Pressure, Lack Of Pressure Playing Key Role In Late Season MLB Betting

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 9/26/2014 10:23:56 PM

The MLB regular season is coming to a close and while teams like the Toronto Blue Jays have been eliminated from playoff contention the lack of pressure might be helping as they have picked up their play of late while a Wild Card contender like the Seattle Mariners has struggled. Here is a quick look at four games that you should considering locking a play in for Saturday night around the majors.

Baltimore Orioles @ Toronto Blue Jays

Saturday, 4:07 PM ET

Any Blue Jays’ fan will point out a number of instances where their team has blown opportunities that would have had them in the playoff hunt at this point in the season so when they took care of business against the Mariners at home this week it was that much more bittersweet. The lack of pressure has had a positive effect on this Toronto team and that makes them a quality play at home against a Baltimore team that has already clinched the AL East. JA Happ is coming off an excellent performance in a 14-2 win over Seattle and he has posted a 3.12 ERA in three starts versus the Orioles this season. Baltimore won’t field its full lineup and the Blue Jays have added motivation at home.

Tampa Bay Rays @ Cleveland Indians

Saturday, 6:05 PM ET

The Indians won’t catch Kansas City and Oakland for one of the two AL Wild Card spots but they have an excellent chance to finish strong as they host the Rays this weekend. Corey Kluber has put together an outstanding season with four-straight wins pushing his record to 17-9 with a 2.53 ERA. Kluber has gone at least seven innings in each of the four-straight victories and should be in position to add another as the Cleveland bats beat up on Alex Colome, who gave up four earned in one inning of work against the Chicago White Sox in his last appearance.

Oakland Athletics @ Texas Rangers

Saturday, 8:05 PM ET

Oakland’s fall from grace has been well documented but they should have no problem building some momentum for the postseason against the worst team in the AL. Jeff Samardzija put together seven quality innings of work in an 8-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels in his last start and while his play with the Athletics hasn’t been as good as expected he should be able to put together another strong performance against Texas.

Los Angeles Angels @ Seattle Mariners

Saturday, 9:10 PM ET

The Mariners allowed any chance they had at the wild card to slip from their grasp against Toronto and now they have to deal with the best team in the majors. The good news is that the Angels won’t field all of their starters as they wait for the postseason to begin and that includes allowing Cory Rasmus to make just his sixth start of the season. James Paxton is coming off a couple of rough starts for Seattle but keep an eye on the game day lineup that Los Angeles plays and you will get a better idea of whether to go ahead with taking the Mariners at home.
