MLB Gambling Preview: Giants will dominate Orioles 6/16

For two teams with such vastly different MLB gambling records there are actually quite a few similarities between the Baltimore Orioles and the San Francisco Giants.

Neither team is good at driving in runs, neither team scores very often in the baseball wagering competition and neither team is currently in first place in their division.

But that’s about where the similarities end and the MLB gambling gulf between these two teams is opened up.  True, the Giants are tremendously challenged on offense (just ask anyone who’s made a big MLB gambling play on this team only to watch it go down the pipes as the Giants loose 2-1 or 1-0).

Yet San Fran has still ran up a record of 37-27 through a third of the MLB gambling season because it’s got the best starting rotation in baseball wagering right now.  It’s collective team ERA of 3.31 is the best in the Big Leagues and the reason why this team has been so successful despite not having a single player on its roster batting over .300, and just one player with more than 40 RBIs and one player with double digit HRs.

The starting rotation has been tremendous so far this MLB gambling season and barring injury this team will be in the playoff betting hunt come September.  Barry Zito leads the team in wins with a 7-2 record but the ace of the staff is two time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum, arguably the best pitcher in MLB gambling over the past two years.

Lincecum has a 6-2 record with a 3.12 ERA and leads the league with 96 Ks in 86.2 IP.   

Unfortunately for the Orioles he’s the starting pitcher the team will face when these two teams square off by Bay on June 16th.

The Orioles are awful at scoring runs and arguably even worse at preventing the other team from scoring.  This is quite simply the worst team in MLB gambling with a record of 18-47 and they have little to no chance of winning this baseball wagering contest.

The team will have its best starter, Jeremy Gutherie (3-7, 3.83 ERA) but it won’t matter, the Giants will win this MLB gambling matchup.
