MLB Bets: Friday, March 31

After a near-perfect day on Opening Day (4-0 on money line bets, 1-0 on an under with the only loss being the three-team parlay), there’s only bet for today in what is a disappointing five-game slate.

Here are the bets for Friday, March 31.

White Sox-Astros Under 8 (-115)
It’s going to be hard to not take every White Sox under this season against a right-handed starter, and tonight they will face arguably the best starter in baseball in Christian Javier. As a Yankees fan, I’m very familiar with Javier, who started the combined no-hitter against the Yankees last June and then shut them down in Game 3 of the ALCS.

Lance Lynn is going for the White Sox, and while he doesn’t have great numbers against the Astros, as a control specialist, I trust him to now allow more than a few runs by avoiding walks. I’m expecting an outstanding start from Javier, so as long as Lynn doesn’t get absolutely rocked, I feel confident.

Here are the bets from yesterday.
