We're going to hook you up with Sunday Night Baseball and a late MLB game to allow you time to profit on the early sports to maximize your potential. Here are our MLB Picks of the Day.

Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros
Boston starter, Henry Owens, was supposed to be in Pawtucket, but is getting his chance to shine on the grandstage nonetheless. Owens had control issues in Spring Training and will get the opportunity to face guys like Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa. Although this will be a tall order, the Astros record has proven that they've been a major disappointment this season at 6-12.

This team is definitely one of the biggest disappointments of the season thus far and they'll get a major opportunity themselves, to pick a "w" up against a kid with little experience and little control in the kid Owens. Another thing about this game that's intriguing is the MLB odds being offered.

Odds makers list the Astros as a mere -105. I know that Boston has the better record at 8-9 and this is the Big Papi Farewell Tour, but Scott Feldman (0-2, 4.11) is no slouch and pitching is the most important part of the game. This game sets up well in a warm Minute Maid Park for Houston to trample the Sox, wouldn't you agree?

Houston had lost 4 games in a row until an 8-3 victory over Boston yesterday. Winning a 2nd consecutive game, going into the new week would be huge.


Little Man, Big Numbers
At 5 foot 5 inches tall, Jose Altuve has established himself as one of the best players in the game. Altuve (.415 OBP%) knows how to get on base and has the speed to get around the bases. He leads Houston with 17 runs, 22 hits, and 7 doubles. He used to be a small ball player, but has increased his power output to go along with his .314 BA. 

Altuve has 5 HR and 11 RBI and you wouldn't expect so much so quick. He sets the tone for the rest of the lineup; for guys like power-hitter Colby Rasmus. Expect him to do the same in this game as Houston wins and lines your pocket as your MLB Pick for the game.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Colorado Rockies
Surprisingly at 9-8, Colorado is having a nice season, but we focus in on the Coors Rules that I always use. When the pitchers are significantly above average, I take the under on an always bloated betting total. If the starting pitchers are at the back end of the rotation, I take the over the total , no matter how high odds makers place it. Today, the total is listed at 11 runs and Alex Wood (1-2, 5.06 ERA) and Jordan Lyles (1-1, 6.00 ERA) square off. 

There's no need for me to tell you that we're expecting a high scoring game as the ballpark and the Denver air can't hold the baseball inside the park. Players look to stuff their statistics while pitchers numbers take a beating.


Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez
I know that Cargo leads the Rockies in most offensive statistical categories (4 HR, 11 RBI, .338 RBI), but Arenado is the best player on this baseball team; hands down. Along with Trevor Story's amazing story, Arenado is 2nd on the team in dingers with 7 to go along with 17 RBI and a .284 BA. The best member of the Rockies outside of Coors Field is Nolan Arenado.

He's the player that hits the big home runs and we hope that he does tonight. Please check Twitter or a site that will list the starting lineups, therefore there are no surprises. Occasionally on a Sunday, a player will get the day off. As of now, the betting total is  Over 11 in this game. Either team can put up some runs.
