MLB AL Betting Picks for July 28 and July 29

Saturday, July 28

Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox

Minnesota starter Jake Odorizzi hasn’t had success versus Boston batters. The Red Sox hit .268. they’ve got 53 hits from 198 at-bats against Odorizzi. 7 of those 53 hits were home runs. Odorizzi could pitch lights out and the Red Sox are still the play to win this game on Saturday. The reason is because Boston has one of the best bullpens in baseball. Minnesota’s bullpen isn’t very good. At least a 3 run Boston victory sure seems like a great possibility. MLB AL Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox

Seattle Mariners at L.A. Angels

Seattle Saturday starter Felix Hernandez knows the Angels well. He’s faced Angel batters 349 times. The Halos have a .246 batting average versus King Felix. They’ve got only 15 home runs from those 349 at-bats. But, this season, Felix hasn’t been his usual self. He’s got a decent 8 and 8 record. That’s because Seattle is one of the best teams in MLB. Felix’s ERA is 5.14. He also hasn’t pitched past the 5th inning in his last couple of starts. The Angels win. MLB AL Betting Pick: L.A. Angels

Sunday, July 29

Texas Rangers at Houston Astros

Texas starter Mike Minor should have his hands full with Houston’s powerful batting line-up. Minor’s got a 4.83 ERA. That’s no ridiculously bad. It’s not great, either. Worse? The Rangers are 0 and 4 the last 4 times Minor’s started. One of the losses was versus Houston on July 4. Minor pitched 6 innings. He gave up 3 earned runs off 7 hits. The Rangers figure to be huge dogs. They’ll have a shot on Sunday, though, because Houston starter Lance McCullers Jr. has allowed 11 earned runs off 10 hits in his last 8.1 innings pitched. The Rangers are the upset play. MLB AL Betting Pick: Texas Rangers

Oakland A’s at Colorado Rockies

As of July 26, the A’s are a terrific 61 and 43 on the season. Oakland send Frankie Montas to the mound to face the Rockies on July 29. Montas has been a big part of Oakland’s ascension this season. His ERA is a decent 3.54. The A’s are a great 7 and 2 straight up in Montas’ last 9 starts. He won’t shutout Colorado on Sunday. He should have more success versus Rockies batters than Colorado starter German Marquez has versus Oakland batters, though. MLB AL Betting Pick: Oakland A’s
