Bet on the MLBBaseball betting on Wednesday will feature game 5 of the National League Championship Series with the sports betting matchup of the Phillies and Dodgers from Philadelphia. Baseball betting fans saw a thriller in game 4 as the Phillies rallied for a 5-4 9th inning win as Jimmy Rollins clinched the sports betting payout with a 2-out double.
Philadelphia can clinch their second consecutive National League pennant with a baseball betting win in game 5 on Wednesday.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers for this sports betting matchup are right hander Vicente Padilla of Los Angeles and left hander Cole Hamels of Philadelphia.
Rollins wants to close out the Dodgers on Wednesday with the MLB betting odds.
“The pressure is all on them,” said the game 4 hero. “We have to play our style of baseball and find a way to win one game. We don’t want to go back to LA and give them home advantage. We need to come back ready on Wednesday.”
Ryan Howard is having a monster baseball betting post season for Philadelphia as he is hitting .379 with 7 runs scored, 14 runs batted in, and 2 home runs. Brad Lidge has been a baseball betting asset in relief for the Phillies with 3 saves, a win, and no earned runs allowed. Relief pitching was considered to be Philadelphia’s baseball betting weakness.
It will be tough for the Dodgers to rally from the game 4 baseball betting loss. But if they can the series will go back to LA for games 6&7 and the Dodgers will have new life.
“We have to go out there and play baseball and win one ballgame,” said Dodger manager Joe Torre. “That’s what we need to do. One ballgame and we go home. When you’re in the postseason you certainly have been capable of winning three games in a row. Our mindset is playing one game at a time.
Padilla has been effective in the baseball betting post season for LA with a 1-0 record and 0.63 earned run average.
Hamels has a post season baseball betting mark this year for Philadelphia of 1-1 with a 6.97 earned run average.
Philadelphia has won 25 out of their last 35 home games against the Dodgers.
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.
