Here is the MLB Picks for Wednesday May 21, 2014.
Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians
One of the best things about Wednesday Major League Baseball is that the schedule is always loaded with afternoon games to pass the day away. The game between the Detroit Tigers and the Cleveland Indians is sure to provide a great pitching duel. Max Scherzer is an absolute beast and is having another monster season. He has a knack for shutting down opponents. The under is 20-7-2 in Scherzers last 29 road starts and 9-3 in Tigers last 12 overall. The under is 4-1 in Tim Timmons' last 5 games behind home plate and with an under umpire and two solid pitchers taking the mound, points to a very low scoring game.
Free Pick: Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians Under 7.5 -125
Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox
On Tuesday night I took the under in this game and cited that the offense for the Red Sox is sputtering and if they face a decent pitcher, it will lead to more unders until they sign or trade for a bat. That won’t change by Wednesday night. It also helps that the Red Sox have a good pitcher going in this outing as well. Clay Buchholz is starting for the Sox and although he has been inconsistent, he has done well against the Jays. The Under is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams and the under is 4-1 in Buchholzs last 5 home starts against the Blue Jays. Look for another low scoring game and another under for the Red Sox.
Free Pick: Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox Under 9 -120
Cincinnati Reds vs. Washington Nationals
This is the part of the article, where I find a good dog for the day and in this game it is the Reds. Alfredo Simon has been a very good acquisition for the Reds and he is a perfect 4-0 on the road this season with an ERA under 1.00. The Reds are 7-0 in their last 7 games with Alan Porter behind home plate and the road team is a perfect 6-0 when he is behind the plate in Nationals games. Reds get the upset in game three of this series.
Free Pick: Cincinnati Reds +125
