Suggested Moneyline and Over/Under plays HERE

Diamondbacks @ Rockies

BEST: Rockies +1.5 (-150*) has a 60% probability

Our projection model has this one going down to the wire so the +1.5 at the run line is the smart play in this one. 

Suggested Moneyline and Over/Under plays HERE

 

Athletics @ Angels

BEST: Athletics +1.5 (-190*) has a 65% probability

Low odds but our modelling is very strong on this one, giving the underdog Athletics an almost two-thirds chance of covering against the Angels.

Suggested Moneyline and Over/Under plays HERE

Cubs @ Indians

BEST: Indians moneyline (-120*) has a 55% probability

Our data agrees with the sportsbooks on this one and sees Cleveland getting the dub. A nice play to add to a parlay.

Suggested Run line and Over/Under plays HERE

Marlins @ Blue Jays

BEST: Total runs: Over 8.5 (-115*) has a 55% probability

These two combined for 9 runs in yesterday’s matchup and our computer says they should be able to get to that mark again.

Suggested Moneyline and Run line plays HERE

Royals @ Reds

BEST: Royals +1.5 (-178*) has a 65% probability

The sportsbooks have this one as close, as shown by the low odds on the dogs at the run line. Our projections have them as a massive 65% chance of covering.

Orioles @ Phillies

BEST: Orioles +1.5 (-130*) has a 57% probability

Our modelling agrees that the Phillies should be favorites in this one, but it’s projecting the Orioles to make a game of it and at least cover the run line.

Suggested Moneyline and Over/Under plays HERE

Twins @ Brewers

BEST: Total runs: Over 8.5 (-110*) has a 56% probability

Another game in which our data suggests a high-scoring affair. Take the overs at root for runs from both sides.

Suggested Moneyline and Run line plays HERE

Rays @ Red Sox

BEST: Red Sox +1.5 (-118*) has a 59% probability

The home team are the underdogs in this one but our projections have them as a 59% chance of covering the run line after a disappointing showing last time out.

Suggested Moneyline and Over/Under plays HERE

Mariners @ Rangers

BEST: Total runs: Over 9 (+115*) has a 50% probability

Our model gives this one a 50/50 chance of going over the 9 tun total but with plus money and the chance of money back through a push, it’s great value.

Suggested Moneyline and Run line plays HERE

Padres @ Dodgers

BEST: Padres +1.5 (-140*) has a 58% probability

Our model sees good value in another run line play here. Short odds but the Padres look good to cover in this one.
