Tuesday night baseball! A beautiful time for betting action...

Today's matchups provide several betting opportunities. We have run the list of today's games and have pick our favorite Free MLB pick for the betting community.

When the Arizona Diamondbacks meet the Texas Rangers (9:40 PM ET) at Chase Field...we are projected a high amount of runs scored. The game setup is as follows:

Zack Greinke (1-1, 9.31) vs Mike Minor (1-1, 4.63)
ARI ML -147
TEX ML +129
Over/Under 8.5

This matchup looks rip to easily breach the OVER 8.5 runs. Here are several factors that when into our handicapping...

Lets look at Arizona first:

  • Zack Greinke has not been good so far this year...
  • He currently sports a 9.31 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. Not good
  • Will this trend continue tonight? Its very possible...
  • Arizona is allowing the 26th ranked OBP allowed (0.363) and 27th ranked OPS (0.862)...this reflects on their lousy pitching and defense.
  • In head-to-head matchups, the Texas lineup has had success vs Grienke...
  • Andrus, Cabrera, Choo, Pence - they all have .650+ OPS vs Grienke

For Texas:

  • Mike Minor takes the hill sporting a 4.63 ERA...
  • He has pitched decent, but the Texas bullpen has been a mess...
  • Rangers relievers are posting a 1.59 WHIP on the season...if Minor gets knocked from the game - the flood gates will open
  • Offensively, Texas ranks a respectable 10th in On-base % and 11th in runs per game...
  • Defensively, Texas ranks 29th in runs allowed per game. Another sign of poor defense and pitching.

In tonight's matchup, all signs are pointing to both offenses taking center stage. I certainly expect a high scoring game, where both starters could be out before the 5th inning.

Predicted score: Texas 5 - Arizona 7

Best bet: OVER 8.5
