Sports handicapper Ian Cameron provides a look at MLB Overnight Betting Lines for the games taking place on Tuesday, July 19, and provides some exclusive free picks on two Moneyline tickets.

Milwaukee Brewers vs Pittsburgh Pirates
We have been cashing in betting on Junior Guerra on more than one occasion and he remains one of the most undervalued starting pitching commodities in the betting markets right now with Milwaukee is on a torrid 10-3 run in his 13 starts this season including 4-1 in his last 5 trips to the mound and 6-0 in Guerra's 6 road starts this season. Guerra has a solid 3.06 ERA this season and has allowed just 5 runs in his last 28 innings of work.

On the flip side, Jameson Taillon will return from the DL to make the start for Pittsburgh and it's hard to tell what to expect from him as he pitches for the first time since June 29th and he hasn't necessarily pitched dominantly here at home at PNC Park entering this contest with a 6.30 home ERA allowing 7 runs on 14 hits in 10 innings pitched. This is solid underdog value with Milwaukee in this game and easily their most consistent starter of late Junior Guerra. Brewers are my MLB Pick for this game.

Texas Rangers vs Los Angeles Angels
Kyle Lohse was inserted into the Texas Rangers rotation with Texas being in desperate times due to injuries to Yu Darvish, Colby Lewis, and Derek Holland in their rotation but much like Nick Martinez and Chi Chi Gonzalez before him, it sure didn't look like Lohse was deserving of being on a Major League starting rotation based on the results of his first start with Texas against Minnesota prior to the All-Star Break as he got battered for 6 runs on 9 hits in 5 innings of work and I'm not convinced he will fare much better here against a suddenly scorching hot LA Angels lineup which produced 16 runs in three games during their weekend series against the Chicago White Sox.

Opposing Lohse is Tim Lincecum for the LA Angels who is not looking all that much better than he did in his final days with the San Francisco Giants. Lincecum has been hit hard since joining the Angels rotation surrendering 17 runs in his last 17.2 innings over his last four starts and the Texas Rangers aren't likely to provide much relief for Lincecum as the Rangers have averaged nearly 5 runs scored per game this season. Both lineups have a potential to enjoy the upper hand in this matchup making the MLB Odds Over worthy of a wager in this one.
