This matchup is to set to start at 7:10pm ET (4:10pm PST). Sharp action has been coming in on the Houston Astros, with 59% of all bets coming in on them so far.

Justin Verlander (14-3, 1.81 ERA) is set to start for the Houston Astros, and Zach Plesac (2-9, 4.33 ERA) is scheduled for the Cleveland Guardians. Verlander is currently boasting the best ERA in the MLB.

How to Use the OddsJam Sports Betting Software

The over/under is currently set at 7.5 total runs. Lines are not juiced in either direction. On DraftKings sportsbook, both the over and under 7.5 runs are offered at -110 odds (e.g. bet $110 to win $100).

MLB betting lines can move at any time, though, so make sure to use our MLB Odds Page to get the best odds. Also please, please remember that different states/provinces have different sportsbooks, so you may be able to get better odds than on DraftKings. It is critical to line shop and get the best odds on all of your bets if you want to make money sports betting.

After working on Wall Street for a few years, I realized that sports betting was very similar to financial trading. I started OddsJam to bring data & technology into sports betting. You’ll make a lot more profit with the tools on OddsJam, so try out our sharp sports betting tools! 

How to Make Money Sports Betting

The run line is currently set at 1.5, which is typical for an MLB game. You’ll almost never see an MLB team that is a 2.5 run favorite on the spread. On the moneyline, the Houston Astros are favored on Thursday, August 4. They are -195 odds on DraftKings. The Cleveland Guardians are the underdogs, sitting at +165 moneyline odds on DraftKings.

My first betting pick for 8/4 is the Cleveland Guardians +0.5 run line at +122 odds. I bet this on FanDuel sportsbook for $123. I think that this is one of the best MLB betting picks for 8/4/22.

Again, all prices (e.g. lines) in this betting preview were from DraftKings sportsbook. DraftKings is the 1st sportsbook I registered for once legalized betting began in the United States.

Official Picks: Hit the under 8 runs at -120 odds on FanDuel sportsbook. I played this MLB betting pick for $360.

I also have a player prop pick for this MLB game. I’m on Justin Verlander under 5.5 strikeouts. I bet this on PrizePicks in a two pick Power Play entry. PrizePicks offers fixed price parlays – any two leg parlay is just +200 odds. I found this sharp bet on the OddsJam Positive EV Sports Betting Software.
