We give Valdez the edge in this pitching match-up and while Philadelphia might own an edge in the splits with the sticks Houston gets the check-mark in the bullpen comparison. Plus, the Astros are just the better team and rolling into Game 6 following back-to-back wins in Philly. Plus, the price ain’t too bad. We’re betting Houston to finish this Series off Saturday night. 

Free Pick: 
Take Houston -143
Thursday Nov 03, 2022
In anticipation of a bounce-back effort, we give Verlander the edge in the pitching match-up. Houston also owns the advantage in the bullpen comparison, while the splits with the sticks look about even. We don’t usually like playing against so high a price, but we’re betting the Astros to take Game 5 Thursday night.
 
Free Pick: 
Take Houston -149
Tuesday Nov 01, 2022

We give McCullers the edge in this pitching match-ups, and Houston also owns edges in the splits with the sticks and the bullpen comparison. So we like the Astros here. We also like taking chances. So in, knowing the visitors will bat nine times, we’ll play Houston against the run line at a price of +125.

Free Pick: 
Take Houston on the runline
Saturday Oct 29, 2022
We’re calling this pitching match-up a push, and while Houston owns the better bullpen, Philadelphia owns an edge in the splits with the sticks. Also, the Phillies are just playing inspired baseball, and it’s fun to watch. Just as with Game 1, we see some excellent baseball betting value here, with Philadelphia catching an underdog price.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the Phillies +120
Friday Oct 28, 2022

We give Verlander the edge in the pitching match, but it’s close because we also expect a bounce-back performance from Nola following a poor one last time out. From there, Houston also owns an edge in the bullpen comparison, while the splits with the sticks are about even. But when we add all that up, it doesn’t seem to warrant so high a price. Philadelphia’s playing with some nice verve this postseason, so we like the betting value with the Phillies on that Game 1 line. 

Wednesday Oct 19, 2022
In expectation of a bounce-back performance we give Verlander the check-mark in the pitching match-up. From there we give Houston a short edge in the bullpen comparison while the splits with the sticks look about even. But when we add all that up, and throw in a couple other things, it becomes apparent the line on this game is way too high. Betting baseball is often about betting the value on the dime lines and we’re grabbing the value with Yankees getting that fat underdog price Wednesday night.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the NY Yankees
Tuesday Oct 18, 2022
We give Wheeler a slight edge in the pitching match-up because he’s been so good his last couple of times out against San Diego. We also give Philadelphia a short edge in the splits with the sticks, while the Padres own an edge in the bullpen comparison. So when we add that all up, we come to like the betting value with the Phillies catching the underdog price.
 
Saturday Oct 15, 2022
Cleveland showed some super intestinal fortitude Friday and now gets to play a big game in front of what should be a raucous home crowd. Ask the Phillies and Padres what that can do for a team. Also, we love what McKenzie’s done this season, improving his ERA by two runs over last season! The Guardians are a scrappy bunch, they like to put the ball in play, and they’ve got a great bullpen. Meanwhile, New York struck out 15 times Friday. We’re betting Cleveland to take this Game 3.
 
Free Pick: 
Take Cleveland
Friday Oct 14, 2022

We give Gonsolin the edge in the pitching match-up here, although he’ll probably be on a short leash. But he’ll then turn things over to the best bullpen in Baseball. Meanwhile, we give Los Angeles the checkmark in the splits with the sticks. We’re betting the Dodgers to take Game 3 Friday night.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers
Thursday Oct 13, 2022
We give Cortes the edge in the pitching match-up, but it’s really close. From there, we also give New York the edge in the splits with the sticks while the bullpens are really close. Also, the line on this game seems reasonable. We’re betting the Yankees to take Game 2 Thursday night.
 
Free Pick: 
Take the NY Yankees
Tuesday Oct 11, 2022

We give Cole the edge in the pitching match-up, but it’s closer than first glance might indicate. From there, New York owns an edge in the splits with the sticks, while the bullpen comparison is tough to call. So when we add up the differences, they don’t warrant so high a price. The line on this game is inflated because one team is called the “Yankees,” they’ve got a guy named “Judge” in the line-up, and the pitcher is named “Cole.” But the betting value for Game 1 resides with Cleveland at that fat underdog price.

Free Pick: 
Take Cleveland
Sunday Oct 09, 2022

We're calling this pitching match-up a wash because both guys had great overall numbers this season, both are going pretty well as of late, and both have had some trouble recently against these opponents. But we do expect a bounce-back effort from Bassitt following a poor one last time out. From there, we give New York a slight edge in the bullpen comparison and a larger edge in the splits with the sticks. Plus, the Mets played 31 games over .500 this season against right-handed starters. We're betting New York Sunday night. 

Free Pick: 
Take the NY Mets -140
Friday Oct 07, 2022
 
Manoah gets the check mark in the pitching match-up, and while Seattle owns an edge in the bullpen comparison, Toronto owns the edge in the splits with the sticks. Also, the Blue Jays are 31 games over .500 this season against right-handed starters. We’re taking Toronto to take Game 1 of this series Friday.
Free Pick: 
Take Toronot -135
Friday Oct 07, 2022

Scherzer owns the edge in the pitching match-up here but it’s close. From there New York owns a short edge in the bullpen comparison and a solid edge in the splits with the sticks. The Mets also played 27 games over .500 at home this season and 31 games over .500 against right-handed starters. We like New York to take the opener of this series Friday.

Free Pick: 
Take the NY Mets -145
Friday Sep 30, 2022

We give Fried a slight edge in the pitching match-up because he's going better as of late than deGrom. From there, it looks like the splits with the sticks are about even, but Atlanta owns a short edge in the bullpen comparison. Plus, it's getting an underdog price at home. We're betting the Braves Friday night.

Free Pick: 
Take Atlanta +113
Thursday Sep 29, 2022
This pitching match-up looks about like a wash, as do the splits with the sticks and bullpen comparison. So the line on this game is about right. But Tampa Bay is still trying to secure a playoff berth while Cleveland is already locked into its playoff spot, which brings the Guardians’ motivation into question. Also, while the Rays batted 1/10 with RISP Wednesday in our minds that just sets them up for a little better luck next time out. We’re betting Tampa Thursday night.
 
Free Pick: 
Take Tampa Ba
Wednesday Sep 28, 2022

We give Urias the edge in the pitching match-up because of the better recent track record against these opponents. From there, Los Angeles owns the best line-up in the Majors against RH pitching and perhaps the best bullpen in Baseball. So we like LA here. We also like chasing better prices. So in knowing the visitors will bat nine times, we'll give the 1.5 runs against the run line, catching +123.

Free Pick: 
Take the Dodgers -1.5 +123
Tuesday Sep 27, 2022

Mikolas owns the edge in the pitching match-up while the splits with the sticks and the bullpen comparison come out about even. Also, St. Louis has an MVP candidate in Goldschmidt, while Milwaukee strikes out too much. So we're betting the Cardinals Tuesday night.

Free Pick: 
Take St. Louis -115
Saturday Sep 24, 2022

We give Kershaw the edge in the pitching match-up, and while St. Louis owns a slight edge with the sticks, Los Angeles owns a slight edge in the bullpen comparison. However, when we add that all that up, it does not warrant so high a price. Betting baseball often comes down to betting value, and we like the value with the Cardinals getting that fat underdog price.

Free Pick: 
Take St. Louis
Tuesday Sep 20, 2022

We give Stripling the edge in the pitching match-up in part because Toronto is 8-1 over his last nine starts. From there, the Blue Jays own the edges in both the splits with the sticks and in the bullpen comparison. Also, Toronto is 28 games over .500 this season against RH starters. We're betting the Blue Jays Tuesday night.

Free Pick: 
Take the Jays -119
