Posted by Aaron . on July 14, 2016 in

With Major League Baseball back in action this weekend, it’s time to start looking at the Against the Spread picks and also the Straight Up picks that MLB betting fans should be taking a look at. There are going to be some fantastic games in Major League Baseball, but the Straight Up picks to bet on are as follows.

Let’s Run Down the Top MLB ATS & SU Picks For This Weekend

Nationals vs. Pirates

Bet on the Washington Nationals on Friday over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Nationals are sending Stephen Strasburg to the mound. Strasburg has yet to be beat this season, and that should continue. The Washington Nationals are looking to start the second half hot, and that they will do. Bet the Nationals -144 over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Athletics vs. Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays start the weekend on the road at the Oakland Athletics. Marcus Stroman is on the mound for the Toronto Blue Jays. Stroman has not been super sharp this season, with an earned run average nearly 5. The Oakland Athletics are going with Rich Hill. Hill, is seeking his 10th win of the season, and has a great earned run average of 2.25. The bet for this game is the home team, behind Rich Hill. Take the Oakland Athletics -132 over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Rays vs. Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles are on the road at the Tampa Bay Rays to start the second half of the season. The Baltimore Orioles are sending Chris Tillman on the road at Matt Moore. While Moore has not been awful, the Tampa Bay Rays as a team have been. The Orioles need all the wins they can get to stay at the top of the American League East. Bet the Baltimore Orioles -122 over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Twins vs. Indians

Trevor Bauer is seeking his 8th win of the season for the Cleveland Indians, and they are on the road at the Minnesota Twins. Tyler Duffey is on the hill for the Twins, and he is 5-6 on the season. Look for Bauer to continue pitching good baseball in this game. The final bet for Saturday is the road team; Cleveland Indians -155 over the woeful Minnesota Twins.

Cardinals vs. Marlins

The first game on Sunday to bet Straight Up is the St. Louis Cardinals over the Miami Marlins. On Sunday, the Cardinals will send Michael Wacha to the mound. One thing you can predict in the second half of the season, the St. Louis rotation will be more consistent than the first half. This is an easy bet for me – the Cardinals -155 over the Miami Marlins.

Red Sox vs. Yankees

The final game to bet on Straight Up for the weekend is the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox and Yankees get together for a three game series. This is the ESPN Sunday Night Game of the Week, and it’s in New York. Despite that, David Price has been better as of late, and is seeking his 10th win of the season. Masahiro Tanaka will take the hill for the Yankees. He is 6-2 on the season, and in 117 innings thrown, he has struck out 93. The Boston Red Sox are going to win this game, with a great outing out of David Price. The bet for this game is the Boston Red Sox -125 over the New York Yankees.
