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.
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates – 1:35 PM ET
The St. Louis Cardinals have a record of 82-58 this season, with a 35-34 record on the road. Today, they’ll have Jose Quintana on the mound, who has a 5-6 record this season. Quintana has a 3.41 ERA this season, with a 3.41 ERA. The Cardinals have a .257 batting average this season, one of the best in the league.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have a record of 28-42 at home this season. With Mitch Keller on the mound, the Pirates will be starting a 5-10 pitcher with a 4.22 ERA. Between these two, the smarter bet is the Cardinals on the road -210.
Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers – 2:10 PM ET
The Cincinnati Reds have a record of 56-81 this season, ranking fourth in the NL Central. On the mound tonight is Justin Dunn, who has a 1-2 record this season. Dunn also has an ERA of 4.82 over the course of 28 innings. Against the Brewers, this might not be good enough.
The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Reds 5-1 last night. In an effort to have the same success tonight, they’ll send out the 9-4 Brandon Woodruff. Woodruff has an ERA of 3.41 over 121.1 innings pitched this season. The Brewers have a slight disadvantage at the plate but they should be able to win this one -292.
Toronto Blue Jays vs. Texas Rangers – 2:35 PM ET
Another afternoon game worth watching is the Toronto Blue Jays at the Texas Rangers. The Blue Jays have a record of 78-60 and are 40-31 on the road. Getting the start tonight is the 3-1 Trevor Richards, who has an ERA of 4.72. The Blue Jays also have a team batting average of .262, which is far better than the Rangers.
After yesterday’s 11-7 loss, the Texas Rangers are looking to bounce back tonight. On the mound today is Martin Perez, who is 10-6 with a 2.82 ERA. Perez has had a great year but the same can’t be said for the Rangers batters. With a team average of .241, we’ll take the Blue Jays on the road tonight.
Atlanta Braves vs. Seattle Mariners – 4:10 PM ET
The Atlanta Braves lost to the Seattle Mariners 3-1 last night. In order to bounce back, they’ll need to be much better at the plate tonight. As a team, the Braves have a batting average of .254 this season compared to the Mariners’ .230. Taking the mound today is the 5-5 Jake Odorizzi, who has a 3.90 ERA.
The Seattle Mariners are starting the 10-13 Marco Gonzales to combat Odorizzi. Gonzales has an ERA of 3.98, which is only slightly worse than Odorizzi. As we mentioned, the Mariners have a team batting average of .230 this season. With a lot on the line for the Braves, we’ll take them on the road at -125.
San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs – 8:00 PM ET
The final game of the night that we’ll go over is the San Francisco Giants at the Chicago Cubs. The Giants with a record of 66-73, rank third in the NL West. On the mound tonight is John Brebbia, one of the best pitchers in their rotation. Brebbia has an ERA of 2.93 and a 6-1 record this season. However, the Giants have underperformed at the plate recently.
With a record of 58-81, the Cubs are looking to bounce back from last night’s loss. They suffered a 5-2 loss to the Giants yesterday, their third in their last five games. On the mound is Wade Miley, who has pitched only 23 innings this year. Still, with a batting average of .241, we’ll take the Cubs at home tonight.
