September 4th, 2021 MLB & College Football Betting Tips

Two college football tips for September 4th, 2021.

We also have three MLB System tips for September 4th, 2021.

Georgia vs. Clemson Betting Tips:

This is by far the biggest match-up of the day as the #3 Clemson takes on #5 Georgia. It’s rare to see a game with playoff implications this early in the season so this should be a good one.

The real question of this one is: how does Clemson do in life after Trevor Lawrence? D.J. Uiagalelei looks poised to take the reigns and this team has some great young wideouts who could shine today.

Georgia is all about the run game, but the offensive line might not be able to handle what Clemson is going to throw at them. They are agressive, quick, and dangerous in the front seven and I think they can make a long day for the running game as well as QB JT Daniels.

LSU at UCLA Betting Tips:

The Bears are coming off a big win against Hawaii, but there is a huge difference between Hawaii and an SEC powerhouse.

I think the LSU defense will do well stopping the run that went wild against Hawaii and the secondary could cause problems for Dorian Thompson-Robinson.

There is some doubts about sophomore QB Max Johnson making his first start, but I don’t think he would be making the start unless they thought he could handle it. Sometimes the media overhypes things like this.

It is cheap enough to go with the moneyline here instead of laying the points so that’s what we will do.

Pick: LSU Moneyline

MLB Betting Tips:

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

Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Reynaldo Lopez 65 60 128 66 91 4 77 5
KCR   85 93 83 87 26 87 19
Daniel Lynch 96 58 79 119 105 21 83 8
CHW   100 100 114 110 2 121 4

Lopez has only made a few starts this year, but he’s looing good and I trust the bullpen behind him quite a bit. They have a 77 wRC+ over the past two weeks. They are facing the Royals who have a 85 wRC+ against righties on the season.

The White Sox are facing a lefty here and they have a 112 wRC+ against them on the season. Easy pick for me.

Pick: Bet White Sox -0.5 First 5 Innings

Atlanta Braves at Colorado Rockies Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Ian Anderson 87 66 98 108 96 11 83 8
COL   97 99 89 81 29 71 29
German Marquez 85 86 104 95 105 21 85 10
ATL   111 106 102 99 13 82 24

German Marquez is having a great season, but I don’t trust his offense (76 wRC+ against righties) or his bullpen (105 FIP-) on the season. This is an incredibly tough match-up against the Braves. The ball flies in this park and they have a 111 ISO+ on the season.

Ian Anderson is a solid lefty and draws a nice match-up here.

Pick: Bet Braves Moneyline

Houston Astros at San Diego Padres Betting Tips:

Pitcher FIP- HR/9+ K%+ BB%+ Bullpen FIP-
Team wRC+
Rank BP FIP- L14
wRC+ L14
Rank
Framber Valdez 90 54 96 114 101 15 104 19
SDP   95 97 108 98 15 60 30
Joe Musgrove 81 80 120 73 93 7 119 26
HOU   101 85 106 117 1 106 9

The margins on pretty thin on this one, but I’m looking at this Astros offense and I’m all over it.

Musgrove is very good, but the Astros have a huge 117 wRC+ against righties. The bullpen behind him is really struggling of late with a 119 FIP- over the last two weeks.

Framber Valdez faces the Padres who have a 94 wRC+ against lefties on the year. The thing that really swung this one for me is the Padres offense over the past two weeks. They have just a 60 wRC+. Things are not going well for them right now.

Pick: Bet Astros Moneyline
