Maximize Your Profit With These Early MLB Betting Lines

Sports handicapper Ian Cameron provides a look at MLB Overnight Betting Lines for the games taking place on Wednesday, June 22.

Seattle Mariners vs. Detroit Tigers
Michael Fulmer has looked the part of a top of the rotation starter for the Detroit Tigers since joining them. Detroit is a strong 8-2 in his 10 starts and he’s been even more dominant at Comerica Park where he has a 0.69 ERA in 2 home starts allowing a single run in 13 innings pitched and Detroit is 2-0 in Fulmer’s previous home starts.

He will be opposed by Hisashi Iwakuma who has been solid in his own right this season but has struggled with Detroit in the past allowing 12 runs in 18 innings pitched against them over his last three starts and Iwakuma has allowed at least 3 runs in 9 of his last 10 starts with the long ball being a particularly bad problem for him in recent outings for MLB odds as Iwakuma has served up 4 home runs in his last two starts which could spell trouble against the Tigers who have plenty of power in their lineup. Detroit is at a perfectly reasonable price here to support them with their most promising young arm on the mound.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Minnesota Twins
The most undervalued streak in MLB right is the incredible Over the total streak of the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota has seen the Over cash in MLB pick at a 13-0-1 clip in their last 14 games. That is a trend worth riding here as Phillies struggling lefty Adam Morgan faces erratic Kyle Gibson in this pitching matchup. Morgan has been hit hard with a 6.49 ERA this season including a 5.40 ERA on the road and he was hammered for 7 runs on 10 hits in 4.1 innings in his last start against Arizona and the Over is a perfect 4-0 in Morgan’s last four starts.

Kyle Gibson was slightly better in his last outing against the NY Yankees but has still allowed 15 runs in his last 15 innings of work over his last three starts. Neither starter has a track record of pitching deep into games which means we should see plenty of a pair of mediocre bullpens who both have ERA’s approaching 5 on the season. The Twins Over trend is worth riding until proven otherwise.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros
Matt Shoemaker was a tough luck loser in his last start in Oakland pitching well again but did not receive enough run support in a 3-2 loss but that doesn’t diminish how dominant Shoemaker has been since his recent mechanical adjustments. Shoemaker has incorporated more splitters and off speed pitchers into his repertoire and thrown less fastballs which is the main theme of the mechanical adjustments he has made and it has paid dividends for him as Shoemaker has allowed just 10 runs in his last 44.1 innings of work over a span of 6 starts and has a ridiculous ratio of 2 walks and 55 strikeouts during that span.

His swinging strike rate has jumped up from 9.1% to 14.3% and that has left him as an undervalued pitcher right now thanks to mediocre season long stats that aren’t an accurate reflection of the new and improved Matt Shoemaker that we have seen over the last month or so. Lance McCullers has been strong for Houston of late too allowing 14 runs over his last 6 starts. McCullers has pitched well against the Angels in the past but in spite of that, the Astros are just 1-3 in his 4 outings against them. This sets up to be a game dominated by two pitchers in very strong form. I’ll bet this game Under the total and also take a shot with the very generous plus price on the LA Angels.
