Friday Free Pick - MLB 7/8/11
We're going with one of the games with the heaviest betting action: the Red Sox-Oriole game. Bosox pitcher Beckett has been "on fire" this season, with an ERA of around 2.00. His record is 7-3. We're going to use this as a potential way to get value, on the lowly Orioles. The O's have a good, young pitcher in Zach Britton going for them. To "even" the odds up a bit, you can take the run-line if you like. Otherwise you can get about +200 odds. - jc & cb
