Yu Darvish, Johnny Cueto and Masahiro Tanaka are just some of the top pitchers that will be on the mound on Wednesday. After analyzing the available MLB betting odds, our cappers have come up with their favorite picks for hump day.

Huge favorites tonight include Darvish and the Rangers (-230 vs. Miami), Tanaka and the Yankees (-180 at Seattle) and Verlander and the Tigers (-150 on the road against the White Sox). Which of these chalky plays will make the cut for our handicappers? 

 

Boston Red Sox (De La Rosa) vs. Baltimore Orioles (Chen)
Covered by Willie Bee and Jeff Grant
Brandon Workman and the bullpen held strong in Boston's win last night and now it's exciting talent Rubby De La Rosa's turn to impress. There are two opposite picks for tonight's game, with Willie running with the Red Sox to win again and Jeff backing the Orioles as favorites. Which side are you going with?

MLB Pick: Willie: Red Sox +115 // Jeff: Orioles -126

Oakland Athletics (Milone) vs. Los Angeles Angels (Weaver)
Covered by Willie Bee
The Angels are doing work right now. They've won five straight games to pull within 2.5 games of the Athletics for the division lead. Jered Weaver (7-4, 3.31 ERA) and Tommy Milone (3-3, 3.68 ERA) are on the bump tonight, with Willie recommending Los Angeles as the home chalk.

MLB Pick: Angels -125

Washington Nationals (Roark) vs. San Francisco Giants (Cain)
Covered by Ron Patrick
Matt Cain made a very successful return from injury, pitching seven innings of great ball at home versus the Mets last week. Thing is, Tanner Roark (4-4, 2.91 ERA) has been dealing as well, so it's tough to pick out where the best value is. Ron has opted for Washington at the underdog price with his MLB picks.

MLB Pick: Nationals +118

[gameodds]3/286535/?r3=43-19-349/dec&r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]

New York Yankees (Tanaka) vs. Seattle Mariners (Young)
Covered by Ron Patrick
What a purchase Masahiro Tanaka has turned out to be for the Yankees. Lord only knows where New York would be without him. At 9-1 and owning a 2.02 ERA, Tanaka has been a force to be reckoned with and will try to keep it going in Seattle. Chris Young (3.42 ERA) has been solid, so we don't blame for Ron for backing the UNDER tonight.

MLB Pick: UNDER 6.5

[gameodds]3/287255/?r3=43-19-349/dec&r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]

San Diego Padres (Ross) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (Hamels)
Covered by Jeff Grant
Another great pitching matchup here, with Cole Hamels trying to out-duel Tyson Ross. The Phillies won yesterday but have still lost eight of their last ten, while the Padres have dropped two in a row and six of their previous 10. It's hard not to like Hamels and the Phillies at a relatively cheap price.

MLB Pick: Phillies -129

[gameodds]3/286782/?r3=43-19-349/dec&r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]

Chicago Cubs (Hammel) vs. Pittsburgh Pirates (Cumpton)
Covered by Jeff Grant
So the Cubs still may be in last place in the NL Central, but they've really been playing well lately, building up a 8-2 record over their last 10 games. With the edge in the pitching matchup behind Jason Hammel (6-3, 2.53 ERA), Jeff isn't afraid of taking Chicago in this spot. The Cubs at +115 are the play.

MLB Pick: Cubs +115

[gameodds]3/286501/?r3=43-19-349/dec&r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]

Miami Marlins (Turner) vs. Texas Rangers (Darvish)
Covered by Joe Catalano
The biggest favorite of the day is Texas, who will have Yu Darvish on the mound. Darvish is an excellent 6-2 with a 2.36 ERA, with Miami turning to Jacob Turner (2-3, 5.93 ERA). We're eager to see what kind of pick Joe will be recommending, as the Rangers try to avoid a fifth consecutive defeat.

MLB Pick: Miami +202 at 5 Dimes
