FREE MLB BETTING PICK OF THE DAY
- New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays upset the Yankees 4-3 as +170 underdogs in the opening game of a three-game series at Rogers Centre Tuesday night. Toronto put an end to its six-game losing streak, while the Yankees suffered their second straight defeat, so the visitors will be keen to close down this series in a strong fashion.
J.A. Happ will take the mound for the Yankees, and the left-hander is unbeaten in his last five outings, while the Yankees are 8-1 in his previous nine starts. Happ is 5-3 in 12 starts this season with a 4.83 ERA and a 1.22 HIP and 2-0 in his three starts against the Blue Jays.
On the other side, Edwin Jackson will get the ball for the hosts, and he’s 0-3 this season with a 13.22 ERA and a 2.20 WHIP, while the Blue Jays lost all four contests in that span. Jackson is 2-7 in his 13 starts and eight relief appearances against the Yankees.
While Happ is playing very well at the moment, Jackson is obviously far away from good form. Edwin will have a difficult time against the Yankees who are averaging 5.31 runs per game (6th in the league), so take the visitors to cover the spread. Eight of the Blue Jays’ last nine losses came by two or more runs.
- New York Yankees -120 over Toronto Blue Jays by two or more runs
FREE NHL BETTING PICK OF THE DAY
- St. Louis Blues vs. Boston Bruins
After a tough 7-2 defeat in Game 3 at home, the Blues bounced back in Game 4 to beat the Bruins 4-2. Now, the series heads to TD Garden in Boston where the Bruins dominated their opponents in the opener, while the Blues won Game 2 in overtime. Considering the trends, the Bruins should win tonight.
However, the Stanley Cup is so unpredictable, and the Blues certainly stand a chance. Whoever wins tonight’s clash will be one step away from the title, so both teams will be under huge pressure.
The Bruins played very well at home this postseason, winning four of their last five games at home by two or more runs, while they are 14-6 in the last 20 outings at TD Garden. Take the Bruins to cover at some attractive odds because the Blues will play without goalie if they trail in the last few minutes of the game.
- Boston Bruins +185 over St. Louis Blues by two or more goals
FREE MLS BETTING PICK OF THE DAY
- FC Cincinnati at New York City
FC Cincinnati is struggling in its first MLS season, suffering ten losses in the first 15 outings along with three wins and a couple of draws. They are sitting bottom of the Eastern Conference, and Cincinnati is the most inefficient team in the league with just 12 goals scored, allowing 28 in a return.
On the other side, New York City lost only one game in its 13 outings along with four wins and eight ties, scoring 18 goals in the process and surrendering 15 in a return. The Pigeons are sitting at the 6th spot of the Eastern Conference standings nine points ahead of Cincinnati and eight points behind the leader Philadelphia Union.
New York City is listed as a massive favorite to beat the newcomers. The Pigeons are arguably a better team than the Orange and Blue and should satisfy the odds. In five games at home so far, New York City has recorded just one win along with four draws, while Cincinnati has earned only four points in nine showings on the road with a 6:19 goal difference.
Take the hosts to win by two or more goals. Cincinnati is on a six-game losing streak away from home, and four of those six losses came by two or more goals.
- New York City +100 over FC Cincinnati by two or more goals
