MLB Best Bets Of The Day – 09/29/2021

  • The Detroit Tigers are +145 on the moneyline against the Minnesota Twins -175.
  • The New York Yankees are -120 betting favorites against the Toronto Blue Jays EVEN.
  • The Boston Red Sox have a -160 line to cover the runline against the Baltimore Orioles +135.

MINNEAPOLIS – The MLB regular season has just five days remaining, which gives bettors only a few chances to get their picks in before the postseason begins. For Wednesday’s slate of games, value is littered throughout the schedule.

Detroit Tigers Vs. Minnesota Twins

The Detroit Tigers seem to carry the most value of any team in the MLB on Wednesday. Online sportsbooks list them as underdogs to the Minnesota Twins, but they could very well walk out with a win.

Tigers Vs. Twins Moneyline Odds

  • Detroit Tigers +145
  • Minnesota Twins -175

The pitching matchup is nearly identical as Casey Mize (3.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) and Michael Pineda (3.73 ERA, 1.23 WHIP) have very similar stats going into this contest. However, Detroit has the edge at the plate. Minnesota ranks 25th in wOBA, 20th in SLG, 27th in OBP, 27th in BA, and 21st in wRC+ over the last month.

The Tigers are better in each category, with being 18th in OBP over the last month as their most disappointing section. The game is set to start at 7:40 p.m. EST and can be seen live on MLB.TV.

New York Yankees Vs. Toronto Blue Jays

The New York Yankeesmagic number is down to three and they are seemingly in a good spot to reduce that number in this matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Yankees Vs. Blue Jays Moneyline Odds

  • New York Yankees -120
  • Toronto Blue Jays EVEN

For many, getting Gerrit Cole at just -120 odds would be enough to bet on in itself, but there’s more than that siding in New York’s direction. Over the last two weeks, the Yankees have been on fire, ranking third in wOBA, second in wRC+, third in SLG, and third in OBP. The Blue Jays are in the bottom 10 in each category over the same time span. Those betting on the MLB might have a steal in this spot.

Boston Red Sox Vs. Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles have been one of the worst teams all season and are now set to face the Boston Red Sox who currently hold a 0.5 game lead in the Wild Card race. Boston has everything to play for, while the Orioles have the opposite.

Red Sox Vs. Orioles Runline Odds

  • Boston Red Sox -1.5 -160
  • Baltimore Orioles +1.5 +135

Over the course of the season, Baltimore has the worst run differential of any team (-276) by over 50 runs. Meanwhile, Boston is in the top 10 in run differential (+72). The pitching matchup is slanted heavily in the Red Sox’s favor with Nate Eovaldi (3.88 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) facing Zac Lowther (7.66 ERA, 1.66 WHIP). There’s still value on the -160 line despite sports betting sites acknowledging the discrepancy between the two teams.

MLB.TV will have coverage of the AL East meeting starting at 7:05 p.m. EST.
