Sharp MLB Picks for Tuesday: Breaking Down 16 Games on August 23, including Guardians vs. Padres

We have 16 MLB games on Tuesday, August 23. In this betting preview, I’ll be sharing my picks and predictions for these games. I have a variety of sharp bets locked in from OddsJam. Time to make money!

White Sox vs. Orioles Picks, Predictions

7:05 p.m. ET

The first play I’m on is in the Chicago White Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles game. I bet the Orioles moneyline at +143 odds at WynnBet. My prediction is that the Orioles will win this game on Tuesday 4-2. My bet slip is below. This was a Positive EV bet from OddsJam, and I hit it for $2,000.

White Sox vs. Orioles Best Bets for 8/23

I think Dylan Cease will have a short outing on Tuesday, so I also locked in the prop bet of Cease u6.5 Ks at +110 odds at FanDuel. This was another Positive EV play.

Player Prop Odds

As seen in the screenshot above, FanDuel is offering +110 odds on Cease under 6.5 strikeouts. No other sportsbook is even offering odds above -110! That’s called ridiculous value at FanDuel.

As a sharp, profitable sports bettor, it is critical to look for value in the odds. This is called line shopping. Why would you bet on Dylan Cease under 6.5 Ks at -119 odds at Caesars when you can get +110 odds on this same exact bet at FanDuel? It makes no sense!

The OddsJam MLB Odds Screen has real-time baseball betting lines from over 50 sportsbooks, including FanDuel and DraftKings. Make sure to line shop and always get the best possible odds – this is sports betting 101!

I locked in this prop for the max I could, which was roughly $25. I experience pretty rough “betting limits” on FanDuel.

Regardless, my bet slip from FanDuel is below. I think that Dylan Cease under 6.5 Ks at +110 odds is one of the best MLB player prop bets for Tuesday, August 23.

Rangers vs. Rockies Best Bets, Odds, Predictions

8:40 p.m. ET

Next, I have a bet on the Texas Rangers vs. Colorado Rockies game. I locked in the Rangers at +113 odds at WynnBet for $2,000. This was another Positive EV play from OddsJam, and I love the value in it!

Rangers vs. Rockies Moneyline Odds

There’s very low market width in this play. Thus, we have high confidence that our bet is sharp and mathematically profitable. I locked in this bet for $2,000, and my bet slip is below. Best of luck if tailing!
