Free MLB Pick: Texas Rangers +138 (Jim Feist)
You always have to be careful about pitchers coming off the DL or making their first start in some time. That’s the case here with Seattle lefty Cliff Lee. It’s his first start this season, but also his first start for his new team having been traded in the offseason. He faces a very good Texas lineup. The Rangers have a surprise starter in Colby Lewis, who is 3-0 with a 3.80 ERA fanning 28 in 23 innings. Seattle is laying a big price as chalk, yet this offense is 11th in the AL in runs scored. Play the Texas Rangers!
Free MLB Pick: San Diego Padres -124 (Tom Freese)
San Diego starter Clayton Richard has allowed just 10 runs total in his four starts this year. The Padres are 7-0 their last 7 home games and they are 11-2 their last 13 games overall. San Diego is 20-8 their last 28 games as home favorites and they are 7-1 their last 8 home starts made by Richard. Milwaukee starter David Bush lost 12-2 to Chicago in his last outing. The Brewers are 1-6 their last 7 games overall and they are 2-5 vs. lefty starters. Milwaukee is 8-25 in the last 33 starts made by Bush as road underdogs. PLAY SAN DIEGO (Richard vs. Bush)
Free MLB Pick: San Francisco Giants -140 (Jeff Alexander)
Zito is finally starting to earn that huge contract he signed a few years back. He’s off to a 3-0 start with an ERA of just 1.32 and a WHIP of only 0.842. Zito has been extraordinary against the Rockies throughout his career. In fact, he is 4-2 (8-3 on the money line) lifetime with an ERA of 1.98 and a WHIP of 1.060. Aaron Cook is really struggling this season, especially on the road where he is 0-2 with an ERA of 9.72 and a WHIP of 2.281. He is just 7-9 (7-13 against the money line) with an ERA of 5.09 and a WHIP of 1.621 in his career when starting the Giants. He figures to have his work cut out for himself tonight against a Giants club that is hitting the ball pretty well. The Rockies are only 1-9 against the money line vs. an NL team with a team batting average of .275 or better over the last 2 seasons, losing to these teams by an average score of 4.5 to 7.9. Take the Giants.
