Good morning, Pickswise Nation! Today’s sports slate gets started early, with afternoon action beginning at 1:10 pm ET. The MLB slate is the main source of entertainment, so let’s get straight to making your next bet better!

About Last Night

YRFI/NRFI best bets stay hot
The Pickswise MLB team had a fine day on Tuesday, especially in the ever-popular YRFI/NRFI market. Our expert cashed both of his plays for a 2-0 day, meaning we’ve now won 7 of our last 8 picks and extending our run to 42-20 in our last 62 plays!

Today’s Slate

Full slate of MLB games
We’ve got another huge 15 MLB games today. Baseball will be on all day, with the Mets-Reds contest getting the day started at 1:10 pm ET. There are many good games in store on Wednesday night, such as Twins-Dodgers and Yankees-Mariners. You can read our previews for all today’s MLB games here.

Best Bets of the Day

MLB: Over 9 in Toronto Blue Jays vs Baltimore Orioles
7:05 pm ET

The Baltimore Orioles are one of the hottest teams in baseball, and they’ll get to face Jose Berrios on Wednesday. If Baltimore is going to complete the sweep of Toronto, they’ll likely do so in high-scoring fashion. That’s been a theme in Baltimore this season, as the Orioles have taken advantage of their hitter-friendly ballpark all year. This should continue against Berrios and his 5.19 ERA. The last time Berrios faced the Orioles lineup, the game finished with 13 total runs and we could be in for a similar result. That’s certainly not to discount the Blue Jays lineup, as Toronto has scored the 2nd-most runs in the American League. Check out our full Blue Jays vs Orioles preview.

Must-watch

Don’t forget to check out our daily show Let’s Bet It! on our YouTube channel atyoutube.com/c/Pickswise at 10:00 am ET.
