MLB Picks: June 23

By MItchell Blair

If it's Thursday, its afternoon baseball galore as seven of the ten games today are matinee affairs.  

The Dodgers finish a series in Cincinnati.  LA has owned the Reds this year as they are 6-0 against them. Yes, this is one of the top teams in the National League against one of the worst.  What stands out the most for me is the Dodgers dominance against opponents this year.  38 of their 41 victories this year have come by more than one run including their last 10.  Hunter Greene can blow the ball past you as his 29 strikeouts in the last four games will attest, but those strikeouts haven’t turned into wins for the Reds.  One has to put down money on the Dodgers to take this one and take the runline.  

If you are looking for what might be a solid prop bet, see what you can find with Trea Turner.  In his 119 games as a Dodger since being traded from Washington last year, Turner has a hit in 104 of them.  

PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-134) at Sports Interaction

Two American League Central rivals finish a series at Target Field as the Twins battle the Guardians. These two teams play a lot of close games against one another and a lot of games where extra innings are needed. There is some value on the Guardians and some numbers have me pulling in that direction. Cleveland is 4-1 in their last five against a left-handed starter which Devin Smeltzer is.  Cleveland is also playing some of its best baseball of the year as they are 8-2 in their last 10 and 17-4 since Memorial Day which is the 2nd best record in baseball.  I’m going with Cleveland 

PICK: Cleveland +120 at Sports Interaction

The Yankees are back at home as they meet Houston.  I don’t need to tell you about what the Yankees are doing this year. They are 29-7 at home. In the first game of a series; they set the tone as they are 38-13 in their last 51 openers and they are 41-12 when they are the favourite. With the big bats that will be on display in this series like Alvarez, Altuve, Judge and Stanton, one has to think this one will be over the 8.5 number that has been set.  Taking the Yankees to win this year is never a bad idea and there is good money for them to grab another “W”, but there is a better investment opportunity if you take the over which is where I’m going even though the starting pitching matchup features two guys who have had very good seasons in Framber Valdes and Jameson Taillon.  

PICK: Over 8 (-110) at bet365
