MLB Picks: June 19

By Rally Kapz

Man, what a great season so far if you happen to be a New York baseball fan. The Yankees have the best record in baseball at 49-16 and continue to beat up opponents across the league. The Mets meanwhile, have the second-best record in MLB at 44-23 and have assembled a team with serious postseason aspirations. Both teams have a wealth of riches on offense and defense. They score runs in bunches, ranked first and second in that category (NYM with 340 and NYY at 331).

On Father’s Day Sunday, both NY teams are in action, with the Yankees continuing their series in Toronto and the Mets hosting the Marlins. The Yankees have looked in full control of the first two games vs. the Jays, racking up 2 wins and barely breaking a sweat in outscoring the Jays 16-3. On Sunday, the Jays will send Yusei Kikuchi to the mound vs. Luis Severino. To say Kikuchi has struggled with his command is an understatement, and he has also been hurt by the long ball, giving up 9 HRs in just over 50 innings pitched. That’s a scary prospect, with the bat barrels of Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Anthony Rizzo combining for 56 home runs. Severino has been solid so far this year and I think he’ll get the run support needed to get the Yankees the win today.

Pick:  NY Yankees ML -135 (Bet99)

So, am I taking both New York teams? Not so fast. As mentioned, the Mets face the Miami Marlins today. The Marlins, based on runs scored and runs allowed, are better than their record indicates, and today, pitcher Sandy Alcantara gets the start. Alcantara has been the Marlins best pitcher by a long shot and among the best pitchers in baseball this year. He has racked up a 6-2 record, while posting the league’s second-best ERA at 1.68. He’s been a workhorse for the Marlins and leads all of baseball in innings pitched, even earning a complete game, a rarity in today’s game. So, yes, the Mets are really good but if I can get Alcantara at this value (+117), I’ll take it every day.

Pick:  Miami Marlins ML +117 (Sports Interaction)
