MLB picks for Wednesday, July 13

Diamondbacks Moneyline (+110)

The Arizona Diamondbacks have a more predictable pitching expectation with Zac Gallen (4-2, 3.62) on the mound, while this will be a bullpen game for the San Francisco Giants. Gallen has put together solid season-long numbers through 16 starts this season, and he should put the Diamondbacks in a good position to win this series with a victory on Wednesday afternoon.

Padres -1.5 (-110)

The San Diego Padres starter Joe Musgrove (8-2, 2.09 ERA) has been excellent in 2022 and is coming off a start where he threw 7 scoreless innings and allowed just 1 hit against the Giants. Meanwhile, the Colorado Rockies pitcher Chad Kuhl (6-5, 4.02 ERA) allowed 9 runs over his last two starts, spanning 10 innings - both against the Arizona Diamondbacks heading into Game 3 of this series.

Phillies-Blue Jays Under 8 runs (-115)

This is a great pitching matchup with Philadelphia Phillies starter Zack Wheeler (8-4, 2.46 ERA), while Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ross Stripling (4-3, 3.34 ERA) will take the mound. Wheeler threw 7 scoreless innings in consecutive games, and the Phillies scored 3 or fewer runs in five straight games.

Shane McClanahan Over 7.5 strikeouts (-120)

This is a high strikeout total for Tampa Bay Rays star pitcher Shane McClanahan, but it’s not high enough. He has a 12.2 K/9 and struck out more than 7.5 batters in six of his last seven starts. McClanahan will face a Boston Red Sox lineup that strikes out 8.1 times per game.
