Who’s ready to dive into some MLB Best Bets and Prop Bets for today? We enjoyed another strong day of betting in Monday’s MLB picks writeup and find ourselves on a little bit of a heater right now. 




That’s right, baby! We are back in the black! It’s only been a couple of days, so we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, but it is a great sign that the process is set, and we just needed to make a few minor tweaks in our approach. Betting the first five innings as opposed to the full game has been very good to us and with more data available, we are in a nice groove with betting on MLB props. 

MLB Best Bets & Prop Bets For Today: Tuesday, April 16 

We will continue to analyze the pitching in the same way and continue to maintain similar volume each day. That has been our bread and butter lately, so let’s keep at it and see what looks good for today’s MLB predictions for the action on the diamond.

  • Season Record: 48-39

Twins vs. Orioles Prediction Today, 4/16 

First up with today’s MLB picks, we are going right back to the well with ace Grayson Rodriguez on the bump against a Twins team that has the second-worst team wOBA (.274) against right-handed pitching and strikes out 27.8% of the time against them. 

Minnesota has dropped its last two games, they’re 3-7 over their last 10, and are sitting with a minus-10 run differential. They just lost Carlos Correa to the injured list and the team is struggling to put consistent hits together. 

On the other side, the Orioles lineup gets a look at Chris Paddack who looked respectable his last time out against the Dodgers but couldn’t get out of the fifth inning. The Orioles have been fierce against right-handed pitching, posting a .343 wOBA with a .211 ISO and should have no issues here. I expect their bats to take care of business nice and early. 




Angels vs. Rays Prediction Today, 4/16

Next up in my MLB predictions is a bit of an anomaly. I don’t often use a pitcher when he is facing the same team for two consecutive starts, but I’m a big fan of Civale and, outside of Mike Trout, there really aren’t a whole lot of threats in this lineup. 

Civale likes to pound the strike zone and challenge hitters, so while Trout might get the better of him, I think Civale can at least duplicate what he did the last time which was limit them to two runs on just four hits and one walk over five innings. Meanwhile, the Angels are throwing Jose Soriano who got slapped around for four runs on six hits (one home run) by these Rays in his last outing which also happened to be his first start of the season. 

He’s been working middle relief and that’s probably where he belongs, but the Halos are in need of a starter, and he’ll get the call. The Rays have been solid against righties this season and should be able to jump on Soriano fairly quickly. 




Giants vs. Marlins Prediction Today, 4/16 

Another game we’re going right back to today as the Marlins are just a team of disaster. They jumped out to an early lead on lefty Kyle Harrison, but the Giants bats worked their way back for the win. 

Jordan Hicks has looked great since opening the season as a starter and while we don’t know how many innings he’ll throw this season; we can relish in the fact that the Giants feel good about his arm and will let him throw 90 pitches in a game. The Fish are going to have their fins full. 

With Ryan Weathers on the mound for Miami, I’m happy to look at the Giants in the early part of the game. They have the fifth highest wOBA against southpaws this season (.348) and they don’t strike out. They’re unlikely to power up as they work their way through but will likely get it done with a barrage of hits. Not a huge value to win the full game or even the first five but enough for us to bet it and round out today’s MLB picks.
