Boston Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins
MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox -151 odds (May 6th 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach MLB Saturday Free Pick Boston Red Sox Money Line (-) @ Minnesota @ 2:10 ET – As long-time followers know I rarely lay juice and certainly avoid $2+ favorites! However, I will rarely lay in this price range ($1.50) when it is an exceptionally strong situation and i see solid line value. That is the case here with the Red Sox after they fell short a second straight day at Minnesota yesterday. Boston has not lost three straight games this entire season and I don’t expect that to change here! The Red Sox will have Rick Porcello on the mound and he has a stellar 1.83 ERA and 1.07 WHIP this season.

The biggest problem for Porcello this season has been a lack of run support but that should change today. Nick Tepesch gets the start for the Twins and he has a 2.00 ERA in his 3 starts this season but those were in the minors. Also, he hasn’t pitched in 2 weeks so his pitch count will be limited here plus I don’t expect him to be sharp since he’s been on such a layoff. Keep in mind, Tepesch is 9-18 with a 4.68 ERA in his MLB career and has only made 1 start at the MLB level since 2014. The Red Sox are 8-4 in day games this season while Minnesota, even with yesterday’s win, is still only 2-5 in home games with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs this season. Free Pick on BOSTON RED SOX on the money line early Saturday afternoon. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Mike Lundin: May 5th 2017

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays
MLB Betting Pick: Rays -134 odds (May 5th 2017)

The Tampa Bay Rays host AL East rival Toronto Blue Jays for the opener of a three-game set Friday night. They’ve started the week by winning three of four games against the Fish, and I like the Rays here with their ace Chris Archer (2-1, 3.43 ERA) on the hill.
Archer limited the Blue Jays to one run on four hits through 7 1/3 innings of work his last time out. He’s been solid and allowed two runs or fewer in four of his six starts this season.

The Blue Jays turn to Francisco Liriano (2-2, 3.97 ERA). He held the Rays to one run on four hits through five frames his last time out, but he was charged with five runs on three hits and four walks here at the Trop in his season debut on April 7.  Liriano is 3-3 with a 5.49 ERA in 12 career appearances against the Rays and has been owned by Evan Longoria who is 7-for-23 with a pair of homers against the southpaw.

The Rays are 5-2 in Archer’s last seven home starts vs. Toronto, and this looks like a fair price on the home team.

Mike Lundin has picked 68-48 (59%) MLB Totals since June 12, 2016. He’s firing a BIG BET AT THE BASES Friday night. as he releases his Top Rated 10 AL West *GAME OF THE WEEK*. Mike is also looking to continue his dominance on the hardwood with a premium NBA selection on Spurs/Rockets.
