As another full night of baseball approaches, it's once again time to examine the MLB betting odds to see where the value is. Our cappers have released their top picks of the day. Will we start the weekend off right?


San Francisco Giants (Bumgarner) vs. St. Louis Cardinals (Wainwright)
Covered by Willie Bee
Yet again, the Giants won yesterday, pushing their record to an MLB-best 35-19. They'll have their hands full with Adam Wainwright tonight though, even with the luxury of having Madison Bumgarner on the mound themselves. Willie is rolling with Wainwright, who's 8-2 with a 1.67 ERA, to guide the Cardinals to a win as the MLB betting favorites.

Free MLB Pick: Cardinals -140

Cincinnati Reds (Leake) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (Arroyo)
Covered by Ron Patrick
What a show Josh Collmenter put on for Arizona fans last night! He pitched a complete game gem, helping the Diamondbacks improve to 14-15 at home and 23-33 overall. Can Bronson Arroyo (4-3, 4.15 ERA) give the home team another great start? With Mike Leake performing at a high level (2.79 ERA), Ron believes we should look towards the 'under' here.

Free MLB Pick: 'Under' 8.5

Pittsburgh Pirates (Liriano) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (Beckett)
C
overed by Ron Patrick and Jeff Grant
It's going to be tough for Josh Beckett to pitch any better than he did five days ago...you know, after completing a no-hitter on the road and all. Interestingly enough, we have two different picks for tonight's game in Los Angeles, with Ron liking the chances of a pitchers duel, and Jeff taking the 'over.'

Free MLB Pick: Ron: 'Under' 7 // Jeff: 'Over' 7

Los Angeles Angels (Richards) vs. Oakland Athletics (Pomeranz)
Covered by Willie Bee
This is quite an important series, with the Angels trying their best to catch the Athletics for the top spot in the AL West. Right now, Oakland hold a slight 1.5-game lead in the division, and they should be feeling confident with Drew Pomeranz (4-2, 1.38 ERA) getting the start. However, Willie foresees offense ruling the day, and will therefore be selecting the 'over.'

Free MLB Pick: 'Over' 7.5

Kansas City Royals (Vargas) vs. Toronto Blue Jays (Happ)
Covered by Steven Suarez
Two southpaws in J.A. Happ and Jason Vargas take the mound tonight, with the Blue Jays acting as the favorites in the MLB odds. It's tough not to like Toronto in this spot: they've won nine of their last ten, and have been absolutely crushing the ball. I recommend that readers take on the small chalk, and back the home team.

Free MLB Pick: Blue Jays -130

Tampa Bay Rays (Price) vs. Boston Red Sox (Workman)
Covered by Doug Upstone
Normally opposing teams would be terrified about coming up against David Price, but the “ace” hasn't been anywhere near his best this season. He's just 4-4 with a 4.42 ERA on the year, part of the reason the Rays have limped out to a poor 23-31 overall record. Brandon Workman (3.18 ERA) starts for Boston and Doug is a fan of getting Boston at this kind of price at Fenway.

Free MLB Pick: Red Sox +115

[gameodds]3/287261/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]


Detroit Tigers (Verlander) vs. Seattle Mariners (Iwakuma)
Covered by Jeff Grant
Justin Verlander has been struggling lately, but he'll at least have a great offense supporting him tonight. The Tigers are 30-20 overall, and are a very impressive 16-9 on the road so far in 2014. Can they get after Hisashi Iwakuma (3-1, 2.39 ERA) at Safeco Field tonight? Jeff isn't so sure, as he's actually banking on Seattle with his baseball picks tonight.

Free MLB Pick: Mariners -115
