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.

Guardians vs. White Sox Total 8. Greg's Total 7.4.

The Guardians are 28th among the 30 MLB teams in runs per game with 3.5 and will be without on-base percentage leader Jose Ramirez who is on the bereavement list. Both teams are in the bottom four in on-base percentage. White Sox starter Dylan Cease looked more like himself in his last start with six scoreless innings.

Rays vs. Mets (-115). Greg's Line: Rays -143.

The Rays lead the league in runs, home runs, and batting average. They face a starter in Tylor Megill who has a 5.18 ERA with 5.6 walks per nine innings and an opponents batting average of .284 in his last five starts. The Rays are 3-0 in Taj Bradley's starts this season with him completing at least five innings with three runs or fewer allowed in all of them while posting 13.5 strikeouts and 1.2 walks per nine innings.
