Bet on the MLBMLB betting Tuesday features an American League west division matchup of playoff sports betting contenders as the Angels host the Mariners from Anaheim. MLB betting fans will have their choice of two top sports betting commodities that have played well as of late heading into the MLB stretch run.
The probable starting pitchers for this MLB betting matchup are right hander Felix Hernandez of the Mariners and left hander Scott Kazmir of the Angels. Hernandez has been the better sports betting commodity this season although Kazmir has improved recently against the MLB betting odds.
Hernandez had a MLB betting record of 14-5 with a 2.65 earned run average. In his last 3 MLB betting appearances he went 2-1 with a 2.57 earned run average. Hernandez is one of the top strikeout pitchers in all of MLB betting with 185 K’s in 193.1 innings of work. He is 4-5 lifetime against the Angels with a 4.40 earned run average.
Kazmir had a MLB betting record of 8-8 with a rather high 5.68 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 1-1 with a 2.29 earned run average. He is also a MLB betting strikeout artist with 99 in 117 innings of work. He is 3-2 lifetime against the Mariners with a 2.93 earned run average.
The Seattle Mariners have been one of the more profitable MLB betting commodities in the American League this year. They have been effective on the road with a mark of 33-35 which makes them profitable since they are a consistent road dog. Just 27 out of those 68 road games went over the total. Seattle has a weak hitting lineup that ranked 28th in run production but they ranked 6th in staff earned run average. Reliever David Aardsma had 34 saves and a 2.15 earned run average. Seattle won 6 out of 9 games from August 28 through September 5 to remain a viable wild card contender.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim rank near the top of the MLB charts for profitability on the board this year and were 39-26 at home with just 25 out of those 65 games having gone under the total. The Angels ranked 2nd in offense but 25th in staff earned run average. Kendry Morales led the lineup with a .312 average and 30 home runs.
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.
