Baseball betting Thursday includes a resurgent favorite against one of the least profitable teams in sportsbook betting in an American League east matchup. Baseball betting has finally seen the New York Yankees show signs of life and sportsbook betting contention while the Baltimore Orioles continue to flounder in the basement.
The scheduled probable baseball betting starters for this matchup are right hander Adam Eaton of the Orioles and right hander Joba Chamberlain of the Yankees.
Eaton has gotten off to a terrible start to the sportsbook betting season. In 7 appearances for Baltimore he has a baseball betting record of 2-4 with a 7.93 earned run average. In his last 3 appearances he has been even worse with a baseball betting mark of 1-1 with a 9.00 earned run average. Eaton is 2-1 lifetime against the Yankees with a 5.17 earned run average.
Chamberlain has a baseball betting record of 2-1 with a 3.76 earned run average. He has a career baseball betting record against Baltimore of 2-0 with a 4.50 earned run average.
The Baltimore Orioles continue to be one of the worst teams in all of baseball betting. Pitching is the weakness of the Orioles as they ranked 28th in the major leagues with a terrible 5.60 earned run average. The offense was middle of the pack at 14th. Adam Jones has had the hot bat in the lineup with a .370 average and 8 home runs.
The New York Yankees were riding a 6 game winning streak from May 13 through May 18. The hot hand put the Yankees back into baseball betting contention in the AL east as they were closing in fast on the Boston Red Sox for 2nd place. Pitching has been the problem for New York as their staff earned run average of 5.32 ranked 26th in the majors. The offense was far more effective and ranked 8th. Johnny Damon has had the hot bat for New York as he was hitting .322 with 10 home runs. Just 15 out of New York’s first 38 games went under the total.

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.
