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.
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.
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!
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!
Guardians vs. Padres Best Bets, Odds, Predictions
9:40 p.m. ET
Next, I have a sharp play for the Cleveland Guardians vs. San Diego Padres game on Tuesday. I’m backing the Guardians on the moneyline at +147 odds. It’s another $2,000 play for me, and my bet slip is below.
Marlins vs. Athletics Best Bets, Odds, Predictions
9:40 p.m. ET
I have a prop bet for the Marlins vs. Athletics game as well. I’m backing the Marlins Team Total over 3.5 runs at -110 odds at WynnBet. This was another sharp bet from OddsJam. My prediction is that the Marlins put up at least five runs in this game on Tuesday.
