MLB 2022: Top Series to bet during the week

Written by on September 19, 2022

Most of the MLB division races have been long decided. While there aren’t too many playoff positions yet to be determined, there are still a few spots up for grabs. When it comes to the Cleveland Guardians, Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, and Milwaukee Brewers, there is a lot left to play for. Here is the complete preview for your MLB bets.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. New York Mets

The Brewers, who were favorites to win the NL Central, have faded in the second half of the season. That has left Milwaukee treading water a few games behind the third NL Wild Card spot. The Brewers will have a big three-game series with the New York Mets, who are playing good baseball and clinging to a one-game lead in the NL East.Milwaukee has won seven of its past 10 games and hopes Philadelphia, which has now lost four straight, can continue to struggle. The Mets, who are coming off a three-game sweep of the hapless Pittsburgh Pirates, have now won four straight. This season will feature a dynamite pitching matchup in the first game of the series.Milwaukee’s Corbin Burnes, who is 10-7 with a 2.97 ERA and 219 strikeouts, will take on Mets ace pitcher Max Scherzer, who is 9-4 with a 2.26 ERA and 153 strikeouts. New York leads the season series 2-1.

Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies

The Braves have won three straight and will take on the Phillies starting Thursday. Atlanta completed a three-game sweep of Philadelphia this week and will be looking to pile up more suffering. The Phillies are just hanging on in the NL playoff chase and can’t afford too many more dud series with the Brewers in hot pursuit.While Atlanta has a deep pitching staff, which makes it difficult to pick out an ace pitcher, the highlight of this series may come Friday night. That game of the four-game series will feature a battle between Spencer Strider (11-5, 2.67 ERA) and Aaron Nola (9-12, 3.38) on the mound.The sweep last week notwithstanding, Atlanta and Philadelphia have played a number of close games this season. The Braves lead the season series 9-6.

Cleveland Guardians vs. Chicago White Sox

The Guardians have successfully fought off adversity this season, persevering, losing a few starting pitchers to ascend to the top of the American League Central. Starting Tuesday night, Cleveland will start a series with the Chicago White Sox that can allow them to start putting to rest the idea any other team can win the division.The Guardians, who have won eight of their past 10 games, have a 3.5-game lead. Chicago’s had a bizarre season. The White Sox saw manager Tony La Russa leave the team following the All-Star break due to personal reasons. While Chicago has managed to climb into second place and get close to Cleveland a few times, the White Sox haven’t made the Guardians sweat too much. Should Chicago take two of three or sweep, things could get interesting down the stretch.
