MLB betting has a worst versus first American League east division sports betting matchup from Boston as the Red Sox host the Orioles at Fenway Park. MLB betting has not gone well on either team as of late and the Red Sox have fallen into a sports betting tie with the arch rival New York Yankees for first place in the division.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers for this MLB betting matchup are right hander Jeremy Guthrie of the Orioles and left hander Jon Lester of the Red Sox. Lester has been the far more effective sports betting commodity as of late.
Guthrie has a MLB betting mark of 7-8 with a 5.12 earned run average. In his last 3 MLB betting appearances he went 1-1 with a 5.19 earned run average. He is 1-2 lifetime against the Bosox with a 4.01 earned run average.
Lester had a MLB betting mark of 8-7 with a 3.87 earned run average. He was stellar in his last 3 appearances with an earned run average of 1.66 while going 1-1. Lester has owned the Orioles throughout his MLB betting career as he is 8-0 with a 2.18 earned run average.
The Baltimore Orioles have many MLB betting weaknesses including an inability to win on the road. Baltimore was 15-31 away from Camden Yards this year. They have also trended over on the road with just 18 out of those 46 games having gone under the total. The Baltimore pitching staff has been one of the worst in MLB betting and ranked 28th in staff earned run average at 4.98. Luke Scott led the Orioles with 18 home runs while Adam Jones was hitting .300.
The Red Sox continue to be one of the toughest home teams in baseball although they are also one of the most expensive. Boston was 31-14 at Fenway Park with just 17 out of those 45 games having gone over the total. The Red Sox are a highly balanced team that ranked 5th overall in run production and 7th overall in staff earned run average.
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.
