Free MLB Pick: Over 8.5 Runs (Jim Feist)
Tampa Bay is an easy home run park and the Rays have the top offense in the AL. Oakland is in town this week with a much improved offense. They just scored 22 runs in three games against Cleveland, and that was in a huge park like Oakland. Tampa Bay is much easier on hitters and tougher on pitchers. Rays righty James Shields hasn’t been sharp, allowing more hits than innings pitched. The last 5 home games the Rays are 4-1 over the total. Play the Athletics/Rays Over the total.
Free MLB Pick: Atlanta Braves +145 (Jeff Alexander)
Look for the Braves to end their losing streak tonight. Plays against any team (ST LOUIS) – poor hitting team (AVG <=.250) against an average starting pitcher (ERA=4.20 to 5.20) – NL, with a starting pitcher whose ERA is 2.70 or better on the season (NL), are 58-37 since 1997, 15-6 the last 3 seasons and 25-12 the last 5 seasons. Plus, the Cards have had trouble closing out series’. In fact, they are just 4-10 in their last 14 game 3’s of a series. They are also only 1-4 in their last 5 games as a home favorite of -151 to -200. The Braves are 8-2 in their last 10 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. Bet the Braves tonight.
