Top MLB Betting Picks of the Week (June 3rd, 2024)

San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Angels

  • When: Monday, June 3rd, 2024, 9:38 PM ET
  • Where: Angels Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, CA
  • Radio: 97.3 The Fan FM (Padres) // AM830 KLAA (Angels)
  • Live Stream: MLB.tv
  • MLB Betting Odds: Padres (-147) // Angels (+128)

Home starter Tyler Anderson has a decent 1.13 WHIP and an even more impressive 2.47 ERA. The problem is that Anderson is 5-5, which means the Angels aren’t producing the runs required for Tyler to pick up wins. Still, when Anderson has his stuff working, the Angels play decent ball.

So if you like the Halos, then you must have faith in the Angels’ bullpen. That could be an issue facing a San Diego club that has won 5-of-7. The Padres’ bats have helped their starting pitcher, Matt Waldron, in his last few starts.

San Diego is 3-0 the last 3 times Waldron has stepped onto the hill. Not only that, but the SD starter recorded his best performance of the season in his last, a 4-0 win over the Miami Marlins. In the victory, Waldron threw 7 innings, gave up just 6 hits, and struck out 8. A hot pitcher and hot bats means the home team goes down.

MLB Betting Pick: Padres

San Francisco Giants vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

  • When: Monday, June 3rd, 2024, 9:40 PM ET
  • Where: Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ
  • Radio: KNBR 104.5 FM (Giants) // KMVP-FM 98.7 (Diamondbacks)
  • Live Stream: MLB.tv
  • MLB Betting Odds: Giants (+116) // Mariners (-136)

The Giants have yet to say who will start in this game. It might not matter. The G-Men are in a terrible slump, losers of 5-of-7 and 4 straight. Still, even though it’s easy to bang on the Giants for losing 4 straight, the competition in the losses suggests SF can bounce back in this.

The Giants fell to the Phillies and the Yankees in those losses. The Diamondbacks aren’t as solid of a club as NYY or Philadelphia. Also, Arizona will send Ryne Nelson and his 6.02 ERA to the mound.

The D’Backs have lost 3 of Nelson’s last 4 starts. Ah, but in the win, Arizona beat the mighty Los Angeles Dodgers 6-0 after Nelson tossed 5 innings, gave up 5 hits and no earned runs, walked 3, and struck out 5.

The AZ pitcher could post a similar stat line against the Giants on Monday night. Because of that, and because the Giants aren’t sure at the eleventh hour who they are starting, backing the home squad makes sense.

MLB Betting Pick: Diamondbacks
