Top 2022 MLB Matches to Bet On: 5 Great Series for the Weekend

It’s the penultimate weekend of the 2022 MLB regular season, and most of the divisions aside from the NL East are all but clinched. Even the wild card teams are fairly clinched, but with positioning, seeding to be determined. Here are some of the best weekend series’ that still matter at least a little bit. Let’s get right to it so you can bet against their MLB Odds.

Must-Bet Major League Baseball Games for the Upcoming Weekend (Sep. 17th – 18th)

Red Sox at Yankees 

Red Sox – Yankees is always a classic rivalry, even late in the season when one of the teams doesn’t have much to play for. Boston is the next team up in the A.L. to get mathematically eliminated in the postseason, and you have to think the Yankees would love to be the team to do just that. 

An interesting thing to watch in this series is New York’s Aaron Judge’s quest for the A.L. home run record. Judge currently has 60 HRs, one away from tying former Yankee Roger Maris. Judge has five HRs vs. the Red Sox this season.

Braves at Phillies 

This series got underway on Thursday night, with Atlanta losing 1-0. The Braves have clinched a playoff berth; now they’re just trying to find out whether they’re going in as the division winner or through the wild card. With Thursday’s loss, the Braves are 1.5 GB of the Mets in the NL East. 

The Phillies would take a big weekend as they continue to try to stave off the Brewers, who are 2.5 GB in the quest for the third wild card spot. Milwaukee has a pretty easy matchup on paper this weekend with the 59-91 Reds, so we’ll see if they can pick up some ground.  

Blue Jays at Rays 

The American League wild card seedings will get a little clearer this weekend with Toronto and Tampa Bay squaring off at the Trop. The Blue Jays currently have a one-game lead over TB for the top wild card spot but did lose the opener 10-5 on Thursday. The Rays hold a slight 9-7 edge in the season series. 

Mets at A’s 

New York should be huge favorites in all three games in Oakland, and it’s looking like anything less than a sweep is going to be a disappointment. The Mets have a 1.5-game lead over the Braves in the NL East and this weekend have Chris Bassitt, Jacob deGrom, and Max Scherzer lined up to be their three starters. 

Cardinals at Dodgers 

While Aaron Judge goes for 61 HRs, Albert Pujols is on the quest for 700 as he currently sits at 698 long balls all time. Pujols is on a six-game homerless streak, and St. Louis as a team had been shut out for three straight games prior to Thursday’s 5-4 win in San Diego. The Cardinals have a 7.5 game lead over the Brewers in the NL Central with 11 games to play. 

Other important series this weekend include the Brewers visiting the Reds, aiming for a sweep as they try to climb into the final wild-card spot. The Mariners also visit Kansas City with Seattle, Toronto, and Tampa Bay, all within 1.5 games of each other in the AL wild card seeding.
