We have reviewed the MLB odds and have isolated a pair of totals for Wednesday night. Let’s cash big in our MLB picks this evening.

Twins (17-14-2 O/U) vs. Tigers (16-17 O/U) 7:05 PM EDT 
The Tigers got back on track last night with a 2-1 victory after two consecutive losses to the Royals and will send Kyle Lobstein (3.00 ERA, 1.3 WHIP) to the hill to battle the Twins veteran hurler Ricky Nolasco (9.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP). When Nolasco last took the mound against Detroit he was rocked for six earned runs on six hits and lasted only three innings in what proved to be an 11-0 beating a little over a month ago.

Lobstein gets the nod tonight and is coming off an impressive performance against the White Sox in Chi-Town. The 25-year-old southpaw allowed no earned runs and only five hits through 7 2/3’s of an inning culminating in a 4-1 Tigers’ win. His counterpart, Ricky Nolasco has not fared nearly as well in the young season. Though his record indicates he is in fact 2-1 on the young season his stat line will testify to something completely different. The nine-year journeyman has been injured and battered since returning from elbow inflammation surrendering seven runs in only 10 innings of work since returning. Fortunately the Twins offense saved him and rung up a total of 11 runs to get him the win in both games.

It seems that when Nolasco pitches the Twins hit. And as solid as Lobstein was in his last outing against the 28th ranked Chicago offense, the Twins pose a much greater threat. As for Nolasco it appears he jumped back in the saddle a bit too quickly and will most likely get throttled again tonight. Five of the last six Twins games have gone over and we see plenty of score changes in store for this one. The MLB odds offered look enticing as GTBets.com is hanging 8 ½ (-120) and we intend to go over in our MLB picks.

MLB Pick: Over 8 ½ (-120) at GTBets

Rockies (15-13-1 O/U) vs. Angels (15-16-2 O/U) 10:05 PM EDT 
After jumping out to a 4-0 start to begin the 2015 campaign the Rockies are currently mired in a shame spiral as they have now dropped their last 10 with the most recent defeat coming at the hands of the Angels last night in a 5-2 defeat. They will end this short two-game set this evening before they travel to Dodger Stadium where they will tangle with their NL west rivals. But before they take on Big Blue the Rockies will send Jordan Lyles (4.42 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) to the bump where he is sporting a lifetime record of 2-1 with a 5.52 ERA and a 1.363 WHIP against the LA Angels as a starter.

On the flipside the Angels will trot out Hector Santiago (2.57 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) whose last appearance featured a one hit performance but was all for naught as closer Huston Street blew the save and the game surrendering three earned runs in the ninth en route to a 3-2 loss to the Astros. Santiago will be facing the Rockies lineup for the first time in his career.

The bottom line here is that the Rockies may only be 27th in runs scored but they are hitting to the tune of a .271 batting average good for 5th in the majors. It is just a matter of time before all those stranded men on base start coming home while the Angels should feast on a pitcher like Lyles who cannot seem to get it together as the 11 runs on 17 hits over his last 12 innings of work will attest. The MLB betting odds are begging us to go high in this one.

MLB Pick: Over 8 (-110) at GTBets
