Best MLB Bets Of The Day – 06/30/2021

  • The total for the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates game is set at 11 with the Under being the betting underdog.
  • The Boston Red Sox are just -160 on the moneyline against the Kansas City Royals.
  • The Houston Astros team total of 6.0 runs has EVEN odds despite a favorable matchup.

PITTSBURGH – With 15 games on the MLB docket for Wednesday, there are many betting opportunities on the board.

We’ll go over a couple of the best bets of the day throughout the MLB slate.

Rockies vs Pirates Under 11.0 Runs

This is the same total we talked about yesterday and the Under hit then, and it’s likely to hit again this time around. The Rockies remain with a bottom-five ranked wOBA, ISO and wRC+ in the month of June while the Rockies are still below the league average in many statistical categories including wRC+ where their 90 is one of the five worst in the MLB.

Pirates vs Rockies Total Betting Odds

  • Over 11.0 -115
  • Under 11.0 -105

If online sportsbooks aren’t going to move the line, then anyone betting on the MLB should keep taking advantage of it.

The pitching matchup is slightly less favorable than it was on Tuesday, but the line is still set high enough to justify backing the Under.

Boston Red Sox vs Kansas City Royals Moneyline Odds

Martin Perez and Mike Minor will be taking the mound on Wednesday in a left-handed duel. Boston has hit lefties far better than the Royals this year, posting a .328 wOBA compared to a .302, a 104 wRC+ as opposed to a 88, and a .759 OPS in contrast to a .696.

Royals vs Red Sox Moneyline Odds

  • Boston Red Sox -160
  • Kansas City Royals +140

Aside from the statistical advantage, Boston is simply a better team. They have a 49-31 record while the Royals have a 33-45 record. Kansas City is also 15-26 on the road this season and the Red Sox are 25-17 at home.

Houston Astros Team Total Over 6.0

The Astros, despite losing the first two games of the series against the Baltimore Orioles, are in a great spot to break out in the final game of the series. Matt Harvey will pitch for Baltimore who carries a 7.54 ERA.

In his last four starts, Harvey has compiled 16.1 innings pitched and 20 earned runs. Putting that up against the thriving Astros offense spells trouble for Harvey.

Astros Team Total Odds

  • Over 6.0 Runs EVEN
  • Under 6.0 Runs -130

Houston pretty much sweeps the MLB atop all of the major batting categories including wOBA, wRC+, BA, OBP and SLG, which may leave a bettor surprised that sports betting sites the odds are only EVEN for the Astros to score 6 runs, something they’ve done in 16 of their 27 games in June.
