One key with betting the MLB or any baseball is finding underdogs who have great value at an underdog price. Very rarely do all favorites win any given day, so picking the right underdogs can make a lot of money. With such a light card we will also look at some run line picks that are plus money.
Texas Rangers ML +125
The Texas Rangers have really struggled coming into this game but they do have their best pitcher on the mound in this game. Lance Lynn comes into this game with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 1.37. He has already made one start against the Oakland Athletics so far this year and in that game he gave up only one run in 6 1/3rd innings. The Rangers offense has struggled, but they aren’t going to have to score many runs because Lynn will shut down the A’s. Back the Rangers at a very nice money to get the job done.
Cincinnati Reds -1.5 +118
The Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers have both had their fair share of struggles coming into this game but the Reds have a huge advantage on the mound that is going to be the difference in this game. Trevor Bauer gets the start for the Reds and he has been lights out this year sitting with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 0.68. The Brewers offense has struggled as of late and it’s going to get any easier against Bauer in this game. Look for Bauer to lock down and the Reds to win this game on the run line.
Miami Marlins +100
The Miami Marlins lost their game on Sunday against the Washington Nationals, but this is a good bounce-back spot for them. Getting the start for the Marlins will be Pablo Lopez and he comes into this game with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 2.42. Look for the Lopez to lock down and that will be enough for the Marlins to come away with a big upset victory. This is a strong play.
