Baseball betting odds Tuesday will feature an American League sports betting matchup of top post season contenders as the Texas Rangers host the Detroit Tigers. Baseball betting odds have been profitable on both teams this sports betting season but both clubs have struggled with inconsistency as of late.
The Detroit Tigers have been fighting to stay ahead of the resurgent Chicago White Sox against the baseball betting odds for first place in the American League central division. Detroit has been a poor sports betting commodity on the road this year as they were just 21-29 against the baseball betting odds away from home.
The Tigers have been a strong under team against the baseball betting odds as a visitor with a mark of 17-33 under the total. Detroit’s strength against the baseball betting odds has been their 8th ranked pitching staff. Their lineup has been slightly above average. Miguel Cabrera has been the top producer in the lineup as he was hitting .328 with 19 home runs and 53 runs batted in. Brandon Inge had 21 home runs and 58 runs batted in. Reliever Fernando Rodney had 21 saves.
The Texas Rangers had led the American League west division race against the baseball betting odds for much of the season but have had their share of struggles as of late. Texas cooled off against the baseball betting odds and was playing at a .500 clip since July 7. The big surprise for Texas and the reason for their improvement against the baseball betting odds has been their 13th ranked pitching staff which has paired up nicely with their 11th ranked offense. Nelson Cruz had 23 home runs and 55 runs batted in to lead the Ranger attack while Ian Kinsler had 23 home runs and 59 runs batted in.
The scheduled starters for this one are left hander Luke French of the Tigers and right hander Vincente Padilla of the Rangers. French was 1-1 with a 2.22 earned run average while Padilla was 7-5 with a 4.67 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.
