Wise n' Shine: What you need to know to bet better on Saturday, July 23

Wise n’ Shine, Pickswise Nation! The MLB is back into fill swing, the PLL is back, and we have a hefty slate of MLS games today to get excited for. Let’s get right into making your next bet better.

About Last Night

Blue Jays make history in Boston
The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Boston Red Sox 28-5 last night, marking the biggest victory margin of the season. 28 runs is the most runs the Red Sox have allowed in franchise history, and they have now been outscored 55-8 in their last 3 games. Not exactly the way they wanted to start their second half of the season to say the least. We also extended our NRFI/YRFI streak to 21-5 in our last 26 bets, so you won’t want to miss today’s NRFI/YRFI bets.

Best Bet of the Day

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals ML over Cincinnati Reds
6:40 pm ET

Not only is Mike Minor struggling, but he’s also a lefty. Nolan Arenado and the Cards have been smashing lefties this season. They’re a top-10 lineup against such pitching and put it on display against some of the best southpaws in baseball. St. Louis lit up Giants ace Carlos Rodon for 8 runs in just 3.2 innings earlier this season in the nationally televised Sunday Night Baseball game. Minor has avoided the Cards this season, but he’s allowed 9 runs across his last 2 starts. One of those came against a weak Pirates lineup. Saturday shapes up nicely for the Cardinals to give Minor his 7th loss in 9 starts. Check out our full preview for Cardinals vs Reds
