It is the middle game of a three-game set between the two teams. Gamblers who bet on MLB action will want to know that both teams had yesterday off since the first game of this series was the Dodgers home opener on Monday.
MLB betting scheduling information tells us the Giants are playing the 5th game of a six-game road trip but it is not too bad since they had yesterday off. The Giants held their own in MLB betting against the Dodgers last year, splitting the 18 games. The Dodgers held a slight 5-4 advantage in MLB odds at home against San Francisco a year ago. The Dodgers just barely outscored the Giants last year in the 18 games 69-61 as MLB betting statistics show.
The Dodgers were a very good home team a year ago at 48-33 but because they are almost always favored in MLB odds they just barely made gamblers who bet on MLB action any money. Conversely, the Giants were 35-46 on the road last season but because they are almost always underdogs in MLB betting they almost broke even for gamblers that bet on MLB games.
San Francisco is expected to be an improved team this season and they should get a good test against the Dodgers who most MLB betting experts are predicting will win the NL West. The Giants have a very good pitching staff that could cause Los Angeles some trouble in this MLB betting series.
MLB betting information tells us that the Dodgers still have a solid rotation and a good lineup led by Manny Ramirez. Joe Torre is an excellent manager and the Dodgers will still get a lot of attention from MLB betting gamblers in 2009.
Looking at the MLB betting total we find that the two teams averaged just over 7 runs per game in their 18 matchups last season. The Giants and Dodgers always seem to play those 3-2, 4-3 type of games regardless of who is on the mound and that might be the case again in this Wednesday matchup.
The Dodgers and Giants is always an exciting MLB betting matchup. You can bet on MLB action everyday at SBG Global so make sure you open your account today.
