2014 MLB Betting – Picks For Friday, June 6

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 6/5/2014 11:30:30 PM

There’s a change in the way the Major League Baseball season is proceeding for various teams. The march to October is full of various ups and downs. It’s up to struggling teams to find a way to change their direction and establish better habits, with the All-Star break only five weeks away.

Game 1: Philadelphia Phillies @ Cincinnati Reds – Friday, June 6

The pitching matchup in this game offers two big names, but only one ace. Cole Hamels used to be an elite pitcher, but he has not been able to recover what he used to have on the Phillies’ great playoff teams of past years. Hamels enters this game on Friday night with an average 4.01 ERA, nothing to really get too excited about. On the other hand, Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto is acting like a top-quality pitcher. He’s posted a dominant 1.68 ERA to this point in the season. You can count on him to deliver strong starts when he takes the mound. Cincinnati’s offense is not reliable, but Cueto is, and against an average Hamels, that should be enough for the Reds in their own ballpark.

MLB Betting Pick: Cincinnati

Game 2: New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals – Friday, June 6

These two teams are both trying to find a spark, playing close to .500 ball for the first two months of the season but not being able to play really well for more than a few days at a time. In this game, New York will send starter Chase Whitley to the hill with a strong 2.37 ERA. Whitley hasn’t been pitching the full season, but he’s been effective. His release point is hard to pick up, and his tall frame enables him to whip the ball toward the plate. Jeremy Guthrie is the starter for Kansas City. His ERA stands at four runs even. Neither offense is particularly strong, but Whitley appears more likely to offer up a quality start than Guthrie does at this point. Go with the Yankees, even though they’re on the road in this one.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Game 3: Los Angeles Dodgers @ Colorado Rockies – Friday, June 6

The pitching matchup here is one in which bettors are probably going to rush to the window to make a play on the Dodgers. Hyun-Jin Ryu is the starter for Los Angeles. He has a 3.09 ERA and has been a very steady member of a quality starting rotation. One should expect Ryu to do what he normally does: not allow big innings and keep Colorado contained. The Dodgers should feel happy about their starter in this game. For Colorado, the starter is Eddie Butler, who is making his first ever big-league start. First-time starters can be hard for hitters to read, but Coors Field is a terrible place for a pitcher to break into the majors. The Dodgers should be able to figure out Butler after the first time through the order. They should be able to win this game on the road.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers
