After a nice 2-0 sweep last night, we're 5-0 over our last 5 baseball picks! Though some hardcore football enthusiasts may disagree, we think there's nothing more fun than a hot MLB run.
The Rays got our Monday off to a fantastic start with an easy 4-1 win over the Red Sox. Our model projects Tampa Bay to win 103 games this season! The Marlins fell behind early, but still came back to beat the Royals 9-6.
Here are 3 MLB Best Bets for Tuesday, June 6. Let's keep the money train rolling! Good luck with your selections!
The sportsbooks just keep disrespecting this Baltimore team and it doesn't make any sense. The O's are 15 games over .500 and have won 20 of their 30 road games this season. Milwaukee has played okay this year, but they don't deserve to be this big of a favorite, even at home.
Balty has the edge in starting pitching in this one with Kyle Gibson on the mound. The young right-hander is 7-3 this season with a 3.89 ERA. Gibson has been insanely good over his last 3 starts, with a 3-0 record and an ERA of only 1.83.
Freddy Peralta has struggled so far for the Brew Crew. He's having a lot of trouble locating his pitches, which is why his WHIP is at 1.74 over his last 3 starts. Look for Ryan Mountcastle, who leads the O's with 11 homers and 39 RBI, to have a big game tonight against Peralta.
Geeez! How much money have we made riding this Rangers bus this season? Texas has the best offense in baseball by a wide margin, which is why we think this price is way too cheap. Marcus Semien leads Texas in batting average, and he's got a 24-game hitting streak going.
We like the arm of Cards lefty Matthew Liberatore, but think he'll be overwhelmed and overmatched by this Rangers lineup. Liberatore is 1-1 on the year with a 4.91 ERA.
On the other hand, Dane Dunning has been lights out for Texas with a 4-1 mark and a 2.06 ERA. The 28-year-old righty doesn't overpower hitters, but he knows how to hit his spots. Let's play the Rangers at home tonight!
Yes, this one was tough to hit submit in the wagering slip! San Diego has been underwhelming to say the least this season. However, the Padre hitters have to turn things around at some point.
Seattle hasn't been hitting the ball much better than San Diego. The Mariners are 12-15 on the road and are in the midst of a 3-game losing streak. They'll have the edge in starting pitching with Logan Gilbert on the hill, but he gave up 5 runs to the Yankees his last time out.
The Pads will counter with Joe Musgrove, who is 3-2 this season with an unimpressive 4.71 ERA. However, Musgrove is in excellent current form with a 2-1 record and an ERA of only 2.60 over his last 3 starts. We also like the Pads bullpen better than the M's. Lay the small number!
