2013 MLB Betting – MLB Weekend Picks For Games On Saturday, July 20

Game 1: Los Angeles Dodgers @ Washington Nationals – Saturday, July 20

The online sportsbook reality behind this game is that it will be very hard to pick against the Dodgers, chiefly because of the man who will be their starting pitcher in this contest. It’s true that Washington starter Gio Gonzalez reached the 20-win barrier last year, but he hasn’t been as good this season. Meanwhile, Los Angeles starter Zack Greinke is on a big-time roll. Greinke won the first 1-0 complete game of his career this past Saturday in a dazzling performance against the Colorado Rockies. Greinke has given up no runs in his past 16 innings of work, while surrendering a total of only four hits and three walks. He’s collected four base hits as a hitter in his past two games. He’s running the bases well and fielding his position, doing everything he can to lift the Dodgers upward in the National League West. Los Angeles rallied over the past month, shrugging off a miserable two-month stretch in April and May. The Dodgers are now in second place in their division and have a very real shot at the playoffs. They’re going to be motivated to start the second half on a strong note, but what really matters is that they’ll have a confident starting pitcher on the mound in the nation’s capital city. Take the Dodgers in this spot.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers

Game 2: Seattle Mariners @ Houston Astros – Saturday, July 20

In a perusal of 5dimes reviews, one might find the Seattle Mariners to be a subpar baseball team.. and that is very much the case. However, when compared to the Houston Astros, the Mariners look like a very solid ballclub. The Mariners are headed nowhere as a franchise, but the Astros are in even worse straits. Seattle’s offense has posted 373 runs in the first half of the season, and only three American League teams have scored fewer runs. One of them is Houston, with 351 runs, next to last in the Junior Circuit. When one then realizes that Seattle is sending its second-best starting pitcher, Hisashi Iwakuma, to the bump in this game, the Mariners become that much more of a logical selection. Houston also hasn’t decided on its starting pitcher for this game, but no matter which man the Astros pick, the Mariners will hold the cards in this pitching confrontation.

MLB Betting Pick: Seattle

Game 3: San Diego Padres @ St. Louis Cardinals – Saturday, July 20

No matter what kind of betting software you use, the premier online betting sites in the country would probably pick the Cardinals in this game. St. Louis merely has the best record in baseball, while San Diego has the worst record in the National League West. Only two teams in the Senior Circuit have worse records than the Padres, who fell apart in the first two weeks of July. It’s really hard to see how San Diego should gain any piece of leverage in this game or receive the benefit of any doubt. The Cardinals are the obvious choice, and they should relish this chance to improve their record over the course of the weekend.
