Free MLB Pick Atlanta Braves vs LA Dodgers

Lefty Urias gets the start for the Dodgers today. The left-hander was solid down the stretch for L.A. and has carried that over to the postseason. Urias threw eight innings in the playoffs and allowed just one unearned run on four hits while striking out 11.

Braves right-hander Wright didn’t have a good regular season, pitching to a 5.21 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP, but he was brilliant in his postseason debut. Wright shut out the Marlins over six innings on just three hits while striking out seven in the divisional round.

Don’t write off the Dodgers just yet. Los Angeles showed a lot of fight in Game 2. They seemed to come to life late in the last game. Don't forget, they were the best team in the regular season by far, leading the MLB in wins (43) and run differential (+136). Now they hand the ball to a hot lefty in Urias, while the Braves counter with Wright, who, outside of a very good start here or there, has not performed great this season. The Dodgers will pose a much bigger challenge for Wright.

Urias was 5-0 with a 2.86 ERA & Wright 3-4 with a 4.50 ERA. A weird stat I found while handicapping is the fact that Urias was 5-0 in night games and Wright went 0-4 in night games this year. So, let's call this game a twi-nighter. The Dodgers will carry the momentum they built at the end of Game 2 into this one and ride it to a big win. It's gona take a lefty to get the Dodgers right. Take them by a couple of runs.
TAKE: LA DODGERS - 1.5 RUNS - 110

MLB PICK SAN DIEGO vs LA DODGERS

The Dodgers have been rolling and my earlier fear of postseason collapse has not materialized. So will I get caught up in the switcheroo tonight. Hope not, Kershaw has been dominant against the Padres with a career mark of 21-7 with 277 striketouts. That's an average of almost 10 strikeouts a game and obviously he didn't go the distance in all of those games or maybe none of those games. I'm certainly not going to buck that trend. TAKE: LA DODGERS - 1.5 RUNS

NY Yankees at Cleveland Indians

I’m loading up on the pinstripes. Masahiro Tanaka is on the hill, and I’d much rather side with his playoff experience than Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco, who is making just his third career postseason game. Either way the pressure will be
on Carrasco, as his team will either be 0-1 in this series, and facing elimination, or 1-0 and having to face an angry Yankees lineup. Tanaka, in either situation, is more suited to handle the pressure with a stellar playoff career to his credit. The right-hander owns a 1.76 ERA with 37 strikeouts in eight playoff starts dating back to 2015. He has stifled opponents to a .157 average in the playoffs. TAKE: YANKEES -125

Free MLB Pick: Houston at Texas

This is an intriguing matchup in Arlington Texas, of two young starters that have both shown flashes of greatness. Jose Urquidy has not allowed more than 2 earned runs in any of his four starts this year and most likely will be called upon to pitch in the postseason. Kyle Cody has made seven appearances for the Rangers, with the last four as a starter slowly going deeper into games. These two faced off on 9/15, with Urquidy getting the 4-1 victory when he allowed 1 run on 3 hits while striking out 7. Line at this time is Houston -177, a bit steep, therefore my recommendation is to
Take: Houston - 1.5 runs at -105.

Free College Football Pick: Army vs Cincinnati

Cincinnati is a solid football team and the Bearcats have been solid defensively. Cincinnati bullied little Austin Peay, but Army’s suffocated their opponents, allowing just 7 points in two games (including a Louisiana-Monroe team can sure score points in bunches. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw another tight game. The line opened at 11 and jumped up 14 as of this writing. After all, I'm an Army vet and my high school had the same knickname LOL. Cadets infantry kills clock and keeps this one under the generous number. Note that the underdog is 4-0 ATS last four meetings. I’ll take the points and the Black Knights in this one.

Free NFL Pick Seattle vs Atlanta

The FALCONS are the play as slight home dogs in the season opener. Both teams made several key changes on the defensive side of the ball to improve on last year’s poorly-ranked units.
The Seahawks are still led by the strong quartet of QB Russell Wilson, RB Chris Carson, and WRs Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, but look for Atlanta’s improved defensive line to make life more difficult for Wilson than it was in this matchup last year. We're going to back

Eastern Kentucky vs Marshall

New coaching staffs and new philosophies on both sides of the ball, it’s likely going to take a few games for both teams to get their offense clicking. EKU actually has a decent defense.

Free MLB Pick: Arizona vs San Francisco

Arizona has been playing better baseball as of late, and they need Robbie Ray to pitch better with some of the other injuries they have had to their pitching staff. Ray walked 6 his last time out but showed he had good stuff as he didn’t allow a hit over 5 innings in a 5-4 win over the Padres. Logan Webb is scheduled to be on the mound for the Giants, and the bullpen will be needed because he hasn’t lasted more than 5 innings in any outing this year. David Peralta (.321), Ketel Marte (.337), and Starling Marte (.351) are leading the way offensively, and I think they will help the Diamondbacks get the win.

Free MLB Pick: Tampa Bay vs NY Yankees

Tampa Bay is 8-1 in their last 9 games overall and 6-1 in their last 7 road games while the over is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games as a road favorite. New York is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall and 47-14 in their last 61 home games. Snell hasn’t been great in his career against the Yankees with an ERA just under six and a 1-5 record in 11 starts at Yankee Stadium as well as a 4.50 ERA in five starts against the Yankees last season. Masahiro Tanaka’s posted a 10-4 record in his career against the Rays and while the Rays come in rested,
