MLB Picks for August 20th

Seattle Mariners @ Houston Astros

Start Time – 1:05 pm EST
Minute Maid Park
Broadcast – Peaco

Houston isn’t getting swept at home by Seattle, especially by a rookie pitcher (Emerson Hancock) who gave up five runs in five innings in his last start. Astros and the Over, please

Bets: Houston -185, Over 9 (+110)

Boston Red Sox @ New York Yankees

Start Time – 1:35 pm EST
Yankee Stadium
Broadcast – MLBN

Bullpen day for the Sox, plus both starters (Josh Winckowski and Clarke Schmidt) got rocked in their last outings. Another home team and the Over pick – the Yankees have to win again eventually, right?!

Bets: Yankees -120, Over 9 (+100)

Toronto Blue Jays @ Cincinnati Reds

Start Time – 1:40 pm EST
Great American Ball Park
Broadcast – BSOH

Both Hyun-jin Ryu and Hunter Greene have been rolling as of late, and these teams haven’t scored much this series (eight runs total over two games), so the Under looks good here

Bets: Under 10.5 (-105)

Philadelphia Phillies @ Washington Nationals

Start Time – 7:10 pm EST
Nationals Park
Broadcast – ESPN, ESPN2

Sunday Night Baseball time, and the Phillies are the obvious choice here (Zack Wheeler vs Trevor Williams), and considering there have been 15 runs scored in each of the past two games, the Over.

Bet: Philadelphia -218, Over 9 (-102)
