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

MLB Betting Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The (64-68) Pittsburgh Pirates have won three of their last fourteen baseball contests and have fallen to fourth place in the NL Central. Although they have a winning record at home, it’s been a bit more difficult on the road, and their woes continued last night in a 5-2 loss as Ian Nova gave up two first-inning runs. It’s been the total opposite for St.Louis, and the surge began in the middle of July when Mike Shildt replaced Mike Matheny as manager. St.Louis will try to extend their streak over Pittsburgh Wednesday with right-hander Miles Mikolas getting the start. The Pirates have come out on the winning side in nine of his last ten starts, the most recent a 7-5 road win vs. Colorado on August 24th. St.Louis has won eight of their last ten at home. Wednesday’s Game time is 8:15 PM EST at the new Busch Stadium in downtown St.Louis, Missouri. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has St.Louis as a -160 home favorite. The betting odds total is eight runs for Wednesday’s contest.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has his team playing with a sense of urgency in July only to watch them take a step back in August. They’ll need to play flawlessly the down the stretch to have a chance at a postseason berth. Infielder Josh Harrison day’s in Pittsburgh is coming to an end; he recently cleared waivers, but no team has claimed him. What else could be expected with elite talents like Gerrit Cole, Andrew McCutchen and now Harrison is no longer in the dugout. Right-hander Trevor Williams will take his 3.44 earned run average to the pitcher’s mound tonight. The betting odds under the total has cashed in nine of his last ten outings, including a 2-1 August 5th home loss to St.Louis. The Pirates don’t have a player who’s batting over .300, Corey Dickerson is at .295, and the bats have to wake up if they’re going to make a run in September. Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at +20,000 to win the 2018 National League Championship Series.

The news keeps getting better for the St.Louis Cardinals as Adam Wainwright will be back in the rotation sooner than expected. Cardinals fans have seen a complete 360 degree turn from the bullpen during a stretch run in which they’ve taken the top wildcard spot. They’ll host Pittsburgh for two more before getting ready to entertain the lowly Cincinnati Reds. The Cardinals begin a six-game road swing on September 3rd in Washington, and it’s on to Detroit for an interleague set. There’s a familiar scent in the air around town, one which Cardinals faithful haven’t sniffed since the 2015 season which was the last time they were in the playoffs. First Baseman Matt Carpenter is finding his groove in clutch situations in the batter’s box crushing a team-best thirty-four home runs which the offense badly needs. Bovada.Lv, list the St.Louis Cardinals at +600 to win the 2018 National League Central Division.

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.

A Soft schedule has Nationals looking to close the gap in National League East.

Authored by Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

MLB Betting Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Expectations in the Nation’s Capital have been high for a half decade, and 2018 is no exception. Management understands there are decisions to make with Bryce Harper, a free agent at season’s end. After taking three of four from Miami over the weekend, they finish out the first half away from home. Washington (45-45), third-place in their division play’s the (41-48) Pittsburgh Pirates, 4th NL Central on Monday, July 9, 2018. Right-hander Ian Nova will take the pitcher’s mound 4-6 with a 4.48 earn run average. Game time is at 7:05 PM EST at PNC Park on the banks of three rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Local Television Networks are broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Washington as a -115 road favorite. The betting odds total is Nine Runs for Monday’s contest.

Washington looks to extend their 2018 three-game winning streak over Pittsburgh; the Nationals hosted Pittsburgh in early May. The Nationals lost five in a row from the end of July until their recent homestand against Miami and rumblings are beginning in the Beltway. However, there is a bright spot in the midst of their poor performance at National Park, where they are two-games below .500. Washington is 7-0 vs. NL Central opponents this season, and they should be able to take advantage with four-games in New York looming before the break. Manager Dave Martinez understands fans frustration, but they would rather have them peaking in September rather than July, they have enough talent to turn it on at any time. Closing a five and a half game lead by first-place Philadelphia would make satisfy the staff. Having Max Scherzer and Harper would put any coaching staff at ease for a moment. Bovada.Lv, list the Washington Nationals at +1,500 to win the 2018 NL World Series.

The Pittsburgh Pirates no longer have the services of Center Fielder Andrew McCutchen or Pitcher Gerrit Cole and find themselves twelve and a half out of first-place in their division. Pittsburgh will host Milwaukee who holds the top spot in the NL Central for five games before the All-Star break on July, 15th. Outfielders Corey Dickerson and Gregory Polanco are swinging a hot bat for Pittsburgh with Starling Marte also being solid as usual hitting the ball. Second baseman Josh Harrison returned from the disabled list late last month, his services will be a need in the second half of 2018 if Pittsburgh is to make a run at the Cubs, Cardinals, and Milwaukee. Although the Pirates are above .500 at home, they are 1-7 their last eight and have lost seven of ten overall. Bovada. Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at +8,000 to win the 2018 NL Central Crown.
