April 13th, 2021 MLB/NBA Betting Tips

A 2-1 record in MLB last night.

It was very close with our Yankees 0.5 First 5 Innings play, but they got it done in the top of the fifth thanks to a Kyle Higashioka two-run homerun. Gerrit Cole was excellent allowing only one run across six innings with 8 strikeouts.

We also got the win with the over on the Angels/Royals game. This one went over in the seventh and end with the Angels doing it by themselves, 10-3. Ohtani and Trout combined for five RBIs in this game, including a 119 MPH double from Ohtani. Just absolutely smoked.

Greinke had a bad game and the Astros offense didn’t show up for our lone loss.

Back with a couple of MLB tips today, plus one NBA tip.

San Diego Padres at Pittsburgh Pirates Betting Tips:


Starter FIP- wRC+ Rank L14 Rank Bullpen Rank L14 Rank Park
SDP Blake Snell 74 108 6 112 7 87 1 73 4
PIT Chad Kuhl 100 89 29 98 13 103 26 101 11 98

This is the system’s favorite game of the day by a large margin. The Pirates are just not a very good team all around and the Padres are a very good team.

Blake Snell had a 3.24 ERA/4.35 FIP last season with his usual huge strikeout numbers. He should get a boost this season with a move to the National League and match-ups like this one are where he can really feast. As you can see above, the Pirates project to be rank 29th in offense this season.

Chad Kuhl is a league average pitcher while the Padres are a top-ten offense. They should get it done early.

I’m not a fan of this price, but the system says it’s the best way to bet this game and it would be a shame to let a game the system loves so much go to waste.

Bet Padres -0.5 (-145)

Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox Betting Tips:


Starter FIP- wRC+ Rank L14 Rank Bullpen Rank L14 Rank Park
CLE Shane Bieber 67 99 17 107 8 97 13 102 12
CHW Lucas Giolito 60 102 15 114 6 91 5 94 10 99

A true ace battle in Chicago today with two of the American League Cy Young favorites doing battle.

The projections slightly prefer Giolito and he has a very kind match-up against this very middle-of-the-road offense of the Indians. Gio had a 3.48 ERA/3.19 FIP in 2020 with a giant strikeout rate. I can definitely see him having a huge game here.

Bieber is just as good though and had a fantastic 2020 season with a 1.63 ERA/2.07 FIP. He draws a really tough match-up today against this White Sox offense. Bieber has looked human in his first two starts with at least two runs allowed, high walks, and a homer in each of his first two starts. Those starts came against the Royals and Tigers, the White Sox are a lot tougher than each of them.

The nod goes to the White Sox bullpen here as well and they are worth taking a full game bet on.

Miami Heat at Phoenix Suns Betting Tips:

The Suns are playing their third game in four nights and the second half of a back-to-back. IOt is also their fifth game in seven nights. Just a brutal schedule and I have to think they are going to start to feel the effects here. Especially against a tough defense like the Heat.

Miami has won six of their last seven games and comes into this game with rest. This will only be their third game in the past seven days. That makes a difference and the Heat should be able to grind this one out.
