Major League Baseball Predictions

Major League Baseball Predictions

Inform your Major League Baseball predictions ahead of this week's biggest matches with Pinnacle's weekly update, including analysis, team news, and the latest baseball odds.

There are only a few weeks of the regular season left before the playoffs begin in October. Both the division and Wild Card races are incredibly close, so there are still plenty of meaningful games left in September. With another exciting week of baseball on the cards, let’s analyse some of the biggest series.

Boston Red Sox at Texas Rangers predictions

The Boston Red Sox were in the Wild Card hunt at the trade deadline, but they have since sunk to last place in the AL East. The New York Yankees, who were in horrible form in August, have managed to leapfrog the Red Sox and climb out of the basement of the division.

Boston seem to have accepted their fate of not making the playoffs since they have placed Jarren Duran and Triston Casas, two of their most promising young players, on the injured list, effectively ending their season.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, it won’t get any easier this week as they travel to Texas to play the red-hot Rangers, who still need every win they can get in the AL West race. Texas are in the middle of a three-team battle with the Houston Astros and Seattle Mariners for the AL West title, so they need to capitalise on games against non-playoff teams like the Red Sox.

Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves predictions

In an NL East battle this week, the Philadelphia Phillies travel to Atlanta to take on the Braves. Atlanta have already won the division title and secured a spot in the playoffs, so there is little on the line for the hosts besides chasing history and breaking records – but this Braves line-up is unlikely to be taking anything lightly.

Atlanta will want to continue to showcase their dominance before the postseason starts, and that means Ronald Acuña Jr., Matt Olson, and Austin Riley are likely to play every game.

During this series, the Braves will likely send Spencer Strider and Bryce Elder in the final two games, which means Atlanta will be heavily favoured in both of those matchups. Continue to back the Braves until they show any signs of weakness.

Baltimore Orioles at Houston Astros predictions

One of the most exciting series of the week takes place in Houston as the Astros host the Baltimore Orioles. Both teams are in a fight for their respective division title, with the Orioles projected to finish first in the AL East after surpassing the Tampa Bay Rays.

As for the Astros, they currently top the AL West, but only just, as the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners are right on their coat-tails. Houston’s playoff spot is by no means secure, so they need to continue to rack up the wins to stay out in front.

The pitching between these two teams is full of star quality, with Justin Verlander, Framber Valdez, Kyle Bradish, and Tyler Wells all scheduled to take the mound during the series. Expect a number of low-scoring games between these two elite American League teams.

San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers

A tough few weeks have put the San Francisco Giants out of the playoff picture. They were expected to take one of the Wild Card spots just a few weeks ago, but some bad losses at bad times have them missing the postseason as things stand, despite being only two games back.

As for the Los Angeles Dodgers, they have already clinched the NL West and remain one of the best teams in the National League.

The Dodgers are expected to send Clayton Kershaw, Bobby Miller, and Lance Lynn to the mound this weekend, which should make this a very difficult series for the visiting Giants.

Between Los Angeles’ offence - ranked second in the league for runs - and starting pitching, the hosts should continue to dominate the NL West and win yet another series en route to the postseason.
