Today’s baseball card is short but sweet. Let’s hit up a juicy parlay. Three games interest me as worth investing in the Twins vs. Mariners, Orioles vs. Blue Jays, and Brewers vs. Mets.
BMR’s top-rated sportsbooks and betting sites have released their MLB odds for today’s baseball action. For your betting picks, you should play the moneyline in the first game, the run-line for the second, and the total for the third.
Minnesota Twins vs. Seattle Mariners
Wednesday, June 15, 2022 -04:10 PM EDT at T-Mobile Park
Twins' Pitcher for Wednesday
Minnesota starts Sonny Gray today. The Gray-led Twins have been a solid bet lately. They've won the last five games in which he started. He hasn't started in a bit because he is coming off the injured list. But he looked just fine in his extended bullpen session, so he is ready to go.
Today is a great spot for Gray. He gets to pitch during the daytime, which favors him because his career daytime ERA is .44 better than his career nighttime ERA. Moreover, he owns a superb 1.58 ERA in six career starts in Seattle.
Who Starts for Seattle?
Seattle starts southpaw Marco Gonzales. Here are some interesting facts about Gonzales' performances:
- His ERA looks nice, but it masks a 5.64 FIP (like ERA but factors out fielding), which reflects how poorly he's actually been performing.
- Gonzales looks particularly unreliable today because he matches up poorly against Twin batters.
- Primarily, he throws a sinker and changeup. Minnesota, however, ranks sixth in slugging against his favorite pitches from lefties.
MLB Pick: Minnesota Twins ML (-135) with BetOnline
Baltimore Orioles vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Wednesday, June 15, 2022 - 07:07 PM EDT at Rogers Centre
Blue Jays Performance Highlights
While the Blue Jays are chalked rather heavily by MLB oddsmakers, they are in a uniquely strong situation today. They are enjoying a solid run of bouncing back after losses.
Specifically, they are 4-0 in their last four games following a defeat. Pertinently to the Best Bet for this game, all four of those wins were utter blowouts.
In those four games, they beat St. Louis 8-1, dominated Minnesota 12-3, blew out Detroit 10-1, and shut out the Tigers 6-0.
Who Starts for Toronto?
Toronto starts Jose Berrios whose current ERA looks ugly. But remember that ERA is a season-long statistic, and it is a long season.
ERA reflects how a pitcher has performed over the course of an entire season, but it may mislead one as to how a pitcher is performing in a given stretch of the season.
In this current stretch of the season, Berrios is performing well. He has yielded a sub-three FIP in four of his last five starts.
Berrios vs. Oriole Batters
Berrios looks particularly promising tonight because he matches up well against Oriole batters. Primarily, Berrios throws a fastball, curveball, and sinker.
Oriole batters, however, rank 26th in slugging against Berrios' favorite pitches from righties.
Baltimore's Pitcher for Today
Baltimore starts regular catastrophe, Bruce Zimmermann, today. Zimmermann's performances have been worse than ever in his most recent starts:
- Bruce Zimmermann has allowed a combined total of 18 runs in his last three starts and 27 runs in his last five starts.
- Zimmermann ranks sixth in slugging against his favorite pitches from lefties.
Orioles vs. Blue Jays Betting Pick
Given his catastrophic tendencies and Toronto's strong situation, the Blue Jays are my favorite team total over bet today -- keep that in mind when deciding which straight wagers to place on today's game.
MLB Pick: Toronto Blue Jays RL -1.5 (-145) with BetOnline
Milwaukee Brewers vs. New York Mets
Wednesday, June 15, 2022 - 07:10 PM EDT at Citi Field
Corbin Burnes to Start for Milwaukee
- Burnes has yielded a sub-2.50 FIP in three of his last four starts.
- Given the consistency with which he thrives, he is a strong under pitcher. This is particularly true on the road as the under is 4-1-1 in his road starts.
- Plus, the Mets match up poorly against him, ranking 22nd in slugging against his favorite pitches from lefties.
Who Starts for the Mets?
The Mets start David Peterson who is most known for the variety of his pitch selection. He promises to thrive tonight because the Brewers routinely struggle against lefties.
In June, they managed one run against San Diego's Sean Manaea in six innings, were shut out by Padre MacKenzie Gore, mustered two runs against Philadelphia's Ranger Suarez in seven innings, and scored four runs against Washington's Patrick Corbin with all four of those runs coming in the seventh inning when Corbin was stretched beyond his limit.
MLB Pick: Under 7.5 (-125) with BetOnline
