Our MLB handicapper shares his two top money line underdogs on Tuesday’s card. Go inside before making any MLB picks today and profit from their valuable insight.

Colorado (De La Rosa) vs. Cincinnati (Stephenson)
Each bullpen staff has been terrible to start the season. So let’s take a look at other factors that I see providing us with money line betting value for one of our MLB picks today.

After getting off to an encouraging 5-1 start to the 2016 MLB campaign, Cincinnati has lost six of their last seven games heading into today. During that stretch, the Reds have allowed a very sizable 7.6 runs per game. Cincinnati’s has scored 3 runs or less during seven of its previous eight games. The Reds bullpen has allowed an alarming 11 home runs already this season. That’s not good news considering that Colorado has already smashed 20 home runs this season, and that includes 13 in seven road games.

Colorado is off to a more than respectable 8-5 start to the season, and that includes 5-2 on the road. They’ve also gone 5-1 during their previous six games. Colorado starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa has been terrible in his first two starts, but he’ll be facing an opposing lineup on Tuesday which accounted for 8 hits or less during six of its last seven, and has hit only 9 home runs in thirteen games this season.

MLB Pick:  Rockies -104

Arizona (Ray) vs. San Francisco (Cain)
Matt Cain has displayed shaky form during his first two starts in 2016, and his lofty 6.75 ERA during those outings is further proof of just that. Cain has struggled throughout his career in April, and a dismal 16-30 team start record in that regard certainly lends itself to futility. As a matter of fact, Cain is 0-6 with his pitching decisions in April since 2013. The Giants enter today having lost five of their previous six games.

According to MLB odds at, Arizona is a +120 money line underdog today. The Diamondbacks have gone an extremely profitable 20-8 (.714) since 2014 as a road underdog of +100 to +125. Robbie Ray will be on the mound today, and he’s been solid during his first two starts of the season, evidenced by a stellar 2.84 ERA during those outings. Arizona has averaged 6.3 runs and 12.7 hits per game during its last three outings. They’ve also won three of their previous four games.
