Cincinnati Reds vs San Francisco Giants Game 1 Pick

The pivotal Game 1 of the NLDS takes place on Saturday night for MLB betting fans, as the Cincinnati Reds face off with the San Francisco Giants.


The Reds are the higher seed in this game, but Manager Dusty Baker really has to be upset that his team is going to have to start on the road in San Francisco, a place that he used to manage. Baker nearly got the Giants a World Series in 2002, and he hopes that this trip to the playoffs is better than the last time his Reds were here.

Baltimore Orioles vs Texas Rangers Pick

The second ever Wild Card playoff game takes place at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on Friday night, where the Texas Rangers will hope to dispose of the Baltimore Orioles once and for all.

The O’s were the team to watch over the course of the season. They were just a lot of fun and refreshing. Sure, a lot of what they accomplished was just pure luck, but it was a team that had some grit and won a ton of close games (not to mention going 16-2 in extra innings).

St Louis Cardinals vs Atlanta Braves Pick

MLB betting fans will get a chance to sink their teeth into the first ever Wild Card playoff game in baseball history, as the Atlanta Braves play a one game do or die against the St. Louis Cardinals at Turner Field on Friday afternoon.

The Cardinals are the defending World Series champions, and they are going to be under the gun in this one for sure. The good news is that they are going to be throwing a man in Kyle Lohse that went 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA this year.

Balitmore Orioles vs Tampa Bay Rays Pick

The AL East race all comes down to this on Wednesday night. The Baltimore Orioles will be on the road to take on the Tampa Bay Rays in the rubber match of the final series of the year for these two teams.

Last year, drama happened on Game 162 for the Orioles and the Rays. This year, Baltimore is hoping that it once again all goes its way. The O’s still have their AL East dreams alive, and they could still even be the top seed in the American League if the chips fall right.

Boston Red Sox vs NY Yankees Picks

The disastrous season for the Boston Red Sox will come to close on Wednesday night in the Bronx, where they will try to play the role of the spoiler once again for the New York Yankees.

It truly is amazing to think how badly the Red Sox played down the stretch of this year. They were 53-51 and just two games behind the Baltimore Orioles on July 31st, but over the course of the last 2+ months of the season, they have gone 16-41 and have been the worst team in baseball.

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?).
