Gilles Gallant joins Ninja on today’s episode of Guys & Bets as we slide into the weekend with a Friday jam-packed with sports betting content!
In Major League Baseball, the Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants are playing the second game of a four-game series and Ninja has a moneyline bet lined up. The Giants took the opener 3-0 with all of their runs coming in the first inning. The Marlins trot out Sandy Alcantara to take the mound and his counterpart will be Alex Wood. After coming out of the gates slow at 1-6, the Marlins have saved themselves by going 7-4 since. Alcantara went 6.1 innings while striking out seven batters last week against the Giants as the Marlins took that game 7-6 in extra innings.
Over to the Premier League now as Ninja has found a nice little plus-money bet as Wolves host Burnley. Wolves have won their last two Premier League matches, posting clean sheets against Fulham and Sheffield United. Burnley isn’t the most talented team offensively and they don’t play a strong attacking style. The Clarets have dropped their last three Premier League games while allowing eight goals in the process.
Gilles has a bet on the sexy game of the day as the San Diego Padres are in L.A. to take on the Dodgers. We’re looking at two of the best offenses in baseball as each team boasts bats that bang the ball all over the field. Fernando Tatis Jr. has been off to a shaky start but there’s a lot of pressure on the guy who some deemed to be the new face of MLB. At some point, he’s going to turn it around and tonight might be the night.
The Seattle Mariners are in Fenway Park to square off with the Boston Red Sox in the second of a four-game set. The M’s only managed three hits Thursday but they made them count. Mitch Haniger smacked a three-run home run in the top of the 10th to seal the deal and get the 7-3 win. Both of these teams are off to a bit of a surprising start. There wasn’t a lot of fanfare regarding their hopes for the season, but that’s baseball. Gilles is picking a side for his moneyline bet.
We have an Eastern Conference clash in the NBA tonight as the surging Boston Celtics hit the road to take on the banged-up Brooklyn Nets. April has been a good month for the Celtics as they’ve gone 9-2, with wins over Portland and Denver among those nine. The Nets will be without James Harden while Kevin Durant is a game-time decision with his thigh injury.
