My MLB picks have been on fire to start the season. Last Thursday we went 2-0 and moved the overall record to 13-6-1 so after almost a week off, let’s get back at it. I perused Fanduel Sportsbook and found a HR number too good to pass on, along with couple of starters who’ve struggled early in starts. Here are two of my MLB Best Bets for this Wednesday, May 11th.
MLB Best Bets – Wednesday, May 11th
C.J. Cron HR +610
Cron is tied for 2nd in MLB with 9 HR so far this season. He hasn’t hit a dinger in a season long seven games so he’s fairly due. C.J. has a plus matchup today against Giants starter Alex Cobb. Cobb has allowed 13 runs in hit 15 innings on the mound this season. And, Cron has hit 3 HR in just 16 career ABs against the San Fran righty.
Astros at Twins 1st Half (F5) – Over 4.5 runs -104
Both of the starters in this game have struggled early in starts this year. Twins starter Chris Archer hasn’t gone more than 4.1 innings but has allowed 2 runs in three of his last four starts. He has also given up 5 HR in that stretch of 15.1 total innings. Astros starter Jose Urquidy hadn’t gone more than 5 innings prior to his last start against Detroit and he’s allowed 13 runs in his first 19.1 innings of 2022. I expect both offenses to get rolling early here.
