2014 MLB Betting – Picks For Friday, July 4

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 7/3/2014 10:45:22 PM

There’s a feeling that as the Major League Baseball season moves along, some teams are running out of time to make a move. That sense is acutely felt for the Cincinnati Reds and Texas Rangers, and it’s on the verge of being felt in St. Louis with the Cardinals.

Game 1: Milwaukee Brewers @ Cincinnati Reds – Friday, July 4

The Reds were part of the National League playoffs last year. They scratched their way to the National League wild card game against the Pittsburgh Pirates despite a few holes in their batting order and a pitching staff that wasn’t always on-point. This year, the Reds have struggled even more at the plate, and that’s why this season has been an uphill battle. The Reds know that the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates, the same two teams they battled for the postseason last year, are part of the mix in the National League Central. Yet, what’s different this year is that all three teams are chasing someone else. The Milwaukee Brewers have bashed the baseball this season, en route to a strong record of 51-35 through 86 games. If the Reds, currently seven games back and in fourth place in the division, really want to get back in the hunt, they have to be able to win this series. They don’t have to sweep it, just win it. However, with Milwaukee veteran Kyle Lohse going to the hill, the Reds will face a tough customer. Their own pitcher, Alfredo Simon, has been very good this season, but Milwaukee has more ways in which to score runs. Take the Brewers in this situation.

MLB Betting Pick: Milwaukee

Game 2: Texas Rangers @ New York Mets – Friday, July 4

These teams are both suffering, and it’s surprising to see it from the Rangers. Texas has fallen 10 games below .500 for the first time since 2007. The Rangers have been decimated by injuries and are therefore in a position where answers are just not that easy to come by. Texas also can’t like its prospects in this game because it is sending one of its weaker pitchers, Nick Tepesch, to the bump. Tepesch just isn’t the kind of pitcher who is cut out to lead a team out of the deficit the Rangers face as far as their season is concerned. New York starter Jonathon Niese is in a good position to outpitch Tepesch on Friday. Go with the Mets in the start of a series that’s going to be hard to predict in general.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Mets

Game 3: Miami Marlins @ St. Louis Cardinals – Friday, July 4

The Cardinals are one of the best organizations in baseball, but they have been several steps behind the Brewers the whole season. They have to be able to change the tone of the season as July gets going. This is a fairly even pitching matchup. Florida starter Nathan Eovaldi has a 3.71 ERA, and St. Louis starter Lance Lynn checks in with a 3.38 ERA. That’s not too much of a gap. If unsure, expect the Cardinals to make a charge at the Brewers, helped by a win here.

MLB Betting Pick: St. Louis
