As a friend of ours likes to say, "Good morning from the Captain's Chair!" It always feels amazing to wake up a winner, especially after going to bed thinking that you may go 0-2-1. The Mets, Rockies, and Twins all gave us an incredible sweat last night.
Max Scherzer blew a 4-run lead thanks to way too many hanging sliders. Thankfully, the Mets scratched out a 5th inning run to give us the push on that one. The Rockies let the Red Sox back in the game, but they ended up winning outright with our +1.5 ticket.
Last but certainly not least, the Twins forged a remarkable comeback against the Brewers. After trailing the entire game, Carlos Correa hit a walk-off 2-run homer to send the hometown Minnesota fans home happy.
After a 2-0-1 performance last night, we're sitting pretty at 62-48 with our baseball selections. Let's stay hot with 2 MLB best bets for Wednesday, June 14! Good luck!
Why not go back with those marvelous Twinkies again today? This game has an early start time so get those wagers in as fast as you can. This play is basically another fade of Milwaukee.
The Brewers have now lost 5 in a row and last night's devastating loss is the kind that tends to linger a few days. 32-year-old Colin Rea will be on the hill for the Brew Crew, but his stuff is nothing special. His FIP is at 4.94 and his hard-hit rate of 43.5% is also concerning.
The Twins will counter with Bailey Ober, and he's 3-3 this year with a tiny ERA of 2.61 and an even more impressive WHIP of 0.97. This young right-hander is an intimidating presence on the mound at 6-foot-9 and he has a great 4-seam fastball. Let's ride the Twins for some early action!
The Mets are in a freaking tailspin at the moment, as they've dropped 9 of their last 10 ball games. Blowing another big lead last night won't help their psyche, either. There will be no rest for the weary tonight, as the Yanks will send their ace to the hill in Gerrit Cole.
Cole is 7-1 with an ERA of only 2.84 and a WHIP of only 1.14. He shouldn't have any trouble against this Pete Alonso-less Mets lineup. The Mets will counter with Justin Verlander, who has yet to find his groove in 2023.
Verlander is just 2-3 this season with an ERA near 5 and a hard-hit rate of 43.3%. He's also in poor current form, as his ERA is over 7 over his last 3 starts. Give us the better starter and the much better bullpen with the Yanks!
