Sports Betting Week: MLB Plus PGA Champ

A few short months ago the Houston Astros were dead last in the American League West and big underdogs to win the division. Anyone who wrote them off has been proven wrong, though, as a red-hot Astros squad has climbed to within 2.5 games of the Texas Rangers in those division standings.

Houston heads into a three-game set with the New York Yankees this week having won four straight and seven of their last 10 games. The Astros are also rolling at home right now, on a four-game winning streak with an 8-2 record in their last 10 outings.

Sports Betting Weekend: Tribe Facing O's

Sports Betting Weekend: Baseball Returns

Baseball returns from its All-Star Break on Friday with the latest showdown in the greatest rivalry in the game, the Boston Red Sox at the New York Yankees.

The matchup doesn’t hold as much weight as it has in previous years with the Yankees falling back in the American League East. Boston enters the series having won four straight and six of their last seven games. Against the Yankees this season the Red Sox are 4-2 and they’re also 3-1 in their last four games at Yankee Stadium.
