Bet on the MLBBaseball betting for game 4 of the National League Championship Series will be a sports betting matchup of a Philadelphia team with upper hand over Los Angeles. Baseball betting fans saw the Phillies take a 2-1 sports betting lead in this best of seven series with an 11-0 blowout win on Sunday.
The scheduled probable starters for Monday’s baseball betting matchup are left hander Randy Wolf of the Dodgers and right hander Joe Blanton of the Phillies. Wolf had a sports betting record of 11-7 this year with a 3.28 earned run average. In playoff action he has a 4.91 earned run average with the MLB betting odds this year.
Blanton had a baseball betting record of 12-8 with a 4.05 earned run average. So far in baseball betting playoff action this year he has a 4.91 earned run average.
Carlos Ruiz is having a strong playoff series so far for the Phillies with a .429 average and 7 runs batted in. Ryan Howard has been a significant baseball betting asset so far in post season with an average of .385 with 1 home run and 12 runs batted in. Reliever Brad Lidge has 3 saves and a perfect 0.00 earned run average. Relief pitching was considered Philadelphia’s baseball betting weakness entering the post season but so far it has been stellar.
Andre Ethier has been the baseball betting power source of the Dodgers lineup as he is hitting .450 with 2 home runs and 4 runs batted in with 6 runs scored. Other than that the Dodgers have not gotten the type of run production needed for consistent baseball betting success.
Philadelphia manager Charlie Manual said Sunday’s win was routine to his team.“We expect to win when we come to the ballpark, and that’s kind of who they are,” said the skipper.Wolf played his first eight years for the Phillies and will be motivated to show well in Dodger blue.
“I think it’s a lot of fun just being in a playoff game, an NLCS game against my former team,” said Wolf. “The fact that it’s a rematch from last year makes it exciting.”The Phillies have won 13 out of the last 19 meetings in this head to head series.
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.
