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.

Free Winning MLB Predictions and Odds for 2016: MLB Playoff picture rounding into form as we come down the stretch of the regular season.

It has been an exciting and profitable season at Charliessports.com. The playoffs are on the horizon, and things are heating up in both the American and National League.

The defending World Champions Kansas City Royals are all but out of the “RACE FOR OCTOBER.”

Kansas City is third in the American League Central Division, 9 and a half games out of the lead. Kansas City is chasing the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers.

Cleveland looks like they will represent the division but Detroit is just seven games back in the standings.

The Texas Rangers also has a nine and a half game lead in the American League West Division. Last season’s darlings Houston Astros are in a second-place tie with Seattle.

Houston didn’t get a dominating pitching performance from their “ACE” Daniel Keuchel this season. Keuchel did a masterful job leading the Astros to the ALCS in 2015.

The most disappointing team in the AL West are the Los Angeles Angels who will finish last in the division with one of the highest payrolls in Major League Baseball.

Management in Anaheim has their work cut out and will make some offseason moves to improve the roster.

The American League East is the most competitive division in all of the baseball. Boston is on top with a three-game lead over both Baltimore and Toronto.

The Red Sox have one of the most dangerous batting orders in the division. The Ageless one, David Ortiz “BIG POPPY” leads the team in hitting. The “BOSOX” have also straightened out their pitching rotation, something that has haunted them since the departure of Pedro Martinez.

Toronto also has a formidable batting lineup, but pitching has been suspect, down the stretch.

The Baltimore Orioles spent most of the regular season at the top but are now in a dogfight.

The National League East Division is all but in the bag for the Washington Nationals. The New York Mets and Miami Marlins are still in the wild card race with New York holding the edge in the National League.

Miami doesn’t have much room for error as we enter the stretch run of the 2016 season.

The Chicago Cubs are the most dominating team in all of Major League Baseball and holds the best record with ninety-five wins this season.

Manager Joe Madden has fans in the “WINDY CITY” believing the curse will soon be over.

The St.Louis Cardinals are in jeopardy of missing the playoffs for the first time in quite some time, but they are still in the race for a wildcard spot.

The Pittsburgh Pirates will most likely have to wait until next season, All-Star Center Fielder Andrew McCutchen had a bad season.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants are in a battle for supremacy in the NL West; the Dodgers hold a five-game lead, going into the final ten games of the regular season.

However, San Francisco has a few more games against the division leading Dodgers. The rest of the National League would love to see San Francisco eliminated from the postseason.

The Giants seem to thrive in October.
