Another full slate of baseball action is on the agenda for Wednesday and our handicappers are eager to provide the goods. We've gone over the MLB betting lines closely and believe we've found some good picks to add to your collection.

Oakland Athletics (Chavez) vs. Texas Rangers (Ross)
Covered by Ron Patrick
We saw another big win out of the Athletics yesterday and they have their eyes on the road sweep tonight. Can Jesse Chavez inspire Oakland to another victory? 

Both Chavez (1-0, 2.32 ERA) and Robbie Ross (1-1, 2.45 ERA) have been giving their teams good innings this season. However, Ron isn't about to fade the Athletics right now.

Pick: Athletics -107

San Diego Padres (Erlin) vs. San Francisco Giants (Hudson)
Covered by Ron Patrick
There should be no debating why the Giants are -160 favorites for tonight's home game against the Padres. After all, Tim Hudson has been excellent for the ballclub so far this season. 

Hudson has been his old reliable self, going 3-1 with a 2.19 ERA so far. He'll be opposed by Robbie Erlin (1-3, 6.35 ERA), who's had it much more rough. Ron is siding with the Giants on the run-line. 

Pick: Giants -1.5 (+132)

Seattle Mariners (Elias) vs. New York Yankees (Phelps)
Covered by Willie Bee
The Yankees are in danger of getting swept at home, with David Phelps hoping he can stem some of the bleeding and get the Bronx Bombers back on track tonight. 

Phelps will step in to the starting rotation now that Michael Pineda is out injured. For Seattle, Roenis Elias (1-2, 3.54 ERA) will take the bump. After deliberating, Willie thinks New York can avoid the sweep.

Pick: Yankees -135

Tampa Bay Rays (Archer) vs. Boston Red Sox (Doubront)
Covered by Willie Bee
Momentum is starting to pick up again for the Red Sox, though they may be worried about their chances, given the way Felix Doubront has struggled so far this year. He's 1-3 with a 6.00 ERA through five starts. 

Tampa Bay counters with Chris Archer, who we know can dominate when on his game. That being said, Willie likes the short price on the home team and is backing another Boston win.

Pick: Red Sox -110

New York Mets (Colon) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (Kendrick)
Covered by Jeff Grant
After kicking off this two-game set in Philadelphia with a 6-1 win, the Mets will go for another win behind the arm of veteran Bartolo Colon. Colon has had mixed results thus far, going 2-3 with a 4.50 earned run average. 

As for the Phillies, they turn to Kyle Kendrick, who's actually been pitching well despite not getting a winning decision yet this season. Jeff will be putting his faith in Kendrick and company to get the job done tonight. 

Pick: Phillies -111

Atlanta Braves (Harang) vs. Miami Marlins (Eovaldi)
Covered by Jeff Grant
We're not so sure Atlanta expected to get such dominant pitching out of Aaron Harang. He's been a revelation, going 3-1 with a miniscule 0.85 ERA. 

Runs may indeed may hard to come by for both offenses this evening, as Nathan Eovaldi (1-1, 2.87 ERA) has been solid. When it comes down to making his final MLB picks, Jeff has opted to take the Marlins, who are an impressive 10-4 at home this season. 

Pick: Marlins +100

Cleveland Indians (McAllister) vs. Los Angels Angels (Wilson)
Covered by Doug Upstone
It's been a great start for Zach McAllister, who's 3-1 with a 3.14 ERA and 1.19 WHIP heading into tonight's game in Los Angeles. 

The Angels call on lefty C.J. Wilson, a big reason why they're favored at -150 in the MLB betting odds. Wilson has allowed two or less earned runs in three of his first five starts and Doug thinks he'll be the catalyst to a win for the home team.

Pick: Angels -150
