We browse the early MLB odds board in search of betting value on Wednesday's card. Read on and find two picks that will maximize your profits this week.

Yankees vs. Rays

Left-hander Jaime Garcia (5-9, 4.43 ERA, 1.41 WHIP) takes the hill for the Yankees for the first time in two weeks. Garcia is 0-2 with a 5.11 ERA in five starts with the Yankees and he has yet to make it through six innings since joining them, so if he continues to struggle, finding a spot in a potential postseason roster is not guaranteed.

Chris Archer (9-9, 4.00 ERA, 1.24 WHIP) starts for the Rays looking to avoid his third straight loss. Archer allowed eight runs (six earned) on nine hits and one walk with five strikeouts in just three innings of a 9-3 loss against the Red Sox last Friday. The right-hander is 1-1 with a 3.72 ERA in three starts against the Yankees and this is a good spot for him to get back on track. I'm taking the Rays at -118 MLB odds.

Athletics vs. Red Sox

Jharel Cotton (7-10, 5.82 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) will start for the Athletics, coming off a rough outing against the Astros last Friday, when he gave up seven earned runs on seven hits (three home runs) with three walks and four strikeouts in five innings to get a no-decision in a 9-8 loss. Cotton now has an 11.00 ERA in nine innings over his last two starts and he's just 4-4 with a 3.81 ERA in 10 road starts.

Doug Fister (5-7, 3.91 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) will make his 15th appearance (12th start) for the Red Sox, going for his third straight win. Fister is 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA over his last two starts and the current Athletics lineup is hitting just .189 against him. I'll add the Red Sox -1.5 (-105) to my MLB picks here.
