We have reviewed the MLB odds and locked in on our juiciest MLB totals for Tuesday evening. Let’s sweep the board in our MLB picks tonight!

Marlins (3-4 O/U) vs. Braves (4-3 O/U)
The key to this game is Marlins’ starting pitcher Tom Koehler. The 28-year-old New York native pitched six strong innings in his season debut against Atlanta last week and came up on the short end of a 2-0 defeat. However, when we analyze his career outings against the Bravos we find that the ‘under’ has cashed in five of six occurrences (+3.9 units) while three of four games have already gone under this season. If you want to go way back you will find that these two clubs traditionally play tight, low scoring baseball as evidenced by the under in MLB odds cashing at a 34-16-7 clip.

Atlanta sends former Diamondback Trevor Cahill to the bump for his 2015 debut, and that my friends, is the only fly in this ointment. Cahill logged a 3-12 record and a 5.61 ERA in 26 appearances last season. His last start came in September of last year where he pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed four runs on six hits in a 7-6 loss to the Cardinals. Fortunately the Marlins, aside from one game this season, have not been lighting it up and we expect their hitting drought to continue in Atlanta tonight.

MLB Pick: Under 7 ½ (-120) at 5Dimes

 

White Sox (4-2 O/U) vs. Indians (3-3 O/U)
Cleveland’s Carlos Carasco looked like Pedro Martinez in his last outing as he struck out 10 and held the Astros to only three hits and no runs en route to a 2-0 victory last Wednesday. Today he will be getting the assignment to stop a White Sox lineup that is starting to gain traction. After dropping their first four and generating little offense, Chicago won their last two games against Minnesota by scores of 5-4 and 6-2.

The White Sox hope that Jose Quintana can reverse course after a disappointing debut in which he surrendered five earned runs on nine hits through the course of five innings of lackluster ball. Quintana has had success against Cleveland in the past where his career record sits at 3-0 with a 3.63 ERA and a 1.231 WHIP. The last time he pitched in Cleveland Quintana allowed only one earned over six innings resulting in a 3-1 victory as +145 underdogs in MLB odds.

The ‘under’ is 13-3 over their last 16 meetings and we feel that streak will continue here for our MLB picks. Neither lineup strikes fear into the hearts of pitchers and the two hurlers starting this one are more than capable of keeping this one low.

Rockies (4- 3 O/U) vs. Giants (4-4 O/U)
The Rockies are generating plenty of offense and we expect them to continue their torrid hitting even against the ageless Tim Hudson who is chuckin’ for the Giants tonight. Colorado’s hot start finds them atop the NL West with an offense that ranks 3rd in batting average, 3rd in slugging percentage, 5th in on base percentage and 7th in runs scored.

Their starter, Christian Bergman, will be making his season debut but he got hammered in his last start of 2014 when the Dodgers tagged him for seven runs on 11 hits in five plus innings of work.

The Giants have not been setting the world on fire offensively but they should have enough thump in their bats to rattle Colorado’s starter in this one. The MLB odds total is low enough that we will take a bite at the apple and play ‘over’ here.

MLB Pick: Over 7(-115) at Heritage
