2014 MLB Betting – Picks ForTuesday, June 24

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 6/24/2014 12:40:37 AM

There’s a little more urgency in this baseball season now that the All-Star break is a little more visible for each big-league team. The push to the midsummer break is important throughout the majors.

Game 1:Oakland Athletics @ New York Mets – Tuesday, June 24

The pitching matchup here is a fascinating one for several reasons. First, Bartolo Colon is the New York Mets’ starter, but he had recently pitched for Oakland. Second, Colon did really well when he was a member of the Athletics. He helped guide the team to the playoffs last season and turned back the clock. He was one of the American League’s top ERA guys for much of last season, despite a body that was woefully out of shape and a diet that has been anything but disciplined. That Colon is still surviving in the majors and doing reasonably well, with a 3.88 ERA, is something that remains hard for a lot of baseball fans to believe.

Yet, the bigger surprise in this matchup, bigger than Colon, is on the other side of things. The Athletics send Scott Kazmir to the bump for this game. Kazmir’s career seemed to be lost and adrift a few years ago, as he bounced around various teams and was no better than a number four or five starter. He was a mediocre fourth or fifth starter as well. He lost what he had when he became a top-of-the-line pitcher with the Los Angeles Angels in previous seasons. Yet, Kazmir improved last season with the Cleveland Indians, and he’s become an ace-level pitcher this year in Oakland. Kazmir is in contention for the Cy Young Award, having produced a 2.08 ERA to this point. With Kazmir going up against the Mets’ feeble offense, Oakland should be the choice here.

MLB Betting Pick: Oakland

Game 2: New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays – Tuesday, June 24

The pitching matchup in this game is one in which the Yankees aren’t totally outclassed… but they’re still outclassed. David Phelps goes to the hill for the Yankees with a 3.86 ERA. That’s pretty solid for the American League, and it’s something New York should be content with from a lower-end starter in its rotation. However, Phelps is going up against Mark Buehrle, Toronto’s ace and the owner of a shiny 2.32 ERA. Buehrle is rolling this season after a rocky 2013. The Blue Jays should definitely be expected to win in this situation.

MLB Betting Pick: Toronto

Game 3: Minnesota Twins @ Los Angeles Angels – Tuesday, June 24

Thepitchers in this game are even in terms of ERA numbers. Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson and Los Angeles’ C.J. Wilson are within .09 runs of each other. Gibson has a 3.25 ERA, Wilson 3.34. The non-pitching elements are what should decide this game. The Angels have been getting more production from their order this season and have been able to overcome a leaky bullpen. The Twins have been overachieving this season, but the Angels are a better team overall.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels
