MLB Odds and Picks: Top Must Bet Games and Analysis for Week 1

MLB Odds and Picks: Top Must Bet Games and Analysis for Week 1

We are just a few days into the new MLB season, so making any sort of predictions at this point always feels like a bit of a fool’s errand. We haven’t seen enough of any teams to get a good handle on how they might look a month or two from now, plus we have yet to see all the rotation pitchers get their first starts of the season. Even with all that, we can still look at the schedule for the week and see some series that deserve attention. I’m not quite ready to start making any handicapping picks for baseball, but I can pick out some series that deserve your betting attention, so let’s look at some of the better MLB betting analysis matchups coming this week.


Top MLB Betting Picks of the Week | MLB Odds and Betting Lines


New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

The Mets are out to a fast start, going 3-1 through their opening 4 games of the new season. They took advantage of a poor Miami Marlins team and will have a tougher time of things when they hit the road for a series with the Milwaukee Brewers, who went 2-1 in their opening series of the year.

Atlanta Braves at St. Louis Cardinals

The Braves went on the road to start the season, taking 2 of 3 from the Nationals, while the Cardinals went 2-1 at home. St. Louis were fin to watch in their series against the Blue Jays, with offense very much on display. A total of 37 runs were scored over those 3 games, but can they keep delivering runs against a Braves D that surrendered just 7 runs in their first 3 games?

Baltimore Orioles at Texas Rangers

The Orioles were one of the surprise teams of the season in 2022, but repeating their performance is not going to be easy, and they started things out by going 1-2 in their opening series. No such issues for the Rangers, who opened the season with a sweep of the Phillies in totally dominant fashion. This will be a much tougher test for the Rangers.

Houston Astros at Minnesota Twins

Many baseball pundits believe that the Houston Astros will once again be in the hunt to win the World Series, but to do that, they are going to need to be a whole lot better than they were in their 2-2 start to the season. Things are not about to get any easier, as they will hit the road later in the week to face a Minnesota Twins team that got out to a perfect 3-0 start, albeit against the pretty woeful Royals. Still, this looks like a great matchup.

Toronto Blue Jays at LA Angels

If you are looking for a series that promises a lot of offense, look no further than this one, which kicks off later in the week. Toronto scored 15 runs in their opening 3 games, yet still somehow managed to go 1-2 to start the season. The Angels outscored the A’s 20-3, and while that would suggest a series sweep, they actually lost one of those games to Oakland. I think we will see a bit of a slugfest here, so keep an eye on the game totals for this one.
