MLB Betting Weekend Picks Saturday July 14 and Sunday July 15

Written by on July 13, 2018

This weekend’s top National League MLB betting matchups might not seem familiar. Going into the season, did anyone believe that Arizona vs Atlanta might mean something? In addition to AZ versus the ATL, we also look at the Angels battling the Dodgers in an interleague throw down while Cincy takes on St. Louis.

MLB NL Weekend Picks Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15

Saturday, July 14

Arizona Diamondbacks at Atlanta Braves

Arizona listed starter Zach Greinke has a 3.35 ERA to go along with a 1.15 WHIP. Greinke heads to Atlanta after a less than stellar performance where he didn’t make it to the fifth inning. Does that mean the Atlanta Braves have a shot? It most definitely means the Braves have a shot. The Braves are on a 4 game losing streak when Saturday’s starter Sean Newcomb hits the mound, though. No problem. Eventually, streaks end. Atlanta’s Newcomb streak should end on July 14. MLB Betting Pick: Atlanta Braves

Cincinnati at St. Louis

Cincinnati starter Luis Castillo has been in decent form. In his last, he didn’t pitch that well, lasting only 4 innings versus the Cubs and yielding 3 runs in the process, but before that the Reds had gone 3 and 0 in his last 3 starts. However, Cincinnati and Castillo usually get on winning streaks and losing streaks. There’s a good chance that even if he pitches well, the Reds could have trouble versus the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. MLB Betting Pick: St. Louis Cardinals

Sunday, July 15

Arizona Diamondbacks at Atlanta Braves

Are the Diamondbacks a safe bet this weekend in the MLB? Sunday’s Arizona game appears to favor the Braves. The ATL starts pitcher Julio Teheran, who does have a decent 4.26 ERA. Teheran is a good pitcher while Patrick Corbin, AZ’s starter, has slid under the radar this season. That’s too bad because Corbin has been great in 2018. His 3.09 ERA is fantastic. Colorado beat Corbin up in his last start. No worries. Atlanta bats less than .180 versus the D’Backs’ Sunday starter. Corbin and Arizona should handle the Braves by at least 2 runs on July 15. MLB Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks

Los Angeles Angels at Los Angeles Dodgers

The Angels went 2 and 1 in a 3-game set with the Dodgers last weekend. Is there any reason to believe that the Angles don’t go 2 and 1 versus the Dodgers again on Sunday? Nope. Not at all. So, the key is to know which game the Dodgers will win. My prediction is that they won’t come close to winning Sunday’s matchup. Dodgers starter Rich Hill left the mound in his last with some neck stiffness. The 38-year-old Hill could have some trouble early if Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, and Shohei Ohtani get it going. MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels
