It is Thursday, September 2nd, 2021 in Major League Baseball and we have eight games on the schedule to go over. Let's look at the odds and picks for these games in the MLB. 

Oakland Athletics -170 Detroit Tigers +150 Total: 9

The Athletics need to pick up games like these and I think Sean Manaea sets them up well. The Tigers' Matt Manning has an ERA above 5.40 and I think the A's get to him here.

Pick: Oakland A's -170

Philadelphia Phillies TBA Washington Nationals TBA Total: TBA

It looks like the Phillies' Aaron Nola and the Nationals' Paolo Espino will meet here in the makeup game from last night's rainout. I give the edge to the Phillies who are playing well and cannot afford to drop these games, even on the road. 

Pick: Philadelphia Phillies ML

Milwaukee Brewers +135 San Francisco Giants -155 Total: 8

I will take the plus money with the Brewers in this spot, as they have already shown they can compete with the best team in baseball even on the road. Eric Lauer has allowed two or fewer earned runs in four of his last five starts for Milwaukee. I think he and the Brew Crew are worth the +135 odds. 

Pick: Milwaukee Brewers +135

Boston Red Sox +135 Tampa Bay Rays -155 Total: 8

Shane McClanahan of the Rays has shown why he was the top pitching prospect of the Rays heading into the season. I think the Rays hit Boston's Eduardo Rodriguez hard and earn another victory at the Trop. 

Pick: Tampa Bay Rays -155

Miami Marlins +155 New York Mets -180 Total: 7.5

The Mets are going to look to keep things rolling after sweeping the doubleheader on Tuesday. I expect runs to be hard to come by, and that is exactly why we see a low total at 7.5. I will take the under. 

Pick: Under 7.5

Pittsburgh Pirates +100 Chicago Cubs -120 Total: TBA

I will take a shot with the Pirates on the road here with Mitch Keller. Keller has obviously not had a strong MLB career so far but we know he has good stuff, he just has to locate. A road game against the lowly Cubs may be what Keller needs to earn his fifth win of the season. 

Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates +100

Cleveland Indians -120 Kansas City Royals +100 Total: 8.5

Although the Royals are red hot, I will take the Indians as the road favorites here. After a bad start to the season, the Indians' Triston McKenzie has proven why he was a top prospect for the Indians for so long. McKenzie has racked up the Ks and I think he earns another win on Thursday night. 

Pick: Cleveland Indians -120 

Atlanta Braves -140 Colorado Rockies +120 Total: 11

With no official starter for the Rockies listed, I think the best option we have is to take the over. The Braves lineup should be a tough one to face at Coors Field for the Rockies pitching staff. We know the Rockies' bats show up at home as well, so I will take the over. 

Pick: Over 11
