Welcome to the Daily Dish, where we go through the MLB schedule for the day, giving you the starting pitcher matchups, and recent performance trends, and then listing some of our best bets if you choose to bet on the games. 

We had a cold middle of the week for our MLB bets and fell to just under .500 for the week, so we need to get the turnaround started today.

MLB Odds and Schedule, June 9

 

Arizona Diamondbacks (27-33) @ Cincinnati Reds (20-36), 12:35 p.m. ET

  • CIN Starting Pitcher: Tyler Mahle (2-5, 5.43 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, 9.65 K/9)
  • ARI Starting Pitcher: Zach Davies (2-3, 4.18 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, 6.91 K/9)
  • Last 10: CIN is 4-6 in their last 10 games. ARI is 4-6 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – O/U: CIN is 4-6-0 in their last 10 games. ARI is 3-7-0 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – Score: CIN averaged 5.3 runs scored in their last 10 games. ARI averaged 3.9 runs scored.
  • Last 10 – Runs Allowed: CIN allowed 5.3 runs on average in their last 10 games. ARI allowed 5 runs.
  • MLB Free Pick: 

 

St. Louis Cardinals (32-25) @ Tampa Bay Rays (33-23), 1:10 p.m. ET

  • TB Starting Pitcher: Shane McClanahan (6-2, 2.1 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 12.45 K/9)
  • STL Starting Pitcher: Miles Mikolas (4-3, 3.02 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 6.99 K/9)
  • Last 10: TB is 6-4 in their last 10 games. STL is 6-4 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – O/U: TB is 4-6-0 in their last 10 games. STL is 4-5-1 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – Score: TB averaged 4.4 runs scored in their last 10 games. STL averaged 5.1 runs scored.
  • Last 10 – Runs Allowed: TB allowed 3.5 runs on average in their last 10 games. STL allowed 4.7 runs.
  • MLB Free Pick: Pass
  • WHY?: There just doesn’t seem to be much value here. The Rays are -185 favorites on the moneyline because of McClanahan, but the Cardinals have been the better offense over the last couple of weeks. Our model actually has the Rays favored by just 0.06 runs, so it’s hard to put money on them to win at those odds. The model also has the total projected runs at 6.64, so it’s too close to the Vegas total for me to pick a side there as well.

Washington Nationals (21-36) @ Miami Marlins (23-30), 6:40 p.m. ET

  • MIA Starting Pitcher: Trevor Rogers (2-5, 5.80 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, 7.80 K/9)
  • WAS Starting Pitcher: Stephen Strasburg (1-2, 4.57 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 8.72 K/9 in 2021)
  • Last 10: MIA is 5-5 in their last 10 games. WSH is 4-6 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – O/U: MIA is 6-4-0 in their last 10 games. WSH is 6-4-0 in their last 10 games.
  • Last 10 – Score: MIA averaged 5.9 runs scored in their last 10 games. WSH averaged 3.8 runs scored.
  • Last 10 – Runs Allowed: MIA allowed 5.4 runs on average in their last 10 games. WSH allowed 7.2 runs.
  • MLB Free Pick: Pass
  • WHY?: We haven’t seen Stephen Strasburg pitch in an MLB game in over a year, so I have absolutely no idea what we’re going to get. The model likes the Marlins to win, and I do too, but it’s also entirely possible we get five innings of really good pitching out of Strasburg, and then I’m not sure where the game finds itself since Trevor Rogers has really been struggling. I’ll just pass until we see how good Strasburg looks against MLB hitters.
