San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies

The San Diego Padres are playing against the Rockies in Colorado at 3:10 PM Eastern Time. The Padres are currently in second place in the MLB National League West with a record of 50-56. They sit 7.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place.

The Rockies are currently dead last in the MLB National League West with a record of 39-49. The Padres are pitching Blake Snell who has had an extremely rough start to the season. The pitcher is 1-5 in his first 6 games with an ERA of 4.66, 61 strikeouts, and a WHIP of 1.38.

The Rockies are not pitching a much better pitcher as they have decided to pitch Kyle Freeland who is 4-7 in the first 11 games. He has an ERA of 4.70, 66 strikeouts, and a WHIP of 1.37.

Despite both pitchers being mediocre this season I expect Blake Snell to begin to turn his season around. The line is open at Padres -141 Moneyline and the Rockies +120 Moneyline. My pick for this game is -141, I expect Blake Snell to pitch his best game of the MLB season and the Padres to cruise past the Rockies. The Padres need to take advantage of games like this if they want to try to reach the Dodgers.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals

The Los Angeles Dodgers play the Cardinals in St. Louis at 7:15 PM Eastern Time. The Los Angeles Dodgers are currently first in the MLB NL East with a record of 56-30 and continue to dominate the division.

The St. Louis Cardinals are currently in second place in the MLB National League Central, only 2 games back from the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Dodgers are pitching Tyler Anderson who has had a tremendous start to the season winning the first 9 out of ten games.

Anderson has an ERA of 3.15, 77 strikeouts, and a WHIP of 1.03. Andersons

The Cardinals are pitching Dakota Hudson who is 6-5 in his first 11 games. Hudson has an ERA of 4.00, 50 strikeouts, and a WHIP of 1.38. However, his stats at home are much better than his stats away. At home, Hudson has an ERA of 2.62, 25 strikeouts, and a winning record of 4-1.

The MLB line is open at Dodgers -145 Moneyline and Cardinals +125 Moneyline. My pick is the Cardinals at +125. This underdog bet is great odds to make money, if you place a $100 bet the payout is $125.

The reasoning for this pick is that the public is heavy on the Dodgers winning this game and sometimes your best interest is to bet against the public, as Vegas wins most of the time. The Cardinals are coming off three straight wins and Hudson has proven to be a winning pitcher at home, expect the Cardinals to stretch their winning streak to 4.

The Cardinals are looking to make a run for the first place spot in the MLB National League Central and that is why my money is on St. Louis.
