Doc’s Sports MLB Pick: Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox: July 24th 2013

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox
MLB Pick: White Sox +125 odds (July 24th 2013)

Doc’s Sports Wednesday MLB Free Pick. 4-0 run on 10* selections, low odds 10* pick goes Wednesday afternoon!

Free MLB Pick from Doc’s Sports Take #928 Chicago White Sox (+120) over Detroit Tigers (8:10pm ET) The Chicago White Sox host the Detroit Tigers in the series finale at US Cellular Field. The Tigers are clearly one of the favorites to win the AL pennant this season and the White Sox might as well write-off 2013 and chalk it up to the first year in what could be a lengthy rebuilding process. However, baseball is an interesting sport in that games are played every day and the best teams only win 60% of the time while the worst teams in over 40% of the time. In today’s game there are several reasons to like the White Sox and we’ll start with the starting pitchers. Anibal Sanchez goes for the Tigers and he’s really struggled over his last three starts since coming off the disabled list. He hasn’t made it past the sixth inning in any of those outings and has a weak 13-9 K/BB ratio collectively. He walked five batters in his last start against the Royals and didn’t look like himself on the mound. Left-hander John Danks goes for the White Sox and he’s always been one of the more underrated starting pitchers in the AL. He doesn’t throw very hard but he knows how to pitch and is in the same mold of his former teammate Mark Buehrle. He comes into today’s start 2-7 with a 4.52 ERA, but his peripheral numbers point to a much better pitcher. He’s only walking 1.0 batters per nine innings which is amongst the lowest in all of baseball so there are no freebie runs off of Danks. The Tigers lineup is potent, but they often times struggle with southpaws and Danks has been in good form. The Tigers also may be without the best player in baseball Miguel Cabrera today. The reigning MVP is nursing a sore hip and his absence from the lineup would be enormous. The pressure is squarely on this Tigers team in the second half as they haven’t pulled away in a weak AL Central division this season yet. The White Sox, on the other hand, should be playing loose from this point forward. The price on this game is just a little bit too high and we’ll play the White Sox as home underdogs.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction: July 24th 2013

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals
MLB Prediction: Pirates +127 odds (July 24th 2013)

Ryan won his fifth straight 25* Titan with the +122 Mets defeating the Braves 4-1. He is now 14 games over 0.500 with these 25* MLB Titans and has made the Dime Player $20,540 for the season. This one is backed by an awesome 11-2 winning game situation. $25.00 for the works.

10* graded MLB prediction on the Pittsburgh Pirates as they take on the Washington Nationals in NL action set to start at 7:00 PM ET. The Pirates have won three straight games and are now 20 games over 0.500 and in very strong position to earn a playoff spot. Even more important to the city of Pittsburgh and the Pirate fans is the fact they need to win just 23 more games of the remaining 64 games to post their first winning season in nearly 2 decades. Washington is floundering amid a very poor and inconsistent offense. Pirates have the second best record in baseball and they are playing far better team baseball than Washington could ever dream of possessing in their locker room. The simulator shows a high probability that the Pirates will win this game. One of the reasons Pittsburgh is at the top of MLB play is the simple fact that they defeat the losing record teams they should defeat. Pirates are a solid 36-14 (+22.7 Units) against the money line when playing against a team with a losing record this season. Nationals are 1-7 (-8.0 Units) against the money line when facing NL teams allowing 4.3 or less runs/game in the second half of the season this season. Take Pittsburgh.

Will Rogers’ MLB Pick: Marlins vs. Rockies Prediction: July 24th 2013

Miami Marlins vs. Colorado Rockies
Prediction: Colorado -163 odds (July 24th 2013)

I’m taking the Rockies as my free play Wednesday. Miami has come into Denver and surprisingly taken the first two games of this four-game set. I can’t see them making it three in a row. Not with Major League Baseball’s worst offense.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Miami Offense – Of course, I’ll start here. The Marlins rank last in baseball in essentially every offensive category, including total hits, team batting average, home runs, on base percentage and slugging percentage. Even in their wins the last two days, they’ve managed just seven runs total. They’ve been fortunate that Colorado has scored only three. The Marlins recently went 37 innings without scoring a single run. They face a lefty in Jorge De La Rosa tonight and that’s bad news because Miami averages just 2.7 runs per game vs. southpaws.

2. Home Field Advantage – It hasn’t mattered so far in this series, but with De La Rosa on the hill, it should tonight. That because the Rockies’ starter owns a fantastic 22-4 TSR as a home favorite of -150 or more. Miami is still only 16-34 on the road this season.

3. X-Factor – Miami has not won three consecutive road games all season.

Selection: This is a free play on the Colorado Rockies (1*).
