Four MLB Games to Consider

Monday has a big lineup of Major League Baseball action but three games have first or second place teams in different divisions or leagues facing off, while one has division rivals going head to head.

The Baltimore Orioles visit the Washington Nationals. The Orioles just won two of three games versus the Boston Red Sox at famed Fenway Park.

The Orioles won in 12 innings on Sunday and were +120 road dogs on Bovada and topbet.

Washington has now won two of its past three games, winning the final two games of a series at home with the Chicago Cubs.

In both wins, Washington on betonline and sportsbook.com was a -175 favorite. The wins moved the Nationals to 5-1 during its current home stand.

Pick: Orioles, OVER

The Pittsburgh Pirates visit the St. Louis Cardinals in a matchup between National League Central division rivals.

St. Louis lost its last two straight to the Miami Marlins, while Pirates swept the Philadelphia Phillies over the weekend to take second place from St. Louis and trail the Milwaukee Brewers by 4 ½.

Pick: St. Louis, UNDER

The Toronto Blue Jays second in the American League East visit the Los Angeles Angels who are currently in second place in the American League West.

Toronto has not had the powerful offense it did earlier in the season and was swept at Oakland in four games over the weekend. The Blue Jays scored just four runs in the four games.

Los Angeles remained hot winning their 10th straight game at home Sunday beating Houston 6-1 to also earn a four game sweep.

The Angels have won 19 of 21 home games since late May and have scored five runs or more in eight straight games at home.

Los Angeles took three out of four against Toronto in Toronto during the early part of May. The Angels are 8-2 head to head with Toronto over the past 10 games.

The Blue Jays are 1-9 over their past 10 games on the road. The UNDER is 9-2 over the past 11 Toronto games.

Pick: Angels, UNDER

The Battle of the Bay Area takes place tonight when the Oakland Athletics host the San Francisco Giants. Oakland owns the best record in the majors at 55-33, after they swept Toronto. Oakland is 9-1 over its past 10 game at home.

San Francisco won two out of three over the weekend from San Diego on the road. However, the Giants are just 6-15 over their past 21 games.

Last season, American League Oakland was 3-1 head to head with their Bay Area rivals from the National League.

Pick: Oakland, OVER
