MINTY BETS: Bet $1 on any baseball game and when $100 in free bets. It's MLB Opening Day, and here are my best bets. Let's start off with the Rays and Marlins. I'm liking the under 8 here. The Rays are 10-3 to the under their last 13 regular season games, and this is a pitcher's-friendly park, so I really like the under here at 8.

My next pick is going to be the Chicago White Sox, minus-120 over the LA Angels. Lucas Giolito will be on the mound for the White Sox, and this lineup is pretty stacked. I love the Angels, and I love their lineup. However, we've seen the struggles that they have when it comes to pitching, so I can't rely on them. I'm going with the White Sox here.

And lastly, if you want to have a little fun with some favorites, here's a three-team moneyline parlay. Let's start off with the first leg. The Yankees over the Blue Jays. I'm not going against the Yankees at home here, especially with Gerrit Cole on the mound. Next leg of the parlay is going to be the Cleveland Indians over the Detroit Tigers. I am not betting against last year's AL Cy Young Award winner, Shane Bieber-- simple as that. And the last leg of the parlay is going to be the San Diego Padres over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Yu Darvish is making his first regular-season start with his new team, the Padres, and he's going up against an overrated Madison Bumgarner. So the Padres have the third-best offense in the league. I'll go with the Padres here as my last leg.
