MLB Free Pick | Athletics at Twins
We have a great Sunday of sports action ahead of us. As I write I am watching the final round of The Open, and while none of our guys are in contention, it’s been great golf to watch on a great course, with an Irishman leading the pack. Manny Pacquiao took care of Thurman last night, 10 years his senior and football is right around the corner! What a time to be a sports fan.

My pick today comes from the Twin Cities when the Minnesota Twins host the Oakland Athletics. I watched yesterday’s game in this series, and it was like a playoff game. Great atmosphere, everyone was hustling on every play and A’s fans were rewarded with a 9th inning comeback for the win.
Two pitchers that have been pitching well lately take the mound. For the Twins, Michael Pineda has allowed 3 or fewer earned runs in all but one if his last 12 starts, and has allowed only 1 earned run in 5 of his last 6 starts.
A’s starter Daniel Mengden has always showed he has the goods to be a quality Major League starter, but inconsistency and lack of control has slowed his progression. However, he’s won his last 4 starts, and has held opponents to 3 or few earned runs in 6 of his 9 starts this season.
These two have played to the UNDER in 8 of their last 10. The UNDER is 8-1 in the Twins last 9 and is 9-4 in the A’s last 13. On top of that, the UNDER is 6-0 in the last 6 when Oakland plays Minnesota at Target Field. I like the A’s as the dog here at +121, but my official pick is the UNDER.
MLB Free Pick: Oakland Athletics @ Minnesota Twins UNDER 10.5

Sticking with the NFL on Saturday worked out for us, so let’s give it another try. San Francisco heads to Denver and both starting quarterbacks are expected to see some action. It probably won’t be for long, which will likely have an effect on our outcome. * Increase your bookie business 10 times, all while Read More…
I dipped into this series on Friday night, and although it didn’t come easy, I took the Giants +126 for the win. The Giants had a 7-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th, only to allow 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th. Neither team scored in the 9th, both scored two Read More…
The NFL has been tough on me lately, but I’m going to stick with it for Saturday’s pick. In Week 15 of the 2019 regular season, Dallas and the L.A. Rams will meet in a game that will likely have playoff implications. This preseason Week 2 game is much less important, but it does have Read More…
