Rangers at Athletics Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/13/2013
Do you remember the last time the Texas Rangers and Oakland A's were on the same field? That would be Oct. 3, 2012, at O.co Coliseum. The A's completed a stunning three-game sweep with a 12-5 victory that won Oakland the AL West title -- a division the Rangers had led practically all season and still led by five games with 11 remaining. Oakland was 13 games behind the Rangers at one point in the season. The A's also were down 5-1 at one point in that game.
Cubs at Nationals Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/11/2013
When Theo Epstein left the Boston Red Sox for the Chicago Cubs in October 2011, he knew he had a long rebuilding process in front of him on Chicago's North Side. The Cubs had lost 91 games in that '11 season, had a barren farm system and some very onerous contracts, specifically that belonging to Alfonso Soriano.
Brewers at Reds Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/10/2013
The NL Central-rival Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds will see a lot of each other the rest of the season as Friday night's series opener at Great American Ball Park is the first of 19 meetings this year. Somewhat hard to believe they haven't played in the first six weeks or so.
Braves at Giants Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Dave Schwab - 5/9/2013
Two of the best teams in the National League will kick off an extended four-game weekend series this Thursday night when the Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants square off at AT&T Park. Game 1 is set for a 10:15 p.m. (ET) start, and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Tigers at Nationals Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/8/2013
The oddsmakers at Sportsbook.ag agree that the Detroit Tigers are the World Series favorites, currently at +600. What they don't agree on is which possible opponent for the Tigers is the most likely. Currently Tigers-Braves, Tigers-Giants and Tigers-Nationals are all +1800. Atlanta, San Francisco and Washington are all at +1000 to win the World Series as well.
Cardinals at Cubs Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Dave Schwab - 5/7/2013
The St. Louis Cardinals will pay a visit to Wrigley Field this week for a quick two-game series against the NL Central Division rival Chicago Cubs starting with Game 1 this Tuesday night. This clash is set to get underway at 8:05 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Marlins at Padres Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/6/2013
It's the series we've been waiting all baseball season for: Marlins at Padres in a huge three-game set that begins Monday night at Petco Park. Yeah, not so much. But anyone can preview the big games in MLB -- it takes talent and determination to dig up relevant betting facts on two dregs of the league. Hey, this game could determine the top pick in the 2014 draft! One never knows.
Dodgers at Giants Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/3/2013
The Dodgers and Giants, arguably the biggest rivals in the National League and the co-+140 NL West favorites at Sportsbook.ag, begin a three-game series on Friday night in L.A.'s first visit of the season to AT&T Park. Neither leads the division, with San Francisco a game behind the first-place Rockies and Los Angeles in fourth and 3.5 games back.
Cardinals at Brewers Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Dave Schwab - 5/2/2013
The St. Louis Cardinals kick off an extended four-game weekend series this Thursday night when they head to Miller Park to face the Central Division rival Milwaukee Brewers. Game 1 is set to get underway at 8:10 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Astros at Yankees Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 5/1/2013
I'm really rather bummed out that the Houston Astros and Miami Marlins don't play this year in interleague play for the crown of worst team in baseball. At least the Marlins have Giancarlo Stanton (well, he's on the DL now); Houston might be the most no-name team in recent baseball history. Do you realize the Astros have not been favored in a game yet? The closest they have come was as essentially a “pick'em” for an April 24 home game against Seattle in which Houston won 10-3. The Astros have won two series all year, and the Mariners were the victim in both.
Red Sox at Blue Jays Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Dave Schwab - 4/30/2013
The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays will meet for the second time this season at the Rogers Centre starting this Tuesday night in the first of a three-game AL East showdown. Game 1 is slated to get underway at 7:07 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Giants at Diamondbacks Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 4/29/2013
It was always expected that the San Francisco Giants would struggle offensively this year. They weren't a great offensive team a year ago on the way to winning their second World Series in three years. The Giants won largely because of their pitching -- well, NL MVP Buster Posey certainly deserves some credit -- and it was presumed that group again would have to carry the team in 2013 after it didn't add any big bats via free agency or trade this offseason. However, the Giants enter Monday's series opener in Arizona at 13-12 and on an MLB-high five-game losing streak largely because their pitching is struggling.
Rays at White Sox Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 4/27/2013
The Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago White Sox are in the same boat entering Saturday's Game 3 of their series at U.S. Cellular Field on Chicago's South Side. Now, of course, the franchises as a whole aren't in the same boat. The Rays are on a shoestring payroll (around $57 million) in a dilapidated stadium but have what is considered perhaps the best front office in the game. They are rich in young talent throughout the organization, especially pitching. Tampa Bay should be good for a while despite financial limitations.
Braves at Tigers Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 4/26/2013
The Braves and Tigers franchises have never met in the World Series, but as things currently stand that's the Fall Classic matchup oddsmakers favor this October. The two teams open a three-game interleague series in the Motor City on Friday night -- they haven't played since 2010, and this will only be Atlanta's second-ever visit to Detroit (2004).
Blue Jays at Yankees Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Dave Schwab - 4/25/2013
The Toronto Blue Jays will make their first visit of the season to Yankees Stadium for an extended four-game weekend set against New York starting Thursday night. Game 1 of this AL East showdown is slated to get underway at 7:10 p.m. (ET), and it will be broadcast nationally on the MLB Network.
Brewers at Padres Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 4/24/2013
Milwaukee opened a three-game series in San Diego on Monday night -- and six-game West Coast trip -- with a 7-1 blowout of the Padres for its eighth straight win after a 2-8 start. With Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo on the mound for Tuesday's Game 2, things were looking good for Milwaukee to win No. 9 in a row for the first time in 10 years -- which was also the last time it had a double-digit winning streak, a possibility on Wednesday.
Dodgers at Mets Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Dave Schwab - 4/23/2013
The Los Angeles Dodgers will pay its first visit of the season to Citi Field this Tuesday night for the first of three games against the New York Mets. Game 1 is set to get underway at 7:10 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
Cardinals at Nationals Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 4/22/2013
The last time the St. Louis Cardinals were on the field at Nationals Park, it was one of the most memorable wins in team and baseball history. In the deciding Game 5 of last year's National League Division Series, the wild-card Cardinals were down 6-0 to the NL East champion Nats after just three innings. Washington still led 7-5 entering the top of the ninth and closer Drew Storen was a strike away -- twice -- from finishing the series.
Athletics at Rays Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Alan Matthews - 4/19/2013
I don't know if you've seen the movie "Moneyball" about Oakland A's GM Billy Beane, but it's one of the best sports movies ever made. Beane caused a statistical revolution in the game with his use of statistical analytics when determining which players to sign, but, while successful, it still never got Oakland an AL pennant. Could that change this year?
Braves at Pirates Picks and MLB Betting Odds
by Dave Schwab - 4/18/2013
The Atlanta Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates will get an early jump on the weekend when the two kick off an extended four-game series at PNC Park this Thursday night. Game time is set for 7:05 p.m. (ET), and it will be available on MLB Extra Innings.
