MLB Betting Tips – Playoff Contenders Update

MLB Betting Tips – Playoff Contenders Update

MLB Betting Tips – Playoff Contenders Update We are just a few weeks away from the end of the regular season, and only the St. Louis Cardinals have officially secured a playoff spot. A few teams will be joining St. Louis soon, with Kansas City leading the AL Central by 11 games with just 13 left to play, and the top five teams in the National League well ahead of San Francisco.

Over in the American League, it looks like Toronto and Kansas City are safe bets to make the postseason. Those are the top two choices to win the World Series with the Blue Jays a +375 favorite and Kansas City right behind them at +450.

After those two teams, there is still much to be settled. Texas overtook Houston in the AL West and lead the Astros by a single game heading into Tuesday night. These two teams meet up in Houston for a three-game series this weekend, so both teams still have control of their own path. The Rangers are the only other AL team that have better than 10:1 odds to win the World Series, currently at 8:1.

The New York Yankees are fell to 3.5 games behind Toronto after losing 4-2 against the Blue Jays Monday night. They are still secure in the top AL Wild Card spot, three games ahead of Houston and six games ahead of Minnesota.

While the Cardinals are the only team officially “in” right now, they share a +500 payout with the New York Mets to win the World Series (best odds in the NL). The LA Dodgers are right behind them at +580.

For those who love MLB Betting, the Los Angeles has a comfortable 7-game lead over the San Francisco Giants, while the Mets are 6.5 games better than Washington. The Wild Card race is all but settled as both the Cubs and Pirates are well ahead of San Francisco. Those two teams are battling for playoff positioning, however, with Pittsburgh two games ahead of the Cubs and four games behind St. Louis. Both teams share identical 10:1 odds to win the World Series.

For the teams fighting to get in, be careful of big lines as amateur mlb bettors tend to believe that teams that NEED to win WILL win and the price is inflated. For the team that have secured their playoff spots, watch for when these teams line up their playoff pitching rotations and be careful of overnight pitching changes.

MLB Betting: NL Playoff Update

MLB Betting: NL Playoff Update

MLB Betting: NL Playoff Update With one more month to go, the National League playoff picture is starting to take shape. Entering Sunday’s action, the division leaders are all at least 3.5 games ahead of their closest competitor, and even the two Wild Card teams (Pirates and Cubs) have a comfortable lead against the Giants (currently 4.5 games behind the Cubs for the final Wild Card spot).

Not only are those top five teams in the NL winning, but they are winning big. Runline players have been cleaning up over the last few weeks backing these teams while getting a favorable payout laying a run and a half.

The Cardinals have won six of their last seven games, with all six victories coming by at least two runs. Pittsburgh has won 10 of their last 12 games overall, with seven of those ten victories coming by at least two runs.

Chicago has cooled off a bit, losing four straight heading into Sunday, however we can give them a pass due to their 21-4 winning streak just prior to that four-game skid. And again, we find runline players cleaning up at the most online sportsbook as the Cubs won by at least two runs in 16 of those 21 victories.

The LA Dodgers are our pick to come out of the National League, and they are heating up with five straight wins entering Sunday. That includes a pair of wins over the streaking Cubs this weekend, and of those five wins four of them have come by at least two runs.

The New York Mets are the final team in the top five, and they too have performed well for MLB runline bettors. The Mets have won seven of their last nine games overall with six of those seven victories coming by at least two runs.

Remember, even if our team loses the game outright, we are still laying a smaller price than we would betting them on the MLB moneyline. This trend of the NL contenders not only winning at a high percentage, but winning by margins of 2+ runs is a trend that should continue until these teams lock up their playoff spot and begin to rest their starters.

We’ll be back next week with a look at the American League Playoff contenders and see how they are performing from an MLB betting runline standpoint.
