Bet on the MLBBaseball betting has an outstanding Monday feature game of two top sportsbook betting contenders for the American League playoffs from Fenway Park, Boston. Baseball betting fans have seen the Boston Red Sox hit the skids while the Detroit Tigers have been an up and down sportsbook betting commodity.
The Boston Reds Sox began a bad baseball betting stretch from July 18 through August 7 in which they went 7-12 for a sportsbook betting slump that raised alarm with many handicappers. Despite that poor baseball betting stretch the Red Sox remained in the thick of the wild card race as they fell further behind the New York Yankees in the American League east division standings.
Playing at home in Fenway Park could be just what the doctor ordered for Boston as they were one of the top teams in all of baseball betting as a host with a mark of 62-46. Despite their recent baseball betting woes the Red Sox remain one of the better balanced teams that a handicapper can find as they ranked 5th overall in run production and 7th overall in staff earned run average. The Red Sox lineup is lead by Kevin Youkilis who was hitting .310 with 20 home runs and 66 runs batted in.
The Detroit Tigers have been a streaky up and down baseball betting commodity since the beginning of July but have been able to maintain their lead in the American League central division. The Tigers have been ineffective, however, on the baseball betting road as they were 23-33 away from Comerica Park. Just 20 out of those 56 games went over the total. The Tigers ranked 12th overall in the majors for run production and 10th overall in staff earned run average. Miguel Cabrera was having a monster baseball betting campaign with a .331 average along with 22 home runs and 65 runs batted in.
The probable starting pitchers for this one are right hander Edwin Jackson of the Tigers and right hander Brad Penny of the Red Sox. Jackson has been the far better commodity with a record of 8-5 and a 2.62 earned run average while Penny was 7-6 with a 5.20 earned run average.
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.
