We delivered a nice winner on Saturday with our best betting pick as the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays play easily under the total of seven runs. Wei Yin Chen came in with another solid outing as this Orioles lefty starter allowed no earned runs to the weak Rays hitting lineup over seven innings. Chin has now allowed just one earned run total over his past two starts working 12 2/3rd innings. We had starting pitching insurance in this game as each club sports a solid bullpen. We needed that because Tampa Bay starter Jeremy Hellickson gave up four earned runs over four innings. The Baltimore and Tampa Bay bullpens combined for nine scoreless innings of baseball on Saturday night. The best betting pick from Sunday’s Major League Baseball card comes from the NL game between the Chicago Cubs and LA Dodgers. The Cubs and Dodgers begin from Dodger Stadium at 4PM Eastern Time and the MLB Package will have the live national television broadcast.

The Cubs poor offense has reared its ugly head in this series as the team has been held to just one run in each of the two games played in the good pitchers park at Dodgers Stadium. Joe Blanton makes his first start for LA today and you must upgrade him against this bad offense. In his last start for Philadelphia on July 28th the LA right hander allowed just two earned runs total in seven innings against the Braves. Chicago starter Justin Germano is coming off a pretty good outing against the Pirates. Two struggling offenses leads us to the under today at the sports books.
