The weekend is here and we’re ready to feature yet another MLB Daily Double. Our streak of 3 consecutive MLB Daily Double winners came to end last night, as the Yankees we’re not able to snap their 3 game losing streak. However, we have had a successful month of August in the MLB and we will be looking to improve on that tonight. As always, make sure you follow us on our social media platforms to stay up to date with all our picks and predictions.

New York Mets vs Atlanta Braves (August 23 – 19:10 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Jacob deGrom (8-7, ERA: 2.61) vs Mike Foltynewcicz (4-5, ERA: 6.09)

Two of the most in-form teams at the moment meet on Friday evening at Citi Field. Both teams have won their last 5 consecutive matches, and will be looking to add a sixth tonight. The Mets have been one of the stories of the season, especially following the All-Star break. They are now 23-7 in their last 30 matches overall. On the other hand, Atlanta will be looking to clinch top spot in the National League East division in the weeks to come. They share an equally impressive form especially when playing on the road. They are the team with the best away record in the last 30 matches, winning 19 in that span. On that note, Atlanta will look to capitalize on the Mets’ pitcher poor form. Jacob deGrom is 2-5 in his last 7 home starts. Expect a tight match-up when the two meet on Friday.


Los Angeles Dodgers vs New York Yankees (August 23 – 22:10 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-3, ERA: 1.76) vs James Paxton 9-6, ERA: 4.53)

The Dodgers open up their series against the Yankees on Friday evening at the Dodger Stadium. The top team of the National League faces the top team of the American League in an exciting match-up. Los Angeles is coming off 3 consecutive wins against the Blue Jays, while New York has now lost 4 consecutive matches. Ryu and the Dodgers have been exceptional at home this season. They have won 51 out of 67 matches on home soil, and will look to improve on that record tonight. Meanwhile, the Yankees have lost 4 out of their last 5 away matches. We are expecting Los Angeles to continue their dominance at home. They are 25-4 in their last 29 home games against a team with a winning record, and will look to take advantage of the Yankees’ recent form.
