Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees on ESPN / ATS Pick

This potential ALCS matchup is sure to deliver with the defending champs out to avenge a home sweep at the hands of the Yankees to kick off the month of May.
Chicago White Sox vs. Cleveland Indians on ESPN / ATS Pick
Why ESPN chose to telecast this game in front of a nationally televised audience has us scratching our heads, but it is what it is. Chicago is arguably the worst team in Major League Baseball. On the flipside, the Indians are one of the favorites to win the American League. Get ready to eat a ton of chalk if you want to back the home team in this matinee tilt.
San Francisco Giants vs. Colorado Rockies on ESPN / ATS Pick
With the Dodgers starting to rediscover their swagger, this becomes a huge series for both the Giants and Rockies who each currently sit ahead of Los Angeles in the NL West standings. These teams split a four game series in San Francisco last weekend. The Giants have won six of the last 10 meetings, but have struggled at Coors where they’ve dropped nine of 10. The over cashed in seven of those matchups.
Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees on ESPN / ATS Pick
The Astros and Yankees will close their three game set out in the Bronx on Wednesday night once again in front of a nationally televised audience. This time around, it will be Dallas Keuchel squaring off against Luis Severino. The latter outdueled the former when they opposed one another back on May 2 at Minute Maid Park. Severino tossed a complete game shutout in that one with 10 Ks. Keuchel was also good, but had trouble preventing Giancarlo Stanton from keeping the ball in the park.
Tampa Bay Rays vs. Oakland Athletics on MLB Network / ATS Pick<
The A’s have been lucrative for baseball bettors this season, so they’ll no doubt be looking to back them in this matchup against the Rays who haven’t been as fortunate. Trevor Cahill gets the starting nod in the pitcher’s paradise otherwise known as the Oakland Coliseum. He’s yet to concede a run at home to date, and stands 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA and .253 BAA in his career against Tampa Bay.
Cleveland Indians vs. Minnesota Twins on FS1 / ATS Pick
First place in the AL Central will once again be up for grabs on Saturday afternoon when the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins collide in the third game of their extended four game series. These rivals have split their last 10 overall meetings which includes a pair of meetings from earlier this season. The Tribe has however excelled at Target Field where they’ve come out on top in nine of their last 10 visits.
Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros on FOX / ATS Pick
Litmus test week continues for the defending champs on Saturday night when they host the third of four games to be played against the Boston Red Sox. Justin Verlander will once again be put under the spotlight when he makes his twelfth start of the season against David Price. Lifetime against the BoSox, JV stands 5-5 with a 2.88 ERA and .224 BAA over 17 starts. Price is 4-0 in his career at Minute Maid Park. This should be a doozy!
Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets on FOX / ATS Pick
The feast or famine Cubs pack their bags and head to the Big Apple where they’ll lock horns with a Mets team that’s had their number in the past. That is if you don’t take the last two seasons into account. Tyler Chatwood gets the tough task of running up against a locked in Jacob deGrom in this one, and that bodes terribly for a Chicago squad that’s dropped eight of their last 10 visits to Flushing.
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Colorado Rockies on FOX / ATS Pick
The Dodgers have a rookie phenom at their disposal right now and he goes by the name Walker Buehler. The Rockies already saw the 23 year old once this season, and he limited them to just two hits and 1 ER through seven innings. His opponent in that one just so happened to be German Marquez who snagged the win by tossing seven innings of 1 ER ball himself. Will the Coors effect dramatically change things this time around?
Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros on ESPN / ATS Pick
Closing a fantastic week of baseball betting action out will be the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros. The teams will have already played three games before this one, and A.J. Hinch’s squad had to face the Yankees for three in the previous series. One has to wonder just how much will remain in the tank for the defending champs when Drew Pomeranz squares off against Charlie Morton in the finale. Houston’s offense has been much tougher against righties, but Morton’s undefeated at home with a 1.85 ERA!
