Our MLB picks finished up at 2-1 last night, but we were oh so close to a perfect 3-0 sweep. The Guardians continued to dominate the lowly P'Rats and the Giants pulled off a wild win over the Reds.
Unfortunately, our Phillies run line bet didn't get home, as they won by only a run. Though that was a little painful, we're happy with a 2-1 night. You can't go broke turning a profit (lol)!
Wednesday means the return of one of our favorite treats, daytime baseball! Check out our 2 MLB best bets to start raking in some cash! Good luck today!
Might as well keep riding the Guards horse til she bucks us off! In case you haven't noticed, this Cleveland offense is on FIRE! Josh Naylor hit 2 more homers last night, which brought his yearly total up to 15.
We love fading 43-year-old Rich Hill today in this early 12:35 start time. The veteran lefty still has a nice curveball but his ERA of near 5 tells us that's about all he has left in the tank. For the Guards, we like their starter Aaron Civale, who has a nasty cutter and a hard-hit rate of only 34.7%.
The Pirates can't hit a lick here lately. They're only averaging 2.4 runs per game over their last 10 outings. Meanwhile, the Guardians have scored 21 runs in their last 2 games and are averaging 5.3 runs per game over their last 10. Expect another Cleveland blowout win!
Houston is scuffling a bit, but we think they'll be highly motivated after losing to lowly Colorado last night. Rockies starter Austin Gomber has pitched well of late, but he still has one of the worst ERAs in baseball at 6.19! The Astros bats should feast off of Gomber in this early afternoon tilt.
Gomber's fastball only tops out at 91mph, and it doesn't move. That's obviously an issue against big-league hitters, especially at Coors Field. Houston is scoring 5.7 runs per game against lefties in their last 5 outings.
The bullpen edge also heavily favors Houston. Astros relievers have a batting average against of only .229, while Rockies relievers are at .258. Lay the big wood with Houston! Good luck!
