2014 MLB Betting – Picks For Tuesday, July 8

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 7/7/2014 11:01:15 PM

There’s reason to believe that the New York Yankees are now in a very good position to win the American League East, while the Atlanta Braves have sorted out their problems for the time being in the National League East. Can these two teams continue on the right path?

Game 1: Baltimore Orioles @ Washington Nationals – Tuesday, July 8

The Washington Nationals are seeing the Atlanta Braves move forward in the National League East. The Braves just put together a nine-game winning streak before finally losing this past Sunday to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Nationals have to find a way to close the gap on the Braves in the week before the All-Star Break in Minneapolis. Washington does have the advantage of knowing that one of its better starting pitchers, Doug Fister, is on the mound in this game. Fister has a 2.93 ERA. He came from the American League, where he pitched the previous few seasons with the Detroit Tigers. Generally, the adjustment from the American League to the National League is a lot smoother than the reverse. Fister should be a very comfortable pitcher in general. Now, he will get tested by an American League lineup. However, since he’s seen the Orioles plenty of times when at Detroit, he should be able to have a game plan that can stop the Birds. Take the Nationals in this game for that very reason.

MLB Betting Pick: Washington

Game 2: New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians – Tuesday, July 8

The pitching matchup in this game is the Yankees’ hoped-for matchup, and not even because of who Cleveland has on the mound. The Indians are sending Trevor Bauer to the hill. Bauer has a 4.42 ERA, but he could have had a 3.32 ERA in this game and still been the underdog. Why is this so? The Yankees are sending their ace, Masahiro Tanaka, to the bump. Tanaka is in the top three as far as the American League Cy Young Award race is concerned. He has a 2.27 ERA. He’s pitched at least six innings in every start this season. This past Thursday against Minnesota, he gave up more than three earned runs for the first time all season. That’s not a misprint. Tanaka has been ridiculously consistent, and after a comparatively bad start, he should be ready to dominate again. Cleveland just doesn’t have an escape hatch here. The Yankees should win in Ohio.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Game 3: Atlanta Braves @ New York Mets – Tuesday, July 8

The Braves get to send one of their better starting pitchers, Julio Teheran, to the rubber in this one. Teheran has a very snappy 2.29 ERA. He has established a standard that is going to be very hard for New York starter Jacob deGrom to match. New York has been a largely feeble team this season, much like the previous few seasons. It would be a surprise if the Mets get off the mat and stop the red-hot Braves on Tuesday.

MLB Betting Pick: Atlanta
