Baltimore Orioles at Cleveland Guardians Betting Tips:

BAL – Spenser Watkins 3.96 ERA/4.26 FIP
CLE – Cal Quantrill 3.59 ERA/4.32 FIP

Watkins has been decent of late with a 3.81 ERA/3.82 FIP. His strikeouts don’t impress, but he keeps walks down and gets a decent amount of groundballs. The Guardians offense is cold right now with just an 83 wRC+ over the past two weeks.

The Orioles have been an average offense as well and Quantrill has looked solid over his past five starts with a 2.25 ERA/3.47 FIP. A very similar profile to Watkins.
Neither of these offense are all that impressive and 4.5 feels like a big ask.

Orioles/Guardians Under 4.5 First 5 Innings (-110)

St. Louis Cardinals at Cincinnati Reds Betting Tips:

STL – Dakota Hudson 4.23 ERA/4.41 FIP
CIN – Justin Dunn 5.12 ERA/7.32 FIP

Seattle Mariners at Detroit Tigers Betting Tips:

SEA – George Kirby 3.32 ERA/3.19 FIP
DET – Matt Manning 2.37 ERA/3.23 FIP

Kirby has been killing it of late with a 2.86 ERA/1.22 FIP over his past five starts and he gets the best match-up a pitcher could ask for. The Tigers offense has just a 72 wRC+ against righties this season. They strikeout, don’t walk much and are one of the weakest power hitting teams in the game. The Mariners bullpen has been on fire of late.

Manning has looked good of late with a 2.40 ERA/3.09 FIP over his past five starts and the bullpen behind him is pretty good.

Seattle should win and they should score, but I don’t think they blow out here.

I debated between the game under and Tigers under 3.5, but the price on that bet was too high.

Mariners/Tigers Under 7.5 Runs (-105)

Boston Red Sox at Minnesota Twins Betting Tips:

BOS – Kutter Crawford 5.30 ERA/4.22 FIP
MIN – Chris Archer 4.34 ERA/4.35 FIP

Kansas City Royals at Chicago White Sox Betting Tips:

KCR – Brady Singer 3.15 ERA/3.55 FIP
CHW – Lucas Giolito 5.14 ERA/4.09 FIP

Can Gio have some good luck here? His ERA has outpaced his FIP all season and it’s been worse of late with a 5.13 ERA/2.71 FIP over his past five starts. He gets a very friendly match-up to make it right here as the Royals have an 89 wRC+ against righties on the season and a 73 wRC+ over the past two weeks.

Singer has been excellent of late with a 2.23 ERA/3.47 FIP, but he’s been lucky in the opposite way.

The White Sox offense has a 95 wRC+ against righties which isn’t great but better than KC.

I see a real pitcher’s duel early and this one going under for the F5, but as soon as Singer leaves the White Sox should run away with it. The Royals bullpen has a 122 FIP- over the past month.

Royals/White Sox Under 4 Runs First 5 Innings (-105)
White Sox Moneyline (-124)
