Weekend MLB Betting Picks
BEST SERIES PLAY – Tampa Bay Rays vs. Chicago White Sox (4/25 – 4/27)
This is going to be an awesome series, but I still prefer the White Sox at home in my weekend baseball betting picks. Chicago’s recent series against Detroit has seen them produce a staggering amount of offence, and returning home after a 7-game road trip is going to be a welcome x-factor that gives them some added motivation. Tampa Bay is still a great team but they’ve been in a recent slide going just 4-6 SU in their last 10 games. The Rays are also 1-3 SU in their last four road games. Take the White Sox as series winners this weekend.
BEST GAME BETS – Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays
The Red Sox and Blue Jays both need to bank as many games as humanly possible in the densely packed AL East, so this is going to be a more aggressive series than most would expect for an April affair. Mark Buehrle gets the start against Jake Peavy this Friday, while John Lester and R.A. Dickey take the mound to close the set on Sunday.
I like Toronto in the first game, but I just don’t trust Dickey’s knuckleball against the bats of Boston. He could surprise, but I’m not willing to back him in my weekend baseball betting picks just yet. Take Toronto to take the series in the first two days, and then feel free to back Lester on the mound when he clashes with an errant Dickey on Sunday.
BEST RUNLINE VALUE – Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers
It’s hard to make money on the Brewers at home, especially as they gain steam in the public factor but the big sneak here will be the runline where you can feel free to float shots against the Cubs in your own weekend baseball betting picks. This series feels like a sweep, and the Cubs have lost their last seven games by at least two runs each time. The Brewers are proving to be one of the best defensive teams and one of the most profitable takes in all of MLB betting. They’ll be a strong run line play this weekend, which means you can get some increased return from your weekend baseball betting picks.
