Baseball betting Sunday includes the interesting and challenging choice of two of the biggest money losers this season to bet on sports with as Cleveland hosts Oakland. Baseball betting on both teams has been a horrible investment as they have been in the cellar and have given gamblers little incentive to bet on sports with them.
The scheduled probable starters for this sports betting matchup are left hander Brett Anderson of Oakland and left hander Cliff Lee of Cleveland. Lee has been the far better commodity to bet on sports with so far this season. Anderson had a baseball betting record of 4-7 with a 5.45 earned run average. He was really rocked in his last 3 starts as he went 1-1 with a 6.28 earned run average. He has never faced Cleveland in his baseball betting career.
Lee was 4-6 with a sparkling 2.92 earned run average. He was even better in his last 3 baseball betting appearances with an earned run average of 1.96. The Oakland Athletics were one of the biggest baseball betting money losers from June 9 through June 29 as they went 6-13 during that span to fall deep into the American League west division basement. Oakland ranked 23rd overall for offensive production and a respectable 12th overall in pitching with a staff earned run average of 4.24. The A’s were a poor 14-23 on the road. The Oakland lineup was led by Kurt Suzuki who was hitting .284 with 20 doubles, 34 runs, and 31 runs batted in.
The Cleveland Indians were in even worse baseball betting form than the A’s as from June 15 through June 29 they went 2-11. The Tribe was a baseball betting money loser at home with a mark of 17-22. Cleveland does have a good offense as it ranked 6th overall in the majors for run production. Victor Martinez led the lineup with a .316 average, 14 home runs, and 57 runs batted in. Shin-Soo Choo was hitting .296 with 10 home runs and 45 runs batted in.
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.
