Bets of the Day: April 24th

Let's have a day and win some money, shall we?

I am happy to announce that my losing streak is over.

After posting ten losing bets in a row, Corbin Burnes and the Milwaukee Brewers did me a solid Tuesday night as they defeated the San Diego Padres (+100 ML). I appreciate you, Corbin. Now that the awful losing streak is behind us, let’s get make some bets of the winning variety. It will be a long road in getting back in the positive, but I think it’s possible.


Mariners O/U 3.5 runs


The Seattle Mariners have gotten off to a nice start this season, no doubt about it. With a record of 12-8, they currently sit second in the AL West.

Although their offense isn’t filled with boppers, the likes of Mitch Haniger, Ty France, and Kyle Seager have helped them average over four runs per game. Shoutout to Haniger for making it all the way back from just the most terrible injury.

Today, the Mariners get to face Nathan Eovaldi (3-1, 3.04 ERA) and the Boston Red Sox. Although Eovaldi has been nice this season, he did allow four runs on nine hits in his last start against the White Sox. That said, his Red Sox did give him a huge lead early on in the game so perhaps he didn’t feel pressured to be perfect. Nevertheless, I like the Mariners to put up some runs today. A 3.5 team run total seems low to me.

Pick: Mariners Over 3.5 runs (-108 DK)


Gerrit Cole O/U 8.5 Strikeouts


If you are a fan of great starting pitching, tonight’s matchup between Cleveland and the Yankees is the game for you. We have Gerrit Cole (2-1, 1.82 ERA) facing off against Shane Bieber (2-1, 2.45 ERA).

As of right now, these two are among the favorites when it comes to Cy Young odds. Over 24.2 innings pitched this season, Cole has struck out 39 hitters. Although Cleveland as a whole doesn’t strike out a ton in comparison to other teams (23.5 percent team K rate), I think Cole will be able to rack up some Ks.

When it comes down to it, Cleveland doesn’t have a good offense. Cole will cruise. This season, he hasn’t struck out less than eight once.

Pick: Gerrit Cole over 8.5 strikeouts (-121 DK)


Blue Jays at Rays 1st Half O/U 4.5


Looking at the pitching matchup, we have Brent Honeywell (0-0, 2.70 ERA) against Robbie Ray (0-1, 1.80 ERA).

Honeywell will serve as the opener in today’s game for the Rays. He’s appeared in two games this season. In the first one, he tossed two scoreless innings striking out two. In the second one, he allowed one run on two hits and two walks over 1.1 innings.

As for Ray, he’s made two five-inning starts. In the first one, he allowed two earned runs. In the second, he did not allow a run despite walking six. Although the ERA totals are low for these two pitchers, I feel like today is the day where the dam breaks and some runs are scored, especially early on.

Pick: Over 4.5 first-half runs (-115 FD)
