The MLB season is nearly one-quarter complete and teams are beginning to show if they have what it takes to make a run into October. There are several key games for Monday, May 15 with the Yankees and Blue Jays battling in the AL East as the featured game.
Los Angeles Angels versus Baltimore Orioles
Baltimore comes in “burning hot” having won their last two and four of their last six. Los Angeles is “ice cold down” and are 2-4 in their last six. The Orioles have a +21 to +8 edge on the Power Ranks Indicator. The teams have been trending on opposite sides of the “over/under” line, and the Score Predictor has Baltimore by an 8-3 score with 34 percent confidence. Both teams have been consistently performing with regard to their favorite/underdog status. I like Baltimore at home but pass on the over/under bet.
New York Yankees versus Toronto Blue Jays
In this AL East battle, the Yankees are 4-2 over their last six games and the Blue Jays are 3-3. New York is “average” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator and +26 to +7 on the Power Ranks Indicator. The teams have been trending in games “over” the line, but the Score Predictor sees a low-scoring 4-1 win for the Yankees with 47 percent confidence. Toronto has won two of the first three meetings between the teams this season. New York has been more stable, at +14 to +6 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Yankees in a game “under” the line.
Philadelphia Phillies versus San Francisco Giants
The Phillies come into play “burning hot” versus “average” on the Team Strength Oscillator and +24 to +16 on the Power Ranks Indicator. Bailey Falter is scheduled to pitch for the Phillies. He is 0-6 and a poor bet at -$346 on the Pitcher Profit Oscillator. The teams have been trending in games on opposite sides of the line over their last six and the Score Predictor likes the Phillies by an 8-3 score with 63 percent confidence. San Francisco has been unstable at -1 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Phillies on the road but pass on the over/under.
Milwaukee Brewers versus St. Louis Cardinals
In this NL Central clash, the Cardinals come in 3-3 over their last six and the Brewers are 3-3 during that stretch. St. Louis has a +28 to +6 advantage on the Power Ranks Indicator. The teams have been involved in games “over” the line in nine of their last 12 games. The Score Predictor likes the Cardinals by a 9-2 score with 43 percent confidence. The Cardinals won two of three games in Milwaukee earlier this season. Neither team has been particularly consistent with regard to their favorite/underdog status. I like the Cardinals at home in a game “over” the line.
Chicago Cubs versus Houston Astros
Both teams are 3-3 over their last six, but the Astros are “burning hot” versus “average” due to a two-game winning streak. Houston has a +13 to +3 advantage on the Power Ranks Indicator. The teams have been trending in games nearly even over and under. The Score Predictor likes the Cubs by a 6-1 score with 35 percent confidence. Both teams have been woefully unstable, at -4 each on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Astros a home but pass on the over/under bet.
