2014 MLB Betting – Picks ForThursday, June 12

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 6/11/2014 11:03:52 PM

The middle of June is upon us, and so the various teams in Major League Baseball that have not mounted a strong charge to this point in the season are faced with the need to generate more consistency. A flat June could really put teams in trouble before the All-Star break.

Game 1:Los Angeles Dodgers @ Cincinnati Reds – Thursday, June 12

The Los Angeles Dodgers have gotten healthy in Cincinnati this week, taking the first few games of this midweek series. In the fourth and final game of this series, the pitching matchup definitely works in favor of the Dodgers. Los Angeles will send one of its two aces, Zack Greinke, to the mound in this game against Cincinnati’s Alfredo Simon. Greinke checks in with a 2.62 ERA. It’s true that Simon has been very good for the Reds this season, posting a 3.15 ERA, but he’s no Greinke. The Dodgers have a horse on the mound, one of the elite pitchers in baseball. The numbers say that this is an even matchup, and it might very well turn out to be as much. However, Greinke’s experience and his proven quality in the big leagues should give bettors reason to go with Los Angeles here.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers

Game 2: Washington Nationals @ San Francisco Giants – Thursday, June 12

The pitching matchup in this game is a fascinating one. Blake Treinen is the starter for the Nationals, while Tim Hudson is the starter for the Giants. These guys are coming at this game from opposite ends of the spectrum. Treinen has three career starts and seven career appearances. He has a 1.78 ERA, but one wonders if that number is going to hold up as he accumulates more innings and starts. Treinen is 25 years old and is just beginning to learn about how to pitch at the big-league level. His opponent is a 38-year-old veteran who is still going strong. Tim Hudson, who made a name for himself in the San Francisco Bay Area as a dominant pitcher with the Oakland Athletics, has come back to the bay to deal darts for the Giants. He has a 1.97 ERA and has been far more than the San Francisco organization ever hoped he would or could be at his age, following a nasty injury suffered in 2013 with the Atlanta Braves. Expect Hudson’s experience to win the day here.

MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco

Game 3: Cleveland Indians @ Boston Red Sox – Thursday, June 12

TheCleveland Indians are showing signs of beginning to wake up. The Indians were horrible in April, but they’ve begun to look a lot more like the team that made the playoffs last season. Lonnie Chisenhall is a player the Indians have been expecting a lot from. He has finally turned into the star slugger the Tribe wanted all along. He hit three home runs and drove in nine against Texas on Monday night in a 17-7 win. Given the way the Indians are hitting, they have to look like an attractive betting choice against a scuffling Boston team that has had a hard time finding offense for almost all of the 2014 season.

MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland
