Eight games are on the MLB schedule for Thursday with the action getting underway with the Yankees (-200) traveling to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays at 7:07 p.m. ET. New York is running away with the AL East with a 10-game lead entering play on Thursday, but the AL Central is truly up for grabs with the Indians set to begin a series against the Twins (-105) in a battle of teams separated by just two games. Elsewhere, the Cubs will look to extend their lead in the NL Central against the Reds (+120), a team seven back in that division and looking to say alive in the MLB playoff picture. Fans everywhere will be playing off MLB odds for these games, but before locking in any MLB picks of your own, you need to see the MLB best bets from SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh, given the run he’s on.

The renowned co-founder of Accuscore, Oh uses a data-driven approach to crush sportsbooks. He raked in more than $1,100 to $100 bettors tailing his MLB picks in 2018 but he’s really crushing it in 2019, riding an awesome 138-94 heater on his MLB money-line picks into Thursday’s action. That’s brought in over $4,000 already to $100 bettors tailing him.

The key to the success: Oh’s projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, identifying critical trends and matchups he expects will make the difference — and he shares the results exclusively at SportsLine. Parlaying Thursday’s three picks could pay out at over 6-1.

For Thursday, we can tell you that Oh is going with the Braves (-202) on the road against the Marlins. In addition to his sizzling overall run, Oh has nailed eight his of last 10 money-line picks involving Atlanta. 

Oh’s model sees this as a matchup of teams going in opposite direction. The Braves have a chance to extend their six-game lead in the NL East with the Phillies, Nationals and Mets all trying to mount a charge. Not in the NL East conversation, however, are the Marlins, who have been ice cold recently and sit 24.5 games behind Atlanta in the standings. 

“The Braves are 18-5 straight-up as road favorites this year, the position they find themselves in on Thursday against the Marlins,” Oh told SportsLine. “They’re also 10-2 on the season against Miami. Dallas Keuchel has a solid 3.86 ERA since joining the Braves in the middle of the season, so the model gives him the edge against opposing starter Elieser Hernandez (1-4, 5.66 ERA). Miami has lost nine of 10 overall and the Braves just took two of three against the AL Central-leading Twins. They’re worth the price in this one.”

Confidently back the Braves on Thursday, and you could be on your way to a big payday.

He’s also unearthed a key x-factor you’re not even thinking about that has him all-in on a massive underdog Thursday, pushing the parlay to new heights. You can only see who it is at SportsLine.
