To very unintimidating mascots will go head to head in the baseball betting when the Baltimore Orioles travel to muggy Miami to take on the Florida Marlins in what is unlikely to be considered the game of the week by any online betting site or baseball betting fan.
Baseball betting is the realm of many rabid and passionate fans but the one team that seems to be the exception to that rule is the miserable Marlins. Nearly halfway into the baseball betting season and the Marlins lead one very sorry statistical category: lowest attendance. With average sales of just 16,000 tickets per game (and as anyone that has ever bet on baseball games involving the Marlins knows, only about 400 actually show up) this team suffers more than any other team in baseball betting. Especially when you consider that the team’s entire payroll is less than about half of the Yankees starting line up.
Be that as it may this team of underappreciated and underpaid scrappers always seems to be in the baseball betting hunt. With a record of 33-36 the team is just five games out of the lead and worth a bet on baseball any day of the week. The Marlins have several decent starters who, as online betting experts admit, are a bit erratic.
At the plate is where this team earns its paltry baseball betting paycheck. The Fish are the masters of the comeback baseball betting win and many a game featuring Florida has been won with a walk-off hit. And that’s what makes this team such an interesting baseball betting option.
Baltimore is a very bad team and has little chance of winning this Thursday night baseball betting match up. Amongst the starting rotation the team has a couple 4-game winners; hardly the stuff of a baseball betting playoff contender. George Sherill has been admirable in the closer role with 13 saves and 2 blown opportunities with a 2.36 ERA.
At the plate the team is above average and can put some runs up, but the bull pen can’t keep them in it. The Marlins usually win games at home against inferior opponents and this should be a good chance to bet on baseball with Florida coming out the victor.
