Red Sox look to get back on track on Monday

After losing four-straight games against the Yankees, the Red Sox are in desperate need of a win on Monday against the Kansas City Royals. 

Boston Red Sox To beat the Kansas City Royals
1.42 Odds

Fortunately for them, they'll send Rick Porcello to the mound and hold 1.42 moneyline odds per Sports Interaction against Kansas City. We'll take them to take down the Royals to help kickstart a new run at an AL Wild Card spot. 

Yankees will stay hot against the Orioles

After destroying the Boston Red Sox over the weekend, New York is rewarded with a series against the lowly Baltimore Orioles. Could another sweep be on the way?

New York Yankees Win Tuesday vs Baltimore Orioles
1.46 Odds

On Tuesday night, the two teams will open up the series and the Yankees will be monster favorites. Go ahead and bet them with confidence here. 

Astros Staying as Hot as Ever

After acquiring Zack Greinke from the Diamondbacks, the Astros are listed as the favorites to win the World Series.

Hard to argue after their starting rotation somehow got better. Oh and by the way, this weekend, they'll have a series with Baltimore. Those poor, poor Orioles. 

Houston Astros Win Friday vs Baltimore Orioles
1.39 Odds

The three-game set will start on Friday night, when Houston will look to start things off with a bang. They should have little trouble getting the job done. 

Cardinals and Pirates ready for weekend series

The Cardinals are in a see-saw battle with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central standings. A weekend set with the Pirates will be massive for them. 

Pittsburgh vs St Louis Pirates Defeat Cardinals
2.50 Odds

While we expect St. Louis to win the series, look for the Pirates to possibly steal a game from St. Louis on Sunday. No one will be happier about that potential upset than Chicago.
