Fresh off two unexpected sweeps on their series, the Orioles and the Royals are gearing up to a ALCS that will have MLB Baseball Betting closely watching. Both teams are coming with high morale and a huge momentum, thanks to two great performances on their respective series. Also both teams came into the series expected to be the losing effort, but both Baltimore and Kansas City have steamrolled over their opponents.
The Royals are to be taken seriously as contenders. After their exciting and epic Wild Card Game comeback victory, they have displayed a very solid performance that could propel them to the American League Championship Series. This is the first time that they reach this stage of the post season since 1985, the year they last won a World Series. The question MLB Baseball Betting fans are asking is: Can the Royals advance to the World Series? It is hard to tell; at this point they were able to knock down two great and mighty opponents, at this point they are looking like the team to beat on the American League, however they still need to get past The Orioles.
Baltimore, on the other hand, is going to the ALCS for the first time since 1997. The Orioles, came into their series against the Detroit Tigers expecting the series to go to distance. But after two great games that had excellent displays of defense, the Orioles were able to keep the Tigers’ intimidating offense at bay. So much so that Detroit’s superstar Miguel Cabrera went 0-4 in the third decisive game. However the Orioles defense is not the only part of their game that is stellar, they have a great bullpen, a hard-hitting Nelson Cruz, and finally perhaps the best manager in this postseason. This could be the Orioles year.
MLB Baseball Betting fans can expect sparks to fly on this coming ALCS, as both teams can provide amazing baseball games. Expect this series to go to distance and maybe the new World Champs to emerge for this series.
