2014 MLB Betting – Baseball Picks For Tuesday, June 24


There’s a little more urgency in this 2014 MLB Betting baseball season now that the All-Star break is a little more visible for each big-league team. The push to the midsummer break is important throughout the majors.

2014 MLB Betting at StadiuemGame 1:Oakland Athletics @ New York Mets – Tuesday, June 24

The pitching matchup this is a fascinating one for all reasons. First, Bartolo Colon is the New York Mets’starter, but he had recently pitched for Oakland. Second, Colon did effectively when he was a member of the Athletics. He helped guide the team to the playoffs last season and turned back the clock. He was among the American League’s top ERA guys for much of last season, despite a human body that was woefully out of shape and a diet that has been anything but disciplined. That Colon is still surviving in the majors and doing reasonably well, with a 3.88 ERA, is something that remains hard for lots of baseball fans to believe.

Yet, the bigger surprise in this matchup, larger than Colon, is on the other side of things. The Athletics send Scott Kazmir to the bump because of this game. Kazmir’s career seemed to be lost and adrift many years ago, as he bounced around various teams and was no better when compared to a number four to five starter. He was an average fourth or fifth starter as well. He lost what he had when he became a top-of-the-line pitcher with the Los Angeles Angels in previous seasons. Yet, Kazmir improved last season with the Cleveland Indians, and he’s become an ace-level pitcher this year in Oakland. Kazmir is in contention for the Cy Young Award, having produced a 2.08 ERA to the point. With Kazmir going up against the Mets’feeble offense, Oakland should be the choice here.

MLB Betting Pick: Oakland

Game 2: New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays – Tuesday, June 24

The pitching matchup in this game is one in that your Yankees aren’t totally outclassed… but they’re still outclassed. David Phelps would go to the hill for the Yankees with a 3.86 ERA. That’s pretty solid for the American League, and it’s something New York ought to be quite happy with from the lower-end starter in its rotation. However, Phelps goes up against Mark Buehrle, Toronto’s ace and who owns a bright 2.32 ERA. Buehrle is rolling this season after having a rocky 2013. The Blue Jays should be anticipated to win in this situation.

MLB Betting Pick: Toronto

Game 3: Minnesota Twins @ Los Angeles Angels – Tuesday, June 24

Thepitchers in this game are even with regards to ERA numbers. Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson and Los Angeles’C.J. Wilson are within .09 runs of every other. Gibson includes a 3.25 ERA, Wilson 3.34. The non-pitching elements are what should decide this game. The Angels have now been getting more production from their order this season and have now been in a position to overcome a leaky bullpen. The Twins have now been overachieving this season, however the Angels certainly are a better team overall.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels
