Here is the MLB Picks for Wednesday, June 25th, 2014.
San Diego at San Francisco Giants
The talk is all about starting pitching and all about who has the best player on the hill, but there are a few other things to consider when handicapping. For example when the San Diego Padres go up against the San Francisco Giants it could be argued that the Padres are playing the better baseball right about now. The Giants have lost seven of the last nine overall and they are having trouble scoring runs. The Giants are 0-4 in their last 4 home games when they go up against a team with a losing record and the Giants are 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games with Marvin Hudson behind home plate. This all leads to a play on the Padres as a small underdog.

Chicago White Sox at Baltimore Orioles
While it could be argued that pitching is what moves the line, sometimes hot hitting and clutch play can rule the day. This is the case with the Baltimore Orioles who are now streaking back into contention in the American League East. They have won five out of six games and are hitting right handers at a .258 clip. The White Sox are 16-37 in their last 53 road games and Orioles are 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The home team is 11-4 in Paul Emmels last 15 games behind home plate and the Orioles keep winning as one of the hottest teams in Major League Baseball. Pricy spot, but it will be worth it when it wins.
Free MLB Pick: Baltimore Orioles -152
Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies
The Philadelphia Phillies have some decent pitching but there is no denying that they are a very bad baseball team. The Phillies are 4-10 in their last 14 games against the National League East and the 7-19 in their last 26 Wednesday games. That trend continues as the Marlins win as a small underdog.
