Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics Picks

And it comes down to the final day of the season. The AL West winner will be determined on Wednesday afternoon in the Bay Area, where the Oakland Athletics will hope to trip up the two-time defending AL West champs, the Texas Rangers.

The Rangers have fallen and choked away what was once a double digit win lead in the AL West. They need to win this game, or they are going to have to be playing in the Wild Card game on Friday, likely, but not necessarily at home.

Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics Picks

Last night, the Oakland Athletics clinched up a spot in the 2012 AL playoffs when they beat the Texas Rangers. Tonight when these two teams meet, first place in the AL West will be on the line.

The Rangers absolutely can’t believe that they are in this spot right now. They are now in a spot where they are looking back at the A’s, and are level with the New York Yankees for the best record in the American League, and New York will win that tiebreaker.

Cincinnati Reds vs St Louis Cardinals Pick

NL Central rivals meet in what might be a playoff preview for MLB betting fans to enjoy, as the Cincinnati Reds take to the field at Busch Stadium against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Reds are still fighting to win home field advantage in the National League playoffs, but their time is running short. They’re level with the Washington Nationals, but they will lose the season tiebreaker and drop into the No. 2 slot.

Baltimore Orioles vs Tampa Bay Rays Pick

The Tampa Bay Rays were eliminated from the playoffs last night, but they are still one of the hottest teams that the game has to offer. They’ll try to win their 90th game of the season at the expense of the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night in MLB betting action.

The Orioles really took a big step in the wrong direction yesterday, as they are now for some big time problems. They’re in Tampa Bay now, and if the season were to end today, they would have a day off to fly to Oakland for a one-game playoff against the Athletics,

San Francisco Giants vs Los Angeles Dodgers Picks

Two of the most bitter rivals in baseball betting action meet for (what should be) the final time of the season this week. Monday’s clash between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants might be the deciding game for both teams and their playoff hopes this year.

Oh sure, the G-Men already know that they are going to be in the postseason this year, but they know that they have to sweep to avoid having to start the playoffs at home (remember when that was a good thing to do?).

Red Sox vs. Yankees Picks

The last series of the year for MLB betting fans kicks off in the Bronx on Monday night, where the Boston Red Sox will hope to make the playoffs a living hell for the New York Yankees.

The Red Sox have long since been out of the discussion for the second season, and this might be the last time that we have to see Manager Bobby Valentine ruining the Nation. Boston is seemingly just trying to avoid finishing with the worst record in the American League or in the AL East.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Boston Red Sox Pick

The Tampa Bay Rays will make one last push at a spot in the playoffs in the AL East starting on Tuesday night in MLB betting action when they send their ace to the hill against the Boston Red Sox.

Tampa Bay has won five in a row, but it pretty much might have to win out to get into the playoffs. The Baltimore Orioles are four games in front of it, while the Oakland Athletics, though slumping, are still three up.

Oakland Athletics vs Texas Rangers Picks

The Oakland Athletics hope to take one more step towards clinching a spot in the playoffs this year in MLB betting action when they duke it out with the Texas Rangers on Monday night.

The A’s just had a bad weekend in the Big Apple, as they lost two out of three and lost a couple games in the Wild Card standings to both the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels. They still hold a comfortable three-game edge in the loss column against the Halos and four on the Rays, but this is the first of seven games against the Rangers left to play this year.

MLB Network Thursday Night Baseball Pick: Los Angeles @ Washington

Two teams that could very well turn out to be playoff foes in the National League meet on Thursday night for MLB betting action, as the Washington Nationals hope to take out the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers really haven’t been all that great since the mega deals a month ago that brought so many new faces to their team. They’re out of the NL West race at this point, but they still have a decent chance of getting in as a Wild Card.

ESPN Wednesday Night Baseball Pick: Texas @ Los Angeles

Arch rivals from the AL West meet on Wednesday night for MLB betting action when the Los Angeles Angels play host to the Texas Rangers.

Texas once looked like a lock for the playoffs, but at least right now, it is somewhat up in the air. Sure, the Rangers still hold the best record in the American League, and time is running out for other teams to catch up, but there are just three games worth of safety between them and the Oakland Athletics for first place in the AL West, and just 3.5 more games back to the Halos, who are just on the outside of the postseason.
