MLB Picks: June 1

By Stefan Luciani

Big slate of games today on this hot, hot Wednesday, But similar to like I’ve said before, sometimes, Vegas just doesn’t want to give you that nice of odds all around. Lucky for you I consider myself quite the connoisseur and find the little victories that can still bring you back a return because of course, we love making some money, right?

The Houston Astros currently sit first in the AL West and are back down in the west-coast playing Oakland. Now I know I’ve said before how much I’m a big Oakland kind of guy, but in this case, Houston 100% has the upper hand. Justin Verlander is on the bump for the ‘Stros and well, if you haven’t seen, he’s currently leading the AL Cy Young race right now. Guy may be getting up there in age, but he can sling a baseball pretty damn good still. Kevin Smith was expected back in the lineup for Tuesday's game, but remained absent which brings about more questions. I don’t see how Oakland can come out on top of this one. Pick: Astros -1.5 @ -120 (BetRivers)

Other Notable Games:

Phillies vs Giants O8 @ +100 (Caesars): I have taken both these teams to hit the over in the past, and they have yet to let me down. Will today be the day because I said that? Probably, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Over 8, book it.

Yankees -1.5 @ +115 (LeoVegas) vs Angels: This one should be pretty straight forward. I hate betting on the Yankees, I really do. But the fact is the return is nice, and they’re a really good baseball team that has been hitting the seams of the balls. They’re coming off a 9-1 win last night, and expect the offence to continue today.

One of betstamp’s largest brand values is transparency. Whether you are looking to tail or fade my picks, or potentially like reading the breakdowns, you can find my full documented betting record here.
