MLB Picks and Predictions for the Tuesday games between the Giants vs Padres, Marlins vs Phillies, Nationals vs Cubs, and Braves vs Red Sox.

Giants vs Padres: 

We got 3 Expert MLB picks for this Tuesday Night, so let’s start it off with the first pick going in this San Francisco Giants vs San Diego Padres game.

This matchup is set to start at 9:40pm at Petco Park in San Diego. The Caesars Sports MLB Odds have the Padres listed as a -178 money line home favorite and +115 on the run line. The over/under is currently at 7.5 total runs.

The Giants will have their right hander Alex Cobb get the start. In 17 starts this season, Cobb has a 3-6 record with a 4.08 ERA and 93 strikeouts. That 3-6 record is a little deceiving, because if you’ve watched him all season, then he should definitely have more than three wins under his belt.

In his last two starts against the Cubs and the Dodgers, he recorded 20 total strikeouts, but unfortunately still came away with two loses. Cobb faced San Diego back in mid April where he gave up 4 hits and two earned runs in 5 total innings.

San Francisco is 2-5 straight up in their last 7 games against San Diego and the total has gone over in 6 of the Giants last 9 games when playing on the road against the Padres.

The Padres will have Joe Musgrove take the mound.  In 19 starts this season, Musgrove has an 8-5 record with an ERA of 3.00 and 120 strikeouts. In 9 careers starts agains the Giants, Musgrove has a 3-3 record with a 3.36 ERA.

Musgrove last started on Thursday against the Rockies and he was pulled in the fourth inning after giving up 8 hits and 6 earned runs. He’ll look for a bounce back performance after that terrible outing.

The Padres are 5-1 straight up in their last 6 games at home and the total has gone over in 4 of San Diego’s last 6 games.

For this Giants vs Padres Tuesday Night baseball game, I’m rolling with the Padres on the Run Line in the 1st 5 Innings (-115).

Nationals vs Cubs: 

Then for my second Free MLB Pick going on this Tuesday Night baseball board is in the Washington Nationals vs Chicago Cubs game. I’m rolling with the Cubs in the First Five Innings on the Run Line (-140).

Marlins vs Phillies: 

For even more action tonight, I threw 1-unit behind the Philadelphia Phillies as the team that wins the race to 3 runs against the Miami Marlins. It’s comes with the big -185 juice, but my information shows that it’ll cover, so I don’t mind laying all that juice.
