The Major League Baseball season will now be one of the marquee sports left to bet on with college basketball in the horizon. The NBA and NHL are leading up to the playoffs, so it is the action on the diamond that should get plenty of action from sports bettors. The season is long and for most folks who wager on sports it can be very difficult, but if played right it can be one of the most profitable sports to wager on all year long.
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 Wednesday April 9, 2014.
Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees
I just don’t feel right telling someone to take a team and drop over (-150) in chalk. When the pinstripes take on the Orioles they are listed as -172 favorites. This is not something I would suggest often, but in this case I am going to pay the juice. The Orioles stomped the Yankees in the Bronx today so this is a must win for the Bronx Bombers. The Orioles are 1-6 in their last 7 road games when they go up against a right-handed starter and Masahiro Tanaka will be eager to get his first victory in front of the home fans. He will be nervous early and should settle down for a big win as the Yankees win big.
Free Pick: New York Yankees -172
Milwaukee Brewers at Philadelphia Phillies
The Milwaukee Brewers are on a tear and are hot out of the gate. Ryan Braun already has a multi-homer game on his resume and the Brewers are doing everything right. The Brewers are 6-1 in their last 7 games when they play against a right-handed starter, 7-1 in their last 8 road games and 8-3 in the last 11 games overall. Baseball is the sport that you want to ride the streak and right now the Brewers are the hot team in baseball. Although they are still on a winning streak this price is nice and low and provides some value. Take the Brew Crew to win this game.
Free Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -125
Tampa Bay Rays at Kansas City Royals
You heard it here first. The Kansas City Royals are good enough to beat the Detroit Tigers and win their division. It will show in this game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Royals have the pitching and will get the run support in this game. The Royals are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home underdog and 19-7 in Jeremy Guthrie’s last 26 home starts. Take the Royals in this early afternoon game.
Free Pick: Kansas City Royals +100
