MLB Picks: May 23

By Stefan Luciani

It is a beautiful holiday Monday for the May 24 weekend, which means it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy a cold drink in hand, dreading that unfortunately work is back on tomorrow. But in the meantime, why not make some money on your day off?

The Toronto Blue Jays are coming off taking two of three against the Cincinnati Reds, in a series where their starting pitching looked very strong. The offence has still yet to come around to a place I’m sure many would want it to, but they take a trip down to St. Louis to play back to back games against the Cardinals. The Cards are in the top five for batting average, total hits, and RBI’s among all of the big leagues.

I think it’s definitely going to be more of an offensive battle, one I’m not totally sure the Jays will find themselves coming out on top of, but that means one thing; runs, runs, and more runs.

The o/u is currently set at 7.5 on most sports books, with Caesars having it at o7.5 @ +105. I don’t really feel that warrants much of an internal debate, so folks, that will be my pick of the day today. Trying to play it a little safer because following a hot start, it’s safe to say my record hasn’t been stellar the last couple days. Tide’s got to change at some point…right?

Pick: Blue Jays vs Cardinals o7.5 @ +105 (Caesars).

Other Notable Games:

New York Mets ML @ +126 (FanDuel)  vs San Francisco Giants: The New York Mets are still one the hottest teams in all of baseball. They have won five of their last seven, and continue to be an offensive powerhouse. San Francisco comes into this contest looking to snap a four game skid. The Mets are underdogs because David Peterson is on the mound making his first start in three weeks. Doesn’t change much for me though. Ride Mets baby.
