Baseball betting odds in South Florida are hardly flying off the shelf. For the Florida Marlins, a team that averages about 45 fans at the stadium for home baseball odds games, and the Arizona D-Backs, a team with little appeal outside the Southwest US
This game will probably be ignored by most of the baseball betting odds community. And that’s exactly why you should check out your local sportsbook for this May 21st showdown.
Baseball betting odds fans saw the Marlins get off to the hottest start in the 2009 season. On the way to setting a franchise record for the best start in history the team racked up an 11-1 record and looked ready to set the baseball betting odds on fire. However, since then the team can hardly find a win. A string of injuries to the pitching staff and some very close late inning losses against the baseball betting odds competition has dropped this team to .500 after posting an anemic 3-7 record over its past ten baseball odds showdowns.
Be that as it may, the team is still just a game and a half back in the NL East standings and the best team in the league at coming behind for a win in online betting. This team is like a cat in the sense that it seems to have 9 lines sometimes and just won’t die. Opposing baseball betting odds opponents have seen this team come back time and again to win with a walk-off shot in extra-innings.
That’s not good news for the D-backs, arguably the worst team in baseball betting odds. Nothing seems to be going right for this team in the 2009 season. The team’s top player and best pitcher in the NL over the last four years, Brandon Webb, has been held up with injuries and in his only start of the MLB baseball betting odds season was rocked for six runs in four innings of work.
The only pitcher with any decent stuff this baseball betting odds season has been Dan Haren who’s averaged seven innings a start and a miniscule 2.09 ERA. Yet he’s just 3-4 in eight baseball odds starts. Run support has been almost non-existent for this team and with a pitching staff with an ERA in the high single digits, there’s not much reason for hope in the baseball betting odds.
The only hope for the D-backs is the fact that the Marlins often play down to the level of their baseball betting odds opponent. But the Marlins are a much better team and they should get the better of this baseball odds match up.
