Baseball betting features dozens of teams and an almost endless supply of sports betting match ups.
Yet it’s very rare that two cross town teams meet in the subway series. Every baseball betting fans knows about the much-hyped Mets vs. Yankees battles, but the West Coast has its own juicy versions which include the Giants vs. A’s.
Baseball betting will be headlined by this match up on June 23rd. If you’re looking to bet on baseball this could very well be the most intriguing game on the sports betting board. In recent years the A’s have dominated the baseball betting in the Bay Area. But this year in twist of fate the inevitable has taken place and the Giants have pulled into the bet on baseball lead.
Oakland has trailed off considerably since their baseball betting hey-day just a few years ago and currently finds itself in last place in the AL West standings. The team’s once dominating pitching staff has been sold off or left in free agency and the team has been unable to replace their aces and the team’s offense is anemic by any bet on baseball standard.
The Giants have been one of the beneficiaries of the A’s pitching exodus signing former Oakland hurler Barry Zito. So far this year Zito has stunk it up. But he’s a former Cy Young winner still in his prime and he’s shown signs of baseball betting success this year as well.
With a record of 34-31 the Giants would be in contention in most baseball betting divisions. But in the NL West the LA Dodgers have run away with the division lead and San Fran is still nine baseball betting games back. The Giants are also one of the worst hitting teams and will likely make a move to get some power at the plate in mid-season.
Another strike against the Giants is the fact that they’ll have the worst of their regular starters on the mound in Jonathan Sanchez (2-7, 5.43 ERA). And that might be enough of a break for the A’s to come out of this thing with a baseball betting victory.
Oakland will likely be sending out Josh Outman to the mound as their baseball betting starter. With a 4-1 record and a 3.43 ERA he’s a very effective pitcher. Given that the A’s will be playing at home and looking for a little revenge for 2-game sweep at the Giants, bet on baseball for Oakland to get the win in this baseball betting duel.
