Allan Bell is joined by expert sports bettors Mike McClure and Micah Roberts on The Early Edge podcast. They give you their best bets for Major League Baseball, Wimbledon and soccer for Sunday, July 3.

Bell starts things off with two SportsLine Plays of the Day, both in soccer. The first is from Martin Green, who likes both teams to score in the Atlanta United-NYCFC MLS match (5 p.m. ET). The second is via Jon Eimer in the Brazlian Serie A: Both teams to score in the Atletico-Sao Paulo match (3 p.m. ET).

McClure is up next with a play in Wimbledon. He likes Carlos Alcaraz -3.5 games (-145) against Jannik Sinner in the Round of 16. "Sinner is 20 years old, and he is the older player in this matchup," Mike says. "Both guys are pretty similar in that they offer a ton of power, but Alcaraz is going to have the more consistent serve. Where I think Sinner breaks down eventually here is, I don't think he lands enough first serves to be able to put enough pressure on Alcaraz. I think Alcaraz is going to be able to break him."

Roberts wraps things up with a play in MLB. He likes the Orioles (+145) to beat the Twins and avoid a three-game sweep (2:10 p.m. ET). "(Tyler Wells) has been amazing for them. They've won his last six starts," Micah says. "His last three have been absolutely lights-out incredible - only two runs allowed in those three starts. And they love hitting for him - 9-2, 7-0, 10-2 and 10-0 scores in four of his last six starts. I think there's a lot of confidence built in there."
