Happy Wednesday, everybody! There are 16 games that are set to be played today. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite plays for today’s action, which are powered by Underdog.
Coming into the 2023 MLB season, Shane Bieber was established as one of the Cleveland Guardians’ best pitchers. However, with a 3.11 ERA to begin the year, Bieber hasn’t exactly had the impressive season that Guardians fans were looking for.
Tonight, the Guardians are slated to take on the Yankees, who have only won three of their last ten games. As the Yankees look to right the ship, we’re expecting them to take full advantage of Bieber’s slow start.
This, combined with the fact that Bieber has only struck out five or more batters in one appearance this season, leads us to take the under on his strikeout total tonight.
The Washington Nationals have had a less-than-ideal start to the season, as their record currently sits at 11-18, the bottom-feeders of the NL East. They face off against Marcus Stroman tonight, who sports a 2.29 ERA on the year.
As he looks to continue his pitching brilliance, we’re anticipating a big night out of him in the strikeout category. He has eclipsed four strikeouts in five of his last six outings and is in line for a big performance against the Nationals tonight.
Byron Buxton has been one of the most exciting players in baseball this season. He has brought life to the Minnesota Twins and has stayed healthy for the majority of the season thus far.
We’re projecting him to have a fantastic night against the Chicago White Sox as the Twins look to further their lead in the AL Central.
He has shattered his fantasy point total in his past three games, and we’re not anticipating that to slow down tonight. Take the over on Buxton’s fantasy points with confidence tonight.
It’s a good thing that the Baltimore Orioles called up Adley Rutschman last year. Rutschman has been on an absolute tear this season, batting .315, and already has four home runs, 18 RBI, and 15 runs scored on the year.
Rutschman is coming off a four-hit performance against the Kansas City Royals and looks to build upon that tonight. Look for Rutschman to have another huge game, crushing the over on his hits, runs, and RBI total.
The Pasquatch has officially taken over the Kansas City Royals. Vinnie Pasquantino has become one of the only bright spots on a lowly Royals team.
While they are nearly eliminated from playoff contention already, Pasquantino continues to bring energy to the team on a nightly basis.
As the Royals look to take on the Orioles tonight, Pasquantino is eyeing another monster performance after his huge game last night.
