Red Sox at Athletics on Tuesday – MLB Betting

MLB betting on Tuesday has the Oakland Athletics hosting the Boston Red Sox in the 2nd game of a three-game series.

Gamblers who bet on MLB will want to pay attention to the pitching rotation for this series since Boston could be sending Daisuke Matsuzaka to the mound. Let’s look at this MLB betting matchup for Tuesday night.

MLB betting trends tell us that the Red Sox won 6 of the 10 games between the two teams a year ago. At Oakland though, the Red Sox were just 2-3. In 2007 the teams split their eight meetings but again it was a home team series as the A’s won three of the four home meetings against Boston in MLB odds.

Four of the six games at Oakland last year were very low scoring so that is something to keep in mind as you bet on MLB lines in this game. Matsuzaka got a 2-1 victory at Oakland as MLB betting numbers show in one of those low scoring games. The A’s have a much different lineup this season so it will be interesting to see if their low scoring trends in MLB betting continue in 2009.

Boston was just an average team on the road a year ago and since they sometimes are favored on the road, they lost people money who bet on MLB action last year away from Fenway Park. The A’s were nothing special at home a year ago, going 43-38 which also meant they lost MLB betting gamblers money since they were favored more than half of the time in their home games.

Gamblers who take the Red Sox on the road in MLB betting definitely have to pick and choose their spots. Boston is a far better home team and the MLB odds usually reflect that fact. The Red Sox can give gamblers who bet on MLB action some value on the road but history has shown Boston is just not a trustworthy team on the road.

Oakland has a much improved lineup this season that can impact MLB betting odds with Matt Holliday leading the way. The question for the A’s and for MLB betting gamblers is a pitching staff that has very few proven starters.
