Top Moneyline Pick

Minnesota Twins @ Detroit Tigers: Minnesota ML (-140)

In a matchup of the two bottom-dwellers of the AL Central, TomBox is projecting a 60% chance of victory for the Minnesota Twins, who battle the 9-24 Detroit Tigers this afternoon. The key to Minnesota’s chances tonight will be starter José Berríos, who’s forecasted with 53% certainty to have a Quality Start. If Berríos comes through with the QS, then the Twins’ winning percentage balloons to 73%. Bet on Berríos tonight and take the Twins straight up

Top Spread Pick

Oakland Athletics vs. Tampa Bay Rays: Oakland +1.5 (-145)

The TomBox algorithm is projecting a tight matchup tonight, with a predicted final score of 4.2-4.2, and both teams with winning percentages between 45% and 55%. Both starters should fare well tonight as Frankie Montas from Oakland has a 53% Quality Start chance, and Tyler Glasnow from Tampa has a 50% chance of a quality start on his end. Austin Meadows from Tampa will be driving the offense, with a 39% chance of a 3+ hits, walks, and RBI game, so hammer any player props you see with him and for Oakland to easily cover the 1.5 runs here tonight

William Hill RF500 - 728x90

Top Over/Under Pick

Seattle Mariners @ Texas Rangers: Under 9 (+120)

Expect a tight, low-scoring matchup in tonight’s battle between Seattle and Texas, as Rangers starter Kohei Arihara is projected with 52% certainty to have a quality start, which leads to a Texas win in 78% of simulations. The runs that will come should be courtesy of the big man Joey Gallo, who averages 2.35 hits + walks + RBI and could easily go off for a big game. The TomBox algorithm is projecting this one as 7 total runs, so take the under here.
