Orioles vs. Rays MLB Over-Under Pick from Brad Diamond: June 25th 2017

Baltimore Orioles vs. Tampa Bay Rays
MLB Over-Under Pick: Over 9.5 runs -110 odds (June 25th 2017)

Thought TB had a real shot at winning yesterday, unfortunately, their pen gave away 5 runs in 3 innings of work costing any chance of cashing.  Sunday, we go back to the total board in the series.  Throwing for Baltimore RHP Tillman (1-5, 8.40) who in three starts on the road is 0-2 with a 13.92 ERA.  Last seven outings 0-5 with a 10+ ERA.  Tillman comes in 8-10 with a 4.11 ERA vs. the Rays.  Tampa Bay uses RHP Odorizzi (4-3, 3.78) who has been more effective than the O’s entry, though, in June the record 1-3 L4 starts in 20-1/3 innings of work. Odorizzi surrendered 19 runs (12 earned) and 6 home runs. The hurler has had some problems against the O’s with a 3-4 (13 starts) and a corresponding 5.15 ERA.   Baltimore (40-31 OVER) is a perfect 3-0 OVER after playing a game that jointly posted at least ten runs.  In addition, the Orioles are 5-0 OVER in roadies and 6-0 OVER against RHP.  The last six games against the division have gone OVER.  The Rays (47-29) show with incredible OVER numbers recently….12-0 OVER on turf, 10-1 OVER at home and 12-2 OVER vs. a hurler with a +1.30 WHIP.  If you’re looking for more, TB shows 10-1 OVER as a chalk and 4-0 L4 OVER with Odorizzi on the hill.  The Orioles shuffled their lineup again with Schoop hitting in the 4th slot, it paid dividends for everyone else.  By the way, the Orioles streak of allowing 5 or more in their last 15 games ended yesterday.  Good Luck, and thank you.

Rockies vs. Dodgers MLB Odds & Pick from Larry Ness: June 25th 2017

Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
MLB Pick: Dodgers -163 odds (June 25th 2017)

The Dodgers came into the 2017 season having won the NL West each of the last four years but LA still hasn’t made a World Series appearance since it upset the Oakland A’s way back in 1988 (LA has lost in the NLDS or NLCS in each of its 10 playoff appearances since 1988). However, 2017 could be LA’s year, as everything is coming up roses for the streaking Los Angeles Dodgers as the 2017 season approaches the All Star break. The Dodgers have won nine straight games and 15 of their last 16 heading into their series finale against the visiting Colorado Rockies on Sunday. Clayton Kershaw tossed six strong innings in become the first NL pitcher to reach 11 wins this season (KC’s Vargas also won his 11th game on Saturday) and help the Dodgers become the first NL team to reach 50 wins (50-26). Saturday’s 4-0 loss was Colorado’s fourth in a row and the 47-30 Rockies are now 3 1/2 games back of LA and a game back of Arizona.

Tyler Anderson (3-5, 5.75 ERA) will take the mound this afternoon for Colorado and Brandon McCarthy (6-3, 2.87 ERA) for the Dodgers. Anderson is rejoining the rotation after missing three weeks with left knee inflammation. He made a rare relief appearance on Thursday, allowing one hit with a walk and three strikeouts in one inning against Arizona. Anderson, who is 2-3 with a 3.57 ERA in six career starts against the Dodgers (team is 2-4).

McCarthy earned his first victory since May 27 on Tuesday, allowing four hits and a walk over six scoreless innings against the New York Mets. However, McCarthy has pitched very well in 2017, allowing two runs or less in 10 of his 12 starts this season (Dodgers are 8-4 in his starts), including six consecutive outings. McCarthy owns a 2-3 record and 4.57 ERA in eight career outings against the Rockies (teams are 4-4).

Anderson has already faced the Dodgers three time in 2017, losing all three with a 5.74 ERA in those three outings. McCarthy faces Colorado for the first time in 2017 but posted a 2.70 ERA in three starts vs the Rockies last year. Why go against the red-hot Dodgers here? After all, they are 31-10 in Chavez Ravine in 2017 (have outscored opponents 5.66-to-2.95) and are now 42-11 in their last 53 home games dating back to September 3, 2016.

Al McMordie betting the Cleveland Indians -170 odds on June 23rd 2017

Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Indians
MLB Pick: Cleveland -170 odds (June 23rd 2017)

At 7:10 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Cleveland Indians over the Minnesota Twins.  Few pitchers have been more inconsistent of the past several seasons than Cleveland RH Trevor Bauer.  Bauer can look like Max Scherzer in some games and then pitch like someone who just got called up to the Majors for the first time in September the next.  But if there’s one thing that Bauer seems to do consistently lately, it’s beat up on the Minnesota Twins.  Bauer has thrown quality outings in each of his last four starts against Minnie, and Cleveland has won all of those games – going back to last August – by a combined score of 20-7.

The Twins will send inexperienced southpaw Adalberto Mejia to the mound for his 10th start of the season tonight.  Mejia has a total of just 43 Major League innings under his belt, but that’s not potentially his biggest problem this evening.  The Indians have been absolutely demolishing left-handed pitching this season, registering more runs and hits against southpaws than any other team in the A.L. so far.  This plus the fact that Mejia has an ERA of 5.53 and a WHIP of 1.60 could add up to major trouble for him and the Twins.  Minny is 3-14 in the last 17 meetings with the Tribe.  Take Cleveland.  As always, good luck…Al McMordie.

Cleveland vs. Baltimore MLB Prediction from Will Rogers: June 22nd 2017

Cleveland Indians vs. Baltimore Orioles
MLB Prediction: Baltimore +117 odds (June 22nd 2017)

The set-up: The Indians surged into first place in the AL Central with a four-game sweep of the Twins in Minnesota Thursday through Sunday, where they outscored them 28-8. The Indians opened a four-game road series at Baltimore with a 12-0 Monday pasting of the Orioles but Baltimore rebounded by edging Cleveland 6-5 on Tuesday. The Indians won again last night though, beating the Orioles 5-1 for their seventh win in their last eight outings. Baltimore’s pitching continues to be a major cause for concern, as the Orioles have now allowed at least five runs in 18 consecutive games, just two shy of the major league mark set by Philadelphia back in 1924! The Orioles have dropped 10 of their last 14 to drop under .500 (35-36).

The pitching matchup: Mike Clevinger (2-3 & 3.89 ERA) takes the mound for Cleveland and Wade Miley (3-4 & 4.29 ERA) for Baltimore. Clevinger is coming off a four-inning stint in a doubleheader at Minnesota on Saturday (allowed two hits and one run in the Indians’ 6-2 win / he didn’t figure in the decision) but was then sent down to Triple-A Columbus. However, his stay was a short one, as he’s been recalled to get the start in this one. He’s made eight appearances, including seven starts (Cleveland is 3-4), so far in 2017. Clevinger didn’t fare well in his only career outing versus Baltimore, permitting four runs on fours hits with three walks in four innings of a no-decision on May 29, 2016 (9.00 ERA / team lost). Miley has surrendered six runs on six hits in consecutive outings but was able to walk away with the victory on Saturday after lasting 5 2/3 innings of a 15-7 victory versus St. Louis. “It’s been a grind, no doubt. Baseball’s going to throw that at you at some point every year,” Miley said of his struggles. Baltimore is 8-6 in his 14 starts so far in 2017. Miley’s made three career starts against Cleveland, going 1-1 with a 4.29 ERA (teams are 2-1).

The pick: Baltimore’s been in a steep decline for some time now, as after reaching 22-10 on May 9, the team has lost 25 of 38 games to fall into last place in the AL East. The defending AL champs are back on top in the AL Central at 38-32 but let’s note that Clevinger is a flawed pitcher and that the Orioles are still 24-13 at home on the season. Take Baltimore.

Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics Betting Odds & Pick: June 21st 2017

Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics
MLB Betting Pick: A’s +111 odds (June 21st 2017)

The Oakland A’s just swept the Yankees in four games at home.  They have been a sneaky good home bet this season at 22-15 on the year and +7.6 units of profit.  They are consistently home dogs with great value, which is the case again today against the Astros.

The A’s clearly have the edge on the mound today with Sean Manaea, who is 6-3 with a 4.01 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 12 starts with 73 K’s in 67 1/3 innings.  Manaea has owned the Astros, posting a 1.71 ERA and 0.987 WHIP in five career starts against them.

Mike Fiers is 4-2 with a 4.12 ERA and 1.361 WHIP in 13 starts this season, including 3-0 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.514 WHIP in seven road starts.  Fiers has never beaten the A’s, going 0-2 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.380 WHIP in six career starts against them.

The Astros are 1-5 in their last six games following a win.  The A’s are 6-0 in Manaea’s last six starts.  Houston is 1-5 in Fiers’ last six starts vs. Oakland.  Oakland is 7-0 in home games vs. a starting pitcher who gives up one or more HR’s/start this season.  Bet the A’s Wednesday.
