Baseball Free Picks: August 24th, 2013

Baseball Free PicksAll it took was a couple of pitches inside on Alex Rodriguez and one to actually hit him and suddenly the biggest story in baseball right now turned to a new chapter. The New York Yankees are still 8.5 games back of the American League East leading Boston Red Sox, but Sunday’s win seemed to provide a spark they hope will ignite a positive price per head run continuing with a series against the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend.

Oakland Athletics @ Baltimore Orioles
Saturday, 4:05 PM ET

The Orioles are closer to Boston and Tampa Bay in the AL East standings, but will have a tough time closing the gap with the Oakland Athletics in town fighting for top spot in the AL West. Baltimore had lost three-straight starts with Scott Feldman on the mound before getting back on track with an online sports betting win over the Colorado Rockies in his last start, and will hope to capitalize on an Oakland team traveling across the country for this weekend series.

The Athletics are just two games above .500 on the road this year, and it has cost them position in the AL West just one-half game back of the Texas Rangers entering this week. Oakland will have Tommy Milone back on the bump, but he has allowed nine runs in his last 8.1 innings of work to bring his ERA to 4.30 on the season.

 

My Pick: Baltimore Orioles – 140

Boston Red Sox @ Los Angeles Dodgers
Saturday, 4:05 PM ET

The Red Sox really did let that Sunday night game get away from them, the implications of which Ryan Dempster probably should have considered with Boston fighting for top spot in the AL East. Dempster will get the nod again Saturday against the red-hot Dodgers, and will be in tough to bounce back from that sportsbook reviews loss. Hyun-Jin Ryu finally had his streak of nine-straight wins snapped his last time on the mound, but as long as the offense can get to Dempster he should have no problem getting back on track if he at least comes close to matching his 2.95 ERA in this game.

My Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers - 150

New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays
Saturday, 4:05 PM ET

The Yankees would like nothing more than to see the Dodgers handle Boston while they take care of their own sports betting business against Tampa Bay, with a good chance that CC Sabathia will start Friday and an open spot for who could get the start versus Chris Archer in Saturday’s game. Archer had been excellent until lately, as the Rays are just 1-3 in his last four starts while dealing with a nagging forearm injury. New York will need quality starting pitching from whoever gets the start, and if they can solve Archer they could find themselves clawing away at their AL East deficit.

My Pick: New York Yankees + 130
