MLB Best Bets for Tuesday, June 29th

Rough day yesterday, but one of the best parts about baseball is that there are so many games, and we are back at it again today. Here are the three best bets we can find for the MLB. 

Marlins vs. Phillies

The Marlins, a playoff team in last year’s shortened season, are struggling to find traction this year. However, one bright spot has been Trevor Rogers, who is 7-4 with a 2.08 ERA. He’s already faced Philly twice this year and has held them to a .186 average against him this year. My thought on this game is to take Rogers over 6.5 strikeouts at +102. The Phillies average 9.5 strikeouts per game as a team, and Rogers had games of five and eight strikeouts against them already. Take him to get to seven strikeouts. 

Cubs vs. Brewers

Show this man some respect, he just threw part of a no-hitter! Just kidding, no-hitters really aren’t that impressive anymore considering there is one seemingly every week. But, nonetheless, Zach Davies and three Cub relievers held the Dodgers hitless for a full game – and with that lineup, that is an accomplishment. The Brewers, his opponent tonight, have not had much success against him in the past, hitting .060 (3-44). If he can keep the walks down and the ball in the yard, the Cubs should have a good chance of winning the game. The Brewers get one of their bright spot starters, Brandon Woodruff, who has a 1.89 ERA and has held the Cubs to a .113 average against him. He’s faced them three times this season and given up six hits in 19 innings. I’m taking a shot on the Cubs though, as I think there is too much value to pass up, and after the embarrassing loss yesterday, they really need to turn this around or they will quickly become a seller at the trade deadline. Play the Cubs at +200. 

Pirates vs. Rockies

The Pirates and Rockies will go at it in Coors Field tonight, and for the Rockies, this is a good chance to win another one. They face Chase De Jong, who is willing to give up the long ball, having surrendered five in five starts. Additionally, fly ball pitchers can really struggle in Coors. De Jong has had 52 flyballs in his five starts. On the other hand, German Marquez actually has been better at Coors, especially at night. I’m taking the Rockies on the run line at -1.5 for +102.
