SOX VS. BLUE JAYS BETTING JUNE 26TH 2014Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Betting Pick: Over 10 runs -110 odds (June 26th 2014)

Your free pick for Thursday, June 26th, 2014, comes in baseball as Chicago and the Blue Jays meet in Toronto. Toronto is a great hitter’s park and the White Sox are in town with an improved offense, 7th in baseball in runs scored, 8th in slugging. The pitching isn’t improved, though, which is why they are in last place. Scott Carroll goes here, with a 2-3 record and a 4.30 ERA, with opponents hitting .309 off him. He is 0-2 on the road with a 4.70 ERA. The over is 17-6-1 in the White Sox last 24 road games vs. a team with a winning record, plus 4-1 over when Carroll starts. Toronto has a powerhouse attack, 3rd in baseball in runs scored and slugging, 4th in on base percentage. The over is 6-1 in the Blue Jays last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter. Toronto lefty J.A. Happ (4.87 ERA) is back to struggling, with opponents hitting .291 off him. Play the White Sox/Blue Jays Over the total!

YANKEES VS. BLUE JAYS MLB PICK JUNE 25TH 2014New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays
MLB Pick: Yankees +110 odds (June 25th 2014)

Wednesday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #913 New York Yankees over Toronto Blue Jays (Wednesday, 7:05pm EST) The Toronto Blue Jays have been one of the pleasant surprises of 2014 as they have controlled the AL East from the outset. But times have been a little tougher of late as the Jays have dropped 11 of 16 overall. It’s likely Toronto was playing a little bit above their heads early on and were a bit overrated. Remember this was a last place team just last year and the roster didn’t change all that much. One of the reasons things have gotten a little dicey is the regression of youngster Drew Hutchison. The 23-year old dominated AL hitters over the first couple of months of the season. But lately, Hutchison has been very inconsistent and he could still dealing with a lingering injury. Over his last five outings, he has given up 4, 0, 5, 0 and 5 earned runs respectively. His K/BB ratio during those starts is a lackluster 14-9. That’s a far cry from his numbers earlier on this season when he looked like an All-Star. Hiroki Kuroda takes the mound for the New York Yankees. He’s been very solid at the age of 39 and much better than most expected. He will probably wear down as the season goes on, but it’s still early and we should see another strong effort from him here. The Jays have a couple of guys in their lineup banged up, including Brett Lawrie and Jose Bautista. That should make it a lot easier on Kuroda in case the Yankees bats don’t come out to play. I have a feeling this one will be tight late, and in that case I give the Yankees the edge. They have the better back end options and should prevail here. Take New York as an underdog.
