Expert MLB Best Bets, Picks, and Predictions for Today – September 22nd: Tigers Shine Bright


The MLB regular season is rapidly nearing its conclusion, with next Sunday marking the final day of the regular schedule. For squads like the Blue Jays, Mariners, and Rangers, this week is filled with pressure and playoff implications. Conversely, teams such as the Guardians and Athletics are merely counting down the days until the season’s end. In today’s best bets column, I’m setting my sights on both the Guardians and A’s. Let’s delve into my MLB best bets for Friday, and don’t forget to peruse our MLB predictions for today.

Best MLB Bets Today

MLB Best Bet of the Day: Arizona Diamondbacks ML over New York Yankees (+108) Game Time: 7:05 pm ET

On Friday night, the Arizona Diamondbacks visit the Bronx. The Yankees, now out of playoff contention, are merely going through the motions. In contrast, the Diamondbacks have climbed into wild-card contention and appear to be a solid bet at plus odds. Rookie Brandon Pfaadt, who recently pitched 5.1 scoreless innings against the Cubs, will take the mound for Arizona. The Yankees counter with Luke Weaver, whose effectiveness has waned in recent years. If Pfaadt can hold his own for a few innings, Arizona should have control over this game.

Best MLB Bet: Baltimore Orioles ML over Cleveland Guardians (+100)

Shane Bieber is set to return to the mound with just over a week left in the regular season. His return is somewhat surprising given his 60-day injured list stint earlier in the season. However, Bieber’s motivation to secure a better contract next season drives him to make another start or two. Facing the Orioles, who are still vying for the AL East title, Bieber will be under pressure to perform. Baltimore clinched a playoff berth a few days ago but is still chasing the division title. In their previous encounter this season, Bieber struggled against the Orioles, allowing 7 runs and 8 hits in just 4 innings.

An unsung hero for the Orioles this season has been Dean Kremer, who has significantly improved his performance in the last two months. Kremer’s primary pitches, the fastball and cutter, have been effective against a struggling Guardians team that ranks poorly against those pitch types since August 1. With a few more wins, Baltimore could secure its first AL East title since 2014.

Best MLB Bet: Detroit Tigers ML over Oakland Athletics (-135)

The Athletics are eagerly anticipating the end of their historically dismal season, counting down the days until it’s over. With a record of 46-107, there isn’t much to celebrate in Oakland this year. Ken Waldichuk takes the mound for the A’s, but his season has been marked by control issues, with an 11.5% walk rate. The Tigers, on the other hand, excel against left-handed pitchers, with the 5th highest walk rate since August 1 and strong rankings in on-base percentage, OPS, and wRC+.

Sawyer Gipson-Long, a rising talent for the Tigers, has shown promise in his recent MLB appearances. His slider and changeup have proven effective, and the Athletics have struggled against both pitches since August 1. Detroit, currently on a hot streak, looks poised to secure another win against an A’s team that has lost 8 consecutive games.

Best MLB Player Prop Bet: Expert Bets are Hot at 10-0

Our MLB player prop page has been on an incredible 10-0 winning streak. Tonight, we aim to extend that streak further. Leading the way is NL ROY favorite Corbin Carroll, and you can also check out our predictions for every MLB matchup.

Corbin Carroll (ARZ) over 1.5 Hits+Runs+RBIs (-110)

Corbin Carroll, the NL Rookie of the Year favorite, makes his debut at Yankee Stadium with a 6-game hit streak. Facing RHP Luke Weaver, who has struggled against him in the past, Carroll is in a prime spot to perform well. Carroll has been seeing the ball exceptionally well, particularly against right-handed pitchers, with a .340 batting average in September and eight stolen bases against RHP. With Weaver’s subpar metrics, Carroll’s odds of hitting this prop are strong.

MLB YRFI & NRFI Best Bet Picks

MLB Pick_Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals: YRFI (-120)

The Atlanta Braves’ potent lineup has been unstoppable this season, particularly in the first inning, where they have scored 137 runs in 153 games. With Patrick Corbin on the mound for the Nationals, the Braves are poised to jump to an early lead. Corbin’s struggles this season suggest that the Braves could capitalize on their first-inning scoring trend. However, the Nationals could also pose a challenge for Charlie Morton, making the first inning over a tempting bet.

MLB Pick_Detroit Tigers vs. Oakland Athletics: NRFI (-138)

In a matchup featuring two below-average lineups, the Detroit Tigers and Oakland A’s, both struggling to score runs, could likely see a scoreless first inning. Tigers’ starter Sawyer Gipson-Long has been impressive in his limited MLB experience, allowing just 3 earned runs in 10 innings with 11 strikeouts in his last outing. Oakland’s Ken Waldichuk has improved in the second half of the season but still possesses lackluster overall statistics. Betting on a scoreless first inning in Oakland seems like a solid choice.
