Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 8/3/22
PHI (120) at ATL (-142)
Pick: Bet $10 PHI
Notes: Both of these teams are primed and ready for a playoff push.
With 11 games left against the Nationals for the Phillies and 7 games against the Nats left for the Braves, these teams could also be making a push to win the NL East.
But one team will lose some ground today and I think it will be the Braves.
Atlanta has won 4 games in a row after sweeping the D-Backs and winning over the Phillies yesterday.
But near-elite Zach Wheeler will get the start today for the Phils.
Other than a blip against the Blue Jays a few starts back, Wheeler has been stellar for the Phils.
He’ll match up against Charlie Morton – who continues to be a serviceable pitcher at his age.
Morton is capable of going 7 strong innings or giving up 5 or 6 runs in a blink of an eye.
But overall he’s been having better starts as of late.
The Phils’ offense was quiet yesterday and I think it wakes up today to grab a win.
$10 bet on Philadelphia.
LAD (-162) at SF (136)
Pick: Bet $10 SF
Notes: The Dodgers swept a 3 game series against the Giants the last time they played.
And now they look to continue that winning streak to 6 today.
Standing in their way is Alex Cobb – who has pitched much better as of late.
The Dodgers will counter with Julio Urias.
Urias has been very good and even escaped his last start in Colorado with only 2 earned runs in 7 innings pitched.
That’s practically like pitching a perfect game anywhere else.
The Dodgers will need to keep winning games to fend off the heavily trade active Padres.
But I think they slip today and the Giants sneak out a win.
$10 bet on San Francisco.
