This play just missed out on our premium card. The Colorado Rockies and the San Francisco Giants face off on Monday night, and as underdogs the Rockies have a ton of value. On the mound for the Giants is Jeff Samardzija who comes into this game with a 2-9 record and an ERA of 4.74.
In his last couple starts he has really struggled. In those three starts he has given up 14 runs. One of those starts was against this Rockies team in which he gave up eight earned runs. Some trends to note. Rockies are 7-1 in Marquezs last 8 starts. Giants are 1-7 in Samardzijas last 8 home starts vs. a team with a winning record.
I think that the Rockies will have no issues getting to him early and often.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.

Monday's FREE MLB WINNER: Colorado over San Francisco.
7:05 pm pst.
Colorado has lost 5 in a row to drop the team into 3rd place in the competitive, NL West. But playing the cellar-dwelling, San Francisco club is just what the doctor ordered. The Rockies start German Marquez. The RH has allowed just 1 ER in each of his L3 turns to bring his campaign up to 5-3 with a 3.92 mark. San Fran owns the worst home record in baseball at 14-21, averaging a mere, 3.76 RPG at AT&T Park. The Giants give Jeff Samardzija the nod. The RH has won just 1 of his L6 starts en route to a 2-9, 4.74 record, which includes an 0-3, 9.33 ERA mark vs. the Rockies this year. Colorado is 10-1 their L11 meetings vs. San Francisco and 7-1 in Marquez's L 8 overall starts. San Francisco is 5-21 their L26 games played overall and 1-5 in Samardzija's L6 overall starts. Take the Rockies. Thank you.

1* FREE PLAY over Angels/Dodgers. Recent form displayed by these starting pitchers suggests we’ll have a bit of a “slug-fest” on our hands in this one. Ricky Nolasco (2-9, 5.23 ERA) has been a complete train-wreck this year and he most recently gave up five runs off seven hits with five walks over five innings in an 8-4 loss to New York on Wednesday. Nolasco hasn’t won a game since April and has posted a 6.28 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in that span (he’s just 1-5 with a 4.56 ERA on the road). Rich Hill (4-3, 4.73) has been hit-or-miss of late and while he does come in off a decent outing against the Mets on Wednesday, giving up one run with three walks over five innings, previous to that he’d been rocked for seven runs over four innings in a loss to the Indians (Hill owns a pedestrian 4.09 ERA at home as well). Consider the over in this one.
I like the UNDER 21 soccer match between England and Germany to stay under the total which is set at 2.5. This match takes place on Tuesday at 12 noon eastern.

NYY/ChiSox 8:10: Both teams are struggling but I like the White Sox at home here. Sox are sizzling against lefties --driving in nearly 6 RPG on a near .300 BA. Montgomery is ripe for the taking. Although he's pitched well, he hasn't gone to 6 innings over his last few starts. The Yankees have struggled on the recent road and won't have an easy time here. Sox have split the last 6 games in this series; moreover, NY has lost 11 of the last 16 in Chicago. We'll look for Holmberg, who is comfortable at home at night, to deliver.
6/26 08:10 PM EST MLB (961) NEW YORK YANKEES VS (962) CHICAGO WHITE SOX.
Take: UNDER THE TOTAL.
Reason: Your free pick for Monday, June 26, 2017, comes in baseball as the NY Yankees head to Chicago to face the White Sox. Chicago is a big park, great for pitchers. Yankees lefty Jordan Montgomery (5-4, 3.74 ERA) is 3-0 in his last four starts and picked up a win on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Angels while allowing two runs and five hits in 5+ innings. The Under is 5-2 when the Yankees are on the road against a team with a losing record. Chicago has a weak offense, #22 in runs scored, #23 in on base percentage. White Sox lefty David Holmberg (1-1, 2.84 ERA) has good stuff and the team is 7-3-2 under at home against a team with a winning record. Play the Yankees/White Sox Under the total.

Who will win tonight's Yankees/White Sox MLB game against the spread?
Doc's Sports Pick: Take the Yankees
1 Unit FREE PLAY on Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-110)
The Los Angeles Dodgers are now 16-1 in their last 17 games overall after winning 10 straight coming in. A whopping 12 of their last 13 wins have come by two runs or more as well. I think the hottest team in baseball will win this game by at least two runs as they feast on Angels starter Ricky Nolasco, who is 2-9 with a 4.80 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 15 starts this year. Nolasco has allowed 10 runs and four homers in 11 1/3 innings over his last two starts. The Angels are 0-6 in Nolasco's last six road starts. The Dodgers are 45-14 in their last 59 home games.

Rookie Jordan Montgomery makes his 14th start of the season for the Yankees. He is 5-4 with a 3.74 ERA, a 1.246 WHIP, 26 walks and 71 strikeouts over 74.2 innings of work this season. Montgomery picked up a victory his last time out, which came Wednesday at home against the Angels. He threw 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts as the Yankees rolled to an 8-4 win. Montgomery is 2-0 with a 3.93 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, four walks and 18 strikeouts over 18.1 innings of work in his last three starts. He beat the White Sox in his lone career start against them, which came at home April 17. Montgomery allowed three runs on seven hits with two walks and four strikeouts over six innings in a 7-4 Yankees win. This marks his first career outing at Guaranteed Rate Field.
David Holmberg gets the call for his 15th appearance and sixth start of the season for the White Sox. He is 1-1 with a 2.84 ERA, a 1.042 WHIP, 11 walks and 20 strikeouts over 31.2 innings of work this season. Holmberg made a relief appearance against the A’s Friday night, not factoring in the decision. He threw a scoreless inning in a 3-0 Chicago loss. Holmberg is 1-1 with a 3.55 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP, four walks and 11 strikeouts over 12.2 innings in his last three starts. In his 29th major league appearance and his 18th start, he faces the Yankees for the first time in his career. Holmberg has no record with a 2.77 ERA and a 0.923 WHIP over 13 innings in six career appearances, two starts, at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The value in this this game is with the Yankees. The Yankees are 4-1, and have momentum. I have the Yankees winning 5-3
Phillies vs Mariners Free Pick June 27, 2017
Philadelphia has the worst road record in the majors, and only San Diego has scored fewer runs than the Phillies this season. Seattle has a solid 25-15 home record, and I like the M's in Game 1 of this series at Safeco.
James Paxton will toe the slab for Seattle, and he's been lights out at home. The southpaw is 4-1 with a 2.48 ERA in seven starts at Safeco in 2017. He's also 4-1 with a 3.29 ERA in nine starts under the lights.
The Phillies hand the ball to Aaron Nola, who is coming off one of his best starts of the season. He allowed one run on four hits, striking out eight over 7 1/3 innings in a home win over St. Louis his last time out. He hasn't had as much success on the road, and he was torched for eight runs on 13 hits and four walks over 11 innings in losses to Arizona and St. Louis in his previous two starts.
Philly has lost eight of it's last nine versus American League teams, and 10 of it's last 14 versus Seattle.
The Toronto starting pitching is just strong enough - and their overall defense and power are actually pretty decent. Ranked 14th in the majors with 98 HRs and a middling 4.37 ERA as a team. Toronto needs to keep up their solid field play - with their best, Justin Smoak and Russell Martin.
