MLB Odds, Picks & Predictions: Friday June 22nd

With the entire league in action Friday night, it’s a good a time as ever to start making some picks. The Houston Astros had their 12-game win streak snapped on Wednesday, and look to start a new streak hosting Kansas City. The team that ended that streak, the Rays, go from one hot team to another. They’ll host the Yankees this weekend, with CC Sabathia taking the mound for New York against Ryne Stanek.

MLB Picks & Predictions

With 15 games, it’s important to keep your action in check. So here’s our disclaimer: Don’t be a degenerate.

Dodgers -135 over Mets

The Mets are home after a rough series in Colorado, hoping they brought their Colorado bats back with them. The Mets scored 32 runs over a four-game series, but only managed one win. Alex Wood is dealing with a hamstring, but he’s only allowed three runs in his last two starts. The Mets have been awful against lefties this season, and while the bats were hot at Coors, they’ve really struggled to score at home. Cody Bellinger has two career at-bats against Mets starter Zach Wheeler, and he’s taken him deep both times.

Rockies vs. Marlins over 11 runs

It’s a massive number, and we’re still riding with it. Wei-Yin Chen is 1-3 with an ERA over eight on the road, and Jon Gray has surrendered at least four runs in three straight home starts. Remember, the Mets were destroying the ball in the previous series, so the Rockies bullpen has seen a sizable workload over the last week. The Marlins have quietly won six of their last 10, even if it was beating up on the Giants and Orioles. There are enough bats on both teams to send this over early.

Twins -110 over Rangers

Mike Minor is one of my favorite pitchers to pick on, and he makes his first-ever start against the Twins on Friday. He’s been able to provide some quality at home, but gets into trouble when he leaves Globe Life Park. The Twins have beaten both David Price and Corey Kluber in the last week, so expect them to put up runs against lesser pitching.
