Last night was a great start to the week after we hit the Rangers as +220 money line outright winner against Chris Sale and the Red Sox and the Rays came through as comfortable winners against the run line against the A’s. We struggled a bit last week on a few underdog picks, but hitting longshot winners like the Rangers last night puts us right back on track with our MLB bets. Trust the process!
Tonight, we will be going back to one of our favorite teams to bet on this season in the White Sox, as they host the red-hot Nationals. We’ll also be going right back to the Rays in the second game of their series against the A’s.

Washington Nationals at Chicago White Sox
Starting Pitchers: Patrick Corbin vs. Manny Banuelos
Money Line: WAS -200, CHW +170
Run Line: WAS -1.5 (-120), CHW +1.5 (+100)
Total: O/U 9.5 Runs
The White Sox have been one of the most profitable teams to bet on as underdogs this season, and tonight we are presented a golden opportunity to bet them as sizable +170 home underdogs against the Nationals. The books have consistently undervalued the White Sox this season, which is partly why they have been profitable at a +6.35 unit clip this season on a one-unit-per-game bet.
While the Nationals will have a clear starting pitching advantage with Patrick Corbin on the mound against Manny Banuelos, you can’t tell me that they should be favored at -200 on the road against a team with a similar winning percentage on the season. The Nationals and White Sox have faced off three times in the past week with Washington taking all three games, so that could be another reason for this overvalued line, but it’s important to remember that Washington is just a putrid 13-17 overall on the road this season. The BetQL models have this game handicapped as CHW +108, and we will be taking a shot on them and the 60-plus points of value in this spot despite the trends pointing toward the Nats.
BetQL Pick: Chicago White Sox Money Line (+170)

Oakland A’s at Tampa Bay Rays
Starting Pitchers: Mike Fiers vs. Ryne Stanek (followed by Jalen Beeks)
Money Line: Oak +140, TB -165
Run Line: OAK +1.5 (-145), TB -1.5 (+125)
Total: O/U 9 Runs
The Rays came through as comfortable 6-2 winners last night behind both the bat and glove of Kevin Kiermaier. Tampa has been playing great baseball all season, especially lately, going a 5-0 SU and ATS over its past five games and outscoring opponents 32-9 in that span. Rays opener Ryne Stanek has been excellent on their bullpen days, and the Rays are a spectacular 17-3 against the spread over the past two years in home games in which Stanek starts. The BetQL models have handicapped the Rays Run Line of +125 as the highest valued bet on the slate, listing it as the only four-star value of the night. Keep riding the Rays to winning tickets.
BetQL Pick: Tampa Bay Rays Run Line (+125)
