Here is the MLB Picks for Tuesday May 6, 2014.
Kansas City Royals at San Diego Padres
The Kansas City Royals and the San Diego Padres are not exactly premier baseball teams that are expected to do well this season. Because of this perception they are undervalued when it comes to the bookmakers. The Padres are a decent home team and they will send Robbie Erlin to the hill for this game. The southpaw has struggled a bit on the season but will be facing a Royals team that struggle with left handers posting just a .222 average up to this point in the young season. The Royals are 5-11 in their last 16 interleague games when they face a left-handed starter and the Padres are 10-4 in their last 14 interleague home games when they go up against a team with a losing record.
Free MLB Pick: San Diego Padres -110
San Francisco Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates
The San Francisco Giants are one of the early surprise teams in the National League as they are off to a red hot start. That start includes a sweep of the heavily favored Atlanta Braves and now they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Pirates. Charlie Morton take the mound against the Giants and he has struggled this season to get wins as the Bucs are just 0-4 when he pitches, but that will change for this game. Tim Hudson goes for the Giants and he has lost three of his last four starts against the Bucs. The Giants are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Pittsburgh and the Pirates get back on the winning track by taking down the hot Giants.

New York Mets at Miami Marlins
If you are looking for a team that is getting overlooked despite playing great baseball this season, look no further than the Miami Marlins. They may have a small payroll, but they have some great young talent. They dominate at home where they have won 14 of 19 games and will devour the Mets in this series. The Marlins are 9-1 in their last 10 home games when they play a team with a winning road record and the Mets are 2-5 in the last seven games played in Miami. Take the Marlins to win again when they take on the Mets.
