We delivered a solid winner on Wednesday for our followers here at the Sportsbook Room as the LA Dodgers and Oakland Athletics easily played under the total of seven runs. LA continued their difficulty hitting in the spacious ballpark of Oakland and their struggles continue with Matt Kemp sidelined for most of the month of June due to a bad hamstring. Tom Milone goes a completed game nine innings and allowed the Dodgers just three hits Milone loves pitching at Oakland and that was the angle we followed as we expected the Athletics starter to have success in this start. Nathan Eovaldi went six innings and allowed three earned runs so Milone’s gem gave us some cushion to get under this total. Our best betting pick from Thursday comes from interleague baseball as the Minnesota Twins and Pittsburgh Pirates conclude their three game series. The Twins and Pirates will begin from Pittsburgh at 7PM Eastern Time and the MLB package delivers the live national television broadcast. With our MLB best bet we will play on the Minnesota Twins and Pittsburgh Pirates to play under the total of 8 ½ runs. The odds from Minnesota and Pittsburgh come courtesy of BetOnline sportsbook.
The betting odds opened up in this MLB contest with the home club Pittsburgh Pirates favored by -155 odds with the take back on the road team Minnesota Twins at +140 odds. The run over under came in at 8 ½ runs. Money early has landed on the side of home team as the Pittsburgh Pirates are now favored by -160 odds with the Twins now returning +145 odds. The over under has not moved off of the opener of 8 ½ runs. Those betting the Pittsburgh Pirates on the run line and laying the -1 ½ runs will get back +170 odds. Bettors playing on the Minnesota Twins on the run line and taking the +1 ½ runs will lay -185 odds for the wager on the run line.
Taking the hill for the Minnesota Twins tonight will be Liam Hendricks. The Twins right hander gets upgraded today as he faces an anemic hitting Pittsburgh Pirates club that pushed across just 2.9 runs per game in their home ballpark. The Minnesota bats have been struggling producing runs with just 3.3 run average over their past seven games. The Twins have scored two runs in each of the two games at Pittsburgh in this series. This game will be played in a National League Park meaning a DH will not be used so both pitchers will hit aiding our cause for the under to come in tonight.
The Pittsburgh Pirates will send right hander James McDonald to the mound tonight to face the Twins batting lineup. McDonald has been money at home with a miniscule ERA of just 1.75 in seven starts with a WHIP of 0.92 working 46 1/3rd innings on the season. I expect the Pirates to lead in this game meaning they wont get the last at bat tonight which helps the under in this contest. With two weak hitting clubs take the under and before you do get sportsbook promotion codes.
