MLB Wagers To Consider This Week

MLB Wagers To Consider This Week

The baseball season is winding down with a week from this Sunday (Sept. 27) being the last day of the regular season. Two days later, the playoffs being, and remember 16 teams will advance to the postseason this year. 

Futures

I put my money where my mouth is and got the Padres to win the World Series at +1300, and because I'm such a whale the line is down to +1000 across the board. The real reason is likely that they've clinched a playoff spot already and entering Tuesday were only 1.5 games behind the Dodgers with the second-best record in baseball. What's interesting is that the Padres were +400 to win the National League West on Tuesday despite having a three-game series with the Dodgers and ending the season against a San Francisco team with nothing to play for. The Dodgers end the season against the Angels but have a three-game series against Oakland before that  which could prove to be tricky. 

Games/Player Props To Bet This Weekend

The weekend should start on Friday night, so let's go there.

Zac vs. Zack. We have Zac Gallen vs. Zack Greinke on Friday night, and I like the over for whatever the run total is (7.5-8.5). Greinke has given up at least three earned runs in five consecutive starts while Gallen has allowed 11 earned runs in his last two starts (10 innings). No problem taking the over team total for the Diamondbacks either at what should be about four runs.
