With another Boston Red Sox loss to the lowly Baltimore Orioles, the American League Wild Card race remains the only interesting MLB betting spotlight to keep an eye on heading in to the final weekend of the regular season. The fact that the Tampa Bay Rays struggled against the New York Yankees left the gap at 2.5 games in the Wild Card race, but the hunters have the chance to close on the Red Sox this week as they return home for a favorable matchup.

Saturday, 4:10 PM ET

After watching the Rays struggle as the Yankees locked up their division, the Red Sox now make the trip to New York hoping to avoid the same embarrassment handed to them by the lowly Orioles this past week. Boston lost three of a possible four games including a 6-4 loss on Wednesday night in a game that they led 4-1 at one point, and are very fortunate that the Yankees took care of Tampa Bay. New York has already locked up the AL East title but has not confirmed its playoff rotation, which makes this an important sports betting start for AJ Burnett at home against Boston’s Tim Wakefield.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Seattle Mariners @ Texas Rangers

Saturday, 4:10 PM ET

The Rangers will not be able to close the gap between them and New York, but they should be able to lock up the AL West title as they host the Mariners this weekend. Texas faces a tough test against Felix Hernandez on Saturday, but with Alexei Ogando on the mound they should have a strong chance as long as they can punch in some runs.

Toronto Blue Jays @ Tampa Bay Rays

Saturday, 7:10 PM ET
The Rays fought hard to remain in contention despite such a relatively small payroll, and while they may not have enough left in the tank to clinch a Wild Card spot, they will throw everything that they have at Toronto to close that gap this week. Tampa Bay will turn to the hot hand in veteran Jeff Niemann on Saturday to counter the Blue Jays’ ace Ricky Romero, and if he can parlay his performance from consecutive wins the Rays should be able to take advantage.

Oakland Athletics @ Los Angeles Angels

Saturday, 10:10 PM ET

Although they will continue to go bass fishing for that top spot in the AL West this weekend, it will come down to a case of too little, too late for the Angels, who send the undefeated Jerome Williams to the mound on Saturday against the Athletics’ Guillermo Moscoso. Los Angeles has gone just 5-5 over their past 10 games entering this series, but they should be able to salvage a couple of key sportsbook promo home games to go out on a high note.
