A battle of aces in the Yankees/Mariners game is the highlight of Tuesday's MLB action. Here's how the MLB odds are shaping up.


You can locate all of the listed odds below at our updated lines page at SBRodds.com. Be sure you get the best possible value you can before placing your final MLB picks.

Mariners (Hernandez) vs. Yankees (Sabathia) 

You know there's always going to be fireworks when Felix Hernandez is on the mound, and the atmosphere should be even better tonight up against New York hurler C.C. Sabathia. The Yankees are currently favored at -118. 

As for his sports pick, Willie Bee has gone with the UNDER 7 runs as his preferred play. It's a trend that's been very successful when each of these two starters have been on the hill. Will we see another pitching duel tonight?

Nationals (Haren) vs. Dodgers (Kershaw) 

Going in a similar direction for L.A/Washington, Willie has decided to roll with the UNDER 6.5 runs as one of his sports picks. Elsewhere in the MLB odds, the Dodgers are -180 favorites. 

Clayton Kershaw has been lighting it up like normal and should be able to corral this Washington lineup. A successful play on the UNDER is going to come down to whether or not Dan Haren can step up and pitch well versus Matt Kemp, Adrian Gonzalez, and the Dodgers.

Mets (Gee) vs. Cardinals (Gast) 

The Cardinals notched a 6-3 win in the series opener last night and Ron Patrick was on the right side, backing a St. Louis win on the run-line. Will St. Louis be able to get the job done again with a rookie pitcher on the mound? 

Not much is known about John Gast, though he was tearing it up in Triple A before getting the call up. Even with a young gun on the mound, the Cardinals are as high as -160 in the odds and Ron still thinks they're the right side.

Rangers (Holland) vs. Athletics (Colon)

Despite falling short of the mark in the series opener, Ron believes the Rangers can respond the right way and get a win behind Derek Holland, who is looking mighty good at 3-2 and a 2.54 ERA. He's posted quality starts in six of his seven appearances this season. 

The Athletics, listed as +105 underdogs, will counter with Bartolo Colon. The veteran has hit a bad patch after a great start, and he'll need to have his best stuff against the hard-hitting Rangers. Ron is backing a Rangers win tonight.

Padres (Cashner) vs. Orioles (Tillman)

And finally we've got Baltimore and San Diego, both of whom will send out young pitchers for tonight. The Orioles are at -140 and the Padres at listed at +130, while the O/U can be located at eight runs. 

Jeff Grant will be backing the Orioles in this spot, given how poorly San Diego has played on the road throughout the early stages of 2013. Baltimore's offense has been outstanding and Jeff is hoping that continues tonight.
