MLB Pick of the Day Record: 20-20 -361
GAME: Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees
DATE/TIME: Saturday, June 28, 2014 7:15 PM EST
WHERE: Yankee Stadium, Bronx NY
Pitching Matchup: Red Sox- Jon Lester (L) vs Yankees - Masahiro Tanaka (R)
LATEST ODDS: New York -148 Total 7.5
The Boston Red Sox are playing .500 ball in their last 10 matchups, but have lost 5 of their last 7 on the road. Meanwhile the New York Yankees have lost 4 out of their last 5. However, when it comes to this kind of a game when you have 2 premiere Pitchers in baseball; you can toss every statistic out of the window.
The Red Sox got to Tanaka when they first met April 22nd when they tagged him for 7 hits along with 2 runs. The second time facing Tanaka should be a touch easier to read and with more discipline they should be a little more productive. While the Yankees are only 6 and 12 versus Lester and are 4-9 in their last 13 home games vs. a team with a losing record.
MLB Pick: Boston +135 Under 7.5
GAME: Cincinnati Reds at San Francisco Giants
DATE/TIME: Saturday, June 28 - 10:05 PM EST
WHERE: AT&T Park, San Francisco, California

LATEST ODDS: San Francisco -113 Total 7
The Cincinnati Reds have been victorious 7 of their last 10 matchups and 10 of their last 14 games and 16 of their last 25 encounters which correlates to a .640 winning percentage.
Talk about a “giant” nose dive, ever since June 9th, the San Francisco Giants own a Major League Baseball worst 3 and 12 record and their 9.5 game lead over the Dodgers has been cut down to 3.0 games during that period of time. They have gone just 2-8 in their last 10 encounters versus sub-par .500 teams: Colorado, Chicago-AL, Arizona and San Diego.
MLB Pick: Cincinnati +103
