JT Miller shares some MLB best bets for Friday's slate including for the Dodgers vs. Cubs, Rays vs. Reds, and more.

MLB Best Bets for Friday: Dodgers vs. Cubs, Rays vs. Reds, and More

What a lovely little parlay this one should be for us this evening; I am ecstatic guys. When we run our two leggers on the diamond they tend to involve at least one ace on our side but tonight we have two tier-one caliber starters on our side. Normally I go to the games individually first but I just want to take a second to talk about the arms we are backing here tonight for a minute.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs

Tyler Anderson may not be the ace in the Dodgers starting rotation but hey I am not going to knock him for it, no one should with the talent they are sporting. Nonetheless, Anderson does more than just hold his own out there and is 9-1 sporting a 3.10 ERA and WHIP just north of a flat one at a 1.06. Tampa Bay Rays ace Shane McClanahan is 9-3 sporting a 1.74 ERA and sub-one WHIP with a stellar 0.81; to top it all off he is shoving and sitting them down at an amazing 12.18 k/9.


The Dodgers took care of business with the Cubs easily last night and improved to 53-29 on the season and are back at it this evening. With Anderson on the mound and that Dodgers lineup healthy and swinging it I love them against anyone; I also do not mind fading Keagan Thompson. To be fair he is a solid 7-3 with a 3.41 ERA on the season but his road splits are worse and I would not even care if they weren’t. This lineup isn’t anything like 95% of the rest of the league; they are so uber-talented and deep, they should be able to cause trouble.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Cincinnati Reds

As far as the Rays game goes it's simple; Shane is a Cy Young candidate who is barely conceding runs at the moment and giving nothing away free. Their ace is pitching like one and they are red hot with the bats as well. they are 4-1 across their last four games and other than getting skunked one time out, they scored 33 runs in the other four games.
