The Brewers and Cardinals are still in the Wild Card picture in the NL, but a loss for either team in this series could see their playoff hopes and your MLB betting picks severely dented. The WC race in the NL is as tight as it gets, with the Mariners and Orioles both in the thick of it. Though, make sure to take a look at the current betting odds for the MLB season here.

Analysis: The Cardinals challenge for a spot in the postseason appears to be faltering after managing only 2 wins in their last 8 games. That poor run of form leaves them 5.5 games out of the final Wild Card spot, and a game and a game and a half back of the Brewers. It’s fair to say that if they lose both games in this series, it might be time to look ahead to next season. Carlos Martinez (10-9, 3.48 ERA) will get the ball for the Cards.This has been an unbelievable season for the Brewers, who are still just 2.5 games back of the Cubs for the division lead. They have put together back to back wins, and are now 6-4 in their last 10 games. Time is running out for this team, but they could certainly help their own cause by taking out one of their biggest WC challengers. It will be Chase Anderson (7-3, 2.87 ERA) on the mound for the Brewers.

MLB Picks: The Mariners are just 2 games out of the final spot, a mere half-game behind the Orioles. Analysis: To say that the Wild Card race in the AL is tight is putting things mildly. The Mariners are just 2 games out of the final spot, a mere half-game behind the Orioles. Seattle are going in the wrong direction, though, and have lost 3-straight, taking them to 5-5 in their last 10 games. Making matters worse is the fact that the Mariners are just 13-17 against teams from the East this season. It will be Ariel Miranda (8-6, 4.62 ERA) who starts this one.The Baltimore Orioles have come out of nowhere to haul themselves right back into the playoff picture. They are a game and a half out of the final WC spot, and arrived there courtesy of their current 5-game winning streak. The Orioles have been particularly tough to beat in their own building, going 39-26 to this point in the season. They will send Ubaldo Jimenez (5-9, 6.57 ERA) to the mound for this one.
