The baseball action in the MLB continues on Wednesday, as we featured our daily double for the day. Last night, we correctly predicted one of the two featured picks as the Indians comfortably won against the Tigers, but the Nationals lost a shocker against the Orioles. We look to bounce back after last night’s daily double result with another two free picks. As always, make sure to follow us on our social media platforms to stay up to date with all our picks and predictions.

Kansas City Royals vs Oakland Athletics (August 28 – 20:15 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Jakob Junis (8-12, ERA: 4.83) vs Tanner Roark (8-8, ERA: 3.95)

The Royals host the Athletics in the third match of the series at Kauffman Stadium. The series has played out in Oakland’s favor so far, as they won both matches. They will be looking to add a third win tonight when the two teams meet. On Monday, the Athletics managed to get 19 runs past the Royals, and will be looking to build on that confidence going in Wednesday’s meeting. Furthermore, they have been one of the better away teams in the league recently, having won 4 of their last 5 matches. On the other hand, the Royals will look to bounce back after those two disappointing losses. Overall, they have been shaky at home this season, as their home record is the third worst in the American League. To add to that, their starting pitcher’s record is 3-13 in his last 16 starts against teams with a winning record. We like Oakland’s chances to get a third consecutive win against the Royals tonight.


Colorado Rockies vs Boston Red Sox (August 28 – 20:40 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Peter Lambert (2-4, ERA: 6.40) vs Eduardo Rodriguez (15-5, ERA: 3.92)

The Rockies face the Red Sox in the second match of the series at Coors Field. Boston won the opening match last night with a 10-6 scoreline. They will be looking to earn another win on Wednesday evening, as they continue to battle for a postseason berth. On that note, the Red Sox have been playing well lately. They recorded 7 wins in their last 10 matches. This is the sort of form that they need to achieve if they want to take part in the postseason. To add to that, they have been averaging a total of 6.2 runs in that same time span. This demonstrates that they have been doing well offensively. On the other hand, the Rockies have not been playing well. They have only recorded 3 wins in their last 10 matches. We think that Boston’s pitcher will be tough to beat tonight, as he holds an outstanding record this season. Moreover, the Red Sox have won 7 of the last 10 matches between the two teams.
