Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals (ML: -190) – O/U: 8
Betting Pick: Over 8 (-106)
Time: Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 – 7:05 p.m. EST
PHI: Aaron Nola – R (12-6, 3.75 ERA/1.26 WHIP)
WSH: Max Scherzer – R (10-7, 2.81 ERA/1.03 WHIP)
Tuesday night’s MLB schedule has some intriguing matchups on it which makes for profitable betting opportunities, but our top betting pick is the total going over eight runs in the Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals game. Let’s five into the facts and figures below, to learn why this is our best betting tip.
Betting Lines Analysis: Phillies at Nationals
The Nationals opened as -170 favorites but have increased quite a bit to -190 as 73 percent of public bets are on them to win. In addition, 59 percent of total money wagered is coming in on the under, while the public bets are split right down the middle.
Phillies Betting Form
Just as Aaron Nola has faltered down the stretch, the Phillies’ season has gone right down the tubes along with him. The right-hander has now allowed a total of 15 runs over his last 22 innings of work. Not to mention, Nola has gotten ripped by the Nationals all season, allowing a 6.46 ERA and 12 runs (11 earned) in 15 1/3 innings of work.
Nationals Betting Form
Max Scherzer hasn’t been at his best lately, either allowing too many runs or not going long enough into games. In comparison to Nola’s marks, Scherzer has allowed 13 runs over his last 23 2/3 innings of work. Against the Phils this season, the electric right-hander has great numbers, but we should take his current form more into consideration here.
Betting Pick: Over 8 (-106)
While we do have two of the biggest names in MLB on the mound, they’re just not performing up to their standards. Both teams’ bullpens have also struggled quite a bit over the last few games, and that won’t help matters much. The Phillies have no need to overwork Nola and the Nationals want to keep Scherzer healthy for a possibly-deep playoff run.
Most sportsbooks will have the same number of total runs (8) on this matchup, but you can get solid -106 odds on that number at FanDuel Sportsbook.

St. Louis Cardinals (ML: -200) at Arizona Diamondbacks – O/U: 8.5
Betting Pick: Cardinals (1.5 run line) -124
Time: Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 – 9:40 p.m. EST
Tuesday night’s MLB schedule has some profitable matchups on it which makes for plenty of betting opportunities, but one of our top picks is the St. Louis Cardinals covering the run-line against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Let’s five into the facts and figures below, to learn why this is our best betting tip.
STL: Jack Flaherty – R (10-8, 2.96 ERA/1.01 WHIP)
ARZ: Mike Leake – R (3-3, 4.67 ERA/1.29 WHIP)
Betting Lines Analysis: Cardinals at Diamondbacks
It was quite shocking to see this – the Cardinals have taken in 76 percent of public bets so far, but only nine percent of money wagered. While this is an early figure, we’ll certainly have to watch out for this as the day moves forward. In addition, 57 percent of public bets/49 percent of money wagered is on the under.
Cardinals Betting Form
Jack Flaherty has been simply dominant since the All-Star break, going 6-2 with a 1.05 ERA in 13 starts and notching 107 strikeouts in 85 1/3 innings. He’ll take that dominant stuff into Tuesday’s matchup, as the Cardinals look to close in on clinching the NL Central division. St. Louis has really turned it up a notch over the second half of the season, and Flaherty has a lot to do with that.
As for the Cards’ offense, tonight’s matchup against the D-Backs’ right-hander is one that should have them salivating. St. Louis has scored at least nine runs in two of its last three games, so look for tonight to be yet another big offensive night.
Diamondbacks Betting Form
Mike Leake is the aforementioned right-hander we were speaking of. While he’s gotten himself out of jams against lesser teams, this Cardinals’ lineup is certainly not one that you want to test with plenty of runners on the basepaths.
The D-Backs were eliminated from playoff contention with last night’s loss, making it that much tougher to come to the ballpark today. Look for them to play one of their most flat games of the season, with absolutely no motivation to play for.
Betting Tip: Cardinals 1.5-run line (-124)
With the mismatch of starting pitchers, taking the Cardinals on the 1.5-run line is our best chance to make a profit. As we mentioned, Flaherty is in peak form for a team that is looking to take care of business and the clinch the division. Look for St. Louis to get one step closer in achieving its goal and Flaherty to have yet another big performance on the mound.

Oakland Athletics (ML: -220) at Los Angeles Angels – O/U: 9.5
Betting Pick: A’s 1.5-run line (-144)
Time: Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 – 10:07 p.m. EST
OAK: Homer Bailey – R (13-8, 4.55 ERA/1.31 WHIP)
LAA: Dillon Peters – L (3-3, 4.81 ERA/1.51 WHIP)
Tuesday night’s MLB schedule has some big rivalry matchups on it which could create for profitable betting opportunities, but our top betting pick is the Oakland Athletics covering the run-line against the Los Angeles Angels. Let’s five into the facts and figures below, to learn why this is our best betting tip.
Betting Lines Analysis: Athletics at Angels
There is plenty of love for the A’s tonight, considering 85 percent of public bets/95 percent of money wagered are coming in on that side. In addition, 66 percent of public bets/52 percent of money wagered are on the total.
Athletics Betting Form
Homer Bailey has looked outstanding of late, allowing two runs or fewer in six of his last seven starts – the only misnomer was for three runs. Particularly, in the month of September, Bailey owns a 1.45 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 18 2/3 innings of work. To say things are going smoothly would be the understatement of the day.
The A’s have been one of the best offensive teams in MLB against left-handed pitching this season. Tonight’s opponent will be coming from that handedness of starter, so look for the A’s to bring the lumber to the ballpark and get it done in convincing fashion.
Angels Betting Form
Dillon Peters will certainly have his work cut out for him against a potent A’s lineup. The left-hander has allowed four runs or more in three of his last five starts, with mostly all of them coming against superior competition. Look for those struggles to continue, as the A’s will look to inch one step closer in clinching home-field for the Al Wild Card Game.
We already mentioned the form of Bailey for A’s and it’ll be much harder to do for the Angels with most of their key players out for the season. The rest of the year is being dedicated to figuring out what LA has in young talent, and Oakland will certainly take advantage of that.
Betting Pick: A’s 1.5-run line (-144)
There are mismatches in nearly every nuance of this matchup. Look for the A’s to take it to their division rivals early and often in this one, covering the run-line for us in the process.
This would be a great game to bet with PointsBet, as you could really increase your winnings if and when this A’s end up winning this game by a significant margin.
