MLB Best Bets for August 28, 2022

It’s another great day for baseball betting! Here, we’re taking a look and betting on the top five games on Sunday’s schedule.

Cincinnati Reds vs. Washington Nationals – 1:35 PM ETreds vs nationals baseball betting

Our best bets of the day begin with a game between the Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals. The Reds, with a record of 50-75, have won two games in a row, both against Washington. Yesterday’s 6-2 win was a great showing for their batters, who are hitting .241 this season. On the mound tonight is the 3-4 Nick Lodolo,, who has an ERA of 4.35.

There’s some bad news for the Washington Nationals, who will start Patrick Corbin tonight. Corbin has a record of 4-17 with a 6.81 ERA this season, With Corbin on the mound, it’ll be tough for the Nationals to secure a win here, so we’ll take the Reds -125.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox – 1:35 PM ETrays vs redsox baseball betting

The Tampa Bay Rays have a record of 69-57 this season, ranking second in the AL East. They’re 8.5 games behind the New York Yankees who lead the division. They’ve also lost their last two games to the Boston Red Sox. Getting the start tonight is the 8-7 Corey Kluber, who matches well against Nick Pivetta.

Pivetta, who is 9-9 with a 4.24 ERA, is on the mound for the Red Sox tonight. The key here is that the Red Sox have a far better batting team, hitting .257 this season. The Rays average of .238 won’t be enough to get a win over Boston tonight. We’ll take Boston at home +105 in the last game of this series.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Chicago White Sox – 2:10 PM ETdiamondbacks vs white sox baseball betting

The Arizona Diamondbacks lead their series against the Chicago White Sox 2-0. Last night, Arizona beat the White Sox 10-5 and they’ll look to do so again today. Zach Davies, who is 2-4 this season with an ERA of 3.86 will get the start for the Diamondbacks. He’s in for a tough match as he faces Dylan Cease of the White Sox.

Cease has a record of 12-6 this season with an ERA of 2.27. Through 139 innings, Cease has thrown 189 strikeouts and allowed only 12 home runs. He gives the White Sox the best chance of all of their pitchers to win tonight. With a strong batting group to back him up, we’ll take Cease and the White Sox -190.

San Diego Padres vs. Kansas City Royals – 2:10 PM ETpadres vs royals baseball betting

After two straight wins over the Kansas City Royals, the San Diego Padres are going for one more. If they can pull it off, they’ll earn the sweep and improve their record to 71-58. Currently, the Padres rank second in the NL West, with a large lead over the third-place team. However, they’re still 18.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Kansas City Royals will send Jonathan Heasley out to the mound tonight. Heasley has a record of 1-7 with a 5.21 ERA this season. He faces Sean Manaea of the Padres who has a 7-6 record with a 4.64 ERA. The Padres are also a much better batting team, so keep that in mind. We’ll go with the Padres on the road at -190 this afternoon.

Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals – 7:00 PM ETbraves vs cardinals baseball betting

Our final game of the night takes place much later in the evening. Tonight, the Atlanta Braves will close their series against the St. Louis Cardinals. With the series tied at 1-1, it all comes down to tonight as this is the last time they’ll play each other. Jake Odorizzi will get the start for the Braves and has a record of 5-5 with an ERA of 3.95.

The St. Louis Cardinals have a record of 73-54 with a 41-22 record at home this season.
Adam Wainwright will get the start for the Cardinals tonight with a 9-9 record and 3.11 ERA. Yesterday, the Cardinals pulled off a 6-5 win over the Braves. With Wainwright on the mound, we’ll take the Cardinals again at -125.
