Betting Major League Baseball: Orioles vs. Red Sox in July 4th Massacre

Betting Major League baseball futures is one the truly great American pastimes and what could be better than celebrating the Fourth of July than by betting baseball future on our country’s 235th birthday?

There is a full slate of baseball betting opportunities on tap for the Fourth of July this year with all kinds of subplots and sports betting back stories.  But what could be more American than betting baseball futures on a good old fashioned beat down?  As Americans, we love sports and we love winners; we want not only to win, but to dominate.

And on July 4th when the Baltimore Orioles visit Fenway Park baseball betting fans should carefully go over the baseball betting futures available because this game will likely be a Boston massacre.

I simple tale of the tape makes obvious what most fans of baseball futures already know: the Orioles (24-54) are awful and the Sox (47-32) are one of the best team in the MLB odds competition right now.

The Orioles aren’t just bad, they’re terrible, the worst team in baseball betting actually and they have little to no hope of winning in Boston for many reasons.  But best reason to predict a Boston win and bet on the Sox in the baseball futures it the pitching matchup.

Baltimore will send struggling Brian Matusz to the mound (2-9, 4.90 ERA) to face the white hot John Lackey (9-3, 4.46 ERA).  Since coming over from the Angels Lackey has made quite an impression and hasn’t lost an MLB betting matchup since mid-May.  He may have gotten off to a rough start giving up 15 runs in his first three baseball betting starts in a Sox uniform but he’s rebounded nicely and is one of the hottest pitchers in the baseball futures competition right now.

The Orioles will have little to know chance of hitting him as their offense is pathetic and even if they do manage to get a few runs it will likely mean little as he’s generally gotten terrific run support from his team; especially at home where he’s gotten at least 8 runs in his last six Fenway starts.
