MLB Betting: Top Games to Wager On the Weekend

Posted by Derrick Harper on July 30, 2021 in

It’s the weekend, and this is the best time to bet on baseball. Weekend slates always provide exciting matchups and have tremendous betting opportunities. If you put some research in, you will end the weekend with a massive chunk of change.

Here are the best places to put your money and win. Let’s jump right into action so you can bet against their MLB odds.

Where Do You Put Your Money and Win – MLB Betting

Orioles vs Tigers on Friday

The Tigers and Orioles are both 3-2 in their past five. The games that feature two bad teams provide a lot of betting value. These are pick’em games, but you will find the Orioles for solid underdogs.

Tarik Skubal will pitch for the Tigers. Skubal has been solid, but I think Baltimore’s offense has an advantage. He is 6-9 on the season with a 4.42 ERA and 113 strikeouts. There were rumors that Trey Mancini would be traded at the deadline, but it appears like he will be staying in Baltimore.

This will help Mancini settle in at the plate. Nevertheless, the real reason you should bet on the Orioles is because of Matt Harvey. Harvey has been horrendous throughout 2021, but he has been sensational in his last few starts.

Dark Knight Matt Harvey appears to be back on the bump, and I am willing to bet on his success. Harvey has not allowed a run in his past two games and only four hits in his last 12 innings. He has not struck out many batters, but the wing has kept the ball in the yard.

Baltimore with positive odds is too good to resist with how Harvey has pitched as of late.

Yankees vs Marlins on Saturday

If you are not looking to be the Yankees this weekend, there is a problem. This team did not make a splash in free agency. New York started a tsunami by signing Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo. These are two lefty power hitters that the Yankees desperately needed.

Gallo and Rizzo will add pop and protection to a strong but underperforming lineup. New York’s lineup with Judge, Stanton, and Sanchez has underperformed. Nevertheless, the acquisition of these two lefties could give the team a spark.

Domingo German will pitch for the Yankees. He is 4-5 with a 4.45 ERA, but he was sensational in his last start. German went seven innings and gave up one run on one hit against the Red Sox last Sunday.

He struck out ten batters as well. If he can do this against Boston, the pitcher will have success versus the Marlins.

Dodgers Run Line vs D-backs on Sunday

The Dodgers strengthened their roster tenfold in free agency. The club signed Danny Duffy from Kansas City. They also acquired Max Scherzer and Trea Turner from the Nationals in one of the most significant free agency trades of all time.  

Arizona is one of the worst teams in baseball, so Los Angeles will have no money line value. Although, Dodgers on the run line is a safe and realistic bet after these acquisitions. The Dodgers were one of the best teams in the league before the trade.

They have now solidified their position as kings of the league.
