It’s going to be another great weekend of baseball action. We’ve taken the liberty of looking ahead at the schedule for the upcoming weekend. We’ve found a couple of games that we think you can put into a parlay and be successful. Let’s take a look at each of those two games, and we’ll give you our MLB Betting predictions for each.

Problems in the Windy City
What a four-game series we’re going to see this weekend, as the New York Yankees come to the Windy City to take on the Chicago White Sox. The Yankees head into Wednesday night’s action with a 21-8 record, winning eight of their last 10. The White Sox have also been on a hot streak as of late, also winning eight of their last 10.
We really like the Yankees in Friday night’s game. There are two reasons we like the Yankees: Reason #1 is Gerrit Cole, and Reason #2 is Dallas Keuchel. Let’s talk about Cole first. Cole last pitched on Sunday against the Texas Rangers. He went 6 innings, giving up five hits and one run, while striking out 10. In his last 19 innings pitched, he’s struck out 25. The White Sox have been hitting the ball well lately, but they are prone to striking out a lot, so this bodes well for the Yankees.
Now on to Reason #2, Dallas Keuchel. Even though he pitched well in his last outing against Boston, the veteran hurler has had a rough season. He has a 6.86 ERA and a 2.10 WHIP this season. With a powerful lineup like New York’s, we predict problems for Keuchel.
While this should be a very competitive series, we like the Yankees to win on Friday night.
Pitcher’s Duel in Hollywood
The Philadelphia Phillies head to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers this weekend. Saturday’s pitching matchup has caught our betting eye. The Dodgers will send Walker Buehler to the mound, while the Phillies will counter with Ranger Suarez. Who is Ranger Suarez you may ask? Well, Suarez has been on his game as of late. He is 3-1 on the season with a 3.68 ERA. In his last outing, he tossed six shutout innings against the Seattle Mariners. He struck out seven and earned his third victory of the season. He has great stuff, and he can entice batters to swing at his off-speed pitches.
For the Dodgers, Walker Buehler will toe the rubber. Buehler has been tremendous this season, coming into this one with a 4-1 record. Buehler last pitched on Sunday, limiting the Chicago Cubs to one run in his seven innings. He earned the victory, allowing four hits, and striking out seven. He enters Saturday’s game with a 1.96 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP.
Both of these teams have very strong lineups, but we think that the pitchers will get the best of this one. We suggest taking the under in this game, as we don’t see a lot of runs being scored.
