Here is the MLB Picks for Tuesday April 16, 2014.
St. Louis Cardinals at Milwaukee Brewers
The Milwaukee Brewers are off to a hot start but they have not played against a team like the Saint Louis Cardinals. The Cards are the cream of the crop in the National League for a reason. So when I get a chance to take this team as a live underdog I am going to jump on it. Joe Kelly gets the start for the Redbirds and he has only allowed 1 earned run in 11 innings pitched. The Cardinals are 9-2 in Kelly’s last 11 starts when going up against a team with a winning record and 12-5 in Kelly’s last 17 starts overall. Anytime you get a good pitcher and a good team at a good price you have to take them.
Free Pick: Cardinals +110
Toronto Blue Jays at Minnesota Twins
I believe it is safe to say that the R.A Dickey experiment is over. The Blue Jays dumped big money to lure Dickey away from the Mets but they have not gotten their money’s worth. The Blue Jays are 1-4 in Dickeys last 5 road starts and they are 1-4 in Dickeys last 5 starts as a road favorite. The Jays have never done well as a road favorite as they are just 2-8 in the last ten overall. This is more of an umpire play as well as Chris Guccione is behind the plate and the Home team is 4-0 in Gucciones last 4 games behind home plate in a game against Toronto. The Twins have a good team who are playing hard early in the season and they get the win as a live underdog in this game.
Free Pick: Twins +125
Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres
If you follow these picks on a regular basis (and you should) now is the time to pay attention. The Padres have a pitcher named Andrew Cashner. This guy is the real deal. He has given up three earned runs in three starts this season which includes a complete game shutout against the heavy hitting Detroit Tigers. This line is low considering that this guy will be a Cy Young candidate at the end of the season. Get the value now.
Free Pick: Padres -150
