Best MLB Bets Today

Mets vs. Phillies, 7:05PM ET

The heavyweights will be out in force on the mound tonight in Philadelphia with Aaron Nola (8-9, 3.07 ERA) up against Chris Bassitt (10-7, 3.27 ERA). Bassitt in particular has been on a tear for the Mets, shutting out his opponents in his last three starts. It's hard to look past a man in such form at the moment, even if the Mets have had some issues with their run offense providing consistent supply. Expect a low scoring game, but one that New York can triumph in.

BET: Mets moneyline (+104)

Blue Jays vs. Yankees, 7:05PM ET

We're no longer in denial about this Yankees slump: they stink. Another rough loss last night at the hands of the Blue Jays who were dominant from the outset on their way to a 9-2 result. Can DimersBOT see any way out for the Yanks? Nope - at least not tonight, with Kevin Gausman (8-9, 3.16 ERA) not likely to give an inch to the New York hitters. We're taking the Blue Jays to keep piling the misery.

BET: Blue Jays moneyline (-102) is rated as a 52% chance according to DimersBOT.

White Sox vs. Guardians, 7:10PM ET

The AL Central is the tightest division in the MLB with three teams all in legitimate contention to take out the division title. We'll know more about the legitimacy of all three contenders by weekend's end with the Guardians and White Sox going head-to-head in Cleveland. The Guards have been surprising all season and they have the edge here tonight with a nice matchup against the struggling Lance Lynn (3-5, 5.62 ERA) of the White Sox. Lynn has been up-and-down all season and is known to lose his way and give up runs with ease. DimersBOT is attacking the relatively small total in this one with Cleveland more then capable of running up the scoreboard.

BET: Total runs OVER 7.5 (-115) is rated a 56% chance by DimersBOT.
