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.
New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirates – 6:35 PM ET
The best bets of the day begin with one of the best teams in the National League. This season, the New York Mets have a record of 85-50 and lead the NL East. After back-to-back losses to the Washington Nationals, they head to Pittsburgh to face the Pirates. On the mound tonight is the 10-3 Taijuan Walker, who looks to earn a win for the Mets.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are sending out one of their best pitchers as well. Mitch Keller, although 4-10 this season, has an ERA of 4.43 through 124 innings. The key here is that the Pirates have a .219 team batting average compared to the Mets’ .256. Take the Mets on the road at -235 over Pittsburgh.
Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago Cubs – 7:40 PM ET
Yesterday’s game ended in a 10-0 win for the Cincinnati Reds over the Colorado Rockies. Now, the Reds face a new challenge, the Chicago Cubs. After going 3-2 in their last five games, the Reds have a 53-79 record. Getting the start tonight is Justin Dunn, who is 1-2 with a 4.63 ERA.
The Chicago Cubs have a record of 56-78, making them a good match for the Reds. They’ll send out Wade Miley, who is 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA. These teams have a similar batting average as well, with the Reds getting a slight advantage. It’s going to be a close one but after a 10-0 win over the Rockies, we’ll take the Reds +140.
Washington Nationals vs. St. Louis Cardinals – 7:45 PM ET
The Washington Nationals will send out the 0-6 Paolo Espino to face the St. Louis Cardinals. Espino has an ERA of 4.22 this season, allowing 18 home runs in 96 innings. Considering he’s playing some of the best batters in the league, things aren’t looking good for Washington. The good news is he’s backed up by a group that is batting .250 this season.
The St. Louis Cardinals are sending out Jose Quintana, who has a 4-6 record. Quintana has an ERA of 3.47 this season, giving his team the advantage on the mound. The Cardinals are also better at the plate this season, hitting .257. We’ll take the Cardinals over the Nationals at -267.
