Posted by Derrick Harper on August 28, 2017 in

The Major League Baseball season is wrapping up the month of August left. Just a full month left of the season, and then postseason play will be here. In Major League Baseball, there are really only four teams out of ten that will go to the postseason that are pretty confidently in. The Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers out of the National League, and the Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians in the American League. The other divisions are still up for grabs,
and both leagues have great wildcard chases down the stretch. Let’s take a look at this week’s Free Major League Baseball Betting Predictions:

Top MLB Betting Matchups of the Week – August 28th Edition

Miami Marlins over Washington Nationals – Monday

The Miami Marlins are big underdogs on Monday. Not sure why, as the Miami Marlins are the hottest team in the National League right now. The offense has seen a ton of runs, anchored by the big man Giancarlo Stanton. Dee Gordon, Christian Yelich and Miguel Ozuna have been hot as well. Jose Urena is on the mound in this game, and takes on Edwin Jackson. This seems like a great game for the Marlins to win.

Boston Red Sox over Toronto Blue Jays – Monday

The Boston Red Sox are small favorites in this game on Monday. The Red Sox have not played well, after a pretty poor weekend against the Orioles, but still reside in first place in the division. The Red Sox send Drew Pomeranz to the mound, and the lefthander has been pretty good. He sits at 13-4 on the season, with a 3.18. He will take on the Blue Jays ace in Marcus Stroman. Stroman is seeking his 12th win. In a well pitched game, take Pomeranz and the Red Sox.

St. Louis Cardinals over Milwaukee Brewers – Tuesday

Luke Weaver is having a pretty solid rookie season. He is coming off his best outing of the season, and one of his other best outings came in a win over the Brewers. That game was in Milwaukee. This game is also in Milwaukee, where he will take on Matt Garza of the Brewers. This is a big National League Central tilt, and we are siding towards the Cardinals to win on Tuesday.

Houston Astros over Texas Rangers – Wednesday

Dallas Keuchel and the Houston Astros are at home against the Texas Rangers. While this game is scheduled to go on, we will see with the hurricane in the Houston area. Regardless, this matchup favors the Astros. Keuchel has been Cy Young like this season, while the Astros hitters get to tee off against Martin Perez. Look for a bunch of runs from the Astros on Wednesday in the win.

Are the Astros a safe MLB betting pick this Wednesday?

New York Mets over Cincinnati Reds – Thursday

Jacob DeGrom and the New York Mets are on the road at the Cincinnati Reds. DeGrom is 14-7 on the season, and take on Robert Stephenson of the Reds. DeGrom has nasty stuff, and despite pitching in a hitters ballpark, should be in great shape in this game. Take the New York Mets to beat the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.

Texas Rangers over Los Angeles Angels – Friday

Cole Hamels goes for the Texas Rangers against Tyler Skaggs for the Los Angeles Angels. Hamels is nasty, with a chance to win his 10th game of the season. This is a pretty good American League West matchup, with wildcard chase on the line. Look for the nasty stuff from Hamels to shine through with a win. Bet the Rangers over the Angels.
