MLB betting will offer two of the hottest teams on the sports betting Saturday as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim host the New York Yankees. MLB betting fans have seen the Angels climb back into first place while the Yankees sports betting run has put them right on the heels of the Boston Red Sox.
The scheduled probable starters for this MLB betting matchup are left hander Andy Pettitte for the Yankees and right hander Jared Weaver for the Angels. Both have struggled in their recent sports betting appearances.
Pettitte had a MLB betting record of 8-4 with a 4.53 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he was 1-1 with a 5.94 earned run average. He is 12-8 lifetime against the Angels with a 4.52 earned run average.
Weaver had a MLB betting record of 9-3 with a 3.15 earned run average. In his last 3 starts he went 2-0 with a 6.38 earned run average. He is 3-1 in his MLB betting career against the Yankees with a 6.11 earned run average.
The New York Yankees caught fire on June 24 and won 9 out of 11 MLB betting matchups through July 6. Hitting is the source of the Yankee resurgence as they are ranked number one in all of MLB betting for offensive run production. The Yankees had 8 players in their lineup with double digits for home runs with Mark Teixeira on top with 20 round trippers. Derek Jeter is having another solid MLB betting season as he is hitting .314 with 10 home runs and 35 runs batted in with 52 runs scored, not to mention 17 stolen bases!
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim also caught fire and from June 23 through July 6 they got the cash in 10 out of 13 games. They went 17-6 from June 12 though July 6 to be one of the most consistent money makers on the board. The Angels are much like the Yankees in that offense is their strength as they ranked 4th overall in run production. Torii Hunter was the source of power with 17 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.
