Baseball Betting on Texas at Oakland

November 30, 2010 MLB Baseball

Baseball betting on Tuesday includes an American League West matchup between the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics. It is the 2nd game of a four-game bet on baseball series.

Here is a look at this baseball betting matchup between the Rangers and A’s for Tuesday night at the sportsbook.

Baseball betting odds at the sports book will be close on this matchup that should see Brandon McCarthy facing Edgar Gonzalez. McCarthy is 7-3 on the baseball betting season with a 4.97 ERA while Gonzalez is 0-2 with a 4.74 ERA. In his last start, McCarthy lost 6-1 to the A’s. He allowed four runs in just over three innings of work. He is 2-1 with a 5.17 ERA in three starts since returning from the DL. He is 3-2 with a 6.10 ERA in seven baseball betting starts on the road. He is 1-4 with an 8.27 ERA in his career against the Athletics as baseball betting statistics show.

Gonzalez was moved into the rotation as the sixth man to give the other starters more rest. He pitched well against the Rangers last time out giving up only one run in just over four innings.

Before this baseball betting series began the A’s had won six of the last ten at home against Texas. The A’s had won four of the six at home this season in baseball betting against the Rangers.

Texas was a nice story for a while in baseball betting this season but they have fallen out of the bet on baseball race. Too many injuries and not enough pitching have caused the Rangers to disappear in the Wild Card race. The Rangers at one time were in the Top 10 in both hitting and pitching but that is no longer the case in bet on baseball numbers.

Oakland has had a disappointing season all the way around in baseball betting but at least at home they can be competitive versus the sports book odds. The A’s have a solid young pitching staff and are building for the future. The have shown they can definitely compete with the Rangers in Oakland as they have a winning record in baseball betting against them this season.
