Our MLB Best Bet for Thursday, June 22

We went a perfect 2-0 with our MLB selections yesterday. The Reds got the lucky win for us, thanks to an 8th inning bomb from Jake Fraley. The Giants also put us in the W column with a 4-2 win over the Padres. The only thing that could stop us last night was the rain, as the Atlanta vs. Philadelphia game was postponed due to mother nature not cooperating.

That brings us to 72-52 on the year. Let's stay HOT with our MLB best bet for Thursday, June 22. Let's ride! FYI: This game starts at 1 PM Eastern, so get those bets in early!

Best Bet: Diamondbacks (-145)

With such a light card today, we're only rolling with one best bet, but it's one that we like quite a bit. The Arizona Diamondbacks have been arguably the biggest surprise in the National League. They're currently 45-30 and on pace to win around 88 games, according to our projections.

Arizona's offense gets it done in a wide variety of ways. Yesterday, they stole 7 bases to gain a comeback win over Milwaukee. The D'Backs also rank 6th in runs scored, 4th in batting average, and 5th in OPS. The Nats rank 22nd, 7th, and 22nd in those categories, respectively.

Corbin Carroll is having a rookie season for the record books! He's hitting .298 with 16 home runs and 40 RBI this season, so it's easy to see why he's the heavy favorite for NL Rookie of the Year at all online sportsbooks. Carroll should be able to feast against Nats starter Jake Irvin.

Speaking of Irvin, he pitched against Arizona just a couple of weeks ago on June 6th. The D'Backs roughed him up for 4 runs in 4 innings, which is a big reason why we don't mind laying this price with Zona today.

Arizona has also played well of late on the road, as they've won 7 of their last 8 ball games on the highway. They've also won 8 of their last 10 games against the Nationals. Our power ratings made this line Arizona -165, so let's jump on the D'Backs train for an early winner!
