Best AL Cy Young Value Picks From BetQL Staff
AL Cy Young Odds: Best Value Picks Lucy Burdge: Shohei Ohtani, Angels (+800, BetMGM) There’s a ton of value in Ohtani here to win the Cy Young. He’s better than Babe Ruth and he can do it all with his domination on the mound. He has a 9-4 record, 2.38 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 123 strikeouts in 87 innings. He’s had 10-plus strikeouts in his last four starts and there seems to be no stopping him now. And he is, unsurprisingly, headed to the All-Star Game. So I’m all-in on Ohtani to win the AL Cy Young, especially at this great price. MORE: NL CY YOUNG VALUE PICKS Brad Pinkerton: Gerrit Cole, Yankee...
Best AL & NL MVP Value Picks From BetQL Staff
Best AL & NL MVP Value Picks Dan Karpuc: Mookie Betts NL MVP (+1200, BetMGM) I’m not touching the AL MVP race because I think ultimately it’ll come down to Aaron Judge and Shohei Ohtani. However, I think there’s a substantial opportunity to get exposure to quality players in the National League right now, especially since Paul Goldschmidt is such a heavy favorite at the moment. Enter Mookie Betts, who is slashing .277/.354/.547 entering Wednesday with 18 home runs, 42 RBI, 15 doubles and 56 runs scored in 62 games played. Most importantly, he is someone who can get red-hot and put up massive...
Juan Soto Trade Causes Padres World Series Odds To Plummet
Juan Soto Traded To San Diego Padres For Massive Haul Tuesday morning has been a crazy one in the sports world, as we finally know where 23-year-old superstar Juan Soto is going to end up. The San Diego Padres have pulled the trigger on the young star, while also acquiring All-Star Josh Bell in the same deal with the Nationals to further bolster their offense to make one of the most lethal lineups in MLB. It was one of the biggest deals to go down in baseball history, and now San Diego has a core that features Soto, Bell, Fernando Tatis Jr. (when healthy), and Manny Machado. It didn't come ...
Top MLB Player Prop Bets For Friday, Aug. 12
Top MLB Player Prop Bets Let's take a look at some of the best MLB player prop bets for today's games, according to BetQL and BetMGM staff members. Alejandro Kirk, Blue Jays Over 1.5 Bases vs. Guardians (+120, BetMGM) Kirk is batting .305 with an OBP of .388 this year, and he has landed six hits in just his last seven games — not a shabby season at all. He has recorded at least two bases in each of his last two games, so I’m excited to see if he can back it up tonight. Tonight, Kirk will be going up against the Guardians’ Cal Quantrill for the first time this season. Quantrill is currently ...

MLB Gas Can Alert For Saturday, August 13
San Diego Padres vs. Anibal Sanchez (7.56 ERA), Washington Nationals The Padres offense features some of the best players in the sport: Juan Soto. They traded for Soto at the deadline, so this will be an early homecoming for him getting to face his former team. You can bet that he will want to show them that they should have forked over the fortune he demanded, so I wouldn't doubt at all that he has a massive game against his former squad. The same can be said for Josh Bell, who came over to San Diego in the same trade. These guys combined with Manny Machado gives the Padres one of the most ...
MLB Games Of The Day For Saturday, August 13
Despite Kansas City being a pretty bad team overall this season, they have been on a roll as of late. The offense still hasn't been that great, but they have shown signs of life after they traded away their best hitters in Andrew Benintendi and Whit Merrifield to the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays, respectively. What has been pushing them to be more competitive lately is their pitching, which has gotten so much better since the beginning of the season. Brad Keller gets the start for the Royals and he had a quality start his last time out, allowing one run on four hits and three walks...
How To Bet Risk-Free on Juan Soto's Return to D.C.
Juan Soto will make his glorious return to Washington, D.C., on Friday night when his new team, the Padres, will face the Nationals for a three-game series. Soto, of course, was traded to the Padres from the Nationals in the splash of the summer at the MLB trade deadline. Now he's back to face his former team and you can bet on how he'll do against them. If you want to get in on Soto to hit a home run, that is at +320 at BetMGM. Nationals RHP Cory Abbott will get the start, and he's 0-1 in five games (two starts) with a 5.68 ERA, so Soto could really do some damage against him. Not to men...
MLB Gas Can Alert For Friday, August 12
Houston Astros vs. Adam Oller (7.63 ERA), Oakland Athletics The Houston Astros are one of the best teams in baseball, and when they take on one of the worst teams in baseball like the Athletics, you can bet that we will have that game as one of the Gas Cans of the day. Houston just keeps rolling, years now removed from the cheating scandal that helped them win the World Series in 2017, but their offense hasn't missed a beat. They are one of the highest-scoring teams in baseball, and they have the pitching to boot that could propel them once again into the World Series. They are an insane 30 ...
MLB Games Of The Day For Friday, August 12
Here we go; this is easily the most anticipated matchup of the day. While the Mets are still way ahead of the Phillies in the standings, Philadelphia has been on a roll as of late, improving their record to 62-49. New York has been the best team in the division all year long, and catching up to them for the division crown seems very unlikely at this point. Especially when they have guys like Max Scherzer taking the hill for them. In his last start, Scherzer allowed four hits and struck out 11 across seven scoreless innings of work to earn the win in Game 2 of a doubleheader versus Atlanta. H...
How To Bet Risk-Free on Dylan Cease to Dominate
It's Dylan Cease Day, everybody. Mustaches up. Cease is 12-4 this season and 6-1 in his last seven starts with 166 strikeouts and a stellar 1.98 ERA. And this is a great opportunity to bet on him to continue his success against the Royals in this one. The over/under on Cease's strikeouts is 7.5. I do like the over on this total even though Cease has hit the under in his last three starts. When he went up against the Royals back in May, Cease hit the over with aplomb, racking up nine strikeouts in six innings, so keep that in mind.

2022 Field Of Dreams Game Best Bets: Cubs vs. Reds
After the White Sox beat the Yankees in a classic 9-8 battle in last year’s Field of Dreams Game, the Cubs and Reds have a whole lot to live up to on Thursday. Chicago and New York combined for a whopping eight home runs last summer, but will more offensive explosions occur in this matchup? Scroll down to find out which team the model projects to emerge from the corn stalks with a win and if we should expect a high-scoring or low-scoring total....
MLB Gas Can Alert For Thursday, Aug. 11
Boston Red Sox vs. Austin Voth (5.53 ERA), Baltimore Orioles The Red Sox are not having what we would call a great season in 2022. They started out hot, and looked like the team that was competing for a championship just last season. Then, they started to fall straight off a cliff, and have been painfully average at best during the second half of the season. The offense has struggled, but so has some of the pitching staff, and it has been a disappointing season following 2021. It could all change when they face Voth on Thursday, as for the season, he has struggled to keep his ERA below a poo...
MLB Games Of The Day For Thursday, August 11
Rangers vs. Astros is always an interesting matchup to me because it is the battle of Texas, and it really gets people riled up down there in the Lone Star state. While Houston has been far and away the more dominant team lately, Texas has been doing its best the last few seasons to rebuild their team. Corey Seager, Nathaniel Lowe and Adolis Garcia have been key players for the Rangers in 2022, and they are here to bridge the gap between being awful and competing for championships. They actually have been better than their record shows. with just a -3 run differential at the time of this wri...
