We’re absolutely ROLLING in the wins, MLBbro.com fam! We close out our daily best bets going 3-1 on the week. Let’s keep the momentum strong on a Friday with these three winners.


1. After getting railed by the Red Sox, the Houston Astros (-178) look to get back on track against the struggling Detroit Tigers (+150). They should have a leg-up in the pitching matchup as Framber Valdez (9 wins – 9 losses, 3.55 ERA) hopes to end the month of August the same way he started it when he pitched a no-hitter on the first. With the Tigers’ ranked in the bottom five in every offensive statistical category, it could be a short day for the Astros in Motown.

Tigers tamed. Astros RL -1.5 (+100)


2. These are dark days in New York. With both the Mets and the Yankees (+115) giving little for the greatest fans in baseball to cheer for, the Tampa Bay Rays (-135) look to pour it on the Bronx Bombers. Even with Yankees’ ace Gerrit Cole (10 wins – 4 losses, 3.03 ERA) taking the mound, the Rays’ fourth ranked offense in baseball should run the Yankees out of the ballpark. Cole will put up a solid outing, but without the run support (Yankees are currently 29th in batting average, 29th in hits, and 24th in runs) we doubt it’s enough for a win.


Bros’ best bet! Rays ML (-135).


3. It’s always a good time when the Atlanta Braves (-160) are in town. The league leaders travel to do battle with the San Francisco Giants (+135), and the last time these two teams linked up they gave us some exciting moments in Atlanta. Even though Giants’ starter Logan Webb (9 wins – 9 losses, 3.57 ERA) and Braves’ starter Spencer Strider (14 wins – 4 losses, 3.57 ERA) are giving up less than four runs on average, both offenses have been potent as of late and should hit the over.

Barn burner! Giants/Braves OVER 7.5 total runs (-115)
