Gambling911.com has some free MLB betting picks for Thursday August 19, 2021 with all lines courtesy of BetOnline here.  They offer a true dime line up to -190 for the best payouts in online baseball wagering.


Hot Teams

AL East

Tampa Bay Rays - The Rays are winning around 70% of their games of late and own a 71-47 record, four games up from the imploding Red Sox and 7 up from the Yankees.

New York Yankees - They were winning around 70% of their most recent 10 games now and were nine games above the .500 mark with a 65-52 record coming into Monday.  

Toronto Blue Jays - At 63-54, this is a team that can certainly be wagered on.  Like the Yankees, they are winning around 70% of their last ten games of late.


AL Central

Chicago White Sox - 68-50 was their record.  But the White Sox were playing just .500 baseball at the moment, perhaps because they are in such a comfortable lead in the AL Central.  They were 10 up from the Cleveland Indians.


AL West

Oakland Atheltics - They were playing at an 80% winning rate and own a 68-50 record.  The A's were 2.5 games under a now struggling Astros squad.


NL East

Atlanta Braves - Heading into Monday, they were now up a game over the Phillies and playing at an 80% win rate. They owned a 62-56 record.

Philadelphia Phillies - At 61-57 the Phillies were playing at a 60% win rate.


NL Central

Milwaukee Brewers - They own a 72-47 record and are playing at close to a 70% win rate at the moment.  What's not to like?

Cincinnati Reds - Down 8 games from the Brewers coming into Monday, the Reds are still solid and own a 64-55 record.  They are playing at around a 60% win rate.

St. Louis Cardinals - At 61-56, the Cards have been playing at an 80% win rate recently.


NL West

San Francisco Giants - They are playing at an 80% win rate and are 4.5 games above the Dodgers.

LA Dodgers - LA is playing at around a 70% win rate after struggling a bit. They still own a 71-46 record and one should have no qualms when it comes to betting on them.

Ice Cold Bullpens

Colorado Rockies - The Rockies have the worst bullpen ERA in baseball right now (5.45).

Top Trends (Coming Into Monday)

  • The UNDER is 9-4 in the last 13 games between the Cardinals and Brewers.

Game Watch 

1. Brewers @ Cardinals 7.5

Brewers Brandon Woodruff (7-6, 2.18) vs. Jon Lester (4-6, 5.32)

Lester pitched well in Saturday's victory over the Royals, surrendering just one run on seven hits across 5 2/3 innings.  But he had a few no decisions before this one.  In two of those three games, their opponents only scored a single run.

Woodruff won this last start.  Brewers opponents have scored no more than 4 runs in three of their last four games.

Go With The UNDER 7.5.

It's both a gift and a curse at the same time.  Tiger Woods going deep in any Majors tournament means greater viewership and, by default, more wagering.  But most of the bets will be made on Woods.  If he wins, the books lose.  Though the liability is less than in the past, it's still present.
