Baseball betting odds will be posted on two teams with both a lot of MLB betting questions and reasons for hope. Baseball betting odds on Milwaukee will be based on a team coming off their first playoff appearance in 26 MLB betting seasons.
The Brewers had a strong finish against the baseball betting odds last year to finish with an overall MLB betting record of 90-72 and a wild card playoff berth. Good balance was the big reason for Milwaukee's success against the baseball betting odds last year.
The big question is whether or not the Brewers can sustain their success against the baseball betting odds without their most important workhorse from 2008, pitcher CC Sabathia, who "went green" with a massive contract from the New York Yankees.
The Brewers pitching staff ranked 2nd in the National League last year and will face a stiff challenge in maintaining that success. Milwaukee's opening day starter is scheduled to be Jeff Suppan, the righthander, who had a 10-10 record last year with a 4.96 earned run average.
Suppan has been average against the baseball betting odds when pitching against San Francisco as he is 3-4 in his career against the Giants with a 4.99 earned run average. Left fielder Ryan Braun will be a significant key for the Brew Crew as he is coming off a fantastic season in which he hit .285 with 37 home runs and 106 RBI.
The San Francisco Giants are coming off their fourth consecutive losing season against the baseball betting odds. The best thing for the Giants is that last year's MLB betting season in which they finished 72-90 is a distant memory and a leaner and younger Giants team has some experience under their belts which should enhance their value against the baseball betting odds this year.
Right hander Tim Lincecum is the scheduled starter for the Giants opener with Milwaukee against the baseball betting odds. Lincecum will make the Giants a consistent favorite against the baseball betting odds as he was the 2008 Cy Young winner with a record of 18-5 and a 2.62 earned run average.BetRoyal.com will post baseball betting odds for this one and all of the other action all season so be sure an open your account today!
