Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox – MLB Betting

MLB betting odds have the Boston Red Sox favored at home against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night.

The Red Sox owned the Orioles last season in MLB betting, winning 12 of the 18 games. Gamblers who bet on MLB action with the Red Sox in their home games last year against Baltimore did very well, going 7-2 against the MLB odds .

MLB betting stats tell us that the Red Sox outscored the Orioles 113-76 in their 18 games last year. Boston was an excellent home team in 2008 going 56-25 at Fenway Park. They made gamblers who bet on MLB action some money even though they were favored in almost every home game last season. Baltimore was bad on the road a year ago at 31-50 but they were such big underdogs in MLB betting most of the time on the road that they didn’t lose that much money for MLB betting gamblers.

The Red Sox are always worthy of consideration in MLB betting when they are at home. Boston has been a good home team for many seasons and that continued in 2008. Boston has really done well in this series against Baltimore so if gamblers who bet on MLB action are going to take a shot with the underdog Orioles they do so at their own risk.

The problem for gamblers who bet on MLB action taking the Orioles is a very weak pitching staff. Baltimore can score runs but they rarely can get enough pitching to consistently win games in MLB betting. That is a major problem in this series against a solid Boston starting staff. MLB betting information tells us that the Red Sox have a solid rotation led by Josh Beckett and Daisuke Matsuzaka. This early in the season there are always pitching changes but the indications were that Brad Penny might get the start in this MLB betting matchup for the Red Sox.

The two teams combined to average 10.5 runs per game last year as MLB betting stats indicate. This game on Saturday could also be high scoring in MLB odds considering the Orioles have a solid lineup and the Red Sox can always score some runs. The over could be a popular wager in this matchup on Saturday.
