With the MLB betting season winding down, the race to the postseason is heating up with the Los Angeles Angels and Tampa Bay Rays doing what they can to make this interesting in the American League. With the National League races all but complete, the AL is where the spotlight will shine this weekend, with a few key matchups to pay attention.

New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays

Saturday, 1:07 PM ET

The Yankees have been wildly inconsistent this season, but a powerful offense has put them in position to clinch both the AL East and the AL pennant. New York has built a comfortable lead over second-place Boston as the Red Sox continue to struggle through the month of September, and can move even closer to securing home field advantage for the AL postseason with a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday. Bartolo Colon will get the call for New York against 21-year old Henderson Alvarez, and he should be in line to get back to .500 with his ninth sports betting decision.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Tampa Bay Rays @ Boston Red Sox

Saturday, 4:10 PM ET

A streak of seven wins in 10 games that included a three-game sweep of the Red Sox the last time these teams met has put Tampa Bay in contention for the AL Wild Card spot, but it will take an even better effort this weekend at Fenway Park for them to close the gap. That means that there will be sportsbook promo pressure on Jeff Niemann to provide a solid outing against Boston’s Jon Lester on Saturday. While the Rays have done an excellent job of closing the gap without much pressure on whether they succeed or not, they have now heightened expectations and could be due for a letdown against a Red Sox team that is far too talented to struggle the way that they have.
MLB Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox

Los Angeles Angels @ Baltimore Orioles

Saturday, 7:05 PM ET

While the Rays have come back to make things interesting in the Wild Card race, the Angels are barely staying alive in the West where they continue to chase the defending AL champion Rangers. Los Angeles had won seven of 10 entering play on Thursday night, but as long as Texas continues to win they will only lose more time. Regardless, all the Angels can focus on at this point is their schedule, and that includes a game they absolutely have to win on Saturday with Ervin Santana on the mound against the Orioles.
MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels

Texas Rangers @ Seattle Mariners

Saturday, 7:10 PM ET

The Rangers have shown their depth on both offense and in the rotation this season, and will look to finish the year off strong as they attempt to avenge last year’s World Series disappointment. Texas will turn to Colby Lewis on Saturday hoping that the veteran can provide another solid outing like his last, when he allowed just three runs over 7.1 innings to get his 12th win of the year. Lewis has been inconsistent, but as long as he can keep his ERA down in this game the Rangers’ bats should be able to do enough to get him win No. 13 as they go up against Seattle rookie Anthony Vasquez.
