Baseball betting odds for Saturday will include one of the most attractive inter-league sports betting matchups of the baseball weekend from Boston. Baseball betting odds will be set for a pair of leading contenders for sports betting post season action as the Mets and Red Sox will meet at Fenway Park.
The scheduled probable starters against the baseball betting odds for this sports betting matchup are right hander Mike Pelfrey for the Mets and right hander Josh Beckett for the Red Sox. Pelfrey has a record against the baseball betting odds of 4-1 with a 4.61 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he is 1-1 against the baseball betting odds with a 3.15 earned run average. He has no career appearances against the Red Sox.
Beckett is 4-2 against the baseball betting odds this year in 8 appearances with a 5.85 earned run average. He has been even more effective against the baseball betting odds in his last 3 appearances as he was 2-0 with a 3.79 earned run average. He has a career mark against the baseball betting odds versus the Mets of a nice 6-2 with a 2.50 earned run average.
The New York Mets were in a back and forth fight with the Philadelphia Phillies for first place in the National League east. The Mets strength against the baseball betting odds is their pitching staff, which ranked 5th overall in the majors with a 3.90 earned run average. Pitching is what is expected to carry the Mets through the season and into post season contention. The offense ranked in the middle of the pack. Carlos Beltran led the lineup with a .367 average and 6 home runs. From May 4 through May 18 the Mets were in good form with a mark of 11-4.
The Boston Red Sox cooled off in the middle of May with a mark of 1-4 from May 13 through May 17. Jason Bay has had a hot bat with 11 home runs but the pitching staff ranked only 20th in the majors with a 4.75 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.
