Free MLB Betting Picks For Thursday

The Rockies should be sending at least seven right-handed bats against Anderson this evening at Coors Field. The Rockies strikeout at the seventh-lowest mark in all of baseball. Coors Field isn’t just good for the ball to travel further, it also suppresses strikeouts.  Anderson pitched in Coors Field almost exactly one month ago and only had two strikeouts over six innings pitched. 

Anderson’s pitch-to-contact style is not a good fit for a game at Coors, and even though I don’t think he will get roughed up, he shouldn’t go over this total. 

These LAD home run odds appear to be unavailable at the moment. If they open back up on the betting board, at anything close to these numbers, I’d strongly consider a wager!

We simply cannot ignore the Dodgers today in a matchup against Jose Urena at Coors Field. The matchup might already be baked into the line, and the value might be a little light, but my money is still going to be on these two to hit a homer this evening. 

Jose Urena has been lucky this season. Ignore any thoughts that he has had a respectable season. His SIERA is over 5.00 and his strikeouts are around 12% with a walk rate over 11%. The Dodgers are going to be putting up multiple runs this evening and hitting the ball, so feel free to take the over total bases props or RBI props. However you want to bet your money, just make sure to get exposure to the Dodgers tonight. Betts and Freeman are my favorite picks to go deep.

Tyler Alexander is a low strikeout, high fly-ball pitcher, who is having a career best HR/FB ratio. In my opinion, that is not sustainable when looking at his previous seasons. His fastball barely eclipses 90 mph. Bichette and his teammates should have no issue hitting the ball hard against him. I was a little surprised that I was able to get a line this big on any of the Blue Jays’ top hitters. Bichette hasn’t had a homer in two weeks, but that’s just the variance of baseball.
