MLB Betting Roundup – July 30

The 2014 MLB regular season closes-out the month of July with the trade deadline looming. A couple of big-time starters appear to be on the block, but as of Tuesday night’s games the trigger has yet to be pulled on any big-time trades.

The action on the field has been fast and furious since the All-Star break as all six division races have suddenly tightened up. Even Detroit (57-46) is starting to feel the summer heat in the AL Central with a four-game losing streak that has cut its lead over Kansas City (53-52) to just five games.

Baltimore is 7-3 in its last 10 games, but its lead over Toronto in the AL East is down to just 2.5 games in light of the streaking Blue Jays (58-50) winning eight of their last 10 and four straight. This includes multiple wins over both the Yankees and the Red Sox in this division. The Orioles (59-46) took the first of a crucial three-game set against the Los Angeles Angels this past Tuesday night with a 7-6 victory as 125 home underdogs on VietBet’s closing MLB moneyline.

The Angels are now 2.5 games in back of Oakland in the AL West Division race with a record of 63-42. The Athletics (66-40) will wrap-up a three-game series against Houston this Wednesday at home before playing host to Kansas City this weekend.

All three division races in the National League remain tight starting in the NL East where Atlanta has closed the gap to just a half a game with Washington. The Braves (58-49) took three out of four from San Diego this past weekend before losing to the Dodgers 8-4 on Tuesday as 142 road underdogs on VietBet’s closing line. The Nationals (57-47) have lost the first two games of this week’s three-game set against Miami (53-53), which is now just five games off the pace.

The NL Central remains congested with four teams sitting within five games of one another. Milwaukee (59-49) is clinging to a one-game lead after losing its last three outings, while Pittsburgh (57-49) has moved into second place with victories in its last three games. St. Louis is a game and a half back at 56-49 and Cincinnati is now 53-53 on the year after going just 2-8 in its last 10 games.
It is a two-team race in the NL West between the Dodgers and San Francisco. Los Angeles took all three games of a weekend road series against the Giants and with Tuesday’s win against the Braves they are a NL-best 60-47. San Francisco (57-50) is now three games back after losing its last six games.

There is plenty of action on this weekend’s slate so be sure to check VietBet for all the lines as the best MLB betting site for US Players.
