Congrats to those who followed our MLB betting predictions yesterday as we had another winning day in the MLB, going 3 for 4. We cashed in on the Phillies and Red Sox on the run line, as well as our underdog pick with the Mets at a nice price. Today we have a great board of MLB action, with the first game kicking off at 12:35 PM EST. My MLB betting predictions today include a run line play for the afternoon Jays vs Yankees game, two money line plays on favorites, and a total play in a big AL divisional match up between the Tigers and White Sox.

MLB Predictions for August 4th:
Toronto Blue Jays @ New York Yankees – The Toronto Blue Jays continue to play solid baseball against the Yankees as they took last night’s game 8-2 and will go for the sweep in today’s afternoon game. The Jays have their ace , Shaun Marcum, on the mound this afternoon, who is 10-4 on the year with a 3.24 ERA. He has been pitching great lately going 3-0 in his last three with a 2.04 ERA. Yankees look to avoid the sweep with Philip Hughes on the mound, who is 12-4 on the year with a 4.07 ERA. Although I think the Yanks may be able to avoid the sweep this afternoon, they probably won’t put up too many runs against the Jays ace, and I like the Jays at a VERY generous price on the run line. PREDICTION – JAYS +1.5 (-120)
Philadelphia Phillies @ Florida Marlins – Last night we played the Phillies on the run line with Doc on the mound and were correct, as the Phillies beat up on the Marlins 6-1. The Phillies will send Kyle Kendirck to the mound for tonight’s game. Kendrick is 6-4 on the year with a 4.44 ERA. The Marlins go with Anibal Sanchez, who si 8-6 on the year with a 3.33 ERA, and 1-0 in his last 3 starts with a very nice 1.71 ERA. Philadelphia will miss Howard’s bat tonight, and the Marlins even up the series. PREDICTION – MARLINS TO WIN (-131)
Chicago White Sox @ Detroit Tigers – The White Sox and Tigers each took a game a piece in their double header yesterday, as the Tigers look to get back into the AL Central divisional race. Starting for the White Sox tonight will be ex-Tiger Edwin Jackson, who was recently required by the Sox from Arizona. Jackson has a 6-10 record this year with an ERA of 5.16. Armando Galarraga will go for Detroit tonight, and is 3-3 on the season with a 4.28 ERA. The over is 8-3 in the White Sox last 11 games overall, and 5-2 in Galarraga’s last 7 starts. PREDICTION – OVER 8.5 RUNS (-112)
Los Angeles Angels @ Baltimore Orioles – The MLB’s last place Orioles took game one of the series last night with a 6-3 win, which was also these two teams first meeting on the season. Tonight the Angels look to get back into their winning ways as they find themselves 8 games back of the division leading Rangers. Ervin Santana will get the start for LA, who is 10-7 on the year with a 3.65 ERA. The Orioles send lefty Brian Matusz to pitch tonight, who is 3-11 on the season with a 5.46 ERA. In his last three starts Matusz is 0-2 with a 12.60 ERA. Angels take game two of this series against the MLB’s worst. PREDICTION – ANGELS TO WIN (-136)
