MLB | Giants vs Diamondbacks
Play on: Giants -175 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

My free play is on the SF Giants at 9:40 ET.

Arizona Diamondbacks host the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night in the second contest of a four-game series at Chase Field. San Francisco won Monday's series opener 11-8 (10 innings) and owns MLB's best record at 67-39. That gives them a 'modest' 34 1/2-game lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks, who check in with MLB's worst record of 33-74. San Francisco owns MLB's second-best money line mark (plus-$2,326 at $100/game) and its third-best run differential mark (plus-122 runs). In stark contrast, Arizona's moneyline record of minus-$3,368 and run-differential mark of minus-170 runs each ranks dead-last among MLB's 30 teams. 

Tuesday's pitching matchup features a pair of past All Stars, who are seemingly well past their primes. Johnny Cueto (7-5, 3.84 ERA) will take the mound for the Giants, while Madison Bumgarner (5-6, 4.87 ERA) gets the start for the D'backs. Cueto began his career with the Reds back in 2008 and had two notable seasons, going 19-9 with a 2.78 ERA in 2012 and 20-9 (2.25 ERA) in 2014, finishing second in the NL's Cy Young voting that season. He was shipped to KC right before the trade deadline in 2015 and helped the Royals win the 2015 World Series. Cueto won Game 2 of the 2015 World Series 7-1 (KC took the series in five games), becoming the first AL pitcher to throw a complete game in the World Series since Minnesota's Jack Morris in 1991. Cueto signed with the Giants prior to the 2016 season and went 18-5 (2.79 ERRA) that first season. However, he fell to 8-8 (4.52 ERA) in 2017 and then went just 6-7 with a 4.49 ERA over a modest 25 starts from 2018-20.

Bumgarner was part of a San Francisco starting rotation that helped the Giants win World Series crowns in 2010, 2012 and 2014. His 2014 postseason was legendary, as he made seven appearances (six starts), with an ERA of 1.03 over 52.2 innings with a KW ratio of 45-6. He was named the 2014 World Series MVP, finishing the series with a 2–0 record and an 0.43 ERA (0ne ER allowed over 21 innings). However, his last good season was back in 2016, when he went 15-9 with a 2.74 ERA. He was just 19-25 with San Francisco from 2017-19 and then signed as a FA with Arizona in 2020. he made nine starts in 202, going 1-4 with a 6.48 ERA (team was 3-6).

Cueto is 7-5 with a 3.84 ERA in 17 starts this season, with the Giants going 9-8 in his starts. Bumgarner is 5-6 with a 4.87 ERA in 15 starts, with the D'backs going 6-9. The highlight of his 2021 season came back on April 25 when Bumgarner pitched seven no-hit innings in the second game of a doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves. However, because the game was only seven innings long, Bumgarner was not credited with a no-hitter. Cueto is 0-1 with an 8.10 ERA in two 2021 starts vs the Diamondbacks but I will NOT ignore that he's 11-4 with a 3.45 ERA in 20 career starts against Arizona (teams are 15-5). The Giants will 'LOVE' beating their former teammate and Cueto is coming off a strong outing last Thursday, when he pitched 5.2 scoreless innings in a 5-0 win against the Dodgers.

Good luck...Larry

MLB | SFO vs ARI
Play on: UNDER 9½ -106
Game Analysis

Yesterday's complimentary selection was on these same two teams to finish 'over' the total. That game would finish with 19 runs, an 11-8 final. Today, however, we're working with a pair of veteran starters, both of whom are in much better current form than yesterday's starters were. Cueto blanked the Dodgers for 5 2/3 innings last time out, a 5-0 final score. Eight of his past 10 starts have finished with eight or fewer combined runs. He's got a 2.30 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP his past three starts. Not to be outdone, Bumgarner has a 2.00 ERA and 0.83 his past three. Last time out, he allowed just four hits, through seven complete. The final score was 3-2. These two have had some memorable pitcher's duels against each other in years past. Consider the Under.

Play on: OVER 8 -112
Game Analysis

These two teams can still deliver some offense. You can probably count on Wheeler for a low run outing , but Corbin?   Based on his last outings, and the present state of the Nationals relief corps, over 8 runs is very likeable.  Take Phillies and Nationals to go OVER the total!

MLB | Red Sox vs Tigers
Play on: Tigers +131 at SC Consensus
Game Analysis

Jack's Free Pick Tuesday: Detroit Tigers +131

The Detroit Tigers have quietly gone 42-33 in their last 75 games overall despite being an underdog in almost every game.  They have been one of the best money makers in baseball this season.  And they are being overlooked as home dogs to the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of this series Tuesday.

The Red Sox come in struggling with four straight losses.  They are 1-5 in their last six games overall and scoring just 2.7 runs per game during this stretch.  It won't get any easier against Detroit's Wily Peralta, who is 3-2 with a 3.76 ERA and 1.131 WHIP in eight starts this season.

Peralta is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two home starts this season while pitching 9 2/3 shutout innings.  He'll be opposed by Garrett Richards, who is one of the weak links in Boston's rotation.  Richards is 6-6 with a 5.15 ERA and 1.658 WHIP in 20 starts this season.

Detroit is 11-2 in its last 13 home games.  The Tigers are 8-2 in their last 10 games following a win.  Bet the Tigers Tuesday.

Game Analysis

Dave's Tuesday Free Play:

1* on Mariners/Rays OVER 8

The Key: This is a pretty low total because both the Rays and Mariners have underrated lineups.  The Rays have scored 5 or more runs in 15 of their last 24 games overall.  The Mariners have scored 3 or more runs in 10 straight games and 15 of their last 16 games overall.  Both starting pitchers come in struggling in this one.  Yusei Kikuchi is 0-2 with a 7.31 ERA in his last 3 starts for the Mariners.  Luis Patino is 1-1 with a 4.86 ERA in his last 3 outings for the Rays, and 1-2 with a 4.73 ERA in 6 starts this year overall.  The OVER is 6-1 in Mariners last 7 games.  The OVER is 4-1 in Rays last 5 games.  The OVER is 6-0 in the last 6 matchups in Tampa Bay.  Take the OVER.

This looks like a good bounce-back spot for the Los Angeles Angels tonight after losing two in a row and four of their last five.  Jose Suarez is 1-1 with a 3.37 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in two road starts this season for the Angels.  Los Angeles should get its bats going against Jordan Lyles, who is 5-7 with a 5.15 ERA in 20 starts this season for Texas.  Lyles is 3-3 with a 6.67 ERA in seven previous starts against the Angels.  He gave up 7 earned runs in 2 2/3 innings in his last start against the Los Angeles this season.  Give me the Angels.

Game Analysis

Braves vs Cardinals Free Pick August 3, 2021

The Atlanta Braves have alternated wins and losses through their last 10 games and they are 16-5 in their last 21 games following a loss. With the Braves coming off a defeat to Milwaukee on Sunday, I think this looks like a good spot to back the Braves to snap back from a loss again. 

Cards' left-hander Jon Lester (3-5, 5.02 ERA) will make his first start since coming over from Washington. He'll face a Braves team that is

4-1 in its last 5 road games vs. a left-handed starter and 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in St. Louis.
Atlanta left-hander Max Fried (7-7, 4.32 ERA) has posted a 2.84 ERA through his last three starts. The Cardinals are 1-5 in their last 6 games vs. a left-handed starter.

Free pick on Atlanta Braves.

Game Analysis

ASA FREE PLAY ON Chicago White Sox -1.5 Runs -120 over Kansas City Royals, Tuesday at 8:10 PM ET We’ve hit the fade button on bad road teams like Colorado/Arizona/Texas/KC/Pittsburgh with a number of our picks this season and with solid success overall. We’ll pull the trigger again on Tuesday night and side with the Chicago White Sox on the run line. Kansas City has lost 3 straight road games and this has dropped the Royals to 17-34 in road games on the season. 43 of Kansas City's 59 losses this season have come by 2+ runs. 51 of Chicago's 62 wins have come by 2+ runs. The White Sox are 19-10 against lefties this year. Tonight Chicago's lineup will face a southpaw that has struggled on the road this season. Kris Bubic has an 8.19 ERA in his road starts this season. In fact, if a bettor simply played the home team in all of Bubic's starts this season that bettor would have a 9-1 record. The Royals lefty has been strong at home but weak on the road. With plenty of run support, White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease should notch a dominant home win here. Cease has a 2.44 ERA at home this season and Chicago has gone 7-3 in his 10 home starts. The White Sox have been up and down of late but they are first in the division and the much better team in this match-up plus at home and off a momentum-boosting win and at a reasonable -120 price range on the run line. Take Chicago White Sox -1.5 on the run line.

Game Analysis

Is there anything that can propel you to step in front of Walker Buehler, who just finished July going 3-0 in five starts with a 1.67 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 32 1/3 innings?

 Yes. Taking the Astros at a huge plus price like this.  The Dodgers haven't been sharp going 6-8 in their last 14 games. Houston has a better overall record than LA, the second-best mark in baseball.  The Astros aren't exactly pitching a stiff either going with Lance McCullers, who is 8-2 with a 3.23 ERA. McCullers has a 1.64 ERA in 11 regular-season lifetime innings facing the Dodgers.  Much was made of the Dodgers picking up Max Scherzer at the trade deadline. The Astros didn't draw nearly that kind of attention. Houston, though, quietly upgraded its bullpen picking up four relievers, including closers Kendall Graveman and Yimi Garcia.  (Editor's note: Stephen Nover is on a 69 percent MLB hot streak the past five days on his premium plays and has three premium plays today in addition to this free selection.)

FREE PICK - Colorado Rockies -132
RATING: 30*
ROT#: 910

I'll take my chances with the Rockies as a mere -132 home favorite against the Cubs. Chicago has lost 5 of 6 with the only win coming with Kyle Hendricks on the mound. This is a team that is going to really struggle down the stretch when Hendricks isn't throwing. They just don't have the offense or the pitching to be competitive on a consistent basis. 

Rockies aren't a great team either, but they are a very strong 33-20 at Coors Field this season. Zach Davies hasn't been horrible this season, but I just don't see him doing enough to keep the Cubs in this game. 

Colorado will have the red-hot Kyle Freeland on the mound, who has a 2.37 ERA and 1.053 WHIP over his last 3 starts. Freeland also owns a 2.75 ERA in 3 career starts against the Cubs. Give me the Rockies -132!
