MLB Upcoming Games Betting Predictions Preview
It may not quite be time for the MLB regular season, but there are plenty of games to enjoy throughout the Spring training period. You may think that betting on these matchups isn’t worth it, or that they’re too unpredictable; that’s not the case. Getting into the games at this stage is the best way to prepare for the season. Let’s see what we have coming up this weekend on Bet Today USA.
Tigers vs. Phillies
Last season was one that came and went without much to note for the Detroit Tigers. Fans and players alike finished the 2019 season with more questions than answers, and this year the focus needs to be on moving forward.
They lost an incredible 114 games in a single season, and by the end, you could see that the players couldn’t wait for it to be over. This season is all about avoiding another intense period of disappointment. Expectations were already low last season, but this year nobody backs them to win anything.
The Phillies didn’t have a good season either, and their only highlight was the performances of star player Bryce Harper. He may have set the bar high with fans starting the campaign with hopes of the playoffs, but Harper’s teammates didn’t get the memo.
One thing’s for sure, and that’s the fact that Harper may look elsewhere if his colleagues don’t step up to the plate this time around. The world of baseball will be watching this Spring training with a keen eye on the Phillies.
Mets vs. Marlins
The Mets were another team with high expectations last season that they failed to live up to, period. There was excitement around new signing Jed Lowry, but for one reason or another, including injuries, he was unable to deliver.
This year they need to do better, as the size of the franchise won’t allow for more disappointment at that level. If they can get it together over the next four weeks, they could be the surprise package of the season. The Mets have a lot of work to do.
Trades cost the Marlins big-time last year in the MLB, and they never recovered from losing the heart of their team in the off-season. Brian Anderson was the only man out there that looked like he could make a difference.
It may sound bleak, but the Marlins could also surprise a team or two this MLB season. If they can get a run of form together and build around Anderson, their outfield will be in much better shape than what we saw in 2019.
The regular MLB season will be here before you know it, but for now, we’ll keep you up to date with all the goings-on across Spring training. Check back for regular updates as we count down to the first significant games at the end of March. We’ll have daily previews and MLB predictions here, so stick with us!
