Gilles Gallant's Best MLB Bets - August 24, 2019

MLB Best Bets August 24, 2019

Although today is the return of college football (BETTORS REJOICE!!!), there’s still plenty of value on the diamond. Instead of making you have to dig through baseball stats, I’ve written up some quick hitters for MLB bets I’ll be wagering on today.

If you want a more in-depth breakdown of tonight’s matchup between the Atlanta Braves vs New York Mets, check out my betting preview.

Here are my five favorite baseball bets for Saturday, August 24th:

White Sox-Rangers UNDER 9.5 (-115)

- Ivan Nova owns a 1.11 ERA over his last 6 starts (32.1 innings).

- Rangers’ offense is only hitting .224 with only 18 home runs vs RHP in the last 30 days. Both rank 27th in MLB in that span.

- Rangers and White Sox both rank in bottom five in total runs scored since all-star break.
