MLB Picks for August 24th
Boston Red Sox @ Houston Astros
Start Time – 2:10 pm EST
Minute Maid Park
Broadcast – MLBN
We get two solid pitchers on the bump here on Thursday – Brayan Bello and J.P. France. However, France has been more consistent, and Houston is the better team, plus they’re at home.
Bet: Houston -125
Texas Rangers @ Minnesota Twins
Start Time – 7:10 pm EST
Broadcast – MLBN
Another solid pitching matchup kicks off the Rangers and Twins series – Andrew Heaney and Pablo Lopez. The Rangers have lost six straight, and Lopez has been more consistent than Heaney, so the home team is the pick once again.
Bet: Minnesota -130
Oakland Athletics @ Chicago White Sox
Start Time – 8:10 pm EST
Guaranteed Rate Field
Broadcast – NSPCH
Let’s go for some plus money here and take a stab at the Athletics. Oakland starter Kent Waldichuk has been rolling, and the White Sox are in disarray, at least in the front office.
Bet: Oakland +124
Cincinnati Reds @ Arizona Diamondbacks
Start Time – 9:40 pm EST
Broadcast – FS1
Merrill Kelly is on the hill for the surging Arizona Diamondbacks at home. That has to be the pick.
Bets: Arizona -162
