OKBET MLB Betting Update: MLB Odds, Picks, & Predictions Oct. 3rd 2022

Since the 2-0 day on Thursday of the week before, we have been chewing at the bit in anticipation of getting back into play this week. The majority of the games that will take place over the next three days in Major League Baseball will not have a lot riding on them because 11 of the 12 playoff positions have already been secured and all but one division race has been won. However, this also implies that there is an excellent opportunity to find value since the oddsmakers will still overvalue some teams despite the fact that they have nothing to play for.

The following is a list of our top picks for Monday’s Major League Baseball action. (These odds were provided by OKBET.)

Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins RL

The Miami Marlins have a record of 3-14 when Jesus Luzardo (3-7, 3.53) is on the mound for them this season. Luzardo has made 17 starts for the Marlins so far this year. This includes losing nine games in a row and 12 of the last 13. When he does start, though, the question that arises is whether or not to bet against him and the Marlins on the run line. This is due to the fact that six of Miami’s most recent eight defeats, when Luzardo pitched, were decided by a single run. As a result of the fact that this is one of the few games out of these 15 in which the outcome is crucial for one of the teams, we will be betting on the motivated favorites to win against a squad that is just playing out the string.

Bryce Elder of Atlanta, who has a record of 2-3 and an ERA of 2.76, faced the Marlins in consecutive starts in the middle of August and the beginning of September. In those 13 combined innings, he struck out 16 batters while only allowing one run on five hits. The Miami Marlins’ record against teams with a winning record is 30 games below.500, which ranks as the third-worst in the National League. We predict that the Atlanta Braves will win big tonight and move closer to winning their division.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Oakland Athletics RL

We are excited to take advantage of the fact that these two teams are moving in opposite directions because it gives us a competitive edge down the stretch. During their current seven-game winning streak, the Angels have outscored their opponents by a total of 22 runs (tied for the longest active streak in the majors). In the meantime, Oakland has dropped six of their last seven games and has scored a total of 12 runs throughout their losing streak. This streak includes Oakland being swept away by the Angels in three games last week while on the road. In those games, Oakland scored a combined total of only six runs.

Over the past week, the A’s have posted batting averages of just.161 and slugging percentages of.242, along with a.209 BABIP and a pitiful.081 ISO. As a result, we anticipate that Los Angeles’ Patrick Sandoval, who has a record of 6-9 and a 3.03 earned run average, will improve on his 2.11 ERA over his previous seven starts. On top of that, his ERA, WHIP, OBA, and HR/9 ratio are all better when he’s pitching away from home, and all indications point to him holding this shaky Oakland offense in check once more en route to a comfortable victory by a margin of at least two runs.

Team Totals for the Detroit Tigers and the Seattle Mariners

George Kirby, a rookie for the Mariners, has an 8-4 record and a 3.21 ERA. In his previous 14 starts, he has only suffered one loss, and in his past seven, he has thrown to a 2.55 ERA. In his one and only career start against the Tigers, he kept them scoreless over five innings, limited them to just two hits, and struck out five batters in the process. Kirby is backed up by a bullpen that has a 3.31 ERA over the past 30 days and has only allowed hard contact on 26.9% of batted balls, which is significantly better than the average for the league.

Due to the fact that his walk rate of 3.6% places him in the 99th percentile throughout the league, Kirby does not give away any free passes. Even though he does not strike out a lot of batters (17th percentile in whiff rate), he makes up for it with an impressive xERA/xwOBA that places him in the top 25 percent of the league. The under has been successful in 37 of Seattle’s 70 games played immediately following a loss, and we anticipate that Kirby will contribute to the team’s efforts to limit scoring in this matchup.
