Free Baseball Picks – August 12:  Gambling911 on 16-4 Run

Gambling911.com had another winning day on Sunday with a 2-1 showing.  We got the OVER on the Oakland/Toronto game and we won with Oakland’s victory but suffered a loss in the OVER on the Texas/Houston game.

 

Today we are all over Detroit as a -117 favorite at SportsBetting.com

Chicago White Sox starter Chris Sale, who won his last start but is only 7-11 on the season, is 1-4 when starting against Detroit with an ERA of 4.68 and a WHIP of 1.530.

While Miguel Cabrera is just 2-for-14 with four strikeouts against Sale, DH Victor Martinez is 7-for-12 versus the White Sox starter.

Tigers RH Doug Fister (10-5, 3.50 ERA) did not win his last start, however, he had won four previous starts.

Chicago SS Alexei Ramirez, now enjoying an eight-game hitting streak, is 6-for-19 (.316) with a pair of doubles against Fister.

The Detroit starter won a 2-1 decision against the White Sox back on August 2. 

Sale started against Detroit back on July 11 with the Tigers allowed 3 runs in that game but the White Sox enjoyed a 6 run win that day.  He would go on to lose against Detroit on the 22nd of that month as the Tigers went on to score 7 runs.

The Tigers are 6-1 against the White Sox over the last 7 meetings. 

 

Cincinnati -142 at SportsBetting.com.   A bit pricey but the -142 line is still doable especially in this position where the Reds have gone 8-2 against the Cubs over their last 10 meetings.  Cincinnati is also 22-8 in the last 30 meetings in Chicago.  The Reds have won 12 of their last 13 matchups in Chicago.

The Cubs Travis Woo is 0-3 when starting against CINCINNATI with an ERA of 4.65 and a WHIP of 1.194.  His team's record is 0-5 in these starts.  Mat Latos is 4-2 when starting against Cubs with an ERA of 3.28 and a WHIP of 1.236.

Latos is 11-3 on the season while Wood is 7-8.

The Reds 3B Todd Frazier is 6-for-12 with two homers and six RBIs against Wood.

The Reds are 15-1 in Latos' last 16 starts with 5 days of rest.

The Cubs are 1-6 in their last 7 home games vs. a right-handed starter.

The Cubs are 3-14 in Woods last 17 starts after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game.

The Cubs are 1-5 in Woods last 6 home starts.
