Friday MLB Free play. My selection is on the 'under' between Arizona and San Diego at 10:10 pm et on Friday.

I'll back the 'under' at Petco Park on Friday night.

Robbie Ray will take the ball for the D'Backs. He has worked at least into the sixth inning in five of his last six starts. Last time out he labored through five innings but still only gave up two earned runs in a hitter's park in Cincinnati. Note that he has posted a 2.70 ERA in 40 innings pitched on the road this season.

Joey Lucchesi will counter for the Padres. He has worked at least into the sixth inning in back-to-back starts, allowing just two earned runs in 11 2/3 innings of work. The 'over' has cashed in his last three outings but that only serves to give us additional value with the 'under' here as Lucchesi is undoubtedly pitching well right now.

Neither of these clubs are tearing the cover off the baseball right now. In a pitcher's park with two quality starts on the hill, I'm anticipating a relatively low-scoring affair. Take the under (8*).

MLB | Brewers vs Cardinals
Play on: Cardinals -125 at betonline

FREDDY PERALTA (R) vs. JACK FLAHERTY (R)

Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty is currently in good form with his team winning his L2 starts allowing two runs in his last 13 innings of stable work. He has also dominated Milwaukee in two starts this season, allowing just two runs in 12 innings while striking out 22 batters . The Brewers are hitting a combined .130 with only two extra-base hits vs Flaherty . With the Cards bats on fire propelling them to wins in eight of their last nine games the home team looks like a viable pick, vs a Brewers rookie pitcher in Peralta that is on the verge of being demoted to the minors after giving up 7 runs last time out and for the 2nd time in his L/4 trips to the hill. The kids throwing beach balls right now and is fade material in his current form.

Cardinals are 7-1 in their last 8 games vs. a right-handed starter.Brewers are 1-8 in their last 9 vs. National League .Cards are 13-3 in their last 16 games following a loss.Cardinals are 4-1 in Flahertys last 5 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance.

MLB | Tigers vs Twins
Play on: Twins -165 at betonline

My free play is on the Min Twins at 8:10 ET. The Twins won their third straight game in beating the Tigers 15-8 last night, while the Tigers have now allowed 27 runs in losing three in a row. Minnesota made a surprise run to the wild-card game a year ago (finished 85-77 before losing to the Yankees) but the team's 2018 season went south early on this year. The 57-63 Twins are 12 games back of first-place Cleveland in the AL Central and even further back in the wild card race, at 14 1/2 games back. As for the 50-72 Tigers, the team's .410 winning percentage has them on pace to win 66 games (Detroit won 64 games in 2017).

Detroit lefty Matthew Boyd (7-10, 4.20 ERA) just defeated the Twins this past Sunday, when he gave up one run on two hits over six innings at Detroit in a 4-2 win. Boyd takes the mound tonight having won three of his last four overall starts, following a five-game losing streak. He is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in three starts against Minnesota this season (Tigers are 2-1) and 6-3 with a 3.79 ERA in 14 career outings. Minnesota's Kyle Gibson (6-9, 3.49 ERA) beat the Tigers last Saturday, allowing one run on seven hits in seven innings of a 4-3 victory. Gibson is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA in two starts against Detroit this year but stands 7-8 with a shaky 5.22 ERA in 18 career outings against the Tigers.

Both starters come in pitching pretty well. Gibson is 4-3 in his last eight starts (Twins are 4-4) with a 3.51 ERA over that span, while Boyd owns a 2.37 ERA over five starts (3-2) since the All-Star break. However, the bottom line is that Detroit owns a better road record (18-42) than only Baltimore, while Minnesota is a solid 36-24 at home. Play the Twins.

Good luck...Larry

DMack's Free Play for Friday, August 17, 2018 is on the St Louis Cardinals (Flaherty Listed)

The Brewers continue to fade at 2-5 L7 while the Cardinals are 7-1 L8 and have a huge edge on the mound here tonight. Freddy Peralta has been terrible allowing 12 hits and 11 walks in his l13 innings (6.91) of work. Jack Flaherty is 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA in his last two. The Cardinal righty has faced the Brewers twice in 2018 and allowed just one earned run in each start. Take the Cards.

MLB | Royals vs White Sox
Play on: Royals +122 at 5Dimes

1* Free Pick on Kansas City Royals +122

Two of the AL's worst teams will square off, as the Royals visit the White Sox in Friday's series opener at Chicago. I'll take the dog in this fight, as Kansas City will send out the red-hot Jake Junis. In his last two starts, Junis has limited the Cubs and Cardinals to just 2 runs on 8 hits with 16 strikeouts in 11 innings of work.

Backing the Royals on the Road with Junis on the mound against a bad team has been a very profitable bet of late. KC is 6-1 in Junis' last 7 starts away from home against a team with a losing record. The Royals are also 13-5 in his last 18 starts when they are listed anywhere from +125 to -125 on the money line.

Chicago will counter with veteran James Shields, who is coming off a strong out at home against the Indians, but the White Sox are a mere 5-21 in Shields last 26 starts when he's off a Quality Start in his last outing. Shields is also a mere 3-12 in the second half of the season against bad teams who are getting outscored by 1 or more runs/game. Take Kansas City!

Play on: Mariners +115 at betonline

Jack’s Free Pick Friday: Seattle Mariners +115

I like the value we are getting with the Seattle Mariners are home underdogs to the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight. The Dodgers are just 1-5 in their last six games overall and should not be favored here. They have failed to score more than 4 runs in 11 of their last 12 games as their offense is sputtering.

Seattle southpaw Wade LeBlanc should be able to shut down the Dodgers tonight. He is 6-1 with a 3.12 ERA and 0.971 WHIP in 10 home starts this season. The Dodgers are only hitting .231 and scoring 3.8 runs per game against left-handed starters this year.

Walker Buehler has been much better at home than he has been on the road for the Dodgers this season. He is 2-1 with a 4.13 ERA and 1.286 WHIP in six road starts this year. This is a big spot for the rookie late in the season tonight.

The Mariners are a ridiculous 15-1 in LeBlanc’s last 16 home starts. Seattle is 21-7 in its last 28 home games vs. a right-handed starter. The Dodgers are 11-23 in their last 34 interleague road games vs. a left-handed starter. Bet the Mariners Friday.

Play on: Giants +3 +105 at betonline

Take the NY Giants plus the points versus the Detroit Lions. New York (0-1) looks to rebound from a 20-10 upset loss to Cleveland at home as a 1-point favorite last Thursday in their opening preseason game. The Giants have bounced-back to cover the point spread in 12 of their last 20 preseason games after a double-digit loss. New York has also covered the point spread in 5 of their last 9 preseason games with the Total set in the 38.5 to 42 point range. Detroit (0-1) has failed to cover the point spread in 14 of their last 22 preseason games as a home favorite laying no more than 3 points. The Lions have also failed to cover the point spread in 9 of their last 13 preseason games against fellow NFC opponents. Take the NY Giants plus the points. Best of luck — Frank.

Play on: Reds -113 at GTBets

10* FREE MLB PICK (Reds -113)

I'll take my chances here with Cincinnati as a small home favorite against the Giants in Friday's series opener. San Francisco had originally planned on sending out rookie Dereck Rodriguez to start the opener, but he's on the DL after pulling his hamstring in Tuesday's bench clearing brawl against the Dodgers. Instead the Giants will turn to Casey Kelly, who hasn't started in the majors since 2016 and has not been sharp in the minors, posting a 4.78 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. Add in the fact that this game is being played at hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park and it could get real ugly here for Kelly. Cincinnati on the other hand will send out Anthony Desclafani, who has been really impressive in his last two starts. He first held the Nationals to just 1 run on 6 hits in 7 innings at Washington and then held the Diamondbacks to just 3 hits over 7 shutout innings at home. I like his chances of piling on another strong start. Give me the Reds -113!

Friday's comp play is the Blue Jays and the Yankees to hold Under the total.

Right now the New York Yankees couldn't hit water if they fell out of a boat!

New York has scored just 2 runs in their last 18 innings of play. On Thursday they had the bases loaded with nobody out in the bottom of the 9th of a 3-1 game, and they went foul-out, strikeout, strikeout as they stayed Under the total for the 3rd straight game. They are on a 5-1-1 Under run now their last 7 games in the books.

Toronto played at Kansas City last night and held Under the total, as the Blue Jays have now played 5 of their last 7 games Under the posted price.

It will be Marcus Stroman and Lance Lynn taking the mound.

Stroman's last start saw him work 5 innings of one run ball before leaving the mound with a blister on his pitching hand.

Lynn has been a real find since coming over to the Yanks, as he has worked close to 17 innings for the Yanks with a 0.54 ERA, striking out 22 batters along the way.

5 of the last 6 series meetings between these A.L. East rivals have landed Under the total, and this weekend opener does too.

3* TORONTO-N.Y. YANKEES UNDER

My free play for tonight is on the Over in the Angels-Rangers game, in Arlington, as I think the offenses go off on the starting pitchers.

MAKE NOTE: All Run Line/Total plays automatically list pitchers with the starters who are scheduled to go at the time of the wager, and I want you to be sure the following pitchers are the starters of record on your ticket when making your play: Odrisamer Despaigne and Drew Hutchinson. If one or both of these pitchers is not going, this is a no-play.

Let's start with Despaigne, who was acquired from the Miami Marlins on Tuesday and makes his Angels debut and his first start in the Majors since March 31. The fact he is likely be limited to a range of 75-80 pitches tells me the team is not sure what to expect. Despaigne will be the 14th pitcher to start for the Angels this season, and he may get the hook quickly against a potent lineup that is hitting .261 and has outscored opponents by six runs over its last 10 games.

With Hutchison, he is making his third start for Texas since being signed as a free agent. He just faced the Yankees on Saturday and allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings. It was a step up from his previous start against the Orioles, who tapped him for six runs over three innings. Now he catches an Angels team that is heating up, having won seven of 10 behind a furious offense that is hitting .278 and outscoring foes by 15 runs in that same span.

Play this one high.

3* OVER Angels-Rangers (Despaigne and Hutchinson)

Let's head to the Twin Cities for tonight's free play, as I like the Minnesota Twins on the Run Line over the Detroit Tigers.

Though pitchers are automatically listed when making Run Line wagers, I am insisting you DO NOT worry about who the scheduled starters are. In the event of a scratch, you MUST re-wager the game with the new pitcher(s) who are scheduled. This play will stand no matter who pitches for either team.

The Twins are in second place in the American League Central, sitting 12 games back of the Cleveland Indians. It's a long shot, unless the Indians collapse, but the Twins have their best chances at home, where they're 36-24 this season.

The Tigers have dropped three in a row, and seven of 10. Detroit's pitching staff has been horrendous during the 10-game slump, with a 5.76 ERA. The Tigers have also been outscored by a whopping 20 runs in that span.

I'll bank on Eddie Rosario to lead the charge, as he is hitting .295 with 141 hits and 20 home runs in 118 games this year for the Twins. Lately, Jorge Polanco has been hot with 12 hits and a .300 batting average over his past 10 games.

Take Minnesota in a rout.

2* TWINS RUN LINE

Tonight another winner, just that simple.

Your Friday freebie is the Saints minus the points over the Cardinals.

The schedule is not in favor of the Cardinals as they get set to kick-off in their second preseason game of this month. Arizona was a 24-17 winning at home against the Los Angeles Chargers, but they played that game on Saturday night. Conversely, New Orleans opened on the road last Thursday with a 24-20 win at Jacksonville.

Drew Brees may not get much time in this game, but the Saints did get some solid preseason quarterback play from both Tom Savage and Taysom Hill last week, as Sean Payton upped his preseason mark to a money-turning 3-1 against the spread in their last 4 "practice" games.

Arizona will continue to work in prized rookie Josh Rosen, but he best beware as the Saints defense did sack Jacksonville's quarterbacks 6 times in last week's victory.

RB - Mark Ingram is suspended for the first 4 games of the season for New Orleans, but he is available to play in the preseason, and did get 7 carries in last week's game, while scoring a touchdown. I would expect him to get a few more touches tonight. Also look for Johnathan Williams to see action in the backfield as the Saints look for a partner for Alvin Kamara while Ingram is sidelined to open the regular season.

Schedule favors the Saints heavily tonight, and the fact they are playing this one at home also favors New Orleans.

Lay the preseason wood with New Orleans.

4* NEW ORLEANS
