In our latest round of free MLB betting picks, Drew Goldfarb, Taylor Smith, and Jim Beviglia break down four more potential baseball bets. First, a weekend series with some serious long-term potential: The Los Angeles Dodgers are the runaway favorites to win the National League pennant once the MLB Playoffs begin, and the New York Yankees currently hold the best record in Major League Baseball. While they may very well meet in October, the teams square off for a three-game series at Dodger Stadium this weekend. Which team will come away with the series win?
Sticking with the top teams in baseball, the Houston Astros host the Los Angeles Angels this weekend. Astros rookie Yordan Alvarez has been on fire since getting called up earlier this summer, averaging better than one run batted in per contest and posting a batting average of over .330 through his first 53 games in the big leagues. On the other side this weekend, the best player in all of baseball, as Mike Trout leads his team into Minute Maid Park. While Houston is clearly the better team, which player provides the better Daily Fantasy play this weekend between Trout and Alvarez?
Two rookie pitchers are expected to start this weekend in the White Sox’s series against the Texas Rangers. Chicago is expected to send Dylan Cease to the mound on Friday, while Texas will go with Kolby Allard on Saturday. While you are certainly free to select both rookies on their respective days, which will have the better Daily Fantasy performance?
Finally, a single game pick that’s a couple of weeks in the making: The Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals began a game earlier this month, only for inclement weather to force the game to be suspended in the top of the 10th inning. With the game tied at four and Meibrys Viloria facing a 2-1 count with nobody on and nobody out, play will resume Thursday afternoon. In perhaps the most sudden-death circumstances a Major League Baseball game has been played under in recent memory, which team will come away with the win?
