Bet on the MLBBasboeball betting Monday will feature a potential American League playoff sportsbook betting matchup as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim host the Detroit Tigers. Baseball betting handicappers will have their choice of two division leaders in this sportsbook betting matchup and a potential pitcher’s duel as well.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers are right hander Justin Verlander of the Tigers and right hander Jared Weaver of the Angels. Both have had fine baseball betting campaigns thus far. Verlander had a sportsbook betting record of 13-7 with a 3.29 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 1-2 with a 3.27 earned run average. He is 0-2 lifetime against the Angels with a 4.55 earned run average. Verlander is one of the best strikeout pitchers in baseball betting with 204 K’s in 175 innings of work.
Weaver had a baseball betting record of 13-4 with a 3.89 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances Weaver was 2-1 with a 4.58 ERA. He has had mixed results against the Tigers as he is 2-1 lifetime but with a 7.08 earned run average.
Despite their status as the leader of the American League central division the Tigers have not been a strong baseball betting commodity on the road this year as they were just 25-37 away from home with just 23 out of those 62 games having gone over the total. From August 13 through August 22 Detroit went on a nice baseball betting run in which they got the cash in 6 out of 9 games. Miguel Cabrera was having a monster season for the Tigers as he had a .335 batting average with 24 home runs and 73 runs batted in.
The Angels have been a solid baseball betting commodity at home with a mark of 36-22 as just 22 out of those 58 games went under the total. The Angels have been one of the most profitable teams on the board this year. Juan Rivera led the lineup with a .307 average along with 20 home runs and 71 runs batted in. Chone Figgins was hitting .303 with 37 stolen bases.
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.
