MLB Picks, August 7th

Three games on the MLB docket today that look promising.

$10 on Minnesota (Deduno) over Cleveland (Kluber) @ +$105
Samuel Deduno toes the rubber for the Twins this evening, bringing with him a 3-0 record and a 0.93 ERA in his last three starts. The Tribe counters with Corey Kluber, who was clubbered by the Royals for 6 runs in 4+ innings in his only start. Minnesota is playing their best ball of the season right now, winning 7 of their last 10 games and are 6-3 versus the Indians this year. Cleveland has had a rough go of it lately, losing 10 straight games including a 14-3 drubbing last night at the hands of the Twins.
$15 on Washington (Detwiler) over Houston (Lyles) -1 1/2 @ -$115
Ross Detwiler takes the ball for the Nats in the Bayou City tonight. Detwiler has posted a 6-4 record this year with a 3.02 ERA and is 2-1, 2.41 in his last three outings. Jordan Lyles is the sacrificial lamb for the Astros tonight. Lyles is 0-2 with a 8.64 ERA in his last three trips to the bump. Washington has won 4 of 5 against the Astros. Houston is 4-31 in its last 35 games. That's right, 4-31.
$10 on Chi Sox (Peavy) over Kansas City (Chen) -1 1/2 @ +$100
Jake Peavy throws the horsehide tonight for the Palehose. Peavy has been solid this season, sporting a 9-7 record with a 3.04 ERA. In his last start he limited the Twins to 1 run in 8 innings. The Royals send Bruce Chen to the hill. Chen has struggled in enemy territory, going 3-6 with a 6.88 ERA on the highway. He hasn't  been much better lately, going 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA in his last three starts. The Sox have won 7 of their last 10 games.
