July 1st, 2021 NBA Playoffs & MLB Betting Tips

Three MLB system picks and one NBA playoffs betting tip for July 1st, 2021.

The Finals are kind of up in the air right now with the Giannis injury. If you still believe the Bucks can pull it out, that Middleton bet I mentioned last time out is now +1600.

Atlanta Hawks at Milwaukee Bucks Betting Tips:

The Atlanta Hawks played the last game without Trae Young and the team did the thing where they really rally around the injury and show up in a major way. Even with that, the Bucks had a very solid chance to win this game until Giannis went down with an injury.

Now it is the Bucks turn to rally around their injured star and show up big. I think that is exactly what they will do here in front of what should be a very hot crowd in Milwaukee. We’ve seen this thing time and time again throughout the season and teams just have a way of showing up in a big way after an injury. I think the Bucks do just that tonight.

All MLB tips based on the starting pitchers listed. Tips should be considered void if any pitching changes are made unless otherwise noted. Occasionally the “follower” will be listed as we are betting on who will pitch the bulk of the innings.

Question: What are these stats?

Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Corbin Burnes 27 21 161 52 105 19 99 15
PIT   63 97 90 85 29 88 25
Wil Crowe 152 187 80 116 97 11 105 20
MIL   99 114 104 87 24 118 8

This is the most lopsided match-up of the day and the Brewers are absolutely crushing it right now. They had some monster games against the Cubs and now they face a very hittable pitcher.

Corbin Burnes has been out of this world this season with a 2.53 ERA/1.19 FIP. He faces an offense that has just an 83 wRC+ against righties on the season. He should cruise.

Pick: Bet Brewers -1.5

New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Jacob deGrom 23 30 185 44 91 7 114 25
ATL   122 110 104 101 12 105 14
Ian Anderson 79 67 109 95 106 21 113 24
NYM   85 105 94 93 16 68 30

It is so rare that we get an opportunity to bet on Jacob deGrom at a reasonable price. I know the Atlanta offense is about the toughest match-up that he can get, but it doesn’t matter who he is facing right now. He is on another planet. He’s on a record setting pace with a 0.69 ERA/0.99 FIP.

The Mets offense hits righties well enough that I think they can scrounge one run here. I don’t think the Braves will do the same over the first five.

Pick: Bet Mets -0.5 First 5 Innings

San Francisco Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Johnny Cueto 97 93 78 47 104 16 88 8
ARI   76 103 92 87 24 75 28
Merrill Kelly 97 102 88 71 118 29 153 29
SFG   128 110 110 110 4 121 6

These two pitchers are pretty similar, but the Giants offense and bullpen are much, much better than the Diamondbacks. That’s about all there is to this one.

The Giants have a 112 wRC+ against righties on the season. While the Diamondbacks hit righties with just a 82 wRC+. Over the past two weeks, the Diamondbacks have been cold and the Giants have been hot.

That’s it. That’s the tip.
