As we enter the final stretch of the 2011 MLB betting season, the focus will be on the division leaders as they look to close out their year and make it into the postseason. There will be a number of crucial games early this week with some of those division leaders facing some tough tests, as the playoff races intensify with the MLB trade deadline now in the rearview mirror.

St. Louis Cardinals @ Milwaukee Brewers

Tuesday, 8:10 PM ET

The National League Central remains wide open with the Cardinals, Brewers, and Pittsburgh Pirates all jockeying for position at the top. This series will represent a crucial turn for whichever team can take control, and with Shaun Marcum on the mound for Milwaukee Tuesday they get the edge for this game. Marcum will throw against Jaime Garcia for the Cardinals, giving the Brewers the edge in both pitching and hitting.

MLB Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers

Arizona Diamondbacks @ San Francisco Giants

Tuesday, 10:15 PM ET

The Diamondbacks were able to pull to within two games of the top spot in the NL West after the defending World Series champions dropped three straight games over the weekend. Arizona has been solid on the road this season but will be in tough if they want to take the division from the Giants in their own house, especially with Tim Lincecum getting the start for San Francisco on Tuesday. Lincecum will throw against Daniel Hudson with the division lead on the line, and he should be counted on to get the job done in a crucial sports betting situation.

MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants

Texas Rangers @ Detroit Tigers

Wednesday, 7:05 PM ET

The Rangers and Tigers both entered this series with two game leads in their respective divisions, and holding on to those leads will come down to much more than this series. But in a potential playoff preview gaining a psychological edge will be key to both teams, and the game will feature a solid pitching matchup with Matt Harrison getting the call against Doug Fister. Fister has not won a game since late May, and Detroit has managed to clinch just a single win in his past 10 starts. On the other hand, Harrison has looked incredible over the past month, leading the Rangers to five straight wins while allowing one or fewer runs in three of the five starts.

MLB Betting Pick: Texas Rangers

New York Yankees @ Chicago White Sox

Wednesday, 8:00 PM ET

The Yankees surprised everyone by electing not to make a move at the MLB trade deadline, which means that they will look internally to make up the difference between them and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox. New York will hand the ball to AJ Burnett for Wednesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox, and he will need to be better than he has been to prevent his losing streak from reaching three-straight. Burnett will get the call against Gavin Floyd for the White Sox. Floyd is red-hot, having allowed just two earned runs over a span of three straight wins over the past couple of sportsbook promo weeks, but may be due for a letdown performance against a powerful offense.
