The first MLB betting weekend in September means that the postseason races are beginning to tighten up, and with a couple of divisions still up for grabs it will be interesting to see how things play out in the rivalry games coming up. In the American League, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees continue to fight for the pennant, while the defending AL champion Texas Rangers are looking to become part of that conversation once again. Meanwhile in the National League, the defending World Series champions are battling for their division, but this year they have become the hunted.

Saturday, 1:05 PM ET

The power in the Yankees’ order has managed to keep them in the hunt for a playoff spot, but after Wednesday’s loss to the Boston Red Sox they still haven’t proven their merit against the consensus sports betting World Series favorites. New York will look to regroup at home this weekend with a visit from the Blue Jays, and while Toronto has been very inconsistent so far this year, the pinstripes will have to be careful not to underestimate their potential. Veteran Bartolo Colon will get the call against the Blue Jays’ Ricky Romero Saturday, and the Yankees’ offense will need a big performance to get through.

Texas Rangers @ Boston Red Sox

Saturday, 4:10 PM ET

Despite a couple of losses the Red Sox have had the Yankees’ number all year, and that is why they are now in the driver seat to lock up the division, pennant, and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The bigger picture has Boston and New York alone at the top of the pennant race, with the Rangers six games back heading into this series. Texas will go looking for that top spot this weekend as they look to close the gap between them and first place, but they will need more from Colby Lewis on Saturday after he allowed 12 earned runs combined through his past two starts. Erik Bedard gets the call for Boston, and though he hasn’t been much better, he did look good in his last start.

Arizona Diamondbacks @ San Francisco Giants

Saturday, 9:05 PM ET

A year ago at this time it was the Giants that chased down the San Diego Padres for the division in the final weeks of the regular season. Fast-forward 12 months and it is the Diamondbacks that have blown past the defending World Series champions, and looking for the same type of playoff success that San Francisco had a year ago. A nine-game winning streak pushed Arizona up to six games head of the Giants for first in the NL West, and with the Wild Card out of reach the only hope for San Francisco is through the division. Ace Tim Lincecum will get the call against Joe Saunders on Saturday, representing their best sports betting bonus chance to gain some ground in the weekend series.
