MLB Tuesday Picks


August 12, 2020 12:59 AM

Baseball continues to truck along and today sees another big slate of games.

Here, we've narrowed down our best picks of the day to assist you in spending and of course growing that bankroll.

Today's picks provide a good variety of plus money and short odds that could look nice in a parlay.

Marlins @ Blue Jays

Blue Jays moneyline (-160*)

A losing start so far for the Jays but they should turn that around with a W in this one. Our model has them as a 60% chance of winning.

Royals @ Reds

Royals +1.5 (-120*)

Two teams with losing records this season, we like this one to remain close so the dog at the run line is our pick.

Orioles @ Phillies

Phillies moneyline (-175*)

The Phillies are favorites for a reason and should get the job done today.

Cubs @ Indians

Total runs: over 8 (-120*)

We’re projecting this one to comfortably top the 8 run line, a great bet to put into a parlay.

White Sox @ Tigers

Total runs: Over 9 (-160*)

Another solid option for a parlay, this matchup has runs written all over it. Combine this with the previous pick for some tastier odds.

If you're liking a few of these picks, we suggest putting 4-7 of them into a parlay with BetMGM and get a boost on your odds of up to 40%

Nationals @ Mets

Mets +1.5 (-130*)

We’re projecting the Mets to go really close to winning this one and wouldn’t be surprised if they actually do snatch it. The run line is the safer play but you could definitely take on the plus money for the win.

Diamondbacks @ Rockies

Diamondbacks +1.5 (-190*)

SImilar to the above game where we can very much see an upset win. Play the underdogs at the run line in your daily parlays.

Mariners @ Rangers

Total runs: Over 8.5 (-114*)

A good chance of a run-fest in this one after their matchup yesterday saw 12 runs hit.

Giants @ Astros

Astros moneyline (-185*)

Not much to win here but the Astros are short favorites for good reason. Play them with confidence.

Athletics @ Angels

Total runs: Over 9 (+100*)

Yesterday’s game between these two finished 10-9 to the Angels and we’re projecting it to get to double figures again.


Padres @ Dodgers

Padres +1.5 (-145*)

The Padres are a serious threat to upset the favorites here but the run line is our suggested play. Another good one for a parlay.
