Bet on the MLBBaseball betting Wednesday includes an American League sports betting matchup of one of the best against one of the worst as the Yankees host the Royals. Baseball betting fans of a generation ago recall the days when a sports betting matchup of these two teams would be for all the marbles but that is sadly no longer the case.
The probable starters for this baseball betting get together are right hander Robinson Tejeda of Kansas City and right hander Joba Chamberlain of the Yankees. Tejeda has been, surprisingly enough, the more effective sports betting commodity against the MLB betting odds this year and especially as of late!
Tejeda had a baseball betting record of 4-2 with a 3.41 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances he went 2-1 with a 4.11 earned run average. Tejeda has struggled against the Yankees, however, as he has a career baseball betting mark of 0-3 with a 7.36 earned run average.
Chamberlain had a baseball betting record of 9-6 with a 4.72 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances he went 1-1 with a poor 7.62 earned run average. He is 0-0 in his career against KC but with a 1.98 earned run average.
The Kansas City Royals have once again maintained their traditional and habitual status as one of the worst values on the baseball betting board. The Royals were 63-92 and one of the biggest money losers on the board since May after a deceptively good start in April. Kansas City is bad in all aspects of the game as they ranked 23rd in hitting and 27th overall in pitching. The Royals have actually been a little bit better value on the road than at home with a mark of 31-44. Just 30 out of those 75 games went over the total.
The Yankees have been an ATM machine at home with a mark of 54-23. New York has the top ranked batting order in the game and ranked 14th in staff earned run average with much improvement shown after ranking near the bottom after the first two months of play.
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.
