We've got you covered as another full slate of MLB action knocks on the door. Which games are we tackling throughout the day and what kind of baseball betting picks are we recommending for our readers? Check it all out inside.

Colorado Rockies (Chacin) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (Greinke)
Covered by Willie Bee
The Dodgers won the series opener yesterday to pull within six games of the Giants in the NL West. They're 38-34 overall on the year, with Colorado now at 34-36 (15-22 on the road). Zack Greinke will be on the mound tonight and Willie believes Los Angeles is worth taking on the run-line, currently available at plus money at the top sportsbooks.

MLB Pick: Dodgers -1.5 (+125)

New York Mets (Niese) vs. St. Louis Cardinals (Wacha)
Covered by Willie Bee
Runs will be a hot commodity tonight with Michael Wacha (4-5, 2.88 ERA) and Jonathon Niese (3-3, 2.54 ERA) taking the mound. As you can tell, both pitchers have been tremendous. St. Louis is the hotter team overall, winning four in a row to get within 3.5 games of Milwaukee, but Willie likes New York at a plus price behind Niese's strong arm.

MLB Pick: Mets +150

Texas Rangers (Darvish) vs. Oakland Athletics (Milone)
Covered by Ron Patrick
So we all know Yu Darvish is one of the best of the business, but can he get it done in a very tough matchup on the road against Oakland? Darvish is 7-2 with a 2.11 ERA so far this season. The Athletics turn to Tommy Milone, who's 4-3 with a 3.47 ERA, and Ron believes we're getting a great price on the home team in this spot.

MLB Pick: Athletics +100

 Toronto Blue Jays (Stroman) vs. New York Yankees (Tanaka)
Covered by Jeff Grant
Speaking of elite pitchers, how about the rookie season Masahiro Tanaka (10-1, 2.02 ERA) is having? He'll most definitely be in contention for the AL Cy Young award if he keep this level up, as he gets set to come up against the Blue Jays, who are 21-13 on the road in 2014. Tanaka has been special, but Marcus Stroman (3-1, 5.18 ERA) hasn't been, with Jeff ready to back the OVER tonight.

MLB Pick: OVER 8

San Francisco Giants (Cain) vs. Chicago White Sox (Danks)
Covered by Jeff Grant
The Giants have hit a rough patch, losing three in a row and going 4-6 over their past 10 games. Their lead in the division is dwindling, so they need to start piling up those victories again. They'll send out Matt Cain (1-4, 3.84 ERA) against Chicago's John Danks (5-5, 4.17 ERA) and the MLB odds board shows San Francisco favored. Jeff is on the Giants as short road favorites.

MLB Pick: Giants -120

Philadelphia Phillies (Kendrick) vs. Atlanta Braves (Santana)
Covered by Jeff Grant
These two division rivals know each other well, but right now it's the Braves that have a lot more to be happy about. They're in first place in the NL East despite going 4-6 in their previous 10 matchups overall. We have Ervin Santana and Kyle Kendrick on the bump this evening and Jeff is foreseeing offense winning out over pitching.

MLB Pick: OVER 7.5

Kansas City Royals (Ventura) vs. Detroit Tigers (Scherzer)
Covered by Matthew Jordan
The Royals just keep winning and winning. The streak is now at eight games, which has pulled them to within a half-game of the Tigers for the summit of the division. Incredible stuff. There's a good chance the streak will come to a crashing halt, considering ace Max Scherzer (8-2, 3.05 ERA) picks up the assignment tonight. Matthew likes both Detroit on the money-line and the UNDER with his MLB picks.

MLB Pick: Tigers -169 and UNDER 7.5
