Today we will have an action-packed Sunday in the MLB, as 15 games will take place throughout the league. Here we’re going to keep track of the best MLB picks based on odds and lines at DraftKings Sportsbook for Sunday’s baseball action.
MLB predictions for Sunday, June 12
Braves over 5.5 total runs (+100)
The Atlanta Braves have posted 10 straight wins and will be looking to get to 11 this afternoon when they take on the Pittsburgh Pirates. With the likes of Ronald Acuña Jr. and Dansby Swanson breaking the plate in this series, the Braves should get at least six runs with ease this afternoon.
Cubs money line vs. Yankees (+195)
The Chicago Cubs are riding a five-game losing streak and will try to stop the bleeding when they take on the New York Yankees in their series finale this afternoon. The good news is that Keegan Thompson is starting today and has been solid with a 6-1 record and a 3.17 ERA this season. We’ll predict he’ll find a way to neutralize the Yankees’ powerful lineup and put the Cubbies back in the win column.
Blue Jays vs. Tigers under 8 runs (-110)
The Toronto Blue Jays and Detroit Tigers will wrap up their three-game series this afternoon and attendees at Comerica Park will be treated to a pitching duel between Blue Jays starter Ross Stripling and Tigers starter Tarik Skubal. Stripling has been solid both as a starter and as a reliever this season, while Skubal has only driven in more than three earned runs just once this season. He takes the bass.
White Sox -1.5 vs. Rangers (+140)
Frustration is building on the South Side as Chicago White Sox fans were chanting yesterday over the firing of manager Tony La Russa during their 11-9 loss to the Texas Rangers. The team should get a brief reprieve this afternoon when they take on Rangers starter Jon Gray, who has given up at least four earned runs in three of his last five starts. The Sox should take advantage of this and cover the running line this afternoon.
