Free Baseball Picks – August 15: on 19-6 Run enjoyed a fairly easy win on Wednesday with Pittsburgh nearly shutting St. Louis out.

Today we are on the UNDER 7.5 in the Reds-Brewers game.

UNDERs are not exactly to our liking but this particular game was begging for us to take the UNDER.

The UNDER is 12-2 in Milwaukee's last 14 home games.  The UNDER is 8-1-1 in CIN last 10 road games.

We have the Reds Tony Cingrani coming off a heartbreaking loss after allowing only two runs in San Diego and he also doped his last game against Milwaukee on July 9 (his last loss before San Diego).  Against Milwaukee, Cingrani yielded two runs on three hits and struck out 10 in that 2-0 defeat. 

Kyle Lohse has been a bright spot for the Brewers with an 8-7 record.  He has won three straight games including his last appearance with three runs yielded on six hits over Seattle Friday.

He allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings in a 4-3 victory on July 8 against the Reds. 

Milwaukee is capable of scoring runs, however, against Cincinnati, they have only managed to go OVER the current total in 1 of the last 7 games and 2 of the last 10 in this series.   Cincinnati, meanwhile, has held opponents to 3 or fewer runs in 6 of the last 8 games.

Overall, 8 of 9 games in this series have gone UNDER the total in this series this season alone.


Our other play will be on the Boston Red Sox at -125.  They face off against an undermanned Toronto team that they have beaten 6 of the last 10 times. 

Blue Jays starting pitcher Mark Buehrle has pitched well in recent games overall but is just 7-9 when starting against BOSTON with an ERA of 4.64 and a WHIP of 1.427.

Jake Peavy, on the other hand, is 2-0 when starting against Toronto with an ERA of 3.60 and a WHIP of 1.086.

Peavy, who has also pitched well overall, will be looking to bounce back from a devastating loss against Arizona his last time to the mound.

Toronto are just 5-11 in their last 16 home games.

The Blue Jays are 1-5 in their last 6 games as a home underdog of +110 to +150.

The Blue Jays are 0-4 in Buehrle's last 4 starts vs. American League East.
