Brewers get off on right foot in key series vs. Cardinals, and other best bets on Tuesday

Hello Gamblers, Chris Wenger back in the saddle. Have you recovered from some of the horrible bad beats the NFL slate had to offer over the weekend?

Personally, if the Chiefs weren’t struggling to score against the Colts, I’d be waiting for a great payday. We figured we could easily get touchdown advantage when we went to zero.

Forget football for a few days and let’s get to Tuesday’s baseball picks.

🔥 Hot Ticket

Brewers Cardinals, 7:40 p.m. | Television: MLB.TV

Latest odds:

Milwaukee Brewers +100

  • main trends: The Brewers are 16-6 in their last 22 home games against right-handed starters.
  • Pick: Brewers (-105)

The Brewers are at the forefront of the National League Wild Card. With the Cardinals likely to be his NL Central Division Champion, I’m looking to take the lead here with the Brewers.

Brewers starter Adrian Hauser has had the toughest two-game stretch possible. He recently faced the Yankees and Mets and struggled with both. But the right-hander has been showing good pitching in recent weeks. In his last four starts, Hauser has given up six earned runs, four against the Yankees, despite not having a high strikeout record in below-average Yankees games. In all, he allowed only two earned runs on six hits.

It also doesn’t matter that the Brewers have won six of their last eight games against NL Central opponents. The Cardinals, meanwhile, have lost five of their past six season openers. I’m pretty sure this puts the Brewers on the winning line.

💰 Other MLB Picks

Reds at Pirates, 6:35 PM | Television: MLB.TV

Latest odds:

7 years old and over

Pick: 7.0 or more runs (+105): I know what you’re trying to say Betting on the Reds/Pirates game in September sounds silly. I have no intention of going against you. However, there is nothing wrong with cashing out winning bet slips.

If you have the two worst teams in the majors, you are more likely to score a lot. After all, the Reds’ ERA is his third-lowest in the majors (4.84) ​​and the Pirates his fifth-worst (4.70). Additionally, he’s 5-2 overs in his last seven games for the Pirates when the total is set between his 7.0-8.5. The Pirates have also scored at least five runs in three of his last four games, so the bat has been booming lately.

Sure, young arms Hunter Green and Mitch Keller have been shining throughout the 2022 season, but those are two pitchers with better ERA. I think his eight runs for these two teams is an easy number to reach.

main trends: Overs are 5-0 in the Pirates’ last five games against a team with a winning percentage of less than .400.

Athletics at Angels, 9:38 PM | TV: MLB.TV
Pick: Patrick Sandoval Under 5.5 strikeouts (+110)
: Clearly, Tuesday’s matchup between the Athletics and the Angels isn’t one that many fans are paying attention to, given that both have been out of playoff racing for quite some time. Still, there’s nothing wrong with going back to the well when it comes to this one under his strikeout prop.

Despite a 6-9 record, Patrick Sandoval put together a strong season for the Angels. He also has an impressive 3.01 ERA and his 141 strikeouts. Still, he’s not the type of starter to mow down every hitter who steps into the batter’s box.In six of his last 10 starts, Sandoval has struck out five or fewer times. He has struck out at least six times in 11 of his 25 starts all season. doing.

main trends: Sandoval has struck out five or fewer times in six of his last 10 starts.
