Baseball betting line action Wednesday will include the rematch of last year's baseball gambling playoff series of the Rays and Red Sox. Baseball betting line probable starters will be Scott Kazmir of Tampa and Jon Lester of Boston in the middle game of this initial baseball gambling series.
Kazmir is a left hander that brings solid credentials against the baseball betting line. Last baseball gambling season Kazmir was 12-8 with a 3.48 earned run average. Kazmir is 6-7 in his career against Boston with a respectable 3.61 ERA.
Tampa Bay was the ultimate surprise team last year against the baseball betting line and, as a result, brought along enhanced added value. That is not likely to be the case this season against the baseball betting line as the surprise is gone and the secret is fully out that the Rays are a good young baseball team.
It also stands to reason that Tampa Bay's opponents on the baseball betting line will take them far more seriously than they did one year ago. First baseman Carlos Pena is a key asset for the Rays against the baseball betting line as he is coming off a strong 2008 campaign in which he hit 31 home runs and drove in 102 runs.
The Boston Red Sox are again one of the heaviest favorites on the baseball betting line board. Few teams can match the Red Sox in talent, expectations, and baseball gambling popularity with the public.
The problem with taking Boston against the baseball betting line is that you often will make a big overlay in doing so as the odds makers are fully aware of the public demand for the Red Sox and jack up the price on Boston as a result to scare off action.
Gamblers have to be selective when taking the Red Sox against the baseball betting line as a result. Lester, a left hander, is coming off a strong 2008 season in which he was 16-6 with a 3.21 earned run average. He has been highly effective against the baseball betting line versus Tampa Bay with a career mark of 4-0 with a 3.38 ERA.
