MLB betting odds multi

A 9-5 effort on Sunday with both feature previews saluting resulting in 22-7 across the weekend with all four best bet previews getting up.

 

Atlanta Braves at SF Giants (6:05am)

Tip: Giants -1.5 (1.91)

The Giants go in to this game just two games behind the Dodgers in the NL West and will need ace Madison Bumgarner (12-8, 2.44 ERA) to be at his best when the series finale against the Braves. In fact, the Giants need to be at their best from here to the close of the regular season as they have been ordinary since the break going 13-24 which has cost them that NL West lead. The Giants have won only one series in the 12 they’ve played since the break and need to win this game to avoid yet another series defeat. Meanwhile the Braves are travelling just as bad, winners in only five of their last 17 encounters. Opposing MadBum will be Aaron Blair (0-5, 7.99 ERA) who has been recalled from Triple A level and still seeking his first victory in his rookie campaign. He faced SF back in June where he last just four innings, giving up three home runs. Tipping this to be an easy victory for the Giants and they should cover their run total of 4.5 as well.

 

KC Royals at Boston Red Sox (10:05am)

Tip:Royals WIN

Boston has gone through a bit of an offensive slump recently which is sometimes expected from a team that owns the best offence in the majors. They busted out somewhat on Sunday putting eight runs on the Royals in a comfortable victory. Boston will need more if they are to catch the Blue Jays in the AL wild card race and keep the likes of Baltimore and Detroit at arms length. The surging Royals are now three games behind Baltimore for the second wild card spot, not losing a series so far in August. They are running hot at the moment, winners in 14 of their last 17 contests. Yordano Ventura (9-9, 4.27 ERA) will get the start for KC and he is 3-0 with a 1.73 ERA in his last four. He effortlessly got through six scoreless innings against Miami in his last start, allowing six hits and striking out just as many. The Royals have shown they can score runs in this series and at their current value straight up it’s too good to refuse.
