It’s taken a lot of scratching and clawing to open up this final week before the MLB All-Star break with a pair of victories. The latest Houdini effort involved holding on to an Under 8 bet despite a 5-0 score in the third inning of last night’s Tigers-Rays game. It’s just what I do. I’ll try to keep it going tonight, minus the sweating.
Zylbert’s 2018 MLB Over/Under Betting Record: 60-38-3, +18.05 units
Yesterday’s Result: Tigers-Rays Under 8, Boyd vs. Stanek (WIN)
*Each bet graded as if it were to win 1 unit
St. Louis Cardinals @ Chicago White Sox | O/U: 9.5
8:10 p.m. ET
Probable Pitchers: Luke Weaver (5-7, 4.92 ERA) vs. Carlos Rodon (1-3, 4.29 ERA)
When you see a matchup with two starting pitchers who appear to both be trending up entering their final starts before the All-Star break, with an over/under line as high as 9.5 and taking place in a relatively friendly park toward pitchers, it’s always worth a look. In this case, it’s an under bet worth taking.
