Every team is in action in a packed MLB schedule for Tuesday, and that includes a day-night doubleheader in the Bronx as the New York Yankees host the New York Mets for two, following Monday’s rainout. Elsewhere Tuesday, top-tier pitchers face off at Progressive Field as Trevor Bauer and the Cleveland Indians (-120) host in-state rivals the Cincinnati Reds with Luis Castillo. Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins lead the Philadelphia Phillies (-132) against the Arizona Diamondbacks — Monday night the teams combined for a MLB record 13 home runs. The action ends with a battle for Los Angeles as Mike Trout and the Angels host Cody Bellinger and the Dodgers (-153). Fans everywhere will be playing off MLB odds for these games, but before locking in any MLB picks of your own, you’ll want to see the MLB best bets of the evening from MLB expert Zack Cimini.

Cimini is one of the fastest-rising handicappers in Vegas and has been finding the flaws in MLB odds and exposing them. He crushed MLB in 2018, going 138-107-2 for a $2,625 profit to $100 bettors tailing him. He’s currently riding another red-hot streak, hitting 20 of his last 28 picks (71 percent), raking in $1,234 in profits in a short amount of time to $100 players.

Part of his success: He analyzes matchups from every angle and earned his nickname “Contrarian with Chutzpah” by not always backing what the masses are. Now, Cimini locked in three MLB picks for Tuesday. He’s sharing those best bets only at SportsLine. If you parlay them together, you’d be looking at a payout of 5-1.

We can tell you he’s all over the Braves (-145) at home to face the Pirates at 7:20 p.m. ET. He’s nailed six of his last nine picks involving Pittsburgh, most-recently when he took the Brewers (-130) in an 11-5 win over the Pirates on May 30.

Cimini knows this is a pitching rematch of a week ago, and that didn’t go the Braves’ way. Chris Archer (3-5, 5.20 ERA) outdueled Mike Foltynewicz (1-5, 5.89) last Thursday. Folty allowed three runs over six innings, but Archer gave up just one over six in a 6-1 Pirates victory.

But the Braves come into Tuesday on a four-game win streak, including Monday’s 13-7 victory over these Pirates. Pittsburgh has dropped four in a row. Cimini sees a regression coming for Archer, who posted a 7.40 ERA in May. The hot Atlanta offense can take advantage.

“With Archer posting consecutive wins for the second time in two years, there’s optimal value on the Braves,” Cimini told SportsLine. “Grab Atlanta to squeeze out another win.” Confidently lock in the Braves on Tuesday, and you could be on your way to a big payout.

Cimini has also found a key x-factor that has him all over a road underdog Tuesday. This team offers major value on the money line and pushes the parlay to new heights. You can only see who it is at SportsLine.
