Rounding the bases: The best bets in the big leagues

Every week we take a look at the hottest and coldest teams as well as the best over and under bets in Major League Baseball.

Hot team: Cincinnati Reds

Last week: 6-0
Season record: 61-40
Upcoming schedule:  vs. Padres, vs. Pirates

Skinny: The Reds enter action Monday on a 10-game win streak and are 17-2 since the All-Star break. Cincinnati is two wins away from tying the franchise mark for consecutive wins that has been done twice – most recently in 1957.

Cold team: Houston Astros

Last week: 1-6
Season record: 35-68
Upcoming schedule: at Milwaukee, at Atlanta

Skinny: The Astros avoided a 13-game losing streak with a 9-5 victory over the Pirates. Third baseman Chris Johnson was the latest to escape Houston as he was dealt Sunday to Arizona for two minor leaguers . He became the sixth player traded by the Astros this month.

Over team: Minnesota Twins

Last week: 5-1-0
Season O/U record: 50-46-5
Upcoming schedule: vs. White Sox, at Red Sox

Skinny: The Twins offense came alive over the weekend against the Indians. Minnesota pounded 28 runs in the three-game series much to the delight of bettors who took the over. Twins pitchers were equally as bad against the White Sox earlier in the week, allowing 26 runs in the three-game set.

Under team: Tampa Bay Rays

Last week: 5-1-0
Season O/U record: 39-58-5
Upcoming schedule: at Oakland, vs. Baltimore

Skinny: The Rays pitching staff stayed true to form last week, surrendering only five runs in six contests. Tampa pitchers posted back-to-back shutouts against the high-powered Angels over the weekend, solidifying under bets. David Price takes the hill opposite rookie A.J Griffin Monday in another game destined for the under.

So appropriate that this Cincy article was written as the Padres have a 5 run lead in the 6th. Glad I took em, so far.
