Answer: Check out our MLB System Stats Guide to find out.

New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Jerad Eickhoff 232 366 43 76 102 17 143 29
CIN   107 102 95 101 10 96 21
Vladimir Gutierrez 125 123 69 116 112 27 99 13
NYM   86 107 93 93 17 87 24

The total on this one is really high so not much is expected from either starter.

The Reds are a far better homerun hitting team and have a 106 wRC+ against righties on the season. The Mets have just an 91 wRC+ agaisnt righties. The Mets have the better overall bullpen, but over the past 30 days they have been a disaster.

We’re looking at a potential slugfest and if that’s the case, the Reds are the clear pick.

Texas Rangers at Detroit Tigers Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Kyle Gibson 83 55 91 87 100 13 107 21
DET   93 115 102 90 20 102 16
Casey Mize 109 111 84 80 111 26 106 19
TEX   101 103 92 90 20 105 12

A solid start to the season for Kyle Gibson who has a 2.29 ERA/3.47 FIP. He has a good groundball rate and is just solid all around. He does well keeping his homeruns down.

Casey Mize has a 3.59 ERA/4.73 FIP on the season and homeruns have been an issue. The Rangers offense is not great, but they have some serious power and I think they can do enough of that here to get the win. Neither bullpen is very good, but the Rangers is much better.

Pick: Bet Rangers Moneyline

Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Alec Mills 102 80 80 83 99 12 134 27
STL   89 96 85 88 25 80 28
Jake Woodford 163 153 75 132 106 23 120 24
CHC   108 116 93 92 18 77 30

Only 25.1 MLB innings pitched this season for Woodford, but he doesn’t look to be very good. A somewhat low strikeout rate, high walks, and a high HR/9 rate thus far which is right in line with what the projections have for him. He’s just not that good and the Cubs can hit him today. The Cubs offense has issues, but they can hit the homerun and Woodford will give that up today.

I’m no big Alec Mills fan, but he’s an average pitcher going against a below average offense. You don’t need to be the best in the game to do well against the Cards.

Pick: Bet Cubs Moneyline

Canada: Best Odds: 1.87 at Sports Interaction – $125 Bonus

San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Kevin Gausman 64 54 128 76 100 13 80 3
LAD   115 100 115 111 3 114 8
Tony Gonsolin 86 61 121 153 95 8 87 5
SFG   126 108 109 110 4 125 1

Kevin Gausman is the best starter going today by far. He has a 1.73 ERA/2.57 FIP with huge strikeout numbers and a great HR/9 rate. The Dodgers are a dangerous offense, but if anyone can shut them down it is a pitcher like Gausman.

These are two of the best offenses in baseball, but the starting pitcher difference is what makes the Giants look like the pick. Gonsolin has a 2.13 ERA/3.53 FIP with a very high walk rate. The Giants offense is one of the most patient in the game so they can really make him pay there.

Pick: Bet Giants First 5 Innings Moneyline
