Baseball betting odds season is now in full swing. And while the baseball odds might still be taking a back seat to the NBA playoffs and the NHL post season, there’s still plenty of great opportunities.
Baseball odds aficionados should keep their eye out for Angels vs. Mariners showdown on May 18th. Baseball betting odds fans have to be bit surprised by the way the Mariners have come out of the gates in the 2009 season. A laughing stock of the baseball odds last Seattle looked like a completely different club this baseball betting odds season. The addition of Junior and some great pitching had helped this team go from the cellar to the penthouse at the beginning of the season.
But baseball odds fans have seen this team fold like a cardboard box. Going 2-8 over the past ten games the team has fallen from the top of the standings and fallen below .500, where it could stay for the rest of the baseball betting odds season if it’s not careful.
The Angels on the other hand started slow but seem to have gotten things back on track. Posting a record of 7-3 over their last ten match ups the team has climbed over .500 and into second place in the AL West baseball odds.
Still the Angels hold only a slim one game lead over the Mariners in the division standings and baseball betting odds and this series could the Mariners’ chance to climb back into the AL West chase. Ichiro-san has been fantastic this season, as always, but this year he’s gotten plenty of help from youngsters like Russell Branyan and Jose Lopez. Junior has gotten off to a slow start and if he heats up, it would be an added bonus for the Mariners’ baseball betting odds. King Felix, the team’s ace, has been touched for a few runs but still has a respectable 4-2 record. This team should be a tough baseball betting odds match up for the Angels.
LA comes to Seattle trying to catch the AL West leading Rangers in baseball betting odds. Baseball odds makers like the team’s chances against the Mariners and why not. This looks like a team that is finally finding its stride in the baseball betting odds. Starters Joe Suanders and Jared Weaver have been dynamite shutting down opponents with a combined 8-2 record against opposition. Torri Hunter is having a career year and the A’s are putting up runs in the baseball betting odds.
Take the Angels in this game and also take the baseball betting odds series.
