MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals

New York (deGrom) at St. Louis (Martinez) O/U -120 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Under


Looking to play tonight's New York-St. Louis game under the total with two above average starters and a key number of 7.5. St. Louis's Carlos Martinez has a ton of talent but has a tendency to lose it mentally on the mound. When he's not battling himself upstairs, the results are there. After losing five straight starts in late May, Martinez has been one of the best starters in the National League with a 2.66 ERA over his last 14 starts. In his last outing he took yet another step forward by focusing less on velocity and more of command and movement. It paid off in spades as he allowed only one run over seven innings at Houston. New York's Jacob deGrom's velocity recently returned to 2015's levels. Prior to his last start, deGrom had allowed only two earned runs over 27.2 innings. Last Thursday, the Giants pounded him for 13 hits and eight earned runs. deGrom chalked up the outing and nothing more than missing a few spots in key situations. In 15 of his 22 starts, he's allowed two earned runs or less. He should be able to navigate a banged up Cardinals lineup that is Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres

Arizona (Greinke) -140 at San Diego (Cosart) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Over


San Diego's Jarred Cosart is nothing more than a stopgap starter at this point. Miami wisely unloaded him back in July and the Padres are just hoping for him to chew up enough innings to avoid having to throw someone in their plans for the future. Cosart's velocity is down about 3 mph from last year and he's consistently struggled with his mechanics and command. In 34 innings, he's walked 24 batters and owns a 5.03 ERA despite allowing only one home run. As expected, Zack Greinke's move to Arizona resulted in a significant regression. He's pitched well at times this season but shows some serious red flags by failing to pitching into the third inning in two of his last three starts. Keep in mind, Greinke is getting up there in age and is ultra-competitive. Arizona was expected to contend in the West this season but finds itself 21 games under .500 and playing out this string. Not convinced Greinke is going to be dialed in mentally the remainder of the season. Also note that the Padres' lineup is no longer as right-hand dominant after various trades and call-ups. I expect them to Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Twins at Atlanta Braves

Minnesota (Gibson) at Atlanta (Foltynewicz)
Recommendation: Atlanta -115 5-inning


Hard throwing 24-year-old Mike Foltynewicz takes the hill for the Braves -- only his second home start over his last five outings. The schedule of late hasn't been friendly with road tilts at St. Louis, Washington, Colorado, and Minnesota. His lone home start came against Pittsburgh who grades out as an above average NL offense. Those five outings caused his ERA to jump from 3.70 to 4.50. A return to Turner Field should yield better results as he shows a respectable 3.71 ERA and .186 BAA at home. Folty has occasionally allowed his emotions to get the best of him, but from a stuff standpoint, he has shown the ability to successfully navigate most MLB lineups.

Kyle Gibson will start for the Twins on the heels of three shaky outings. After a solid July that saw him post a 3.69 ERA in five starts, Gibson has a 7.98 ERA in three August outings. The Braves lineup is currently sporting a .748 team OPS over the last 30 days and should benefit from the call up of top prospect Dansby Swanson. And while the Braves have the reputation of being one of the worst Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees

Toronto (Dickey) -110 at New York (Green) O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Under


New and youthful Yankees lineup showed positive signs for the future this past week as a number are off to nice offensive starts. Have some reservations about that portion of the lineup tonight however as they face a top tier knuckleball in R.A. Dickey. Add to that the fact that none of the other everyday lineup veterans except for SS Starlin Castro (.286) have a batting average above .250 against Dickey and it becomes clear that New York may have some run scoring difficulties tonight. The other side of the coin is Yankees hard throwing righty Chad Green (avg 94.7 MPH fastball has topped out at 99) who the Blue Jays will face for the first time. The unfamiliarity combined with the subtraction of slugging Jose Bautista from the lineup due to injury could be advantageous for Green. Toronto has been in the midst of a recent offensive slump scoring four or less in 11 of their last 14 games, a stretch in which their game batting average has been below .265 12 times and their on base percentage .290 or less 10 times. Each bullpen has all of their key arms available which can Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels at Cleveland Indians

Los Angeles (Chacin) at Cleveland (Kluber) O/U 8
Recommendation: Cleveland -1.5 -115


The Cleveland Indians host the Los Angeles Angels tonight for the opening game of a four-game series. Tonight’s game has an obvious mismatch with Cory Kluber squaring off against the visiting Angels starter Jhoulys Chacin. The 28-year-old Chacin has a 5.22 ERA since joining the Angels, which includes 10 starts and eight relief appearances. Chacin has not started a game since July 1 when he allowed five earned runs and 12 hits in 4.2 innings. After pitching for years in Colorado, Chacin was able to finally escape Coors Field with brief stints with the Diamondbacks and Braves. Now, he’s back in a tough situation of having to navigate the American League with fringe stuff. On the flipside, Kluber has been solid of late. He now has five straight starts of seven innings or more in which he has allowed three or fewer runs. In each start he recorded seven strikeouts and also walked three or fewer. The Angels have been on the highway for the last week and haven't fared well with no wins in five tries and only three runs of offense over their last three contests. Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Tigers at Seattle Mariners

Detroit (Verlander) +100 at Seattle (Hernandez) O/U 7
Recommendation: Detroit


Since coming off the DL, Seattle has gone 3-1 in Felix Hernandez’s four starts.  Those results aren’t sustainable, because King Felix is no ‘King’ at this stage of his career. The results don’t lie.  Hernandez has a 5.26 ERA in those four starts since coming off the DL.  He’s allowed 35 baserunners while only notching 19 strikeouts, while giving up as many home runs as he did for the entire first half of the campaign.  His full season numbers are now below the MLB average in just about every advanced metric category.  His fastball velocity is down, his strikeout rate is down and his swinging strike percentage is down.  To make matters worse, he’s got a lousy track record against numerous current Tigers, including key middle of the order bats Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Ian Kinsler.  Seattle’s bullpen behind him is completely spent following last night’s marathon.

Meanwhile, Justin Verlander is headed in the opposite direction of late.  Since getting extended rest Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Baltimore Orioles at Oakland A's

Baltimore (Miley) -130 at Oakland (Neal) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Baltimore


Oakland's pitching staff just lost two more arms as Sonny Gray and Jesse Hahn were added to the DL. As a result, the A's are forced to comb the depths of their farm system for viable options. Tonight's starter, Zach Neal, barely has bullpen quality stuff let alone enough to navigate a MLB lineup multiple times. He started one game back in late May and was torched for seven runs over four innings. His strikeout numbers are alarmingly low, even at the Minor League level. This year alone at Triple-A and Oakland, Neal is averaging less than half a strikeout per inning. Wade Miley doesn't command much respect in the betting markets and rightfully so given his season-long stats. Home runs have been his biggest bugaboo with 19 allowed over 117 innings. But Miley hasn't been that bad of late with a 4.13 ERA over his last nine starts. He walks into a decent situation tonight with a favorable ballpark and opposing lineup. There aren't too many situations where I'm looking to support an average starter like Miley as road chalk but Neal's resume suggests he's not even worthy of the tag Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Cincinnati Reds at St. Louis Cardinals

Cincinnati (Reed) at St. Louis (Wacha) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: St. Louis -1.5 +105


Not quite ready to sell St. Louis yet despite their overwhelming inconsistencies and current 2-6 streak.  The “cornered animal” metaphor fits the Cardinals pretty well tonight as they begin a three game home set with the NL Central last place Reds. Michael Wacha recovered after a brutal first inning last week against Cincinnati and expect to see an outing here more like his 2nd-5th inning stretch where he allowed 0 runs and only two baserunners. Wacha has dominated Cincinnati the past two seasons posting a 1.74 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in five starts against them. He is 4-0 in those games and St. Louis is 5-0. Keeping Reds speedster Billy Hamilton off the bases (21 steals and 15 runs scored since the All-Star Break) will be key for Wacha who has owned Hamilton in their matchups. In 20 ABs against Wacha, Hamilton has one hit and one walk. Joey Votto (1.073 OPS) and Zack Cosart (1.200 OPS) have been the toughest on Wacha and each have 20+ ABs. For St. Louis offensively, seeing lefty Cody Reed again so quickly (he faced Wacha in the Cards' 5-4 win Read more

NY Mets (Matz) -125 at NY Yankees (Green) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under


The New York Yankees have some of the weakest splits in MLB against left-handers this season: .314 OBP (22nd), .382 SLG (27th), and .129 ISO (28th). The production is projected to be even worse moving forward considering recently departed Carlos Beltran ranks among the league leaders against southpaws (.405/.640/.289). Tonight they face a young and talented lefty in Steve Matz for the first time. Matz reportedly has a bone spur in his elbow which is a concern but he continues to throw quality innings with a 3.19 ERA over his last five outings. New York counters with righty Chad Green who is essentially auditioning for a starting role for next season. Right now, he's probably better suited for the bullpen but he's shown flashes of competence with 27 strikeouts over 23.2 innings. His overall numbers are somewhat skewed after allowing seven runs and four dingers in a road start against Cleveland back in early July. Outside of that outing, he's been effective. And note that New York's top two bullpen arms, Dellin Betances and Tyler Clippard, are rested and ready after not throwing in Read more

Washington (Strasburg) at Arizona (Bradley) O/U 8
Recommendation: Washington -1.5 -120


Arizona has gone through some significant injury problems this season which have played an important part in another disappointing season. What is not a surprise however, is that their bullpen remains a mess and since the All-Star break it has been in full meltdown mode. Unloading their bridge to closer pieces Tyler Clippard (Yankees) and Brad Ziegler (Red Sox) has left them with a free for all in the pen where 25-year-old Jake Barrett is now the closer. The situation figures to get better in time once ace Zack Greinke, no. 2 starter Shelby Miller and back-of-the-rotation Rubby De LaRosa return because the D’Backs can then remake their bullpen possible using De Larosa and current starter Zack Godley. For now though, oppponents will continue to focus on running the starter out of the game early and get into the bullpen. Tonight’s starter  Archie Bradley has thrown quality starts in five of his last seven but has not exceeded six innings in any of them. That opens the door for the Nationals to get into the pen tonight and with their ace Stephen Read more
