Brandon McCarthy will take the hill for the Dodgers coming off one of his best starts of the season, when he threw six scoreless innings against the Cubs last Saturday, giving up just two hits and one walk with six strikeouts. McCarthy (5-1, 3.28 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) has allowed two earned runs or less in six of his eight starts and he's 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA in four day starts. 

The Cardinals will go with Adam Wainwright (5-3, 4.20 ERA, 1.54 WHIP), who pitched seven shutout innings in a 3-0 win over the Rockies last Saturday, allowing just three hits and a walk with six strikeouts. It was Wainwright's second outing with seven scoreless innings in his last three starts and his second straight appearance with six strikeouts. 

I'm taking 'under' 8.5 at -116 MLB odds, McCarthy has been consistent all season long and Wainwright has an 0.44 ERA and an 0.98 WHIP over 20 1/3 innings in his last three starts.

Free MLB Pick: Under 8.5 (-116)

Red Sox vs. Orioles

Left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez will make his 11th appearance of the season (10th start). He pitched six scoreless innings, giving up five hits and three walks with four strikeouts in a 3-0 win over the Mariners last Friday. Rodriguez (4-1, 2.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP) has allowed just 11 earned runs over 44 innings of work, he's 8th in the American League with a 2.77 ERA, 10th with a 1.12 WHIP and he has an impressive 9.6 K/9.

Wade Miley, who will start for the Orioles, is winless in eight starts since April 14 despite allowing two earned runs or less in six of those eight starts and in eight of his 10 starts this season. Miley (1-3, 3.02 ERA, 1.51 WHIP) gave up four earned runs on eight hits (one home run) and three walks with two strikeouts in five innings of a 5-2 loss against the Astros last Saturday. 

I'm going 'under' 9 for my MLB picks. Rodriguez is showing no sign of slowing down and he already beat the Orioles this season, pitching six scoreless innings while surrendering just one hit and five walks with seven strikeouts while Miley has an 0.92 ERA in four home starts.

Free MLB Pick: Under 9 (-110)
