MLB NL Betting Picks for July 21 and July 22

Saturday, July 21

L.A. Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers

Dodger pitcher Clayton Kershaw takes the mound on Saturday versus a battle with the tough Milwaukee Brewers. The Brew Crew averages a .240 batting average versus Kershaw. Doesn’t sound great, but since it’s versus Kershaw, it’s actually pretty good. LAD’s bullpen hasn’t played well this season. There’s a good chance that Milwaukee busts up Clayton. Even if they don’t, they’ll bust up the Dodgers’ bullpen. Milwaukee is more than a solid play to beat the Dodgers on Saturday even though Manny Machado is now in Dodger blue. MLB NL Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers

St. Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs

The Cards gave up 9 runs to the Cubs in a 6 to 9 loss on Thursday, July 19. On Saturday, they list Luke Weaver as their starter. His 4.72 ERA isn’t great. It’s not all together horrible, though. Also, it should be noted that Luke Weaver’s been en fuego. In his last 14 innings pitched, he’s allowed a combined 5 hits and 3 earned runs. He’s struck out 14 batters. The Cubs and Tyler Chatwood will be favored in this a matchup. That’s good news for those who believe Weaver keeps the good times rolling. I’m a believer. I like the Cardinals. MLB NL Betting Pick: St. Louis Cardinals

Sunday, July 22

Are the Braves a safe bet to win on Sunday?

Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals

Washington is hoping 12 and 5 Max Scherzer pitches for at least 7 innings versus the Atlanta Braves. Scherzer can do it, no doubt. But, Atlanta hits .250 versus Scherzer. That’s one of the best batting averages against Max of any team in MLB. Atlanta’s responded when Sunday starter Mike Foltynewicz takes the mound. The Braves are 4 and 1 straight up in their last 5 games when Foltynewicz starts. Foltynewicz has a 2.66 ERA which almost puts him in Scherzer company. The Braves can upset the Nationals on Sunday. MLB NL Betting Pick: Atlanta Braves

Colorado Rockies at Arizona Diamondbacks

D’Backs starter Zack Greinke could get overplayed in this spot. His ERA of 3.18 and 10 and 5 record makes him the favorite over Jon Gray and the Colorado Rockies. But, Arizona, surprisingly, ranks 28th in hitting. That means, Colorado could get to Greinke before the D’Backs get to Gray. Here’s another MLB matchup this weekend where the likely dog, the Colorado Rockies, look strong enough to back. MLB NL Betting Pick: Colorado Rockies
