Bet on the MLBMLB betting fans have an American League sports betting matchup of a disappointment against a fading contender from Seattle as the Mariners host the White Sox. MLB betting on both teams has gone rough as of late as sports betting fans have been unable to get consistency out of either side heading into the stretch run towards the playoffs.
The scheduled probable starters for this MLB betting matchup are right hander Freddy Garcia of the White Sox and right hander Ian Snell of the Mariners. Garcia has been the more effective sports betting commodity this year against the MLB betting odds.Garcia has a MLB betting record of 1-2 with a 4.40 earned run average. In his last 3 MLB betting starts he has been sharp with a 3.00 earned run average. He has had poor MLB betting results in his career against the Mariners as he is 2-3 with a rather high 6.28 earned run average.
Snell has a MLB betting record of 6-10 with a 5.28 earned run average. In his last 3 MLB betting appearances he went 2-1 with a 4.70 earned run average. In his MLB betting career against the White Sox he is 0-2 with a 10.00 earned run average.Despite their inconsistent play the White Sox are still in the American League central division race as the Detroit Tigers have not played well enough to seal the deal. Chicago has gone a poor 31-40 on the road this year with just 29 out of those 71 games having gone over the total. After a stretch in which they lost 9 out of 10 games the White Sox won 7 out of their next 10 that followed from September 2 through September 12 with 9 out of those 10 games going under the total.
The Mariners were 39-30 at home this year and from September 5 through September 12 they lost 5 out of 6 games. Offense is what has kept the Mariners from taking the full step towards contention as they ranked a poor 28th in the majors for run production. Seattle’s 6th ranked pitching staff is what has made them such an improved team for 2009.
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.
