Quite a few aces will be pitching throughout today, as we break down the MLB odds for Sunday.

You know it's going to be a fun day of baseball when you've got the likes of Clayton Kershaw, Stephen Strasburg, Justin Verlander, Felix Hernandez, Mike Minor, and Justin Masterson all set to start. Below you can track the games we will have MLB picks for:

Tigers (Verlander) vs. Yankees (Pettitte)

Covered by Willie Bee

If Justin Verlander pitches anything like he did five days ago, the Yankees are going to be in a lot of trouble. Oddsmakers have the Tigers listed as -170 favorites in the deciding game of the series, with New York set to call on Andy Pettitte.


Rays (Hellickson) vs. Dodgers (Kershaw)

Covered by Willie Bee

Zack Greinke was great yesterday and now it's Clayton Kershaw's turn in the rotation. As you'd expect, the Dodgers, winners of four straight games, are holding heavy chalk (-190) against Jeremy Hellickson and the Rays.


Orioles (Norris) vs. Giants (Cain)

Covered by Ron Patrick

Having allowed only three earned runs through starts for his new team, the Orioles have to be mighty pleased with their acquisition of Bud Norris. But, Matt Cain has been quite good himself lately, leading to San Francisco being favored at -105.


Phillies (Kendrick) vs. Nationals (Strasburg)

Covered by Ron Patrick

The Nationals have won both games of the series so far, scoring 17 total runs in the process. They have the fortune of having Stephen Strasburg on the hill this afternoon, with sportsbooks posting a line of -225 in favor of Washington at home.


Brewers (Peralta) vs. Mariners (Hernandez)

Covered by Joe Catalano

Felix Hernandez has given up a mere five earned runs in 27 innings since the All-Star break and he'll be starting against the Brewers today. Wily Peralta has been hit or miss, so it's hardly dumbfounding that we find Seattle at -185 in the MLB odds.
