We are two for two this week on our best bets and we've got another heater for you on Thursday.
Like yesterday, we’re going to focus on a parlay total and give you one under and one over.
For the under, we go to the Trop in Tampa Bay, one of the best pitcher parks in all of baseball. The Rays are great at home, but they’ve been horrific recently at scoring. They haven’t scored more than three runs in six of the last 10 games and even though the Orioles are potent, the teams scored 3, 6 and 3 runs when they played at Tampa earlier this season.
The under is 8 (-110). I like buying it to 9 and smashing that mark at -165.
My over today is Twins vs. Mariners. This is the fourth game of the homestand and the previous games have yielded 13, 13 and 9 runs. Today’s pitchers, George Kirby and Pablo Lopez, leave a lot to be desired. And both teams are averaging about 8 runs total over their last 20 games.

Take the over 7.5 (+100) and buy back a run to 6.5 (-160).
So, to review, we’re taking the Orioles vs. Rays under 9 and the Twins vs. Mariners over 6.5. At BetMGM, you can play that at stellar +161 odds.
