Jun/01/2017 has some good trends and picks for Thursday’s Major League Baseball games.  Live betting odds are here

Brewers-Mets - The Brewers are just 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in New York.

The Mets RH Zack Wheeler (3-2, 3.83) turned in his third quality start in four outings Saturday at Pittsburgh, but he did not factor in the decision after yielding three runs and seven hits over six innings. 

The Brewers RH Chase Anderson (3-1, 3.72 ERA) halted a three-game winless streak in his last start.  He is 0-2 with a 4.80 ERA.

Milwaukee won yesterday in New York and are actually 6-2 overall in the last eight of this series. 

Dodgers-Cardinals – The UNDER is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings with the total coming in at 8. 

The Dodgers RH Brandon McCarthy (5-1, 3.28 ERA) has recorded back-to-back stellar outings, allowing one run and five hits over 12 innings in the two victories.  He has three career no-decisions against the Cards.

The Cardinals RH Adam Wainwright (5-3, 4.20) has three straight victories, giving up one run and 12 hits over 20 1/3 innings during the stretch.  Wainwright is 4-5 with a 2.90 ERA in 14 career appearances (11 starts) versus the Dodgers.

As good as these two have been of late, one would see the UNDER as enticing but this is a scenario where we also see a little looser play and more runs scored so passing on this one.

Red Sox-Orioles - The UNDER is The UNDER is 11-2-2 in the last 15 meetings,  5-0-1 in the Red Sox LH Eduardo Rodriguez (4-1, 2.77 ERA )last 6 road starts vs. Orioles and 7-1 in Orioles LH Wade Miley (1-3, 3.02) last eight home starts.  

The Red Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 road games vs. a left-handed starter while the UNDER is 6-2 in the Orioles last 8 games vs. a left-handed starter.

The total for this game is steady at 9.  Six of the last ten in this series have gone UNDER that total.  Another two have resulted in that exact number of runs.  Go With The UNDER 9 Here
