Believe it or not, we are fast approaching the midway point of the season, and while some teams are exactly where we expected them to be, there are others who have either proven to be better than expected or struggling to live up to preseason expectations.


My Analysis for the Weekend MLB Picks

Either way, with more than half of the season still to come, there is still plenty of time for fortunes to change, one way or the other. All any team can do is take it one game or series at a time, so with that in mind, let’s look ahead to the weekend and the ATS picks that we really like.


Washington Nationals over Miami Marlins

Friday, June 14, 6:45 PM | The NL East is one of the divisions that is not going exactly as we thought, with the Atlanta Braves on a major slump that now has them 10 games back of the Phillies at the top. The Nationals now have their eye on the #2 spot in the division, as they have reeled off 5 straight wins to get within 4 games of the Braves.

They have an opportunity to keep rolling against the Marlins this weekend, and I particularly like them on Friday night as they look to extend their winning streak over the Marlins to 5 games.



Seattle Mariners over Texas Rangers

Friday, June 14, 10:10 PM, Apple TV+ | This is arguably the best weekend series we have coming our way, with both of these teams battling it out for the top spot in the AL West. The Mariners have surged to the top, opening up a 6 ½ game lead on the Rangers, so they will be looking to extend that lead this weekend.

The Friday game is the one where I think they have the real edge in terms of pitching, as George Kirby looks to be a better bet than Andrew Heaney at this point. The Mariners are also hot at the moment, winning 7 of their last 10. Expect that momentum to carry over into the weekend.


Chicago Cubs over St. Louis Cardinals

Saturday, June 15, 2:20 PM, FS1 | The NL Central is proving to be as unpredictable as expected this season as we approach the midway point. The Brewers have a 7-game lead at the top, but the other 4 teams are separated by just a half game. If any of those teams are to make a push in the second half, they need to start picking up wins.

This series is critical, and I believe it will be the Cubs who come away with the win on Saturday, as they will have Shota Imanaga (7-1, 1.96 ERA) on the mound. His stats tell you all you need to know about his performance this season.


Toronto Blue Jays over Cleveland Guardians

Sunday, June 16, 1:37 PM | I occasionally like to take a little risk when putting these picks together, which is exactly what I am doing with this one. The Guardians have 10 more wins than the Blue Jays this season and are pulling away at the top of the AL Central, yet I have a feeling that they might have a tough time on the road in Toronto this Sunday.

Both pitchers have been solid this season, but Jose Berrios of the Jays has the slight edge here, as he has been tough to beat at home, winning each of his last 3 starts in his own building.
