If you’re looking to boost the annual MLB betting bankroll with a series of potentially winning wagers this week, then you’re going to have a great chance to do just that thanks to the expert sports betting analysis you’re about to get on the best ‘must-bet’ games taking place on Wednesday night.

Okay, with that said and tomorrow night’s action just over 24 hours from getting started, let’s rock and roll!

MLB Must Bet On Games for Wednesday Night

Miami at Philadelphia 1:05 PM ET

The Marlins (21-17) have the better offense this season, but the surprising Phillies (22-17) have the slightly better defense. Miami will hand the ball to right-hander Tom Koehler (2-3, 5.14 ERA) while Philly counters with right-hander Jeremy Hellickson (3-2, 4.12 ERA). The Marlins have lost each of Koehler’s last three starts while the Phils have won each of Hellickson’s last two starts.

Houston at Chicago White Sox 8:10 PM ET

The Astros (15-24) will turn to veteran right-hander Doug Fister (3-3. 4.22 ERA) in this contest, but with Chicago’s Mat Latos (5-0, 3.40 ERA) pitching like a Cy Young candidate this season and the ChiSox (24-14) playing like a very legitimate World Series contender, this matchup clearly looks one-sided.

Colorado at St. Louis 8:15 PM ET

Sure, the Cardinals (20-18) aren’t playing much better than Colorado (19-18) this season, but I think they’ve got a great chance to win this home contest with veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright (3-3, 6.80 ERA) on the mound opposite Colorado lefty Chris Rusin (6.60 ERA). St. Lois has won five straight games against Colorado with Wainwright on the mound and has both, the better offense and defense coming into this matchup.

San Francisco at San Diego 10:10 PM ET

Frisco (22-18) right-hander Johnny Cueto will take to the mound opposite San Diego (17-22) left-hander Drew Pomeranz. Cueto has gone 5-1 with a fine, 2.97 ERA, but Pomeranz has been even better in posting a stellar 1.80 ERA. Unfortunately, Pomeranz hasn’t gotten much run support which is why he’s just 4-3. Cueto beat the Padres by tossing a complete game shutout on April 26 while Pomeranz gave up four earned runs in a narrow 5-4 loss one day earlier. The Giats have won three straight and seven of the last nine meetings against their NL West division rivals.
