It is a good pitching matchup for gamblers who bet on baseball as James Shields goes for the Rays against Chicago’s John Danks.
Baseball betting stats tell us that Shields is 6-6 on the season with a 3.75 ERA while Danks is 8-6 with a 3.98 ERA. Shields has been up and down this season but still has a nice ERA. He is 1-1 with a 4.94 ERA against the White Sox in his career as baseball betting stats indicate.
Danks is coming off a win against Baltimore when he didn’t have his best stuff. He escaped all game though and only allowed three earned runs on seven hits. He is 4-1 with a 2.67 ERA in his career against the Rays. Back in April he allowed just one run on two hits in six innings against Tampa.
The Rays and White Sox had split their last 20 meetings before this baseball betting series began. Tampa has struggled somewhat on the road this season in baseball betting. It is not from a lack of offense though as their hitting has been in the Top 5 for most of the season as baseball betting statistics indicate. The pitching has been somewhat inconsistent on the road and that is one reason they have a losing record on the road in baseball betting at the sportsbook.
Chicago is still in the race in the American League Central but they need to improve their home record. They must find a way to be dominant at home if they want to win consistently in baseball betting. Chicago just has average hitting and pitching numbers and that is not going to get it done in baseball betting. John Danks is doing his part though and Chicago is always a threat for gamblers who bet on baseball when he is on the mound.
Gamblers who bet on baseball totals at the sports book will notice that six of the last ten games between the two teams at Chicago had gone under the baseball betting total. With Shields and Danks on the mound this game could easily end up going under the baseball betting total at the sportsbook. The trends also support the game going under the bet on baseball number so sports book gamblers might lean that way on Wednesday night.
