MLB Baseball Odds Preview: Tuesday April 29 betting lines

Ezra Shaw

Run support turns mediocre pitchers into solid bets. Lack of it makes you think twice about betting on aces. Check the MLB run support leaders and how it affects today's baseball betting.

Baseball bettors get to bet on or against some starting pitchers who have enjoyed the most run support in the early MLB season.

CC Sabathia goes for the Yankees against Seattle and New York has backed him with 6.8 runs per game so far.

Tampa Bay has given Erik Bedard 18 runs in two starts but he is an underdog at Boston against John Lackey today.

Jose Quintana has also enjoyed Top 10 run support so far but the White Sox starter is a home underdog to visiting Detroit today.

Tyler Chatwood throws for Colorado and he has enjoyed nearly nine runs per game in run support over three starts so far. Small wonder there is a high 9.5 over-under on this match at Arizona.

Check out all of today's MLB betting lines and trends.
