Observations Sports Betting Players Should Learn From Early On

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 4/2/2013 8:57:55 PM

The 2013 MLB regular season is underway, and there are so important things that we have learned from the first two days of action that every sports betting player should be conscious of early on. From the toll that mounting injuries are taking on the New York Yankees, to the dominance of a Washington Nationals’ team that hasn’t had to deal with injuries so far, to the way that the Detroit Tigers handled their pitching staff on their opening day, there was a lot to talk about after the first full day of baseball action in 2013.

The Yankees didn’t look very good in an 8-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox at Yankees Stadium on Monday, and it’s clear that the injuries the club is dealing with will effect their bottom line. New York is without Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, and Curtis Granderson, and the remaining pieces managed to score two runs on just six hits against Jon Lester and the Red Sox pitchers.

CC Sabathia couldn’t keep New York in it after he was tagged for four runs in second, and considering the difference between Boston’s lineup now and two years ago, that is a scary prospects going forward. This is not the same Yankees’ team that has found a way to win year after year, and it’s important not to overestimate what they are capable of doing in terms of online betting wins until they get healthy as the season progresses.

The Nationals are one team that hasn’t had to deal with injuries early on. In fact, with no limitations on what Stephen Strasburg can do in his second year back following Tommy John Surgery and a very deep lineup, Washington is among the most dangerous teams to look out for early on. Strasburg went seven innings of shutout ball in a 2-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Monday, giving up just five hits with three strikeouts before turning it over to a bullpen that finished things off. Strasburg will lead one of the strongest rotations in the majors this season, and with Bryce Harper poised to take another step forward after hitting the game-winning home run against Miami, keep an eye on the Nationals.

Another interesting note for online sportsbook players from Monday was the way the Detroit Tigers handled its pitching, including ace Justin Verlander. Verlander pitched five scoreless innings in a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Twins, allowing just three hits and striking out seven. The most important note may have been that he threw just 91 pitches, as the team could change things up and make sure they don’t tire his arm out too often when they feel the bullpen is capable.

The Tigers’ first save opportunity went to Phil Coke, and it appears Detroit will match up Coke, Joaquin Benoit, and Octavio Dotel depending on which pitcher they feel has the best chance of closing out the game. It’s important for players to take note of these changes early on, as injuries and notable trends contribute to how the early season plays out.
