Kyle Tucker O/U 1.5 Total Bases | RISK FREE BET from BetMGM

Bello is allowing a .389 average and 42.1% hard contact to lefties while posting a 4.74 xFIP and an 8.82 ERA. Tucker’s been quiet of late, though a date with Bello could change that and getting considerable plus-money odds for two bases on hits makes for one of the best MLB betting picks today.
