Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 7/29/22

Sports Bet Picks for 7/29/22


PHI (-126) at PIT (108)

Pick: Bet $10 PIT

Notes: The Pirates have lost 4 games in a row by a total of 5 runs.

This includes an 8-7 loss to the Phillies last night.

So I give them a shot at winning today.

Especially with Bailey Falter on the mound today for Philly.

Falter is 0-3 with a 5.18 ERA.

The Pirates will counter with Jose Quintana who is coming off a stellar last start.

Quintana has been lit up a few times this year but overall has been quite dependable.

I’m losing value but still seems that the value is on Pittsburgh here.

$10 bet on the Pirates.


OAK (168) at CWS (-200)

Pick: Bet $10 OAK

Notes: If you missed it, Oakland just swept the Astros and have now won 4 out of 5.

Chicago lost on Wednesday – dropping them back down to .500.

The White Sox still have a chance to win the Central and you would have to think they are buyers before the deadline.

Starting pitching should be a focus – unless they can trade for a new manager.

Maybe Joe Maddon would come back to Chicago.

That’d be fun.

Anyway, pitching, yes.

The White Sox have had some issues there.

And Lance Lynn has been a part of those issues.

James Kaprielian hasn’t been stellar but he’s been better than Lynn.

So I think with him starting, the way the A’s have played lately and Chicago’s inconsistent play all year, the value is on Oakland today.

$10 bet on the A’s.


SEA (144) at HOU (-172)

Pick: Bet $10 HOU

Notes: Speaking of Houston, the Astros bounced back from their sweep in Oakland by beating Seattle yesterday.

Today they put their ace on the mound as 13-3, Cy Young contender Justin Verlander takes on previous Cy Young winner Robbie Ray.

Ray is having a decent season but not the quality we saw last season in Toronto.

These two teams met just last weekend and the Astros swept Seattle.

I think more of the same this weekend.

$10 bet on Houston.
