Bet on the MLBBaseball betting Monday features an American League sports betting matchup of teams that could end up meeting in the ALCS this October as the Yankees host the Angels. Baseball betting fans have made plenty of money off of both teams this sports betting season and expect more profits to continue through the stretch run.
The probable starting pitchers for this baseball betting showdown of first place teams are right hander Jared Weaver of the Angels and right hander Joba Chamberlain of the Yankees. Weaver has been the more effective sports betting commodity as of late.
Weaver has been consistent all year against the MLB betting odds with a record of 15-5 and a 3.76 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 2-0 with a sparkling 1.40 earned run average. Weaver has had good baseball betting success against the Yankees in his career with a mark of 4-1 but with a rather high earned run average of 5.25. Chamberlain has a baseball betting record of 8-5 with a 4.45 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 0-1 with a 6.00 earned run average.
The Angels have been a solid baseball betting asset on the road this year as they were 42-29 with just 29 out of those 71 games having gone under the total. Teams like the Angels are often excellent baseball betting values on the road as you get a quality team at a reduced price. Hitting is the Angels strength as they were 2nd overall in run production while ranking a poor 23rd overall for staff earned run average. The Angels won 7 out of 9 baseball betting decisions from September 4 through September 12.
The New York Yankees were 49-22 at home to rank as one of the toughest hosts in all of baseball betting. Much like the Angels, New York’s strength is their powerful lineup which was ranked 1st overall for run production. New York ranked 15th in staff earned run average and was improving. The Yankees were 30-10 since August 2 as they resembled an ATM machine.
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
