Here is the MLB Picks for Wednesday July 30th, 2014.
LA Angels at Baltimore Orioles
The series between the LA Angles and the Baltimore Orioles might as well be a playoff series as both teams need to keep pace with the teams that surround them in the standings. The Angles are road favorites in this team for good reason. Garrett Richards has been a stud especially on the road where he is 6-1 on the season. He also has a tiny ERA of just 2.14 in his last three starts and has been untouchable for the halos. The Angels are 23-7 in Richards' last 30 starts as a favorite and 7-3 in their last 10 games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Play the road team in this big game.
Free MLB Pick: LA Angels -135
New York Yankees at Texas Rangers
Although it is the New York Yankees that are fighting for the playoffs and the Texas Rangers playing out the string, the pinstripes are in trouble here. The Yankees are 1-5 in Hiroki Kurodas last 6 starts as a road favorite of -110 to -150 and so his recent stats may be a bit misleading. Ed Hickox is behind the plate and the Rangers have fared well at home when he is calling balls and strikes behind the dish. The Rangers have won five of the last six when he calls a game in Texas and they will get another win as a big underdog against the Yankees.
Free MLB Pick: Texas Rangers +136
Seattle Mariners at Cleveland Indians
When the Mariners have Felix Hernandez on the hill they are always a good bet, but Cleveland has an ace of their own. Corey Kluber is having a fantastic season for the tribe as evident by the 10-6 record which includes a 5-2 home record. The Mariners are 1-4 in their last 5 games when they go up against a right-handed starter and the struggle as a chalk failing to cover five of the last six games as a favorite. The Indians are 9-2 in Klubers last 11 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance and they get another good outing and a win against King Felix.
Free MLB Pick: Cleveland Indians +105
