MLB Free Pick : Shutout Streak Shot Down
Perfection was working well for the Dodgers. They blanked the Padres in all three games and started to do the same with the Giants on Thurday. Then the roof caved in. Heck LA even had four runs going into the bottom of the fifth. It was then that Alex Wood started to have problems. When he gave in some runs, the flood gates burst open with San Fran winning in a 12-6 romp. While this is only one game, the Dodgers are one of the more mentally fragile teams out there. No one doubts their talent but a little adversity like this could have the coming out flat against the Giants on Friday.
San Fransisco’s lineup is talented but even better they are resourceful. They can extract hits where few other teams can. Bunts and bloops were their bread and butter yesterday. This set up the plate for Hunter Pence. Dodger Joc Pederson really got a hold of one and hit a titanic blast to close the gap 7-6. With the bases loaded, Pence went deep to clear the bases. Now with the Giants being a -121 favorite tomorrow, which team is the correct one to invest in.
Ross Stripling is going to make his major league debut for the Dodgers. He takes on Matt Cain who could not regain that 2012 16-5 magic. His home runs per nine innings has gone way up these last two years. Both these pitchers can give up a ton of runs. The total is 8 at near -125. This is a good price and qualifies as our HRWager MLB Free Pick of the Day. Good fortune in this 10:15PM start.
