We've been busy at work going through all of the available MLB betting lines, trying to sift through the value and find the best picks. Which games have we examined and which plays are we recommending? Find out inside.

Atlanta Braves (Floyd) vs. Boston Red Sox (Lackey) 
Covered by Ron Patrick
Now that the Red Sox have finally stopped the bleeding, they have to keep winning in order to avoid falling too far behind in the AL East. Right now, they're eight games back of the division-leading Blue Jays. Will it be John Lackey or Gavin Floyd who stands out most on the mound? 

Pick: Red Sox -135

New York Yankees (Kuroda) vs. St. Louis Cardinals (Miller) 
Covered by Ron Patrick 
The Cardinals are trending upwards, and will be hoping to get more solid work out of Shelby Miller, who's 6-3 with a 3.18 ERA this season. The Yankees turn to Hiroki Kuroda (3-3, 4.55 ERA), who hasn't been near his best, and Ron doesn't have much faith in the road team. He'll be backing St. Louis.

Free MLB Pick: Cardinals -121

Chicago Cubs (Jackson) vs. San Francisco Giants (Lincecum) 
Covered by Willie Bee
It's been good to see Tim Lincecum return to form, but it's hard to remain faithful to a guy who's been so inconsistent in recent years. Together with Edwin Jackson, the pair have a combined ERA of almost 9.50, so it's no wonder Willie believes the best way to go is with the 'over.'

Free MLB Pick:  'Over' 7.5

Los Angeles Angels (Wilson) vs. Seattle Mariners (Hernandez) 
Covered by Willie Bee
One of the best pitching matchups on the board features Felix Hernandez and C.J. Wilson. Hernandez has been the better of the two this season, going 6-1 with a 2.75 ERA, and Willie is tempted by the short price on King Felix and the Mariners at home. He's recommending Seattle with his sports picks.

Free MLB Pick: Mariners -125

[gameodds]3/287315/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]


Miami Marlins (Alvarez) vs. Washington Nationals (Zimmermann) 
Covered by Jeff Grant
Something just hasn't been clicking for Jordan Zimmermann (3-2, 3.95 ERA) this season. We'll find out if he has his best stuff when he takes on Giancarlo Stanton and the Marlins at home today. Jeff has run over the MLB odds, and sees reasonably good value in the 'over,' with Henderson Alvarez (2-3, 3.21 ERA) set to take the bump for Miami.

Free MLB Pick: 'Over' 7.5

[gameodds]3/287814/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]


Texas Rangers (Saunders) vs. Minnesota Twins (Gibson) 
Covered by Jeff Grant 
Joe Saunders makes his first start since early April, and boy, did he look ugly in that outing, giving up six hits, and four runs over 3, and 2/3 innings! Will he fare better against the Twins in Minnesota tonight? Jeff is riding Texas, and hoping that the big bats will show up against Kyle Gibson and company.

Free MLB Pick: Rangers +100

[gameodds]3/287128/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]


San Diego Padres (Stauffer) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (Anderson) 
Covered by Doug Upstone
As the bottom two ballclubs in the NL West, both the Diamondbacks and Padres could use a win tonight. We've got two little-known hurlers on the mound in Chase Anderson and Tim Stauffer, with Doug of the opinion that San Diego is worth the play at an appealing underdog price.

Free MLB Pick: Padres +102

[gameodds]3/286549/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]


Cincinnati Reds (Bailey) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (Kershaw) 
Covered by Ross Benjamin
That's the Clayton Kershaw we know, and love. He was flat-out dominant in his most recent start, a road win over the Phillies, and will now try to get the better of the Reds. Though Kershaw has been excellent, Homer Bailey has struggled (4-3, 5.34 ERA), leading Ross to believe that the 'over' may be worth looking at closely when making your MLB picks.

Free MLB Pick: 'Over' 6
