Must Bet MLB Games August 10-16

Here are the games every baseball fan needs to target if you are betting on MLB this week.

MLB Top Games of the Week August 10 – 16

Monday, August 10

Oakland A’s at L.A. Angels

So far in two starts, Oakland pitcher Sean Manaea hasn’t thrown well. He’s 0-2 with an 8.03 ERA. Angels starter Julio Teheran is 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA. The A’s have the advantage because of their bullpen.

San Diego Padres at L.A. Dodgers

Padres starter Garrett Richards is 0-1 with a 4.60 ERA. The Dodgers have another stud starter in Dustin May. Dustin’s ERA is a great 2.63. He also has a 1.17 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 13.2 innings pitched.

Tuesday, August 11

Chicago Cubs at Cleveland

NL Central-leading Chicago sends Jon Lester to the mound. All JL does is lockdown batters. His ERA this season is a ridiculous .82. The Tribe counters with Mike Cleavinger. So, don’t blindly hand the win to Lester and the Cubs.

Minnesota Twins at Milwaukee Brewers

Both teams can rack up scores. The Brewers start Josh Lindblom, who should throw well. But Josh faces a team that averages over 5 runs per.

Wednesday, August 12

Arizona Diamondbacks at Colorado Rockies

At 11-3 as of August 8, Colorado has a 1 ½ game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West. Arizona continues to suffer a massive run differential. The D’Backs are -25 in 15 games. 

Washington Nationals at New York Mets

Nats’ list Anibal Sanchez as their Wednesday starter. Anibal has yet to get on track. He’s 0-2 with a 7.84 ERA. But Mets starter Michael Wacha is 1-2 with a 6.43 ERA. 

Thursday, August 13

Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox

Tampa is just 3 games behind the New York Yankees in the AL East. If the Rays hope to make the post-season, they can’t lose to squads like the Red Sox. Boston starts Zack Godley. His 3.97 ERA points to the Rays having a tough day.

Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago Cubs

Milwaukee’s Brett Anderson battles Chicago’s Kyle Hendricks. Kyle gives the Cubs the edge. He’s got a 2-1 record with a 3.54 ERA. 

Friday, August 14

Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros

Seattle hopes Yusei Kikuchi can temper the Astros’ bats. Yusei’s 5.28 ERA won’t give Mariner fans confidence. The Stros’ Framber Valdez is 0-2. But Framber dropped his ERA to 2.04 in his last start.

L.A. Dodgers at L.A. Angels

In 2 starts, Dodger ace Walker Buehler is 0-0. His ERA is 5.40. That’s how tough it is to beat the Dodgers. The Angels send ace Andrew Heaney to the mound, though. Heaney could dominate. His ERA is 2.35.

Saturday, August 15

Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees

Although the Red Sox aren’t that good, this matchup is still one of the best rivalries in sports. Boston sends Martin Perez to the hill. Perez has a decent 3.45 ERA. The Yankees counter with James Paxton and his 13.50 ERA. JP must turn it around while Martin must just maintain his consistency.

L.A. Dodgers at L.A. Angels

Dustin May steps to the mound for the second time. He should have no trouble handling the Angels on Saturday. Consider the run line unless there’s something telling you to stay away from May and LAD.

Sunday, August 16

Atlanta Braves at Miami Marlins

Hopefully, the Marlins won’t run into any more issues this week. Miami starter Pablo Lopez threw 5 innings in his first start, allowed 0 runs off 2 hits, and struck out 7. His ERA was 0.00 and his WHIP was .40. Braves’ starter Sean Newcomb has a 6.57 ERA. So, yes, if Miami plays on Sunday, they have a shot to beat the ATL. 

Oakland A’s at San Francisco Giants

As of August 8, Oakland is 11-4. The A’s have the best record in the American League. But Sean Manaea pitches on Sunday. The Giants average 4.44 runs per. So, even though the A’s should rock SF, if Manaea doesn’t have his best stuff, the G-Men will have a chance.
