Baseball betting odds Tuesday include an attractive MLB betting matchup between the White Sox and Orioles from Baltimore. Baseball betting odds were in the black for both teams to begin the season and the Orioles were something of a MLB betting surprise to start the year.
The probable starters listed on the baseball betting odds will be right hander Jose Contreras of the White Sox and rookie right hander Bradley Bergesen of the Orioles. Contreras got off to a poor start to the MLB betting season as he was 0-2 with a 6.97 earned run average.
He is 5-4 lifetime against Baltimore with a 4.64 earned run average. This is Bergesen's major league debut as he is expected to be listed on the baseball betting odds board for two starts in an audition to help Baltimore's staff due to the loss of the injured Alfredo Simon. Simon is expected to miss a month of action against the baseball betting odds.
The Chicago White Sox won 7 out of their first 12 games against the baseball betting odds and were a close second behind the Kansas City Royals in the American League central division standings. The White Sox went under the total 7 times in those games. Chicago is coming off a strong performance at Tampa Bay in which they won 3 out of 4 games.
This is the third and final stop for the White Sox on their 9 game road trip which began at Detroit. Carlos Quentin got off to a great start for the White Sox against the baseball betting odds as he had 6 home runs and 11 runs batted in with a .795 slugging percentage. Jermaine Dye was also highly effective with a .357 average and 4 home runs.
The Baltimore Orioles got off to a great start against the baseball betting odds until a recent reality check at Boston against the Red Sox where they came back down to earth. The Orioles did win 6 out of their first 11 games against the baseball betting odds, however, and surprised gamblers with their solid start. Baltimore was trending heavily over to start the year with just 2 unders in those first 11 games.
