Gambling911.com has some free MLB betting picks for Tuesday August 24, 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 76-48 record and they will need to keep playing hard to ensure a resurgent New York is kept at bay.

New York Yankees - They were winning around 90% of their most recent 10 games now and were now at 62-52 and just four games down from the lead.   Great value now to win the World Series after opening as the favorite with a payout of $950 on every $100 bet.


AL Central

Chicago White Sox - 72-52 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 11.5 up from the Cleveland Indians.


AL West

Seattle Mariners - Though 5.5 games behind Houston and 3.5 games behind Oakland, the Mariners own a 68-58 record and continue to play best in this division currently.  They have won 70% of their most recent games.  They are playing Oakland, a team that appears to be imploding.


NL East

Atlanta Braves - Heading into Monday, they were now up four games over the Phillies and playing at an 90% win rate. They owned a 65-56 record.


NL Central

Milwaukee Brewers - They own a 74-47 record and are playing at close to a 80% win rate at the moment.  What's not to like?


NL West

San Francisco Giants - They are playing at an 80% win rate and are 3 games above the Dodgers.  They are 78-43.

LA Dodgers - The Dodgers are back!  They are playing at a 90% win rate. They own a 75-46 record.

Top Trends (Coming Into Monday)

  • White Sox are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Toronto.
  • There have only been two OVERs in the last ten meetings of the White Sox vs. Blue Jays series.
  • The UNDER is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in Oakland when facing the Mariners.

Game Watch 

1. Mariners @ Athletics

Mariners Chris Flexen (10-5 3.65) vs. Athletics Cole Irvin (9-11, 3.57)

Flexen has not had a win since August 4. He yielded two runs -- one earned -- in seven innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Rangers.  That should have been an easy win for him after leaving the game 6-2 but instead the Mariners gave up the lead in the ninth.  Seattle is still 16-7 when Flexen pitches. He has a 2.92 ERA in four starts this month.

Cole Irvin pitched six innings of three-run ball for the victory Thursday as the A's edged the White Sox 5-4.

The Athletics continue to blow leads to close out games.

With the Mariners a +130 dog here and Flexen really needing this win, we will be on Seattle


Another strong day yesterday with the UNDER in the White Sox-Blue Jays game Monday night making for three straight wins.
