CLE ML over CIN +103, MIL ML over PIT -153 (+236)
Yesterday, the Twins took care of business but unfortunately the Rays lost in extra innings to Texas. We’ve had a lot of splits the past few days and now sit at 22-22 (+7.17u) on the young MLB season thanks to several parlay hits.
Today, we start out with two somewhat surprising teams near the top of their divisions, the Indians and Reds both at 7-5. Today’s pitching matchup has two below average starters facing off, Logan Allen for the Indians (46 rolling game score) and Jeff Hoffman for the Reds (47.2 rolling game score).
The Reds got off to a hot start due to their offense, but have since lost 4 out of their last 5 games as it’s cooled down significantly. On the contrary, the Indians mainly have been successful this season due to strong pitching and timely hitting.
While this certainly isn’t the Indians offense of the past couple years, they still have enough big bats in the middle of their lineup that can generate runs quickly, so I love the plus money value on Cleveland today.
Next, we have the Brewers at home kicking off a 3 game series with the Pirates tonight. Pittsburgh is playing solid ball right now for a team expected to lose well over 100 games, as they split a 4 game series with the Padres after taking 2 out of 3 from the Cubs.
Both starters (JT Brubaker for the Pirates and Adrian Houser for the Brewers) have pitched decent in both of their starts so far this season but haven’t made it past the 5th inning, meaning this could turn into a bullpen game early.
With the Brewers having the much better overall offensive lineup and bullpen by a mile, they should have no problem taking care of business against the Pirates tonight even if it requires some late inning runs.
As a reminder, I always put 1 unit on the parlay and 2 units on each bet individually. Follow along here.
