After taking a few days off on vacation I am back at it with some MLB Predictions. After a great few weeks with my MLB betting I went on a bit of a rough patch the last week and look to get fully back on track to continue profiting like I have been all season. Tonight’s plays will all come from the American League, and will include two road underdogs and a total play in a match up between two division leaders. I am confident in today’s plays and think we have a good chance at a nice profit tonight (Tuesday, August 10th), good luck!

MLB Predictions for August 10th:
New York Yankees @ Texas Rangers – This will be a great series featuring two teams who lead their respective AL divisions. The Yankees have the upper hand against the Rangers in past years as they are 36-16 in their last 52 meetings with Texas. Tonight the Yankees will go with AJ Burnett, who sat out his last start because of back soreness. Burnett is 9-9 on the year with a 4.93 ERA. The Texas Rangers will send lefty CJ Wilson to the mound, who is 10-5 on the year with a 3.30 ERA. The under is 8-3 in the Yankees last 11 road games, while the under is 7-1-1 in the Rangers last 9 home games. PREDICTION – UNDER 9.5 RUNS (-105)
Boston Red Sox @ Toronto Blue Jays – The Jays are coming off a three game series sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, while the Red Sox split their four game set with the Yankees, as both teams try to fight back into the wild card race. Boston will have Daisuke Matsuzaka starting tonight, who is 8-3 in 2010 with a 3.96 ERA. Lefty Ricky Romero will be throwing for the Jays, who is 9-7 on the season with a 3.37 ERA. Boston is 8-0 in their last 8 games against Toronto with Matsuzaka pitching, and are 8-1 in their last 9 games in Toronto. PREDICTION – RED SOX TO WIN (+116)
Tampa Bay Rays @ Detroit Tigers – The Rays are fighting for a division lead with the first place Yankees, while the Tigers have pretty much fallen out of contention in the AL Central as they have dropped 21 of their last 27 games. On the mound for the Rays tonight is rookie Jeremy Hellickson who will make his second appearance. In his first game Hellickson got the win, as he pitched 7 innings giving up only 3 hits. Detroit will go with Max Scherzer tonight, who is 7-8 on the season with a 4.19 ERA. Tampa Bay is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 meetings, and the Tigers are 1-5 in their last 6 home games. PREDICTION – RAYS TO WIN (+104)
