Major League Baseball enters the new week with a schedule of exciting action, headlined by a National League West battle between the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants.
The week’s thrilling battles do not simply end on Monday, however, as there are lots of intriguing prospects scattered throughout the week.
Here are the best series bets to make this week so can start getting ready to make your bets against the MLB Odds.
Top MLB Betting Series of the Week – May 9th Edition
New York Mets vs Washington Nationals
The Mets have been one of the best teams in baseball through the early portion of the campaign, and they do not seem keen on slowing down any time soon. Three of their starting pitchers are tossing ERAs below 3.00, and this is without Jacob deGrom, the consensus best pitcher in baseball, in the lineup.
Francisco Lindor’s resurgence has also helped lead a group of power batters back into prominence, and all in all, the Mets have transformed into one of the most well-rounded outfits in the league.
The Nationals are right in the heart of a rebuild and are only 10-20 this year. They lost three of four games against the Mets early in the season and have not improved since, and with last year’s MVP candidate Juan Soto playing a level below where he was expected to, the team has no realistic path to a series victory, if even a game within the series.
Baltimore Orioles vs St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals are 16-12 this season, but their recent performances have impressed even more than their slightly-above-.500 record. They have also done a nice job avoiding losing streaks regardless of who they are playing, and since they just lost the back-half of a four-game series with the San Francisco Giants— which they split in total— they are due for a win.
On top of that, St. Louis will be returning to the top of its pitching rotation at the start of the series, which will help them on the defensive end tremendously.
Baltimore is not that good of a team and has only managed to go 11-17, which is the fourth-best record in the American League East. Their hitting metrics are not terrible, but they give up too many runs and do not have much in the way of a clutch gene.
New York Yankees vs Chicago White Sox
The Yankees have rivaled the Mets for the title of the best team in baseball through the first month and change, and this does not seem to be an aberration.
The Yankees do not have the lights-out pitching that the Mets do, but their power bats are fearsome and capable of outperforming any team in the league on any given day. The Yankees recently went on an a 11-game win streak, so sustaining winning play is not hard for them.
The Chicago White Sox have been interesting to follow, first starting the season hot, then going on a massive losing streak, and now winning six straight games. Despite how up-and-down they can be, they have not proven they can consistently compete with the top powers in the league, so until they do, the Yankees are the better bet.
