We browse the early odds board in search of MLB betting value on Sunday's card. Read on and find two selections that will maximize your profits at the end of the week.

Blue Jays vs. Orioles

Left-hander Brett Anderson (2-3, 6.83 ERA, 1.88 WHIP) takes the hill for the Blue Jays after losing his first start with them despite pitching well last Monday against the Red Sox, when he gave just one earned run on six hits with zero walks and three strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings. Anderson is just 1-3 with a 10.69 ERA in five home starts.

Chris Tillman (1-7, 7.91 ERA, 1.95 WHIP) starts for the Orioles, coming off another poor outing. Tillman allowed six earned runs on three hits (two home runs) with four walks and one strikeout over 5 1/3 innings to get a no-decision in a 7-6 win against the Mariners last Monday and he's now surrendered 10 runs over his last 10 2/3 innings to fall to 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA over his last five appearances. I'm looking at Over 9.5 at -119 MLB odds despite the high total.

Free MLB Pick: Over 9.5 (-119)

Braves vs. Cubs

This will be Max Fried's first start for the Braves. Fried (0-0, 5.40 ERA, 1.95 WHIP) gave up one earned run on two hits without walks and strikeouts in one inning of relief against the Reds on August 20 and he has a 7.36 ERA in two road appearances. 

Mike Montgomery (5-6, 3.29 ERA, 1.24 WHIP) will make his 38th appearance (11th start) of the season, trying to win his fifth consecutive decision. Montgomery dominated the Pirates last Monday, giving up one earned run on six hits (one home run) with no walks and four strikeouts over seven innings of a 6-1 win. The left-hander is 2-0 with a 1.73 ERA with one save over his last eight appearances (two starts). I like the Cubs on the runline for my MLB picks because of Montgomery's recent form.
