Sixteen games are on the MLB slate for Wednesday, July 28th with one doubleheader scheduled between the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox, so there are plenty of money-making opportunities throughout the day for sports bettors.

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

MLB picks for Wednesday, July 28th

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

Runs will be extremely hard to come by in the final game of the night when the Los Angeles Dodgers head on the road to play the San Francisco Giants. Walker Buehler will throw for Los Angeles with a 2.31 ERA and has not given up more than three earned runs in his last 13 starts. For the Giants, Anthony Desclafani has a 2.87 ERA and allowed more than three runs once in 20 starts.

Diamondbacks -1.5 (+160) vs. Rangers

The Arizona Diamondbacks have the worst record in the MLB by a rather large margin, but we’re taking them on the run line on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers. Madison Bumgarner doesn’t have great numbers, but he has been better since his return. In his last two starts, he allowed just two earned runs over a span of 11 innings.

Brewers O4.5 runs (-130)

The Milwaukee Brewers came out of the All-Star Break hot offensively, and that hasn’t stopped. Christian Yelich hit the IL with COVID-19, but the Brewers remain in good shape. Milwaukee scored eight runs in the first two innings of last night’s win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, and they have tallied six or more runs in three of the last four games.

J.A. Happ O4.5 strikeouts (-140)

Minnesota Twins starter J.A. Happ has had a rough season with a 6.14 ERA this season in a large sample size, but he should be able to rack up the strikeouts Wednesday afternoon. He is going up against the Detroit Tigers, which have the second highest number of strikeouts in the league.
