MLB betting will offer a worst from the west best from the east American League matchup to bet on sports with from Fenway Park in Boston as the Red Sox host the A’s. MLB betting on Oakland has not gone well at all this year while the Red Sox continue to be one of the best teams to bet on sports with as the top team in the AL east.
Boston has led the AL east race for most of the MLB sports betting season and was fighting to stay ahead of the hard charging New York Yankees and the upstart Tampa Bay Rays in the most talented division in all of baseball to bet on sports with.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers for this MLB betting matchup are right hander Trevor Cahill of the A’s and right hander Tim Wakefield of the Red Sox. Cahill has a MLB betting record of 5-7 with a 4.55 earned run average. He has really struggled in his last 3 MLB betting appearances, however, with a record of 1-2 and an 8.16 earned run average. He has never faced the Red Sox in his career.
Wakefield is 10-3 with a 4.30 earned run average. In his last 3 MLB betting appearances he went 1-0 with a 3.92 earned run average. He is 10-6 in his MLB betting career against Oakland with a 4.07 earned run average.
The Oakland Athletics have spent the MLB betting season in the cellar of the American League west and have shown no signs of getting out of the huge hole that they dug themselves at the start of the campaign. The A’s have a weak offensive lineup that ranked 24th overall in run production while their pitching staff ranked 17th for staff earned run average.
The Boston Red Sox, on the other hand, ranked 3rd in offensive run production and 9th overall for their staff earned run average making them one of the best and most balanced teams on the board. Jason Bay has belted 19 home runs as the main power source.
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.
