The Texas Rangers cashed for us on Wednesday afternoon, thanks to a strong outing from Martin Perez and some clutch hitting from Marcus Semien. The Seattle Mariners also came through for us, as they outlasted the Oakland A's 6-2. Bryce Miller continues to look unhittable for the M's!
Our only loser was on the St. Louis Cardinals, who were blown out by the Cincinnati Reds 10-3. Cincy pounded out 18 hits to give Ben Lively his first win as a starter since 2017.
After a nice 2-1 yesterday, we're coming right back with 2 MLB Best Bets for Thursday, May 25. Let's keep things rolling! Good luck with your picks!
Chicago White Sox vs Detroit Tigers
The South Siders are starting to turn things around after a horrid start to the season. The White Sox have won 7 of their last 10 and the offense is finally starting to heat up. Luis Robert leads Chicago with 13 home runs and a .273 batting average.
We like backing Lucas Giolito in this spot tonight against Detroit starter Alex Faedo. Giolito is 3-3 on the year with a WHIP of only 1.12 and a hard-hit rate of 35.9%. He struck out 4 and only gave up 1 run against Kansas City his last time out.
Faedo isn't terrible, but he's given up 5 homers in only 15.2 innings of work this season. His FIP is also concerning at 6.09! Look for the Chi-Sox to take Game 1 of this series tonight in the Motor City.
Oakland A's vs Seattle Mariners
Here we go again, folks! We're riding the Fade A's train since it worked out so well last night. Oakland may very well end up being the worst team in MLB history. The A's are on pace for a 32-130 record this season, which be the fewest team wins of all time.
We don't mind playing the run line to save on some juice either, especially with a starter like Logan Gilbert. The 26-year-old has a great mix of breaking pitches that complement his fastball. He got the win against the Braves last Saturday and should be able to mow down this Oakland lineup with ease.
Speaking of the Oakland lineup, they're only hitting .209 against right-handed pitchers this season. They're also only averaging 3.33 runs scored per game against them. Seattle, on the other hand, is scoring 5.45 runs per game against lefties.
Jarred Kelenic leads Seattle with 10 home runs and a .289 batting average. Let's root for another large M's victory tonight!
