Seanbo’s MLBbro Bets! Keep That Whistle Wet!

Yuck. One word to describe our last two weeks of picks. 2 total wins and 4 total losses in the last two #BrosBettingBaseball (@bbruh916 / @abookay3) just doesn’t sit right, so I’ve been digging in the stats and looking for hidden gems to get our MLB Bros back in the green this last Friday of June. Things took a turn, but we’ll get you straight! Short intro because I’m going to do less talkin’ and more walkin’ as I throw you my 3 picks of teams also looking to get back off the shh-nnnniiide:

1. The first stop in our redemption campaign takes us to South Beach at 3:40pm Pacific, where the Miami Marlins (-115) welcome the suddenly struggling New York Mets (-105) who are actually a dog against the Florida Fish who are trying to climb out of 4th place in the NL East. The Mets were riding brooms in Houston, as they were swept in their 2-game series. They bring out one of our MLB Bros you need to know, Taijuan Walker (2.88 ERA, RHP), who has been lights out for the team from Queens.

The Marlins have their own ace on the bump, as Sandy Alcantara (1.72 ERA, RHP) has been one of the few bright spots on this squad outside of the shining star Jazz Chisholm (14 HRs, 45 RBIs) when he’s not steeped in drama. I’m keeping the faith in Tai and the Mets top ranked offense (1st in batting average, runs, hits, and on base %) to get past the Marlins, and we’re going with the Mets Moneyline as the Bros Best Bet.

2. Let’s ride the wave…in The Land? You heard that right! The Cleveland Guardians (-105) have pulled themselves out of the gutter and are currently sitting alone in 1st in the AL Central. If you haven’t been watching, they’ve pulled off some stunning comebacks (sorry Twins) in the month of June and their bats have been swinging harder than a 5.0 Mustang at an Oakland sideshow!

Leading the way for the Guardians is Jose Ramirez, who is boasting a .302 ERA, knocked in 62(!) RBIs, and sent 16 HRs to the rafters. Will their resurgence be enough to stop the also hot Boston Red Sox (-115) and their righty Nick Pivetta (3.31 ERA, 7 wins – 5 losses)? We’re banking on Cleveland’s Cal Quantrill (3.77 ERA, 4 wins – 4 losses) to keep the big bats in Boston quiet enough to pull off another win. Take the Guardians Moneyline, as we keep walking the underdogs all over the block on Friday.

 

3. Let’s stay in middle America and hit up the Southside of the Chi, as the Chicago White Sox (-155) host the Baltimore Orioles (+135). I’m not counting on any comebacks from either starting pitcher, as the Oriole’s righty Kyle Bradish (7.38 ERA, 1 win – 4 losses) and White Sox’s righty Michael Kopech (2.38 ERA, 2 wins – 3 losses) are far from any Cy Young nods this year.

Both pitchers are averaging about 1 strikeout per inning, while both offenses have enjoyed some recent outbursts with a combined 9.2 Runs averaged in their last 5 games. Pound the OVER 8.5 total Runs between the Orioles and White Sox, and let’s hit a triple on this last Friday of June!

As we (@bbruh916 / @abookay3) drag our sorry butts into the MLBBro.com offices, we’re depressed at last week’s 1 win 2 loss record…shame, shame, shame. I can’t look into Hall of Famer Rob Parker’s eyes. I shudder wondering what the head honcho JR Gamble is thinking about our Ls to the Reds and Mariners.

But hey, if we can take a whoopin’ from our pops for watching the dirty cable channels on his blackbox back in the 90s, we can bounce back from last week! We’re going to do better, Dad America! Here are the revenge picks for today, the first Friday of June…

1. Game 1 takes place at 1:05 PM Eastern in the Bronx, as the New York Yankees (no line posted) take on the Detroit Tigers. Even though the Tigers were showing signs of life against the sneaky good Twins, the Bronx Bombers and righty Gerrit Cole (3.12 ERA) haven’t let off the gas all season. The Yankees money line are the Bros Best Bet, with their 4th ranking slugging % and 2nd ranked homer totals, this should be a walk in the park against the Tiger’s RHP Elvin Rodriguez (6.17 ERA) who is still winless on the season.

 

2. Speaking of the Yankees, we’re staying here for “Propagan”Drew’s prop of the day. I mentioned the Yanks can slug, and a lot of that is because Aaron Judge is playing for a new contract and bigger payday. Drew is feeling great about the Yankees over 3.5 Runs prop, and if you are feeling as risky as I am you’ll also throw a shekel or two on the over 8.5 Runs total for the game.

3. Rounding out Friday’s picks, let’s take it to Tampa Bay and lay a few on the Ray’s money line against the up and down Chicago White Sox (no line posted). This is less about the Sox RHP Vince Velasquez (5.3 ERA) only winning two games all year, and more about the absolute filth the Ray’s lefty ace Shane McClanahan (2.01 ERA) has served up on his way to a 5-2 record. Shane the Mac has been almost unhittable and barring a silent performance from the bats in Tampa this should be another W for him.

Another Friday is here, and those Bros Betting Baseball (@bbruh916 / @abookay3) are sporting another winning record of 2 of 3 from last week. Too bad it’s a weekly pick’em, because WHAT A WEEK IT WAS! Check out twitter and give us a follow to see some of the amazing parlays we hit, including an exhilarating 6-Teamer Screamer that was capped off with a Giants 13-12 walk-off vs. the Mets. With that said, let’s get you our 3 winning picks of this Friday, 5/27/2022:

1. We start off in the Midwest, as the beat up San Francisco Giants (no line posted) travel to the suddenly competitive Cincinnati Reds, starting at 12:40 PM Eastern. The Reds have actually looked great, taking the last two games from the Cubs in dominating fashion. That just won’t be enough against the Giants new lefty toy Carlos Rodon, who has been steady with a 3.43 ERA and has 62 Ks through 44 Innings. Take the Giants, and take them BIG.

2. Going back to Cali, let’s head south on the 5 to San Diego where the Padres (-200) welcome the Pittsburgh Pirates (+175) for a 3:40PM Eastern first pitch. As hot as the summer has been, the Fathers are even hotter! 2nd in the NL West, and they’re top 10 across the board in all pitching stats. Taking the bump for SD is Lefty Sean Manaea who actually has a higher ERA (4.04) than his adversary Jose Quintana (ERA 2.43). Quintana hasn’t been bad this year, but the Padre’s bats are better. 11th in Runs and on a hot streak, take the Padres at home.

3. The night cap is the Bro’s Best Bet, as “Propagan”Drew hits you in the face with numbers that will blow you away. Houston Astros (-200) will be in the Pacific Northwest to battle the Seattle Mariners. After a hot start, the Mariners have been more miss than hit in their 2022 campaign. A slumping Chris Flexen (RHP) tries to shake the stank off the Mariners, but he’s got a mountain of a man to climb in the Astro’s vet Justin Verlander (RHP). Drew’s stats are crazy:

  • Mariners are 0-4 in Flexen’s last 4 starts vs. a winning team
  • Astros are 5-0 in their last 5 games after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game
  • Wins vs. Losses MATTER; Verlander is currently 6-1, while Flexen is 1-6 on the year.

Rock the night hard and pick those dirty rotten Astros, and let Vegas take a bath while you swim in those disgusting dollar dollar bills, yal!!!

Welcome back to Bros Betting Baseball, MLBBro.com fam! We were kissin’ sisters last week, as both games and the prop were postponed due to weather, and it was a “PUSH PARTY” hold the Salt n’ Pepa. Let’s try to get back to our winning ways (2 Wins; 1 Loss; 3 Pushes on the season), as “Propag”Andrew (@Abookay3) and I (Seanbo / @Bbruh916) battle the books during a spooky Friday the 13th edition of our picks!

Let’s take you through some of teams looking to get gory revenge, and don’t be scurr’d to drop a few shekels on our monster slate of games!

1. Let’s take our first thrilling pick to the baseball capital, as the St. Louis Cardinals (no lines posted) take on the San Francisco Giants in St. Louis at 8:15pm Eastern. Logan Webb (RHP) was HORRIFIC his last time against the Cardinals, who are bringing in their righty Jordan Hicks (3.78 ERA) to see if they can murder the boys from the bay once again. Webb (3.82 ERA) looks to get some payback, as the Cards (top 20 in all hitting stats) are responsible for his only loss (4-1) on the season. Giants have the silver bullet in Webb, riding a hot streak including 2 wins vs. the Cards, and are our best bet this week.

2. When we’re talking about props, we’re talking strikeouts and runs not fake knives and hatchets. You may think he’s been possessed when you see the Cleveland Guardians RHP Aaron Civale’s sky-high 9.45 ERA, but the guy can’t find the plate right now! We’re a staggering 5-0 when betting the OVER on Runs prop plays vs. poor Aaron on the year. Since Buxton and Correa are doing disgusting things with their bats in the land of lakes, we’re looking at the OVER on Runs for the Minnesota Twins (Total runs line not yet posted).

3. To close out Friday the 13th we head to the scariest place on earth, LOS ANGELES! The Phillies (+185) and lefty Kyle Gibson (3-1) take on the man that gave them nightmares in a near perfect game, LHP Klayton Kershaw (4-0) and the Dodgers (-225). In the battle of goliaths, the Doy-ers are prolific on the mound (1st in ERA, 1st in WHIP, and 3rd in Walks allowed), and the Phillies know a thing or two about swinging the wood (5th BA, 7th Runs, 6th Hits, 3rd Slugging %, and 6th HRs). Baseball heads know you pick pitching over bats, and the Dodgers will close out our trifecta triple play for the week. Good luck, sleep tight, and don’t let the bookies bite!
