Baseball betting odds feature an important American League central sports betting matchup between the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox. Baseball betting odds have bruised both teams as of late as neither has been profitable over the past week of sports betting action.
Detroit had a 29-25 record and the top spot in the AL central. The Tigers were the only team in the division that was above the .500 mark against the baseball betting odds. From June 2-6, however, Detroit lost 4 out of 5 sports betting decisions.
The White Sox were 26-29 and in 3rd place in the AL central. They lost 6 out of 9 games against the baseball betting odds from May 28-June 6. Chicago’s main weakness has been their lineup as they ranked just 26th overall in offensive production. Jermaine Dye has 14 home runs to lead Chicago but the top hitter, AJ Pierzynski, was hitting just .303. Chicago went under in 33 out of their first 55 games.
Interestingly enough, The Tigers ranked in the top 10 against the baseball betting odds for both hitting and pitching which leads many handicappers to expect that they will turn profits and contend for the division title. Detroit’s top hitter was Miguel Cabrera who was hitting .354. Curtis Granderson led in homers with 13. The Tigers have gone over the total in just 21 out of 54 games.
Tuesday’s scheduled probable starters against the baseball betting odds are left hander Dontrelle Willis of Detroit and left hander Mark Buehrle of the White Sox. Willis is 1-3 against the baseball betting odds with a 6.84 earned run average. He has been even worse in his last 3 starts with a mark of 0-3 and a 9.64 earned run average.
Buehrle has been highly effective against the baseball betting odds this year with a record of 6-2 and a 2.91 earned run average. In his last 3 starts his earned run average was 3.22. He is 14-8 lifetime against Detroit versus the baseball betting odds with a 2.86 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.
