Sports handicapper Ian Cameron provides an early look at Overnight Betting Lines for Sunday's slate of baseball action. Check out his MLB picks for a couple of games.

We have a pair of matchups that are offering MLB odds value on the overnight lines for Sunday MLB action

White Sox vs. Rays
We should be in for a low scoring pitcher’s duel on Sunday at Tropicana Field between a pair of rock solid lefties Jose Quintana for the White Sox and Matt Moore for the Rays.

Quintana has allowed just 3 runs in 12.2 innings over his first two starts combined against Oakland and Minnesota and Tampa Bay’s lineup is struggling every bit as much in recent games as they’ve been held to a single run in their last three games combined. 

Quintana pitched well against the Rays in his lone start against them last season allowing 2 runs in 6 innings of work. However, he will be opposed here by an equally crafty left-handed pitcher in Matt Moore for the Rays—a hurler who has a ton of potential to be one of the top pitchers on this Rays starting rotation and may be on the verge of realizing that potential. Moore was terrific last time out shutting down the Cleveland Indians holding them to a single run in 7 strong innings.

Moore has made four starts in his career against the White Sox and he allowed 2 runs or less in all four of those outings. I expect this to be a low scoring battle between the White Sox and Rays and I am backing the 'Under' as my MLB pick at either 7 or 7.5 in this game to offer solid value.

Blue Jays vs. Red Sox
Aaron Sanchez made the Toronto Blue Jays starting rotation thanks to a tremendous spring training performance and so far, he is making the Jays look good for making that decision.

Sanchez has put together B2B quality starts to open the season against Tampa Bay and the NY Yankees as he allowed just 2 earned runs in 13 innings over those two starts and an impressive average ratio of 6.5 ground balls for every fly ball which indicates he is keeping the ball down which is leading to success.

It’s not always easy for a young pitcher to face this Red Sox lineup at Fenway Park but Sanchez held Boston to 3 earned runs in 12.2 innings in two starts against them last season. This issue makes some handicapper doubt on the match's final score.

Steven Wright will counter in this game for Boston and the knuckleball pitcher had a solid outing last week against Toronto at the Rogers Centre surrendering only 2 runs in 6.2 innings against the Jays but I think this strong Toronto lineup will benefit from getting a 2nd quick turnaround look at Wright in the last 7 days and should be able to put together a much better plate approach against him on Sunday.

Toronto is likely to be a small underdog or be close to even money against Boston in this matchup and I think the Blue Jays will offer betting value in this Sunday matchup at Fenway Park.
