Welcome to another tremendous Tuesday of sports. A big MLB slate and day 2 of the tennis at Wimbledon are the main events today, so let’s get straight to making your next bet better!

About Last Night

Magnificent Monday of MLB picks!
We were made to wait for our baseball yesterday with no afternoon action, but the Pickswise picks made the delay worthwhile. Our handicappers went an awesome 8-1 on ML and RL plays on the 9-game slate, and 6-2-1 on the total over/under predictions, giving us a 14-3-1 day overall. We’ll take that every time!

The Dodgers were surprisingly the only team to let us down as they lost 4-0 to the Rockies, with Chad Kuhl pitching a 3-hit shutout.  The Angels beat the White Sox 4-3 as 9 players and coaches started suspensions for Sunday’s brawl with the Mariners.

Today’s Slate

16 MLB games today
We have a super-sized 16-game MLB slate today, with the Twins and Guardians playing a doubleheader. The first game is our only afternoon action and will be broadcast on ESPN+ at 1:10 pm ET. TBS is showing Astros vs Mets at 7:10 pm ET. Check out today’s MLB game previews.

Wimbledon in full swing
Our man Ricky Dimon is bringing you the best tennis coverage direct from Wimbledon this week, so be sure to check out today’s best bets for the grass-court Grand Slam event.

Best Bet of the Day

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates ML vs Washington Nationals
7:05 pm ET

Nationals starter Patrick Corbin is easy to fade. A 6.60 ERA and a 6.45 xERA are absurdly poor, and his batted-ball profile paints an even worse picture. Corbin ranks among the bottom 11% of qualified pitchers in average exit velocity allowed, xBA, xSLG, xwOBA, xERA and barrel rate. Pittsburgh’s  Jose Quintana has overperformed his metrics this season, pitching to a 3.60 ERA despite a 4.63 xERA but that’s nothing compared to how awful Quintana has been. The Pirates provide a lot of upside as underdogs facing the most fadeable pitcher in baseball. Read our full game preview for Pirates vs Nationals.
