College Football Betting Tips:

One win by 0.5 points, one loss by 0.5 points, New Mexico got shutout, and Tennessee had the cover by halftime. A good night.

I have a couple of tips for Friday night’s games below. I will be back later tomorrow with a post for Saturday’s slate. That post is now live on Patreon.

Illinois at Indiana Betting Tips:

A short turnaround here for the Illini, but this line is ridiculous. I do think it can be hard to play that fast, at the same time these are also young athletes in the prime of their lives.

A lot of talk about Indiana being able to prepare all this time for Illinois and being able to watch game film of last week. That’s just talk. For one, nothing prepares you for games like games. Second, it’s not like Illinois had to go deep into their playbook last week to beat Wyoming. There is a lot they can do that Indiana will not be ready for.

Indiana lost their last eight games of the season last year and nine straight games in the Big Ten. They have high hopes for this season, but I don’t see it. New coordinators on both ends isn’t usually a good sign.

I liked the way Illinois looked last week as Chase Brown ran all over Wyoming. I don’t see enough out of Indiana to think that will stop here. They had the worst defense in the Big Ten last year and Illinois’ offensive line looked good.

Illinois +1.5

TCU at Colorado Betting Tips:

MLB Betting Tips:

2-1 last night.

I was right about Woodruff struggling, but the Brewers offense just couldn’t return serve. Frustrating team.

Oakland Athletics at Baltimore Orioles Betting Tips:

OAK – JP Sears 2.28 ERA/3.79 FIP
BAL – Dean Kremer 3.24 ERA/3.52 FIP

Seattle Mariners at Cleveland Guardians Betting Tips:

SEA – Luis Castillo 2.85 ERA/3.11 FIP
CLE – Zach Plesac 4.39 ERA/4.50 FIP

Seattle has the best record in baseball over the past sixty games with a 41-19 record. They are sending their best pitcher to the mound and have a very hittable pitcher on the other mound. I like them today.

Castillo has been awesome as a Mariner with a 2.84 ERA/2.84 FIP over his past five starts. The Guardians offense isn’t all that scary and they have just a 64 wRC+ over the past two weeks. The Seattle bullpen has been dealing of late with a 60 FIP- over the past two weeks.

The Mariners get the better match-up with Plesac. He has a 4.70 ERA/5.39 FIP over his past four starts, including three runs allowed in his last start against the Mariners. Three runs might be enough to win here for Seattle.

Mariners Moneyline (-141)

New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays Betting Tips:

NYY – Domingo German 3.19 ERA/4.12 FIP
TBR – Jeffrey Springs 2.76 ERA/3.17 FIP

Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox Betting Tips:

MIN – Sonny Gray 3.04 ERA/3.42 FIP
CHW – Davis Martin 4.62 ERA/4.51 FIP

Sonny Gray has struggled with the walk of late, but you can’t argue with the results. A 2.03 ERA/3.42 FIP over his past five starts and now he gets a below average against righties White Sox offense that hits worse at home.

Davis Martin has only made a couple of starts, but this isn’t some elite prospect. His numbers are about how he is. The Twins offense has been down a bit of late, but they still have a 113 wRC+ against righties this season and this is a good target for them.

The bullpen differential between these two teams really makes the difference. The Twins have a 63 FIP- over the past two weeks while the White Sox have a 115 FIP-.

Twins Moneyline (-128)

Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals Betting Tips:

CHC – Adrian Sampson 3.97 ERA/3.81 FIP
STL – Jordan Montgomery 3.28 ERA/3.56 FIP

Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Betting Tips:

HOU – Lance McCullers Jr. 1.69 ERA/4.19 FIP
LAA – Reid Detmers 3.47 ERA/4.15 FIP

Detmers has been one of the few bright spots for the Angels this year with the no-hitter and a good season overall. He has a 2.91 ERA/3.49 FIP over his past four starts. The Astros are a very tough team to shutdown, but they have been slightly more human on the road. A 106 wRC+ in road games compared to a 120 wRC+ at home.

The Angels are limping to the finish with an 88 wRC+ over the past two weeks. That’s with Ohtani and Trout in the lineup, embarrassing. McCullers has only made a few starts back, but if he can control his walks he should be fine. The bullpen behind him has been lights out of late.

No team has had more games go under this season than the Astros.

Astros/Angels Under 8.5 (-106)
