Our MLB handicapping professional has gone a terrific 26-16 (62%) with his last 42 underdog picks. Go inside and find out what two underdogs betting values he’s uncovered on Friday.

White Sox (Quintana) vs Indians (Bauer)
Since 2014, Jose Quintana has made four starts against the Indians, and posted an excellent 1.61 ERA. The White Sox southpaw hurler has been rock solid during seven road starts this season, posting a stellar 2.76 ERA and 1.30 WHIP during those outings.

Cleveland is 3-6 in their previous nine and has dropped 3 games in a row. Their bullpen has struggled recently, evidenced by a lofty 1.62 WHIP as a staff over their last seven games. The Indians are coming off being swept in a three game road series by their division rival Kansas City Royals. The current MLB Odds at Heritage has Cleveland as a -116 money line favorite.

Play against any home team (Indians) that’s +125 to -125 on the money line, coming off being swept in a three game series on the road by a division rival, versus an opponent (White Sox) with a .450 to .550 win percentage. Hypothetically, by following this MLB betting angle, you would’ve gone 42-16 (72.4%) since 1997.

Mariners (Iwakuma) vs Red Sox (Elias)
Seattle has been a very good road team thus far in 2016, going an outstanding 20-13 (.606) when cast into that role. Mariner starter Hisashi Iwakuma has displayed good form over his last three starts, posting a superb 0.86 WHIP during that span.

Former Seattle Mariner Roenis Elias will be on the mound for Boston this evening. This will be his 2016 debut start and first ever as a member of the Red Sox. Elias has made one relief appearance since being called up from AAA Pawtucket, and allowed 3 earned runs in just 1 2/3 innings pitched. Elias was 0-7 in his team starts for Seattle a season ago when the Mariners were -100 to -150 on the money line.

Seattle will have the book on Elias more than any other team in Major League Baseball. I love the road underdog value in this spot, and one of my Friday MLB Picks will be indicative of such.
