Play on: OVER 5½ -109

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Rotation #17 Friday Free Pick OVER the total in St Louis Blues vs San Jose Sharks @ 8:05 ET - The over is 3-0 in this series and two of those games totaled 9 goals apiece! No sense in bucking the trend now as it is showing no signs of slowing down. The Sharks have allowed 3.4 goals per game in their last 5 games. The Blues have allowed an average of 4 goals per game in their last 5 games against San Jose. Long-term on only 4 of the Blues last 13 conference finals games have resulted in an under. The Sharks are 8-2 to the over this season in a road game with a posted total of 5.5 goals. When leading in a playoff series this post-season, San Jose is 4-1 to the over. Look for all of the above trends to continue Friday. Free Pick OVER the total in St Louis

MLB | Giants vs Diamondbacks
Play on: Diamondbacks -125 at Pinnacle

Play - Arizona Diamondbacks w/Kelly vs. Samardzija (Game 912).

Edges - Diamondbacks: Kelly 3.20 ERA at home as opposed to 6.53 ERA away this season … Giants: Samardzija 0-3 last 3 team-starts in this park, and 1-8 last 9 team-starts in May … With that, we recommend a 1* play on Arizona. Thank you and good luck as always.

MLB | Giants vs Diamondbacks
Play on: Diamondbacks -125 at 5dimes

The MLB comp play is on Arizona at 9:40 eastern. The D-backs are in a solid system that is 13-2 since 2004 playing on home favorites off a -140 or higher home favored win scoring 10 or more runs vs a team like SF that also won as a -140 or higher home favorite. Arizona is 5-0 with rest and has Kelly on the mound. SF is 0-4 off a win and has lost 36 of 51 vs losing teams as well as 7 of 10 with rest. Samardzija has dropped 28 of 39 vs a winning teams, 9 of 12 on the road and 4 of 5 here. Look for Arizona to take this one. For the MLB Free pick we are siding with Arizona. RobV- GC

MLB | Giants vs Diamondbacks
Play on: Diamondbacks -127 at YouWager

My 1* Free Play is on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

This is the opener of a three-game set.

The visitors hand the ball to Jeff Samardzija (2-1, 3.51 ERA), who has interestingly allowed 11 first-inning runs over eight starts (and that includes eight long-balls.) Incredibly “The Shark” has a 12.38 ERA over the first inning, compared to a 1.36 ERA over his other 33 innings pitched.

Samardzija though hasn’t lasted longer than 5 1/3’s frames yet this year and he hasn’t won since mid April.

Unfortunately a date vs. the Diamondbacks is not what the doctor ordered for Samardzija to get back on track either as he’s a pedestrian 3-4 with a 4.12 ERA in 17 career appearances vs. them (it’s also interesting to note that the Giants themselves have been outscored 46-6 in the first inning this season.)

The home side counters with Merrill Kelly (3-4, 4.70) who comes in off a decent outing vs. the Braves, allowing three runs over seven innings of work.

Note that Arizona is one of the best hitting clubs in the Senior Circuit, collectively batting .260 with 64 home runs and an MLB best 102 doubles over 44 games played thus far.

I think the hard-hitting home side is well worth the price of admission in this spot. Lay the price.

Good luck…Larry

Play on: Padres -152 at BetOnline

Ben Burns is SO HOT with his 'premium' plays that some may not realize that he's also got a 12-2 RECORD with this month's 'free' plays. Here's another winner, this one coming from today's Pirates/Padres showdown at Petco Park.

While it got a little close, I won with the 'under' in last night's series opener. The Padres won 4-3. The Padres should have a solid advantage again this evening. Lucchesi has pitched well here. He's 3-1 with a 2.89 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in five home starts. Lyles hasn't had as much success here. In 22 career appearances at Petco, he's got a poor 4.42 ERA. Lucchesi blanked the Bucs for five innings the only time he started against them. On the other hand, the last time that Lyles started against San Diego, he got crushed, losing 13-6. He gave up five earned runs in 3 1/3 innings. Consider San Diego.

MLB | Cubs vs Nationals
Play on: Cubs +144 at BetOnline

1 Unit FREE PLAY on Chicago Cubs +144

I’ll take a shot with the Chicago Cubs today as big road underdogs to the Washington Nationals. Cole Hamels has been outstanding since getting traded to the Cubs last season. He is 3-0 with a 3.08 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in eight starts this year. Hamels is 16-9 with a 2.67 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 37 previous starts against the Nationals. Max Scherzer has been off his game thus far this season, going 2-4 with a 3.64 ERA in nine starts. The Nationals are just 2-7 in his nine starts, and betters are down 9.1 units backing him. Hamels is 9-1 in his last 10 Friday starts. The Cubs are 6-1 in Hamels’ last seven starts. Chicago is 8-2 in its last 10 games off a loss. The Cubs are 20-7 in their last 27 games overall. The Nationals are 7-20 in their last 27 games off a win. Washington is 0-5 in Scherzer’s last five home starts. The Nationals are 0-6 in Scherzer’s last six Game 1 starts. Give me the Cubs.

MLB | Orioles vs Indians
Play on: Orioles +151 at YouWager

1* Free MLB Pick on Baltimore Orioles +151

We cashed in on the White Sox as a dog with Thursday's free pick and are ready to do it again with Baltimore on Friday. I'm not buying the recent offense surge for the Indians, who have been atrocious offensively all season. It was more of a result of the starters they were up against.

I look for Cleveland's offense to return to its poor form today. Baltimore's Dylan Bundy has a strong 3.64 ERA and 1.039 WHIP in his last 3 starts. He faced the Indians just once last season and was sharp, allowing just 1 run on 5 hits in 6 innings of a 3-1 home win.

That day he was up against the likes of Bauer, where today he's facing Indians' Jefry Rodriguez. Just so happens Rodriguez made one start against the Orioles in 2018 and he gave up 5 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings.

Indians are 3-8 in their last 11 after scoring 5 or more runs in their previous game. Take Baltimore!

Dave’s Friday Free Play:

1* on Los Angeles Dodgers -125

The Key: The Dodgers had yesterday off and will be fresh for Game 1 of this series with the Reds. Cincinnati just won two out of three from the rival Cubs in a series that was completed yesterday, so they didn’t get a day off. And the Reds are primed for a letdown after winning that series. Rich Hill is the better starter here over Anthony Desclafini. Hill is 4-3 with a 3.40 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 9 lifetime starts against the Reds. Desclafini is 1-4 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 5 lifetime starts against the Dodgers. I think we are getting the Dodgers at a cheap price tonight. Take Los Angeles.

MLB | Cardinals vs Rangers
Play on: Cardinals -135 at BetOnline

Jack’s Free Pick Friday: St. Louis Cardinals -135

The St. Louis Cardinals come into this game highly motivated for a victory. They have lost five of their last six overall, but they have only been outscored by seven runs during that six-game stretch. Look for them to get back on track here behind ace Miles Mikolas.

Mikolas was the Opening Day starter for the Cardinals. After getting off to a slow start, he has certainly turned things around of late. Mikolas is 2-1 with a 1.35 ERA and 0.750 WHIP in his last three starts to improve to 4-3 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.056 WHIP in nine starts this season.

Jose Leclerc will serve as an ‘opener’ for the Rangers before giving way to Adrian Sampson. Leclerc was the team’s closer, but he got demoted and now has a 6.32 ERA on the season. Samspon is 0-3 with a 5.25 ERA and 1.556 WHIP in five starts and four relief appearances. It’s safe to say the Rangers are in trouble on the mound today.

St. Louis is 21-6 in Mikolas’ last 27 starts. The Cardinals are 14-3 in Mikolas’ last 17 road starts. St. Louis is a perfect 9-0 in Mikolas’ last nine road starts vs. a team with a losing record. The Rangers are 0-6 in their last six home games following a road trip of seven or more days. Texas is 0-7 in its last seven Friday games. Bet the Cardinals Friday.

NHL | Sharks vs Blues
Play on: OVER 5½ -114

Take Over the Total in the game between the San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues. San Jose (56-34-7) took a 2-1 lead in this series on Wednesday with their 5-4 win in overtime in St. Louis against the Blues. The Sharks have played 5 of their last 6 games Over the Total after scoring at least five goals in their last game. The Over is also 12-3-2 in San Jose’s last 17 road games as an underdog priced in the +110 to +150 price range. St. Louis (54-35-9) has played 5 of their last 6 games Over the Total after a game where both teams scored at least four goals. The Over is also 3-0-1 in the Blues’ last four games in the playoffs when priced as a small favorite in the -110 to -150 price range. Take the Over. Best of luck — Frank.

Play on: UNDER 218 -110

The Game 1 total of 218 was 10 points too high and sportsbooks lowered it to 214. The public has not agreed and moved it up to 218. I'm going to agree with the oddsmakers as both teams have shot below their season shooting percentage in six of their last seven games. I'll say the oddsmakers are spot on at 214 and side with the UNDER.

MLB | Twins vs Mariners
Play on: Twins -107 at 5dimes

10* MLB FREE PICK (Twins -107)

I'll take my chances here with Minnesota at this price all day every day. Twins have one of the best records in the big leagues and are 8-3 in their last 11 games, which includes a 11-6 win in the series opener yesterday. Minnesota will send out arguably their best pitcher of 2019 in Martin Perez, who is 4-1 with a 2.13 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 6 starts.

Seattle was the talk of the league when they started the season 13-2. It's been all down hill since, as they are now 9-22 in their last 31. What was a potent offense has gone ice cold. Mariners are hitting .186 as a team and averaging just 3.6 runs over their last 7 games. Seattle's Marco Gonzales has great overall numbers, but is trending alongside the rest of his teammates. Mariners have lost his last 3 starts and he owns a 4.63 ERA and 1.628 WHIP in those outings. Give me the Twins -107!
