Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 8/12/21

MLB

Sports Bet Picks for 8/12/21

 

DET (128) at BAL (-139)

Pitchers: M. Manning (ERA: 6.62 – Road ERA: 9.32 – Avg. ML: 140) vs. J. Means (ERA: 2.84 – Home ERA: 4.72 – Avg. ML: 114)

Pick: Bet $10 BAL

Notes: The Orioles have lost 7 in a row but put their staff ace on the mound today. John Means has looked more ace-like his last two starts and that explains Baltimore being the favorite today. Matt Manning’s terrible pitching probably also plays a role in that line.

I think the O’s nab a win today. I don’t love paying for them but I will.

$10 bet on Baltimore.

 

TEX (177) at SEA (-194)

Pitchers: M. Foltynewicz (ERA: 5.91 – Road ERA: 7.78 – Avg. ML: 148) vs. M. Gonzales (ERA: 5.03 – Home ERA: 5.74 – Avg. ML: 121)

Pick: Bet $10 TEX

Notes: Seattle edged out a win yesterday but the Rangers have played them tough in this series. Texas only has 14 road wins on the season but I do think there is value with betting them today. Despite the awful season stats for both starters, each one has pitched very well over their last two starts. Gonzales still has the edge but not sure it’s worth this big line for Seattle.

Calculated lottery ticket here. $10 bet on the Rangers.

 

CIN (136) at ATL (-148)

Pitchers: V. Gutierrez (ERA: 4.18 – Road ERA: 3.12 – Avg. ML: 122) vs. K. Muller (ERA: 2.5 – Home ERA: 3.91 – Avg. ML: 133)

Pick: Bet $10 ATL

Notes: The Braves are on the verge of sweeping the Reds – creating a terrible scenario for Sex Panther. Either the team he roots for gets swept or the team he declared as the grand overlords of the NL East lose ground.

And I think that sweep happens today. Kyle Muller has pitched very well – despite a 2-3 record – and that Braves’ offense is thumping. Vladimir Gutierrez has a winning record but he’s hittable. So if he gets in trouble, I think the Braves could run away with this one.

$10 bet on Atlanta.

 

COL (152) at SF (-166)

Pitchers: G. Marquez (ERA: 3.22 – Road ERA: 3.47 – Avg. ML: 113) vs. L. Webb (ERA: 3.26 – Home ERA: 1.91 – Avg. ML: 103)

Pick: Bet $10 SF

Notes: The Giants have won 4 in a row after dismantling a bad road team in the D-Backs in a 2-game set. Now they welcome another bad road team as the Rockies head to town. Logan Webb has pitched fantastic at home and the Rockies’ offense disappears when they leave Coors Field.

San Francisco should get the win today.

$10 bet on the Giants.
