William Hill MLB Betting Tips – 7 August, 2018

Chicago Cubs @ Kansas City Royals

7 Aug, 10:15am
Cubs $1.45, Royals $2.85
The Cubs head to Kansas City on Tuesday as they face the lowly Royals. The home side is 34-77 on the season and will look to avoid a 5th straight loss. They’re coming back from a road-trip as they lost 3 of their last 10. But it doesn’t get better when they play at home as they hold a 15-37 record. They rank 29th for runs scored and runs allowed at this venue. So $1.45 for the Cubs is fair. At 64-47, they’re battling the Brewers for the NL Central and they’ll look for an easy win. They rank as the 4th best scoring team on the road and also allow just 3.67 runs per game. Cole Hamels will make his 2nd start for his new side. After his trade from the Rangers, he pitched 5 quality innings against the Pirates to earn the win. He loves pitching against the Royals with a 1.95 ERA since 2016. Junis of the Royals isn’t having a great run on the mound. He holds a 7.50 ERA in his last 7 with a 1-5 win-loss record. So I doubt he can stop the Cubs from recording a comfortable win.
Best bet: Cubs -1.5 $1.73

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Colorado Rockies

7 Aug, 10:40am
Rockies $1.69, Pirates $2.22
The Rockies are back at home after a less than successful road-trip. They lost 5 of 7 against the Brewers and Cardinals. But they should enjoy being back at Coors Field. They’ve won 4 in a row, which includes 3 over the strong Athletics. Runs is usually on the cards when they play at home as they score 5.29 per game. The Pirates come to Colorado with an inconsistent 4-6 record in their last 10 as they struggled against the Cardinals and Cubs. They haven’t been an overly great road team so this should be a tough challenge. In the pitching matchup, this looks to be a good one between Freeland and Musgrove. Freeland is pitching well at home lately with just 13 hits allowed in his last 18.1 innings. He also beat the Pirates in the last meeting at this venue. Musgrove is coming off a 7 inning, 5 hit and 1 earned run outing against the Mets. He has pitching well in his last 2 road starts. So in the end, I think this should be close and low scoring due to the pitching duel. Which should see the unders get up. The under is 2-1 between the sides this season and the Rockies last 3 home games averaged 4.67 total runs.
Best bet: Under 11 runs $1.94

Philadelphia Phillies @ Arizona Diamondbacks

7 Aug, 11:40am
Diamondbacks $1.74, Phillies $2.12
At Chase Field, the D-backs host the Phillies in one of the best matchups of the day. Both sides have won over 60 games in 2018 and are pushing for a playoff position. The away side comes to Arizona after easily disposing of the Marlins in a 4 game sweep. The D-backs have won 3 of 5 on this homestand and will be ready for the challenge. The key will be the pitching matchup. Jake Arrieta will take the ball for the Phillies and faces Zach Godley. Arrieta has turned around his form lately. He’s dominated the Red Sox and Dodgers in back to back starts. He also pitched 7 innings in his last outing against this team. Godley is coming off a 2 hit, 7 inning and 10 strikeout ballgame against the Rangers. So he should be able to continue that form on Tuesday. In the end, I can see a low scoring game here. The Phillies are 24th in the Majors for runs scored in away games. The D-backs are top 10 for the same category, but Arrieta should be the difference in keeping their bats quiet.
Best bet: Under 8.5 runs $1.82
