Baseball betting odds on Friday have the Oakland Athletics favored at home against the Seattle Mariners.
It is the first of a three-game weekend series between the two teams. The teams have split their last 20 meetings as online baseball betting results show.
Baseball betting scheduling information shows that Seattle was expected to send Ryan Rowland-Smith to the mound while Oakland was going to counter with Sean Gallagher. Baseball betting trends show that the A’s have won 6 of the last 10 home games against Seattle.
The Mariners were a bust a year ago, both home and on the road in baseball betting. The Mariners actually had a losing record at home which is just unheard of in Seattle. Baseball betting gamblers just could not take the Mariners very often last season. Baseball betting information shows that Seattle brought back Ken Griffey Jr. this season but how much he has left is a question mark. The Mariners do have Felix Hernandez but he can’t pitch every game. The key for Seattle in online baseball betting is to get players like Rowland-Smith to have success. It will also be important for the Mariners to hit effectively since they have very little power that can impact baseball odds.
The A’s have some of the same issues that Seattle has but they did address some of them in the offseason. The Athletics added Matt Holiday and Jason Giambi to upgrade the offense. Oakland was pathetic last year in terms of runs scored so the addition of these two players should be huge in baseball betting. The problem for Oakland in online baseball betting is that they are depending on players like Gallagher to come through in the starting staff since they have no star starting pitchers.
Looking at the online baseball betting total we see that the under is 7-10-3 in the last 20 meetings between the two teams. At Oakland the baseball betting total has the under at 3-5-2. Seattle and Oakland look stronger offensively this season and weaker in pitching so those baseball betting trends could change.
This should be an interesting baseball betting series early in the season that gives a glimpse of which team is moving in the right direction. Get ready for the A’s and Mariners baseball odds and all of the other baseball betting action by opening an account at SBG Global.
