Rapid Fire MLB Predictions- May 3rd

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Los Angeles Dodgers

I was looking at today’s slate of MLB games trying to see if any particular team was providing good betting value. I tried searching for some information regarding predictions for each MLB game, but I couldn’t find anything substantial. Maybe I can be your go-to source for MLB predictions on a daily basis if this article goes well. Anyways, here are predictions for every MLB game (May 3rd). *Note- Home team in italics

Cleveland (-130) over Detroit

News broke today that Justin Verlander got engaged to Kate Upton. I doubt his head will be in the right place to face a pesky Indians team.

Chicago Cubs (-175) over Pittsburgh 

I kind of like Pittsburgh’s value at +160, but if you’re asking me who I think is going to win, I’ll take Jake Arrieta and the Cubs because obviously.

Baltimore (-115) over New York Yankees

I don’t like the matchup for Luis Severino against Baltimore’s 7th ranked offense according to Fangraphs.

Toronto (-185) over Texas

The Blue Jays aren’t playing as well as I expected them too, but I still like them at home over the Rangers.

Los Angeles Dodgers (+130) over Tampa Bay

This game is pretty much a pick ’em, but I’ll take the Dodgers considering they are underdogs.

Miami (+110) over Arizona

When and doubt, always take home underdogs. That’s a theory that applies in every sport.

Atlanta (+200) over New York Mets

In addition to a pedestrian start, Matt Harvey is dealing with some sort of illness. So I can’t bring myself to take the Mets at +230. Atlanta- fingers crossed.

Cincinnati (+120) over San Francisco

Rolling with another home underdog here, but I’m not too confident considering it’s the Reds.

Boston (+125) over Chicago White Sox

I just picked Steven Wright up on my fantasy team, so you know where I’m heading with this one.

Milwaukee (+120) over Los Angeles Angels

Corn dogs Jackie, corn dogs!

Minnesota (+140) over Houston

How long will it take for people to understand what the plexiglass principle is?

St. Louis (-170) over Philadelphia

Michael Wacha-Flaka Flame at home.

Kansas City (-120) over Washington

The Royals are the heavy public underdogs, so I suppose it’s always best to align myself with the House.

Oakland (-130) over Seattle

I took Sonny Gray and the A’s tonight in one of my parlays, so I might as well.

Colorado (+100) over San Diego

Yeah, I don’t really know either.
