The Major League Baseball season started last week, and while it takes a while for ‘form' to settle down I thought I would highlight a few key games and players to watch over the weekend games. Eventually, advice will be provided via the private FormBet Tipster Service, via WhatsApp. Shocks can and do occur in the early season so keep stakes small if you are playing and the information will build as I have more time through the year to post more detailed stats and analysis.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS @ 5/7 – The Dodgers are away but they are at Coors Field, which is a hitter friendly park. With the likes of JUSTIN TURNER (one of the best hitters on the slate and is equally effective against left or right-handed pitchers) , CHRIS TAYLOR, JOC PEDERSON and CODY BELLINGER in the line-up, they could have a field day, backed up by my high-rated pitcher KENTA MAEDA who could be a value pitcher play in Fantasy contests.

HOUSTON ASTROS @ 10/17 – COLLIN MCHUGH (pictured above) is one of the best pitchers on the slate with a 0.91 Siera, 47.4% K% (strikeout rate) and 18.5% Swinging Strike-rate. ALEX BREGMAN is a batter to keep an eye on with 73 RBI (runs batted in) and 23 home-runs against right-handed pitchers. MICHAEL BRANTLEY is another with a good record against righties with 134 hits and 63 RBI against right-handed hitters and just an 8.4% K% rate. 

TAMPA BAY RAYS @ 4/5 – Focusing on pitching, TYLER GLASNOW is one of the best pitchers on the slate and up against a poor San Francisco offense, so he could rack up some points on the Fantasy sites. For the TB offense, TOMMY PHAM is of interest, one of the best hitters and especially so against right-handed pitchers with 108 hits resulting in 15 Home Runs and 50 RBI's.

ST LOUIS CARDINALS @ 4/7 are one of the strongest favourites on the main slate and young pitcher JACK FLAHERTY is a solid option for starting pitcher on the Fantasy sites. With HARRISON BADER, PAUL GOLDSCHIMDT and MATT CARPENTER all solid against left-handed pitchers, they are one of the sure fire bets tonight.

All 4 teams can be backed in a 4-fold with Bet365 paying 6.95/1 for the accumulator. You can also back all 4 on the handicap with a -1.5 run at 24.12 with Betfair.
