The World Series championship is set to begin on Wednesday, October 24th and the first pitch will be at 8:00pm.
Wednesday nights’ game one of the 2007 World Series will be one of the most intriguing for baseball betting followers in quite some time. In recent baseball betting years the World Series has been uninteresting at best with no real big names or compelling baseball betting lines. That’s simply not the case this baseball betting season.
Baseball betting lovers can expect to see one of the best World Series in recent memory. For all you baseball betting fans who enjoy historic franchises, they don’t get much bigger than the Boston Red Sox. For the ones who like the underdog, franchises in the World Series are rarely more underwhelming. You like superstars? How about Big Papi, Manny, Curt Schilling and Todd Helton?
And for those baseball betting fans who like a compelling story line how about the Colorado Rockies winning 13 of their 14 regular season games just to qualify for a playoff game, to make the post season. The team won that game and hasn’t lost since, sweeping both its divisional and NLCS baseball betting series. The baseball betting lines will definitely show a lot more action this year.
Both baseball betting teams’ success in the playoffs can be attributed to their pitching. The Rockies, traditionally known as a ball club where pitchers go to die, lead the postseason with a microscopic ERA of 2.08. No, that’s not a typo. But the Sox are right there as well with playoff ERA of 3.60 through ten games.
In Game One baseball betting fans around the world will get a chance to see one of the best pitchers in all of baseball, Josh Beckett, see if he can extend his post season magic through another game. So far, this year and throughout his career, he’s been nearly perfect in playoff games. This year against the Cleveland and the Angels he’s averaging seven innings a start, 8 K’s a game and his a miniscule ERA of just 1.17.
But he’ll have his work cut out for him in a pitchers’ duel against the Rockies Game One starter Jeff Francis who has been pitching his brains out lately. Baseball betting fans saw how he’s produced on average six innings of work a night, 6 K’s and ERA of just 2.13 through two games. But it’s the Rockies bull pen that has been outstanding so far and will likely be its greatest strength against a powerful Boston line up.
It will be a close call in the baseball betting lines as both teams have plenty of offense to go with their pitching and when the series finally starts, it’s should shape up to be a classic.
