MLB Picks: Toronto Blue Jays Futures Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 2/5/2014
Pitchers and catchers start reporting to camps this week, which has to be a great thing to hear for those stuck in the frozen northern parts of this country -- did the NFL luck out with the Super Bowl or what? A winter storm hit the greater New York area the morning after. Perhaps NFL officials will remember that now that other cold-weather cities are asking to host the game.
Free Baseball Picks: Angels at Rangers Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/26/2013
The Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers will close out the regular season with a four-game set at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington starting this Thursday night. Game 1 is set to get underway at 8:05 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Free Baseball Picks: Dodgers at Giants Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/24/2013
The Los Angeles Dodgers will be looking to build some momentum heading into the postseason when they square off against the NL West-rival San Francisco Giants this Tuesday night at AT&T Park in the first of a three-game set. This series opener is set to get underway at 10:15 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Baseball Picks: Reds at Pirates Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 9/20/2013
The Washington Nationals appear to have very much motivated the Cincinnati Reds. The Nats made a bit of a push to catch Cincinnati for the NL's second wild-card spot, but now it seems a lock that Cincinnati will claim one of those two wild cards, with Pittsburgh the other. And I wouldn't want to play the Reds right now. They enter Friday's big series opener at the Pirates having won three straight and nine of 13. Cincinnati has Johnny Cueto back and has perhaps the most unique weapon on baseball in speedster Billy Hamilton.
Baseball Picks: Indians at Royals Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 9/18/2013
I must admit that when Cleveland Indians ace and all-star Justin Masterson left his Sept. 2 game against Baltimore with what the team called at first sore ribs but then acknowledged was an oblique injury, I didn't believe the Tribe had enough pitching to grab one of the AL's two wild-card spots. What I didn't expect was how lousy Texas and Tampa Bay were going to play since then, and now it appears the Indians have a great shot to reach the playoffs for the first time since losing a seven-game ALCS to Boston in 2007.
Baseball Picks: Phillies at Nationals Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 9/14/2013
No division has ever had three teams make the playoffs -- it wasn't even possible until last year's addition of the second wild-card spot. It seemed like a lock that the National League Central would be the first with St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. And it's still pretty likely. However, the Washington Nationals are finally starting to play to expectations and are just 5.5 games back of the second wild card currently held by the Reds entering this weekend's series in Philadelphia.
Baseball Picks: Cubs at Pirates Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/12/2013
The Chicago Cubs will try and put a kink into the Pittsburgh Pirates NL Central title plans when the two division foes clash this Thursday night in Game 1 of a four-game weekend series at PNC Park. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. (ET), and the game will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Baseball Picks: Brewers at Cardinals Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/10/2013
The Milwaukee Brewers will try and put a crimp into the St. Louis Cardinals’ division title plans when the two NL Central foes kick off a three-game series at Busch Stadium this Tuesday night. Game 1 is set to get underway at 8:15 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Baseball Picks: Rangers at Angels Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 9/7/2013
It seems the Texas Rangers are putting the cart before the horse a little bit. You see, the altered their rotation this week, essentially to assure that ace Yu Darvish would be available for any playoff opener. The postseason schedule was announced this week with the NL wild-card game on Oct. 1 and the AL on Oct. 2. Will Texas play in that for the second year in a row?
Baseball Picks: Red Sox at Yankees Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/5/2013
The Boston Red Sox continue their quest to lock up the AL East Division title this Thursday night in the first of a four-game series against their bitter rival, the New York Yankees, at Yankee Stadium. The first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. (ET), and the game will be broadcast nationally on the MLB Network.
Baseball Picks: Rangers at Athletics Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/3/2013
The Texas Rangers and the Oakland Athletics continue a crucial three-game series this Tuesday night at the Oakland County Coliseum in a showdown that will have a major impact on a tight AL West title race. Game 2 of this divisional clash is set to get underway at 10:05 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Baseball Picks: Cardinals at Pirates Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 8/31/2013
The Pittsburgh Pirates are clearly going all-in, and kudos to them for making a trade with the Mets earlier this week for outfielder Marlon Byrd and catcher John Buck. Byrd will vastly upgrade Pittsburgh's right-field production. Before Byrd arrived, the Pirates' nine different right fielders used combined to produce a .232 average this season (last in NL) with 12 homers (13th in NL) and 44 RBI. Byrd promptly hit a three-run homer in his debut against Milwaukee on Wednesday.
Baseball Picks: Orioles at Red Sox Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 8/29/2013
The Baltimore Orioles and the Boston Red Sox will battle it out one more time on Thursday night at Fenway Park in Game 3 of this AL East clash. This contest is set to get underway at 7:10 p.m. (ET), and the game will be broadcast nationally on the MLB Network.
Baseball Picks: Orioles at Red Sox Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 8/27/2013
The Baltimore Orioles will look to make up some ground in the AL East title race this week when they square off against the first-place Boston Red Sox in a crucial three-game series at Fenway Park. Tuesday night’s series opener is slated to get underway at 7:10 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Baseball Picks: Yankees at Rays Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 8/24/2013
I really wish that Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster hadn't plunked the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez on Sunday night. I guarantee you that many in baseball were happy that Dempster plunked the cheating A-Rod, but teammate David Ortiz had this to say: "That pitch woke up a monster in the Yankees' team at that moment. You saw how the game ended up. CC (Sabathia) was throwing 91 (mph) and started throwing 96. Alex later hit one way out there. You're talking about a good team that you can't wake up."
Baseball Picks: Athletics at Orioles MLB Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 8/23/2013
It's now late August, so I think it's fair to call a series "huge" if it deserves that moniker, and Oakland's visit to Baltimore this weekend for three games definitely is huge in the wild-card race. I have given up on the A's winning the AL West over the Rangers. They currently hold down the second wild-card spot behind Tampa Bay. The Orioles are three games behind the A's, so we could have a deadlock by Sunday afternoon should Baltimore sweep.
MLB Picks: Braves at Cardinals Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 8/22/2013
For the next four days starting with Thursday’s nights clash, the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals will battle it out at Busch Stadium in a showdown between two of the best teams in the National League. Game 1 is set to get underway at 8:15 p.m. (ET), and it will be broadcast nationally on the MLB Network.
MLB Picks: Indians at Angels Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 8/21/2013
Major League Baseball's addition of a second wild-card spot in each league has definitely kept more teams in the playoff hunt deeper into the season -- the Washington Nationals, for example, just traded for Cubs outfielder David DeJesus despite the fact they are nine games out of a wild-card spot. Unfortunately, the addition of that second wild-card spot has also taken much of the suspense out of the trade deadline because teams are now hanging onto players because they think they can earn that second spot.
MLB Picks: White Sox at Royals Odds and Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 8/20/2013
The Chicago White Sox will try and play the role of spoiler when they face the AL Central rival Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night in the first of a three-game set at Kauffman Stadium. This Game 1 clash slated to get underway at 8:10 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
MLB Picks: Dodgers at Marlins Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 8/19/2013
Monday's series opener between the Dodgers and Marlins is a total mismatch, at least on paper. Los Angeles Is unbelievably hot right now. The Dodgers entered Sunday's series finale in Philadelphia having won 19 of their past 20 road games and winners of 42 of their past 50 games overall. It's the best 50-game stretch in the majors since the 1942 Cardinals had the same record (and won the World Series).
