Baseball Betting Odds: Rockies vs. Tigers Preview

Baseball betting odds experts expected to see the Detroit Tigers hoist the World Series Trophy last season after assembly a team of free-agent mercenaries.

Obviously that didn’t happen and the Tigers struggled in the baseball odds just to remain respectable. The Rockies are team also struggling to prove to the baseball betting odds that they have a legitimate shot at the baseball betting odds post season and would love to take a game in Detroit to prove the point.

Baseball betting odds for this May 23rd showdown should be interesting. On paper the Tigers have one of the best teams in the baseball betting odds, but they’re record over the past two years betrays their talent. Baseball odds makers had them listed as the World Series favorites just a year ago.

This year, despite a slow start to the baseball betting odds schedule, it seems as if the Tigers might finally live up their baseball odds expectations. The team now finds itself tied for first in the AL Central with the ’09 baseball betting odds darlings, the KC Royals. And every indication seems to be that the team is only going to get better against their baseball betting odds opponents.

Miguel Cabrerra is finally playing up to his potential after some time to acclimate and is legitimate baseball betting odds MVP contender (8 HR, 25 RBIs, .361 BA). Brandon Inge has been outstanding with 9 HR but the team still hasn’t gotten any baseball betting odds production from its stars Magglio Ordoñez or injury-plagued Carlos Guillen. When those two start swinging the bats again this offense will be one of the most potent in the baseball odds.

The Tigers starting pitching has been mediocre, but competent and as long as the offense keeps up its end of the baseball betting odds favorite, it will be enough. They could use some better closing pitching as well, but despite his 4.85 ERA, Fernando Rodney is a perfect 6-0 in save opportunities.

The Rockies are the complete opposite of their opponents in this baseball betting odds match up. While the Tigers aren’t quite playing up their potential, the sad truth is that Rockies at 13-19 might actually be playing beyond their baseball betting odds potential. Colorado simply isn’t a very good team and all things considered, the Tigers should have an easy time with this baseball betting odds show down.

Pick the Tigers to come out on top of the baseball betting odds and perhaps even sweep the series.
