Saturday is Important to Many Playoff-Minded MLB Teams

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 7/7/2013 7:30:46 PM

The betting world is keeping a close eye on the MLB teams on the playoff bubble as the weekend quickly approaches. There are several teams that are trying to establish some momentum heading into the All-Star break that they hope to sustain as they start the second half of the season. The sports betting experts know how important each game is as this key part of the MLB season approaches.

Saturday – Minnesota Twins @ Toronto Blue Jays

It really looked like the Toronto Blue Jays had turned things around after a horrible start and were heading towards a potential AL wild card spot. But after going 3-7 in the last 10 games, the Jays are no closer to the playoffs than they were a few months ago. In this game against the Twins, the Jays are hoping to get back on the winning track and back into the playoff hunt. The Twins are actually closer to the AL Central lead than the Jays are to the AL East pennant and Minnesota could put itself into the playoff discussion if it can string some wins together. With an improving R.A. Dickey on the mound for the Jays, Toronto holds an advantage in this game.

Pick: Toronto Blue Jays

Saturday – Detroit Tigers @ Cleveland Indians

New Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has really impressed the online betting experts by getting the Indians into a brawl with Detroit for the AL Central pennant. The thing is that the Indians and Tigers keep pulling away from the rest of the AL Central and turning the pennant race into a two-team affair. The Indians only trail the Tigers by a game and that makes this game for the AL Central lead. If the Indians win, look for Cleveland to build off the momentum and start stringing together wins that will put the pennant in jeopardy for Detroit. If the Tigers win, then Detroit has a great chance to put some distance between itself and the rest of the division.

Pick: Detroit Tigers

Saturday – Chicago White Sox @ Tampa Bay Rays

Neither White Sox nor the Rays are so far out of their respective division battles that they can be considered out of it completely. Chicago and Tampa Bay can also do their best to battle for one of the AL wild card spots that looks like will be up for grabs in the second half of the season. Chicago’s Chris Sale was a sensation last year, but he has been struggling this season with a 5-7 record. But his 2.79 ERA shows that he is not getting the run support he needs. Tampa Bay ace Matt Moore takes the mound for this game and he should have more than enough to shut down the White Sox and deny Sale the runs he needs for a win.

Pick: Tampa Bay Rays
