MLB Top Picks for Sunday, May 6th

By Rich Crew, Expert Handicapper

Today we have a trio of games that have caught our eye with the Baltimore at Oakland, Miami at Cincinnati and LA Angels at Seattle game all making our pick list.

Orioles at Athletics Prediction

BAL: Alex Cobb, OAK: Andrew Triggs

Orioles starter Alex Cobb comes into this game off his best outing of the season recording a quality start on the road against the Angels. That may be a sign that he turned the corner after three dismal starts to begin the season, but I’m not going to bank on that. The Athletics counter with Andrew Triggs who has been in out this season and has pitched poorly in two of the last three times he's been handed the ball. Note that the Orioles starters hold a career .417 BA against him in 12 at-bats.

Pick: Take the OVER 9 BEST LINE: Intertops

Marlins at Reds Prediction

MIA: Dan Straily, CIN: Brandon Finnegan

Neither team has been putting up a lot of runs in recent games, and Miami has been an UNDER bettors' best friend going 1-7 versus the O/U line in their eight ballgames and the Reds on a three-game UNDER streak. Starting pitching can change that result, and we have a pair of starters that fit the bill having not shown that they can get the job done. The Marlins Dan Straily has just the one start this season, and he didn't impressive allowing four runs over four innings, and he doesn't have the back numbers against today's line-up (.306 BA in 12 ABs) to suggest a turn around today. The Reds Brandon Flannigan has zero quality starts in four outings this season, and he brings home stats of 0-1 with a 6.28 ERA into the game.

Pick: Take the OVER 9.5 BEST LINE: BetOnline

Angels at Mariners Prediction

LAA: Shohei Ohtani, SEA: Felix Hernandez

The Angels send out Shohei Ohtani to make his fifth start, and while he came out the gate strong with quality starts in back to back games against the Athletics, he is still raw. Ohtani struggled mightily in the preseason and may have returned to that form after two sub-par performances going two innings allowing three runs to the Red Sox and then following that up with 5 1/3 innings against the Astros getting tagged for four runs on seven hits and walking five. Mariners starter Felix Hernandez looked out of form earlier in the season but has rebounded nicely with three quality starts in his last four games. He hasn't dominated the Angels hitters, but he does have legit stats holding the line-up to a career .242 batting average over 326 at bats. Fernandez at home getting money? Count me in.

Pick: Take the Seattle Mariners +113 BEST LINE: 5Dimes

How to Bet Baseball

Moneylines - The most common of baseball bets. Beautiful too, as they create a situation where you can win less than 50% of your bets and profit by betting underdogs!

Totals - The easiest wager to beat in all of sports betting. There's a reason why sportsbooks have lower limits on over/under bets!

Runlines - A wager that creates a point spread where a team is either -1.5 runs or +1.5 runs. Underdog run lines are a great bet for game in which you predict a slim margin. Favorite moneylines pay well and are great bets for potential blowouts.

Alternative Runlines - Turn a favorite into a +2.5 underdog! Turn an underdog into a -2.5 run favorite. You better know what you're doing before betting these lines or your bankroll will resemble the action of a craps table.

Parlays - This type of bet is the reason many bookies drive cadillacs. Big risk; big payouts!

Prop Bets - Similar to totals, these are easy to beat if you do your homework. Avoid the ones that look easy though as they're surely sucker bets.

Futures - A great bet for recreational bettors who only want to spend a few bucks and have something to root for all season. There's a big payout if you're right!

Season Wins - Bet on teams to go over or under the posted total. Fading public opinion can make you money with this type of wager. Especially with public teams.
