As the final weeks of the 2011 MLB betting season continue to wind down, there is still a lot to be determined in the American League. While the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox head into the weekend fighting for first place in the AL East with the loser in position to take the Wild Card, the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels are putting it all on the line in Arlington as the fight for first place in the AL West.

New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles

Saturday, 1:05 PM ET

The Yankees will turn to Ivan Nova once again on Saturday, and there is no reason not to like his chances at 13-4. Not only has he done a terrific job this season at keeping his ERA numbers down, but Nova has also won with consistency and provided a solid presence in the rotation behind ace CC Sabathia as AJ Burnett has continued to falter. New York will likely provide a ton of run support against an Orioles’ team that has been absolutely awful this season, and that should make this one an easy pick as the pinstripes attempt to close on Boston for first place.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Oakland Athletics @ Boston Red Sox

Saturday, 1:10 PM ET

While the Yankees are taking care of sports betting business on the road, the Fenway faithful will be on hand to watch as All Star Jon Lester does his thing against the Athletics. Lester is 13-6 this season with a 3.16 ERA, and has allowed just one earned run in each of his last two starts. Oakland will turn to 27-year old Guillermo Moscoso to counter Lester, and it might be appropriate to say that he could be in trouble against the Red Sox offense.

MLB Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox

Detroit Tigers @ Minnesota Twins

Saturday, 4:10 PM ET

The Tigers will move one step closer to locking up the AL Central when they send Cy Young award favorite Justin Verlander to the mound against Carl Pavano for the Twins. Verlander is 19-5 with a 2.28 ERA, and is arguably the biggest reason why Detroit is in first place in the division this season. Minnesota’s lineup has been devastated by injuries this season, and they won’t be able to survive this sports betting bonus contest.

MLB Betting Pick: Detroit Tigers

Los Angeles Angels @ Texas Rangers

Saturday, 8:05 PM ET

The most intriguing matchup of the weekend features the two teams fighting for first place in the AL West, as Texas looks to move one step closer to clinching if they could hold off the Angels in their three-game set. Saturday’s contest will see veteran Joel Pineiro get the call for Los Angeles against CJ Wilson for the Rangers, and it should provide one of those classic Saturday night games at Arlington. It’s a good thing that this game is scheduled for under the lights considering how hot it has been in Texas over the past few days, but that won’t help the Angels’ chances against a determined Rangers’ team.

MLB Betting Pick: Texas Rangers
