One of the real treats of interleague play is that you get a chance to see some historic clubs from opposing leagues that would never otherwise play each other and it creates some intriguing matchups when betting Major League baseball.
On Sunday, June 20th the LA Dodgers will play be in Boston to take on the Red Sox in Fenway Park in what should be great chance for betting on Major League Baseball with plenty of opportunities for betting MLB props and futures.
The LA Dodgers head into the weekend in first place in the NL West after only recently regaining the top spot as the San Diego Padres dropped a few games in the betting Major League baseball action. LA has one of the best records in the NL at 38-28 and .500 (15-15) on the road this year in the betting Major League baseball action.
But as any visiting AL team knows, playing in Fenway complete different from playing in almost any other MLB betting stadium. When betting Major League baseball action fans should take this into consideration. Fans looking on betting Major League baseball on this game should also consider that this will be an unwelcome homecoming for current Dodger Slugger –and former Red Sox player- Manny Ramirez. But Ramirez is having an average season (.295 BA, 7 HR, 33 RBI) and his impact on the Dodgers success this year has been minimal.
If you’re thinking of betting Major League baseball action on this game the players that have been doing the damage for the Dodgers at the plate this year or Andrew Either (.339, 12 HRs, 43 RBIs) and Matt Kemp (11 HRs, 35 RBIs).
But the key to this betting Major League baseball game will be the pitching. Both teams will put talented starters on the mound (Boston: Clay Buchholz 9-4, 2.67 ERA; LA Hiroki Kuroda 6-4, 3.10 ERA). Buchholz is the better pitcher and is having a better year against the betting Major League baseball competition.
Look for the Red Sox (40-28) to win this baseball betting matchup and get one step closer to crawling back into the top of the AL East standings. The Sox enter the weekend just 2.0 back and could be in the lead with a good series vs. the Dodgers.
