Support the underdog Twins against the Padres in San Diego, plus other top bets for Friday

Happy Friday sports fans, the weekend has arrived and it’s a beautiful thing.

Soon we will have both NFL and college football dominating the weekend as well as baseball playoffs. There is nothing better than spending the entire weekend vegetating on the sofa and watching endless amounts of football and baseball. It’s less than a month to go until the 2022 college football season begins, so it will soon become a reality.

For now, we only have baseball to make money with. Let’s move on to the choices immediately!

🔥 The hot ticket

Twins in Padres, 21:40 | TV: MLB.TV

Latest odds:

Minnesota Twins +110

  • Key trend: The Twins are 8-3 in their last 11 games against a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30
  • The choice: twins (+100)

The Twins and the Padres are two very even teams that go down the stretch in the second half. However, baseball is a game all about throwing matches and Minnesota clearly have the edge in that department tonight.

Twins’ starting pitcher Joe Ryan put together a sensational rookie season, as he only recorded an ERA of 2.05 in his four starts during the month of July. Additionally, the Twins have won in 10 of his last 15 starts and Ryan hasn’t lost to the Mariners since June 14. Meanwhile, Padres owner Blake Snell wasn’t exactly the stellar pitcher the franchise foresaw him to be when he was acquired before the 2021 season.

Although he conceded a run or less in three of his last four starts, the southpaw struggled within the friendly confines of Petco Park. Snell has a 1-3 record to go along with an ERA of 4.67 in five home starts this season. Additionally, the Padres bullpen has an ERA of 3.91 and has also made 16 saves. The Twins offense are one of the most disciplined teams in baseball as they rank seventh in the batting average (.252), ninth in home runs (132), 10 in hits (837) and 10 in RBI (433). With all of this in mind, I am confident to ride with the underdog twins for more money.

💰 The choices



Cardinals at the Nationals, 19:10 | TV: MLB.TV

The choice: Cardinals (-170): After a brief two-game set in Toronto, the Cardinals are back in full swing with Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt in training. Combine this with the fact that the Cardinals are facing regular Anibal Sanchez and this should be an easy win.

Sanchez, 38, was recalled earlier this month after signing a minor league contract in the off-season. He has conceded seven earned points (6.30 ERA) in 10 innings from the start against Braves and Diamondbacks and is coming out of an outing where he gave up three points earned on six hits over five innings in a 5-2 defeat to the Diamondbacks. . With the Cardinals having one of the best bouts in baseball, I expect Sanchez’s fights to continue.

As if the Cardinals offense wasn’t reason enough to side with the favorite, they’re also sending right-hander veteran Miles Mikolas to the mound, who was fantastic in 2022. In the year, Mikolas has an ERA of 2 , 87 and really was an innings eater for St. Louis. In his last 10 starts, Mikolas has dropped two points or less in seven of those outings. There’s too much in favor of the Cardinals in this one, so you can rest easy betting a few units on the favorite.

Key trend: The Nationals are 16-47 in their last 63 games against a team with a record of victories

Rangers to the Angels, 21:38 | TV: MLB.TV
The choice: Martin Perez over 5.0 strikeout (-115) –
This looks like a dunk. The Angels are 15 games under .500 and lead the majors in the strikeouts (960) of the season.

Perez just came out of his first All-Star Game appearance of his career. The southpaw put together a record of 8-2 to match an ERA of 2.59 (ninth lowest in MLB). Perez has recorded at least six strikeouts in four of his last seven starts. In six of his last seven starts, Perez has pitched at least six innings, so he should easily be around long enough to hit the six strikeout count.

Key trend: Perez has recorded at least six strikeouts in four of his last seven starts
