Right now, I’m sitting here with App State on my TV and it has me thinking about underdogs. Thinking about one of the best upsets in college football history. Now, my underdog of the day is not going to be App State knocking off Michigan, but it is a team with plus odds that’ll win you some money. 

So, let’s check out the odds for Colorado and Cincinnati today.

Best MLB Underdog Pick Today

This is a pretty big gift to get Colorado as an underdog against a left-handed pitcher and one who plays for the Reds nonetheless. Nick Lodolo is going for Cincinnati and has a 4.30 ERA on the season and has given up seven earned runs over his last two starts. 

Colorado has hit lefties well all season and rank seventh in OPS vs. lefties and are No. 1 in the league in RBI against left-handers. The should be able to put up runs against Lodolo especially in Cincinnati’s hitter friendly stadium. 

German Marquez is pitching for Colorado which could be concerning with an ERA north of 4.50, but he is coming in with momentum after going seven scoreless against the Mets his last time out. The Rockies are not a good team, but are definitely better than the Reds and are a good value today. 

Pick: Rockies +110
