5/23 Baseball Gambling Picks of the Day

Written by Nick30muench

St. Louis / Chicago Cubs O8.5 Runs -108

This game features a pitching matchup of Adam Wainwright and Zach Davies. It will be extremely warm in St. Louis today and these are two pitchers who don’t have electric stuff. Wainwright and Davies rely on getting outs on balls in play instead of strikeouts, giving us a higher probability that more runs will be scored.

Washington Nationals O5.5 Total Runs +110

The Nationals are facing Matt Harvey and the Baltimore Orioles today. Not only have the Orioles given up more than 5.5 runs in their last 6 of 8, but Harvey have given up over 5.5 in his last two starts as well. I expect the trend to continue, as Harvey isn’t the same Dark Knight he used to be.

Boston Red Sox / Philadelphia Phillies U7.5 Total Runs -112

All you need to know is that the pitching matchup is Eduardo Rodriguez vs Zack Wheeler. These are two dominant arms I expect to go deep in this game. I was also looking at the first 5 innings total runs line, but the odds on that were awful.

Toronto Blue Jays -1.5 vs Tampa Bay Rays +116

When Ryu is pitching, Toronto has won its last three by 3 or more runs. With how talented the young Jays are, I expect that they put up at least 5 on Wacha’s start today.
