Last Wednesday’s MLB Same Game Parlays ended up 0-3 at PointsBet Sportsbook but came single positions away from cashing all three SGPs! Had you bet everything individually, you made money! Baltimore did everything but win the game against Cleveland with it going over its team total and Bieber going under his pitching outs prop. Blake Snell churned out another quality start, but the Padres lost in the bottom of the ninth after Josh Hader committed just his second blown save of the MLB betting season. Closing it out were the Mariners who beat the Yankees 1-0 in extras with George Kirby also going over his pitching outs prop, but Seattle failed to exceed its team total. Here’s to reeling in some green on Wednesday’s slate – SLAM YOUR MAN!!

Kansas City Royals vs. Miami Marlins
The Marlins could and should be in a position to bust out the broom for a second straight series in Wednesday’s finale with the Royals. Kansas City has only come out victorious in nine of its 27 played road games, and has been swept in each of its last two three-game road series by the White Sox and Brewers. Since dropping three of four at Colorado, the Marlins are 7-2 in their last nine games with sweeps earned against the Angels in Los Angeles and the A’s back home this past weekend. It’ll get the benefit of squaring off against Jordan Lyles and his bloated 6.89 ERA in the series finale with the right-hander failing to earn a dub in any if his 12 made starts. He’s been brutal on the road (9.89 ERA) as well as in day games (9.18 ERA) which should have Jesus Sanchez and co. chomping at the bit to step into the box against him.
Edward Cabrera has been one of many success stories within Miami’s starting rotation this baseball betting season with the right-hander coming off his best outing after tossing six shutout innings at the A’s with a season-high 10 strikeouts. KC’s averaging just 3.6 runs per game against RHP (No. 28) and owns a 7.3 percent walk rate for the year (No. 29). Issuing free passes has been Cabrera’s Achilles heel (5.6/9), but that shouldn’t be a problem area in this one. The Fish take this one wire-to-wire!

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Cincinnati Reds
Leave it to the Reds to take a steaming hot deuce in front of the hometown faithful after logging successive series wins on the road against the Cubs and Red Sox. For a second there, it looked like David Bell’s squad might be a player in the NL Central. And then the Milwaukee Brewers came to town… It won’t get any easier this week either with the Dodgers set to make their lone GAB appearance with Dave Roberts’ squad salty after dropping a series at home to the Yankees. With both offenses potentially held in check in the opener, I fully expect each to flex their offensive muscles in the meat of the series with Noah Syndergaard and his 6.54 ERA set to square off against Brandon Williamson whose stuff hasn’t been impressive when putting his player page at Pitcher List under the microscope.
While the latter has limited hits (7.3/9) and averaged 7.7 K/9, his outings have come against the weak-hitting Brewers, Cubs, Cardinals, and Rockies. Mookie Betts and co. will represent a much stiffer test! Thor has been raked for 15 hits (4 HR) and 11 ER in his last two starts, and Cincy will keep the pressure on the base paths with it one of the best in the game at swiping bases (No. 3) and the righty allergic to preventing successful thefts. Provided the weather cooperates, this could be the highest scoring game of the night!

New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves
Truist Park will be electric for the second game of three between their hometown Braves and the hated Mets. Making round two all the more enticing is the juicy pitching matchup that pits New York’s Max Scherzer up against Atlanta’s Charlie Morton. It took some time for Mad Max to find his bearings, but the right-hander has been locked in over his last four starts in holding the Nationals, Guardians, Rockies, and Phillies to a grand total of 16 hits and 3 ER with a 28:4 K/BB ratio over 25 innings of work.
Though Morton took the “L” in his most recent start at Arizona, the veteran still looked locked in allowing six hits and 3 ER against a solid Diamondbacks offense. He tallied 9 K for the second straight start and has accumulated 33 outs via the strikeout in his last four trips to the starting bump. Each of his last three starts resulted in low scorers per the closing total odds, and I’m expecting more of the same in this epic pitching showdown. Scherzer was lights out versus the Braves stout offense a season ago (3-1 with a 3.12 ERA and .202 BAA), and I expect him to be way up for his first showdown with Ronald Acuna Jr. and co. The under cashed in two of three when these rivals collided back in early May, and I fully expect the arms to dominate once again on Hump Day night.
