CINCO BEST BETS. WE STILL BET RESPONSIBLY



Los Angeles Angels @ Cleveland Guardians(-1.5)

DK +154

FD +160


This Best Bet's logic is the same verse as yesterday's. Cookie Carrasco is a shell of his former self, but even he should be fine against such a poor lineup. I'm familiar with Griff Canning's game and the Guard Dawgs are going to bloop him to death.



Seattle Mariners(-1.5) @ Houston Astros

DK +164

FD +160


Seattle's starting pitching is ridiculous. As of 5/4 the starters have gone 20 consecutive games allowing 2 or fewer runs. Bryce Miller has been responsible for 3 of those 20 starts, and has not given up more than 2 runs since his first start of the season. On the season he's got a 2.04 ERA over 35.1 IP, punching out 39 batters with a WHIP of 0.88. Baseball Savant likes his stuff too.


In particular, his pitch mix is devastating and crafted to keep batters off balance. The Four Seamer is his bread that sets up his Splitter butter. The Splitter becomes even more effective in conjunction with his sinker, since it gives him two great pitches to attack the bottom of the zone with. Even if bat are getting to his pitches, they're getting topped and pulled to infielders. All and all, he's having an awesome start to his second season.



Hunter Brown is having the opposite kind of season for Houston

This page is made worse by the 23 IP over 6 starts with a 9.78 ERA. None of his pitches are working. he's getting chased early and often. He's just straight up not having a good time out there, which is all the more reason to hammer the M's.



Miami Marlins @ Oakland A's(-1.5)

DK +164

FD -215


I don't know why Fan Duel doesn't know how awful the Marlins are while simultaneously not seeing how good the A's run line record is. They're lighting money on fire. The A's pitch like demons and hit enough home runs to manufacture consistent offense. They're a good ball club.
