Best Baseball Bets 8/18
Best Baseball Bets for Monday, August 17, 2020.
Yesterday, my bets went 1-2.
Here are my picks for today:
Chicago Cubs -175 against the St Louis Cardinals
Yu Darvish has been solid this season (3-1, 1.88 ERA). Daniel Ponce de Leon has an ERA of almost 7. The Cubs offense has been up and down as of late, but look to get things on track against a pitcher with a WHIP of 1.25.
Oakland A's -150 against the Arizona Diamondbacks
Frankie Montas has been great to start this season while Luke Weaver is 0-3 with an ERA over 11. The A's have won 4 of their last 5 games.
Kansas City Royals/Cincinnati Reds under 8.5 runs
Trevor Bauer and Brad Keller both have ERAs under 1. The Royals offense has cooled off, averaging 2 runs per game in their last 4 games.
Bonus: NBA Playoff Bets
Milwaukee Bucks -12 against the Orlando Magic
This line could be 20 and I would still take the Bucks. The best team in the NBA with the MVP taking on a .500 Magic team.
