MLB | Indians vs White Sox
Play on: White Sox +170 at YouWager

TREVOR BAUER (R) vs. DYLAN COVEY (R)

Cleveland starter Bauer logged 113 pitches over eight innings in a road win over the Tigers on Friday and could easily find himself getting fatigued in this outing. Meanwhile, the White Sox starter Covey has looked very promising for a rebuilding Pale Hose team, recording a stingy 2.22 ERA over five starts and 22 1/3 innings while allowing only 1 HR. Cleveland is a top tier team, but have struggled offensively on the road this season averaging just 4.1 RPG on a lowly .222 BA and could easily find themselves on the wrong side of the final score here this evening.

BAUER team when he starts is just 10-15 against the money line vs. teams outscored by opp by 0.5 or more runs/game on the season dating back to last season.Indians are also just 7-15 in Bauers last 22 road starts vs. a team with a losing record.White Sox are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series.

The White Sox are 7-0 on the money-line as a underdog after a loss in which they had at least three times as many hits as runs which happened yesterday.

MLB Home underdogs with a money line of +125 or more (CHI WHITE SOX) - below average AL hitting team (AVG .265 or less) against a team with a bad bullpen (ERA 5.00 or more ), with a slugging percentage of .390 or worse over their last 20 games are 33-21 L/21 seasons for a 61% conversion rate for bettors.

Play on the White Sox on the moneyline

MLB | Astros vs A's
Play on: Astros -170 at YouWager

Free pick on Astros -

The Astros have won 6 straight and are a perfect 5-0 to start out their 10-game road trip, which started with a 4-game sweep of the Rangers and continued with yesterday's 6-3 win in the opener against the A's. Houston's offense has scored at least 4 runs in all 6 games during the win streak. With the starting pitching this team has, they are extremely tough to beat when they are scoring at this rate.

I expect more of the same in game two against the A's on Wednesday, which is why I got no problem laying the big juice with Houston on the road. The Astros will send out Cy Young candidate Gerrit Cole, who is 7-1 with a 2.16 ERA and 0.844 WHIP in 13 starts. Cole is also 5-0 with a 1.72 ERA and 0.851 WHIP in 7 road starts. Houston has only managed to lose 2 of his 13 starts this season.

A's will counter with Paul Blackburn, who is coming off his first start of 2018 last Thursday. Blackburn pitched well after the call up from Triple-A, allowing just 1 run on 3 hits in 6 innings. However, that was against the Royals, who aren't a good offensive team. This Astros lineup is a whole different beast and I look for Blackburn to struggle big time in this one. Take Houston!

Jack’s Free Pick Wednesday: Kansas City Royals +111

The Kansas City Royals are showing solid value as home underdogs to the Cincinnati Reds tonight. The Royals lost Game 1 and will be out for revenge in Game 2. These are two of the worst teams in baseball, but I think the Royals have a nice motivational edge as well as an advantage on the mound.

Jason Hammel has really started to pitch well for the Royals. He has gone 2-1 with a 2.96 ERA in his last four starts, allowing just 8 earned runs in 24 1/3 innings. Hammel is also 4-1 with a 3.50 ERA and 1.181 WHIP in 11 career starts against Cincinnati, including 4-0 with a 0.75 ERA in his last four starts against them, giving up just 2 earned runs in 24 innings.

Tyler Mahle will be getting the ball for the Reds tonight. He’s getting way too much respect from oddsmakers. Mahle is 4-6 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.427 WHIP in 13 starts this season. He has been at his worst on the road, going 3-3 with a 4.19 ERA and 1.719 WHIP in seven starts while averaging just 4.9 innings per start.

The Reds are 14-43 in their last 57 interleague road games. Cincinnati is 2-8 in its last 10 games following a win. Kansas City is 22-9 in its last 31 interleague games vs. a team with a losing record. The Royals are 5-1 in the last six meetings. Bet the Royals Wednesday.

MLB | PIT vs ARI
Play on: OVER 7½ +100

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach MLB Game #905 Wednesday Free Pick OVER the total in Arizona Diamondbacks vs Pittsburgh Pirates @ 3:40 ET - Based on some recent results with these pitchers, there has been a big move to the under. However, keep in mind, the pitchers are only a portion of the equation in handicapping. Yes, they are important but certainly another key aspect is how teams are swinging the sticks and right now both of these lineups are getting the job done. That said, this will be a contrarian play but certainly it is a value play! The total has dropped to a 7.5 and the Diamondbacks Zack Greinke is 0-2 with a 5.73 ERA in his two day game starts this season. That is not necessarily a fluke either! Taking his day game outings since the beginning of the 2016 season, Greinke has a 4.56 ERA in afternoon action. The Arizona right-hander enters this start having allowed 21 hits in his last 18 and 1/3 innings. As for Pittsburgh's Jameson Taillon, he has pitched a little better recently but upon closer inspection of his last 4 starts he had a shutout in one outing. In the other 3 starts, the Pirates right-hander compiled a 6.23 ERA. Pittsburgh has scored 5 runs or more in 5 of their last 7 games and is averaging 6.7 runs per game their last 3 games. Arizona has won 9 of their last 11 games and the Diamondbacks are averaging scoring 7.5 runs per game during this hot streak. Free Pick OVER the total in Arizona

MLB | Mets vs Braves
Play on: Mets -110 at 5dimes

I understand the Mets are dog excrement. They are 3-14 in their last 17 games, including 1-9 in their last 10. The Mets have scored the grand total of 10 runs in their last eight games. That's an average of 1.2 runs. But one run by the Mets just might be enough to beat the Braves because Jacob deGrom is pitching. I rate him the second-best pitcher in the National League right now in back of only Max Scherzer. No pitcher holds a lower ERA since April 21 than deGrom at 0.81. The Braves have scored one run in 18 innings against deGrom this season. He has a 1.84 ERA lifetime ERA versus Atlanta in 14 starts. It's very rare to lay such a low price with such an elite pitcher. The pitiful Mets offense has a chance to break out, too, against the Braves as this is shaping up as a bullpen game for Atlanta. Rookie Mike Soroka is going to start. He's been sidelined since May 12 because of a shoulder strain. The Mets faced him on May 1. Soroka has given up five earned during his last two starts spanning just 8 2/3 innings. He is going to be on a pitch count. The huge pitching edge and fair lay price puts me on the Mets even though I have to hold my nose taking them. (Editor's note: Stephen Nover has his strongest day game total of the season going today in addition to this free selection. Don't miss any of Stephen's winning plays!)

MLB | Angels vs Mariners
Play on: Mariners +104 at BMaker

My free play is on the Sea Mariners at 4:10 ET. The Mariners have hit seven HRs while winning the first two of their three-game series with the LA Angels and have now won 10 of their last 12 to move a a season-high 19 games above .500 at 43-24. Nelson Cruz homered twice on Monday as the Mariners won the opener 5-3, then Mitch Haniger and Ryon Healy both hit HRs in Tuesday's 6-3 victory, off-setting Mike Trout's two HRs in each of the first two games. Trout's 11th and 12th career multi-HR efforts were his fourth at Safeco Field (a record for a visiting player) and increased his major league-leading total to 23 round-trippers. However, Trout's four HRs over the past two nights haven't translated into victories and after a terrific 13-3 start to the 2018 season, the 37-31 Angels find themselves 6 1/2 games back of the first-place Mariners as the look to avoid a three-game sweep at Safeco in this afternoon contest.

Wednesday's pitching matchup will feature LA's Garrett Richards (4-4, 3.26 ERA) going up against Seattle lefty Marco Gonzales (7-3, 3.28 ERA). Richards owns an impressive 2.53 ERA over his last six starts but remains win-less during that stretch (he's 0-3 and the team is 2-4). In fact, his last win came back on May 4 vs the Mariners, when he scattered four hits over 6 2/3 scoreless innings of a 5-0 victory. That win made him 6-4 with a 2.91 ERA in 19 career appearances (11 starts) versus Seattle.

Gonzales leads the Mariners in victories (seven) and is looking to win his fifth consecutive start. He has posted an outstanding 0.81 ERA over his last five outings, winning the last four after settling for a no-decision back on May 17 when he allowed a single unearned run over 5.2 innings against the Tigers. Gonzalez escaped with a no-decision against the Angels back on May 5, when he yielded four runs and nine hits over six innings, leaving him with a 4.40 ERA in three career starts vs Los Angeles.

"We're not swinging the bats as a team," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "It puts our pitchers under a lot of pressure to make pitches. And any mistakes we had (Tuesday) they hit out of the park. Give those guys some credit, but one guy can't carry you. Mike is swinging the bat very well, but we need some other guys to step up." LA should have its work cut out for itself against Gonzalez, who has allowed just 21 hits in 33.1 innings during a five-game stretch that has established him as a solid member of the Seattle rotation. Play Seattle to sweep the LA Angels.

Good luck...Larry

Soccer | Seattle Sounders FC vs New York Red Bulls
Play on: New York Red Bulls -168 at YouWager
New York Red Bulls vs Seattle Sounders Free Pick June 13, 2018. The New York Red Bulls have scored more than their fair share of goals in the MLS this season. Their 28 goals total in just 13 matches, is three times higher than Seattle has managed this season. The Sounders have lost four of their last five overall, and they have been outscored 6-1 in their last two trips to New York. The home team has won four straight meetings in this series, and that's a trend that is likely to continue here tonight. The Red Bulls are coming off a draw versus the Columbus Crew, and they have earned points in four of their last five matches overall. The Red Bulls are 4-1-1 at home, and they have out-scored opponents 15-3 in those six matches. Take NYRB. GL,

Play on: Reds -106 at 5dimes

10* FREE MLB PICK (Reds -106)

I'll take my chances here with Cincinnati on the road against the Royals. The Reds come in having won their last two after taking the series opener 5-1 in extra innings on Tuesday. Cincinnati is clicking offensively right now. The Reds are averaging 5.0 runs/game and hitting .299 as a team over their last 7 games. In comparison, the Royals are only averaging 2.3 runs/game and hitting .187 as a team in their last 7 games. Considering we have a pretty even pitching matchup with Cincinnati's Tyler Mahle and Kansas City's Jason Hammel, I'll gladly side with the team that's producing at the plate. Give me the Reds -106!

Play on: UNDER 8 -120

1* Free Sharp Play on Mets vs Braves under 8 -120

I think the books have set the total too high for Wednesday's NL East action that has the Braves hosting the Mets. New York will send out one of the best starters in the game in Jacob deGrom, who is 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA and 1.008 WHIP in 13 starts. deGrom has had no problem shutting down the Braves, as he owns a 1.84 ERA over 14 career starts against Atlanta. The Braves counter with Mike Soroka, who has been hit or miss in his 3 starts in 2018. However, his best start came against these Mets, when he allowed just 1 run over 6 innings. New York is also in a major funk at the plate right now. The Mets haven't scored more than 3 runs in 8 straight games and have scored 2 or fewer in 7 of those contests. Bet the UNDER 8!

MLB | Giants vs Marlins
Play on: Marlins +106 at 5dimes

#MLB FREE PICK FROM MIKE LUNDIN

I like the Miami Marlins to set themselves up for the sweep of this four-game series with a third straight win Wednesday night.

The Miami Marlins are just 6-7 when they hand the ball to Caleb Smith (5-6, 3.70 ERA) this season, but they've won three of the past four and the 26 year old has pitched well at Marlins Park all year compiling a solid 2.90 ERA in six starts.

The Giants' are 3-6 with rookie left-hander Andrew Suarez (2-4, 5.06 ERA) on the mound and in five road starts this year, Suarez is 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA.

The Fish are 7-1 against the Giants over the last two years, a dominance likely to continue here.

Free pick on Miami Marlins.

The Brewers are a +130 underdog, while the total is set at 8 runs. As of Saturday afternoon, 65 percent of public bets are being placed on host St. Louis. Check out our MLB Public Betting Page for the latest updates. Flaherty throws six shutout frames Jack Flaherty threw six shutout innings Friday night in a 5-2 home win over Milwaukee. He allowed three hits while striking out seven and walking three. Bud Norris earned his 24th save as he allowed one hit and struck out one in an inning of work. Jose Martinez ended the game 2-for-4 with a double and a run to help lead the offense. Marcell Ozuna was 1-for-4 with a pair of RBIs. Jedd Gyorko went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk.  Moustakas reaches base three times Brewers third baseman Mike Moustakas did not have a hit yesterday, but he managed to walk three times in four plate appearances. Christian Yelich was 2-for-5 with a double and a run to help pace the offense. Lorenzo Cain finished 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run. Jesus Aguilar was 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs. Freddy Peralta took the loss as he allowed three earned runs on three hits with five strikeouts and three walks over six innings. Wade Miley (2-1, 2.23 ERA) takes the mound today for Milwaukee, while St. Louis turns to Miles Mikolas (12-3, 2.85). MLB Betting Trends Milwaukee The Brewers are 2-6 in their last eight road games. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 Milwaukee games overall. St. Louis The Cardinals are 7-1 in their last eight games following a win. St. Louis is 16-5 in its last 21 games overall. Prediction: Miley has seemingly reinvented himself as a pitcher this season, drastically shifting the percentages which he throws his various pitches. Meanwhile, Mikolas is enjoying a fantastic season back in MLB after pitching overseas. While I expect the Cardinals to get a couple runs off Miley and perhaps the same goes for the Brewers off Mikolas, I ultimately expect pitching to dominate and this game stays under the total.     MLB DAILY PREDICTION: BREWERS/CARDINALS UNDER 8
