MLB Predictions


tommy hunterFree Pick: Texas -130 (4 units)

After yesterday’s win over Boston the Rangers currently hold a ½ game lead of the AL Wildcard race over the Boston Red Sox. They open a 4 game series tonight versus Minnesota. The Twins have struggled as of late, dropping 11 of their past 15 contests and have a poor road record of 23-34.

Jered WeaverFree Pick: LAA -1.5 (4 units)

The Angels send Jered Weaver (12-3, 3.67) to the mound. He will square off against rookie Chris Tillman (0-0, 5.19). L.A. will easily dominate because they have a solid pitching and batting advantage.

Andy PettitteFree Pick: NYY -1.5 (4 units)

Yankees will win this one in dominant fashion. This is a matchup featuring two lefties, Andy Pettitte (9-6, 4.14) and Ryan Rowland Smith (2-1, 3.86).

Jason HammelFree Pick: Over 8 (5 units)

There is a substantial amount of value of playing the OVER in this one for several reasons. The Rockies and the Marlins have been rolling offensively as of late.

Vincente PadillaFree Pick: Under 10 -120 (4 units)

There is a substantial amount of value playing the UNDER in this matchup. The total at 9.5 or 10 is inflated. Detroit sends rookie lefty Lucas French (1-1, 2.22) to the mound. He has been faring rather well recently with an ERA of only 2.17 in his last 3 starts. This works in our favour since UNDER is 8-2 in Texas’ last 10 home games versus left handed pitchers.

Jair JurrjensFree Pick: Atlanta -112 (3 units)

This will be an exciting divisional matchup featuring two teams who are tied for 2nd place in the NL East. The Marlins have been hot as of late winning 5 of their last 6. The Braves have been just as impressive winning 6 of their last 8. I like the Braves as a small favourite in this one for a few reasons.

jake peavyFree Pick: San Diego Moneyline

Lately, it seems like the Arizona Diamondbacks have been the perfect team to cure all ills for opposing pitchers. Just ask Barry Zito, who spun a gem against the Snakes a few weeks back, or Manny Parra, who dusted through their lineup last week. On Wednesday, the Diamondbacks will face off against a guy who has been one of the most dominant pitchers in the National League during the last few seasons.

randy wolfFree Pick: Los Angeles Moneyline

Dodger Stadium has been kind to the home team in 2009, with the boys in blue winning each of their first 11 home games. There seems to be a certain comfort level there for both Dodger hitters and pitchers, who have allowed just under 2 runs per game at home this season. On Thursday, the Dodgers will take on the Washington Nationals and rookie Jordan Zimmermann, who gets to experience his first cross-country road trip as a professional.

matt garzaFree Pick: Tampa Bay Moneyline

The Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox have developed a nice little rivalry over the last couple of years, and some might find it hard to believe that Tampa has actually had Boston’s number a little bit during that time. On Thursday, they will go at it again, with a matchup of two pretty good pitchers.

Zach Greinke Free Pick: Kansas City Moneyline

We rode the Zach Greinke train to a win last week and I see no reason why we should hop off at this point. The young right hander has truly been the best pitcher in the Major Leagues in 2009, and it’s not even really close. The big news in his complete game win over the White Sox last week was the he finally gave up a run. Should we be surprised, though, that the run was unearned? Greinke has now pitched 41 consecutive innings without surrendering an earned run, a streak that dates back to his last two starts of 2008.

Erik BedardFree Pick: Seattle Moneyline

Quietly and without much notice Seattle’s Eric Bedard has become his old self again. Sure, he might break down later in the year, but we are just trying to win some money for right now. Through 26 innings this year, Bedard has 29 strikeouts, a sign that shows that his good stuff might just be back. Bedard’s resurgence has everything to do with the improvements that he has made on his fastball, getting the velocity back up into the high-90s where it used to be. In addition, the left hander worked hard on his curveball during spring training, and that is paying dividends.

Yovani GallardoFree Pick: Milwaukee Moneyline

When the Pirates roll into Miller Park to take on the Milwaukee Brewers, the pitching matchup will be one of the most interesting of this week in baseball. The Pirates have come up with some strong pitching performances in the first month of the season, and a couple of those are the work of right hander Ian Snell. Snell flashed brilliance in 2007, but came crashing down to earth in 2008. He has good stuff, with a mid-90s fastball and good slider, but Snell’s bugaboo has been control in the last couple of years. After going seven scoreless innings against Atlanta two starts ago, Snell was roughed up in San Diego of all places last time out.
