MLB Betting: Sunday Best Bets

This article is part of our MLB Betting series.

Previous: 3-1, +1.32 RWBucks

Overall: 117-90-1, +12.97 RWBucks

Astros vs. Angels, 2:10 p.m. EDT

Lance McCullers vs. Jaime Barria

You can see a theme Sunday as I am doubling up on two games with correlation plays. McCullers is a massive home favorite at -294, so again we look at the run line. In his last 13 starts, he has hit at least seven strikeouts in 11. This is also a huge play against the Angels, whom I have been doing for a few weeks now. They have been hovering at a steady 25 percent strikeout rate, 28 percent against right-handed pitchers the last three weeks.  

BET: McCullers over 7.5 strikeouts (-118 BetMGM) for 1 RWBuck

BET: Astros -1.5 (-140 FanDuel) for 1 RWBuck

Giants at Cubs, 2:20 p.m. EDT

Logan Webb vs. Justin Steele

Webb has been one of best pitchers in baseball the last two months and I have been riding him a lot during that stretch. He is a huge road favorite at -220, so we look to get value on the run line. Also, the 6.5 strikeout prop is attractive as he has hit at least six strikeouts in his last seven starts. Over his last seven starts, Webb has thrown 46.1 innings, with 54 strikeouts, seven walks, 1.55 ERA and 0.93 WHIP.  The Cubs are striking out 28-31 percent the last two weeks both home/road. 

BET: Giants -1.5 (-135 BetMGM) for 1 RWBuck

BET: Webb over 6.5 strikeouts (+110 DraftKings) for 1 RWBuck
