MLB Picks: June 29

By Rally Kapz

Great day for a ballgame…so let’s play 15! Yes, all 30 MLB teams are in action today, including 8 afternoon games. I love summer time!  So, let’s get to it.

If you love baseball, and love a good AL East battle, then last night’s game between the Blue Jays and Red Sox did not disappoint. With ongoing COVID protocol, all visiting players coming into Toronto are required to be vaccinated. This had a HUGE impact on last night’s game, as Red Sox closer Tanner Houck is unvaccinated, so was not available to close out what was a 5-4 Boston lead heading into the ninth. The end result was a 6-5 Jays victory and the Boston sports media were less than impressed to say the least. So, while it's just one regular season game, ESPN’s Buster Olney was quick to tweet out that “If the playoffs started today, Red Sox would face Blue Jays. In Toronto.”  HUGE.

Today, we get Alek Manoah for the Blue Jays vs. Nick Pivetta for Boston. Both are pitching well but I’ll lean Manoah on this one. However, even if Manoah is able to go 7 innings, I don’t trust the bullpen, so picking a winner here is fraught with peril. Instead, with Manoah pitching, I like the Jays to have a lead after the first five innings, so that’s the play for me today.

Pick:  Toronto Blue Jays -0.5 (5 innings) -110 (PowerPlay) vs. Boston Red Sox

If you’re looking for a little extra fun, bet365 has a bet boost on what I think is an interesting little same game parlay.  It looks like this…Vladdy gets a hit, Manoah strikes out six, Manoah gets the win. I like it.

Pick:  Same Game Parlay – Guerrero Jr. over 0.5 hits; Manoah over 5.5 strikeouts; Manoah winning pitcher of record +450 (bet365)

Other games worth betting today:

The Yankees and A’s played a rather tight game last night, a 2-1 Yankees win.  The Yankees pitch well, bat well, play good baseball. The A’s? Not so much. I don’t think this one will be as close. I like the Yankees on the runline.

Pick:  New York Yankees -1.5 -125 (theScore Bet) vs. Oakland A’s

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