MLB Best Bets for September 20, 2022

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

Boston Red Sox vs. Cincinnati Reds – 6:40 PM ETred sox vs reds baseball betting

The Boston Red Sox have a 71-75 record heading into this game. Unfortunately, that record might get worse by starting Brayan Bello, who has a 1-5 record. With a 5.10 ERA, the Red Sox are in a tough position heading into tonight. Even their .259 batting average might not be helpful as they head to Cincinnati to face the Reds.

The Cincinnati Reds are starting Nick Lodolo, who has a 4-6 record this season. Lodolo has an ERA of 3.81 this season and has thrown 113 strikeouts in 87.1 innings. The Reds also have a batting average of .239 and they should be able to win this game. Coming in as +100 underdogs, we’ll take the Reds at home.

Houston Astros vs. Tampa Bay Rays – 6:40 PM ETastros vs rays baseball betting

The Houston Astros have a 97-51 record this season heading into this game. Yesterday, they earned a 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays, marking a 4-1 record over their last five. The Astros have a 47-28 record on the road and come into this game as +115 underdogs. With a batting average of .247 this season, the Astros are a great option tonight.

The Tampa Bay Rays are sending out Shane McClanahan, who has a 12-5 record with a 2.13 ERA. McClanahan has thrown 187 strikeouts over the course of 152.1 this season. However, they have a slightly worse batting average than the Astros do. We’ll go with the Astros on the road +115 over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Detroit Tigers vs. Baltimore Orioles – 7:05 PM ETtigers vs orioles baseball betting

With a record of 56-91, the Detroit Tigers have a 25-46 record on the road. Getting the start is Joey Wentz, who has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 4.15 this season. At the plate, the Tigers have a poor average of .229 and an on-base percentage of .285. Unfortunately, the Tigers don’t have much of a shot against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Orioles are sending out the 5-2 Austin Voth, who has a 4.36 ERA this season. At the plate, Baltimore has a .235 batting average and an on-base percentage of .304. They’ve gone 2-3 over their last five games but we see a win for the Orioles tonight at -205.

Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves – 7:20 PM ETnationals vs braves baseball betting

The Washington Nationals come into the game as +260 underdogs. The 6-18 Patrick Corbin will get the start tonight, boasting an ERA of 6.11 this season. At the plate, however, the Nationals are pretty incredible, batting .251. Although they’re heavy underdogs, we wouldn’t count the Nationals out of winning this game.

The Atlanta Braves are the second-place team in the NL East with a 92-55 record. They’re only a few games behind the New York Mets and a win here would help. After winning their last four games, the Braves are -335 heading into this game. Charlie Morton is on the mound for the Braves tonight and we’ll take the Braves -335.

St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Diego Padres – 9:40 PM ETcardinals vs padres baseball betting

At the opening of this three-game series, the St. Louis Cardinals are actually underdogs here. Coming in at +100, St. Louis is sending out Adam Wainwright, who has a record of 11-9. With an ERA of 3.29, Wainwright is giving the Cardinals a good chance to win this game.

The San Diego Padres are sending Mike Clevinger who has a 5-7 record this season. Clevinger has a 4.47 ERA and has struggled late this season. At the plate this season, the Padres are hitting .240 and have a record of 38-31 at home. We’ll go with the Cardinals in this one +100 over the Padres.
