The computers at OddsTrader have three more best bets for tonight’s MLB slate. Let’s keep riding with these bets!

Picks Summary


Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Guardians

Tuesday, August 08, 2023 – 07:10 PM EDT at Progressive Field


Our AI Model believes that Guardians will earn a 4.2-3.2 win over the Blue Jays tonight. That’s significant, with the Guardians sitting at +105 to win tonight’s game.

Yusei Kikuchi will take the hill for the Blue Jays tonight. He’s a left-handed pitcher, holding teams to a .037 ISO and wOBA of .282. However, the AI Model doesn’t think Kikuchi’s success will last.

Kikuchi has allowed a .189 ISO and wOBA of .331 against 485 batters this season. He’s had a better month, but overall, he’s been a below-average pitcher this season. He’ll take on a Guardians lineup that lost Josh Naylor and no longer has Amed Rosario. The team has a lot of bats that haven’t seen many lefties since being inserted into the lineup.

Still, Cleveland’s lineup has five batters striking out 18.2% of the time or less against lefties. The Guardians should put the ball in play and make things happen. Meanwhile, Tanner Bibee will man the mound for Cleveland. He’s struck out 28.1% of righties in the last month. Tonight, he’ll face a Blue Jays lineup that should have seven righties.

He’s also limited righties to a 15.2% line drive rate and doesn’t allow nearly as much hard contact to righties as lefties.

Let’s take the Guardians to sneak by with a victory tonight.

MLB Pick: Guardians ML (+105) at Caesars Sportsbook


Colorado Rockies vs. Milwaukee Brewers

Tuesday, August 08, 2023 – 08:10 PM EDT at American Family Field


Our AI Model believes the Rockies and Brewers will combine for just 6.5 runs in tonight’s game. With the total sitting at 8.5, there’s value with the total tonight.

The Rockies are not in Coors Field. Instead, they’re on the road in Milwaukee. That’s going to push the total for this game down.

Kyle Freeland will get the start for Colorado. He’s a left-handed pitcher, allowing only 5.1% of walks in the last month. Against righties, Freeland has earned nearly 49% of ground balls and 22.2% of fly balls. He’s been unlucky, giving up a .405 BABIP over the last month to righties.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee’s lineup has potential, but they also have five batters hitting an ISO of .080 or worse against lefties. On the other hand, Wade Miley will get the start for the Brewers. Miley has held righties to a .111 ISO and wOBA of .271 over the last 30 days.

He’ll take on a Rockies lineup that has combined to hit a .104 ISO and wOBA of .266 with 33.1% of strikeouts over the last month against lefties. This projected lineup has struggled. Only Jurickson Profar has put up elite numbers in all categories against lefties.

The Rockies might not score a run. Take the Under at the MLB odds board. The AI Model is right.

MLB Pick: Under 8.5 (-105) at Caesars Sportsbook


San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Angels

Tuesday, August 08, 2023 – 09:38 PM EDT at Angel Stadium


The AI Model suggests that the Giants and Angels will combine for 12.2 runs in tonight’s game. With the total at 8, there’s so much potential with the Over in tonight’s matchup.

Scott Alexander will get the start, but Alex Wood will pitch the bulk of tonight’s game for the Giants. Wood has allowed a .184 ISO and wOBA of .347 to his last 57 batters. He’s also allowed a .174 ISO and wOBA of .347 to 282 batters this season.

The Angels got better offensively against lefties with the additions of C.J. Cron and Randal Grichuk. Both have hit at an above-average rate against lefties over the last month. Plus, the Angels have only struck out 15.6% of the time against lefties in the last month using their projected lineup.

On the other hand, Lucas Giolito will start for the Angels. He’s been one of the worst pickups at the MLB Trade Deadline. Giolito has watched his last 112 batters hit a .347 ISO and wOBA of .433.

The Giants have five bats hitting an ISO of at least .158 and four batters hitting an ISO of at least .200. San Francisco should slug off a struggling Giolito. On top of that, the bullpen continues to blow games and leads.

The over is the play in this game for you to take at one of the top online sportsbooks.

MLB Pick: Over 8 (-122) at Caesars Sportsbook
