Baseball betting will feature one of the top teams in all of sportsbook betting against one that is on a serious tail spin as the slumping Mets host the Dodgers. Baseball betting fans have made a lot of money off of the Dodgers this year while the Mets have faded fast after a strong and surprising start to the sports betting season.
The scheduled probable starters for this baseball betting matchup are left hander Randy Wolf of the Dodgers and right hander Livan Hernandez of the Mets. Wolf has clearly been the better sportsbook betting commodity, especially as of late.
Wolf has a baseball betting record of 3-3 with a 3.49 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 0-1 with a 4.70 earned run average. He has been strong against the Mets with a lifetime baseball betting record of 11-5 and a 3.30 earned run average. In his only appearance against the Mets this baseball betting season he allowed just 2 earned runs in 7.2 innings of work.
Hernandez has a baseball betting record of 5-4 with a 4.56 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances he really struggled as he was 0-3 with a 6.35 earned run average. He is 9-13 lifetime against the Dodgers with a 4.30 earned run average.
After starting off as the hottest team in all of baseball betting the Dodgers have cooled off and have come back down to earth although they are still way out in front of the National League west and have been one of the most profitable teams on the board. From June 24 through July 5 the Dodgers went 5-6.
The New York Mets have been in the midst of a horrible slump as from June 26 through July 5 they went 2-8 and have been one of the biggest money losers since June 1. The Mets biggest problem is their weak lineup that was ranked 18th overall in run production. Their top home run man was Gary Sheffield, who had only 10.
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.
