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.
The main portion of the MLB betting playoffs kicks off on Saturday night in Motown, where the Detroit Tigers hope to claim Game 1 of the ALDS against the Oakland Athletics.
It’s still amazing to think that Oakland is here in the playoffs as the No. 2 seed and the winners of the AL West. It was a remarkable comeback to get to this point, but now, every team is 0-0, and the A’s are clearly the team that lack the most experience and likely the most talent as well. Jarrod Parker gets the ball to start off this series, and he, like so many of the other Oakland pitchers, are about to embark upon the biggest games of their careers.
The pivotal Game 1 of the NLDS takes place on Saturday night for MLB betting fans, as the Cincinnati Reds face off with the San Francisco Giants.
The Reds are the higher seed in this game, but Manager Dusty Baker really has to be upset that his team is going to have to start on the road in San Francisco, a place that he used to manage. Baker nearly got the Giants a World Series in 2002, and he hopes that this trip to the playoffs is better than the last time his Reds were here.
The second ever Wild Card playoff game takes place at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on Friday night, where the Texas Rangers will hope to dispose of the Baltimore Orioles once and for all.
The O’s were the team to watch over the course of the season. They were just a lot of fun and refreshing. Sure, a lot of what they accomplished was just pure luck, but it was a team that had some grit and won a ton of close games (not to mention going 16-2 in extra innings).
MLB betting fans will get a chance to sink their teeth into the first ever Wild Card playoff game in baseball history, as the Atlanta Braves play a one game do or die against the St. Louis Cardinals at Turner Field on Friday afternoon.
The Cardinals are the defending World Series champions, and they are going to be under the gun in this one for sure. The good news is that they are going to be throwing a man in Kyle Lohse that went 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA this year.
The AL East race all comes down to this on Wednesday night. The Baltimore Orioles will be on the road to take on the Tampa Bay Rays in the rubber match of the final series of the year for these two teams.
Last year, drama happened on Game 162 for the Orioles and the Rays. This year, Baltimore is hoping that it once again all goes its way. The O’s still have their AL East dreams alive, and they could still even be the top seed in the American League if the chips fall right.
The disastrous season for the Boston Red Sox will come to close on Wednesday night in the Bronx, where they will try to play the role of the spoiler once again for the New York Yankees.
It truly is amazing to think how badly the Red Sox played down the stretch of this year. They were 53-51 and just two games behind the Baltimore Orioles on July 31st, but over the course of the last 2+ months of the season, they have gone 16-41 and have been the worst team in baseball.
And it comes down to the final day of the season. The AL West winner will be determined on Wednesday afternoon in the Bay Area, where the Oakland Athletics will hope to trip up the two-time defending AL West champs, the Texas Rangers.
The Rangers have fallen and choked away what was once a double digit win lead in the AL West. They need to win this game, or they are going to have to be playing in the Wild Card game on Friday, likely, but not necessarily at home.
