Bet on the MLBBaseball betting Monday will feature an American League central division sportsbook betting matchup of teams still in divisional and wild card playoff contention. Baseball betting has been hazardous with the Chicago White Sox while the Minnesota Twins have been one of the hottest sportsbook betting commodities on the board.
Just when baseball betting fans start to believe in the Chicago White Sox they go right back into the sportsbetting tank. It has been a rough August for the South Siders as from August 6 through August 28 Chicago went into a baseball betting slump in which the lost 8-13 and fell in and out of the .500 mark. The White Sox have been an ineffective baseball betting traveler with a mark of 28-35 away from “The Cell.” Chicago has an inconsistent lineup that ranked 15th for run production. Their 8th ranked pitching staff is what has kept them in the baseball betting playoff race. The lineup consists of 3 main sources of power. Paul Konerko had 23 home runs and 76 runs batted in, Jermaine Dye had 24 home runs and 71 runs batted in, and Jim Thome had 23 home runs and 74 runs batted in. Scott Posednik was hitting .291 with 22 stolen bases and 60 runs scored.
The Minnesota Twins caught the hot baseball betting hand as from August 18 through August 28 they got the cash in 8 out of 10 games to climb back into contention and into a neck and neck race with the White Sox. Hitting is the Twins baseball betting strength as they ranked 8th overall in run production while their pitching staff ranked a poor 24th for staff earned run average. The Minnesota lineup is led by Joe Mauer, who was hitting .372 with 25 home runs and 79 runs batted in, Jason Kubel, who was hitting .300 with 20 home runs and 73 runs batted in, and Justin Morneau, who was hitting .293 with 29 home runs and 96 runs batted in.
The scheduled probable starters for this baseball betting matchup are right hander Gavin Floyd for the White Sox and right hander Armando Gabino for the Twins.
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.
