Major League Baseball Free Picks, Predictions – April 29 has your Major League Baseball free picks and predictions for April 29 below.

White Sox/Orioles UNDER 8.5 - Four of the last six games of this series in Baltimore have stayed UNDER 7.5.  The UNDER is 13-3-2 in the last 18 meetings.  8 of the last 10 in this series have stayed UNDER the current total.

White Sox RH Jeff Samardzija (1-1, 3.33 ERA) has turned in two quality starts his last two outings.  Samardzija has faced the Orioles only once, allowing four runs and six hits over seven innings in a no-decision last season.

Orioles RH Ubaldo Jimenez (1-1, 2.30) has gone 2-3 with a 5.01 ERA in 10 career starts against the White Sox but enjoyed two scoreless outings to start the season and is coming off a game in which he gave up four runs.  We anticipate Jimenez to be at the top of his game for this one.  It’s a high total too, which we like and both starters are more than capable of keeping the runs to a minimum.

This game will be the first on record to be closed to the public due to the current unrest in Baltimore..

Tigers/White Sox OVER - The OVER is 20-6-1 in Minnesota's last 26 home games  The OVER was 8-1-1 in the last 10 meetings in Minnesota coming into this series.

Greene faced the Twins in his season debut April 9 and yielded an unearned run and four hits over eight innings.

He has otherwise held batters to a .161 batting average and no home runs so far this season.

Phil Hughes is 7-7 with a 4.07 ERA against Detroit, including a 4-0 loss in his season debut April 6.

Hughes has been hammered by 2 homeruns in two of his first four starts and one each in the other two.  With lack of run support, three of the four games started by Hughes have gone UNDER 6.5 though this trend might not hold up in a series with the Tigers.

Miguel Cabrera needs to be on your roster for Wednesday with 16-for-34 hitting and five homeruns along with 12 RBIs. 

Yoenis Cespedes has gone 5-for-10 against Hughes with two doubles.

Yes, the UNDER looks tempting here but we believe the historic OVER trend will hold up here as neither starter has had much luck with the opposing team and the bullpens should be able to seal the deal.

Especially telling is why oddsmakers would make this number so high.
