White Sox, Angels, And Royals Try To Rescue Hemorrhaging Seasons

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/4/2013 7:46:48 PM

Wednesday is a “getaway day” in Major League Baseball, a midweek occasion when teams leave one city and travel to another. Which teams will leave with a smile?

Game 1: Chicago White Sox @ Seattle Mariners – Wednesday, June 5

Sports betting lines should lean ever so slightly in favor of the Mariners here. It’s worth pointing out that the White Sox led the Detroit Tigers by three games in September of 2012, but could not close out the Tigers in the American League Central Division race. Ever since the home stretch of the 2012 season, when the White Sox collapsed, they have never been the same team. In 2012, the White Sox cranked a lot of home runs, but they’re not getting the same amount of power hitting this season. They’re a light-hitting outfit that has been shut down rather consistently by opposing pitching staffs. Chicago was impotent in the first game of this series in Seattle on Monday night, getting handcuffed by Mariner starter Joe Saunders and multiple relievers.

In this tilt, Chicago will face Hisashi Iwakuma, a right-hander who will offer a change of direction from Saunders, a lefty. The Mariners are not a formidable hitting team in their own right, but they do have some quality pitching, with Iwakuma offering a strong second starter behind staff ace Felix Hernandez. Chicago is in trouble here; take Seattle in this one.

MLB Betting Pick: Seattle

Game 2: Chicago Cubs @ Los Angeles Angels – Wednesday, June 5

When the best online betting sites tackle this clash, they will point to the fact that the Los Angeles Angels are in a state of freefall. The Angels got swept at home in a four-game series this past weekend by the lowly Houston Astros, the second-worst team in baseball after the Miami Marlins. The Angels are already 11 games behind the Texas Rangers in the American League West and are more than seven games out of the final wild-card playoff spot in the American League. Their season is already in a state of crisis. It is not too early to say that the Angels have to produce a record that is at least four games above .500 in the month of June to have any realistic shot at a playoff spot this season. The Angels will be quite motivated to rebound from the Houston disaster, and against the Chicago Cubs – a team that entered June 4 with a record nine games below .500 – the Halos should be able to get healthy. Pick Los Angeles here, but don’t bet too much money on an unreliable team.

MLB Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels

Game 3: Minnesota Twins @ Kansas City Royals – Wednesday, June 5

In a test of online poker, it becomes apparent that the dealer matters. For Minnesota, one force who has really improved during the past two weeks is starting pitcher P.J. Walters, who will go to the mound in this game against Kansas City starter Jeremy Guthrie. Walters has propelled the Twins to a stretch in which they’ve won seven of 10 games, while Kansas City has lost eight of 10. Trust Walters to outpitch Guthrie and give Minnesota another triumph.
