Top NL Teams Meet Leading Into the Weekend

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/4/2013 8:22:30 PM

Friday will prove to be very busy day for MLB fans and for the online sports book experts as several games will feature top NL teams who will be looking to improve their positions in the standings. There are still some surprises in the NL standings that the online betting experts are trying to figure out and everyone hopes that Friday gives a clearer picture of what is to come for the rest of the season.

Friday – San Diego Padres @ Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals and San Diego Padres are both chasing the top spots in their respective divisions, but the Padres have put themselves much closer to the top spot in the NL West than the Nationals have in the NL East. Even though San Diego is in fourth place in the NL West, they only trail the division leading Colorado Rockies by three and a half games. The Nationals are in second in the NL East, but trail the Atlanta Braves by seven games. The Nationals will send Gio Gonzalez to the mound to see if he can improve on his 5-3 record. The Padres will send Andrew Cashner to the mound, who is 4-1 in his last 10 starts.

Pick: San Diego Padres

Friday – Atlanta Braves @ Philadelphia Phillies

Just when the Philadelphia Phillies pick up momentum and start moving closer to the top of the NL East, the Phillies fall apart and take two steps back for every step they took forward. The sports betting experts are not sure what to make of the Phillies, but this is yet another season where the Phillies keep making significant changes to their starting pitching rotation just to find a winning combination. The Atlanta Braves continue to move forward in their usual, confident way and will send veteran Tim Hudson to the mound to face off against Philly’s Cliff Lee. Lee has really found his groove this season with a 9-2 record, but the Phillies still cannot score runs in support and that will continue to be a problem.

Pick: Atlanta Braves

Friday – Colorado Rockies @ Arizona Diamondbacks

It is still a bit difficult to believe that a game between the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks a couple of weeks from the All-Star game is a battle for first place in the NL West, but it is. The Diamondbacks lead the Rockies by two and a half games, which makes this series extremely important to Colorado. The Rockies will pull out all of the stops as they send reliable starter Jorge De La Rosa to the mound for this game. His 8-4 record is even more impressive when you realize that he is 5-1 in his last 10 starts. The importance of this game cannot be overstated, but the Rockies are looking to break a three-game losing streak by beating an Arizona town that is 2-8 in its last 10 games.

Pick: Colorado Rockies
