MLB Best Bets Today

  • Yankees RL -1.5 (-105) vs. Red Sox
  • Blue Jays (-120) vs. Mariners
  • Giants ML vs. Padres (-105)

Yankees RL -1.5 (-105) vs. Red Sox

I’m sure that in the lead-up to this series that the Red Sox were looking forward to gaining some ground on the first-place Yankees. Instead, Boston dropped both of the first two games by a combined score of 18-10. The Yankees covered last night in a 12-5 win and I think they pull off another ATS victory on the road tonight. 

Jordan Montgomery had a shaky end to June, but looked good in his last start against the Guardians last week. Montgomery struck out eight and allowed just one earned run in five innings. On top of this, the Yankees' offense has been insanely good lately with 34 total runs scored in their last three games combined.

They have Boston’s number and I believe that continues in Game 3 of this series.  

Blue Jays (-120) vs. Mariners

Alex Manoah is coming off maybe his worst start of the season on Monday against the lowly Oakland Athletics. The 24-year-old righty coughed up four earned runs in 5 ⅔ innings with two strikeouts and two walks. However, Manoah still has a 2.33 ERA and 0.99 WHIP on the year with a 9-3 record. All three of those stats rank him in the top 10 of the league.

All this is to say that I’m not too worried about Manoah coming off that L. He’s been dominating much better lineups than this and I think a bounce-back performance is in order.

He need to step up if the Jays hope to slow down a streaking Mariners team that took the first two games of this series already. 

Giants ML (-105) vs. Padres

I think it’s safe to say that the San Francisco Giants are in a sizable slump right now. They are 2-8 in their last 10 games and are now 6.5 games behind the Padres for second place in the NL West. The Giants also lost the first two games of this series by a combined score of 8-4.

Their starter tonight, Carlos Rodón, is also struggling a bit after giving up four earned runs in five innings to the Diamondbacks on Monday. But, overall Rodón has been great this year with a 2.87 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. The left-hander also ranks seventh in the MLB in total strikeouts. 

I like his chances to get back on track against the Padres despite a dangerous lineup on the other side. Rodón has a very good .194 batting average against the current Padres roster with 15 strikeouts in 56 at-bats.
