Rounding the bases: The best bets in the bigs

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.

For the week of June 10-16.

Hot team: San Diego Padres
Last week: 6-0
Season: 35-34
Upcoming schedule: at Giants, vs. Dodgers

Skinny:
The Friars have strung together six consecutive wins against formidable opponents (Braves, Diamondbacks) to rise above the .500 mark and move within two games of the NL West Division lead.

Cold team: Texas Rangers
Last week: 1-6
Season: 38-31
Upcoming schedule: vs. A’s, at Cardinals

Skinny: The Rangers’ pitching staff is decimated with injuries and their bats have gone cold. Texas has dropped six straight games, scoring just eight runs in the process.

Over team: Miami Marlins
Last week: 5-0-1 over/under
Season: 30-33-5 over/under
Upcoming schedule: at Diamondbacks, at Giants

Skinny: Slugger Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) returned to the lineup on to boost the offense and Marlins pitchers surrendered 6.5 runs per game this past week.

Under team:
Texas Rangers
Last week: 0-7-0 over/under
Season: 24-42-3 over/under
Upcoming schedule: vs. A’s, at Cardinals

As stated above, the Rangers failed to put runs on the board. Texas continues to be an awesome under play to date (24-42-3 O/U).
