Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Baseball Expert Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The enigma for Colorado Rockie fans continues regarding their team in 2018. Not that anyone’s complaining, they began August with four consecutive losses followed by two wins, only to drop three straight, and now they’re riding a four-game winning streak after Tuesday’s 5-1 road win in Houston. Left-hander Tyler Anderson (6-4) with a 3.94 earned run average will try to complete the series sweep and get revenge on an 8-2 home loss vs. Houston last month. Houston Astros manager A. J. Hinch believed his team would be ready for Colorado after they were swept by divisional foe Seattle in their previous home series and now cling to a game lead over second-place Oakland in the standings. Hinch watched his team get off to a 1-0 lead Monday, but it was short lived after Nolan Arenado went deep giving Colorado a 2-1 lead and Trevor Story home run in the eighth inning sealed the game. Wednesday’s game time is 8:10 PM EST at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston, Texas. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Colorado as a +190 road underdog. The betting odds total is seven runs for Wednesday’s contest.

 

A split with the reigning World Champions should be okay with Colorado manager Bud Black, no matter what happens Wednesday they’ll be in Atlanta Thursday for the start of a crucial four-game series against another first-place team. The Rockies have a 12-5 road record vs. American League opposition in 2018, and only Pittsburgh is better. Colorado is currently a game out of first place in the NL West but a more consistent effort each game will be needed for the next month, and a half from their twenty-third ranked pitching rotation. Although German Marquez did a masterful job Tuesday in what could be described as his best performance this season, they’ll need more just like it. The betting odds under has come in five of the Rockies last six-games which are an indication the rotation is coming rounding into form, but they over is 7-1 the previous eight times Tyler Anderson has been on the mound. Infielders Arenado and Story lead the Astros in the batter’s box, both came through in a big time way and have been clutch all season. Bovada.Lv list the Colorado Rockies at 18/1 to win the 2018 National League Championship Series.

The Houston Astros are 32-29 in front of their home crowd in contrast to their forty-one victories away from H-town which is second to Boston. Whatever the reason they’ll get to put the theory to test as they begin a nine-game road trip in Oakland on Thursday, August 16th, then it’s on to Seattle for three, before returning to Southern California for a three-game set against the dangerous Los Angeles Angels. Houston fans along with management are finding out first hand how essential the services of second baseman Jose Altuve is; he’s been out since July, 25th with a knee injury and expects to return later this month. Also, right fielder George Springer is on the 10-day disabled list with a sore thumb. Major League Baseball’s top-rated pitching staff will try to get back on track with Gerrit Cole and his Twelve victories taking the hill; however, he’s dropped his last three outings with all three staying under the total runs. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Astros at 4/1 to win the 2018 MLB World Series.

Pirates take on Twins Tuesday in Interleague series.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Analyst Bobby Wallace.

MLB Daily Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After going 4-3 out West, the Pittsburgh Pirates resume play Tuesday night after using Monday for traveling. With a (61-58) record they’re eight games from the top spot in the NL Central and five in the race for a wildcard berth. Jameson Taillon who’s already beaten Minnesota once this season will take his (9-8) record to the pitcher’s mound tonight, the right-hander has won four of his last five starts, the most recent a complete game in a 10-2 road win over Colorado. The (54-63) Minnesota Twins are slowly fading in the standings after dropping five of seven they return home for two against Pittsburgh before entertaining Detroit and the White Sox. Game time is 8:10 PM EST at Target Field in the North loop overlooking the skyline of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Pittsburgh as a -120 road favorite. The betting odds total is nine runs for Tuesday’s contest.

Pittsburgh got back into the thick of things by winning five consecutive post-All-Star break and can creep even closer in the standings with the first place Cubs and Braves coming to the Steel City from August 16th through the 22nd. However, manager Clint Hurdle must have his team ready for the task at hand which is the Minnesota Twins who perform well in front of their fans. Pittsburgh could be without catcher Francisco Cervelli who’s dealing with a head injury. The Pirates-120 should be a favorite selection with baseball bettors tonight with Tallion on the hill as well as their 20-6 interleague record, including 12-3 in 2018. The betting odds over the total is 6-2 his last eight starts which could also entice the betting community. Pittsburgh controls their destiny; a lot will be determined the next week or two especially with two wildcard positions wide open. Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at +5,000 to win the 2018 National League Central division.

 

As well as Pittsburgh performs against American League opposition, the Minnesota Twins are 6-12 in interleague action in 2018. Twelve and a half behind first-place Cleveland in the American League Central and sixteen form the wildcard manager Paul Molitor must hope for a miraculous turnaround in his fourth season. The Twins look like they will finish the season as bridesmaids once again. Right-hander Jake Odorizzi (4-7) brings a 4.50 earned run average to the mound tonight. The Illinois native has a no-decision in four of his last five starts, but his team has lost three of those four. Left Fielder Eddie Rosario leads the batting order with a .296 batting average, twenty home runs, sixty-seven runs batted in and 138 hits. Longtime fan favorite Joe Mauer has a team-best .349 on-base percentage. Minnesota will probably have to wait for 2019 after losing to the Yankees in the 2017 wildcard contest. Bovada.Lv list the Minnesota Twins +2,500 to win the 2018 AL Central crown.

A pair of teams who are seven games out of division race square off Friday.

 

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Al Presto.

Baseball Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The (60-56) Pittsburgh Pirates, are 3-1 on their current road swing after taking two of three at Colorado and putting up ten-runs last night in a victory in the Bay Area. Manager Clint Hurdle will hand the ball to right-hander Clay Holmes who got his first career win at home on July 14th at PNC Park vs. Milwaukee. The Dothan, Alabama native has two appearances in a starting role with a 3.65 earned run average. Although San Francisco is still in the playoff race doesn’t mean Bruce Bochy is taking anything for granted, after all, they’re seven games out of the divisional and wildcard race. Injuries have decimated the pitching staff this season the latest casualty being starter Johnny Cueto who’s out for the season while Jeff Samardzija is set to return later this month. The prolific pitching rotation is what brought three World Series in six years to the franchise from 2010-14. Even 2014 Ace Madison Bumgarner has been a casualty appearing in just twelve games in 2018 but is slowly returning into form, and they’ll need at his best down the stretch. Game time is 10:15 PM EST at AT&T Park near the Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Pittsburgh as a +110 road underdog. The betting odds total is eight and a half runs for Friday’s contest.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have a chance to get reacquainted with Andrew McCutchen who roamed the outfield in a Bucs uniform for nine-season and lead the Giants with forty-six runs batted in his first season in San Francisco. After Thursday’s win, Pittsburgh is now a .500 team road team and with three more vs. The Giants and then two in an interleague series in Minneapolis should have them playing with more confidence; they’ve also won eight of their last ten away from home. Outfielders Corey Dickerson along with Gregory Polanco are leading the Pirates in five broad hitting categories while Starling Marte and Josh Harrison are also contributing with consistency. The Pirates are behind St.Louis, Milwaukee, and just seven games behind the first place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Pittsburgh is also positioned for the top Wildcard spot in the National League, putting teams on notice are the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at 60/1 to win the 2018 National League Central division.

San Francisco is 1-5 their last six overall, making matter worse is their 2-8 record when playing in front of loyal fans at chilly AT&T Park on the bay. The good news is they’ll have their best starting pitcher in 2018 on the mound tonight. Left-hander Derek Holland has only five wins t to his credit this season with his last four outings resulting in no-decision games, he’s also been used in a reliever role, but San Francisco is 8-3 their previous eleven when Holland gets the start. Bochy hopes he can stop the bleeding to a team that desperately needs a victory. San Francisco will hit the road playing ten games in eleven days from August 13th beginning in Los Angeles and the finale in the Big Apple vs. The Mets. Shortstop Brandon Crawford along with McCutchen have been models of consistency this season playing in nearly all games. Crawford has a team-best one hundred and eleven hits. Bochy understands what it takes to win, and the Giants have the talent and composure to make a run at a playoff berth; don’t count them out. Bovada.Lv, list the San Francisco Giants 40/1 to win the 2018 NLCS.

Mariners are trying to climb back into the hunt for October in Houston.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

MLB Daily Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After losing star Robinson Cano eighty games for violating the anti-drug policy manager, Scott Servais did a masterful job elevating players to perform at a maximum level, but it’s been tough sledding since the 2018 All-Star break. Houston is 3-7 their last ten as they prepare for a critical four-day series in Houston. The (73-42) Houston Astros have a five-game lead in the American League West division and are returning home from a successful eight-game road trip in which they won six of eight. Right-Hander Justin Verlander has been lights out on the mound his previous three starts, the most impressive a 2-1 win in Los Angeles over the Dodgers his last outing. Game time is 8:10 PM EST at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Houston as a -160 home favorite. The betting odds total is six and a half runs for Thursday’s contest.

The Seattle Mariners are nine games out of the top spot in the AL West and have dropped six of nine to the reigning World Series Champions in 2018. Making matter worse they will travel to Oakland to face a red-hot A’s team beginning Monday, August 13th. It doesn’t stop there as they’ll return to the Pacific Northwest to host the Dodgers and Houston again for six games before traveling to Arizona. Ace lefty James Paxton (9-5) with a 3.51 earned run average gets the call Thursday; he’s 1-4 his last four starts. Seattle is 2-7 their last seven overall, and in a ten game span, they’ve won just twice which makes the next two weeks critical as we are approaching the back end of the season. Cano should be cleared to play Tuesday, August 14th in Oakland giving the lineup a much-needed boost. Shortstop Jean Segura, designated hitter Nelson Cruz along with right fielder Mitch Haniger are carrying the load at the plate, and Cano’s added dimension can only help their cause. Bovada.Lv, list the Seattle Mariners at +900 to win the 2018 AL West division crown.

Houston Astros manager A. J. Hinch expects his team to dominate divisional opponents, and they’ve been doing just that, but he’s also aware of the surging Oakland A’s who are only five games behind his squad. Houston has the top pitching staff in baseball, and the bullpen also ranks first in both leagues. Houston has been dominant against every division except the American League East which houses the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, two teams that will not be intimidated by the Astros in the postseason. For now, they’ll enjoy a six-game homestand, and it’s on the road again for nine vs. AL West opponents Oakland, Seattle, and the Los Angeles Angels. Jose Altuve along with his infield battery mate Carlos Correa are nursing minor injuries, giving playing time to reserves who are performing admirably and it could pay dividends in the playoffs. The betting odds over the total has come in six of the last eight between the teams. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Astros +230 to win the 2018 ALDS.

Dodgers look for revenge at home tonight against Houston in Interleague action.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Expert Analyst Greg Nelson.

Top MLB Expert Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After taking two of three from Seattle, the Houston Astros spent Thursday, August 2nd in Los Angeles with business as usual on their minds in a rematch of the 2017 World Series. The Astros beat the Dodgers 2-1 the next day without Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve who are nursing minor ailments, but Justin Verlander was outstanding allowing four hits with a run in seven and two-thirds innings. Right-hander Lance McCullers Jr.(10-6) with a 4.06 earned run average will get the call tonight, the Tampa, Florida native should be in his comfort zone after beating the Dodgers in both of his starts in the 2017 World Series. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Dodgers need a win as they are now in a first-place tie with Arizona. Los Angeles is 2-3 on their current homestand which ends Sunday with a six-game road trip against surging Oakland and Colorado on the slate it’s crucial for the Dodgers to perform at a high level. Game time is 9:05 PM EST at Dodgers Stadium in the Chavez Ravine section of Los Angeles, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has the Dodgers as a -140 home favorite. The betting odds total is seven and a half runs for Saturday’s contest.

Manager A. J. Hinch watched in disgust as his team got swept at home by their in-state rivals Texas Rangers getting outscored 22-8 in the span of three games. The reigning World Champions then lost game one of a series in Seattle before righting the ship, and they are now on a three-game winning streak as fans breath a sigh of relief showing why they have the best road record in baseball. Despite their previous homestand, the Astros have the top pitching rotation in baseball with the bullpen being just as effective. Although Hinch watched his team perform at a maximum level last night they aren’t the same without their infield battery of Altuve and Correa, their return is paramount for the stretch run primarily with the red-hot Oakland A’s. The Astros have beaten Los Angeles 4 of their last six meetings with the betting odds under coming in three times over the previous four contests. The total could be tricky tonight with McCullers who got shelled the last time he pitched in Southern California allowing five runs in four innings to the Angels; he’s also lost his three previous starts overall. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Astros at +450 to win the 2018 World Series.

The Dodgers will send right-hander Kenta Maeda who usually last five to six inning to the pitcher’s mound. Manager Dave Roberts likes the direction of his team that’s why management didn’t make any significant moves at the trade deadline but the absence of shortstop Cory Seager who’ll miss the remainder of the season could be felt as the season progresses. Left Fielder Matt Kemp is in a bit of a slump in the batter’s box with a single hit in the last ten games, right fielder Yasiel Puig missed last night’s game after driving in four runs batted in the finale vs. Milwaukee, his status is uncertain Saturday. As good as Houston’s pitching staff is the Dodgers are just as productive ranking third in the MLB landscape with a 3.48 earned run average. As usual, Kenley Jansen is one of the best coming out of the bullpen, but the rest of the relievers are having their share of problems this season. Making the under more enticing for bettors is the Dodgers staying under the total seven of their last eight interleague games. Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Dodgers at +500 to win the 2018 World Series Championship.

Angels topsy-turvy season continues Wednesday in Tampa.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Analyst Al Presto.

MLB Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After winning four in a row, the Los Angels are back to the pattern of losing which has been haunting them all season. Owner Arte Moreno doesn’t mind opening up his wallet to plenty of high priced players but it hasn’t paid dividends, and fans in Orange County are getting restless. The Angels are valued at $1.8 billion according to Forbes magazine which makes them the eighth richest franchise in Major League Baseball. Nick Tropeano will try to stop the bleeding Wednesday when he takes the mound for the (54-54) Los Angeles Angels, and the right-hander has given up a total of twelve runs his last three starts averaging five-inning pitched per contest in the span. Although the Tampa Bay Ray’s are a game over .500, they are twenty games out of first in the American League East division behind Boston. It’s a two-horse race at this point with the Yankees and Red Sox but their a glimmer of hope at a wildcard spot in the 2018 postseason, they currently trail Seattle by nine games for the final position. Game time is 7:05 PM EST at Tropicana Field in suburban St. Petersburg, Florida. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Tampa Bay as a +105 home underdog. The betting odds total is Eight Runs for Wednesday’s contest.

Only San Antonio Spurs Gregg Popovich has held the title of coach/manager in the four major sports longer than Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia who is in his eighteenth season as manager. The 2002 Angels took care of San Francisco in seven games bringing a World Series trophy back to Orange County, but it’s been tough times since. Center Fielder Mike Trout is a once in a decade type of player, and they must build around his talent. The twenty-six-year-old New Jersey native is one of the top run producers in Major League Baseball; he’s third in home runs and runs scored. Justin Upton is also producing; however, the hype of two-way standout Shohei Ohtani is slowly wearing off of baseball fans. Los Angeles will travel to Cleveland for three games from August 3rd to 5th. Then it’s back home to host Detroit and Oakland. If the Angels can somehow put something together, it could be interesting the next month, but quality pitching is paramount for that to happen. Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Angels at 125/1 to win the 2018 American League Championship series.

Since Joe Maddon departed to manage the Chicago Cubs, there has been little to cheer about in Tampa Bay. Kevin Cash took over in 2015 with hopes to keep the momentum, but it’s been tough sledding. Tampa Bay is 30-20 when playing at Tropicana Field, they also have a winning record vs. American League West opposition. The Rays have taken down the Los Angeles Angels in four of five games this season with hopes of notching another win tonight. Relief Pitcher Tyler Glasnow who just came over from Pittsburgh in a trade for Chris Archer plus a player to be named later finds himself in a starting role in game two for the three-game set Wednesday. The Newhall, California native has 5.79 earned run average mostly coming out of the bullpen. Tampa Bay can gain some ground in the wildcard race with lowly White Sox followed by Baltimore visiting Florida’s Gulf Coast from August 3rd through the 9th. Infielder Matt Duffy, C.J. Cron, and Daniel Robertson are productive in the batter’s box for Tampa Bay. Bovada.Lv, list the Bovada. Lv, register the Tampa Bay Rays also at 125/1 to win the 2018 ALCS.

Bucs are looking to get first win against Lester as they entertain the Cubs.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Greg Nelson.

Top Baseball Daily Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon is looking for a way to kick-start his team so they can put some distance between second-place Milwaukee in the National League Central division. What better way to begin a two-day set in Pittsburgh than to send their ace lefty Jon Lester who’s (7-1) with a 3.16 earned run average on the road this season to the hill, more impressive is his 2-0 record vs. Pittsburgh in three starts. Chicago holds a 5-4 advantage in nine meeting with the Pirates thus far in 2018. The Pittsburgh Pirates are third in the division just seven games out of the top spot as we enter August, although the Pirates have a winning record at home manager Clint Hurdle believes they must take it up a notch in their next five in their friendly confines. Game time is 7:05 PM EST at PNC Park where the Three Rivers meet in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Chicago as a -110 road favorite. The betting odds total is Seven, And A Half Runs for Tuesday’s contest.

After two in the Steel City Chicago will travel back to Wrigleyville to entertain San Diego for a four-game series before heading to Kansas City for interleague play and, then it’s back home for five games against Washington and Milwaukee. Major League Bettors have already begun to move the line as Pittsburgh started as a favorite but they’re doing their homework and now Lester who tops MLB pitchers with $1,246 in profits. As good as Lester has been performing the bullpen ranks third in baseball with a 3.21. Infielders Javier Baez and Kris Bryant are one of the primary reason’s the Chicago lineup rank second in Major League Baseball with a .266 team batting average. However, Bryant is Bryant was recently but on the disabled list which puts Anthony Rizzo, Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward in position to take their performance in the batter’s box to another level. Maddon understands he’s got a team capable of bringing home a World Series title, but they must give a maximum effort each game, especially against the lesser talented competition. Bovada.Lv, list the Chicago Cubs at 8/1 to win the 2018 World Series.

Clint Hurdle has been in the dugout for eight seasons in Pittsburgh making the playoffs in 2013-15, but they’ve had two straight seasons without a postseason appearance. It all could turn around quick, and Hurdle has decided to put his best hurler Jameson Taillon on the mound in which should be the best pitching matchup of the night in either league. Taillon is 7-8 this season with one hundred and fourteen strikeouts to his credit; it’ll be his first outing against the Cubs this season. Pittsburgh is playing lights out vs. Divisional opponents this season, their twenty-six victories to ten defeats is the best of any team in the NL Central. With Corey Dickerson and Josh Bell out of the lineup with various injuries Gregory Polanco, David Freese, and Josh Harrison must carry to load against the top money pitcher in the business. Pittsburgh is 13-3 their last sixteen overall but 1-8 when playing on Tuesday’s, another reason the money is going in favor of the Cubs. Bovada.Lv, list the Bovada. Lv, register the Pittsburgh Pirates at 16/1 to win the 2018 NL Central Crown.
