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

Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Alec Mills 103 94 74 71 106 26 125 27
PIT   75 98 95 82 29 79 21
Mitch Keller 102 79 86 117 106 26 134 29
CHC   101 121 89 91 24 115 7

These two starters are almost even with very similar stats across the board. Their bullpens are about the same as well with a 106 FIP- on the season.

However, I think the Cubs offense looks to be much better. They have a higher wRC+ on the season, both overall and against right handed pitching, and they are hot of late with a 115 wRC+ over the past two weeks. The Pirates offense has very lightly power while the Cubs are a very good homerun hitting team.

Don’t feel great about this because these teams stink and have nothing to play for, but it looks like a great value.

Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Zack Wheeler 60 57 125 62 108 28 123 26
ATL   111 106 100 98 12 100 18
Charlie Morton 78 67 121 88 97 10 86 8
PHI   99 102 102 95 16 109 11

The Phillies are still in this thing at 2.5 games behind the Braves. This series will be huge for them.

I don’t trust their bullpen at all, but I do think that Zack Wheeler will cotninue his fantastic season with a great start here. He has a 2.79 ERA/2.62 FIP and looks like a great F5 bet.

Charlie Morton is having a nice season as well with a 3.53 ERA/3.28 FIP. He has been a bit worse in his home starts this season and he faces a Phillies offense that is hot of late with a 109 wRC+ over the past two weeks.

Pick: Bet Phillies First 5 Innings Moneyline

USA: Best Odds: -110 at SportsBetting.ag – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
Everyone Else: Best Odds: 1.9 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus

Arizona Diamondbacks at San Francisco Giants Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Luke Weaver 108 131 94 71 117 30 128 28
SFG   114 107 106 108 4 121 4
Logan Webb 69 49 112 70 93 7 101 21
ARI   85 107 96 84 27 74 27

The Giants have been the best team in the National League this season, but they need to keep their foot on the gas the rest of the way as the Dodgers are right on their tail for the division crown.

Logan Webb has been fantastic with a 3.04 ERA/2.81 FIP. He draws a great match-up as the Diamondbacks have just a 79 wRC+ against righties on the season and they don’t have much to play for here.

Luke Weaver is very hittable and has been awful on the road this year. The bullpen behind him isn’t much better with a 117 FIP- on the season. The Giants offense is as good as they come and should put up the runs to cover here.

Pick: Bet Giants -1.5

USA: Best Odds: -133 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
Everyone Else: Best Odds: 1.75 at SportsBetting.ag – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus

Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Chris Bassitt 79 68 110 68 103 19 107 23
SEA   93 110 106 93 19 103 16
Tyler Anderson 98 109 86 60 89 4 108 24
OAK   100 96 106 103 8 102 17

The Mariners keep winning and are now just 1.5 games back of the Wild Card. It’s great to see, but it honestly doesn’t make any sense. They have a -52 run differential on the season and what they are doing just doesn’t make a ton of sense.

I think things might turn for them tonight with a tough match-up against the Athletics. Chris Bassitt is having a great season with a 3.16 ERA/3.29 FIP. The Mariners have just a 94 wRC+ against lefties on the year.

Tyler Anderson is about an average pitcher. He’s facing an Athletics offense that has a 104 wRC+ against lefties on the year.

Pick: Bet Athletics Moneyline

USA: Best Odds: -125 at SportsBetting.ag – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
Everyone Else: Best Odds: 1.82 at BetOnline – 50% to $1000 Welcome Bonus
