Top MLB Betting Picks of the Week – May 28th Edition

Posted by Derrick Harper on May 28, 2018 in

Major League Baseball is moving into the month of June. Two months down and 4 months to go in the regular season. What a season it has been so far. There are just 13 teams that you would consider without a chance at the postseason. That makes 17 teams for 10 spots. Things are going to be interesting as the postseason starts to draw closer. First is the All-Star Game. But, before we even get there – let’s look at the Top MLB Betting Picks of the Week for the final week of May and the first few days of June.

Top MLB Betting Picks of the Week – May 28th Edition

Philadelphia Phillies over Los Angeles Dodgers – Tuesday

Jake Arrieta gets a chance to pitch for the Philadelphia Phillies, and we have seen him against the Dodgers before. The Phillies are 8 games over .500 and moving right along in the National League East. That division has four teams over .500 and three teams contending. The Dodgers are sending Kenta Maeda, and that’s bad news for them. The Phillies seem to have the type of lineup that will give Maeda fits from start to finish. Take the Phillies on the road.

St. Louis Cardinals over Milwaukee Brewers – Wednesday

There has hardly been a start from a pitcher as hyped and exciting as this one for the St. Louis Cardinals. Alex Reyes is making his season debut in Milwaukee. Reyes ripped right through the minor leagues after missing all last season with an injury. He will take on Junior Guerra of the Brewers. Milwaukee can hit, but Reyes is ready to slow their offense down and put a kink in the National League Central plans.

Chicago Cubs over New York Mets – Thursday

Jose Quintana goes for the Chicago Cubs and is looking for his 6th win of the season. He will take on Jason Vargas of the New York Mets. Vargas has been terrible to start the season, and the Chicago offense could use a night of teeing off. Look for a well-pitched game from Quintana and a bunch of runs from the Cubs offense. When you are betting this MLB game on Thursday – take the Chicago Cubs over the New York Mets.

Boston Red Sox over Houston Astros – Friday

What a pitching matchup Friday. Chris Sale for the Boston Red Sox and Gerrit Cole for the Houston Astros. Two of the best pitchers in all of baseball. These two combined for a 10-2 record with a 2.00 earned run average.

The Red Sox should be one of your MLB Betting picks of the Week.

 

Look for Sale to get the best of Cole. Sale has nasty stuff and is going to be able to keep the free-swinging Astros offense off balance. Take the Red Sox behind Chris Sale on Saturday over the Astros.

Seattle Mariners over Tampa Bay Rays

Marco Gonzales is on the mound for Seattle and has been an interesting case study. Marco is getting better and is at home in this game. Home is where the Mariners are better at, and they should be able to grab a win on Saturday It’s Chris Archer, the best Rays pitcher, but look for Seattle to tee off on the Rays bullpen after Archer leaves the game. Take the Mariners on Saturday.

Best of luck with all your MLB betting. We are looking forward to the games this week, and have done our homework to place the best bets that are available. We hope you enjoyed our look at the Top MLB Picks of the Week, and are ready to take down the sportsbook. Until next week – Enjoy!
