Free MLB Prediction: Astros vs. Diamondbacks Under 7.5 Runs
1* Take the Arizona Diamondbacks Under, I look for a pitchers dual here Sunday afternoon with Wandy Rodriguez (12-8, 2.82 ERA) and Dan Haren (12-8, 2.73 ERA) on the mound. Rodriguez has allowed just 7 hits and 1 earned run over his last 2 starts while lasting an average of 7.5 innings per start and I look for him to have another solid start Sunday afternoon. Haren has pitched solid at home this season with an ERA of just 2.07 over 12 starts. Haren owned the Astros allowing just 2 hits and 1 earned run in his only start against them this season over 9 innings. The Over/Under is 1-6 for the Astros in their last 7 games as an underdog and the Astros are hitting just .235 as a team over their last 7 games. The Diamondbacks are hitting just .232 against left hand starters this season and I look for them to struggle against Rodriguez Sunday afternoon. Take the Under as my MLB Free Play for Sunday.

Free MLB Prediction: Los Angeles Angels -1.5 +100 (Runline)
After going down to Oakland Saturday, expect the Angels to bounce back in game 4 of this series to earn a split. The Halos have the big edge on the hill with Lackey, who is 15-4 when starting against Oakland with an ERA of 2.66 and a WHIP of 1.131 in his career. Off back-to-back losses and subpar performances, I expect him to bring his A-game this afternoon. The A’s have dropped Anderson’s last 3 starts, during which he has posted an ERA of 5.21. The Angels are 4-0 in Lackey’s last 4 home starts vs. the Athletics, 6-1 in his last 7 starts vs. the Athletics, and 36-15 in his last 51 starts following a team loss in their previous game. He’s the guy who we want to have the ball for the Halos today. Angels on the run line. Courtesy of Jimmy Boyd
