This game should be a lot of fun with a ton of runs scored and FML has found a great early angle.
@FastMoneyLabs' MLB Tuesday Play of the Day - 4/25
Boston Red Sox (12-12) @ Baltimore Orioles (15-7)
When these teams meet… the Scorekeepers union should demand a raise! Boston’s scoring the 4th most runs per game (5.67). Baltimore the 6th most (5.14). The Over is a perfect 4-0 head-to-head this season — clearing the closing line by an average margin of +5.88 runs.
Orioles’ starter Kyle Bradish was brilliant last time out vs. weaker competition (Washington Nationals), but Boston knows him very well. I’ve been wrong before but trust the Sox to plate at least 1-2 runs in the first 5 innings.
If I’m right — I love Baltimore’s chances to cash this Same Game Parlay for us at FanDuel. They knocked Boston starter Corey Kluber for 5 earned runs in 3.1 innings on March 30th. Including that, they’ve seen him 7x in the last 2 seasons, scoring 4+ runs in each of the last 4. Kluber’s been consistently bad since then, and advanced metrics aren’t glimmering hope.
If your sportsbook doesn’t offer this SGP in the first 5 innings, consider taking full game BAL +1.5 / O7.5 at a similar price
The Pick: Baltimore +1.5 / O3.5 First 5 Innings (-102) via FanDuel
Capper Penguin's MLB Play of the Day: Cardinals @ Pirates - 6/2
Pittsburgh HAS NOT been striking out early in their games and the only guy that has covered this line recently was Luis Castillo 5 games ago. Besides him, starters haven't hit this......
