We delivered a nice winner with our best betting pick on Sunday as the LA Angels pound the Baltimore Orioles. The Angels power hitting lineup continued their barrage against left handed pitching and the Orioles anemic offense sustained its lack of scoring this season. Our top MLB pick from Friday comes from the National League West matchup between the San Diego Padres and LA Dodgers. The Padres and Dodgers returns to play following the All Star break tonight from Los Angeles at 10PM Eastern Time with national television coverage by the MLB package. With the top selection tonight we will play on the San Diego Padres and LA Dodgers to play under the total of 6 ½ runs. The odds from this Major League Baseball pick are courtesy of Oddsmaker sportsbook.

The pitching matchups tonight will pit left hander Clayton Richard facing the LA Dodgers ace left hander Clayton Kershaw. Richard has pitched well of late sporting a WHIP of 0.88 over his past three starts. Kershaw has pitched well against the Padres as the hurler has a career ERA of 2.40 in his 15 starts. The Dodgers cling to a ½ game lead in the NL west based on their lack of offense. The club is pushing across less than three runs per game over their past seven games. The San Diego hitting lineup has struggled this season with a team batting average of just .225. The long break will impact the timing of the hitters so bet the under at online sports books.
