New Possibilities Emerge As The Baseball Season Gains Momentum

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 4/11/2013 7:26:30 PM

It’s Friday, which means that new series are beginning in Major League Baseball after the travel day on Thursday. We’ll see if new matchups pry loose some new revelations in the sport.

Game 1: San Francisco Giants @ Chicago Cubs – Friday, April 12

Sport betting lines will probably favor the Giants in this game. Matt Cain, the megabucks ace who has largely justified his immense salary with his performance on the hill, will go to the mound for San Fransisco, while Jeff Samardzija, a former wide receiver for Notre Dame’s football team, will go to the bump for the Cubbies. Samardzija has good stuff, and what’s more is that he hit 97 miles per hour with his fastball when he was near 100 on his pitch count in his most recent start. He has a live and durable arm.

However, Samardzija struggles with his location and is simply not as effective as Cain is. One would have to think that the Giants are going to find ways to touch up Samardzija for at least a few runs, while Cain is capable of tossing a three-hit shutout any time he takes the ball. The odds certainly will give Samardzija a chance, but they’ll fundamentally slide over to the side of Cain and the Giants on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco

Game 2: Baltimore Orioles @ New York Yankees – Friday, April 12

When the best online betting sites tackle this clash, they will view it as a game the Yankees should be favored to win. Chris Tillman is the starter for the Orioles, a talented and improving young player who can form the nucleus of a strong pitching staff that, if held together over the next several years, could really be something special for the Baltimore franchise.

However, for all the ways in which Tillman might help the Orioles, one has to realize that he’ll be going up against New York ace C.C. Sabathia, who was in midseason form this past Sunday when he shut out the Detroit Tigers and their very impressive lineup. It would be foolish to bet on the Orioles in this game. Sabathia is a beast who might not excel all the time, but who certainly has earned a bettor’s trust when he takes the hill.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Game 3: Atlanta Braves @ Washington Nationals – Friday, April 12

This is not quite high-stakes poker, at least not in April. However, this matchup would certainly seem to favor the Washington Nationals, because they have the better dealer. Julio Teheran is the starter for the Braves. He’s a new hope for the organization, someone who is being looked to as a pitcher who can take the spot in the rotation that was left behind when Tommy Hanson was dealt to the Los Angeles Angels in the offseason. Ross Detwiler, unlike Teheran, was a core part of his team’s successes last season.

The starter for the Nats in this game, Detwiler brings a more proven identity to the ballyard than Teheran. It seems difficult to think that the Braves should get the nod here. Washington is the wiser choice.

MLB Betting Pick: Washington
