While we’re not dropping any bags on the annual Field of Dreams game this year, the #BrosBettingBaseball (@bbruh916/@abookay3) have the insight to get your wallet right! Don’t bother watching any NFL preseason and save your money on that $40 ticket to watch any snoozers posing as blockbuster summer hits in the theatres. Head to your nearest ballpark or catch the action on your own big screen, tap into your local sportsbook or betting app, and punch in three winners from the Bros from MLBBro.com!
1. Nothing beats a summer in South Beach, so let’s take our first trip to Miami as the Marlins (no line posted) host the Atlanta Braves starting at 6:40pm Eastern. The boys from ATL are in bounce back mode after dropping 4 of 5 to the division leading Mets, and tore the Red Sox up to the tune of a 2-game series sweep. Max Fried (10 wins – 4 losses, 2.60 ERA) has made the man with the stats PropaganDrew’s list of top pitchers, sitting comfortably at #15 with his 10 big wins. Miami has been a bottom dweller, and it’s been even worse in August. With just a 2 win – 6 loss record on the month against the Reds, Cubs, and Phillies, we’re all scratching our heads as to what their front office is doing. MLB Bros Jazz Chisholm (Back) and Sandy Alcantara (rest day) won’t be available to help the Marlins starter Pablo Lopez (7 wins – 7 losses, 3.57 ERA). Take the Braves runline -1.5 all the way to the bank!
2. If things weren’t humid enough in Miami, we’re going up the US-301 North to check out the Washington Nationals (+205) on their home field against the visiting San Diego Padres (-245). OH NO! IT’S THE RETURN OF SOTO! Just a few weeks ago the blockbuster trade went down, and both teams have yet to truly reap the benefits of the deal. San Diego is still looking to break out of 2nd place in the NL West as the Dodgers laid the smackdown during their series right after the trade. The Nats have continued their losing ways, dropping 8 of 10 and starting little known Cory Abbott (0 wins – 1 loss, 5.68 ERA) in an attempt to sour the return of Juan Soto. Although the Padre’s righty Mike Clevinger (3 wins – 4 losses, 3.60 ERA) hasn’t been the effective starter he once was, we’re still loving the Padres runline -1.5 in game number 2.
3. As we mentioned, the boys in blue are on a tear! The LA Dodgers (no line posted) travel to the Midwest and bring their undefeated August and 10-win streak to the doorstep of the Kansas City Royals. While the Royals have shown signs of life with a 6 win – 4 loss record thus far in August, they’ll be facing off against the improbable ace in right-hander Tony Gonsolin (Urias has been solid, but we saw that coming). The #BrosBettingBaseball are going goo goo for Gonso! PropaganDrew has him ranked #14 on his list of top pitchers, and his 13 wins, 2.30 ERA, and ridiculous .89 WHIP just solidify our #BrosBestBet in the Dodgers runline -1.5. We’re not playing any games this Friday! Three picks! Three runlines! THREE WINNERS FOR OUR MLB BROS and SISTERS!
We’re welcoming those August dog days of summer at the MLBBro.com offices, but “Don’t call it a comeback!” in the famous words of James Todd Smith because we’ve been rolling with the winners since July! Skip that summer music festival and kick it with the #BrosBettingBaseball (@bbruh916/@abookay3) because we stay working hard to leave you saying “today was a good day” every Friday, hold the Ice Cube. So sit back, relax, and catch a contact with three picks that will leave you screaming “My, my, my!” and we’re willing to share because it ain’t no fun if the homies can’t get none!
1. It’s the 5th of the month, so let’s head to the Land of Bone, Thugs, and Harmony as the Cleveland Guardians (no line posted) look to get “Bizzy” against the Houston Astros starting at 4:10pm Pacific. The Astro’s lefty Framber Valdez looked chopped and screwed in the month of July, as he struggled to just a .500 win percentage and gave up multiple earned runs in every start last month. He’ll be facing off against fellow southpaw Kirk McCarty of Cleveland, who’s astronomical 6.05 ERA makes him more like the man on the moon than a Big League ace. Po’ up and double up on the #BrosBestBet as we’re hoping the rejuvenated Astros -1.5 Runline and their latest trade deadline additions can help them capture a big win and help us secure a big bag.
2. There’s nothing hotter than a New York summer when it comes to the MLB, and the bridge isn’t over when you’re headed to Queens to watch the New York Mets (no line posted) host the Atlanta Braves. The Braves have been So So Def behind starter Ian Anderson as he’s rolled out batters to the tune of 9 wins and 6 losses, despite his 4.99 ERA. But our favorite MLB Bro “Freaky” Taijuan Walker has been an absolute Bonecrusher this season, and he “Ain’t Neva Scared” when he’s sporting 9 wins – 2 losses and a 2.79 ERA to lead the Metropolitans to the top of their division. With the division lead down to 3.5 games between the rivals, we’re still taking the Mets Moneyline to hold on and send the Braves back to the dirty with their tailfeathers tucked between their legs.
3. Finally, let’s head bang and mosh our way up to the Pacific Northwest as the Seattle Mariners (-190) look to stay in a state of Nirvana against the visiting Los Angeles Angels (+160). The Emerald City has picked up the pace since the summer started while the Angels have fallen from grace and were reportedly listening to offers for Sho…Nevermind. You might call the “other team in LA” a bunch of Foo Fighters for constantly cashing out MVPs and coming up short of anything even closely resembling a playoff contender.
Look at the Mariners to continue to win behind lefty starter Robbie Ray (8 wins – 8 losses, 4.11 ERA) as the Angel’s Patrick Sandoval (3 wins – 7 losses, 3.61 ERA) has 5 lost straight games since the start of July, and PropaganDrew pulled even deeper stats showing the Angels are a bottom 5 team vs. left-handed pitchers. Dial up the Mariners Moneyline and kick them nasty losses…because BABY WE’RE BACK!
Welcome MLB Bros and Sisters! We’re waving goodbye to an amazing July with three solid picks and throwing a few dogs into the action. In case your pockets are touching after a weird week of upsets, or if you’re a Boston fan dragging your butt back to the sportsbook after the Blue Jays laid more runs on you than an Olympic track meet, we’ve got your back like bra straps! Get back into the green with the #BrosBettingBaseball team (@bbruh916 / @abookay3)!
1. First, let’s head to the Bronx borough as the New York Yankees (-325) drop the welcome mat for the visiting Kansas City Royals. Remember when everyone was dogging Gerrit Cole for losing velocity after they started checking pitchers for banned substances? Well, no one is dogging the UCLA Bruin now! Cole is the undisputed ace of the Yankees as he sits with 9 wins – 3 losses, 3.09 ERA, and has fanned 153 batters in just 119 innings pitched. The Royals lefty Kris Bubic (2 wins – 6 losses, 5.53 ERA) will have to pitch a nearly perfect game as he faces off with the top ranked team in home runs, slugging %, and runs scored. It doesn’t take a Judge to rule in favor of the Yankees. We’re making this the #BrosBestBet, and taking the Yankees runline -1.5.
2. Next at bat are the home team Los Angeles Angels (-110) taking on the Texas Rangers (-110). Why is this game a pickem? Look no further than the mound, as Texas ace Martin Perez has let his left arm do all the talking. Perez’s 2.59 ERA and 1.18 WHIP has led him to a noteworthy record of 8 wins – 2 losses. The man with the stats PropaganDrew is riding with Perez like he’s in a sidecar doing 100 MPH on the Pacific Coast Highway! He’ll do battle with Patrick Sandoval of the Angels, who only has 3 wins and has been a must-fade with his 3.64 ERA and only 91 strikeouts on the season. Ohtani and Trout can be as great as they want to be, but it doesn’t equate to wins. Take the Rangers moneyline, and let that dog walk all the way to the bank.
3. Finally, we think Vegas lost their mind with the odds they placed on the visiting Minnesota Twins (+100) versus the San Diego Padres (-120). “WHAT YOU TALKING BOUT SEANBO?!” Ok, hear me out…as well as the Padres have performed with a staggering list of players on the IL, they’re still only as good as their pitching. Blake Snell has been one of the biggest disappointments on this team, as he has a record of 2 wins – 5 losses, a 4.75 ERA, and has just 71 Ks on the year. Guess who’s starting for the Padres on Friday? Meanwhile, the Twins are battling for the top spot in their division and their righty Joe Ryan (7 wins – 3 losses, 2.89 ERA) has been more reliable than a 2004 Toyota Camry. Let’s ride ‘Ol reliable to another win, and close this Friday out with another dog in the Minnesota Twins moneyline. Until next Friday, MLBBro.com Fam!
In the famous words of Steven Quincy Urkel, “Did I do thaaaat?”
Yes sir! The Bros Betting Baseball (@bbruh916 / @abookay3) sure did do that! July has been amazing, as the record stands at 4-1-1 and we’re hoping to keep climbing. The good have been bad and the bad have been good in the MLB the past few weeks, as teams seem to be eager to get to the All Star Game (or break depending on who you ask). Let’s keep our picks on the good side of things and hit that trifecta at the sportsbook this third week of July!
1. First game of the day will be in Chi-town at 2:20pm, as the Chicago Cubs (+110) welcome in the New York Mets (-130). My favorite MLB Bro will be on the bump for the Mets, as Taijuan Walker brings his stellar 2.63 ERA and 7 wins – 2 losses record up against another MLB Bro, Marcus Stroman (4.91 ERA, 2 wins – 5 losses). Stro has a lot to chew on and we just don’t think he’ll have enough run support to get through the likes of Pete Alonso (23 HRs, 72 RBIs) and Jeff McNeil (.311 BA). As inconsistent as the last few weeks have been, we still have the New York Mets Moneyline in game 1.
2. Let’s jump to Chocolate City and check out the Washington Nationals (no line posted) as they host the Atlanta Braves at 2:20pm. The Braves will have righty Ian Anderson (4.98 ERA, 7 wins – 5 losses) pitching against the Nat’s lefty Patrick Corbin (5.7 ERA, 4 wins – 11 losses), who has been a favorite fade by my bro with the stats, PropaganDrew. Corbin’s bad year aside, the Brave’s bats have been working harder than Urkel in his pursuit of Laura Winslow (I had to).
With the likes of Austin Riley, Dansby Swanson, and a “Bro you need to Know” in Ronald Acuna Jr., the Braves are top 10 in batting average, runs, hits, and are claiming the top spot in slugging %. Even though I love another bro who was snubbed for the All Star Game in the National’s Josh Bell (.298 BA, 47 RBIs), there is just too much star power in Atlanta to overcome. We’re taking the Atlanta Braves Moneyline in game 2.
3. Unlike 40% of the Kansas City Royals, our final stop will be our friendly neighbors to the north, Toronto! Those Royals (no line posted) will visit the Blue Jays, in a battle of the righties Zack Greinke (4.52 ERA, 3 wins – 5 losses) and Alex Manoah (2.34 ERA, 9 wins – 4 losses). Throw the stats out of the window, never mind the Blue Jays fired their manager, and just focus on the 40% of the roster not making the trip to Toronto because of Canada’s strict COVID regulations. This is the easiest Bros Best Bet ever, as we’re taking the Blue Jays -1.5 Runline to close out our the 15th of July.
