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


Tigers @ Athletics

BET: πŸ”₯
Tigers at the moneyline with FanDuel Sportsbook (+134)

πŸ“ˆ 4.4% edge on the sportsbooks

We love finding the edge on sportsbook odds here at Dimers, and today, our projection data has identified a nice one on the underdog Tigers against the A's. Although Oakland has had the wood on the series so far, claiming the first two games, their form prior wasn't exactly earth shattering. This is just a smart play at + odds.

Psst, if you sign up to FanDuel Sportsbook now, your first bet will be risk-free up to $1,000, meaning if you lose, you get a second chance via bonus bets in your account!

Giants @ Marlins


BET: πŸ”₯ Total runs OVER 7.5 (-119) with William Hill Sportsbook

πŸ“ˆ 56.2% probability

San Francisco have been incredible to begin the season, keeping teams honest and chalking up wins. They come up against a Miami team who have been scoring well in the past few games, with the Over going 3-0-1 in their last four. We're predicting that run to continue.

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 $2021 - 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.

Dodgers @ Padres


BET: πŸ”₯ Padres at the moneyline with BetMGM (+135)

πŸ“ˆ 5.6% edge on the sportsbooks

Two of the league's best teams clash this weekend and we already know there will be no letting up as either one looks to stake their claim as the World Series favorite. 

With Yu Darvish listed as the probable starting pitcher and Fernando Tatis Jr now returned from the injury list, we've got the Padres making a statement.
