Baseball Bet Winners From Top Sports Handicappers

Several of the best sports bet services have free baseball picks for tonight. The real Matt Rivers of check in with a free pick on the Washington Nationals (+180) to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Reasoning: Clayton Kershaw is a phenomenal left-hander who is as good as they come. The guy can strike out a ton of batters and be flat out great. Kershaw may even be just that today and stymie the Nats but to get such a number back against what really is an overall average at best Los Angeles team is enough to give it a go. Matt Kemp is great but that’s about all Don Mattingly has in his lineup. 

Washington has raced out of the gate and every day appears to be more and more legit. I’m not saying that after the full 162 games they are going to win the division but it certainly isn’t as far fetched as just a few short weeks ago. The pitching has been great and the lineup with Werth, Zimmerman, Desmond and others is fairly solid.

Ross Detwiler doesn’t even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Kershaw but give the youngster some credit as he has been very good thus far and I mean very good. The southpaw has allowed only one earned run in his 16 innings in 2012 and is in a pitcher’s park and up against a very average offense.

In the end the blue win this game a lot more than they don’t behind their lefty ace but the Nationals are on-fire and with a red hot pitcher are worth a shot at this hefty price.

Baseball handicapper pick: Washington

Now to the top handicapper in the land, Joe Duffy anchor of

MIAMI (ZAMBRANO -121) Arizona (Saunders)

Go with a home team with a bullpen that averages less than 2.75 innings per game against opponent with an NL starting pitcher whose ERA is 3.00 or better on the season 279-187 +88.8.

Home team 13-4 in Miami’s games including 9-0. In three starts, Carlos Zambrano has 2.84 and WHOP of 0.947. Joe Saunders struggled in both starts to the Marlins  with an ERA of 6.75 and a WHIP of 1.667.

In home/road splits or “location comparison” as we’ve called it, comparing the home teams’ home stats to the away team’s road stats Arizona has a slugging percentage .351 to .403 for Miami.

Bill Tanner agrees. Arizona Diamondbacks @ Miami Marlins

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Miami Marlins will get together on Friday night. Arizona, out of the NL West is 9-10 and four games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Miami Marlins are 7-11, and in last place within the National League East. Miami is 7 games behind Washington.

The Marlins are sending Carlos Zambrano to the mound. Zambrano is 0-1 on the season. The Marlins are coming off a 3-2 loss to the Mets on Thursday afternoon. The Marlins are led offensively by Logan Morrison, who is batting .319. Omar Infante is the top homerun hitter, with 5.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to defend their National League West title of a season ago. The Diamondbacks are coming off a loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday. Arizona ranks 10th in the league with 80 runs scored, led by Justin Upton’s 11. Joe Saunders makes the start for Arizona.

Both teams coming into the game are down, when playing against the spread. The Diamondbacks are down -2.14 units, while the Marlins are down over 4 units. The Diamondbacks are 3-3 on the road, while the Marlins are 5-2 at home. We like Miami to win this game.
