Barry Bonds is once again the bigger news heading into the MLB betting spring training competition and that’s just fine with the Giants. While Bonds has been garnering headlines the Giants have been quietly reloading their MLB betting arsenal in the hopes of competing for the bet on MLB pennant in the NL West this year.
MLB betting agree that there’s plenty to like about the Giants opening day MLB betting roster but aren’t quite sure if it will be enough to unseat the Dodgers. There is also one major gaping hole in the team’s MLB betting lineup: Power Hitting. This team is extraordinarily weak in this department and must improve or suffer the same 72-90 record of last season or worse. But the upside is this team is simply one good power hitter away from becoming a serious MLB betting contender. Talks with Manny Ramirez are ongoing but every bet on MLB expert believes he’ll resign with LA, which is also in desperate need of an MLB betting slugger.
Without a new power hitter this team returns just one hitter with more than 13 HRs from the ’08 MLB betting season (Bengie Molina, 16HRs). No team will win the NL West bet on MLB pennant with that kind of production. While the team has serviceable hitters (Randy Winn, Ray Durham, Rich Aurelia) the team needs a consistent deep threat to improve on their MLB betting record from last season. If the Giants don’t get Ramirez expect them to make a trade before the MLB betting home stretch.
On the mound the team team’s starting talent is as good as it gets in the NL West MLB betting. Ace Tim Lincecum may be the best pitcher in the NL if not all the MLB betting. Anyone that bet on MLB games against the Giants last year had to be impressed by the kid (18-5, 2.63 ERA, 227 Ks). He’ll be joined in the rotation this year by an aging Randy Johnson who still looks like he can get the job done. Toss in Matt Kaine and Barry Zito and this group has the potential to win 60 MLB Betting contests between them.
The Giants could finish anywhere between fourth and first in the NL West with the biggest variable being whether or not they can get their hands on a bona fide power hitter.
