MLB Picks: June 09

by Mitchell Blair

We have five afternoon games as well as six games under the lights tonight. When I look at what is on the schedule, the one game that stands out to me is the afternoon matchup featuring the St. Louis Cardinals in Tampa to play the Rays.  

Tampa is starting lefthander Shane McClanahan and while he goes in sporting a 6-2 record with an ERA of 2.10, the Cardinals have been having their way with lefties this season, especially Paul Goldschmidt who is hitting close to .500 against southpaws with Albert Pujols hitting .353 and Tommy Edman hitting 346. In their last 16 games on the road against a lefthanded starter, St. Louis is 13-3. The Rays are favoured, but the numbers show me St. Louis is ready to do some mashing in this one. I love the Cardinals in this game on the moneyline 

PICK: St. Louis ML +169 at bet365

There are a couple of other games that stand out for me.

LA at Chicago White Sox:  The White Sox love interleague play. They are 14-3 in interleague games including a 7-2 mark at home. This is a tough one, but I like the home dog to take this one even though Dodgers starter Tyler Anderson has thrown 26 straight scoreless innings.   

PICK: Chicago White Sox ML +105 at Bet99

After losing to the Twins last night, Gerrit Cole takes the ball for the Yankees as they finish up a series in Minnesota. The Yankees have owned the American League Central over the past couple of seasons sporting a record of 45-14. That is just one of many impressive numbers that they have. I’ll go with the over 8.5 on this one as you can’t keep those Yankee sluggers down for long.

PICK: Over 8.5 at -102 at Sports Interaction
