We browse the early odds board in search of MLB betting value on Sunday's card and offer two MLB picks to maximize your profits while you enjoy the NFL games of the day.  

Indians vs. Mariners

Right-hander Corey Kluber (17-4, 2.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP) takes the hill for the Indians after giving up just three hits and no walks with nine strikeouts in seven innings of a 3-2 win against the Royals last Sunday. Kluber extended his scoreless streak to 22 straight innings and he leads the American League with 17 wins, a 2.35 ERA and an 0.85 WHIP and he is second with 252 strikeouts. 

Mike Leake (10-12, 3.91 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) starts for the Mariners, looking to win his fourth straight decision since joining them. Leake allowed one earned run on one hit and no walks with five strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings to get a no-decision in a 3-1 loss against the Rangers last Tuesday. I'm looking at Under at -105 MLB odds, Kluber has been unhittable of late and Leake is 3-0 with a 2.13 ERA in four starts with the Mariners. 

Free MLB Pick: Under 7.5 (-105)

Angels vs. Astros 

Tyler Skaggs (2-6, 4.30 ERA, 1.37 WHIP) will start for the Angels, trying to get back on track from Tuesday's loss against the Indians, when he allowed two earned runs on eight hits (one home run) and one walk with one strikeout in 5 1/3 innings of a 6-3 setback. Skaggs is just 0-3 with a 3.93 ERA in seven road starts.      

Lance McCullers Jr. (7-3, 3.97 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) will make his 21st start for the Astros, his first since September 6, as he's been battling arm fatigue. MccCullers was strong at the start of the season but he struggled in July before missing August due to a back injury. Overall he's been serviceable and he's 4-0 with a 2.87 ERA in eight home starts. I'm taking the Astros -152 with my MLB picks here.

Free MLB Pick: Astros -152
