The AL Sees Some Prime Action this Weekend

The best sports betting websites continue to take action on MLB games as the season heads towards the All-Star break. The mid-summer classic is the point where some teams start to pick up their pursuit of a pennant or wild card spot, and other teams fail to make the grade. The AL races for all pennants and wild card spots are heating up, and the sportsbook agents will be keeping a close watch on the important AL games that will be going on this weekend.

Friday – New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles

Every team in the AL East is still alive in the pennant race, but the Baltimore Orioles possess a slight advantage over the New York Yankees. Each game between these two teams will be one step closer to deciding who challenges the Boston Red Sox for the AL East pennant and which team winds up playing that one deciding game in the wild card round of the playoffs. With every team in the AL East above .500, there is no room for error in these divisional games. The best sports betting experts like the experience of the Yankees when it comes to winning this game.

My Pick: New York Yankees

Friday – Toronto Blue Jays @ Boston Red Sox

The fans in Toronto were ready to write the Blue Jays off when the team struggled to get started. But now that Toronto has been able to keep pace in the AL East, the fans are getting excited about a possible playoff run. The Blue Jays need every win they can get, especially over the division-leading Boston Red Sox. But Boston’s pitching has made them a favorite all year with the sports betting lines, and that will be the case in this exciting weekend game.

My Pick: Boston Red Sox

Saturday – Cleveland Indians @ Chicago White Sox

The White Sox and Indians have flipped places as the season has moved on. The Indians, who struggled out of the gate, are not threatening the Detroit Tigers for the AL Central pennant, while the White Sox have dropped to the bottom of the division. Chicago can just not seem to get its starting pitching together while the Indians are definitely benefitting from what new manager Terry Francona has to tell them. The White Sox started this week 3-7 in their previous 10 games and it does not look like a visit from the Indians is going to help Chicago to find its winning groove.

My Pick: Cleveland Indians

Sunday – Los Angeles Angels @ Houston Astros

The Astros are not finding any more success in the AL than they found in the NL, which is not a surprise to many experts and fans. But the struggles of the Los Angeles Angels are a huge surprise to betting experts and a disappointment to fans. The Angels are trying to stay out of the AL West basement currently occupied by the Astros, but the unpredictable Astros are not going to make that easy.

My Pick: Houston Astros
