Sorry for the delay between MLB Prediction posts, I have been busy preparing for the NFL season… you can always check out my MLBPredictions.org site where I post my free plays up everyday.
In our last post of MLB Predictions I was two for three for another profiting night in MLB betting. My MLB predictions have been pretty spot on since the all-star break, and I look to continue producing profiting nights and weeks in the MLB! Tonight I have a pretty big board of MLB predictions (5 plays) which includes 3 side plays in the NL, a side play in the AL and a total play in a great divisional match up between the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins.

MLB Predictions for August 18th:
San Francisco Giants @ Philadelphia Phillies – The Phillies took game one of this series by a score of 9-3 last night. The Giants look to even up the series at a game a peice and send Matt Cain to the mound. Cain is 9-9 on the season with a 3.11 ERA. The Phillies are going with Joe Blanton tonight who is 4-6 on the season with a 5.69 ERA. I like the Giants tonight as slight underdogs. PREDICTION – GIANTS TO WIN (-102)
New York Mets @ Houston Astros – These two teams have split the first two games of this series, with the Astros winning 4-3 last night. The Mets have RA Dickey on the mound who is coming off a great complete game shutout start against the Phillies. Dickey is 8-5 on the season with a 2.43 ERA. Houston goes with Brett Myers who is 8-7 on the year with a 3.13 ERA. The Mets are 8-20 in their last 28 road games, and Houston is 10-1 in Myers’ last 11 home starts. PREDICTION – ASTROS TO WIN (-102)
Cincinnati Reds @ Arizona Diamondbacks – I was on the Reds last night as they came from behind to win 6-2 in these two teams first meeting of the season. The Reds have Edinson Volquez on the mound tonight who is 3-1 with a 4.25 ERA on the year, and 2-0 with a 1.53 ERA in his last 3 starts. The Dbacks go with Rodrigo Lopez who is 5-11 on the season with a 4.93 ERA. The Reds are 18-4 in Volquezs last 22 road starts. PREDICTION – REDS TO WIN (-121)
Chicago White Sox @ Minnesota Twins – These two teams are fighting for a division lead and playoff spot, as the Twins won in walk off fashion last night 7-6 in the bottom of the 10th inning. With Gavin Floyd on the mound for the White Sox and Francisco Liriano pitching for the Twins I look for a lower scoring game tonight in what will be a playoff atmosphere at the Target Center. The under is 7-1 in Floyds last 8 road starts and 7-1-1 in the Twins last 9 home games. PREDICTION – UNDER 7 RUNS (+102)
Cleveland Indians @ Kansas City Royals – KC took game one of this series 2-1 with Grienke on the mound last night. The Indians are 2-7 in their last 9 games overall, while the Royals are 6-2 in their last 8 home games. Fausto Carmona is pitching for Cleveland, while lefty Bruce Chen will get the start for Kansas City. I like the Royals to continue to roll at home while the Indians continue to struggle tonight. PREDICTION – ROYALS TO WIN (-109)
