Free Pick Wednesday – 971/972 UNDER 12.5 Houston Astros (Valdez) at Colorado Rockies (Castellani) 7:40 PM CT
Coor’s Field brings very high
totals but Framber Valdez has been an appealing option on the mound for the
Astros. He filled a vital role for Houston last season as a spot starter and
long reliever and so far in 2020 has a 1.90 ERA in nearly 24 innings. His
strikeout-to-walk numbers are excellent and he has kept the ball in the ballpark
while featuring a great groundball rate. The Rockies have cooled off from a hot
start to the season with losses in five of the last six games and have scored
just 18 runs over the past five games combined. In two games in Houston
Colorado managed only two combined runs and over 20 innings these teams
combined for just six total runs the past two days. Colorado has positive
splits vs. left-handers but overall the Rockies have just a .677 team OPS in
the past six games. After a slow start the Astros have climbed back to AL
contention but it has been with pitching, not with the star-studded offense.
Houston has won six straight games, including the past four by a single run.
The Astros have allowed only seven runs combined in those six games, winning
each of the past four games despite only scoring a total of nine runs. On the
season Houston has a team OPS of only .657 vs. right-handers and they have hit
more home runs vs. lefties this season despite 279 fewer at bats. Ryan
Castellani is making his third MLB start and he is an unlikely candidate to be
in the rotation after a rough season at AAA in 2019. That was a short
injury-riddled campaign however and the 2014 2nd round pick has high-ceiling
stuff. So far in 2020 his ERA is 1.04 with a 10.4 K/9. He has been very
fortunate so far as that isn’t a sustainable pace but he could still provide an
effective start against a Houston lineup that shockingly has a worse team wOBA
than the Royals and Giants. The ‘under’ is 13-9-1 in Rockies games this season
and the move to Denver has brought a four-run swing from yesterday’s game that
finished 2-1 in 11 innings with no runs scored until the 10th inning. Both
teams have great bullpen numbers in the past handful of games including a 0.59
ERA for Houston and the great starting efforts so far in this series leaves
most top relief options available today.

Free Pick Thursday: #959/960 UNDER 9
Pittsburgh Pirates (Williams) at Cincinnati Reds (DeSclafani) 4:10 PM CT
Pittsburgh and Cincinnati have both struggled offensively but the problems have been almost exclusively vs. right-handed pitching. The Pirates for instance have a very strong .855 team OPS vs. left-handers but suffer a dramatic decline vs. right-handers with a dreadful .521 team OPS. Cincinnati meanwhile is an above average hitting team vs. lefties as well with a .775 team OPS but falls below .700 vs. right-handers. Trevor Williams had a fortunate 2018 season and regressed last season. He could be poised to land somewhere in the middle as a capable starter this season. So far that has been the case with a 3.52 ERA and a 8.2 K/9. Williams can be a home run risk and home runs tells the story in the disparity of his 2018 and 2019 seasons. The Reds have some power with 27 home runs this season but they have just 19 in 466 plate appearances vs. right-handers and ultimately have a .197 team batting average in those matchups. The Reds have topped five runs in nine innings just once in the past 12 games while since the calendar turned to August Reds pitching has allowed more than five runs only twice. 3-13 Pittsburgh exploded for 13 runs on Friday but has scored six runs in the past two games. A long layoff with games vs. St. Louis cancelled isn’t likely to help the offense while it will provide some rest for the bullpen. Anthony DeSclafani has not allowed a run while allowing only five hits in 11 innings of work in 2020. He turned a corner last season after an uneven start to his career and was a very effective pitcher for the Reds in 2019. His risk for allowing home runs should be minimal vs. Pittsburgh and that is usually his downfall as he has strong command and is capable of strikeouts. Nine seems like a reach for these teams in a righty/righty matchup with two of the better starters for each team.
Nelly’s was on a 10-1-1 NBA run at the Covid Break and we have restarted with a 3-1 record in our picks and opinions so far in Orlando action to close the regular season.

Free NBA Pick for Monday:
#744 Oklahoma City Thunder -6 over Denver Nuggets 3:00 PM CT
With a statement win over Utah to open the restart the Thunder are a team that is being overlooked in the Western Conference. Oklahoma City is now relatively safe from falling to the #7 spot sitting three games ahead of Dallas and ultimately the quartet of Denver, Houston, Utah, and Oklahoma City are all likely to wind up in the 3/6 and 4/5 matchups. With no home court advantage to speak of there isn’t great urgency in the coming weeks for these teams. Denver is at risk to slide from its current #3 spot but the priority for the Nuggets is to get healthy for the playoffs, currently without Will Barton, Gary Harris, and likely still Jamal Murray, or in other words, without 45 points per game from three significant contributors. Andre Roberson is the only Thunder player on the injury report and his role has been diminished this season anyhow. The Thunder actually have a stronger season scoring differential than the Nuggets despite the gap in the standings and Oklahoma City at 20-11 has the second-best road record in the entire Western Conference behind only the Lakers. Denver meanwhile has had its success built on a favorable home court edge at altitude and is just 18-14 on the road this season. Already short-handed the Nuggets are facing a second game in three days after allowing 125 points to Miami on Saturday while for Oklahoma City this is a critical game knowing they have a very tough test ahead on Wednesday vs. the West leaders. The Nuggets and Thunder have split two meetings this season and while the injuries have pushed this line to an elevated favorite spread for a Thunder team that was just -1 in Oklahoma City in February, the unheralded Thunder have more at stake and clear personnel edges in the current formations of these teams.

Free Pick Saturday:
#961 Cleveland Indians (Carrasco) + over Minnesota Twins (Maeda) 6:10 PM CT
This series for the top spot in the AL Central could continue to zig-zag with these teams splitting the first two games of the series. Scoring has been at a premium and more quality pitching should be on its way Saturday. Carlos Carrasco’s promising career was sidetracked last season but he looked like his peak self in his 2020 debut with 10 strikeouts in six innings as the pitching-rich Indians should be in a great position to take back the lead in the Central today. Carrasco was unfortunate in that start with a .385 BABIP but still effectively got the win. Yesterday’s 4-1 loss was a bit misleading as the Indians had plenty of men on base but faltered in some big at-bats while also getting some tough breaks with well hit balls being caught for huge outs. Minnesota used its top four options in the bullpen last night and two of those pitchers threw at least 19 pitches as there could be some wear if either is called on tonight. Kenta Maeda made a successful Twins debut in Chicago but there were some red flags in his numbers last season, including a .243 BABIP to help produce a still mediocre 4.04 ERA in 153+ innings. That was pitching with the Dodgers in a very favorable ballpark with plenty of support. Maeda gave up 22 home runs last season and isn’t the same caliber of strikeout pitcher that Carrasco can be. Even so this line has shifted back to the Twins as a slight favorite after Cleveland was favored on Friday and it will again make sense to take the favorable price with the adjustment. As was the case Thursday, Cleveland has the much higher ceiling starter on the mound yet is the underdog in what may continue to be a back-and-forth series. As formidable as Minnesota’s lineup is, Josh Donaldson will likely sit today and after the big first series, the Twins have scored only seven runs the past three games.

Here is a free pick for Thursday MLB:
#951 Chicago Cubs (Darvish) + over Cincinnati Reds (Castillo) 5:10 PM CT
The Reds lineup got a jolt last night as Nick Senzel and Mike Moustakas returned to action after it was feared that they would be out for weeks. A 9-0 lead was threatened however as Chicago made a run late in the eventual 12-7 defeat. Cincinnati scored 12 runs on only 10 hits and only had three at-bats with runners in scoring position, fewer than the Cubs had last night. Chicago’s bullpen has displayed some problems in the season’s first week but the late innings for the Reds have fared no better and Cincinnati has needed significant relief innings already in this series. Luis Castillo emerged as the Cincinnati ace last season and he pitched well in his 2020 debut with six strong innings, posting 11 strikeouts and allowing only one run. That outing came vs. the lowly Tigers however and Castillo allowed nine runs over four starts vs. Chicago last season including six runs allowed in his most recent two starts vs. the Cubs. Yu Darvish has the best strikeout rate of any active MLB starter and that was on display in his season debut despite a tough luck loss vs. Milwaukee last weekend. He struck out 45 Reds over five starts last season and remains a high ceiling option on the mound, while rarely generating this type of an underdog price since joining the popular Cubs.
