Our MLB expert breaks down her top plays and predictions for today’s slate of games below! Read on to find out the F5 bets @GirlWhoBets is eyeing tonight.
7 p.m. ET
Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome back to today’s first five best bets. We are coming off back-to-back sweeps, let’s do it again today!
The first game we are looking at today is the Rangers visiting the Tigers for game one of the series. Today’s pitching matchup features Martin Perez vs. Beau Brieske with the edge going to Perez.
Perez is coming into the game with a 4-2 record and a 1.85 ERA on the road. He is due for a huge bounce-back game and no team is better for that than the Tigers whose offense is one of the worst in the league.
Perez allowed 8 runs against the White Sox in his last game but don’t be surprised if he completely shuts down the Tigers offense today.
For the Tigers, Brieske has a 1-1 home record and a 3.63 ERA. He is coming into the game off his best outing, allowing 0 earned runs. So he is due for some negative regression tonight.
Rangers bats have been also heating up a bit so that’s not a good sign for Brieske. Look for the Rangers to score some early runs on Brieske and cash the first five moneyline for us.
10:10 p.m. ET
Tonight’s only late game will be the Angels visiting the Mariners in a game where two cold offenses will face off.
Shohei Ohtani will take the mound for the Angels tonight and his team is in need of a win. They have been struggling the past three weeks but Ohtani should be the difference tonight.
In his last game, he only allowed 1 run and will be looking to repeat a similar performance tonight.
The Mariners are going with George Kirby and he has been exceptional this season with a 3.94 ERA. He has allowed 4 home runs in his last two games, which can be a problem tonight when facing hitters like Ohtani and Trout.
I’m backing the Angels F5 moneyline and putting my trust in Ohtani to have another excellent pitching performance, let’s get another sweep!
