MLB Best Bets for September 14, 2022

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.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – 12:35 PM ETpirates vs reds baseball betting

The first game that we’re going to go over today is between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds. The Pirates, with a record of 54-88, have won three games in a row. All of these games were against the Reds and they’ll look for the sweep tonight. On the mound is Roansy Contreras, who is 5-4 with a 3.29 ERA.

The Cincinnati Reds are sending out Nick Lodolo, who has a 4-5 record this season. With a 3.78 ERA, Lodolo only comes in slightly behind Contreras. The Reds desperately need a win after losing their last six games. However, we’ll take the Pirates again at +135.

Colorado Rockies vs. Chicago White Sox – 2:10 PM ETrockies vs white sox baseball betting

These two teams have had a pretty great series so far. Last night was a close 4-2 loss for the Colorado Rockies who will look to bounce back today. The 8-9 Kyle Freeland will get the start on the mound with an ERA of 4.63. Again, the Rockies will have to rely on their batters who have a team average of .258.

The Chicago White Sox have gone 4-1 over their last five games. With a record of 73-69, they’re currently second in the AL Central after passing the Twins. On the mound is Dylan Cease, one of the best pitchers in MLB. He has a record of 14-6 with a 2.06 ERA and we’ll take the White Sox -250 today.

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants – 3:45 PM ETbraves vs giants baseball betting

The Atlanta Braves finally broke a three-game losing streak last night. They beat the Giants 5-1 and improved their record to 88-54. They’re still second in the NL East, however, due to those three losses. On the mound tonight is the 8-5 Charlie Morton with a 4.08 ERA. Although Morton hasn’t been great this year, he’s a reliable pitcher.

The San Francisco Giants have a record of 68-74 but are 38-33 at home. Before yesterday’s loss, the Giants were on a three-game winning streak. They’ll start the 12-8 Carlos Rodon, who has an ERA of 2.93. We’ll actually take the Giants at home +100 over the Braves tonight.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Washington Nationals – 7:05 PM ETorioles vs nationals baseball betting

Jumping ahead into the evening, we’ll see the Baltimore Orioles face the Washington Nationals. With a record of 74-67, the Orioles are fourth in the AL East. They were able to earn a 4-3 win over the Nationals yesterday and search for another today. Helping them earn one is Tyler Wells, who has a 7-6 record and a 3.91 ERA.

Getting the nod for the Nationals is struggling pitcher Patrick Corbin. Corbin has a record of 6-18 with an ERA of 6.30. With a record and ERA that bad, we’ll have to go with the Orioles on the road. They have a worse batting lineup but they’ve got the advantage on the mound.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. St. Louis Cardinals – 7:45 PM ETbrewers vs cardinals baseball betting

Our final game of the night is between the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals. The Brewers are second in the NL Central, following closely behind the Cardinals. The 10-6 Corbin Burnes will face off against the 10-9 Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals. Burnes has the better ERA at 2.93 but Wainwright has the better backup.

The St. Louis Cardinals have a .256 batting average as a team, which will definitely help. Wainwright has an ERA of 3.33, which isn’t much worse than Burnes either. Look for the Cardinals to secure this game at home +105 over the Brewers.
