August 23rd, 2018 MLB Betting Tips

An 0-2 record yesterday as our totals just weren’t there.

Just a couple of games I like today. Had some backend issues so I won’t be writing up a long post today. Just a couple tips. One early, one late.

Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians Betting Tips:

The Red Sox really flexed their muscles yesterday, putting up 10 runs in a game started by Carlos Carrasco. I expect more good things from them today with Adam Plutko on the mound. He has a 4.62 ERA/5.66 FIP on the year with 2.22 HR/9. That is not the kind of stat you want against the best offense in baseball.

David Price is on the other mound and while the Indians hit lefties pretty well, I trust him in this one. So much that I am going to lay the runs.

Bet Red Sox -1.5

Minnesota Twins vs. Oakland Athletics Betting Tips:

I feel like I’ve been ignoring the Athletics too much. They have been absolutely on fire and their offense is crushing pitchers right now. A good pitcher to crush? Kohl Stewart. He’s not looked good in his two appearances in the majors and his minor league stats show that continuing.

Trevor Cahill has been very solid as a starter for Oakland with a 3.12 ERA/3.10 FIP and I trust him against this Twins offense that is dealing with a multitude of injuries and trade departures. Lay the runs.

Bet Athletics -1.5
