Top MLB Betting Matchups, Picks & Predictions for Thursday

New York Mets vs. San Diego Padres

The final game of the series between two bad  teams in San Diego. The New York Mets are 46-51 on the season, third place in the National League East. The Mets are using rookie Chris Flexen in this game. He is making his Major League Baseball debut in this game. For the San Diego Padres, they are countering with Luis Perdomo. Perdomo is 4-5 on the season with a 4.71 earned run average. He needs 8.1 innings to reach 100 on the season. Perdomo has struck out 73 batters, while walking just 35 in 2017. Look for San Diego to get the job done at home in this game. We are betting the Padres to take down the Mets rookie pitcher.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. St. Louis Cardinals

The first of a four game series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. The Arizona Diamondbacks have been a pleasant surprise out of the National League West. the Diamondbacks are 57-42 heading into Tuesday’s affair. The Diamondbacks are throwing Zack Godley in this game. Godley is 3-4 on the season with a 3.32 earned run average. Godley has struck out 84 batters in 81.1 innings. For the Cardinals, Adam Wainwright was scheduled to pitch, but he was placed on the disabled list. It appears St. Louis will use Luke Weaver, a youngster, who spent some time with the Cardinals a season ago. Look for Arizona to get after the young pitcher. The Diamondbacks are impressively offensively, and Weaver is in trouble. Bet the Diamondbacks.

Are the Indians a safe MLB betting pick this Thursday?

Los Angeles Angels vs. Cleveland Indians

Trevor Bauer goes for the Cleveland Indians at home against J.C. Ramirez and the Los Angeles Angels. Both pitchers are closing in on 10 wins on the season. Bauer is nearing the 100 innings on the season, and has struck out 111 batters. Ramirez is 8 strikeouts from 100. Look for a nice low scoring game in this game, as both pitchers control the game. In the end though, the best bet for this game is the home team. Bet the Cleveland Indians over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night.
