Washington Nationals vs. Miami Marlins
Washington Nationals
-110
  at  BMAKER
in 4h

Both of these teams have been early-season disappointments. The Marlins are playing better now, but the Nationals have too many edges in this matchup.
The biggest advantage Washington has going is Gio Gonzalez, a Miami-area native who has owned the Marlins during his past five starts against with a 1.13 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 32 innings. The Nationals beat Miami in each of those past five starts. Lifetime, the left-handed Gonzalez is 6-2 with a 1.67 ERA in eight starts versus the Marlins going back to when he pitched for Oakland.
The key to stopping Miami is effectively dealing with Giancarlo Stanton, who is batting .153 against Gonzalez in 13 career at bats. The Marlins have lost seven of the past 10 times they've gone against a southpaw starter.
Gonzalez has dominated against under .500 teams. The Nationals are 33-13 (72 percent) the past 46 times Gonzalez has started against opponents with a losing mark.
The Marlins are minus injured left fielder Christian Yelich, arguably their second-best hitter, and don't have a strong bench. That factor is often magnified on Sunday when teams rest regulars.
Dan Haren goes for the Marlins. The 34-year-old Haren is clearly past his prime. Haren gave up four earned runs, including two homers, in six innings against the Phillies this past Tuesday in a 7-3 loss. The Phillies rank last in runs scored per game, are 29th in batting average and have smacked the third-fewest homers in the majors.
The Nationals know Haren well since he pitched for them just two years ago. Denard Span and Jayson Werth are a combined 12-for-28 (.428) against Haren, whose ERA has been above 4.00 each of the past three seasons.
Washington has been tough when losing the first two games of a series going 4-0. The Nationals also have won 17 of their last 21 Sunday games.(Editor's note: Overall money leader Stephen Nover has his Baseball Underdog of the Month going today along with an NBA Destroyer in addition to this free selection. Stephen is 76-37-1 on his last 114 NBA plays.)

04/26 04:10 PM EST   MLB   (909) PITTSBURGH PIRATES VS (910) ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
Take: (909) PITTSBURGH PIRATES
Reason: Your free play for Sunday, April 26, 2015 is in the baseball contest between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Diamondbacks in Arizona. Pittsburgh is 0-3 in Francisco Liriano's start but he is throwing great, with a 23-6 strikeout to walk ratio and a 3.00 ERA. Liriano struck out nine and walked two while giving up three runs on three hits over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Cubs. Pittsburgh has plenty of offensive punch, 15th in runs scored, 18th in slugging. The Pirates are 6-1 versus a right-handed starter and 16-5 in their last 21 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. Righty Jeremy Hellickson (4.58 ERA) hasn't thrown well for Arizona, and the Diamondbacks are 16-37 in their last 53 games as an underdog, including 15-32 in their last 47 games as a home underdog. The Diamondbacks are also 4-9 against a lefty starter and the Pirates are 7-3 in this building. Play Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
Pittsburgh Pirates

*3 Star Free Pick* The Pittsburgh Pirates are going for the sweep here in Arizona. While Pittsburgh was up and down early this year, the Pirates are a good team. They have a strong pitching staff and an underrated lineup. With Starling Marte coming into his own and Neil Walker hitting well, Andrew McCutchen has a lot more help than he has had in the past. Pittsburgh has a huge edge in the bullpen here too. Arizona starts Jeremy Hellickson, and I don't think he's a good fit for Chase Field. Chase Field is very friendly to hitters with the roof open, and it will be open for this one. Liriano and the Pirates finish off the sweep. Take Pittsburgh.

*My MLB Moneyline Game of the MONTH goes on Sunday afternoon (1:00 pm eastern start). It's backed by a 13-0 angle and it's my biggest play of the year thus far. LOWEST prices of the YEAR on all premium packages Sunday. Get on board!*

Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards
Washington Wizards
-5½-107
  at  5DIMES
in 9h

The Toronto Raptors will be looking to extend the series at least one more game but it won’t be easy. The Raptors have been led by DeMar DeRozan with 22.3 points and 6.3 assists a game while Amir Johnson is adding 14 points and 8.3 rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas is grabbing 9.3 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors have been a sieve on defense allowing 223 points in their last two games, and they’ve lost seven of their last eight games when allowing 100-plus points. The Raptors also aren’t getting anything from Kyle Lowry, who is shooting just 23.8 percent from the field in this series.

The Washington Wizards are looking to close out Toronto in game four.  Bradley Beal has led the Wizards with 20 points and 6.7 rebounds a game. His backcourt running mate, John Wall adds 18.3 points and 13.3 assists. Paul Pierce is shooting 53.8 percent from the field and hitting dagger shots down the stretch. Marcin Gortat is grabbing 9.7 rebounds game.. The Washington Wizards are shooting 48.6 percent from two and 39.4 percent from three in this series. The Wizards may currently be playing their best basketball of the season. The Wizards have won five of their last six home games.

The Wizards have been playing great and Paul Pierce is hitting big shot after big shot. Toronto has not shown up on the defensive end and Washington has been able to do what they want. There is no reason for that to change here.

Play on Washington. This is a (1*) free play.

Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers
Detroit Tigers
+103
  at  PINNACLE
in 4h

I'm backing the Tigers on Sunday.  Detroit now is 40-15 at home against the Indians after Saturday's 4-1 win.  Kyle Lobstein has the unenviable job of filling in for Justin Verlander but the left-hander has been decent allowing four runs in 11 innings. Cleveland is batting just .206 against lefties this season.  Carlos Carrasco survived a batted ball to the face and returned to pitch five innings while allowing one run in his next outing.  He could run into trouble today though as the Tigers have a .304 batting average and .829 OPS against him.  Also, Carrasco has a 6.08 ERA vs the Tigers the last three years and a .333 opponent batting average at Comerica Park.  Detroit is an underdog in this matchup (at the time of this post) and I'm recommending a play on the underdog Tigers.  Detroit on Sunday.  Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.
