Never stop learning. That is the most common bit of advice that I have gotten from the professional handicappers that I have talked to about betting on baseball. The sport stays the same, but there are endless amount of things to investigate before placing a bet. The baseball betting headquarters at Bangthebook.com is the most comprehensive section for baseball bettors to frequent to get the most up to date information. This section provides a bounty of information that can point out winners and put money in your pocket this summer.
Make sure to check back on a regular basis as we will post our MLB Picks of the Day!
Here is the MLB Picks for Saturday, June 21st, 2014.
Boston Red Sox at Oakland Athletics
The Oakland A’s are proving to be one of the best teams in Major League Baseball. The Red Sox may be the defending champs but an offensive year long slump at the plate has kept them buried in the very busy American League East. One bright spot for the Sox is youngster Rubby De La Rosa. He is off his best start of the season, going seven strong and allowing just one hit. He has adjusted quite nicely at the Major League level and is a steal at this price. Take the Sox to get the win on the road behind this young superstar.
Free MLB Pick: Boston Red Sox +130
Pittsburgh Pirates at Chicago Cubs
The Pittsburgh Pirates may be the better team, but the Chicago Cubs are a tougher team to beat at home. Travis Wood goes for the Cubs and he has allowed 3 earned runs or less in his last eight straight starts against the Bucs. The Cubs are 5-0 in Woods last 5 starts when going against a team with a losing record, 4-0 in his last four home starts and 6-1 in Woods last 7 starts overall. The Pirates are 132-275 in their last 407 road games when going up against a team with a winning home record and they will take down the Pirates in this game.
Free MLB Pick: Chicago Cubs -110
New York Mets at Miami Marlins
When the Mets and the Marlins take the field expect plenty of runs. Both starting pitchers have ERA’s over six runs per contest in the last three outings. The over is 15-5-2 in Marlins last 22 when they go up against a team with a losing record and 9-4-1 in Marlins last 14 overall. Ron Kulpa is the umpire working the game and the over is 6-2 in Kulpas last 8 games behind home plate when he works a game featuring the New York Mets. This game goes over the total.
