It’s another great day for baseball betting! Here, we’re taking a look and betting on the top five games on Wednesday’s schedule.
Cincinnati Reds vs. New York Mets – 1:10 PM ET
The Cincinnati Reds have lost two games in a row to the New York Mets. With their overall record falling to 44-65, the Reds are up against a wall here. On the mound tonight is T.J. Zeuch, who has yet to throw for the Reds. As a team, Cincinnati is batting .239, which is well under what the Mets are averaging.
The New York Mets have won five games in a row including the last two against the Reds. With an overall record of 72-39, the Mets lead the NL East. Today is the final game of the series and the Mets are looking to pull off a sweep. With the 9-3 Taijuan Walker on the mound, they should be able to. Walker has an ERA of 3.45 over 104.1 innings. We’ll take the Mets at -320.
San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres – 4:10 PM ET
Jumping a little further ahead today is when we’ll see the Giants at the Padres. These two NL West teams are fighting for their spot in the division. The San Francisco Giants are third in the division with a record of 54-56. On the mound tonight is Jakob Junis, Junis has gone 4-3 this season with an ERA of 3.05. He faces some tough competition in SP Sean Manaea.
The Padres sending out Sean Manaea is a good sign for them. This season, Manaea has a 6-6 record and a 4.74 ERA. It might not be pretty but he knows how to win games. The Giants also have a slight edge at the plate over the Giants. The team has a batting average of .240 compared to the Giants’ .235. Still, we’ll take Jakob Junis and the Giants at +140.
Atlanta Braves vs. Boston Red Sox – 7:10 PM ET
The Atlanta Braves come into this game with a record of 65-46. They’ve lost three of their last five games but won last night, 9-7 over the Red Sox. Getting the start tonight is Kyle Wright, who has an ERA of 3.22 and a record of 13-5. Wright has thrown 124 strikeouts over the span of 128.2 innings. With Wright on the mound, they have a great chance of winning.
Getting the start for the Boston Red Sox is Nick Pivetta. Pivetta is a consistent pitcher, although he could use some work. He has a record of 8-8 this season with an ERA of 4.51. Where the Red Sox has the edge is at the plate. This season, the Red Sox are batting .253 with an on-base percentage of .314. We’ll take the home team in this one at +122.
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Colorado Rockies – 8:40 PM ET
With a record of 60-49, the St. Louis Cardinals rank first in the NL Central. Up until last night they had quite the win streak going. However, the Colorado Rockies got the best of them yesterday, winning the game 16-5. The Cardinals defense giving up that many runs doesn’t bode well for them tonight. The question is, can they shake off yesterday’s loss?
On the mound for the Cardinals tonight is Jose Quintana. Quintana has a record of 3-5 but an ERA of 3.39. The Colorado Rockies, on the other hand, are starting Kyle Freeland, who is 7-7 with an ERA of 4.56. The Cardinals have an advantage in pitching but not at the plate. This is a tough one but we’ll take the Cardinals tonight at -165.
Minnesota Twins vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – 10:10 PM ET
The final game we’re going to go over is the Minnesota Twins at the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Twins have a record of 57-52 this season after yesterday’s 10-3 loss. The Twins had no answer for the Dodgers batters and that was evident early on. Getting the start today is Sonny Gray, who is 6-3 this season with an ERA of 3.19.
On the opposite side is Ryan Pepiot, one of the Dodgers’ more fresh pitchers. Pepiot has a record of 1-0 this season with an ERA of 2.76. The only problem with Pepiot is that he’s only pitched 16.1 innings. Still, with the amount of scoring the Dodgers did last night, we have to take them at home tonight.
