Free Opening Day MLB Expert Picks

New York Yankees Moneyline

Lock in Will’s Pick in 1 Click!

Gerrit Cole has looked pretty good during spring training and gets a matchup with the Giants right out of the gate. Cole is already stretched out and should be able to go 90+ pitches with ease in this one. I don’t think this game is a high-scoring affair, but I think the Yankees have enough firepower to pull out the win on opening day. – Will Priester (chiefjustICE06)

Patrick Corbin Under 4.5 Strikeouts

Lock in Luuch’s Pick in 1 Click!

This thing is absolutely moving. Corbin only covered this number in 11 games last season. He hasn’t thrown any more than 36 pitches in any spring start over the past couple of weeks. Last season, he didn’t crack 80 pitches on opening day. I understand there are some K’s to be had in the ATL lineup, but Corbin’s K rates are awful and there’s always a chance ATL demolishes him. This line should be 3.5 to make me at least think about it and I bet it’s moving there soon. – Justin Carlucci (TheLuuch)

Boston vs. Baltimore Under 9 Runs

Lock in Timothy’s Pick in 1 Click!

I do expect good things from the Orioles this season with their solid core of young hitters. The Red Sox will look different this season, but they still have superstar Rafael Devers on the squad. However, with the weather forecast to be in the 40s tomorrow, I think it might take a little bit for these offenses to get going. Neither of the projected pitchers are complete gas cans and shouldn’t let the game get away from them. Give me the under in this very cold game in Boston. – TastefulTides (Tim Buell)
