MLB Best Bets for October 2, 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.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals – 2:15 PM ETpirates vs cardinals baseball betting

After losing two straight games to the St. Louis Cardinals, the Pittsburgh Pirates are hoping for a win here. On the mound tonight is the 5-5 Roansy Contreras, who has an ERA of 3.72 this season. At the plate, Pittsburgh has a team batting average of .221, which won’t help them against St. Louis.

The Cardinals have a record of 92-66 and lead the NL Central. With the season coming to a close, they need all the wins they can get. They’ve gone 3-2 over their last five games and are starting the 11-11 Adam Wainwright tonight. Wainwright gives the Cardinals the best chance to win so we’ll take St. Louis -210.

Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago Cubs – 2:20 PM ETreds vs cubs baseball betting

The Cincinnati Reds are currently down 0-2 in this series. Their loss last night marked their fifth straight loss, bringing their record to 60-98. The 2-3 Chase Anderson will get the start on the mound tonight. Anderson has a record of 2-3 with a 4.70 ERA this season.

The Chicago Cubs come into this game as -178 favorites and are starting Marcus Stroman. Stroman has a record of 5-7 with a 3.66 ERA this season over the course of 132.2. They have a team batting average of .239 and an on-base percentage of .311. We’ll go with the Cubs to win this game at home -178.

Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels – 4:07 PM ETrangers vs angels baseball betting

The Texas Rangers lost 3-2 to the Los Angeles Angels last night. After four straight losses, the Rangers come in as +100 underdogs here. Tyson Miller will get the start on the mound tonight, Miller has a record of 1-1 with an ERA of 8.10. Miller isn’t a great option at the mound, especially with the Angels batters.

Los Angeles has a record of 72-86 this season and has won six straight games. On the mound today is Tucker Davidson, who has a 2-7 record and an ERA of 6.80. The Angels have a team batting average of .233, which isn’t great but should do well against Miller. After last night’s win, we’ll take the Angels again here at -120.

Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – 4:10 PM ETrockies vs dodgers baseball betting

German Marquez will get the start for the 65-93 Colorado Rockies tonight. He has a record of 8-13 with a 5.12 ERA this season. The Rockies starting Marquez isn’t going to work out well, especially against the Dodgers batters. The question is, can Colorado who has lost seven games in a row, get a win over the Dodgers today?

The Los Angeles Dodgers have won their last four games heading into tonight. With a record of 110-48, the Dodgers will send out the 15-4 Tyler Anderson. Anderson has an ERA of 2.54 over the course of 173.2 innings. With one of the best batting averages in the league, the Dodgers are the best pick in this one at -305.

New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves – 7:00 PM ETmets vs braves baseball betting

The final game of the night will see the New York Mets face the Atlanta Braves. The Mets, with a record of 98-60, come into this game as +110 underdogs. Although they’ve lost two games in a row, the Mets are hoping to bounce back tonight. The 15-8 Chris Bassitt will get the start tonight, Bassitt has an ERA of 3.27 this season.

The Atlanta Braves have won their last two games, both against the New York Mets. The 9-6 Charlie Morton will get the start tonight with an ERA of 4.29. This game looks as if it’s the perfect chance for the Mets to bounce back, so we’ll take them on the road +110.
