Authored by Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Greg Nelson.

MLB Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Expectations for a banner season was expected for the 2018 Los Angeles Angels who are one game above .500. After the National League Dodgers went to the World Series in 2017 Angels, fans want to witness what loyalists in Chavez Ravine watched even though their Dodgers lost in seven games to Houston. Two-way player Shohei Ohtani should be ready to thrill baseball fans in a limited role after an elbow injury. The (54-31) Seattle Mariners lost star Robinson Cano, but manager Scott Servais is bringing out the best in players each day. Seattle has 2018 World Series favorites Houston on their toes and is just a half-game behind in the American League West division standings. Tuesday’s contest is at 10:10 PM EST at Safeco Field in beautiful Seattle, Washington. Local Television Networks will broadcast the game. The Opening Betting Line has Seattle as a -110 favorite. The betting odds total is Eight, And A Half Runs for Tuesday’s contest.

After beginning June winning seven of eight, the Los Angeles Angels finished last month with a 5-13 record and found themselves eleven and a half out of first-place. Los Angeles is three game behind third-place Oakland, but Manager Mike Scioscia remains optimistic. Los Angeles will return to Southern California hosting an interleague set against the cross-town rivals Dodgers, then Seattle comes to town, on the Dodgers Stadium before the All-Star break. Strangely enough, the Angels have a winning road record plus are above .500 vs. Division opponents. Center Fielder Mike Trout is already a star and not only leads Los Angeles in four of five broad batting categories but is among baseballs best manufacturing along with hitting home runs. Critical injuries to the pitching staff and shortstop Zack Cozart are major distractions, but somehow the payroll must meet expectations. Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Angels at +50,000 to win the 2018 American League Pennant.

Besides Felix Hernandez and James Paxton having an exceptional season pitching, left-hander Wade LeBlanc 3-0 with a 3.38 earned runs average has also contributed when called upon. He’ll take the mound Tuesday for Seattle who’s currently on a seven-game winning streak, and they aren’t planning on imploding before the first half of the season ends. Shortstop Jean Segura and designated hitter Nelson Cruz Jr. lead the third-ranked offense in Major League Baseball while outfielder Mitch Haniger has sixty-two runs batted in, second league-wide. Seattle has been very favorable to MLB bettors this season, as a matter of fact, they’ve been a money making machine the best in baseball. Who knows how long Seattle will continue they’re winning ways, but they’re turning head of the betting community. Bovada. Lv, list the Seattle Mariners at +350 to win the 2018 AL West Division title.

Winning Baseball Daily Picks, News, Notes and Odds for Saturday, June 23, 2018: Seattle Mariners at Boston Red Sox.

Authored by Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Greg Nelson

Free MLB Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Seattle Mariners travel to Beantown for game two of a three-game set. Seattle (49-26) and second, American League West is looking to get back on track vs. A team which they went 2-2 against less than a week ago in the Pacific Northwest. Boston (50-26) also 2nd in the AL East must continue to bring their A-game as the New York Yankees are playing excellent baseball. Saturday’s contest is at 7:15 PM EST at historic Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. The Fox Television Networks will be broadcasting to a national audience. Seattle doesn’t get in the national spotlight very often, and they hope to show their talent after a lackluster performance in the Big Apple. The Opening Betting Line has Seattle as a +160 road underdog with the betting odds total at nine runs for Saturday’s contest.

Seattle will be trying to break a four-game losing streak on Friday, June 22nd against Boston. After losing the finale in Baltimore they got swept by the New York Yankees, they should have won the first, but New York pulled it out in extra innings. Seattle has been very good to bettors this season despite losing star player Robinson Canó to a suspension. Manager Scott Servais seems to be getting the best out of his players in Canó’s absence, and their batting lineup ranks fifth overall in baseball with a .258 team batting average. Shortstop Jean Segura is the team leader with a .359 on-base percentage, and ninety-nine hits. Designated Hitter Nelson Cruz has eighteen home runs. Starting Pitchers Mike Leake, and James Paxton leads a less than productive rotation which includes Felix Hernandez. Seattle must right the ship and find a way to get back to playing with a swag. Bovada.Lv, list the Seattle Mariners at 6/1 to win the 2018 American League Pennant.

The Boston Red Sox have all the ingredients to make a Championship run, but New York is in their way. Boston boasts a winning record at home as well as the road, and one of three teams with fifty wins, Yankees and Astros are the others. A six-game homestand vs. Seattle and the Angels must produce positive results as a massive road trip to The Bronx is on the horizon. Left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez. 3.59 earn run average with nine wins under his belt will be on the mound Saturday; he beat Seattle 9-3 less than a week ago. Ace Chris Sale leads the staff with 140 strikeouts but must be ready for October. Mookie Betts and JD Martinez are two of the best bats in baseball and should get plenty of hittable pitchers Saturday. Boston must play with a sense of urgency; a sweep is what fans have in mind. Bovada. Lv, list the Boston Red Sox at 13/2 to win the 2018 World Series.

Boston is looking to come into Thursday’s game after sweeping Baltimore on the road.

Martinez are swinging the bat with authority, Martinez is first in MLB with fifty-four runs batted in and is second in home runs twenty-one. Boston must make sure they keep pace with New York by getting solid outings from their pitching staff. Bovada.Lv, list the Boston Red Sox at +240 to win the 2018 MLB American League Pennant.

Seattle has a half-game lead on defending World Champions Houston in their division. Despite losing Robinson Cano for violating the anti-drug policy manager, Scott Servais has his team believing.

Seattle is 8-2 vs. American League East opposition this season and will get Cano back August 14th. Shortstop Jean Segura leads the team in three of five broad hitting categories, but it’s been a team effort in realizing their potential. Starting Pitcher Felix Hernandez will be on the hill for game one; the Venezuelan must regain his form from a few years ago if Seattle is to take it to the next level.

Seattle Mariners are can do without Robinson Cano

Seattle Mariners are can do without Robinson Cano

Thursday, December 12th, 2013 was a momentous day for the Seattle Mariners.  While I was blowing out candles on a cake in Miami, they equalled the third-largest deal in Major League Baseball history by signing New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano to a 10-year $240 million contract. Then-M’s general manager Jack Zduriencik may have thought it wise to get the deal done before Friday the 13th. Unfortunately, he didn’t think to send me birthday wishes for my 50th, thereby failing to avoid cursing the deal.

Winning 2018 Baseball Picks

In the four since-completed seasons with Cano in the lineup, the club hasn’t improved noticeably, finishing third, fourth, second and third in the American League West. When you make a signing of that magnitude, you expect to win. Or you should.

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018 turned out to be the second momentous day in the marriage between the Mariners and their high-priced second-sacker. Cano was suspended 80 days by Major League Baseball for a positive result to a drug test.

You wouldn’t imagine the Mariners would take the news positively. Not the fans, not Cano’s teammates, not manager Scott Servais or current GM Jerry Dipoto. While Cano had only hit four home runs on the season, he had contributed 24 rbi and 23 runs in 39 games, projecting him into the 90s for both over an entire season. His basic numbers as a Mariner suggest the team was faced with replacing 12 hr, 45 rbi and 40 runs. That isn’t a pleasing prospect.

Robinson Cano's numbers in his first four seasons as a Seattle Mariner.

The Mariners were their typical third in the AL West on May 14th, a game-and-a-half behind the Angels, with the World Series champion Houston Astros nestled in between. Seattle’s suddenly looked like another lost season. How could they stay close until Cano returned?

Only, they’ve gone far beyond staying close. After chasing Dallas Keuchel last night, the Mariners are in first place. In the first 20 games sans Cano, they are 15-5. That’s a .750 winning percentage. With Cano, they were 23-17, or .575.

Former Yankee teammate Mark Teixeira, now an ESPN analyst claimed he wasn’t surprised by the suspension.

Alex Rodriguez got popped by Biogenesis, and Melky [Cabrera, also with the Yankees for a time] got popped. They were best friends.

Cano accepted responsibility for the failed test although he claimed it was prescribed in the Dominican for a medical issue rather than to cheat the system. Nevertheless, it has to create a trust issue within the organisation. When he left New York, former hitting coach Kevin Long lamented his habit of not running to first on sure outs.

When you jog down the line, even if it doesn’t come into play 98% of the time, it creates a perception. But he just wouldn’t make that choice to run hard all the time.

Cano will be eligible to play again for the Mariners’ 121st game, on August 14th in Oakland, ten weeks from now, assuming the club don’t first send him down to the minors for a conditioning assignment. Will Scott Servais be eager to plug him right into the lineup if the Mariners are still rolling along atop the division? How could he ignore an elite power hitter? If the M’s begin to slide with Cano back in the clubhouse and the batting order, what then?

It’s difficult to sit a $240 million player. It’s even harder to trade him when he has a PED suspension on his record. Seattle managed to rid themselves of the original Alex Rodriguez before he went bad. Now, too late, they may have to divorce ARod’s protegé. That’s the Emerald City for you. It never rains but it pours.
