MLB Best Bet Picks for Friday 09-29-23: Expert picks on a 35-19 Streak


Welcome to The Bet Club for our MLB Baseball report for 09-29-23. The MLB regular season is coming to a close but stay with us as we head to the post season play offs with the best bet schedule each day. One of the quickest bets you can place is whether a run will be scored in the first inning (YRFI) or not (NRFI). This market is one of the most popular and successful here at The Bet Club, as our baseball expert is currently on a scorching 35-19 run with these plays.


Let’s keep the momentum going and dive into Friday’s picks. But before we get started, make sure to check out our MLB picks for all of today’s matchups.

MLB Bet_Houston Astros vs Arizona Diamondbacks: NRFI (+102)

In the first pick of Friday’s card, we’re eyeing the NRFI in the matchup between the Houston Astros and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Zac Gallen, who will be making his final start before the playoffs, has shown great form recently, throwing 6 shutout innings in his last outing. He’ll be facing an Astros lineup that has been inconsistent all season, particularly against quality opponents. J.P. France, on the other hand, has been due for regression, and the Diamondbacks’ offense has been slow to start in 4 of their last 6 games. All signs point to a low-scoring start to this game, making the NRFI an appealing bet.

MLB Bet_Philadelphia Phillies vs New York Mets: YRFI (-110)

As the regular season nears its end, teams outside the playoff picture are coasting to the finish line, while playoff-bound teams are focused on staying healthy. Taijuan Walker, who will feature in the Phillies’ postseason rotation, hasn’t had a standout season, with underwhelming peripherals and advanced metrics (4.35 ERA, 4.49 xERA). Tylor Megill, starting for the Mets, recently gave up a first-inning run against the Phillies. Although the Phillies’ offense might not be firing on all cylinders, they managed to score 22 runs in 4 games against the Mets last week. This sets the stage for a YRFI bet in this matchup.

Top MLB Player Prop Bets for Today, 9/29: Carlos Rodon Shines in Final Outing

As we approach October, the MLB regular season is winding down, with some teams still in the hunt while others are preparing to close the book on 2023. One standout player prop bet for today is Carlos Rodon, the left-handed pitcher for the New York Yankees. Despite a challenging season, there’s value in his performance.

MLB Bet_Carlos Rodon (Yankees) Under 3.5 Earned Runs (-140)

Carlos Rodon’s first season with the Yankees didn’t go as planned due to health concerns, causing him to debut on July 7. When he did take the mound, his performance left much to be desired, with metrics like xERA ranking in the 24th percentile and high average exit velocity given up. However, in his final start of the season against the Kansas City Royals, Rodon has an opportunity to finish on a high note.

This start holds great importance for Rodon, as he’s set to remain with the Yankees for the foreseeable future. A strong outing here can give him something positive to build on for the 2024 season. The Royals, who have the fourth-highest strikeout rate against left-handed pitchers this month, provide a favorable matchup. Rodon has shown improvement in recent starts, accumulating whiffs and holding his opponents to under 4 runs. Betting on the under for Rodon’s earned runs seems like a wise choice.

MLB Bet_JP France (Astros) Under 16.5 Outs (-120)

One of the most crucial games on the slate features the Arizona Diamondbacks hosting the Houston Astros. Both teams are fighting for wild-card spots, adding intensity to the matchup. Zac Gallen, an ace for the Diamondbacks, will start, while the Astros will rely on JP France, who might not have a long leash.

JP France’s advanced metrics don’t paint a pretty picture, with rankings in the bottom 20 percentile for xERA, xBA, and strikeout rate. He has struggled with walks recently, issuing at least 3 walks in 3 of his last 4 starts. If France starts slow, manager Dusty Baker may not hesitate to turn to the bullpen early. With so much at stake, especially for the Astros, who hold a slim lead for the final wild-card spot, France’s performance under 16.5 outs is an intriguing bet.

MLB Friday Picks and Parlay +993: Crunch Time for Contenders

As the regular season enters its final weekend, the race for division titles and wild-card spots is heating up. There’s no shortage of drama, and some teams are already playing playoff-style baseball to secure their spots. Here’s a mega parlay with enticing +993 odds for Friday’s MLB action.

Phillies -1.5 (+140)

Reds -1.5 (+130)

Astros vs Diamondbacks Under 8.5 (-102)

MLB Bet_Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 over New York Mets (+140)

The Phillies are in excellent form, winning 7 of their last 9 games, reminiscent of their late-season surge from the previous year. While the Phillies have already secured a playoff spot, they understand the importance of peaking before the postseason. Facing a struggling Mets team that has lost 5 of their last 6 games, the Phillies are poised to stay hot and secure a convincing win.

MLB Bet_Cincinnati Reds -1.5 over St. Louis Cardinals (+130)

The Cardinals, like the Mets, have had a disappointing season and are limping to the regular season’s finish line. In contrast, the Reds are just 1.5 games out of a wild-card spot and need a strong finish. They are the better team in this matchup and will play with a sense of urgency to keep their playoff hopes alive. Expect the Reds to put up runs against a struggling St. Louis team.

MLB Bet_Astros vs Diamondbacks Under 8.5 (-102)

With both the Astros and Diamondbacks fighting for wild-card spots, this series has a playoff feel. High stakes often lead to more conservative play to avoid costly mistakes. The starting pitching matchup, featuring Zac Gallen and J.P. France, adds further appeal to the under. These quality pitchers in a high-leverage situation should keep the run total low. Betting on the under looks like a wise choice for this matchup.
