MLB Picks for August 18th
Toronto Blue Jays @ Cincinnati Reds
Start Time – 6:40 pm EST
Great American Ball Park
Broadcast – APLTV
Cincinnati starter Brett Kennedy has a career 6.42 ERA in the majors. Toronto’s Jose Berrios hasn’t been that sharp over his last couple of starts, so let’s go Over.
Bets: Toronto -162, Over 10.5 (-105)
Philadelphia Phillies @ Washington Nationals
Start Time – 7:05 pm EST
Broadcast – MASN
Michael Lorenzen is coming off pitching a no-hitter, so we should be fading him here, but he’s up against the Nationals and Joan Adon. Phillies it is, but Over.
Bet: Philadelphia -198, Over 9.5 (-102)
Pittsburgh Pirates @ Minnesota Twins
Start Time – 8:10 pm EST
Broadcast – BSN
Bullpen day for the visiting Pirates, while the hometown Twins have Pablo Lopez on the bump, who has given up one run over his last 19 innings.
Bets: Minnesota -225
Arizona Diamondbacks @ San Diego Padres
Start Time – 9:40 pm EST
Broadcast – MLBTV
Brandon Pfaadt has given up seven runs over his last 10.1 innings; Seth Lugo 10 over his last 8.1. Sounds like an Over to me.
Bet: Over 9 (-102)
