Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday August 2nd
New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox
The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox are a part of the best rivalry in baseball and maybe all of sports. The Red Sox are out of the playoffs and have sold off their best players before the trading deadline but don’t write them off just yet. Allen Webster is getting a chance to nab a spot in the rotation and has looked decent in his chances which is why the Sox felt comfortable trading Lester. The Yankees are 2-9 in their last 11 games against a team from the American League East and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. The Red Sox are 4-1 in Webster’s last 5 starts and they get a big win at home against their rivals.
Free Pick: Boston Red Sox -110
San Francisco Giants at New York Mets
The San Francisco Giants needed some pitching and they traded for Jake Peavy. The problem is that Peavy has not been pitching well. The Mets starter, Jacob deGrom has been pitching well. He is 3-0 in his last three outings and he has posted a low ER of .089. The Mets are 4-0 in their last 4 home games when going against a right-handed starter and 5-0 in the last five games at home as a favorite. The Mets are a favorite in this game for a reason, they will win.
Free Pick: New York Mets -140
Pittsburgh Pirates at Arizona Diamondbacks
Sometimes a team can be discouraged when nothing happens at the trade deadline. The Pirates sat back and passed on everyone while the Cardinals were stocking up on talent. The Pirates are 1-4 in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 1-5 in their last 6 road games when playing a team with a losing home record. The Bucs come in with their heads hanging and lose this game to Arizona.
Free Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks +105v
