Here is the MLB Picks for Tuesday, June 24th, 2014.
Chicago White Sox at Baltimore Orioles
When two American League teams meet up the instinct may lead a handicapper to vet on a high scoring game, but this game should be the polar opposite. Surprisingly enough the series has been a big win for low scoring games as the under is 23-9-1 in the last 33 meetings. The under is 13-5-1 in White Sox last 19 games when they go up against a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30 and that is what they get when they go up against Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez. The under has cashed in two of his last three starts overall and in his last outing against the White Sox. Look for another low scoring game as this one goes under the total.
Free MLB Pick: Chicago White Sox / Baltimore Orioles Under 8.5 +100
Detroit Tigers at Texas Rangers
The Detroit Tigers and the Texas Rangers have very good offenses but they have struggled to get good outings from their starting pitchers. It has been so bad for the Tigers that the over is 23-9-1 in Tigers last 33 overall. These numbers jump against a team with a losing record as the over is 14-4-1 in Tigers last 19 when facing a team with a losing record and 7-2 when those games were on the road. The Rangers play in an over ballpark as the over is 7-2 in Rangers last 9 home games and 15-7-2 in the last 24 meetings that have taken place in the lone star state. Take this game to go over.
Free MLB Pick: Detroit Tigers / Texas Rangers Over 9.5
Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies
Sometimes betting totals is obvious. Two teams face off with bad offenses so that leads to low scoring games. The under is 3-1-1 in Marlins last 5 overall and the Phillies offense has been sputtering all season. Not much legwork in this play. Look for a low scoring game as this one goes under the total.
Free MLB Pick: Miami Marlins / Philadelphia Phillies Under 8 +100
