Here are the Free MLB Picks for Saturday August 30th
Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
The Reds and the Pirates had high expectations on the season and they are falling short as the season winds down. The Reds have had trouble finding consistency all season long but the one constant has been starting pitcher Alfredo Simon. He is 1-1 in his last three games with an ERA of 1.50. He is 7-4 on the road this season and the Reds have won his last two starts against the Bucs. The Reds are 8-1 in Simons last 9 starts when he takes the hill against the National League Central, 7-2 in the last 9 meetings overall and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Pittsburgh. The Reds continue that dominance with a win against the Pirates.
Free Pick: Cincinnati Reds +110
Miami Marlins at Atlanta Braves
When you bet on a game featuring the Miami Marlins and the Atlanta Braves it is hard to imagine a high scoring game. Another low scoring game should be on tap for this game as the Marlins send Jarred Cosart to the hill and he has been lights out in his last three games. With a tiny ERA of 0.87 he will be hard to hit when the Braves step to the plate. In fact the under is 3-0-1 in Cosarts last 4 starts overall. This series is also a low scoring affair according to history. The under is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings overall and 5-1-2 in the last 8 meetings in Atlanta.
Free Pick: Miami Marlins at Atlanta Braves Under 7 +100
Colorado Rockies at Arizona Diamondbacks
The Rockies and the Diamondbacks are just playing out the string so don’t look for a defensive effort by either team down the stretch. Both pitchers are suspect led by Tyler Matzek who starts for the Rockies and he is 1-5 in his last six starts away from home. This matchup has yielded overs on a regular basis over the years. The Over is 13-4-1 in the last 18 meetings overall and 7-1-1 in the last 9 meetings in Arizona. This game soars over the total in a high scoring affair.
Free Pick: Colorado Rockies at Arizona Diamondbacks Over 8.5 -105
