Three Ways You Can Gamble $15 on Monday, June 5Jun 5, 2023, 5:41AM
The amount of sport we can bet on during any given day (especially Mondays) may be thinning out around this time of year, but that doesn't mean there still isn't money to be made. As we wheel around into a fresh week, we've found some crafty ways that you can spend a little and win a lot today.
Three Ways to Bet $15 on Monday
1. Bet $5, Win $200 with DraftKings
BET: Pirates to win vs. Athletics (+4000)
If you haven't already jumped on with DraftKings, now really is the time to do it. The sportsbook has upped their sign-up offer, giving new users $200 in bonus bets as soon as they place a $5 moneyline wager on any sport. While the bet doesn't necessarily have to win, it's still nice to see one go through the hole every now and then, which is why we're starting this night off by putting $5 on the Pirates to blitz the Athletics.
We all know how bad Oakland are, but they're particularly bad when JP Sears starts on the mound. Sears has a 4.37 ERA on the season and is yet to record a win in 2023. They've now lost four games in a row, with their only two wins in the past two weeks coming against a Braves side who got caught on the wrong end of a west coast trip. With this promo, which essentially gives us +4000 odds on the Pirates, it's the perfect way to start the week off with some bankroll.
2. Take Our Best Home Run Pick
BET: Yordan Alvarez 1+ HR (+330)
Everyone loves a dinger, and we're no exception. Lucky for you, we have an in-form home run predictor model that you can find right here, giving you the lowdown on all of our top home run plays, as well as prop bets for the rest of Monday's MLB and NHL Stanley Cup Finals game.
As it stands, our model's favorite home run play of the night is for Yordan Alvarez to go yard against the Blue Jays, detecting a 5.5% edge on the odds offered by the sportsbook. Toronto will be sending Alek Manoah to the bump. Manoah has given up a home run in eight of his 12 starts this season and could be vulnerable against the might of the Astros hitters, particularly Alvarez who is riding high after hitting a home run just a couple of days ago against the Angels.
3. Generate a Free Parlay
BET: Padres/Cubs u8, Reds/Brewers u9.5, Matt Chapman 1+ Hit (+438)
If you've been coming to Dimers for a while, you've probably seen our new tool called the Parlay Picker. If you haven't, you're missing out.
Simply put, our Parlay Picker does all the hard work of sourcing our predictive analytics model's best bets of the day and packages them into a parlay, allowing you to filter by sport, bet type, as well as risk appetite.
Today, our model loves a couple of Unders in the MLB with Padres vs. Cubs and Reds vs. Brewers both tipped to go under, while we're also throwing in Blue Jays hitter Matt Chapman to record a hit against the Astros.
A $5 bet on these legs would return $26.92!
Remember to gamble responsibly and set limits on your betting activities. It's important to approach sports betting as a form of entertainment, rather than relying on it for financial gain. Set a budget for yourself and stick to it, and never bet more than you can afford to lose.
