Cash with Flash Best Bets is back for another day of MLB sports betting news, stats, trends and of course, the picks. We’ll continue to freely offer these MLB picks for the foreseeable future and look forward to you joining the site and eventually subscribing to our paid service.
Cash with Flash Best Bets went 2-3 yesterday with our MLB picks and is now 5-6 on the season. Fortunately, both victories yesterday were of the underdog variety which allows us to boast a small profit.
Sports betting, and especially MLB betting, is a marathon and not a sprint.
Home and road teams have an equal 23-23 record and it appears the piped-in music and cut-outs of fans in the stands aren’t inspiring the home sides very much.
Cash with Flash Best Bets hit two underdogs yesterday and underdogs went 8-6 on the day with a robust seasonal record of 26-19 this season.
The Miami Marlins are reporting that at least four players have tested positive for COVID-19. This isn’t a good thing at all. It didn’t prevent Miami from beating Philadelphia but it could be the beginning of the end for the 2020 MLB season.
Don’t forget to pick up a copy of my book “Betting Baseball 101: Winning at the Sports Books and Daily Fantasy Sports” at Amazon and learn the secrets behind our success at picking underdogs.
Atlanta Braves (+140) vs Tampa Bay Rays (-140)
Total: 8.5 Runs, OVER (-105), UNDER (-115)
These are two of the hottest teams in baseball and each club enters this two-game series riding two-game winning streaks. The Braves arrived late in Tampa Bay after winning a HUGE road series against the New York Mets. Tampa Bay reeled off two straight wins over the Toronto Blue Jays to win their first season series of 2020.
Righty Mike Foltynewicz takes the hill for the Braves and he’s coming off an 8-6 season with a 4.25 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 117 strikeouts last season. He also struck out 105 hitters while walking 37 along with 23 bombs allowed in 2020.
Tyler Glasnow takes the hill for Tampa Bay and he’s returning from an injury-riddled season where he went 6-1 with a 1.71 ERA alongside a 0.80 WHIP over just 60.2 innings pitched. Glasnow whiffed 76 hitters, walked just 14 and opponents took him deep just four times last season.
Prediction: Cash with the Flash Best Bets suggests taking the Braves to win this game. This is a great price for a big-hitting team with one of the most underrated starting pitchers in the game of baseball. I like Glasnow but I don’t think the Rays bats will be able to push enough runs past Foltynewicz. The Atlanta bats are hot and these fellas are going to be finding the large gaps available inside the Tropicana Field dome.
