Baseball weekend free picksThe wild west hasn’t been nearly as wild as it was a year ago thanks to the Oakland Athletics, which have picked up from where they left off late last season when they made a late charge to win their division. The Athletics completed a three-game price per head sweep of the American League West rival Los Angeles Angels this past weekend to open a up a six-game lead over the slumping Texas Rangers in the division, and now they get the chance to beat up on them directly with a three-game set that begins Friday night.

Seattle Mariners @ Baltimore Orioles
Friday, 7:05 PM ET

The Mariners have shown flashes throughout the course of the sportsbook reviews season, but have lacked the consistency required of a playoff team. Seattle has struggled on the road though and will be in tough visiting the Orioles, which are trying to claw back in to the AL East race.

Scott Feldman has gone 2-2 with a 5.12 ERA since Baltimore brought him over from the Chicago Cubs, and the team is going to need more from him the rest of the way. Fortunately for both Feldman and the team, the Orioles’ offense has been pretty good at home and will get the chance to go to work against Aaron Harang, who is just 5-9 with a 4.89 ERA after losing two of his last three starts.

 

MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore Orioles - 160

Toronto Blue Jays @ Los Angeles Angels
Friday, 10:05 PM ET

The Angels haven’t been able to keep pace in the AL West either, and may rank as the second-most disappointing team in their league this sports betting season. Fortunately for Los Angeles, they will host the league’s most disappointing team this weekend with the Blue Jays in town. Toronto has gone from preseason World Series favorites to out of contention in a hurry, and while veteran Todd Redmond has been pretty good for them of late, it’s only a matter of time before he runs in to some trouble. It could be the perfect storm with the Angels’ bats looking to get going, and Tommy Hanson looking to bounce back following one of his worst starts of the season.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels - 140

Texas Rangers @ Oakland Athletics
Friday, 10:05 PM ET

Oakland has been good regardless of whom it has played, but the real sign of a contender has been its ability to take care of business in its own division. The Athletics are an AL-best 29-19 against online betting opposition from their own division, and will have an excellent chance to add to that record against a Texas team that struggled with just two wins in 10 games coming out of the All-Star break. Tommy Milone will get the nod for Oakland in the series opener, with the Rangers looking to avoid a third-straight loss with Alex Ogando on the mound.
