The 2012 ALDS series between the Oakland Athletics and the Detroit Tigers will wrap up on Thursday night at the O.co Coliseum with Game 5.
The home team has won all four of the games in this series, but Justin Verlander is going to be the favorite to make that trend stop to end this series. Though the truth of the matter is that Oakland had the home field advantage in this series, it would have felt like an epic collapse after going up 2-0 against the A’s.
The road team has won all four games of the NLDS, and on Thursday afternoon, either the Cincinnati Reds or the San Francisco Giants are going to be punching their ticket to the NLCS.
The Giants have to be considered tremendously lucky to still be in this series, and the argument could be made that they should be the favorites to survive into the NLCS. The man on the mound is going to be Matt Cain in this one, and he is going to hope to continue the great pitching fortunate that San Francisco has had over the course of the last two games in this series.
Game 3 of the ALDS takes place for MLB betting fans in the Bronx, as the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles both hope to push the other to the brink of elimination on Wednesday night.
Baltimore couldn’t be all that happy about just getting a split back at Camden Yards, but at least it has a chance to still win this series, knowing that it can win two out of three here at Yankee Stadium.
Someone will be taking a 2-1 series lead into the fourth game of the NLDS on Wednesday afternoon, and the two teams that will be duking it out in Game 3 for MLB betting fans will be the Washington Nationals and the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cards can’t really feel good about their prospects of taking two out of three here in DC, but at least they struck most recently when they put up a whopping 12 run in a romp of the Nationals two nights ago.
Home field advantage has held up thus far in the first two MLB betting battles of the ALDS, and tonight, the Oakland Athletics have to hope that that continues when they take on the Detroit Tigers, or their season will come to a crashing halt.
The Tigers knew what they had to do in the first two games of this series, and they did just that.
The Cincinnati Reds can become the first team in the bigs to punch their ticket to the league championship series on Tuesday afternoon for MLB betting action, as they try to close out the San Francisco Giants in Game 2 of the NLDS.
San Francisco knows that its task is virtually impossible, and it has to win today if it has a shot of extending its season for at least one more game.
The fourth day of MLB postseason betting action starts on Columbus Day at Busch Stadium, where the St. Louis Cardinals look to avoid an 0-2 hole to the upstart Washington Nationals.
If you want to know what the Nationals are all about this year, just go back to Sunday and look at a tape of Game 1. It was a terrible outing for Gio Gonzalez, who walked seven batters and had no clue where the strike zone was, and the bats had nothing at all going for the majority of seven innings.
Those pesky Baltimore Orioles are back for MLB betting action on Monday night in Camden Yards, where they will be taking on the New York Yankees in what very well could be a must win game if they have any hope of saving their season
The Yankees did what they had to do last night, taking down the O’s in front of a very excited crowd in Baltimore.
For the first time in baseball history, two teams in the same division will face off in the ALDS, as the Baltimore Orioles take on the New York Yankees at Camden Yards.
New York has to be a bit surprised that it is in this situation coming to Baltimore instead of going to Arlington for the first game of the postseason, but the truth of the matter is that it didn’t change anything that Manager Joe Girardi was going to do.
The Washington Nationals play their first playoff game in their second ever playoff series in franchise history on Sunday afternoon at Busch Stadium in Game 1 of the NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Nats had the best record in baseball this year with 98 wins, and they are going to try to prove that they can get the job as the World Series winners. It’s going to take 11 victories to do that, and the man that gets the first chance to do that is Gio Gonzalez.
