Cleveland over Toronto

3:07 PM EST. This play has little to do with Carlos Carrasco (RHP - CLE) and everything to do with backing the Guardians as an underdog in Toronto, but we’ll note that the veteran has had some bad luck this season with a Batting Average on Balls in Play of .307 and a low strand rate of 67.3%. Don’t get us wrong; we are not trying to put lipstick on a pig, and he is a pig, but that matters not here as we’d back the Guardians if your grandma were pitching for them today.

The Blue Jays are going with a bullpen game today, and they will send Trevor Richards (RHP - TOR) to open the game. Richards has pitched in relief all season, but he did open a game one other time back on June 4th, versus Baltimore, which the Blue Jays lost 10-1. In his 32.2 IP this season, Richards has a surface ERA of 3.31, but his xERA is 4.39, and he has 33 Ks to 15 BBs. Those free passes have his walk rate up to a bloated 4.13 BB/9. Wrong side favored.

Compared to other major, well-known sportsbooks, Pinnacle offers superior average odds pricing. Pinnacle’s low betting margins and high betting limits is the best in the biz and will save you thousands of dollars over your betting life.

For instance, a baseball game at most sportsbooks has 20 to 25 cent margins

Arizona     -150

That’s a 25 cent margin but at Pinnacle, it’ll be an 9 cent margin (see example)

Arizona       -145

Detroit    +134

If you bet on sports daily, Pinnacle is a must have because of their low margins.
