Free baseball picksThe battle for the National League Central lead has been a rollercoaster ride all price per head season, with the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates trading places atop the standings all year. That battle will continue this weekend with both teams playing at home, while the Los Angeles Dodgers continue to try and pad their lead in the NL West against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants.

Chicago Cubs @ Pittsburgh Pirates
Sunday, 1:35 PM ET

The Pirates looked destined to pull away in the NL Central on more than a couple of occasions, but the Cardinals stayed right with them and have once again taken over the NL Central lead. Pittsburgh has been excellent at home all year, and will have one of its best arms on the mound when it wraps up its live betting series against the Cubs on Sunday. Liriano is one win off the pace for the NL lead at 16-7, and is sporting a 2.92 ERA. The Cubs are stuck at the bottom of the NL Central and only the Miami Marlins have fewer wins in the NL. Travis Wood has won two of his last three, but didn’t allow a run in both wins and won’t be able to do that again when he faces the Pirates.


MLB Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates - 180

Seattle Mariners @ St. Louis Cardinals
Sunday, 2:15 PM ET

St. Louis has taken back possession of the NL Central lead, but they can’t let up one bit with the pressure on to finish strong and keep Pittsburgh at bay. Rookie Shelby Miller has been a stud in the Cardinals’ rotation all sportsbook reviews season, and he will be looking for win No. 14 on the year after posting back-to-back wins. St. Louis has been excellent at the home and should have no problem giving Miller the run support that he needs with Erasmus Ramirez on the bump for Seattle. The Mariners’ offense has struggled with consistency all season, and Ramirez is sporting a 4.57 ERA.

San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Dodgers
Sunday, 4:10 PM ET

The Giants have dropped from reigning World Series champs and defending NL West leaders to the NL West basement, and the problems have been on both sides of the ball. The San Francisco offense has underachieved all year, and the pitching staff hasn’t been able to bail them out this time around. The Giants have lost each of Ryan Vogelsong’s last three starts, as he has been tagged for three or more earned runs in each of them. He could run in to even more trouble against this explosive Dodgers’ offense, which has managed to help Edinson Volquez win two of his three online sports betting starts since joining the team.
