We browse the early odds board in search of MLB betting value on Sunday's games. Read on and find two picks to maximize your profits at the end of the week.

Rays vs. Yankees

Right-hander Jacob Faria (5-1, 2.67 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) takes the hill for the Rays after a decent performance against the Orioles on Tuesday, when he gave up three earned runs on seven hits (one home run) and two walks with five strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings of a 5-4 win. This will be Faria's first career start against the Yankees but he's 2-1 with a decent 2.56 ERA in five road starts.

Jordan Montgomery (7-5, 3.92 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) will get the ball for the Yankees after dominating the Reds on Tuesday, when he allowed just one earned run on two hits with one walk and six strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings of a 4-2 win. Montgomery has given up three earned runs or less in eight of his last 10 starts and he should have a great pitching duel with Faria, so I'm looking at Under 9 at -123 MLB odds.

Free MLB Pick: Under 9 (-123)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

Twins vs. Athletics

Bartolo Colon (2-9, 8.00 ERA, 1.78 WHIP) will make his third start for the Twins. He got a no-decision against the Dodgers last Tuesday, when he gave three earned runs on eight hits (two home runs) and zero walks with two strikeouts over five innings. Colon is now 0-1 with a 7.00 ERA in two starts with the Twins and he's just 1-5 with a 7.77 ERA in nine road starts. 

Sonny Gray (6-5, 3.43 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) will make his 17th start for the Athletics after allowing four runs (all unearned) on five hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over six innings of 4-1 loss against the Blue Jays last Tuesday. Gray has made six straight quality starts, going 4-2 with a 1.37 ERA and a 4.00 strikeout-to-walk ratio (K/BB) in 39 1/3 innings over that stretch. Colon is one of my favorite pitchers of all-time but I just can't trust him right now and Gray has been very consistent as of late, so I'm taking the Athletics -195 with my MLB picks.

Free MLB Pick: Athletics -195
Best Line Offered: at The Greek
