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


 

Reds @ Cubs


BET: 🔥Total runs OVER 6.5
 with PointsBet (-115)

📈 56% probability 

This is our MLB play of the day. You'll have to ask the sportsbook traders why they're setting a 6.5-run total line for a game that involves starting Reds pitcher Luis Castillo who has an ERA of 7.61 to go along with 12.55 hits given up per 9 innings, PLUS an Over/Under record of 7-2 in games he's appeared in this season.

A slightly windy day is forecast in Chicago, but our data doesn't think it'll be strong enough to see this Over prevail.

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

Orioles @ White Sox (Gm 2 of doubleheader)


BET: 🔥 Chicago White Sox at the run line with William Hill Sportsbook (+125)

📈 2.1% edge on the sportsbooks' odds

Ultimately this equation is pretty simple: Chicago have one of the league's best offenses, Baltimore have one of the league's worst defenses. The White Sox have a ridiculously good record against left-handed pitching, the O's are starting John Means, a left handed pitcher. Chicago is good, Baltimore is not. Take the plus money run line.

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.

Marlins @ Red Sox


BET: 🔥 Total runs UNDER 8
 with BetMGM (-115)

📈 53.2% probability

When we see Trevor Rogers listed as the starting pitcher for Miami, our eyes usually light up. Although he did have a rough start last time out when taking on the Phillies, we're taking him to bounce back and keep the run totals low against the Red Sox tonight.
