Our picks for today's MLB action

After a quiet Monday we have a full slate Tuesday, with all 30 teams in action. With some interesting games on the slate, where can we find some value today?

Here are Today’s MLB Picks:

Rays @ Red Sox

This is a repeat of the fantastic pitcher’s duel that ended the series down in Tampa Bay. Both David Price and Charlie Morton pitched superbly that day, as they have both done largely this season. Morton has an incredibly 2.60 ERA with a 12-3 record, and Price has been strong with a 3.66 ERA and a 7-4 record. At home this year Price has been superb with a 2.89 ERA, which surprisingly is bettered by Morton’s 2.45 ERA on the road. Yes, both offenses are hot right now and the weather will favor hitting, but with these two pitchers on the mound the under with plus odds it is hard to look anywhere else.

1u – Under 8.5 Total Runs @ -105

Twins @ Marlins

Given that one of these teams has 64 wins and the other has 41 you would not expect this to be this intriguing of a matchup. However, the two pitchers on the mound make it that way. Jake Odorizzi was absolutely storming through the 2019 season, but since June 16th he has really struggled. His ERA has risen by nearly two full runs in that time and he has allowed 29 earned runs in 32 2/3 innings. However, now pitching in Miami against arguably the worst offense team in the majors I am banking on him to bounce back somewhat. For the Marlins we have the impressive rookie in Zac Gallen who despite a 1-2 record has a 2.76 ERA and has allowed just nine earned runs in six outings. This will be one of his toughest tests, but in the pitching friendly confines of Marlins park he should have a chance to restrict the Twins.

1u – Under 8 Total Runs @ -110

Mets @ White Sox

Once again, I am going to pick against the weather and make it three under picks to kick off this article. I am a huge believer in the talent of Reynaldo Lopez and his last three starts demonstrate just that talent, with four earned runs allowed and 25 strikeouts in his last three starts and 21 innings. Noah Syndergaard is another talented pitcher, but his form has been mixed this season. However, he has allowed just six earned runs, while also striking out 25, across his last three starts and 21 innings. If this total was at eight, I would likely not be playing it, but the current form of these two take me towards the under. Throw in the White Sox averaging 2.2 earned runs per game for the last five, and the Mets 4.6 themselves and the under is the right way to go here.

1u – Under 8.5 Total Runs @ -105
