Here is what the data is telling us for today's MLB games โฌ


Cubs @ Indians

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ
Total runs OVER 8 with Unibet (-118)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 55.3% probability 

After Shane Bieber pitched in the series opener between Chicago and Cleveland yesterday, expect the sluggers to loosen up the shoulders today and let it rip as they come up against two pitchers who have been conducive to run scoring so far this season. We've got the Cubs' Zach Davies (6.30 ERA, 10.8 hits per 9) and the Indians' Sam Hentges (5.00 ERA, 14 hits per 9) taking the mound as our sacrificial lambs, ready to be slaughtered. The Over looks great here.

Phillies @ Nationals


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Total runs OVER 8 with DraftKings Sportsbook (-118)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 54.9% probability

We cashed the Phillies at plus-money when they took care of business against the Nats last night but today we're looking at the run total with our projection data returning to us a high probability that this one will be a runfest.

The most interesting form line from this one is the Phillies and their run against left-handed starting pitchers. The Over is 4-0 in their last four games in which they've faced a left-hander. Can you guess what hand Washington SP Jon Lester throws with? You're picking up what I'm putting down.

Heads up, this Friday is Free to Bet Day with DraftKings Sportsbook! That's the holiday that celebrates the repeal of PASPA, the law that allowed states in the US to offer sports betting.

Angels @ Astros


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Total runs OVER 8 with BetMGM (-115)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 59% probability, 8% edge

Three consecutive picks where our data has advised of a game going over 8. I'm not sure if you're into numerology, but the number 888 is a symbol of positivity which can only mean one thing: the Gambling Gods are shining down upon us today as look to keep our hot streak in tact!

Back to the pick itself, and the Angels and Astros have legitimate bad blood. They'll be wanting to bash the hell out of each other which means runs and lots of them. LA still own the unfortunate honor of having one of the worst run defenses in the league while Houston rank in the top four for run offense. Get ready for some explosive baseball.
