We have a fantastic Sunday of MLB, filled with some bigtime matchups and really good pitching matchups. This is the type of day that's perfect for the bettor to take advantage of the books. We've have a stupendous MLB season thus far and now it's time to go for the jugular with our MLB Picks for Sunday.

Joe C. Record - 80-48 +33.28 Units

Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Mets


On Sunday, I always feature a few MLB picks on late games, but this game was too good to pass up as Zack Greinke (9-2, 1.30) takes the mound and attempts to extend his scoreless inning streak as he takes on the very capable Jacob deGrom.

In a game that we had 3 units on and won yesterday, Matt Harvey and the Mets dominated the Dodgers, 15-2. It was the first time in a very long time that Harvey had received run support. Now, their big gun, Jacob deGrom, takes the mound and if anyone can defeat Zack Greinke, it's deGrom. That said, Greinke has had extra time off as he just had a baby and we won't know if lack of sleep will affect him adversly or will he feel motivated being a new dad?

Greinke is putting up Bob Gibson like numbers and just because Daniel Murphy, Ruben Tejada, and Kirk Neuwenheis had great games yesterday, doesn't mean that there will be a repeat performance today as Greinke is pitching as well as we've seen a pitcher pitch in the majors in possibly the last 2 or 3 decades. Greinke is holding opposing hitters to a .187 batting average, is facing a weak hitting ball club in a pitchers park and this game is set up perfectly for him.

Met Killer

Let's not forget Jimmy Rollins. I just about thought that his career was over, but evidently not as he hit his 11th home run of the season yesterday and has hit a dinger in every game in this series. Rollins is notorious for crushing the Mets. Will he be the difference in today's game with another homer? He certainly doesn't hit for average,but obviously, when he plays against the Mets, it's a psychological issue and he becomes Babe Ruth,

The Pick

Normally in a spot such as this, you would have to take the Dodgers as Greinke is unhittable, but we also have to remember that deGrom is one of the best pitchers in baseball also. What does this mean? This means that we're going to see a bunch of 0's on the scoreboard and the under is the way to go when placing a bet.

Sunday Night Baseball

Detroit Tigers at Boston Red Sox

Red Sox Devastation

Everyone knows that the Red Sox are a baseball team full of pride. Tonight, the Red Sox, who have lost 9 out of their last 10 games, will be put to the test as they play on national television. I already think that their season is over, but there's still a ton of games to go and remember 2004. As of now, it looks like Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees have the American League East solidified.

Shane Greene

Tonight, the Sox face a Detroit Tigers team that has a lot of catching up to do as they're 10.5 games behind the Kansas City Royals in the American League Central Division and their offense just isn't there. WIthout Miguel Cabrera in the lineup, there is less protection and the Tigers are struggling just to make it to the .500 mark.

Tonight, the Tigers send out Shane Greene (4-7 6.52) to the mound and he's been an utter disaster. Greene has allowed opposing hitters to hit .295 off of him and his ERA for the month of July is 11.57. That is simply terrible. I look for the young guns in Xander Bogaerts and Brock Holt ot have a field day with Greene as Shane Greense has appeared to have lost his way. We may see a lot of the Tigers bullpen in this game.

Take Boston at home as they're the lesser of two evils.
