The MLB season continues to chug along and we’ve been on fire in 2020. Moneylines have been a big hit as we continue to look for value with the pitching matchups. We have your daily upset alert on the MLB moneylines here. Wednesday’s slate has 12 games scheduled and we have two excellent underdog bets to score on.
Oakland Athletics vs. Colorado Rockies
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 – 03:10 PM EDT at Coors Field
- Oakland: Mike Friers (5-2 5.06 ERA)
- Colorado: German Marquez (2-5 4.35 ERA)
This is the line that stuck out the most for Wednesday's slate of games. The Oakland Athletics are eight games up on the Colorado Rockies and are starting a similar-caliber pitcher. Yet the Rockies are favored despite dropping five of six entering this game.
The Rockies' offense can certainly pound Mike Friers when he's struggling with control. His strikeout numbers are poor and his issues leaving hanging breaking balls lead to easy hits. But Friers has been better since mid-August, and has found middling footing. That's all the A's have needed to rack up wins.
The A's will also benefit from playing in the comfortable confines of Coors Field. The A's offense has just as much power as the Rockies yet aren't projected to score the same or better. This is a miss by oddsmakers.
The Rockies have hit the under in three straight
Boston Red Sox vs. Miami Marlins
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 - 06:40 PM EDT at Marlins Park
- Boston: Chris Mazza (1-1 5.85 ERA)
- Miami: Trevor Rogers (1-1 6.50 ERA)
We're looking at two pitchers who have had limited
The Sox have been almost average on the road with a 10-14 record, while the Marlins have been worse at home than on the road. There's almost no home-field advantage, so this comes down to roster and pitching. And while Mazza has similar numbers to Rogers, he's coming off two improving outings in a row after a rough start.
Rogers has been increasingly worse as teams get tape on him. He was awful last week against Philadelphia, allowing eight earned and nine runs total on 71 pitches in three
