Baseball betting odds will feature inter league play this weekend which includes the sports betting matchup of the Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles. Baseball betting odds have gone up and down on the Braves while the home standing Orioles have again operated in the sports betting red this year.
The Atlanta Braves have begun to resemble their past great teams that regularly succeeded against the baseball betting odds with strong pitching. Atlanta had a sports betting record of 28-28 and what has kept them in the race against the baseball betting odds has been a pitching staff that ranked 8th in the majors with a 4.04 earned run average. The Braves problem has been offense as they ranked only 22nd in the majors for offensive production. Veteran Chipper Jones has been the leader of the lineup against the baseball betting odds as he had a .331 average. Nate McLouth had 10 home runs to lead the Braves in round trippers.
The Baltimore Orioles are firmly ensconced as one of the worst teams against the baseball betting odds. The Orioles are perennial losers and were 24-33 against the baseball betting odds to start this season. Unlike the Braves, Baltimore’s pitching staff has gone to the birds as their staff earned run average of 5.35 ranked 29th in the major leagues. From May 30 through June 7 Baltimore lost 7 out of 8 games. Luke Scott had 13 home runs to lead the lineup while Adam Jones was hitting .346.
The scheduled probable starters against the baseball betting odds for this one are right hander Kenshin Kawakami of the Braves and left hander Rich J. Hill for the Orioles. Kawakami was 3-6 against the baseball betting odds with a 4.62 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he was 0-1 with a 4.34 earned run average. He has never faced Baltimore. Hill was 2-1 with a 5.24 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he was 1-1 with a 7.36 earned run average. Hill is 3-0 lifetime against Atlanta with a 0.94 earned run average.
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.
