Free Baseball Pick August 23 has your FREE Baseball pick for August 23 after a nice win with Pittsburgh last night.

That game’s total opened at 6.5 and moved to 7.  The Pirates alone scored more points than the full total.

Today, we like the OVER 6.5 for Pittsburgh/San Francisco.  This does seem like a sucker play but 8 of the last 10 meetings between these two teams we have seen the total go OVER the current number of 6.5.  In fact, the last five games in this series have gone OVER that number.

While both starting pitchers have pitched well of late and overwhelmingly gone UNDER the total against the opposing team in past appearances, this number is just too good to pass up when one considers the recent history between these two teams.

Pittsburgh has scored 5 or more runs in six of their last ten games overall.  San Francisco has scored 5 or more runs in five of their last ten games overall. 

The Over is 7-1 in Bumgarner's last 8 starts as a home favorite of -110 to -150.

Over is 17-5 in Giants last 22 home games with the total set at 6.5 or lower.
