Baseball betting odds include an attractive American League Central sportsbook betting matchup of leading contenders for the division crown. Baseball betting odds have treated the upstart Kansas City Royals well so far while the Chicago White Sox have been an up and down sportsbook betting commodity.
The probable starting pitchers on the baseball betting odds board should be right hander Gavin Floyd of the White Sox and right hander Kyle Davies for the Royals. Floyd has gotten off to a poor start against the sportsbook betting board in 2009 as he is 2-2 with a high 5.79 earned run average in his first four starts.
Floyd has had poor luck against the baseball betting odds versus Kansas City with a career mark of 1-4 but a respectable 3.41 earned run average. In a previous start against the Royals this year Floyd allowed just 2 earned runs in 7 innings but got charged with a loss, which is illustrative of his record versus KC and the baseball betting odds. Davies has a mark of 1-1 and a 4.88 earned run average. Davies has a lifetime mark of 2-2 against the baseball betting odds versus Chicago with a 4.46 earned run average.
The White Sox have operated in the middle of the pack so far in the AL central division race. They split their first 24 games on the schedule with a perfect 12-12 mark on the over/under baseball betting odds for those games as well. Chicago has ranked near the lower third for both offense and pitching to begin the season. They dropped six out of ten games against the
The Kansas City Royals were atop the AL central with a mark of 14-11 in their first 25 games against the baseball betting odds. The Royals were also one of the most profitable teams on the board as they bring added-value being a team that has been a traditional loser for so many years. It's likely that KC will maintain some better than expected value for the foreseeable future and potentially be the Tampa Bay Rays of 2009. Kansas City's success is due to their excellent pitching staff, which ranked 5th best in the majors.

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.
