Top MLB Series and Winning Favorites – September 8th

Written by on September 7, 2017

It seems hard to believe, but there are now only 4 full weekends of games left in the MLB series this season. What that means is that time is running out for teams who need to make a move if they have any chance of being involved in the postseason. This is the time of year when every game takes on a much higher level of importance, and not just for those teams scrambling for the limited playoff positions.Teams that are totally out of it will be evaluating their talent over the next few weeks, while those who have a playoff spot locked up will look to continue playing well so that they can enter postseason play on a high. There are a lot of big games coming up this weekend, so let’s get things started by looking at some of the bigger match-ups and MLB betting lines that we can look forward to on Friday, September 8.

Top MLB Series and Winning Favorites – September 8th

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox

It is beginning to look as though the Red Sox are going to hang on and win the AL East, simply because no-one else in the division is really doing enough to run them down. Boston are currently 9.5 games up on the Tampa Bay Rays in the division, but that doesn’t mean that this series is meaningless.Sure, Tampa have almost zero chance of running down the Red Sox for the division, but they are still just 3 games out of the final Wild Card spot in the AL. There are a number of teams ahead of them, and they need a lot to go their way, but they can certainly help their own cause by winning this series.MLB Series Pick: Boston Red Sox

MLB Betting Picks & Predictions for Thursday – September 7th

Baltimore Orioles vs. Cleveland Indians

There is no MLB team hotter than Cleveland right now, as the Indians are currently riding a 14-game winning streak.
