Baseball betting on Thursday will feature what is one of the best sportsbook betting matchups of the entire weekend as the Dodgers and Cubs meet at Wrigley Field, Chicago! Baseball betting on the Dodgers has been like printing money while the Cubs have gotten off to a shocking start during the sportsbook betting season and are in a recent tailspin.
The scheduled probable starters for this baseball betting matchup are left hander Randy Wolf for the Dodgers and right hander Randy Wells of the Cubs. Both pitchers have been highly effective so far in the young sportsbook betting season.
Wolf has a baseball betting record of 2-1 with a 3.02 earned run average in 10 appearances this year. In his last 3 starts he is 1-0 with a 3.15 earned run average. He has not had a lot of baseball betting success against the Cubs, however, as he is 3-7 with a 4.71 earned run average. Wolf is a good baseball betting strikeout pitcher as he has whiffed 50 batters in 62.2 innings of work.
Wells has only 3 baseball betting appearances this year but has a nice 1.50 earned run average and a record of 0-1. He has never pitched against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers have been the most profitable team in all of baseball betting. They won 31 out of their first 46 games and were way out in front of the National League west. The Dodgers have dominated both at the plate and on the hill as they rank 2nd in both offense and pitching. The lineup is led by Orlando Hudson who was hitting .344, and Casey Blake who had 9 home runs. From May 13-25 the Dodgers went on yet another strong baseball betting run in which they won 9 out of 12 games.
The Chicago Cubs lost 8 consecutive games from May 17-25 to fall below .500 at 21-22 and into 4th place in the National League central. The Cubs ranked just 20th on offense and 19th in pitching. The Cubs were expected to win the division but have been inconsistent all season.

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.
