Hot lines: Sunday's best MLB bets

Texas Rangers at Minnesota Twins (-175, 8.5)

Contract negotiations between Josh Hamilton’s agent and the Texas Rangers are ongoing and that’s about all the slugger wants to know about it.

"It's good that I don't know all the details," Hamilton told reporters earlier this week. "It keeps me from being weird around front office people, too, if I really don't know what's going on until it gets very serious. I don't think it's at that point. I think they want to get an idea, each side, and feel things out. We've expressed what we'd like to do contract-wise."

The contract talk certainly doesn’t seem to be bothering Hamilton. He had three hits and was a triple away from the cycle in Saturday’s 6-2 win over the Minnesota Twins, swatting his third homer of the season in the third inning.

Hamilton is now hitting a team-best .378 early this season and the 13 hits the Rangers banged out Saturday was just what the offense needed.

Pick: Over

Cincinnati Reds at Washington Nationals (-115, 8)

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is itching to get back in the lineup to help the team’s scuffling offense. He might get his wish Sunday.

Phillips felt his left hamstring was good to go for Saturday’s game, but manager Dusty Baker decided to hold him out another day.

"Seeing the way we're playing and with me on the bench, I feel like I need to go in there," Phillips told MLB.com. "I'm not 100 percent, but I can play. I can go out there and perform, regardless of the fact. No one on the team is 100 percent. I could go out there, play, and be comfortable.”

The Reds definitely need a spark. They were averaging just 2.75 runs per game heading into Saturday’s game, ranking 29th in the bigs and then managed only two hits in a 4-1 loss.

Phillips will give them a boost as they try to avoid the series sweep.

Pick: Reds

Don't usually do writeups on on weekends but I like the NUCKS tongiht with Schineder in the pipes. VAN is a sick roadeam all year and I think it wil serve them well to get out of dodge and hit the road together. Now I'm not in love with them so I only played them on the ML S.U for a single and then the same on the over 5 (both at +110) but now that the PANTHERS are in and the NYY ML loks solid I have VAN +1.5 o the O 5 for a nickle on one parlay and then ML to the O 5 to finish a second parlay for +1265. So if VAN win and it goes ocver this is a crzay monster of a day. They lose and I'M CHOKED !!!!!!!

DDH420 - Well not bad on Saturday. LAA and Seattle both won and Pitt just missed. All three were shut out on Friday. Will have to take a look at Phil and Oakland today.

Covers forum: BIG day tomorrow value-wise.. just note the moneyline price on the Tigers listed as -101 with my bookie- White Sox wont sweep them. Take the Phillies also, -1 1/2 thats +120 for you. Good gambling!
