We realize a lot of attention will be on the NBA and Players Championship tomorrow, but don't forget about bases. Here's the lowdown on Sunday's MLB odds.

Let's have a look at the morning lines for Sunday!

The three biggest MLB odds favorites of the day? The New York Mets (-200 vs. Pittsburgh), Boston Red Sox (-190 vs. Toronto), and Washington Nationals (-175 vs. the Chicago Cubs).

Braves vs. Giants

The Giants, listed as the underdogs this morning, have recovered very nicely after losing the opening game of the series. They've routed Atlanta in each of the last two matchups and will be hoping Tim Lincecum can lead them to another W

Now 7-3 over their last 10, San Francisco has been playing great baseball as of late, but they're going to have to be at their best against Kris Medlen, who despite having only one win to his name is still an excellent pitcher. Where will Joe Freda place his MLB picks for this one?

Yankees vs. Royals

Ron Patrick was on the money with his New York pick for game two of the series yesterday. Andy Pettitte pitched well and Mariano Rivera closed out proceedings in a narrow 3-2 win for the Yankees.

Sunday's matchup will feature Hiroki Kuroda and Ervin Santana, who have both been tremendous in 2013. Kuroda is 4-2 with a 2.30 ERA and Santana has gone 3-1 with a 2.36 ERA. Ron will have his hands full with deciding where the value lies this afternoon. As of now the Yankees are +100 underdogs.

Phillies vs. Diamondbacks

Another series that Ron is tracking is Arizona/Philadelphia. The Phillies, after losing three in a row, were finally able to get back on the winning side with a 3-1 win last night. Cliff Lee was excellent and the Philadelphia pen was able to hang on.

Today it's Kyle Kendrick and Brandon McCarthy that will get their chance to impress. Kendrick has been the far more effective pitcher so far this season (4-1, 2.45 ERA), but that hasn't stopped linesmakers from making Philadelphia +111 underdogs.

Blue Jays vs. Red Sox

Mark Buehrle defied the odds yesterday, pitching lights out in helping Toronto to a 3-2 win at Fenway. The Red Sox will aim to bounce back with Ryan Dempster on the mound, though we'll have to wait a little bit before the MLB odds are made public.

Why's that? Well, Brandon Morrow has been scratched from his start and it appears as if Chad Jenkins, who was recently recalled from the minors, will be his replacement. The 25-year old logged a 4.50 ERA in his first full season in 2013.

Angels vs. White Sox

Another win for the Angels has come at just the right time for a team that was struggling immensely. In Sunday's sole night game, it should be a great clash between C.J. Wilson (3-1, 3.86 ERA) and Chris Sale (3-2, 3.42 ERA).

Despite L.A's improved play, they're still the underdogs (+107) for this game in the Windy City. Sale has recorded four straight quality starts and hasn't picked up a losing decision since he was shellacked by Cleveland on April 13th. Be on the lookout for Willie Bee's pick later today.

Marlins vs. Dodgers

The losing streak has finally come to an end for the Dodgers. They had dropped eight in a row, but managed to trounce Miami 7-1 last night.

Even with Chris Capuano sporting a 10.38 ERA on the season, L.A. is still favored at -160 to get another win this afternoon. The Marlins will turn to Tom Koehler, who will get a crack in the rotation after previously serving in the bullpen. What kind of sports pick will Joe Freda have in this spot.
