Baseball Betting – Kansas City at Oakland

May 17th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting on Tuesday includes a late night matchup in Oakland as the Athletics host the Kansas City Royals. It is the first game of a short two-game  betting online series between the two teams. Let’s look at some of the baseball betting stats for the Royals and A’s.

Baseball betting information tells us that Sidney Ponson may get the start for the Royals in this game on Tuesday. Ponson has been the weak link in the Royals starting rotation this season but he pitched a lot better in his last start and gets another chance. He was great against the Mariners in a 9-1 win in  betting. He has also been solid against the A’s in his career, going 4-3 against them including 3-2 at the Coliseum as  betting stats show.

Baseball betting trends tell us that the Royals have won 12 of the last 20 games against the A’s overall. Kansas City has won 6 of the last 10 games between the two teams at Oakland as  betting numbers show. It was all or nothing between these two teams a year ago in online betting. The A’s swept the Royals in Oakland in April while the Royals swept them at Oakland in July. The way these two teams look now it would seem more likely the Royals would get a sweep in online betting.

The Royals have been solid on the road this season in online sports betting and it is easy to see why. Kansas City has been first in the Major Leagues in pitching for much of the season led by their superstar pitcher Zach Grienke. The Royals offense has been pretty good ranking in the top half of the league as baseball betting stats show. Overall, the Royals have been a nice surprise in baseball betting online in 2009.

Oakland on the other hand has been a disappointment in online sports betting. The A’s were in the bottom third of the league on offense but at least their pitching was good, ranking in the Top 10. If the A’s can get Holliday and Giambi going then perhaps they can improve in baseball betting online.

There is not much to look at in regards to the  betting total. The under is 11-8-1 in the last 20 games between the two teams but just 5-5 in the last 10 at Oakland as baseball betting numbers show.
