Today's Best US Sports Bets & Tips

Today's US Sports Picks

Published 11:30 (UK time) Friday 27th May 2022

Red Sox to win and score over 5.5 runs Orioles @ Red Sox - MLB 11/10
St. Louis Blues moneyline Avalanche @ Blues - NHL 31/20
Verlander to get win and allow under 1.5 earned runs Astros @ Mariners – MLB 8/5

Pick 1: Red Sox to win and score over 5.5 runs
Orioles @ Red Sox - MLB - 19:10 (ET)
Current Best Price 11/10 | 2.10 | +110

The Red Sox are recovering from an awful start to the season, but even their eight wins from their last 10 is only good enough to place them fourth in the AL East, 10.5 games back from the pace-setting Yankees. Tonight, they face AL East cellar dwellers, the Orioles after a 16-7 shellacking of the White Sox Thursday.

The Orioles are 4-6 in their last 10 and look like they’re going nowhere this season at 18-27. They face the Red Sox at Fenway Park with a 6-16 record on their travels this season. The Red Sox have scored over 5.5 runs in six of their last seven (all wins). Add this to the fact Kyle Bradish steps up to the plate to start for the Orioles after giving up nine runs in his last two outings, and this could get ugly quickly. Take the double at 11/10

Pick 2: St. Louis Blues moneyline
Avalanche @ Blues - NHL - 20:05 (ET)
Current Best Price 31/20 | 2.55 | +155

The St. Louis Blues live to fight another day, and that day is today. Having survived one potential elimination game, they now face another tonight and hope to have a third on Sunday evening. There was very little between the two teams in Game 5 in Colorado, with the Avs shading the shot count and xG metrics. The Blues will have home advantage tonight, as they look to force the most unlikely of Game 7s.

Despite being outshot at a ratio of 3:4 and having lost their in-form goaltender Jordan Binnington to injury in Game 3, the Blues continue to hang in there. Historically, teams who have reached Game 6 via the same path as the Blues (LWLLW without home advantage) are 14-11 in that game. While the Avs are still rightly the cup favourites, the Blues are a value bet here to force that decider and make their opponents sweat for one more night in Denver. 

Pick 3: Verlander to get win and allow under 1.5 earned runs
Astros @ Mariners - MLB - 21:40 (ET)
Current Best Price 8/5 | 2.65 | +160

Justin Verlander is continuing to defy father time in his age-39 season. After missing all of 2021 and most of 2020 after Tommy John surgery there were fair questions as to whether he could be the same star at his age and after such a gap. Well, he currently leads the league in ERA (1.22), WHIP (0.716) and hits allowed per nine innings pitched (4.9).

His record this season is 6-1 and he’s allowed over 1.5 earned runs in just two of eight starts. It seems fair to question whether his body will hold up into the autumn for a World Series tilt, but for now expect him to keep rolling along with another star turn.
