Rangers, Tigers On Top Of Respective Divisions Early

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 4/17/2013 7:26:07 PM

The Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers are right where many of the online betting experts expected them to be early on, which is on top of their American League divisions. The St. Louis Cardinals have done their part in the National League Central early on, but the Philadelphia Phillies off to another slow start and it could be a sign of things to come.

Texas Rangers @ Chicago Cubs
Thursday, 2:20 PM ET

This Rangers’ team continues to win games even after losing Josh Hamilton in the offseason, and while baseball fans in Texas want to see this team deliver in the postseason, they need to appreciate how consistent they have been over the years. Lance Berkman is hitting .389, and while the offense overall isn’t one of the best in the majors, the Rangers’ pitching has been simply dominant. Texas’ arms rank in the top-five in ERA, WHIP, and BAA, and Alexi Ogando has been a big part of that at 2-0 with a 1.08 ERA. Ogando will get the nod against a Cubs’ team that is still in rebuild mode, and will have Jeff Samardjiza back on the mound after logging consecutive losses.

MLB Betting Pick: Texas Rangers - 130

Detroit Tigers @ Seattle Mariners
Thursday, 3:40 PM ET

Detroit is a team that many online sportsbook experts think can get back to the World Series this year, and Thursday’s starting pitcher is among the biggest reasons for it. Justin Verlander is 2-1 with a 1.96 ERA, and now he has an excellent chance to add another quality start to his resume against a Mariners’ team that ranks 26th in team ERA. Seattle is still trying to find its identity on offense and it doesn’t help that they are without Michael Saunders, but they do have an emerging arm in Hisashi Iwakuma to pitch behind Felix Hernandez. Iwakuma is 2-0 with a 2.18 ERA, and if he can at least hold his own against Verlander then the Mariners could have a shot at home in this contest.

MLB Betting Pick: Seattle Mariners + 130

St. Louis Cardinals @ Philadelphia Phillies
Thursday, 7:05 PM ET

The Cardinals rank second in the majors in runs scored, and their pitching has been outstanding early on with nine quality starts and a combined 3.24 ERA. Adam Wainwright has bounced back from a loss in his season debut with back-to-back wins over San Francisco and Milwaukee, including a complete-game shutout against the Brewers in his last start. The Phillies are off to another slow start, and considering their pitching is actually their biggest problem it does not looking promising. Cole Hamels is 0-2 with a 7.56 ERA through his first three sports betting starts, and even when he gave up just one run over six innings against the Miami Marlins they lost 2-1, which really says something of where this team is at right now in the greater scheme of things.
