We brought you home yet another Major League Baseball winner on Saturday as the LA Dodgers continued their domination of the hapless San Diego Padres. We have taken advantage of some soft lines on the Dodgers this season as we only lay -137 odds against this bad Padres lineup. We liked left hander Ted Lilly’s history against San Diego and it matched up as the perfect best bet on Saturday as we loaded up on LA and hopefully you did too. We stayed away from the Dodgers today as the oddsmakers have finally adjusted properly and made them -235 favorites. So we look elsewhere and have found the best pick on Sunday from Major League Baseball and it will come from the west coast afternoon game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants. The Pirates and Giants will begin from San Francisco at 4PM Eastern Time and it’s the MLB Package delivering the live national television coverage. With our MLB top play today we will play on the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants to play under the total of 7 runs. We took the line from Oddsmaker sportsbook.

The Giants will send right hander Ryan Vogelsong to the hill on Sunday. Vogelsong was a money pitching at home at AT&T Park where he compiled an ERA of just 2.15 and a WHIP of 1.17 in 109 innings pitched in 16 starts. The Giants bullpen has not allowed a run at home this season.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have been a woeful offense in the 2012 season. The team hits a mediocre .180 on the season and push across just 1.7 runs per game. In this road stand they are batting just .171 and produced 1.4 runs per game with 44 strikeouts in 158 at bats. In their weekend series with the Giants both games have played to under the total and under is the case for Pittsburgh on this road trip as they have played five straight to the under. The reason they have played so many unders is the fact they can’t but have gotten decent enough pitching to keep the scores low. Case in point today’s Pirates starter Kevin Correia threw six innings in his first start of the season against the LA Dodgers on Tuesday and allowed just one earned run and four hits over six innings of work. The teams have played to two straight unders this season and they went under in six of their seven meetings in 2011. Bet the under today and before you do read about the best sports book review.
