Baseball betting odds have seen a surprise team emerge from the American League west as the Texas Rangers have been one of the most profitable teams in sports betting. Baseball betting odds were not supposed to be in the Rangers favor this year but they are arguably the biggest surprise so far in baseball sports betting after 2 months of play.
The scheduled probable starters to be posted on the baseball betting odds board are left hander Brett Anderson of Oakland and left hander Matt Harrison of Texas. Neither pitcher has been all that effective this sports betting season.
Anderson has a record against the baseball betting odds of 2-4 with a 4.98 earned run average. He has been better in his last 3 appearances against the baseball betting odds, however, with a record of 2-1 and a 3.52 earned run average. He has only 5 career innings of work against Texas and sports a 1.80 earned run average.
Harrison is 4-4 so far this year against the baseball betting odds with a 5.43 earned run average. He has struggled in his last 3 appearances against the baseball betting odds with a record of 1-2 and a 6.63 earned run average.
The Texas Rangers were 26-18 against the baseball betting odds after 2 months of play to lead the AL west by 3 games over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Texas has always had the reputation of being a strong offensive team and that is again the case this year against the baseball betting odds as their lineup ranks 8th best in all of baseball. Pitching has been the problem for Texas through the years and while their staff earned run average of 4.54 ranks only 18th in the majors, it’s a marked improvement from the past. Nelson Cruz has belted 12 home runs so far this year while Michael Young was hitting .337. From May 2-25 the Rangers were a strong 16-6 in one of the most impressive runs by any team this season.

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.
