Written by on April 29, 2016

Major League Baseball is ready to start a weekend full of baseball, with new series starting. While the final MLB spreads are not out for all the games throughout the weekend, we can still give you some top Major League Baseball Picks Against the Spread for the Weekend. Here is a look at the list of games:

Top MLB Picks Against the Spread for the Weekend


On Friday, what a game will be played in St. Louis, as the Washington Nationals take on the St. Louis Cardinals. The Nationals are going to send Stephen Strasburg to the mound against Mike Leake. The Washington Nationals are the favorite in this game against the Cardinals. The Nationals do not score enough to be able to pull this upset off. Against the spread – take the St. Louis Cardinals +111 over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.

The second game on Friday night is the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers. The Rangers are at home, and a slight underdog in this game. The game will feature Hector Santiago against Colby Lewis. Santiago has been tremendous, with a 2-0 start, and an ERA under 3.00 on the season. He will go against Colby Lewis, who has also been good. In a low scoring game, taking the home team is the best option here. Bet the Texas Rangers +106 over the Los Angeles Angels.

The Kansas City Royals are at the Seattle Mariners on Friday night. It looks like a lopsided game with Kris Medlen going against Felix Hernandez. But, for some reason when King Felix pitches for the Seattle Mariners, the offense does not score. Kansas City is a team that can certainly take advantage of a pitcher that does is struggling to put away batters. Look for the Royals to take good at bats and find a way to beat the Mariners. Bet the Kansas City Royals +144 over the Seattle Mariners.

On Saturday, the Atlanta Braves are going to find a way to beat the Chicago Cubs. Sounds awfully odd, with the best team in the National League losing to the worst team in the National League. The Atlanta Braves are sending their ace Julio Teheran against John Lackey. Teheran has yet to win a game this season, but his hard stuff will find a way at Wrigley Field. Bet the Atlanta Braves +171 over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Look for the Toronto Blue Jays to upset the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday as well. The Toronto Raptors are sending J.A. Happ, who has been outstanding to the mound. He will take on Chris Archer, who has amazing stuff, but has yet to put it all together. The Rays are going to have a tough time figuring out Happ, and the Blue Jays are going to get all over the hard throwing Archer. Bet on the Toronto Blue Jays +122 over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday.

The final game to look at is on Sunday, where the Chicago White Sox are at Baltimore. Chris Sale is going for the White Sox, and while we are not picking him to lose, we are picking the Chicago White Sox to lose. In a low scoring, bullpen type game, the Orioles are a good bet for this game. Take the Baltimore Orioles +144 over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.
