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


Padres @ Pirates

BET: πŸ”₯
Total runs OVER 7.5 with FanDuel Sportsbook (-120)

πŸ“ˆ 57.0% probability 

An amazing series between SD and Pittsburgh comes to an end, but not before a barrage of firepower from both teams, according to our projections. 

The Pirates have proven they've been able to match it with the Padres when it comes to putting up runs and are on a 2-game winning streak over the past two nights. If they can keep that up we know the Padres will make up for a limp night last night and this game is going easily over.

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!

Red Sox @ Twins


BET: πŸ”₯ Red Sox at the moneyline (+143) with William Hill Sportsbook

πŸ“ˆ 5.3% edge on the sportsbook's odds

Yesterday was DOG CITY in the MLB with 12 teams at + odds winning their games at the moneyline. When going over the docket for Thursday's action, our data has the Red Sox as a dog most likely to keep it rolling. Boston have won 8 in a row, three of those against Minnesota in the past two days.

The starting pitcher match up is heavily in the Twins' favor, but given the form lines and the odds on offer, it would be crazy not to make a small wager on this. ESPECIALLY with the sportsbook offer below.

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.

Diamondbacks @ Nationals


BET: πŸ”₯ Arizona Diamondbacks at the run line with BetMGM (-132)

πŸ“ˆ 58.4% probability

A run line with some pretty nice odds, we're taking the advantage with Arizona against Washington. Both teams are sub .500 by a considerable margin. Our projections sees this as a genuinely even match up that could go either way which makes the +1.5 run line the smart option.
