The bubbly could be flying at Kauffman Stadium on Monday night for the Detroit Tigers, as they hope to clinch up the AL Central title at the expense of the Kansas City Royals in their final series of the season.
Detroit has been helped by the swoon of the Chicago White Sox, and the truth of the matter is that it will be spending this game watching the scoreboard as well to see what is going on with the Sox.
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.
A pivotal four-game series opens up on Thursday for MLB betting fans to enjoy, as the race for the playoffs in the American League will take further shape for both the Tampa Bay Rays and the Chicago White Sox.
The shame here for the Rays is that they have won seven in a row, and they probably need to win six out of seven to even think about getting into the playoffs. They do know that they control their own destiny to get into the show now at least, knowing that they are within three games of the Baltimore Orioles, the team that is coming to Tropicana Field to end the season.
Combatants in the AL West continue their pivotal four-game set in Arlington on ESPN’s Wednesday Night Baseball betting festivities, as the Oakland Athletics and the Texas Rangers duke it out.
Oakland is a heck of a team, and it just keeps showing the resiliency that is going to be needed to get into the playoffs this year. The team has a couple games of safety in the loss column, but both the Tampa Bay Rays and Los Angeles Angels are charging hard down the stretch.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The AL playoff chase will take another turn on Tuesday night for MLB betting action in Motown, where the Detroit Tigers will host the Oakland Athletics in the first game of a crucial three-game set.
Not only is Oakland really starting to look the part of a playoff team, but it is closing in quickly on the Texas Rangers for the AL West lead as well. The A’s have the second best record in the National League, and they have 4.5-games of safety over the Los Angeles Angels, who are the first team on the outside of the playoffs looking in at the moment.
The surging Philadelphia Phillies look to keep their name in the hat for the NL Wild Card with a series in Flushing starting on Monday, as they take on the New York Mets in a battle for MLB betting fans to enjoy.
It is amazing to think that even after trading Shane Victorino, even after trading Joe Blanton, and even after trading Hunter Pence, that even at one-game under .500, the Phillies are still in the thick of the fight for the last Wild Card slot in the National League.
