Free MLB Baseball Prediction From Strike Point Sports : Take UNDER 7.5 Milwaukee at Miami (7 p.m., Friday, May 20) We have two very underrated hurlers on the mound today, and I think that we’re going to see a tight, low-scoring affair here. Tom Koehler has been a revelation for the Marlins this year. He has a scant 2.25 ERA and has thrown at least seven shutout innings in three of his last four starts. This guy has absolutely dominated opponents at home this year, and in his last three starts in Miami he has given up zero runs and just six hits in 22 innings. That is absolutely remarkable. The ‘under’ has cashed in four of his last six starts, and I think that Koehler will keep humming along against a Brewers lineup that isn’t clicking right now. Marco Estrada has been very good for the Brewers as well. He has a 3.64 ERA and has seven quality starts in his last 10 times on the mound to go along with a 3-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The Marlins have been hitting the ball very well lately. But they are due for a letdown after a tough series with Philadelphia. I think that this game has 3-1 written all over it, and this one will stay ‘under’.


Free MLB Baseball Prediction From Robert Ferringo : Take OVER 8.0 Colorado at Atlanta (7:30 p.m., Friday, May 23) I smell runs. The Rockies have one of the best lineups in baseball, and they never need an excuse to put up crooked numbers. They have been scoring so much, however, that the books have overadjusted their totals, and heading into this week’s series with San Francisco they had gone ‘under’ in eight of 11 games. The idea will be that now that the Rockies are away from Coors Field they will be scoring less. Well, not exactly. It is going to be hot in Atlanta this weekend, and the ball always carries at Turner Field when there is high heat and low humidity. I think the Rockies will get their cuts in against Friday’s starter, Gavin Floyd. I am a huge fan of Floyd’s work from his time back with the White Sox. But after an awesome opening start he’s been touched for four runs in each of his last two starts. I think he’ll be good again at home. But I still think the Rockies can scratch out a trio of runs against Floyd, who is more of a pitch-to-contact kind of guy. On the other hand we have Jordan Lyles. Now this guy is pitching way over his head. He had a career ERA well over 5.00 before joining the Rockies. And how many pitchers do you know see their ERA go down once they go to Colorado? The answer is none. Lyles got lit up for six runs in three innings his last time on the hill. I expect that to mark the beginning of his descent. The Braves offense has been horrific over the last few weeks. But all that has done is water down their totals. This team is night-and-day different when it plays at home. The Braves are a homer-happy, all-or-nothing offense. But this weekend I expect them to launch some bombs, and the stats show that they are due for a breakout offensively. We started to see just that in the Milwaukee series, and the Braves scored 20 runs in three games from Sunday to Tuesday. Expect more of the same at Lyles’ expense in this one.


Free MLB Baseball Prediction From Allen ******* : Take Cincinnati over St. Louis (7 p.m., Saturday, May 24) The Cardinals are the heavy favorite in the Central this year, but I don’t think they have played up to their reputation. I think that this is a very good chance for the Reds to earn a much-needed victory against their division rivals. The main reason I like the Cardinals is that they have struggled against left-handed pitching a lot this year. They are just 3-7 in their last 10 games against a lefty starter. They will be facing Cincinnati’s lefty ace Tony Cingrani. He is back healthy after some time off and will be sharp. Cingrani set a record earlier this year with his 16thstraight start with five or fewer hits allowed. The Reds have their bullpen secure with Aroldis Chapman, another lefty, back in the fold. I think the Reds will need this game more than the Cardinals. And I think they get the job done with a winner here.


Free MLB Baseball Prediction From Jason Sharpe: Take #927 Houston (-105) over Seattle (10 p.m., Saturday, May 24) It's never easy to back the Houston Astros, but there is one guy you should be looking at every time he pitches for them, Dallas Keuchel. The 26-year-old left-hander has turned into an ace with over a 4 to 1 strikeout-to-walk ratio, an ERA under 3.00 for the season and a WHIP hovering right around 1.00 overall. He even looks like he's getting better also as he has posted an ERA of just 1.42 with 22 strikeouts to only 1 walk in his last three outings, and those came against the Angels, Rangers and Tigers, which are solid offensive teams. Probably the most impressive stat of them all though is the fact that the lowly Astros have won six of his nine starts this season.


The Mariners counter with another up-and-coming pitcher in Brandon Maurer. I tried earlier on to be a fan of Maurer, but it's obvious he's just not quite ready for this yet. He did pitch his best outing of the season two starts back against the Royals, but overall he sitting at a 6.00 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP as well. The Astros should be able to score against Maurer as their offense has actually been pretty good of late as they come in 7th in all of baseball in team batting average in the last 20 games.


Take Houston here!
