MLB Picks September 11: Rays and Yankees Battle in AL East

The MLB season is down to the final few weeks and each game becomes more important for those in the playoff race. The schedule is full for September 11 with the Yankees hosting the Rays headlining the action.

Tampa Bay Rays versus New York Yankees

The top two teams in the AL East battle in this one. Both teams enter play “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator and the Rays have a +27 to +25 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. The teams have been involved in games “under” the line in six of the last ten games combined. The Score Predictor likes the Yankees in a high-scoring game of 8-7 with 72 percent confidence. Note that both teams have been very stable, as indicated by the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Yankees at home but pass on the “over/under” bet.

St. Louis Cardinals versus Pittsburgh Pirates

In this NL Central battle, the Cardinals look to remain in the playoff hunt. The Cardinals are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator and +24 on the Power Ranking Indicator, while the Pirates are “dead” and +12, respectively.  Jose Quintana will pitch for the Cardinals versus Mitch Keller for the Pirates. Quintana is 3-5 with a 3.50 ERA and +364 on the Pitcher Profit Oscillator, while Keller is 5-10 with a 4.22 ERA and -484, respectively. The teams have been involved in games “over” the line in six of their last 11 combined and the Score Predictor likes the Cardinals by a score of 9-2 with high confidence. Go with the Cardinals in a game “over” the line.

Cleveland Guardians versus Minnesota Twins

The Guardians continue to lead the way in the AL Central, but both teams enter playing poorly of late. Cleveland is “ice cold down” and +21 on the Power Ranking Indicator, while Minnesota is “dead” and +5. Shane Bieber is scheduled to pitch for Cleveland. He is 9-8 with a 2.96 ERA and a good bet at +316. The Score Predictor likes the Twins by  7-6 score with 66 percent confidence. The teams have been involved in games “over” the line in four of the last ten games combined. Both teams have been consistently performing with regard to their favorite/underdog status. I like Cleveland in a game “under” the line.

Atlanta Braves versus Seattle Mariners

The Braves are battling for the top spot in the NL East and head to Seattle “burning hot” and +29 on the Power Ranking Indicator. Seattle is “average” on the Team Strength Oscillator and +26 on the Power Ranking Indicator. The teams have been involved in games “over” the line more often than not recently and the Score Predictor has the Braves by a score of 11-2 with 87 percent confidence. Atlanta has been one of the most stable teams in the league at +49 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. Go with the Braves in a game “over” the line.

Los Angeles Dodgers versus San Diego Padres

In this NL West battle, the Dodgers look to remain on top in the division. Both teams enter the weekend “burning hot” and the Padres have a +19 to +18 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. Andrew Heaney is set to face Joe Musgrove. Heaney is 2-2 with a 2.94 ERA and Musgrove is 9-6 with a 3.16 ERA. The teams have been involved in games “over” the line in 11 of their last 12 games, but the Score Predictor has the Dodgers by a 5-2 score with 77 percent confidence. The Dodgers have been extremely stable at +54 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. I see a pitching dual, so go “under” the line with the Dodgers coming out on top.

Washington Nationals versus Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies look to secure a playoff spot as they take on division rivals at home. Washington enters play “average down” and +23 on the Power Ranking Indicator, while the Phillies are “burning hot” after coming off three straight losses and are +7 on the Power Ranking Indicator. The Score Predictor likes the Phillies by a score of 6-1 with 33 percent confidence. The teams have been involved in games “over” the line in 75 percent of their last 12 games. Note that Washington has been more stable, according to the Team Volatility Oscillator. I like the Phillies in a game “under” the line.
