Here are our 7/18 Free Picks. 37 days til college football! 14 days til NFL preseason!
NY Mets at San Francisco Giants (-112, 7)
The Giants are on a roll and I was one of few who picked them to win over 75 games, which they are on pace for. They have scored the most runs of any team in the month of July.
Mets are also coming off a swept beating the Twins in 4 straight (Giants just swept the Rockies in 4 also)
The Mets will have Noah Syndergaard tonight on the bump against Madison Bumgarner for the Giants. He has a 4.55 ERA/3.81 FIP/1.24 WHIP on the year. Madbum has a 3.86/3.81/1.22 split and has only gave up 2 runs on 14 innings in his last 3 starts.
I am riding the Giant’s bats right now, especially after 4 wins and coming back home. This team just outscored the Rockies 40-14 in the series and this will burst, it just won’t be tonight.
Pick- Giants -112
Houston Astros (-150, 10) vs LA Angels
Matt Harvey day and I love to target against him when he is on the bump. He has a split of 6.88/5.97/1.49, which is nothing to write home about, and the Astros’ bats should be able to jump all over him. The Astros will have Wade Miley on display at pitcher who has a split of 3.32/4.60/1.14,
Astros have a lot of injuries but still averaging 7.9 runs in the last 5 games. I don’t see how the Astros don’t score at least 7 runs tonight. I also like the -1.5 line for the Astros in this matchup. Yes we are taking on some juice here, but the line was all the way up to -160 at some places, so you are getting some value here.
Pick- Astros -150

Dallas Wings vs Los Angeles Sparks (-7, 150.5)
The Sparks are not a deep team and have a lack of depth. The Wings also had a game last night on the road in Phoenix (which they lost). Two back to back road games won’t help their chances to cover today and also bodes well for the under 150.5.
The Wings are 5-12, and 0-8 on the road. The Sparks are the better team here and I think they run the Wings out of the gym. I also like the Sparks -7 but rolling with the under and the first half-line for the Sparks
Pick- Sparks (1H) -4 and under 150.5 full game
