Game Analysis

Jack's Free Pick Tuesday: Cleveland Guardians -148

The Cleveland Guardians will come back highly motivated for a victory Tuesday after getting swept in their double-header with the lowly Detroit Tigers Monday.  The Guardians have a big advantage on the mound that should lead them to a win in Game 3 tonight.

Cal Quantrill is 4-4 with a 3.72 ERA and 1.252 WHIP in 14 starts this season for the Guardians.  Quantrill is 1-0 with a 3.48 ERA in two career starts against the Tigers.  He pitched 7 shutout innings in a 6-1 victory over Detroit in his most recent start against them.

Drew Hutchison is simply a fill-in starter for the Tigers today.  He is 0-1 with a 5.19 ERA and 1.499 WHIP in two starts this season and has posted a 4.96 ERA and 1.411 WHIP In seven seasons in the big leagues.  Hutchison is 0-1 with a 7.94 ERA and 2.207 WHIP in three career starts against the Guardians.

Cleveland is 63-23 in the last 86 meetings.  The Guardians are 41-19 in their last 60 meetings in Detroit.  It's bounce back time today.  Bet the Guardians Tuesday.

MLB | Guardians vs Tigers
Play on: Guardians -148 at circa
Game Analysis

Like a bad penny, Drew Hutchinson is back in the big leagues. The Tigers had enough of Hutchinson when they designated him for assignment on May 11. Hutchinson declined the trip back to the minors to become a free agent.

No team signed Hutchinson, who has a seven-year career big league mark of a 4.96 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. Desperate for starting pitching, the Tigers re-signed Hutchinson giving him his third stint with them.

Not a surprise, but Hutchinson is well below par this season going 0-1 with a 5.19 ERA and 1.499 WHIP in two starts. He gives a bad name to the term innings-eater, which is the best the Tigers can expect from him.

Hutchinson is an autofade for me. The Guardians certainly weren't pleased being swept two games by the Tigers during Monday's doubleheader. Even with that sweep, Cleveland still has won 41 of the past 60 times in Detroit.

Guardians starter Cal Quantrill is a sizable upgrade on Hutchinson with a 4-4 record, 3.72 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 14 starts. He has a 2.76 ERA in five career appearances versus the Tigers that includes two starts.

The Guardians' strength is their pitching, particularly a deep bullpen. Detroit ranks last in runs and homers. Cleveland's problem is offense. Getting to face Hutchinson should alleviate that concern, though.

(Editor's note: Stephen Nover is on another baseball hot streak going 11-3-1 on his last MLB premium plays, including 5-0 on his last five. Stephen has three MLB premium plays today in addition to this free selection.)

Tuesday's Free MLB Pick is on the Detroit Tigers as a +140 home dog against the Cleveland Guardians. Detroit has already won the first two games of this series as a dog. They swept yesterday's double-header, winning 4-1 as a +130 dog and 5-3 as a +115 dog. No way should Cleveland be this big of a favorite on the road with how they are struggling to score. Guardians have totaled just 7 runs over their last 4 games. Bet the Tigers +140!

Dave's Tuesday Free Play:

1* on Boston Red Sox -123

The Key: I like the price we are getting on the Boston Red Sox as short home favorites over the Tampa Bay Rays today.  The Red Sox are 31-13 in their last 44 games overall.  They are almost fully healthy right now in their lineup and hitting the ball well.  The Tampa Bay Rays have injuries throughout their lineup that has held them back recently.  They were just shut out 4-0 by the Red Sox yesterday.  They will have a hard time getting anything off Nick Pivetta, who is 8-5 with a 3.23 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 16 starts this year, and 4-2 with a 2.79 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 7 home starts.  Pivetta is 8-1 with a 1.95 ERA in his last 11 starts while yielding only 16 earned runs in 74 innings.  He sports a 2.95 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 4 lifetime starts against Tampa Bay.  Take Boston.

Play on: Nationals +145 at Ace
Game Analysis

This is a play on the WASHINGTON NATIONALS for our Tuesday Free Play. Washington is coming off a 2-5 homestand that includes five straight losses, the last four coming against Miami who has dominated the Nationals this season by winning 12 of the 13 meetings. They hit the road where they are 15-22 but are in the positive in profits and this is a matchup where the offense can get right. They have averaged only 3.0 rpg over their last four games and have hit well on the road as they are batting .268 which is tops in the National League and second overall in baseball. Paolo Espino will be making his fifth start of the season and he comes in with a 3.93 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over his first four starts after being brilliant out of the bullpen. Washington is 6-1 against the money line in road games after scoring four runs or less in three straight games this season. The Phillies had Monday off following a series win against the Cardinals over the weekend to improve to 5-3 over their last eight games. Philadelphia is 22-20 at home and it sits eight games behind the Mets in the National League East. The offense remains in the top ten in most categories but they have been inconsistent after losing Bryce Harper to a fractured thumb. They turn to Cristopher Sanchez who is making just his second start on the season and we do not expect much here as he has a 5.84 ERA in all games when he goes more than one inning. Philadelphia is 13-23 against the money line after allowing one run or less over the last two seasons. Here, we play on road underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175 off a loss to a division rival as a favorite, starting a pitcher who walked one or fewer hitters each of his last two outings. This situation is 59-39 (60.2 percent) since 1997. Play (903) Washington Nationals

Play on: OVER 9½ -107
Game Analysis

Espino has allowed HR's in five of his last six starts. Last time out, he served up two long balls in 4 1/3 innings. The final score was 8-7. Four of his past six starts have reached the 15-run mark. Sanchez has made two starts, one this year and one last. In this season's lone start, he allowed two runs (and a HR) in just 2 1/3 innings. That was a lot better than last season's lone start. That happened to come against these same Nationals and saw him allow four earned runs while only recording one out. The final score was 11-8. Speaking of high-scoring games, all four of Espino's previous starts vs. Philadelphia finished with a minimum of 13 combined runs. This one should also hit double-digits. Consider the Over

MLB | Cubs vs Brewers
Play on: Brewers -120 at BetVegas
Game Analysis

My free play is on the Mil Brewers at 8:10 ET.


The Milwaukee Brewers entered the current season having made the last four postseasons, winning the NL Central in 2021 and were favorites to do so again in 2022. The Cubs finally broke the 'jinx' by capturing the 2016 World Series but after a 71-91 season in 2021, there was "No Joy in Wrigleyville" entering 2022. The Brewers were 32-18 through Memorial Day but lost 15 of their next 23. Milwaukee opened a three-game home series with the Cubs on July 4th, winning 6-3 (10 inn.) and have now won SEVEN of nine to reach 47-35 and lead the Cards by three games in the NL Central. The Cubs have struggled almost all season and at 32-48, are 14 games behind the Brewers in the division.


The Cubs will turn to veteran right-hander Kyle Hendricks (4-6, 4.76 ERA) on Tuesday, while the Brewers counter with rookie Jason Alexander (2-0, 3.82 ERA). Hendricks is NOT the pitcher he once was and will be the Brewers for the fourth time this season. He is 0-1 (team is 2-1) with a 6.14 ERA in his first three vs Milwaukee this season, giving him a 10-8 record with a 3.54 ERA in his 30 career starts vs the Brewers (Cubs are 16-14). Hendricks has won his last two starts, giving up just two runs in 13.1 innings (1.35 ERA) but in my view, he's no longer a starter one can count on. Alexander will make his sixth start since being called up from Triple-A to bolster the Brewers' injury-riddled rotation. He has pitched in relief his last two times out. Alexander made his big-league debut on the road against the Cubs on June 1, giving up three runs (two earned) in seven innings. He did not get the decision in the Brewers' 4-3, 10-inning loss. The 'jury is still out' on Alexander (it's NOT good news that opponents are batting .328 against him) but Hendricks has not won in Milwaukee since April 8, 2017 plus the Brewers are 18-8 in their last 26 home games against the Cubs. Make that 19-8 after tonight. Cubs Lose! Cubs Lose!


Good luck...Larry

*action on pitchers* MLB Tuesday Free Pick OVER 8.5 in Pittsburgh Pirates vs New York Yankees @ 7:05 ET - My biggest concern here is the weather. I like this play no matter who the starting pitchers are but just hope they can get the game in. The Yankees are the best team in baseball and will score their fair share of runs. The Pirates continue to be a scrappy team that is scoring decently and particularly when at home. That said, I feel we have good value here with a low total. The Yankees are scoring an average of 5 runs per game and no other team in MLB has topped the 400 run mark on the season like they have. New York is off a shutout loss Sunday but had scored an average of 6 runs per game in going 6-1 prior to that loss. The Pirates are also off a home shutout loss Sunday but had averaged 6.4 runs in their last 9 home games prior to that one and had won 6 of 8 as a host prior to that. You can see why I like this play no matter the pitchers but I will also mention that Taillon struggled often in the month of June and Quintana also struggled last month when he faced better-hitting teams. That is certainly the case here with facing the Yankees. Free Pick OVER 8.5 in Pittsburgh
