WASHINGTON – There are 15 games on Wednesday’s MLB schedule for fans and bettors to enjoy watching and betting on.

Looking at the third game of the day, online sportsbooks have the Philadelphia Phillies listed as the favorites over the Washington Nationals.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals

  • Phillies (-117) vs. Nationals (-103)
  • Over 9 (-115), Under 9 (-105)

The Phillies are seen as the favorites as they have already won the first game of the three-game series with an 8-3 final score.

Being that they won by a five-run margin could certainly be a reason that their odds are favored. The Phillies are also in the midst of a two-game win streak while the Nationals have lost their last two games.

It is clear that the odds are favoring the Phillies for a reason since things seem to be swaying their way recently.

As for the total, in each of their last five games, the total has been hit all five times. In the first game of the series, the Phillies were able to take care of business on their side, but if the Nationals could get things going as well, the over here would be an easy option.

Oakland Athletics Vs. Texas Rangers

The tenth game of the day will see the Oakland Athletics take on the Texas Rangers in which the Athletics are seen as the favorites here.

Oakland Athletics vs. Texas Rangers

  • Athletics (-150) vs. Rangers (+130)
  • Over 9.5 (-120) Under 9.5 (EVEN)

The A’s are seen as the heavier favorites here despite the first two games of the four-game series being split.

Backing up the A’s odds even more in this one is the fact that they have just had a better overall season than the rangers. The A’s are sitting at 21-10 which is good for first in the AL West while the Rangers are at 11-18 which is third in the AL West. Also, The A’s win over the rangers carries much bigger weight than the Rangers win considering the seven-point victory.

Looking at the point total, it is surprising that the over here is favored.

Bettors would expect the A’s to be able to help contribute to the point total but they have only been able to hit the over in three of their last ten games. The Rangers, however, have been able to hit the over in eight of their last 10 games.

If the A’s could get things rolling the over could be a play.

San Diego Padres Vs. Seattle Mariners

On the back end of Wednesday’s games, the San Diego Padres are favored to defeat the Seattle Mariners.

San Diego Padres vs. Seattle Mariners

  • Padres (-220) vs. Mariners (+190)
  • Over 8.5 (Even), Under 8.5 (-120)

The San Diego Padres have seen tons of success recently going 7-1 in their last eight games while the Mariners have gone 5-3.

Although the Padres are favored, the Mariners could pull off the upset here as they did in the first game of the MLB series. Not only did they take the first game but they did it in convincing fashion as they won with an 8-3 final score. If the Mariners can hit the ground running in the second game, they would offer a nice payout.

The game total is favored under being that the Mariners cannot get the ball rolling when they are at bat as they have only hit the over in five of their last 10 games while the Padres have gone over in eight of their last 10.

If the Mariners don’t get it together here as they did in the first game, the under would be the way to go.
