MLB Best Bets for August 7, 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. Milwaukee Brewers – 2:10 PM ETreds vs brewers baseball betting

After yesterday’s 7-5 victory, the Cincinnati Reds face the Brewers again tonight. With an overall record of 43-63, the Reds rank fourth in the NL Central. On the mound tonight is the 5-2 Graham Ashcraft, who has an ERA of 4.12 this season. Although Ashcraft’s winning record is impressive, his opponent has a much better ERA.

Getting the start for the Milwaukee Brewers is Corbin Burnes. Burnes has a record of 8-5 this season with a 2.49 ERA. Through 130 innings, Burnes has thrown 166 strikeouts and allowed just 87 hits. With Burnes on the mound, the Brewers have the best chance of winning this game at home. We’ll take the Brewers at -292 today.

New York Yankees vs. St. Louis Cardinals – 2:15 PM ETyankees vs cardinals baseball betting

The Yankees have suffered four losses in a row after yesterday’s game. They still lead the AL East with a record of 70-38. However, if they continue to play this way there’s a chance they can lose the division. On the mound tonight is Frankie Montas in his first start for the New York Yankees. This season he’s gone 4-9 with an ERA of 3.18 with 109 strikeouts.

The St. Louis Cardinals have a record of 59-48 after beating the Yankees. Holding the first place position in the NL Central, the Cardinals are looking to pull off a sweep. In order to do that, they’ll need a lot of help from starting pitcher Adam Wainwright. Wainwright has a record of 8-8 this season with a 3.11 ERA. Between these two, we’ll take the Cardinals at +115.

Chicago White Sox vs. Texas Rangers – 2:35 PM ETwhite sox vs rangers baseball betting

The Chicago White Sox are coming off of an 8-0 loss to the Rangers yesterday. After a loss that bad, any team would need to bounce back. The impressive thing about Chicago is their batting average of .256. You would think with that kind of average a team should be able to earn a few wins. However, the White Sox have lost two of the games in this series already.

Getting the start for the White Sox is Lucas Giolito, who is 7-6 as a starter. Although his record is over .500, Giolito has a concerning ERA of 5.06. The Texas Rangers are starting Spencer Howard, who has an even worse ERA at 6.82. Although Chicago suffered a rough loss yesterday, we think they’ll bounce back tonight at -155.

Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets – 4:10 PM ETbraves vs mets baseball betting

The games between the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets are always entertaining. Yesterday’s game ended in a 6-2 loss for the Atlanta Braves bringing their record to 64-25. They’ve lost two games in a row now so they’ll need to pull it together tonight. On the mound is Spencer Strider, who has had an impressive season with a 2.79 ERA.

The New York Mets are sending out Jacob deGrom, making this the battle of the pitchers. The good news is that although these pitchers are great, so are the batters. The Braves have a team batting average of .250 falling just under the Mets .259. New York also has a slight edge because they’re playing at home, so we’ll take them -145.

San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – 7:00 PM ETpadres vs dodgers baseball betting

The final game we’re going to go over is the San Diego Padres against the Los Angeles Dodgers. This NL West matchup will feature some of the best pitchers in the league. On one side you have the Padres with Yu Darvish on the mound. Darvish has a 10-4 record this season with an ERA of 3.30. Through 128.1 innings, Darvish has thrown 127 strikeouts.

The question is, can Darvish and the Padres bullpen take on Mookie Betts and the Dodgers batters? At the plate the Dodgers have an average of .259 this season. They’re also starting an incredible pitcher, the 12-1 Tyler Anderson. Anderson’s ERA of 2.89 should be enough to get the Dodgers another win tonight at -135.
