Happy middle of the week to you fellow working class sports bettors! It was a rough Monday on the MLB Best Bets as they got rocked, but hey these things will happen over the course of the season and the process was correct so no need to panic. In fact I am going back to the Cubs today after they spurned me because the numbers still look great and I am feeling confident that they light it up tonight. In addition to them we have a Money Line, pitcher prop and a player prop! I very much support all four of these bets and hopefully by the end of the night they make us all some cheddar, good luck!

MLB Best Bets for September 13

Cleveland Guardians at San Francisco Giants

After spending much of September sliding down the standings the Giants are finally back to winning games as they have taken 4 of the last 5 games in their homestand and tonight they finish their series with Cleveland. The Guardians have seen better days as they traded some key players at the deadline and have been one of the lowest scoring teams in the MLB all season long at just 4.01 runs per game. That has me on the Giants side of the wagers for tonight, at least as far as the Money Line goes. The Giants are in must win mode every game at this point and they are 42-32 at home this season, I like their chances today. I will hit a prop against these Giants though as they love to strikeout and do so in bunches most night. Logan Allen will be starting for the Guardians with his 3.68 which is just fine but I like the fact that his K number is just 4.5 in this game. The Giants strikeout 9.28 times per game this season so if that average even holds close to true this number should go over easily. 

Pick: San Francisco Giants Money Line (-135 on BetRivers)

Pick: Logan Allen Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-130 on DraftKings)

Chicago Cubs at Colorado Rockies

It's another edition of the MLB best bets so you know I always begin my research fading a lot of the same teams and one of those teams continues to be the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies are one of the worst teams in the league and the pitching has been a large reason why. Enter Ty Blach who could be walking into a tough one today with his 4.58 ERA which has been even worse over the last 2 starts where he has allowed 9 runs in 11 innings of pitching. If that wasn't enough his opponent in the Cubs hit lefties very well especially Cody Bellinger. The Cubs offense enters tonight the 7th highest scoring team in the league at 5.03 runs per game but that number tonight is expected to inflate given the elevation. I do think they top it but it may be close but I won't bet an under on this team, especially because they have been held in relative check the first 2 games of this series. Then there's a player prop to add in Bellinger as he is crushing lefties this season hitting .347 with a massive OPS of 1.003. It hasn't been the greatest series for him to this point but with a player this hot its only a matter of time, he may even go yard tonight! That's always a tough bet to hit though so let's just sit on his hits, runs and RBIs prop of 

Pick: Chicago Cubs Team Total Over 6.5 Runs (-120 on Bet365)

Pick: Cody Bellinger Over 2.5 Hits/Runs/RBIs (-105 on DraftKings)
