Baseball betting odds will include an American League sports betting matchup of one of the hottest teams in baseball against one of the coldest. Baseball betting odds have been clicking for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim while the Kansas City Royals have again been one of the worst teams in sports betting.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers on the baseball betting odds board will be right hander Ervin Santana of the Angels and left hander Bruce Chen of the Royals. Neither has been much of a sports betting asset so far this year.
Santana has a record against the baseball betting odds of 2-5 with a 6.70 earned run average. In his last 3 games he was 1-2 against the baseball betting odds with a 5.29 earned run average. Santana has surrendered 9 home runs in just 48.1 innings of work. Santana is 2-2 lifetime against the Royals with a 4.31 earned run average.
Chen is 0-4 with a 6.86 earned run average. In his last 3 starts against the baseball betting odds he went 0-3 with a 7.90 earned run average. The Angels have been one of the hottest teams against the baseball betting odds as of late. From June 23 through July 19 they went 16-6 against the baseball betting odds and climbed to the top of the American League west division standings.
The Angels are a team of extremes as they rank 2nd overall in Major League Baseball for run production but rank just 27th overall in pitching. The powerful lineup as led by Torii Hunter, who has become a leading asset against the baseball betting odds Hunter was hitting .305 with 17 home runs and 65 runs batted in. Jendry Morales was hitting .291 and also had 17 home runs along with 52 runs batted in.
The Royals were expected to be a contender this year but again are gushing red ink. From June 17 through July 19 Kansas City went 8-20 and was trying to fight off Cleveland to avoid the basement of the AL central.
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.
