The MLB action on Thursday, July 29th will feature 12 games including a doubleheader the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies. Games start early in the afternoon and run through late at night on the West coast.

Here we’re going to be tracking all the best MLB picks base on the odds and lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for Thursday’s baseball action.

MLB picks for Thursday, July 29th

Yankees ML (-125) vs. Rays

The New York Yankees will look to complete their sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday afternoon They have a great pitching matchup to make it happen with Gerrit Cole on the mound with a 2.74 ERA against Tampa Bay’s Luis Patino, who has appeared in seven games this season with five starts and a 5.26 ERA.

Blue Jays vs. Red Sox O10 runs (-115)

The Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox have the highest run total of the day on DraftKings Sportsbook, but it’s still not enough. Boston and Toronto are two of the best offenses in the sport as they both rank in the top five in runs scored. Go after the over in this spot on Thursday night.

Brewers O4.5 runs (-125)

The Milwaukee Brewers offense is difficult to stop at this point, and there’s no reason to expect their run to end on Thursday night. Milwaukee scored six or more runs in four of their last five games, and they’ve hit Pittsburgh Pirates starter Chad Kuhl pretty hard over two previous matchups this season.

Alec Mills O4.5 strikeouts (+110)

Chicago Cubs starter Alec Mills will go against the Cincinnati Reds, and there’s a good shot he goes over this strikeout total. He has struck out at least five batters in three of his last starts. The Reds do not strike out a ton with the 13th most strikeouts in the league, but there’s a good chance Mills reaches this number on Thursday.
