2014 MLB Betting – Picks ForThursday, June 19

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 6/18/2014 10:58:27 PM

The Major League Baseball season has shown that a few teams that have been struggling over the past few years are capable of bouncing back, and it has also shown that teams which have been successful in recent years aren’t guaranteed success right now.

Game 1:Los Angeles Angels @ Cleveland Indians – Thursday, June 19

The Los Angeles Angels have had a much better season through two and a half months than they did in each of the past two seasons. The Angels have ceded the spotlight and the playoff appearances in the American League West to the Oakland Athletics and the Texas Rangers in recent years. They are now showing signs of being a player once again in the American League. If the season ended today, they’d be in the one-game wild card playoff. The Angels are getting better hitting from their stars, particularly Albert Pujols. The bullpen is still a concern, but with the batting order being a much more reliable source of big hits compared to 2013 and 2012, the Angels are showing a kind of resilience that had long been missing from the clubhouse. This team is more unified, and it looks like a group that is going to be a contender all the way through the season, into the final week of September. Take the Angels over a Cleveland team that has been better of late, but is not getting the level of starting pitching it needs to win the American League Central.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels

Game 2: Cincinnati Reds @ Pittsburgh Pirates – Thursday, June 19

The pitching matchup in this game is one that does not promise certainties. The Reds are going with Homer Bailey, who has pitched no-hitters in his career but is just as capable of bombing each time he takes the mound. Bailey is a very inconsistent pitcher with great talent but a habit of going through severe swings and variations in his level of play. This maddeningly uneven part of Bailey’s identity is why he has a 4.68 ERA and is underachieving at this stage of the regular season.

Bailey’s opponent is Jeff Locke, who was part of Pittsburgh’s playoff season last year and performed at a very high level from start to finish. The Pirates haven’t been as good this year, and that’s partly because Locke hasn’t been as good this year. Yet, his ERA is 3.98, several tenths of a run better than the mercurial Bailey. Take Pittsburgh here.

MLB Betting Pick: Pittsburgh

Game 3: Toronto Blue Jays @ New York Yankees – Thursday, June 19

TheBlue Jays still lead the American League East. Why have the New York Yankees not caught them? The answer is simple. The Yankees are nine games over .500 when Masahiro Tanaka starts for them, and they’re seven games under .500 when other starters go for them. In this game, David Phelps is the Yankees’ starter. Do you really want to take New York here? Probably not.

MLB Betting Pick: Toronto
