Here is what the data is telling us for today's MLB games ⏬


 

Angels @ Athletics


BET: 🔥Total runs OVER 7.5
with PointsBet (-108)

📈 54% probability

Shohei Ohtani will be taking the mound tonight after being scratched from yesterday's game because of transport issues actually getting to the stadium, but regardless of his hot form throwing the ball, our data still says this game goes over the 7.5-run total. LA still rank dead last for run defense, giving up 5.72 runs per game. Oakland isn't much better, either, giving up 4.45 runs per game. Games involving starting A's pitcher, Sean Manaea is 6-2 on the Over/Under this year.

But more than just that, when PointsBet is offering free bets like they are in the offer below, why wouldn't you take advantage!?

Padres @ Astros


BET: 🔥 Astros at the moneyline with William Hill Sportsbook (-105)

📈 55.2% probabilitiy 

San Diego head to Houston for the weekend after a tough series against the Brewers that might have taken a little bit out of them. There will be no time to rest, though, with the Astros looking to get back on track after losing four of their last five. Our projections has Houston opening the weekend with a win.

For a play like this, it's hard to look past this offer from William Hill Sportsbook who are giving new customers in certain states a RISK-FREE bet up to $500 - see if your state is one of them here. Basically, you can deposit as much or as little as you like (we recommend around $50) and then place your bet on our play. If we get it right, you cash in! If not, that's okay - they'll give you your money back to use again on another bet.

Giants @ Dodgers


BET: 🔥 San Francisco Giants
 with BetMGM (-112)

📈 61.3% probability

The NoCal vs. SoCal rivalry heats up with the Giants and Dodgers continuing their series that saw LA scrape by last night. While the Giants have been unable to get the win in any of the four games they've played against the Dodgers so far this season, our projections says this one stays close again at the very least.
