I’m ready for PLAYOFF BASEBALL, MLBbro.com fam!

Sure, the regular season has a few more days left, but I’m hoping to keep loyal readers rolling in the dough with a few future picks to end the 2023 postseason. Who wins the NL? How many contenders are there in the AL? I got you, and I’m calling my shot on a bro-filled World Series winner…

 

NLCS Winner: As much as I’d love to see the Phillies (and MLBbro Fly Tai Walker) make it back to the World Series, this year it’s been all about the Atlanta Braves (+150) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (+200). The NLCS should see these two teams matched up, and what a show the Braves offense should put on. Their two MVP candidates in Matt Olson (53 HRs, 134 RBIs) and Ronald Acuna Jr (41 HRs, 70 SBs) are providing outstanding run support to the deepest stable of starting pitchers in the league.

 

 

The Dodgers may not have as potent an offense, but they have a couple of MVPs of their own in Mookie Betts (39 HRs, 106 RBIs) and former Brave Freddie Freeman (.333 Batting Average, 101 RBIs). The biggest question mark will be their thin pitching roster. How much will they miss Julio Urias? Will their relievers and closer hold up under postseason pressure? I can’t answer those questions, but I bet their skipper Dave Roberts can.

With his experience guiding his team through multiple postseason runs and winning a title in the bubble, he should put them in position to make it to the World Series. AGAIN.

 

National League Leaders. Dodgers +200 to win the NL.

 

 

ALCS Winner: The AL is as wide open as the Pacific Ocean. The Rays have come back to earth after a scorching start, and the upstart Orioles are the best team in the AL by the numbers. But neither will be in the ALCS. Mark my words, Dusty Baker will not only make the wild card, but he will take the Houston Astros (+600) to the ALCS. There they will lockhorns with MLBbro Marcus Semien and their division rival Texas Rangers (+350). The battle of Texas will be wild, but I’m leaning on the Astros to pull it off. Just like the Dodgers and Dave Roberts, Paw Paw Dusty has made all the right moves since helping the Astros win their first (in some people’s eyes) legitimate World Series title in their history. Texas has a bright future, but their inexperience will ultimately be their demise.

 

Dusty will clean up. Astros +600 to win the ALCS.

 

 

2023 World Series Champion: Once you pick your jaw up from my AL pick, let’s savor the flavor of the ultimate revenge World Series between the LA Dodgers (+450) and Houston Astros (+1200). Sure, the Astros have all but cleaned house with the last remaining player from “Trash Can Gate” being Jose Altuve (.316 Batting Average, 17 HRs). Yeah, they now have one of the most beloved managers in Dusty Baker. But the Dodgers and their fans have been seeking vengeance every since they pulled out the 2017 championship in controversial fashion. The look on Clayton Kershaw’s (13 wins – 4 losses, 2.42 ERA) face after giving up back-to-back bombs will forever haunt the Dodger faithful. Now is their chance to deliver some of their own poetic justice.

 

 

The Astros, however, are still defending champions. That’s without trash cans and with the institution of the electronic sign delivery system. That’s with home grown talent such as “Air” Yordan Alvarez (31 HRs, 97 RBIs) and Framber “La Grasa” Valdez (3.45 ERA, 200 Ks). That’s without any love from the national media and with the immense pressure of proving they can win without any illegal edge. With all that, there’s also one of the best managers in MLB history in Dusty Baker. It will be a great matchup, but ultimately karma will come back to bight the ‘Stros.

Come uppins. Los Angeles Dodgers (+450) World Series Champions

The Playoffs Are Funny So Get This September Money | SeanBo Will Lead You To The Bag

Clear your schedule, MLBbro.com fam. We have three picks to set off your hot streak. Take a seat, take a peek, and let’s get that bookie beat!

 

1. Two teams with very little to play for are the New York Yankees (-165) and Pittsburgh Pirates (+140). Even with the Pirates having the home field advantage, they will struggle mightily against the Yankees’ ace, Gerrit Cole (13 wins – 4 losses, 2.79 ERA). With the Pirate’s bottom five ranked offense, Cole could be pushing his numbers closer to Cy Young winning levels.

 

Cole as ice. Yankees RL -1.5 (+105)

 

2. In a possible playoff preview, the Miami Marlins (+162) face off with the league leading Atlanta Braves (-195). Miami won’t have their best on the mound, though, as Johnny Cueto (1 win – 4 losses, 6.15 ERA) seems to have lost the velocity and overall filth that put him in elite status just a handful of seasons ago. Bryce Edler (12 wins – 4 losses, 3.38 ERA) will look to carve up the Marlins for a seafood feast.

 

Bros’ best bet! Braves ML (-195)

 

3. The AL East may have three teams in the playoffs if the Toronto Blue Jays (-130) can make short work of inter division rival Boston Red Sox (+110) on Friday. Even with Red Sox starter Brayan Bello (12 wins – 8 losses, 3.68 ERA) and Toronto’s right-hander Jose Berrios (10 wins – 10 losses, 3.63 ERA) both sporting sub-four ERAs, the offense has been hot and we’re eyeing that over for the win. 

Bats will sing! Red Sox/Blue Jays OVER 8.5 Total Runs (-120)

SeanBo Is Hotter Than The Summer Right Now | Scared Money Don’t Make MLBbro Money

We’re absolutely ROLLING in the wins, MLBbro.com fam! We close out our daily best bets going 3-1 on the week. Let’s keep the momentum strong on a Friday with these three winners.

 

1. After getting railed by the Red Sox, the Houston Astros (-178) look to get back on track against the struggling Detroit Tigers (+150). They should have a leg-up in the pitching matchup as Framber Valdez (9 wins – 9 losses, 3.55 ERA) hopes to end the month of August the same way he started it when he pitched a no-hitter on the first. With the Tigers’ ranked in the bottom five in every offensive statistical category, it could be a short day for the Astros in Motown.

Tigers tamed. Astros RL -1.5 (+100)

 

2. These are dark days in New York. With both the Mets and the Yankees (+115) giving little for the greatest fans in baseball to cheer for, the Tampa Bay Rays (-135) look to pour it on the Bronx Bombers. Even with Yankees’ ace Gerrit Cole (10 wins – 4 losses, 3.03 ERA) taking the mound, the Rays’ fourth ranked offense in baseball should run the Yankees out of the ballpark. Cole will put up a solid outing, but without the run support (Yankees are currently 29th in batting average, 29th in hits, and 24th in runs) we doubt it’s enough for a win.

 

Bros’ best bet! Rays ML (-135).

 

3. It’s always a good time when the Atlanta Braves (-160) are in town. The league leaders travel to do battle with the San Francisco Giants (+135), and the last time these two teams linked up they gave us some exciting moments in Atlanta. Even though Giants’ starter Logan Webb (9 wins – 9 losses, 3.57 ERA) and Braves’ starter Spencer Strider (14 wins – 4 losses, 3.57 ERA) are giving up less than four runs on average, both offenses have been potent as of late and should hit the over.

Barn burner! Giants/Braves OVER 7.5 total runs (-115)

SeanBo Says Eat Everything With Curry This Weekend | The Taste Is Rich

Now that the dust has settled after the trade deadline, let’s get to the best days of baseball, MLBbro.com family! The chase is on for the playoffs, and we’ve got three picks to get your bankroll chunky for the postseason. 

 

1. The Tampa Bay Rays (-180) are looking to reclaim the top spot in the AL East, but recent news that their ace Shane McClanahan is done for the year puts a huge load on the rest of the pitching stable. Their recent addition Aaron Civale (0-1, 6.23 ERA) is looking to bounce back from a horrible debut to get the Rays back into the division leader role.

 

The Cleveland Guardians (+150) are also chasing the division leading Twins, but their pitching rotation has grown stronger throughout the year. Civale’s former team will march out MLBbro Xzavion Curry (3 wins – 1 loss, 2.95 ERA) hoping he can continue to his rookie year dominance over his former teammate. Although he’s facing a top 10 offensive team in the Rays, I have a feeling the Rays’ recent run of bad luck will continue against the young Melanated Mound Marauder.

 

X marks the spot. Cleveland Guardians ML (+150)

2. The New York Yankees (-102) have yet to catch a much-needed winning streak. Going nearly .500 in the month of August is not getting them closer to a playoff berth. Their Friday opponent Miami Marlins (-118) are also chasing a wildcard spot in their less competitive National League but continue to falter going three wins and six losses so far in August.

 

The Marlins should have the edge against the Yanks as their starter Jesus Luzardo (8 wins – 6 losses) will be serving cheese to every Bronx Bomber at the plate. With 155 strikeouts, Luzardo should feast on the 29th ranked batting average of the Yankees and their rookie starter Randy Vasquez (1 win – 1 loss, 1.17 ERA). Although Vasquez has a rock bottom ERA and simply filthy pitching power, his lack of run support (22nd in runs scored) will make it a tough go in South Beach.

 

Stanky Yankees. Marlins ML (-118).

 

3. The Chicago Cubs (+138) is the other team competing with the Marlins for that last wildcard spot in the NL. Standing in their way Friday is the Toronto Blue Jays (-161) and starter Jose Berrios (9 wins – 7 losses, 3.38 ERA). Cubs starter Javier Assad (1 win – 2 losses, 3.35 ERA) hopes to get the best of the Blue Jays’ top 10 ranked offense, as his own run support currently ranks fifth in the MLB. 

Bros best bet! Cubs RL +1.5 (-144)

It’s Not The Weather That Has You Dripping | SeanBo’s Bets Are On Fire

Welcome back, MLBbro.com family! We hope you all have those air-conditioners turned up in the midst of this nationwide heat wave. While you stay cool, we’re staying HOT with our three MLB picks this Friday.

Not quite as hot as the big boss Rob Parker when he finds out they raised the prices for soda at his local wing joint, but that’s neither here nor there.

 

ANYWHO…let’s get to the picks!

 

1) The San Diego Padres (-145) are hoping to get on a hot streak of their own, as they hope to avoid one of the most disappointing seasons of their history. After showing glimpses of greatness last year, they’re hoping righty Seth Lugo (3 wins – 4 losses, 3.78 ERA) can get them back on the same track they were on during their 2022 playoff race.

The Detroit Tigers (+122), meanwhile, are on a mini-streak of their own (two wins counts as a streak right?). Unfortunately for them and their rookie starter Reese Olson (1 win – 3 losses, 3.96 ERA), the trends would say that streak ends. Road favorites are currently winning at a 65% clip.

Ride the heat wave. Padres ML (-145)

2) In a battle of division leaders, the Milwaukee Brewers (+105) host the Atlanta Braves (-125). Neither team is bringing their best to the mound, as the Braves’ Mike Soroka and the Brew Crew’s Freddy Peralta are both uncomfortably over a 4.25 ERA. With each teams’ offenses humming, this should be a barn-burner.

Bros Best Bet. Brewers/Braves Over 9 total runs (-110).

3) The unicorn closes out our day, as Shohei Ohtani (7 wins – 5 losses, 3.5 ERA) and the Los Angeles Angels (-195) hope the Pittsburgh Pirates (+162) can’t stand the SoCal heat. Pirates’ starter Johan Oviedo (3 wins – 10 losses, 4.53 ERA) has been ice cold. Losing all five of his last starts doesn’t bode well for the black and yellow, but will Shohei still have the same velocity with his blistered finger?

No sweat. Angels RL -1.5 (-115)
