Major League Baseball has reached a weekend full of action. There is some great games going on this weekend on the diamond. Let’s review some of the top Major League Baseball betting picks for the upcoming weekend.

Top MLB Bets for the Weekend

On Friday – take the underdog, New York Yankees in the rivalry game against their all time Nemesis, the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees are at home, and they have Michael Pineda on the mound. He will take on a tough Rick Porcello in this game. Porcello has been fantastic, but look for the Yankees to rough them up a little bit. One of the top bets for the Major League Baseball weekend is the New York Yankees +104 over the Boston Red Sox on Friday.

Another top Major League Baseball bet for the weekend is the Chicago White Sox on Friday. The White Sox have the best record in the American League Central, and have Mat Latos on the hill. The veteran has been sensational since coming over from the National League. Look for him to shut down a poor hitting Minnesota Twins team. A top Major League Baseball bet for the weekend is the Chicago White Sox -125 over the Minnesota Twins on Friday.

On Saturday, Adam Wainwright is going to win his third straight start, and even his record back up. He goes for the St. Louis Cardinals against Jeff Locke of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Both teams need a win, but in this game, the home team is going to find a way. A top Major League Baseball bet for the weekend is the St. Louis Cardinals -110 on Saturday over the Pirates.

The Washington Nationals are going to beat the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Gio Gonzalez gets a chance to take on the Chicago Cubs in this game. Jason Hammel is on the mound for the Chicago Cubs. Gonzalez has been tough this season, and Hammel has been unhittable. Look for that to change, as Washington will touch him up. Bet the Washington Nationals +113 over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

On Sunday – one of the top Major League Baseball bets for the weekend is the Los Angeles Dodgers. Of course, Clayton Kershaw is on the mound. I don’t care what the odds are – if Kershaw is pitching, it’s a great bet. The Dodgers are at the long ball hitting Toronto Blue Jays, but who cares. Take the Los Angeles Dodgers -144 over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.

The final game on Sunday is Jeff Samardzija and the San Francisco Giants over the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies are certainly a better hitting team at home than they are on the road. Samardzija has a chance to win his fifth game of the season. Look for the new pitcher for the Giants to be strong in this game. The bet for this game is the San Francisco Giants -140 over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

There you go. That’s a good look at the Top Major League Baseball bets for the weekend. Best of luck and enjoy the games!
