  • England has -110 odds to cover the -0.5, -1 spread against Poland in their World Cup Qualifier match.

MIAMI – The MLB season draws closer to its close, while the US Open does the same on Wednesday. Also, World Cup Qualifier matchups continue to roll on in Europe as England and Poland are set to meet in the afternoon.

MLB Betting: New York Mets Vs. Miami Marlins

The New York Mets and Miami Marlins will play one another on Wednesday night in what is expected to be a low-scoring game. Online sportsbooks have the total for this game set as the lowest of any MLB game on the slate.

Mets Vs. Marlins Total Odds

  • OVER 7.5 EVEN
  • UNDER 7.5 -120

However, the OVER might be the play for sports bettors to make here. Sandy Alcantara and Rich Hill are the starting pitchers and while neither are horrible, neither are necessarily spectacular either. The Marlins have struggled a little at the plate but the Mets have been a borderline top 10 team in the batter’s box over the last 30 days.

Usually, when MLB betting sites have a total set this low, all the stats point heavily towards a low-scoring game yet that really isn’t the case for this one.

US Open Odds: Karolina Pliskova Vs. Maria Sakkari

Karolina Pliskova and Maria Sakkari will compete for a spot in the US Open semifinals as they face off with one another on Wednesday night. Pliskova is ranked higher in the WTA world rankings and is listed as a minor favorite for this match.

Pliskova Vs. Sakkari Moneyline Odds

  • Karolina Pliskova -135
  • Maria Sakkari +110

Sakkari wins just 63.9% of her service games but makes up for it with her 41.6% win rate on return. Pliskova takes home 70.1% of her games on serve, as well as 34.9% of her return games. Since Sakkari has taken down multiple top 10 opponents already, tennis betting sites are forced to keep the line close but all this does is allow Pliskova to get an even better price as the more talented player.

World Cup Qualifying: Poland Vs. England

England and Poland are currently holding the top two spots in the Group I standings. Although, that doesn’t necessarily mean the two are close to equal. England has been dominating their qualifiers and shouldn’t have much issue continuing to do so.

Poland Vs. England Spread Odds

  • England -0.5, -1 -110
  • Poland +0.5, +1 -110

England is 5-0 in qualifying thus far and has done so through their 17 goals made and just one goal allowed. Poland has scored 18 goals, the most in the group, but England’s defense may be too much to overcome. Soccer betting fans should feel confident that England will cover the spread as their defense is simply too strong to get beat down.
