MLB Tips – 16th April

MLB betting odds multi

On Monday, the day should start with another win for the Red Sox as Chris Sale heads to the mound. The Cardinals are the safe bet against the woeful Reds. The Mets should easily beat the Brewers at home. The Phillies and Rays should be high scoring. The Angels are on fire at the moment and the Wolf is back on them against Royals. The D-Backs and Dodgers are both scoring alot of runs, so go the over total. The Mariners and Athletics should fall under the runs with two strong pitchers on the hill.

Texas Rangers at Houston Astros (10:08am)

Tip: Over 8.5 runs ($2.05)

The baseball action for the day concludes in Houston as the Astros host the Rangers in game 3. The Astros took game one 3-2 and the Rangers won 6-5 in game 2. In game 3, Justin Verlander is back on the mound and that has the Wolf excited. The Astros haven’t lost a regular season game when he’s on the mound so they should be confident in this one. He’s coming off a 4 hit, 7 inning outing against the Twins. He was roughed up at home by the Orioles, giving up 2 home runs. However, he dominated the Rangers on Opening Day with a 4 hit, 6 inning performance. After Gerrit Cole struck out 14 batters on Saturday, the Rangers lineup will likely struggle. Verlander has recorded 9 strikeouts in his last 2 starts. For the Rangers, Bartolo Colon gets the ball as a starter. He has come out of the pen in his last 2 starts. He did start against the Athletics in early April and it was a 6 inning, 7 hit outing. But his last outing in Houston was one to forget. In 5.2 innings, he earned 8 runs and the loss. In his last 5 starts against them, his ERA is 5.34. So the value in the game is the over total runs after Verlander struggled in his last home start and Colon is prone to giving up runs. The two sides also totalled 11 runs in Sunday’s game so the over total is good value over $2.
