Daily Sports Betting Preview 07/28/2021 – Connor Fields, Caeleb Dressel, Detroit Tigers Odds

  • Connor Fields has EVEN odds to place top three in the men’s BMX race.
  • Caeleb Dressel is EVEN to win the 100m freestyle as the betting favorite.
  • The Detroit Tigers are +115 on the moneyline against the Minnesota Twins.

TOKYO – A pair of Olympians are projected to win gold medals on Tuesday in Connor Fields and Caeleb Dressel. Plus, the Detroit Tigers remain underdogs against the Minnesota Twins in some of the best bets of the day.

Connor Fields Favored To Repeat In BMX Race

Connor Fields won the gold medal in 2016 in the men’s BMX race and is favored to do so again on Tuesday night.

The field is closely contested as Fields has +400 odds as the favorite, but betting on Fields to place on the podium may be the safest play, but the odds on online sportsbooks still leave value on it.

Tokyo 2021 - Men's BMX Racing

  • Connor Fields (USA) EVEN
  • Niek Kimmann (NED) +140
  • Sylvain Andre (FRA) +140
  • Joris Daudet (FRA) +160
  • David Graf (SUI) +200
  • Simon Marquart (SUI) +200

Fields became the first American to win a gold medal in any Olympic BMX event and now he looks to become the first to do so twice. He may win the gold again, but the EVEN odds justify cutting down the risk without eliminating value in this event.

Caeleb Dressel – Mens 100m Freestyle

In 2016, Caeleb Dressel finished sixth in this event, but he was just 20-years-old. Since, he has won the World Championships gold medal in the 100m freestyle in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and has quickly become one of the top swimmers in the world. Olympic betting sites set Dressel as a favorite to win his first individual Olympic gold medal.

Tokyo 2021 - Men's 100m Freestyle

  • Caeleb Dressel (USA) EVEN
  • Kliment Kolesnikov (ROC) +250
  • Kyle Chalmers (AUS) +350
  • Alessandro Miressi (ITA) +900

Simply put, Dressel has dominated this event for the past four years and is rightfully placed as the EVEN-money favorite. When there’s a person with -1200 odds to finish in the top three, getting them to win the event with any sort of value seems like a good betting opportunity.

MLB Betting – Detroit Tigers vs Minnesota Twins

The Detroit Tigers were underdogs on Monday and were able to emerge with a win, now, with arguably an even better pitching matchup, the team remains as the underdogs against an unimpressive Minnesota Twins team.

Those betting on the MLB should note that the Twins rank as one of the five worst teams in the MLB in the batter’s box over the last two weeks. In wOBA (.295), wRC+ (86), SLG (.380), OBP (.295) and BA (.221) the Twins are in the bottom five.

Tigers vs Twins Moneyline Odds

  • Detroit Tigers +115
  • Minnesota Twins -135

The Tigers will send Wily Peralta to the mound who carries a 2.56 ERA and 1.01 WHIP this season while the Twins are throwing J.A. Happ who has a 6.14 ERA and 1.49 WHIP on the year.

The Detroit offense, which is within the top 10 in BA, SLG, wOBA and wRC+ over the last two weeks, should be able to put enough runs on the board if the pitching were to somehow struggle.
