Our MLB handicapping professional went 2-0 with his money line underdog picks on Saturday. Go inside to receive more winning MLB picks for Sunday.

Red Sox (Rodriguez) vs. A’s (Gravemen)
The Red Sox have scored 8 or more runs in each of their previous three games. Boston is a dismal 3-10 this season after scoring 8 runs or more in each of its last two games.

Eduardo Rodriguez will make the start today for Boston. The southpaw hurler is a poor 5-9 during his road team starts in 2016, and compiled a lofty 5.35 ERA in those fourteen outings.

Oakland’s Kendall Gravemen has displayed exceptional pitching for over his preceding three starts, evidenced by an excellent 1.59 ERA and 0.66 WHIP through that period of time. Gravemen has also posted a stellar 2.87 ERA in eleven starts at home this year.

Boston has a terrific .452 slugging percentage this season, and has an even better .508 mark over the course of its past ten games. Kendall Gravemen has a solid 1.28 WHIP thru 28 starts in 2016.

Any American League home underdog of +100 or more, going with a starting pitcher (Gravemen) who possesses WHIP of 1.30 or less for the season, versus an opponent that has a slugging percentage of .450 or better on the year, and that includes .480 or better over their previous ten games, resulted in those home underdogs going 66-44 (60%) since 1997. The average money line price for those money line home underdogs was +127.6.

Angels (Shoemaker) vs. Mariners (Iwakuma)
Despite a notable 9.0 game disparity in the AL West standings between these clubs, and relative to that fact, each team has gone down a contrarian path of late. The Angels (60-75) have win six of its last seven, and eight of their previous ten games. On the other hand, Seattle (69-66) has lost six of its preceding seven, and nine of their past eleven games.

Matt Shoemaker will be on the mound this afternoon for Los Angeles. Shoemaker has shown impressive form over his last three starts, compiling a sparkling 1.80 and 0.90 WHIP. Furthermore, the Angels went a perfect 3-0 in those games. The Angels have a stellar bullpen ERA of 2.28 over a course of its previous seven games.

Seattle’s Hisashi Iwakuma has been a bit shaky through his last four starts, evidenced by a hefty 5.49 ERA through that time period. He doesn’t figure to get much help from his bullpen based on their most recent performances. Seattle relievers have a combined 7.39 ERA and 1.79 WHIP during the Mariners prior seven games.

Lastly, the Angels have an outstanding OPS of .896, compared to a dismal .681 from Seattle, and that’s throughout each team’s last seven games. I’m going with the money line road underdog for one of my Sunday MLB picks. I’ll be making that wager at 5Dimes, and they’re rated as one of the best sportsbooks to do business with.
