New York Mets (1.78) vs Philadelphia Phillies (2.10)
The Mets are 5-5 in their last ten. They won their last two games, 9-4 and 9-7 against the Yankees in their last. They are favourites here but will face a strong and in-form Phillies side.
The Phillies are in wonderful form, going 9-1 in their last ten. While most MLB betting sites favour a win for the Mets, this will not be an easy game for the New York side.
Phillie’s batsman Didi Gregorius has been in fine form this season and picked up 2 homers in their last game, which was a 6-5 win over the reigning champs the Washington Nationals.
Pick the New York Mets to win.

Los Angeles Angels (2.03) vs Houston Astros (1.85)
The Angels are rock bottom in the AL West, going 4-6 in their last ten games. They need to drastically improve their game if they hope of making it to the World Series 2020/21.
The Astros sit second in the AL West and go 6-4 in their last ten games. They recently went 2-1 in the head-to-head series with the Rangers, winning the last two games leading up to this one.
This game marks the first in a 4-game head-to-head series between these two teams. Both teams will be keen to get off the mark with a win and we feel it’ll be the Angels to do it at their home stadium.
Take the Angels to win.

Oakland Athletics (1.68) vs San Diego Padres (2.28)
The A’s lead in the AL West and boast an excellent home record this campaign of 13-4. It will be a tough game for the Padres, as they look to grab a win away from home.
The MLB betting odds favor a win for Oakland and given how they’re playing at the moment we can see why. This is the first of three back-to-back games between these sides before the A’s face their immediate rivals the Astros.
The Padres are looking very strong in the NL West, going 23-16 for the season and winning 6 of their last 10 games. The Padres are only second to the MLB leaders, the Dodgers. If star batsman Fernando Tatis Jr. can turn up in this one they’ll fancy themselves.
Expect a win for the A’s.
