With the All-Star game completed, we now turn our attention to the betting baseball in the second half of the season. What teams should we be looking at to start quickly or slowly immediately?
Keep reading to think about for your MLB picks.
Seattle starts the second half on the road, where they have been fighting an uphill battle all season with a 16-25 record (-5.8 units). The Mariners might actually have a shot to win series in the opening weekend against the Chicago White Sox, but the following series is in Houston, which will be troublesome. Seattle has a 27-22 record at Safeco Field, nonetheless, they have dropped nine of past 11 there and they will have AL East powers the Yankees and Red Sox next, which should send them further below .500.
Though Cleveland has not been overwhelming, they closed the first half on a 16-9 run and took over first place in the AL Central. Look for the Indians to keep building on their lead against pedestrian competition and they should start with a winning road trip to the Bay Area against mediocre teams like Oakland and San Francisco.
