With each team have played around 70-75 games, the MLB season is getting close to its midway point. If you are looking for a little more inside info for betting purposes, we can help you by providing a quick update on the best betting teams for the upcoming week.
Who is HOT
The Red Hot Sox have won 5 in a row and got back to a wild card spot. But let’s be honest: Boston swept the O’s and that doesn’t necessarily mean the Red Sox are playing great ball at the moment.
This week forecast has a tough 3-game series away against the Twins, with Porcello, Price and Rodrigues likely getting starts, and 3 games against the Jays at home.
Safe bet? No, but Boston has a good chance of going 5-1 or 4-2 this week.
The Dodgers are not really “hot” but took 3 wins out 4 agains the Cubs over the weekend. Up next, a 7-game homestand, starting with a 4-game series against the Giants, followed by 3 games against the Rockies.
SF is no match for LA this season and the Dodgers could be sending Maeda, Kershaw, Hill, and Buehler to the mound, with the three last pitchers combining for an incredible (17-3) record. But remember: the Giants always play their best against LA, a sweep is unlike and a split series wouldn't be a surprise.
The Braves have gone 9-1 in the last 10 which already makes them the hottest team in MLB at the moment.
It gets better. Atlanta concludes the homestand with a 3-game series against the struggling Mets, who have lost 4 out of the last 6 games. Then, the Braves travel to DC to take on a Nats teams sitting five games below .500. Atlanta should be an interesting pick this week.
