June 17th, 2019 Betting Tips: Copa America, MLB

The NBA season is over and we saw a new champion crowned in the Toronto Raptors. You would think that would be the end of NBA news for awhile, but this league never stops and the big story of the weekend was Anthony Davis being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for a large package of players that includes Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and the #4 overall pick in this year’s draft. Just a monster take for the Pelicans and one that should set them up nicely for the future with Zion Williamson expected to be drafted first overall.

Because this is the Lakers, the trade itself is not without drama. The Lakers could have $32.5 million in cap space if the trade is held off til July 30th to complete. That’s money they could use to add someone like Kyrie Irving or Kemba Walker, but if they plan to do the trade on July 6th that number drops to $23.7 million. As of now, it is scheduled for the 6th and if they want to move it – they might need to add even more to this trade. Crazy.

We still have a little while until free agency and the NBA draft so today we shift our focus to the Copa America tournament and MLB. Let’s get into the tips.

MLB Betting Tips:

Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals: The Nationals send Patrick Corbin to the mound today and this year’s offseason acquisition has been fantastic at home. He has a 2.32 ERA/2.46 FIP in home starts this year and draws a nice match-up against the Phillies who have been below average of late.

Philly will send Jake Arrieta who has been really bad to awful over his past five starts with a 4.85 ERA/5.58 FIP. This feels like a great value on the Nationals here.

Bet Nationals -135

Cleveland Indians at Texas Rangers: The Indians’ Mike Clevinger is returning from injury to make his third start of the year. He’s yet to give up a run, but today against this powerful Rangers offense on the road seems like a good place for that streak to end. I like Clevinger, but I like the Rangers homer prowess at home better.

The Rangers send Lance Lynn who has been fantastic of late with a 3.45 ERA/1.46 FIP over his past five starts with some huge strikeout numbers. He’s really a hot hand right now and I want to continue to ride that in today’s game at a nice underdog price. The Indians offense has been weak all season and I expect them to have an especially tough time today.

Bet Rangers +110

Copa America Betting Tips:

Japan vs. Chile: Japan is a special guest in this year’s Copa America and they are only using the opportunity to get some young players experience. These players are young and hungry, playing a Chile team that some people think are over the hill. Although they did win this thing in 2016. Their experience should carry them today though. This Chile team has been there and done that, and this is a great match-up for them against some hungry competitors. I think they grab the win here and get themselves started on a nice foot in this tournament.

Bet Chile -1.0
