MLB | Blue Jays vs Yankees
Play on: Blue Jays -104 at 5Dimes
Game Analysis

I'm recommending a play on Toronto as the Jays look to take the rubber match with New York. The Jays will face C.C. Sabathia this afternoon.  The veteran hurler has struggled in his two home starts this season, which falls right in-line with what he has done at home for the last few seasons. Sabathia really struggled in the Bronx in 2015, finishing with a 5.45 ERA & 1.49 WHIP in 14 starts. He allowed nearly 1 1/2 HRs per 9 IP in those starts and a BAA of nearly .290. Sabathia's been even worse through his first two home starts in 2016.  The Jays have knocked the right-hander around the last four times they faced him and we expect more of the same today.  J.A. Happ counters for the visitors and brings a solid 1.21 WHIP with him.  Happ has allowed three runs or less in eight of his nine starts this season.  The right-hander shut down the Yankees in a 7-2 Toronto win in April and he's posted fantastic numbers in five road starts on the season.  We'll back the Blue Jays as they look to defeat the Yankees for the 10th time in their last 14 meetings. Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.

MLB | Cardinals vs Nationals
Play on: Nationals -133 at BMaker
Game Analysis

Jack's Free Pick Thursday: Washington Nationals -133

The St. Louis Cardinals are coming off a huge home series with the hated rival Chicago Cubs in which they lost two out of three games.  Now they have to travel clear to Washington, and this is clearly going to be a tough spot for them mentally Thursday.

The Nationals stay home after a 3-game set with the Mets last series.  I really like the young Joe Ross, who is the most underrated starter on the Nationals' rotation.  He has gone 3-4 with a 2.89 ERA in eight starts this season to really hold his own.  Ross gave up one earned run in 6 innings of a 6-1 road victory over the Cardinals earlier this season.

Mike Leake hasn't exactly had a great first season in St. Louis.  He has gone 3-3 with a 4.07 ERA in nine starts this year.  Leake clearly doesn't enjoy facing the Nationals, going 3-4 with a 5.14 ERA and 1.393 WHIP in 10 career starts against them.  He gave up five earned runs in 7 innings of a 4-5 loss to the Nationals earlier this season.

The Cardinals are 3-8 in their last 11 during game 1 of a series.  St. Louis is 0-6 in its last six road games vs. a team with a winning home record.  The Nationals are 5-2 in Ross' last seven home starts.  Washington is 4-0 in its last four meetings with St. Louis.  Bet the Nationals Thursday.

MLB | Brewers vs Braves
Play on: Braves -122 at 5Dimes
Game Analysis

10* FREE MLB PICK (Braves -122) 

Atlanta is worth a look here as a small home favorite against the Brewers. I know the Braves are a miserable 2-19 at home this season, but they simply can't continue to be that bad at Turner Field. They have an excellent shot at winning at home tonight, as they should have a clear advantage on the mound with Matt Wisler going up against Wily Peralta. Wisler has a 2.98 ERA and 1.012 WHIP in 8 starts, while Peralta has a 6.99 ERA and 1.921 WHIP in 9 starts. As bad as the Braves' offense is, they should be able to get to Peralta in this one. Give me Atlanta -122!

MLB | COL vs BOS
Play on: OVER 9.5 -110
Game Analysis

1* Free Play OVER Rockies/Red Sox.

A couple of struggling starters face off in this interleague contest, making the OVER a very legitimate investment opportunity. The Rockies turn to Jon Gray (1-2, 6.75 ERA) who was rocked for nine runs off eight hits and three walks over 3.1 innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday. Unfortunately for Gray, a date on the road is not what the doctor ordered to get back on track as he’s already 0-2 with a ballooned 6.06 ERA away from friendly confines this year. The home side counters with Clay Buchholz (2-4, 5.92) who gave up four runs off five hits and four walks in a 4-2 loss to Cleveland on Friday. Buchholz has walked 24 batters this season and that’s nearly four walks per nine innings of work. Note that the veteran has been particularly horrible at home this year as well, going 1-3 with a deplorable 5.66 ERA. Consider a second look at the OVER in this one.

MLB | MIL vs ATL
Play on: UNDER 8 +100
Game Analysis

We went to the well last night with the under in this series and will return to it on Thursday. Matt Wisler is 2-3 with a 2.98 ERA and a WHIP of 1.012 in eight starts with five of them going under the total. The good thing about Wisler is how deep he goes in games which helps prevent an Atlanta bullpen meltdown. He has allowed just six runs in his last three starts. Milwaukee entered Wednesday night hitting .180 in their last seven games and .218 on the road. Wily Peralta has some ugly numbers with a 6.99 ERA in nine starts for the Brewers. He has made two decent starts his last two times on the road allowing five runs at the Mets and Marlins over 11 innings and change. Last year he held the Braves to one hit and two walks over four innings in Atlanta. Overall he has a 1.23 ERA in four starts against Atlanta. The Braves offense is pretty poor hitting .232 at home while averaging less then three runs per contest. The Brewers pen actually has good numbers as a unit.

MLB | BAL vs HOU
Play on: UNDER 8.5 -120
Game Analysis

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach MLB Free Pick UNDER 8.5 runs -120 in Houston vs Baltimore @ 8:10 PM ET Thursday - The first two games in this series have both stayed under the total and for Houston, they have now had 6 unders in their last 7 games. Based on this pitching match-up Thursday, I look for more of the same tonight. The Orioles Kevin Gausman has a 2.70 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP in his 6 starts this season and has the added edge against Houston in that the Astros lineup has never faced him. Lance McCullers is making just his third start of the season for Houston but he was very impressive in shutting down the Rangers in his first home start of the new year. In his last two home starts, McCullers has held the opposition to just 2 earned runs in each start even though he went at least 6 innings in each start and notched a total of 14 strikeouts. Also, in his only career start against the Orioles, McCullers was dominant in a complete game where he allowed just 1 earned run on only 4 hits while walking none and striking out 11 in his 9 inning gem. Last season McCullers went 4-1 with a 1.86 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in his 10 home starts for the Astros. The young right-hander held opponents to a paltry .188 batting average when pitching in Houston. The Astros bullpen has a 2.08 ERA at home and the Orioles pen has a 2.17 ERA on the road so far this season. This one shapes up to be a low-scoring tight battle all the way through. Consider a small play on UNDER 8.5 runs -120 in Houston as it is my Free Pick for Thursday. Best of luck, The Bulldog

MLB | White Sox vs Royals
Play on: White Sox +143 at Bovada
Game Analysis

Dave's Thursday Free Play:

1* on Chicago White Sox +143

The Key: The White Sox are going through their worst stretch of the season in which they've lost 3 straight and 9 of their last 12.  That has them undervalued right now, while also motivated to put an end to this skid.  I like the price we are getting with Chicago tonight as +143 underdogs to the Royals.  Miguel Gonzalez is rounding into form here of late, going 0-1 with a 3.30 ERA in his last three starts.  He gave up 2 earned runs and 6 base runners over 6 innings against the Royals on May 21 in his last start.  Danny Duffy hasn't had great success against the White Sox, sports a 3.44 ERA in 10 lifetime starts against them.  He has given up 7 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings in his last 2 home starts against Chicago.  I simply believe the price is right to take a shot with the Sox today considering the pitching matchup is very evenly matched.  Take Chicago.

Dave finished as the #1 Ranked Overall Capper in 2012 by a LANDSLIDE! He has put together a 2351-2046 Overall Run that has his $1,000/game investors up $73,820! He delivered a 2-0 Wednesday SWEEP with wins on the Cavs -10.5 and Blue Jays -108! Dave also finished ranked as the #1 NBA Capper in 2011-12 while putting together a 577-516 NBA Run over the long haul! He is in the midst of a 151-121 Run on NBA 7* Top Plays as well! Come get your hands on his favorite play Thursday in the form of his 7* Thunder/Warriors *TOTAL* Annihilator for only $34.95! He pinpoints the winning total in Game 5 tonight behind TWO 100% O/U Angles in his game report! Dave's selection is guaranteed or tomorrow's NBA picks are FREE!

Play on: UNDER 8.5 -120
Game Analysis

5/26 05:15 PM MLB (961) CHICAGO WHITE SOX VS (962) KANSAS CITY ROYALS Take: UNDER Reason: Your free play for Thursday, May 26, 2016 is in the MLB scheduled contest between the Chicago White Sox and the defending champion Royals in Kansas City. Chicago's offense has dipped during their 3-8 run and now they head out on the road. Their pitching is strong, No. 5 in baseball with a 3.31 ERA, No. 2 in the AL. 31-year old righty Miguel Gonzales starts here and is off a 2-1 loss to Kansas City, allowing 2 runs, no walks, 8 Ks. He threw 73 of 107 pitches for strikes Saturday. The under is 7-2-1 in the White Sox's last 10 road games vs. a left-handed starter. Kansas City has been disappointing on offense, #26 runs scored, #23 in on base percentage and 18th in slugging. But they've been winning with great pitching and defense. 27-year old lefty Danny Duffy (2.12 ERA) has thrown well, being converted back to a starter. His team is 35-17-1 under the total when Duffy starts, including 26-10-1 under the total at home. Play Chicago/KC Over the total.
