 times. They fanned 11 times against five Marlins pitchers yesterday. On the exact opposite side, the Marlins have won seven of their past eight games, taking each of the first two games in this four-game series.

Philly's Jeremy Hellickson continues to be the subject of trade speculation, with the August 1 non-waiver deadline approaching. The 29-year-old righty’s stuff has been in decline for years and I doubt the uncertainty of his future will help. A suspect pitcher backed by an even more suspenct offer. "We're in that hitting funk again," manager Pete Mackanin said. "We're just not swinging the bats. Too many bad at-bats. We're not grinding out at-bats, and we need to do that. ... Too many called third strikes with men in scoring position. That's a Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Houston Astros at Oakland A's

Houston (Fister) -125 at Oakland (Mengden) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Houston


The Houston Astros will try to avoid the three-game sweep this afternoon in Oakland with sinkerballer Doug Fister on the hill. There is a lot not to like about Fister's body of work this season with only 69 strikeouts in 111.1 innings to go with a fortunate .257 BABIP and 78.5% left-on-base rate. His ERA (3.64) to FIP (4.72) differential is one of the highest in the league among qualified starters. But what Fister does is keep the ball on the ground and churn out quality starts. In 18 starts, Fister has allowed three runs or fewer 15 times. The markets may not like him but as opposed to laying -180 like bettors were forced to last night with Dallas Keuchel, we're instead getting a far cheaper price of -125. Oakland's Daniel Mengden has the potential to be a back-of-the-rotation arm but he isn't there yet. He's managed to fan a batter per inning but has already shown signs of wearing down having allowed 16 earned runs over his last three starts. Also note that four of Mengden's seven starts came against National League teams. When asked to step up in class against Toronto and Read more

Houston (Fiers) -130 at Oakland (Graveman) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under


Houston has been rolling for nearly two months now going 33-14 since May 24. Throughout the run, their pitching has been a major contributor the success. During this 47 game stretch, the Astros have allowed three runs or less 26 times (55.3%). Tonight’s starter Mike Fiers has not been consistently good this season but in eight of his last 12 starts he has limited the opposition to two runs or less. Included in there is his 7 IP, 0 BB, 2 ER performance right here versus the A’s on April 29. Just as impressive has been Oakland RH Kendall Graveman’s recent 10-game string where he has yielded two runs or less eight times. In that mix is his dominant effort just nine days ago in which he went eight innings and allowed only five baserunners and two runs against this Houston lineup. Shifting to bullpen notes, the Astros relief corps can’t be ignored here as they’ve been just as instrumental in the 33-14 run as any segment of the team. Since May 24, the group is 14-2 with a 2.61 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. The Astros have all four of their key arms available tonight Read more

Detroit (Verlander) +105 at Toronto (Hutchison) O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Detroit


Toronto's Drew Hutchison is the quintessential fringe MLB starter. In 361 career Minor League innings, the 25-year-old right hander owns a 2.81 ERA -- which is right in line with this year's performance at Triple-A Buffalo (2.78 ERA). In 400 career Major League innings, Hutchison's ERA is 4.92 -- his "best" season coming in 2014 when he posted a semi-respectable 3.85 FIP and a strikeout per inning over 184.2 frames. The Jays have given him plenty of chances to succeed but pitching in the American League has consistently been an uphill battle. He makes a spot start tonight against the Tigers with Marco Estrada placed on the DL. And while coming from the right side is the prefered profile against Detroit's lineup, Hutchison's go-to pitch, the slider, has lost it's luster -- .185 BAA in 2014 but close to .300 since. Justin Verlander's resurgence appears real with a strikeout rate over 9 per 9 innings and quality starts in 12 of 17 outings. He remains hittable at times and is prone to giving up the long ball (16 allowed in 111 IP) but it far more trustable when Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals

Pittsburgh (Locke) +150 at St. Louis (Garcia) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Pittsburgh


We’ve got lefty vs. lefty in St Louis tonight.  The Pirates are an above average hitting team against opposing southpaws, and they’ve got a .600 winning percentage against opposing lefty starters.  Meanwhile, the Cardinals rank #25 in MLB in OPS vs lefties, and they have a sub .500 record against them.  Advantage: Pittsburgh.

Pirates starter Jeff Locke is NOT respected in the betting markets and his aggregate stats aren’t all that pretty.  Locke has a 5.13 ERA and a 5.01 xFIP which appears to show that his dismal ERA is no fluke.  But both of those are very misleading numbers, especially compared to his current form.

In early June, Locke was asked to take one for the team in Colorado on a day where the Pirates had no fresh arms in their bullpen.  The box score was ugly: 11 earned runs allowed in 4.1 innings of work.  His next start was ugly as well, allowing another seven earned runs in four innings against the Mets.  A third of the runs he’s allowed ALL YEAR came in those two Read more

Miami (Chen) at New York (Matz) -145 O/U 8
Recommendation: Over


Miami's Wei-Yin Chen has been a mess for the past month, allowing 21 runs on 36 hits in his last 26 innings of work over a span of five starts. Chen was given an extra couple days of rest prior to his last start against Atlanta thinking that might be an aid to his recent struggles but it didn’t change much as he allowed four runs on eight hits in just 5.1 innings against a very weak hitting lineup. New York's offense has sprung to life in recent games scoring 40 runs during its current five-game win streak and should be able to have success against Chen. It's also worth noting that the Marlins bullpen behind Chen is very much taxed having played in seven straight days prior to tonight and not a single one of their starters lasted beyond 6 innings. Steven Matz also has concerns of his own. Matz is pitching through a bone spur in his elbow that has the potential to threaten his season if it flares up again. Matz has given up 16 runs on 29 hits in his last 21.2 innings and suddenly the long ball has been a problem with four home runs allowed over his last three starts. Miami handed Read more

San Francisco (Bumgarner) -145 at Oakland (Overton) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: San Francisco


The Oakland Athletics host the San Francisco Giants for the finale of their four-game set. The A’s won the first two games of this interleague series in San Francisco and then won again last night in Oakland 7-1. The Giants are sending their ace Madison Bumgarner to the hill to avoid the dreaded four-game sweep. He will face Dillon Overton for the A’s who is 1-0 on the year. Bumgarner is 8-4 with a sub 2.00 ERA but has lost back-to-back starts at Pittsburgh and against Philadelphia despite allowing a total of four runs in over 14 innings. The 26-year-old southpaw has has yielded more than two earned runs only three times in 16 outings this year and once in his last 13 starts. The line has shifted all the way from -185 to -145 which provides us with a discounted price on one of the best pitchers in the game and one of the best teams in the National League. Overton posted an 8-4 record with one complete game and a 3.01 ERA in 14 games with Triple-A Nashville. He was a former second round pick but Tommy John surgery caused his velocity to drop from the Read more
