The baseball pennant races are starting to heat up as the contenders are rising to the top. The sports betting world is watching all of the pennant battles to see which teams will wind up in the MLB playoff betting brackets. There are several games this week that have significant importance to the MLB playoffs and in deciding which teams will be left standing when the pennant races are over.

Tuesday August 9, 2011

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim @ New York Yankees

7:05 PM EST

The Angels and Yankees are both one game back of first place in their respective divisions. This entire series should contain some great baseball, but this opening game will be especially interesting. MLB betting experts are wondering who the Yankees will send to the mound to start this game as the Yankees have given no indication of who will take the mound. After losing two of three to the Boston Red Sox over the weekend, the Yankees are being very careful with every move they make. The Angels are putting ace Dan Haren on the mound for this game, and that could be some very bad news for the struggling Yankees.

Pick: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Wednesday August 10, 2011

Houston Astros @ Arizona Diamondbacks

9:40 PM EST

The Arizona Diamondbacks refuse to go away in the NL West. Arizona took full advantage of a 2-8 10-game stretch by the NL West leading San Francisco Giants to pull to within a half-game of the defending World Series champs for the NL West pennant. While the Giants are battling the persistent Pittsburgh Pirates, the Diamondbacks will take on the struggling Houston Astros. This is the chance that the Diamondbacks have been waiting for to take over sole possession of first place in the NL West pennant race.

Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks

Thursday August 11, 2011

Detroit Tigers @ Cleveland Indians

7:05 PM EST

This will be the MLB game of the week. After starting off looking like it was going to run away with the AL Central and possibly have one of the best records in baseball, the Cleveland Indians have come crashing back down to Earth and are now four games out of first place. The MLB baseball scores as of late have the Indians losing games in bunches, and the Detroit Tigers are starting to run away with the division. The struggling Fausto Carmona starts for the Indians in this game. He is 5-11 on the season, but the Indians hope that Carmona’s 1-1 record since returning from the 15-day DL is an indication that he has turned a corner and is ready to win games.
The Tigers will be sending staff ace Justin Verlander and his 16-5 record to the mound for this important game. The Tigers have won six of its last 10 games, but dropped a critical game to the Kansas City Royals over the weekend. Verlander is 8-2 in his last 10 starts, and has been averaging eight strikeouts per game in that stretch.

Pick: Detroit Tigers

Friday August 12, 2011

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Milwaukee Brewers

8:10 PM EST

The Pittsburgh Pirates are on a stretch where they have lost 10 of their last 10 games. The NL Central pennant was within reach just two weeks ago, but now the Pirates sit 10 games back of the division lead. The Pirates need to sweep this series to get back on their feet and get back in the NL Central pennant race. Paul Maholm is starting on the mound for Pittsburgh in this game, and that is only one of the many factors working against the Pirates in this important divisional game.

Pick: Milwaukee Brewers
