Here are the Free MLB Picks for Tuesday August 26th
Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox are mired in the middle of a losing streak and things don’t look to get any better against the Cleveland Indians. The Indians are still within striking distance of the Wild Card and they have some nice value in this game. Jose Quintana goes for the White Sox and he has pitched well but he does struggle at home as he is just 1-3 in his last four starts in front of the home faithful. The Indians are 4-1 in their last 5 games against a left-handed starter, 4-1 in their last 5 games following an off day and 4-1 in the last five road games. The White Sox are 9-26 in Quintana’s last 35 starts after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game, 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 1-5 in Quintana’s last 6 home starts. The Indians are the better team and they are more interested in playing baseball down the stretch.
Free Pick: Cleveland Indians +105
Atlanta Braves at New York Mets
The New York Mets love to beat the Atlanta Braves. Although the Mets are out of the playoff race, they love to beat up this team that has haunted them for decades. The Braves are in the middle of a long road trip and it will get to them in this series against the Mets. Dillon Gee is pitching for the Mets and he has had some success against the Braves in the past. He has won two straight against the Braves only allowing two earned runs in his last three starts. He gets another win as the tired Braves fall again.
Free Pick: New York Mets +120
New York Yankees at Detroit Tigers
When the pinstripes and the Tigers meet up there is a slugfest on deck. The Tigers are sting to hit the ball better and the over has cashed in seven of the last ten games. It does not matter if the Tigers are facing a quality pitcher. The over is 34-16-3 in Tigers last 53 games when going against a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. Look for another high scoring outing as the Tigers could eclipse this number on their own.
Free Pick: New York Yankees at Detroit Tigers Over 8.5 +100
