Erik Underwood’s Free Baseball Picks: 8/3/2012

August 3, 2012


Pittsburgh Pirates @ Cincinnati Reds

This line jumped out at me very quickly.  Cincinnati definitely plays in a hitters ballpark, and will feature two hot offensive teams tonight.  Latos has been ok this year, but will face a tough challenge against this Pirate lineup.  Wandy Rodriguez should be in for a beating tonight against a Reds team that has been hitting the cover off the ball lately.  He has never seemed very comfortable pitching in any ballpark other than Houston, and I think the Reds get to him tonight.  8 seems like a pretty reasonable total to go after an over in this matchup.

Play: Reds/Pirates Over 8 -113, 1.5 units


Josh Hamilton and the Rangers are really starting to swing the bats again

2 Team Parlay – Atlanta Braves/Texas Rangers

The Braves are huge favorites against the Astros tonight, and deservedly so. The Astros are bad enough at home, putting them on the road places them at an even greater disadvantage.  The Braves have been really hot and are executing all aspects of the game well.  I like them to win tonight, I know you’re surprised about that one right?

Texas throws Matt Harrison against a Royals team that is once again out of any playoff conversation.  The Rangers have found their offense a little bit over the last couple games, and I think we will continue to see that tonight.  The Rangers are playing for a first place finish, while the Royals are playing for nothing.  I’ll fade the team that’s out of it against a strong left-hander.

Play: Braves/Rangers Parlay (+118), 1.5 units
