Best MLB Bets For Tuesday, April 4th
We’ve got ourselves a late slate of games on Tuesday, which gives us even more time to lock in our MLB bets. From World Series Futures to Rookie of the Year winners, we’ve got you covered here at OddsSeeker. So, here are some daily bets that you can take a look at for tomorrow, April 4th.
Best Bet #1: St. Louis Cardinals over Atlanta Braves (-135)
We’re starting off with something a bit more digestible here, as the Cardinals come into this one as a pretty heavy favorite (in baseball standards). The birds will be sending out Steven Matz in tomorrow's game, who holds a 6-3 lifetime record against the Braves, with a 3.42 ERA and 72 strikeouts.
The Braves, on the other hand, will be sending out prospect Dylan Dodd, who will be making his MLB debut.
This is meant as no slight to Dodd, but facing off against the Cardinals in St Louis is no easy feat. The Cardinals are averaging seven runs per game so far this season, and they did all that in a series against the Blue Jays, who have one of the best pitching staffs in the MLB.
I think the Cardinals will continue to swing the hot stick and grab the win against the Braves.
Best Bet #2: Baltimore Orioles over Texas Rangers (+120)
Speaking of red-hot offenses, the Texas Rangers are scorching right now. They’ve tallied double-digit runs in two of their first three games and currently hold a perfect 3-0 record. That may change due to the first game of the series tonight, April 3rd, but the point stands–the Rangers are on fire right now.
That said, the Orioles are playing just as well offensively–it’s just their pitching that has been betraying them. The Orioles scored 23 runs across their first three games, but gave up 27 runs to the Red Sox in the same stretch. I think the Orioles will find their pitching groove in this series against the Rangers, and I think they’ll grab the win on Tuesday night.
Best Bet #3: Colorado Rockies +1.5 vs Los Angeles Dodgers (+100)
These are some pretty good odds for a run-line bet, so I’ll pounce all over it. The Rockies will be sending out German Marquez who had a great spring and a decent debut, going six innings, striking out five, and allowing two earned runs.
In Marquez’s last start against the Dodgers, he struck out eight in six innings, allowing only one run. Julio Urias, the Dodgers projected start tomorrow, has started against the Rockies 16 times and has given up at least a run in all 16 of those outings.
I’m not saying the Rockies will win, but I think they’ll keep it close.
Best Bet #4: Chicago Cubs over Cincinnati Reds (-130)
Cubs prospect Hayden Wesneski is making his much anticipated season debut tomorrow, and I think he’ll be celebrating a win after his first start of the year. Wesneski started only four games in 2022 but made the most of his short amount of time–he went 2-1, striking 22 hitters, carrying a 1.85 ERA.
He has a pretty favorable matchup as well taking on the Reds, who don’t have the most potent of offenses. If there’s any downside to this bet, it’s that Wesneski faced off against the Reds in October of 2022 and took a loss–however, on the bright side of things, he went 6 innings with 6 strikeouts, allowing only one run in the game.
