MLB action continues Sunday with the primetime matchup between the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers headlining the day’s slate. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros will look to continue their winning ways while the San Francisco Giants hope to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Here we’re going to be tracking all the best MLB picks base on the odds and lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for Sunday’s baseball action.
MLB picks for Sunday, July 25th
Braves total runs over 3.5 (-140)
The Phillies are sending Aaron Nola to the mound and while the pitcher has had some strong games this season, his last three outings have been poor. He’s given up at least four runs in each stint, including a disastrous seven-run showing against the Marlins. Nola has pitched against the Braves three times this season, giving up four or more runs in two of those outings.
Astros -1.5 vs. Rangers (-130)
The Rangers aren’t very good, while the Astros are World Series contenders. Houston sends Zack Greinke to the mound against a lineup struggling to produce runs. Greinke hasn’t been dominant, but his 3.58 ERA in 20 starts is solid. Take the Astros at -1.5 in the final game of the series.
Anthony Rizzo over 1.5 total bases (+110)
Rizzo has been quiet for much of July, but did register two hits in the last two games agaisnt the Diamondbacks. This could be the last homestand for Chicago’s star trio of Rizzo, Kris Bryant and Javier Baez. Bryant had a good day Saturday, so it could be Rizzo’s turn for a big showing Sunday.
Lance Lynn under 6.5 strikeouts (+110)
Lynn has struck out six batters or less in nine of his last 14 starts. The Brewers have been one of the worst teams in the league when it comes to striking out so there’s some risk here, but the value is good at +110.
