Greg Peterson posts his daily handicapped MLB lines for every game every day. Based on his lines vs. the actual lines, here is where Peterson sees value on today's menu. Peterson also does a daily podcast, The Baseball Betting Show, on which he breaks down every game every day.

Cubs vs. Nationals Total 8.5. Greg’s Total 7.8.

In MacKenzie Gore's five starts for the Washington Nationals, four have gone under the total. The Nationals are 27th among MLB teams in runs per game and last in home runs., facing a Cubs starting pitcher in Drew Smyly that has surrendered just four runs in his last four starts.

Reds vs. Padres Total 9. Greg’s Total 8.3.

Teams that go from elevation back to sea level often have a tough time adjusting to change. The Padres entered their series in Mexico ranked 27th in the league in runs per game and last in the National League in batting average. 

Blue Jays vs. Red Sox (+130). Greg’s Line Red Sox +123.

The Red Sox are third among MLB teams in runs per game going against a starter in Jose Berrios who has a road ERA of 6.57 with 1.8 home runs per nine innings allowed since the start of the 2022 season.
