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


Rangers @ Twins

BET: πŸ”₯
Total runs OVER 8 with Unibet (-109)

πŸ“ˆ 55.0% probability 

The runs appear set to flow in Minnesota tonight when the Twins and Rangers meet. The Over is 5-0-1 in the Twins' last six games and with starting Minny pitcher Kenta Maeda sporting a 6.56 ERA while also giving up 13.89 hits per nine inning, this one could cash well before the end of the game.

Yo, Virginia! Unibet is now live in VA. Why is that good? Because they're giving you the best welcome offer we've ever seen! For a limited time, you can claim a $100 free bet with Unibet - no deposit required! That's right; just open an account get $100 of absolutely free money to bet with.

Don't miss out! Sign up with Unibet in Virginia today. Not from VA? That's ok. Unibet still offers free $20 bets to new customers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana - no deposit required!

Indians @ Royals


BET: πŸ”₯ Royals at the moneyline (+100) with William Hill Sportsbook

πŸ“ˆ 3.4% edge on the sportsbook's odds

Kansas City fans will get their first look at starting pitcher Daniel Lynch who will be making his debut for the Royals after being selected by them in the 2018 draft. His first assignment appears to be a tough one, with starting Indians pitcher Aaron Civale currently boasting a perfect 4-0 starting record so far this season. Our data projections believe that streak is about to end with the highly rated Lynch at the forefront of proceedings. 

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 @ Rockies


BET: πŸ”₯Giants at the moneyline with BetMGM (+100)

πŸ“ˆ 50.4% probability

It's rare to see a team who is so much better than their opposition starting at an even money price in a game like this, but here we are. The Giants and Rockies played a three game series last week where San Francisco claimed two of the three. Our data projections have them getting the early ascendancy in this one tonight.
