Baseball betting on Sunday includes an ESPN televised contest in San Francisco as the Giants host the New York Mets.
Baseball betting online scheduling information tells us this is the finale of a four-game series between the two teams. Let’s take a look at this sports betting matchup for Sunday night.
Baseball betting on the Mets is oftentimes popular simply because it is a New York team. The Mets have done okay against the Giants recently as baseball betting stats show. Before this four game series began, the Mets had won six of the last ten games at San Francisco. The Mets have been about .500 on the road this season versus baseball betting online odds.
New York has been winning games in sports betting with a pitching staff led by Johan Santana. The Mets have been in the Top 10 in the league in pitching as baseball betting online stats indicate. The problem for the Mets has been on offense where they have been very inconsistent. David Wright has gotten off to a very slow start and if not for Carlos Beltran, the Mets would really be struggling to score runs. The Mets also need to find some pitching behind Santana. The rest of the staff has been very inconsistent and that needs to change if the Mets are to contend in the National League East this season.
The Giants have been a team to watch at home this season in baseball betting. For some reason the Giants have been much better at home than on the road versus the baseball betting online number. When the Giants win games versus the baseball betting odds they get great pitching. With Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and other young pitchers, the Giants can be a force at times versus the baseball betting odds. Even Randy Johnson can win games versus the baseball betting odds.
Baseball betting totals numbers are really split on this matchup. Before this baseball betting series began the teams were 5-5 in terms of over/under in their last 10 meetings at San Francisco. It would make sense in this sportsbook matchup that the under would be the way to go in baseball betting, especially with the starting pitchers on each team.
