MLB Free Pick Monday Royals at Twins

Royals at Twins 5:10 pacific Twins starter Joe Ryan had a rough go of it last week as he was lit up by the Braves. After a 5-home run barrage, Ryan was pulled after only 3 innings. I'll give him a mulligan though - Ryan was coming off a 112 pitch effort the start before and today he gets class relief as he faces a Royals lineup that has the … [Read more...]

MLB Free Pick Sunday Astros at Rangers

Astros at Rangers 11:35 am Pacific Astros hitters have been top 10 in MLB working walks over the last 30 days. That's going to be an important factor today  vs Rangers lefty Andrew Heaney. Heaney's efficiency crumbles once hitters get on base and the fact that he is averaging just shy of a walk per inning over his last 3 starts in Arlington … [Read more...]

MLB Free Picks Over/Under Saturday

A Lucky "7" Over/Under selections for today's MLB action. Rays at Seattle: Under 7.5: Rays SP Glasnow should rack up strikeouts today. Mariners SP Kirby has multiple underlying stats showing strong upward trends. He's primed for a strong start today. Nationals at Phillies Under 8.5: Nationals hitters don't strike out much - but that's about … [Read more...]

MLB Free Pick Friday Red Sox at Blue Jays

Red Sox at Blue Jays 4:07 pacific Red Sox starting pitcher James Paxton is sporting the highest swinging strike rate (17.9%) and velocity (95.6 MPH) of his career so far in 2023 - his arm is sound. He's depending more on his 4-seam fastball, which is providing results - Paxton holds a 2.22 ERA over his last 4 starts. Blue Jays bats should be … [Read more...]

MLB Free Pick Thursday Brewers at Mets

Brewers at Mets 4:10 pacific Mets SP Max Scherzer’s last start at Citi Field was on June 13 vs. the Yankees. He was pulled in the 3rd inning after allowing 6 earned runs. The silver lining was that he did not walk anyone and ended up with a no-decision that day. Aside from the aforementioned debacle vs the Yankees, Scherzer’s other starts at … [Read more...]

Free Pick Wednesday Phillies at Cubs

Phillies at Cubs 5:05 pacific Cubs SP Drew Smyly’s shut out performance over 5 innings vs the Pirates 10 days ago is not what it seems. He gave up many walks and got lucky to get out of multiple bases-loaded jams. If Phillies batters begin to get on base early, I believe it will be a difficult outing for Smyly at Wrigley tonight. Over the past … [Read more...]

MLB Free Picks / Selections for Tuesday

Rockies at Reds 4:10 PDT - It’s a small sample size (13 innings) but Rockies starting pitcher Noah Davis has a strong ground ball lean (61%) to start off his MLB career. It will serve him well today vs Reds hitters that are top-10 in MLB when it comes to hitting fly-balls. Davis has struck out 10 batters in the 9 innings he’s pitched away from … [Read more...]

MLB Free Picks / Selections for Saturday

Marlins at Nationals 4:05 PM Eastern  My bets on MLB teams at -150 or more are few and far between but I have a lot of confidence in Marlins SP Braxton Garrett today and no confidence at all in Nationals starter Jake Irvin. Marlins hitters hold a sky-high ISO away from Miami (ISO is a power/slugging metric). This matchup is ripe for Marlins … [Read more...]

MLB Free Picks / Selections for Friday

Marlins at Nationals 7:05 pm Eastern Nationals starting pitcher Trevor Williams is putting up good strikeout numbers, but he's been terribly inefficient often pushing the 90 to 100 pitch mark after only 5 or 6 innings - Williams has not pitched more than 6 innings this season and will eventually turn the ball over to a Nationals bullpen that is … [Read more...]
