MLB Picks for August 8th

Washington Nationals @ Philadelphia Phillies

Start Time – 4:05 pm EST
Citizens Bank Park
Broadcast – NSPPH

Bet: Over 8.5 (-108)

The knee-jerk bet here would be to take the Phillies at home against the lowly Nationals, but Washington has been surging, improbably (four straight wins), and the -298 moneyline is too steep. Let’s go with the Over, as both teams have been scoring a buttload of runs of late.

Atlanta Braves @ Pittsburgh Pirates

Start Time – 7:05 pm EST
PNC Park
Broadcast – SNPT

Bets: Atlanta -162, Over 9.5 (-115)

Atlanta has been very, very good to me with my picks (no shock considering they’re the best team in the league). Both of Tuesday’s pitchers, Yonny Chirinos and Mitch Keller, have been knocked around lately, so let’s hammer that Over.

Houston Astros @ Baltimore Orioles

Start Time – 7:05 pm EST
Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Broadcast – TBS

I’ll gladly take the league’s second-best team, the Baltimore Orioles, as a home dog here. They’ve won four straight games, and Grayson Rodriguez has only given up five runs over his last 17.2 innings.

Bet: Baltimore +105


San Diego Padres @ Seattle Mariners

Start Time – 9:40 pm EST
T-Mobile Park
Broadcast – MLBN

The skidding Padres vs. the surging Mariners, plus it’s a bullpen day for San Diego. Seattle starter Logan Gilbert has been sold his last two starts.

Bet: Seattle -155
