Pickswise was nice enough to give me the opportunity to write up my plays for you all. For those of you who don’t know me, they refer to me as JutPicks on Twitter. I post all my plays with brief writeups every day. Now I get to write even more with no character limit!
I pride myself on being as transparent as they come. My MLB record from last season and this season is listed in my bio. On the year, I’ve recorded 163 wins and 122 losses for a gain of +26.83 units. Without further ado, let’s dive into my favorite play for Wednesday.

Logan Gilbert (SEA) under 2.5 earned runs (-130)
Line available at DraftKings Sportsbook at time of publishing.
Logan Gilbert and his 3.12 road ERA face off against the 43-77 Oakland Athletics tonight. We’ve seen Gilbert struggle as of late. In his last 3 starts, he’s allowed a combined 16 earned runs in 15 innings pitched. He’s got a great opportunity to bounce back tonight against the woeful Athletics.
In the last month, the Athletics are hitting under .230 against right-handed pitching and opposing starting pitchers have held them to under 3 runs in 8 of their last 10 games.
Gilbert is one of the leagues brightest stars and I fully expect him to find his form again. He’s been under this line in 13 of 24 starts and 8 of 14 on the road.
