Written by on September 29, 2017

It’s that bittersweet time of the year for professional baseball fans, as it’s the final weekend of the regular season, which also means that we are right on the brink of the playoffs. All but one of the 10 playoff spots have been filled, and while that may make it seem as though there are not that many big MLB Series on tap over the weekend, there are indeed a few that are worth your viewing time and your betting dollars. We have that final spot to be filled, some potential playoff previews, and the matter of the HR record to be decided. It promises to be an exciting final few days in the 2017 baseball season, so let’s take some time to check out the series and MLB odds that should have your attention this weekend.

Top MLB Series to Bet on Last Weekend of the 2017 Regular Season

2017 WORLD SERIES POSSIBLE MATCHUPS ODDS

LA Dodgers at Colorado Rockies

The Colorado Rockies will almost certainly be joining their division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks, in the Wild Card game, but you can bet that they would have sooner had the job done before heading into the final weekend of the season against one of the best teams in the league. If the Rockies do get in and are able to get past the D-Back’s, then we could potentially be looking at a postseason preview here. This will be a great chance for Colorado to punch their ticket and give the Dodgers something to think about ahead of the postseason.

  • Dodgers are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games
  • Dodgerareis 6-1 SU in their last 7 games
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of LA Dodgers’s last 5 games when playing Colorado
  • Rockies are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games
  • Rockies are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Colorado’s last 10 games

Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals

The Brewers are now the only team that can catch the Rockies, but they need a sweep and some help in order to make it happen. They are 2 games back of the final Wild Card spot as we head into the final weekend, which sacks the odds very heavily against them getting in. While missing out on the postseason would certainly be disappointing for the Brewers, I’m sure that they are still going to look back at this season with a positive eye. They made a huge leap forward with a young squad and will be one to look out for next season.

  • Cardinals are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games
  • Cardinals are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of St. Louis’s last 11 games at home

Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox

The fact that these two have already booked their place in the playoffs takes a little bit of the shine off this match-up, but you can bet that it’s a series that a lot of people are going to be paying close attention to. The Red Sox had to fight all the way to win their division, while the Astros essentially had things sewn up at the midway point of the season. It would have been easy for Houston to coast in the second half, but they will be coming into this weekend needing only a single win to cross the 100-win mark for the season. That would put them in the same company as the Cleveland Indians and LA Dodgers. Let’s not forget that this may also serve as a preview for a playoff series. The Red Sox host the Astros in their final MLB Series of Regular Season,

  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Boston’s last 5 games

Atlanta Braves at Miami Marlins

Given the use of steroids and other PED’s in recent baseball history, many of the biggest records in the league come with an asterisk attached. Yes, Barry Bonds holds the HR record with 73 in a single season, with Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa all up there, but all three of those players were deemed to be on “the juice.” That is why so many people view the legitimate HR record as being 61, which Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins has a chance to pass this weekend. He comes into the final series of the season with 59 dingers, and if he is somehow able to knock 3 more out of the park this weekend, there will be many wills to view him as the HR champ, even though the record books may not agree.
