Our MLB handicapper has gone a solid 7-3 over the past four days & shares his two top totals on Tuesday’s card in this betting preview article. Find out what totals he’s wagering on inside.
Mariners (Walker) vs. Tigers (Greene) 7:05 PM ET
Tijuan Walker has been awful is his last two starts with a 9.00 ERA, and both of those games went over the total. Walker has posted a lofty 5.47 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in ten road starts this season. His only career start versus Detroit came this year, and he had an extremely difficult time in that outing, allowing 5 earned runs in 6.0 innings, and surrendering 3 home runs at usually pitcher friendly Safeco Field.
Shane Green has been in brutal form over his past five starts, posting a gargantuan 12.57 ERA and 2.22 WHIP in those outings. He also allowed a whopping 8 home runs in only 19 1/3 innings pitched during that time. The Tigers are an eye popping 23-4 over the total in their previous twenty-seven games. According to the MLB betting odds at BetOnline, Detroit is currently a +115 money line underdog. They’ve gone 27-11 over the total this season as a money line underdog of +100 or more, and that includes 9-1 at Comerica Park in Detroit.
Even the Mariners quiet bats should wake up against Shane Greene today. The Tigers unbelievable string of games going over the total has a lot more to do than just their impressive batting order. Detroit’s pitching has left a lot to be desired during that four week stretch. I like this to be a high scoring game for one of my MLB picks on Tuesday. I’ll be using 5Dimes to make this wager since they currently possess the best number and price.
MLB Pick: Play on the Mariners and Tigers Over 9.0 (-120) at 5Dimes.
Blue Jays (Buehrle) vs. A’s (Gravemen) 10:05 PM ET
The savvy veteran southpaw Mark Buehrle has been outstanding over his last eight starts. During that time he’s posted a superb 1.55 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and compiled better than a 5:1 strikeout to walk ratio. The Blue Jays have gone 7-2-1 under the total in their previous ten games.
Kendall Gravemen has recently become a very reliable starter for Oakland. In his last seven starts the A’s right-hander posted a terrific 1.85 ERA. Oakland is 11-4 under the total in their last fifteen games.
This will be the first meeting of the season between these American League clubs. Since 2013, they’ve gone 10-3-1 under the total in their fourteen encounters, and that includes 6-1 under at Oakland. Toronto possesses a poor .228 team batting average during their previous seven games, and Oakland is at an even worse .216 in its last seven. I like this game to play on the low side of the total for one of my MLB picks today. There are several books that have the same number and favorable price.
MLB Pick: Play on Toronto and Oakland Under 7.5 (-125) at Pinnacle.
