We brought home yet another solid winner for the visitors to the Sportsbook room on Tuesday as the Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants easily play under the total of 6 runs last night as the game ended 2-1 in favor of the road team. As expected we got outstanding starting pitching from the Giants Matt Cain and from the Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco and both of them got hardly any run support. Cain has been solid at home this season as the Giants right hander has allowed just two earned runs in his three starts in San Francisco. Nolasco continued his mastery against the Giants hitters. Our MLB best betting pick on Wednesday comes from the National League game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals. The Diamondbacks and Nationals will begin from Washington at 7PM Eastern Time and you can watch this MLB game over the package. Our top MLB pick tonight is playing on the Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals to play under the total of seven runs. The betting line from Arizona and Washington were pulled from BetOnline sportsbook.
The home club Washington Nationals opened up in the betting as a -125 favorite with the take back on the under Arizona Diamondbacks at +115 odds. The run total opened at seven runs. Early money has shown on the road team as Washington is now favored by -122 odds with the road club Arizona Diamondbacks the underdog at +112 odds. The run total has seen early movement at some spots to 6 ½ runs but there are plenty of shops still hanging seven runs. A Washington Nationals bet on the run line laying -1 ½ runs will return +185 odds. Those who play the Arizona Diamondbacks on the run line getting back +1 ½ runs will lay -200 odds.
On the hill for the Diamondbacks on Thursday night to face the Nationals hitters will be left hander Joe Saunders. The crafty lefty has had an outstanding start to the season as he sits with an ERA of 0.90 and WHIP of 0.87 in four starts and 30 innings of work. He is coming off a shutout of the Miami Marlins on Friday as he allowed just three hits in victory.
The Nationals will start right hander Edwin Jackson tonight. Jackson has been sharp as he sits with an ERA just over three and a very good WHIP of 0.97. With a WHIP under one it means he allows just one base runner per inning and that points to good control and no big innings allowed which aids our cause for an under tonight here. Washington has struggled big time in 2012 against left handed pitching as the Nationals average just two runs per game and bats .169 as a team. Over their past seven games the Washington Nationals average just 2.4 runs and their team batting average is a mere .180 in this span. We have two solid starters going tonight in a pitcher friendly park and we have poor offensive production on the Nationals side making the under seven runs the top pick today at best sportsbooks online.
