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


Padres @ Giants

BET: πŸ”₯
Giants at the moneyline with Unibet (+123)

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

Are the sportsbooks sleeping on San Francisco? The Giants have the second-best winning percentage in the league currently, behind only the Boston Red Sox, and look to be cruising. A win against these very Padres last night only solidifies DimersBOT's verdict that the Giants are the team to bet on here.

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!

Rays @ Athletics


BET: πŸ”₯ Oakland Athletics at the run line (-140) with William Hill Sportsbook

πŸ“ˆ 60.4% probability

While our projections likes the A's to also win at the moneyline as dogs, we're going to take the added security of the run line in our daily picks article here. Oakland were able to get the win in Game 1 of this series last night in a low scoring affair and with Tyler Glasnow starting on the mound today for the Rays, we're expecting another one. That bodes well for the extra run and a half 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.

White Sox @ Royals


BET: πŸ”₯ Kansas City Royals at the run line with BetMGM (-110)

πŸ“ˆ 52.8% probability 

Another run line play for us on Saturday, and we're getting behind the Royals as they look to even up the weekend series after going down last night 3-0. While the Royals were unable to fire a shot last night, our projections don't expect that kind of form to last.

To best use this pick, you can't go wrong when signing up to BetMGM where new customers you can cash in even if your bet doesn't win!

Simply deposit $20 into your account, place your bet, and then wait for the money to come in, regardless of the result! It's free money.
