Get in the action with the following must-watch and bet MLB games for Labor Day week.

MLB Must Bet Games Sept 7-13

Monday, Sep. 7

St. Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs

Heading into the week, the Cubs have a tenuous 2 ½ game lead over the rival St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs start Kyle Hendricks who has an excellent 2.60 home ERA. The Cardinals must dig deep to beat Kyle at Wrigley.

Houston Astros at Oakland A’s

It’s close to put up or shut up time for the cheating Stros. Houston has 3 ½ games to make up on Oakland. They battle the A’s on Monday with 3.35 overall ERA Christian Javier on the mound. Javier has yielded 14 runs in 37.2 innings pitched.

Tuesday, Sep. 8

Tampa Bay Rays at Washington Nationals

AL East leading Tampa believes Ryan Yarborough can tame the Nationals’ batting lineup. Yarborough’s 3.98 ERA and 1.15 WHIP implies the belief is warranted.

Kansas City Royals at Cleveland

Cleveland is a half-a-game behind the Chicago White Sox in the tight AL Central Division. The Tribe can’t afford to lose any games, much less one against 14-26 Kansas City. Cleveland starter Tristan McKenzie is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA and a .75 WHIP. 

Wednesday, Sep. 9

Houston Astros at Oakland A’s

Lance McCullers has yet to get on track. One of Houston’s top pitchers in both 2018 and 2019, McCullers has a 5.79 ERA. His 13.50 ERA in away games should give the A’s plenty of confidence heading into this matchup.

L.A. Dodgers at Arizona Diamondbacks

Dodgers are 39-11 with a +99 run differential. D’Backs are 15-25 with a -38 run differential. In the words of the great Stan Lee, ‘Nuff said.

Thursday, Sep. 10

Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins

Heading into the week, the Phillies have gone 8-2 SU in their last 10. They could run into a road block on Thursday because the Marlins start Sandy Alcantara and his 3.78 ERA. When Sandy faced the Phillies on July 24, he held them to 1 earned run off 3 hits and struck out 7 in 6.2 innings.

San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres

Giants starter Trevor Cahill is 0-0 this season. His 2.65 ERA has helped the Giants win his last 4 starts, though. But before getting too excited about SF’s chances against the Friars, realize that 3 of those wins were against the D’Backs and the other was against the Angels. 

Friday, Sep. 11

Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee Brewers

The last time he faced them, the Cubbies booted Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff after just 4.1 innings. Woodruff allowed 3 earned runs off 4 hits. Milwaukee’s prospects don’t look promising in this matchup.

L.A. Angels at Colorado Rockies

The Halos send 0-3 Griffin Canning and his 4.54 ERA to the mound. But German Marquez has a 7.03 ERA at home. Shootouts happen on the regular at Coors Field. Over? Maybe.  

Saturday, Sep. 12

Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox

White Sox starter Dallas Kuechel is one of the steadiest pitchers in baseball. This season, he’s 5-2 with a 2.42 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. Detroit got to Dallas the last time he faced the Tigers, though. Motown scored 3 earned runs off 6 hits in 6 innings and beat Kuechel and the Sox 5-1.

Houston Astros at L.A. Dodgers

The most heated NL versus AL rivalry continues when the Stros head to Chavez-Ravine to face the Dodgers. Houston sends Framber Valdez to the mound. Valdez has a 2.58 ERA. His road ERA is an excellent .86. Expect the Stros to compete on Saturday. 

Sunday, Sep. 13

Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees

Baltimore starter John Means is 0-3 with an 8.20 ERA. That’s good news for the struggling Yankees. As of Sep. 5, NYY is 5-5 in their last 10 and 5 ½ games behind the Rays in the AL East.

Houston Astros at L.A. Dodgers

If Framber does shut down LAD on Saturday, the Dodgers figure to get their revenge on Sunday. The home team’s 5.61 runs per game batting lineup faces Christian Javier. Overall, Javier is great. His 6.39 road ERA could get him in some trouble on Sunday, though.
