Red Sox at Athletics on Monday – MLB Betting

MLB betting on Monday includes the opener of a three-game series between the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics.

This is a late West Coast game for those who bet on MLB to consider. Let’s look at some MLB betting numbers for the Red Sox and A’s.

MLB betting scheduling information tells us that the Red Sox are coming off a weekend series in Los Angeles against the Angels while Oakland was home against Seattle. Rest is usually not much of a factor early in the MLB betting season so what might have been an advantage for the A’s in this game is somewhat negated since it is still early in the Major League Baseball season.

Oakland does have a bit of an edge historically in this game as MLB betting trends show. They have done pretty well the past couple of years at home against the Red Sox for gamblers who bet on MLB games. Oakland was 3-2 last year at home versus Boston and 3-1 two years ago as MLB odds results tell us.

Fans that bet on MLB action should be aware that Boston has typically been a much stronger team at home than on the road. That doesn’t mean the Red Sox can’t win on the road, but it does mean that they are not going to win two out of three as they do at home in MLB odds. The Red Sox still have a potent lineup that can score runs and they have a solid pitching staff with Josh Beckett, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jon Lester that can win in MLB betting. It is possible that Lester gets the start in this MLB betting matchup.

Oakland should be improved this season if their pitching holds together. It is a very young starting staff but the talent is there. Early in the MLB betting season it will be tough to tell how well Oakland will pitch since their ace, Justin Duchscherer has been hurt. MLB betting information tells us that the A’s oftentimes struggle early in the season and turn it on late. That could happen again in MLB betting this year.
