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


Indians @ White Sox

BET: πŸ”₯
Total runs OVER 7.5 with Unibet (-119)

πŸ“ˆ 56.7% probability 

The Over has gone 7-2-1 in the Indians' last ten games and we've been along for the ride for the most of it, so why would we jump off now?! The great thing about this Cleveland team for bettors is that they can pile on the runs just as well as they can leak them. With star pitcher Shane Beiber keeping the White Sox down last night, the Indians were able to score 5 runs of their own to get the W and the Over. With no Beiber today, look for it to open up even more for both sides.

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.

Mets @ Phillies


BET: πŸ”₯ Mets at the moneyline (+104) with William Hill Sportsbook

πŸ“ˆ 4.2% edge on the sportsbook's odds

Wild windy weather made for a pretty dour game between these two last night so we're hoping for some better conditions for tonight's game where our data has identified an edge on the Mets at plus money. Starting pitcher Taijuan Walker has been effective so far in his time out on the mound for New York with an ERA of 2.14 and could be due for another big game shutting down the Phillies' run offense.

-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.

Dodgers @ Brewers


BET: πŸ”₯Brewers at the moneyline with BetMGM (+108)

πŸ“ˆ 3.9% edge on the sportsbook's odds

Another moneyline underdog play to finish us off because it's hard to ignore the form of starting Milwaukee pitcher Brandon Woodruff. 2-0 in starts so far this season with an ERA of 1.55 and WHIP of 0.72. This guy is lethal right now and we're continuing to ride his hot streak.
