MLB Picks and Parlays June 20
Tuesday baseball is here, and with a full card, there's tons of value to be found! Game 2 is the theme, as we'll be looking at the San Diego Padres at Chicago Cubs, the San Francisco Giants at the Atlanta Braves, and the New York Mets on the West Coast against the Los Angeles Dodgers, each playing the second in their series. First game kicks off at 7:35pm ET.

MLB Baseball Games Today

It’s Tuesday, and we’ve been blessed with a full MLB card. Not all teams played yesterday, so many are starting their series tonight. The Toronto Blue Jays had a great game, stealing one from the Rangers late to inch back towards that .500 mark.

This week’s hot series has to go to the Diamondbacks and Rockies who have both been playing out of their minds this season. The over .600 teams begin their series tonight, and attempt to gain control of the surging NL West.

Looking back to our last picks, we went a decent 2-1. The Nationals cemented their lead in the NL East with their 7-4 win over the Mets, and the Rangers took no prisoners, scoring 5 runs in the 1st against the Mariners, to beat them 10-4. Our loss came on the Royals, our one dog play. They had no chance from the start, failing both on pitching and offence, to lose 9-0 to the Angels.

For today, we’ll be looking at teams who played each other Monday, because it will give us the best insight on what to expect tonight. We’ll be looking at the Padres visiting the Cubs, the Giants at the Braves, and the Mets against the Dodgers. Let’s get into it.

MLB Picks Today – June 20, 2017

  • San Diego Padres at Chicago Cubs: *Chicago Cubs (-200) at BODOG

The Chicago Cubs can almost reach out and touch their goal of NL Central leader. The Brewers are still on top, but after both teams end their respective series, things might be looking different. Looking for their 3rd win in a row, the Cubs will have that first place slot in mind. While their offense was pretty stagnant last game, scoring only 3 runs, Anthony Rizzo has been exceptional in the leadoff spot. He’s a perfect 5 for 5 with 2 home runs in his first AB as top of the order.

Rizzo will have to get past Jhoulys Chacin (6-5, 5.10 ERA) though. He does have good numbers against his, going 4 for 8 with a home run. The Venezuelan has been pitching better lately though, only allowing 2 runs in his last 2 starts, both wins. He’s only 2-3 with a 3.98 ERA in 6 appearances, 5 of which were starts, against the Cubs. Mike Montgomery (0-3, 2.56 ERA) continues replacing Kyle Hendricks in the rotation. Despite his 0-3 record, his starts have all been no decisions. Against the Padres, he’s 1-0 with a 2.62 ERA.

We don’t usually take picks with such high juice, but this play is a headscratcher. The Cubs have had a difficult time putting away the Padres in the past, losing to them 3 times prior to their win on Monday. They rallied, but only managed to win by 1 on Monday. It’s best we not risk the RL on the Cubs, but also there’s no reason to put money on the weary Padres with their 11-25 road record, ML or RL. The Cubs will most likely take this in a very close affair. 

  • San Francisco Giants at Atlanta Braves: *Atlanta Braves (-117) at BODOG

Losers of 15 in 20, the San Francisco Giants haven’t been the team to bet on. They’re even managing to lose on the RL frequently. In the past 20 games, they’ve scored 2 or less runs a stunning 9 times. The Braves are by no means an elite team themselves, but are still 2nd in the NL East, and have been playing decent ball lately.

Matt Moore (2-7, 6.00 ERA) doesn’t look like he’ll stop the bleeding, as he’s abysmal on the road, going 0-4, with a 9.24 ERA. In his past 6 games, opponents are batting .318 off him. Julio Teheran (6-4, 4.86 ERA) has been on the other side of the coin for the Atlanta Braves. The right hander’s only allowed 1 earned run in his past 2 home starts. Against the Giants, he’s 2-2 with a 3.99 ERA.

There’s absolutely no reason to take the Giants in this spot. The line even seems a bit of a trap, but we’ll gladly bite. Look for this game to be a lot closer than expected, whether high or low scoring, but the Braves should still eke out a win here. 

Coming off a 10-6 to Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Monday, the New York Mets will try to end their drought, in which they’ve lost 4 of 5. Their offense has definitely been resurgent, as they hit well in their last game, but a few bounces steered the game in LA’s direction. That’s not to take away from Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner’s dominant performances.

Robert Gsellman (5-4, 5.50 ERA) takes the mound for the Mets, and looks to make up for breaking his win streak, and falling apart against the Nats last Thursday, allowing 7 runs in 5 innings. Surprisingly, he is 2-1 on the road though. The Los Angeles Dodgers start Brandon McCarthy (5-3, 3.14 ERA). He hasn’t faced the Mets since 2014, but in 2 starts against them, he’s 0-2 with a 3.55 ERA.

There’s no denying the LA bats are hot as fire right now, but don’t overlook the Mets. They scored 4 home runs off the seemingly untouchable Clayton Kershaw, and almost made a game out of it. The Dodgers have better batting, but the Mets have more power. Also, taking into account the pitchers, and how they’ve fared against the opposing teams, the Mets on the RL has a lot of value.

If you’re looking for a parlay to sprinkle a bit on, take all three of these plays. This parlay pays +415 at Sports Interaction

  • *Atlanta Braves (-125)
  • *Chicago Cubs (-215)
  • *New York Mets +1.5 (-105)
