Top MLB Series & Betting Picks – Tuesday, September 19

Written by on September 18, 2017

As we enter the final 2 weeks of the 2017 MLB regular season, the playoff picture is starting to take shape. No less than 4 teams have booked their ticket into the postseason, which means that spaces are becoming very limited. This is especially true in the American League, where the Wild Card race still remains quite wide open, with the AL East title also still up for grabs. We are going to get things rolling this week by looking at some of the Top MLB Series starting Tuesday, September 5, and their respective MLB betting odds.

Top MLB Series & Betting Picks – Tuesday, September 19

Minnesota Twins vs. New York Yankees

The Yankees are as good as in to the playoffs, as they have a solid 4-game lead in the first Wild Card spot. They will not have given up on winning the AL East, though, as they are still just 3 games back of the Boston Red Sox. If it is going to be the Wild Card for the Yankees, though, then this series may well serve as a preview, since the Twins are currently in the final spot. They hold a 2-game lead over the chasing pack, and would like to cement that spot, and perhaps give the Yankees something to think about, ahead of their potential meeting in the postseason.MLB Series Pick: Minnesota Twins

MLB Odds to Win NL Pennant

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

If we are being perfectly honest, the Milwaukee Brewers may well be the only team with a legitimate shot at catching the Colorado Rockies for the final Wild Card spot in the National League. They are 2.5 games back of the Rockies heading into this week, and need a strong outing against their division rivals in this series if they are to close the gap. The WC looks like their only way in at this point, as the Chicago Cubs are on a 6-game winning streak that has given them a 4-game lead in the Central Division. There is literally zero margin of error for the Brewers on this MLB Series, and in the final 2 weeks of the season.MLB Series Pick: Milwaukee Brewes

Cleveland Indians vs. LA Angels

The Cleveland Indians saw their win streak end at 22 after losing 4-3 to the Kansas City Royals, although they did then go on to close out the week by winning the next 2. They will get the penultimate week of the season under way with a series against the LA Angels, a team who still has a shot at getting the final Wild Card spot in the American League. The Angels are currently 2 games back of the Twins for that highly coveted spot, and would probably have preferred an easier series to help them get back into the picture. That said, if you are serious about winning a championship, then these are the types of games that you need to get in the habit of winning.MLB Series Pick: Cleveland IndiansLA Angels still has a shot at getting the final Wild Card spot in the American League

Colorado Rockies vs. San Francisco Giants

The NL West may well be sending 3 teams into the postseason. The LA Dodgers are already in, and the Arizona Diamondbacks should clinch their spot this week. That leaves the Colorado Rockies, who currently own a 2-game lead in the race for the final Wild Card spot in the NL. You would certainly like them to get the job done against a San Francisco Giants team that has not been very good this season, but this is a stage of the season where nerves and pressure can prove to be the undoing of very good teams. Another winning week for the Rockies would almost certainly mean that their postseason ticket gets punched.MLB Series Pick: Colorado Rockies
