MLB Free Pick | Marlins at Dodgers
I had a tough time deciding who to back tonight. Anyone I liked had odds too big to bet on, and the rest were just too dicey to put my money on. I decided to go with the Miami Marlins at Los Angeles Dodgers tonight, a team with the most wins in the Majors versus a team with the least wins in the National League.
Game: Miami Marlins (36-58, 48-46 ATS) at Los Angeles Dodgers (64-35, 47-52 ATS)
When: 10:10 PM ET, Friday, July 19th, 2019
Where: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
Current Line: MIA +234 LAD -274 Total: 7.5
TV Coverage: FS Florida, SportsNet LA
Probable Pitchers: Marlins RH Zac Gallen (0-1, 4.24 ERA) vs. Dodgers LH Hyun-Jin Ryu (10-2, 1.78 ERA)
After losing the World Series the last 2 years, Dave Roberts and his Dodgers are on a mission this year. Their 64 wins are 4 better than the Astros and Yankees. Both have the second most wins in Majors at 60.
Hyun-Jin Ryu is having an incredible year, and was rewarded with the starting nod in the ASG. He has been particularly great at home. In 9 starts at Dodger Stadium, Ryu is 7-0, allowing only 43 hits in 63.2 innings, while allowing only 6 earned runs. Those numbers equate to a 0.85 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP.
The Marlins send rookie Zac Gallen to the mound. The 23-year-old righty has held his own, allowing 3 runs or less in his 4 starts, although he only lasted 2 innings on July 2nd against the Nats. His command needs some work, giving 10 free passes in 17 innings of work.
The Dodgers are only 47-52 ATS, but this is a true David vs. Goliath matchup here tonight, and I expect the Dodgers to roll over the Marlins tonight.
LA has scored 530 runs to the Marlins’ 338, and their overall run differential is +152 to -85. My pick is the Los Angeles Dodgers on the Run Line.
MLB Free Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers Run Line -1.5-130

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…
