Baseball bettors will want to keep a close eye on these MLB odds before the break
 | News Article by

The days leading into the MLB All-Star break can be some of the toughest times for baseball bettors. After taking to the diamond day after day, some teams are counting down the minutes until time away from the game. Other clubs are looking to close out the first half of the schedule in style.

If you’re betting on the MLB odds between now and Sunday – the last day before the mid-summer hiatus – keep an eye on these MLB baseball lines for these teams and their motivation.

Beware: Los Angeles Angels (46-45, -6.89 units)
The Angels hoped to be in the mix in the American League West, with a surplus of talent on their roster heading into the 2018 season. However, a terrible rash of injuries has left this team thin on the mound and in the lineup, and the Halo’ wheels have wobbled in recent weeks.

Los Angeles has just 16 wins since June and has been terribly inconsistent due to plugging holes in the rotation, bullpen, and batting order. The Angels have started to get healthy, slowly inching Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani back into action after an elbow surgery scare, and hoping a few pitchers can come back after the break.

The final week before the All-Star Game has the Angels at home to the streaking Seattle Mariners before making the trip down the highway to play a series with the rival Dodgers over the weekend. The Halos’ probable pitchers are yet to be set, but you can be assured this weary club can’t wait for some time to lick its wounds.

Buy: Oakland Athletics (51-40, +12.88 units)
Sticking to the American League West, the Athletics have been a big surprise this summer – and not the only shocker in the division as well, with Seattle playing above expectations. Oakland is probably the hottest team in the big leagues, winning eight of its last 10 games and posting a 17-4 mark since June 16.

An uptick in offense has been the backbone of this run, with the A’s knocking home 5.47 runs per game in that 21-game span. They finished June hitting .324 and are recording an average of .270 in July. That’s not to take away from what the pitching staff has done either – specifically the bullpen, which ranks among the best in the AL with a group ERA of 3.56 and 27 saves.

The All-Star break comes at a bad time for the red-hot A’s, who offer great value on the road before some down time. They’re providing good underdog profits in Houston and finish out the week at San Francisco. With this team in contention for a Wild Card spot – and many players competing for their futures – expect a solid finish to the first half from Oakland.

Beware: Philadelphia Phillies (50-38, +12.11 units)
Yep. Beware the National League East leading Philadelphia Phillies in the home stretch before the All-Star break. This team is cruising along with seven wins in its last 10 games and a 15-7 record since June 16, overtaking the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals for the division lead. But this is a young team that lacks that veteran leadership to stay focused when off-field activities creep into mind.

This week is especially trying for the Phillies, who find themselves playing three different teams between now and Sunday. Philadelphia wraps a series in New York Tuesday and Wednesday before a makeup game in Baltimore Thursday, and flying to Miami – of all places to be distracted – for a three-game weekend series.

The Phillies are among the best home bets in baseball, with a 30-16 record inside Citizens Bank Park bringing in +11.93 units of profit. But away from home, the club is just 20-22 (+0.18 units) and lugs a 4.20 road ERA with it – compared to just 3.54 at home in 2018.
