Here is the MLB Picks for Tuesday May 27, 2014.
Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue Jays
With the Boston Red Sox fading in the American League East, other teams are scrambling to take over the top spot. Two of those teams meet up on Tuesday when the Tampa Bay Rays battle with the Toronto Blue Jays. Not many baseball experts are taking the Blue Jays seriously, but they should. The Blue Jays are 4-0 in their last 4 home games and they are 16-5 in the last 21 games overall. That makes the Jays a serious value play in this game against the Rays. The Jays continue their early season improbable run with a win over the Rays.
Free MLB Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -110
Detroit Tigers at Oakland Athletics
Seemingly every year the A’s find a way to have a winning team despite the fact that they don’t have any big name marquee players. The pitcher that takes the hill on Tuesday night will be a star in this league; people just don’t know it yet. Sonny Gray is an excellent pitcher and that is why he is a -125 favorite over the Tigers and Cy young award winner Max Scherzer. Gray has sick numbers to include a 5-1 overall record, and an ERA under 2.00 on the season. The Tigers are 1-4 in their last 5 games against the American League West and have dropped six of the last seven games overall. The Athletics are 6-1 in Grays last 7 starts following a team loss in their previous game and the A’s will beat down the Tigers.
Free MLB Pick: Oakland A’s -125
Cincinnati Reds at LA Dodgers
The Dodgers have a quality team, but for some reason they cannot seem to win at home as they are just 9-13 on the season. The Reds have got a very good season out of starting pitcher Alfredo Simon this year. He is a perfect 5-0 on the road this year and will go up against the Dodgers in this game. The Dodgers are 3-7 in their last 10 games when they go up against a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15 and they are overpriced in this outing. Get the plus money on the Reds in this game.
Free MLB Pick: Cincinnati Reds +135
