With nine games on the MLB slate on Thursday, July 22nd, there are plenty of opportunities for bettors on DraftKings Sportsbook. Most of the games will take place at night with one first pitch taking place in the early afternoon.

Here we’re going to be tracking all the best MLB picks base on the odds and lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for Thursday’s baseball action.

MLB picks for Thursday, July 22nd

Braves -1.5 (+110) vs. Phillies

The Atlanta Braves have a big pitching matchup in their game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night. Atlanta will start with Charlie Morton, who has an 8-3 record and 3.69 ERA. Philadelphia will start Matt Moore, who has a 5.25 ERA and has thrown more than 4.1 innings one time this season. Getting the Braves on the run line with plus value is a good play.

Giants vs. Dodgers U7.5 runs (-115)

If you want a fantastic pitching matchup, you may have to stay up late on Thursday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the San Francisco Giants. San Francisco will start Anthony DeSclafani with a 2.78 ERA, and Walker Buehler has a 2.37 ERA. Runs will be extremely hard to come by in the final game of a four-game set.

Tanner Houck U4.5 strikeouts (-115)

The Boston Red Sox will start with Tanner Houck on the mound against the New York Yankees on Thursday night, and he has played just seven games over the past two years in his major league career. The Yankees recently saw him throw last week when he tossed three innings, and they should have enough of a read on him for this strikeout to go under.
