Our MLB handicapping professional has gone 19-13 with his last 32 MLB underdog picks. Go inside to get his three top underdog picks for tonight and make some easy cash.

Red Sox (Porcello) vs. Orioles (Jimenez)
Rick Porcello will make his first start of the season against Baltimore. During his three starts versus Baltimore in 2015, Porcello was shelled, evidenced by a large 9.37 ERA and 2.04 WHIP in those outings. The veteran right-hander has also gone 0-3 in his last three road team starts while posting a lofty 5.30 ERA.

I’m not going to make a case that I’m favoring Baltimore in this matchup because of starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez. Quite frankly, he’s been terrible so far in 2016, and has been even worse than that during recent starts. However, for whatever reason, Jimenez has received plenty of run support in his home starts over the past two seasons.

During that time, he’s gone an extremely profitable 15-4 in his team starts at home. Speaking of being at home, the Orioles are 18-10 (.643) at Camden Yards this year, and that includes 15-5 (.750) during night games.

Brewers (Anderson) vs. Phillies (Eickhoff)
Chase Anderson makes the start this evening for Milwaukee, and he’s displayed superb form over his last three starts. During that span, Anderson compiled an impressive 2.89 ERA and 0.80 WHIP. Milwaukee has gone a perfect 7-0 since 2014 at Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia starter Jerad Eickhoff faced Milwaukee once this season. He was rocked in that outing for 7 earned runs on 9 hits in just 5 1/3 innings of work. The Phillies are 2-10 in their last 12 which includes a current four game losing streak.

The road underdog value is clearly a best option in this matchup, and I’ll follow suit when making one of my Wednesday MLB Picks.

Rays (Moore) vs. Twins (Gibson)
Tampa Bay enters this four game weekend series as an ice cold team. The Rays are 2-10 in its last 12 games, and that includes losing four in a row. Tampa Bay starter Matt Moore enters today in poor form over his last three starts, compiling a large 7.36 ERA and 2.03 during those outings. Moore is also 0-3 during his road team starts this season with an uninspiring 6.06 ERA in addition to a mammoth 1.96 WHIP.

Minnesota has recently picked it up offensively of late. As a matter of fact, the Twins have an eye popping .456 team slugging percentage of their last seven games. Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson is 15-6 during his career team starts when facing teams with a losing record.
