In our first MLB best bet for Tuesday, we like the Atlanta Braves to cover the runline as a favorite on the road. While laying runlines this heavily juiced may not be a play that yields long-term profitability, picking a spot like this one can certainly make it a profitable play. With the Braves entering this game with a gigantic edge on the mound, Atlanta should be able to run away with this game to help this ticket cash.

Spencer Strider is on the mound for the Braves in this game, as Atlanta looks to even this series after dropping the first game in extra innings yesterday. Strider is the favorite to win the NL Cy Young award this season, as he is 6-2 with a 3.79 ERA thus far. He leads the league in strikeouts from a pitcher this season, and he should have the upper hand against the Tigers from start to finish on Tuesday.

Atlanta’s offense should be more than capable of creating separation against the Tigers in this game as well. Atlanta ranks third in the majors in home runs this season, and fifth in the league in runs scored. Expect them to put a hurting on the Tigers in this contest to get even after the sizable upset that the Tigers pulled on the Braves yesterday.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Baltimore Orioles

My Pick: Over 9 (EVEN)

Next up, expect the game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles to go over the total on Tuesday night. Both of these teams are capable of scoring runs in bunches, and will likely need to do just that in order to win this matchup. With a couple of hittable pitchers on the mound, we should see both offenses continue to be among the best in baseball in this AL East showdown.

On the Toronto side, Chris Bassitt is on the hill, who is 7-4 with a 3.29 ERA. Baltimore, meanwhile, is sending Dean Kremer to the hill, with his 6-3 record and 4.89 ERA on the season. Both pitchers have allowed 12 home runs on the season, and are no strangers to allowing hard contact to their opponents, which we should see a decent amount of in this matchup as well.

Both the Blue Jays and the Orioles rank in the top-10 in baseball in runs scored this year, which will only help the cause of over-bettors. Neither team is particularly impressive in the power department this year, as the Blue Jays specialize in hitting for average while the Orioles offense is incredibly well-rounded. That will all help over bettors rejoice at the end of this contest.

Chicago White Sox vs Los Angeles Dodgers

Odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook

My Pick: Dodgers -1.5 (-105)

Our final best bet on the Tuesday MLB schedule is for the Los Angeles Dodgers to win and cover the runline against the Chicago White Sox. Los Angeles should be able to come out on top in this match thanks to the presence of Tony Gonsolin on the mound, who is 3-1 with a 2.21 ERA in his limited action so far this year. He has a huge advantage against Lance Lynn of the White Sox, who enters this game with a 4-6 record and a much less impressive 6.72 ERA.

Chicago has really struggled on the road so far this year, going just 12-21 away from the South side of Chicago. Los Angeles, meanwhile, has a winning record as a favorite so far this year, even with most of their games this season coming as a favorite. Look for the Dodgers to continue that trend and for them to beat up on the hapless White Sox to close out our MLB action for Tuesday.
